As she wrapped the soft muslin blanket around him, William scrunched up his face and let out a little cry, as if to protest us disturbing him. Alex scooped him up, cradling him in her arms as she gently bounced him, swaying side to side. Quietly shh-ing him while comforting her baby, Alex’s face broke out into a giant smile and she stole a quick look at her husband Louie. The new parents exchanged a quiet smile: look at him. We created him.
Watching your friends become parents is always a wicked cool milestone. I was thrilled to spend a quiet morning with Alex and her handsome guys. William is surrounded by so much love. Louie is an incredibly attentive daddy, checking on William with each coo and whimper. Alex has stepped into her role as mama with a humble grace that is heart warming. I’m so excited for this sweet family as they enter a new season of life! Meet William!
