Hello world of burping, boogers and gummy grin “coos”! I’m Alex Powers and WELCOME BACK TO “I Can, I Will, I DO!”
YES. I DID IT. I HAD A BABY.
A little, although ever growing, and already rambunctious (that’s likely an understatement) girl named Xena. And I am madly in love with her.
The name is Greek, and is the combination of the hubs and my last two letters of each of our names jordAN & alEX (X E N A). It’s also superhero-centric, you may have heard the name described as “warrior princess” which works right in with my “Powers” last name theme.
This girl’s got every emotion in the book, and I’m sure like most new-ish-borns, and is willing and able to display all of them, usually at the same time. As a FTM (“first time momma”) it’s pretty impressive. I get a giggle followed instantly by a whine and wail. Perplexing to say the least, but I’m just now beginning to learn the ever-changing rules to her game. Check mate!
These past four months – yes, it’s been FOUR MONTHS – have been my wildest adventure to date.
I can’t wait to fill you in, and PROMISE I will (now that I’m getting more than three hours of sleep … most nights) begin writing again, and much more!
Back to you soon – or as Xena and I have been saying it “goo ah goo!”.
