My favorite part of the day is definitely getting Ellie out of bed in the morning. She grins so widely, scrunches up her usually-wide eyes, and gets so excited that her breathing picks up and her little arms start to shake. She is such a darling! I have written before about how Everett's death changed me and taught me. Ellie teaches me daily and stirs a joy in me that is almost unmatched.
It is an exquisite thing to know a person from the very beginning. And I am enjoying every moment!
