Amy Henderson graduated from the University of Washington more than 60 years ago and began working with Cenla babies at Cabrini after marrying her Texan husband.

Henderson is known for always having a smile on her face, and a song to sing to relax the babies.

The nurse said her favorite songs to sing are bible school songs and camp songs, sometimes she even makes them up.

On Saturday before releasing a baby girl named Alexander, she sang to her.

“Oh look, you've got a cute pink outfit on, we can make a song about that,” Henderson sang. “Little girl in her pink outfit, she looks so sweet being so kind, so let's check the diaper to see how it is."
