Dance Party

Eliana and I love to dance. Yes, I know that she can't walk yet, but I hold her and we dance in our living room. Usually Ellie and I listen to some guilty pleasure like, NYSNC or Miley Cyrus, but today we danced to worship music. Recently I have been listen to a particular worship song that I just love sooo much!It's called Revelation Song. So today I put the song on, scooped Ellie up in my arms, and started to spin around and bounce to the beat. Ellie was laughing and lifting up her "praise arm." We had so much fun! Anyway, I love the song so much, mostly because of its amazing I have posted them below.
As you read them, imagine Ellie and I getting our praise on!

by Jennie Lee Riddle

Worthy is the,
Lamb who was slain
Holy, holy, is He
Sing a new song
to Him who sits on
Heaven's mercy seat

Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come
With all creation I sing:
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything,
And I will adore You

Clothed in rainbows
Of living color
Flashes of lightning, rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor, strength and
Glory and power be
To You the only wise King

Filled with wonder
Awestruck wonder
At the mention of Your Name
Jesus, Your name is power
Breath, and living water
Such a marvelous mystery

10 Things I Love About Ellie

Of course there are hundreds of things I love about my little girl, but I have composed a list of things I have seen over these past few weeks that crack me up or make me smile...

1) When she wakes up from a nap she always looks baffled about being awake

2) I love that she laughs when other people laugh even if she has no idea whats going on.

3) I love that she picks up dirt off of the floor and hands it to me as if she is saying, "Hey mom you really need to vaccum"

4) I love that she says "Mama" and reaches for me when she is upset

5) I love her smile. Even when I'm upset her smile makes me smile

6)I love that when I'm running to stop her from pulling something off of a shelf she crawls faster and laughs, she thinks we're playing a game.

7) I love that Ellie bounces up and down in her high chair when we are about to feed her fruit or veggies

8) I love that Ellie always ALWAYS tries to pull her socks off. I think she likes to feel the carpet on her cute little feet.

9)I love that when I'm giving her a bath she always kicks and splashes and giggles with delight

10) And I love that if I'm crying or frustrated, Ellie always stops what she is doing and crawls in my lap and snuggles with me. (Its like she knows whats happening)
