Remember Rea and Alex from last year's An Urban Love Story? Well, they're preggers! Little Sophie is due around the end of May and I am OVER THE MOON excited to meet her!! I should tell you that Rea has been my bestie since middle school, just so you don't think I'm a weirdo. We've got history together. Rea and Alex are like family to me and watching them begin this new phase of life has made me so happy. I cannot wait to meet/kiss/squeeze/laugh at/spoil this child!
Let's chat about Rea and her flawless body for a hot second. I just feel the need to give her perfectly taut bump and strong lean legs a shout out. Rea is in impeccable shape and deserves some credit. She is a plant eater and a lover of fitness. She listens to her body's cues. She is also an amazing writer. One of her blogs, My Veggie Baby, is a great resource for anyone wanting to get healthy, but I've found it especially helpful for expectant mamas. It's full of witty stories, recipes, and helpful links. Check it out.
Behind any good woman is an amazing man. For Rea, that man is Alex. Alex is the gentle soul. He is the calm one. I cannot imagine Rea without Alex. Or Alex without Rea. They compliment one another like woah. They are best friends. They communicate like crazy. For these reasons, they will make an amazing parenting team. Sophie is one lucky soul.
Rea and Alex: I love you both so very much and cannot wait to meet Sophie Leona! She will enrich your lives beyond belief. You will laugh, cry, scream, pray - and all of it will make your love and appreciation for one another deepen.
Sophie: I cannot wait to hold you in my arms! Aunt Nik Nik loves you to pieces! Get ready. xoxo
