A New Father Sings A Precious Song About Dreams To His Baby
Matt Finch is a proud new father to a beautiful baby girl named Ivy. In his younger days, he was in a few bands and so one of his friends joked that he should have a go at writing a song for his new daughter. Matt took him up on that suggestion, and on September 8, he sat down next to Ivy with a guitar and wrote a song about her dreams. He posted the video around 11 p.m. for some friends and family and didn't expect more than a few of the customary "cute baby" likes from them. By noon the next day, it had already been seen by over 7,000 people, some as far as Australia. To date, it's got nearly 400,000 views and counting.
Matt says that he's not that good at the "soppy dad stuff," which is why he chose her dreams as the subject instead. Apparently, 11-day-old Ivy helped out by nodding to the parts she enjoyed and stopping at the parts she didn't. After the overwhelmingly positive response, he also said may consider writing some more children's songs and seeing if anything comes of it.
