Goodnight Wesley Bear (And Other Melodies)

When we put Bug to bed we pray and sing two songs, Goodnight Sweetheart and Edelweiss. Wesley Bear is a cherished friend, so Bug exercises the same loving care when it's time for him to go to sleep. video

This got me to thinking about when Bug was 2, and she loved the song Oh Little Town of Bethlehem. Wait for the "oh baby Jesus" at the end.

And at 23 months, Away in a Manger...

Elle,

What a lucky bear she has to be lulled into sleep by her beautiful angelic voice. I was crying so much I had a hard time just getting through her videos. She is a true blessing to your family and I can only imagine just how loving God is smiling down on all of you.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

She is so very precious but it comes from having such wonderful parents like the both of you to instill those sweet values in her.

I can't wait until the twins are singing along with her.

OK as soon as she started Edelweiss I started to cry. I haven't even gotten to the other two!

The "oh baby jesus" is so funny its repeating over and over in my head.

very cute, can I admit to getting the giggles at the last one?! How funny is her little sway and croaky voice! She's desperately cute! My boy's 23 months - think we're a way off singing talent like that! Must be in the genes!

America's Got Talent! That girl is amazing! She loves lowing cattle, doesn't she!!!

Elle Bee said...

Caryn, Wesley was my grandfather's middle name. I've always loved that you have a Wesley, as it is a name close to my heart, and also just a cool, unique name!

Alice, Yeah, she kinda got hung up on lowing cattle! HA! Like a skipping record. he hehe :o)

Relyn said...

OH, there is just nothing like a sweet childish voice singing with abandon.

Susan said...

Oh so beautiful! Tears here, too! I can't believe she knows all the words to Edelweiss! And can carry the tune! She will be playing one of the Von Trapp children very soon.

She is a very talented little girl.

Dana said...

I can't imagine anyone NOT being comforted by such angelic sounds! Priceless!

Meghan said...

My goodness. Can she get any cuter?? I am amazed at how well she can carry a tune. We're all about the ABC's and The Wheels on the Bus over here...
