We recently discovered that Elise loves the song, "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?" Her reaction to it is seriously the cutest thing ever. I'm not sure what's fascinating about it to her. Usually she likes the fast, upbeat loud songs and has never watched the movie. Something about this song makes her extremely happy and that happiness is contagious as you watch her light up the room. In the midst of all of her complexity it is an amazing moment when she relaxes and has her big open-mouth smile. These moments of clarity and expression is a beautiful reminder that a soul consists of a spirit and a body. In these moments it is as if Elise does not need a body to express her magnificent spirit inside.
*Please pardon the noises from her little brother Cal (but he's pretty cute too!)
**She particularly likes the beginning of the song . . . sorry for the repeats!
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
