Hi friends! I'm Lex from He&I. I'm a wife to B and a (new!) mom to Miss E.
We welcomed our daughter to the world on a warm September afternoon. Our lives haven't been the same since. We have a few more bags under the eyes, our conversations have turned to burps and diapers, and walking through our house is like playing an I-Spy game with pacifiers. And yet, we wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world. There's nothing more miraculous than bringing a child into the world. (And nothing more nerve wracking!) I will never forget the long awaited day that we met little E. I finally became a mother. My first thought was "I know you! I know you!" as I saw her head full of hair and her little fingers grasped mine for the first time. I was smitten. I knew her little hiccups because I felt them in my tummy daily. I knew that her awake time was four in the morning. I knew her little kicks and flailing arms. I knew her. Better than anyone else. And the best part was, she knew me.
I am a mother. And I wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world.
