Ellie's Name

The other day decided, for no apparent reason, to look up the meaning of Ellie's name. For some reason, we had never done this... I almost cried when I saw that it meant...


I shouldn't be surprised. I always knew Ellie was special. I always knew she was our light. I've said it before, but I am so grateful that I was chosen to be the Mommy of such an amazing little girl!

"This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine"

Yes, we did a lot of playing in the Tupperware...

Remembering September 11th, 2010
Our friends came with us to take the kids to the Apple Orchard. It didn't go well. It was cold and SO windy. We were just starting to really understand that something was going on with Max, and he didn't do well at all in the new environment. Ellie did pretty good, until she got tired and fell asleep...

Ellie and Nikki: Ellie always made this face when it was windy! I love it!!
A typical Ellie smile! Goofball!

I totally thought you named the org Ellie's Light because her name means light--I only know this because if we ever have another little girl, I want to name her a name that means 'light' so I've been researching this, haha :) My favorite song is Let it Be and the line that I always sing over and over again is "and when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me." I love thinking of your little Ellie as a light shining down on her mama. XOXO
