Hello!! I’m Alexis, the founder of Bless Our Littles!
I’m a momma to two little girls and wife to my handsome husband. I started this blog in 2018, out of my desire to be a mom. My husband was in the military, at the time, but we knew we wanted a family some day.
Maybe we were naive, but we assumed that getting pregnant would happen fairly quickly. To our surprise, 7 months into TTC and we finally got our positive pregnancy test.
This is where God comes in….
Each month that passed, caused us to question and wonder when –or even if– we would become parents. This journey to parenthood lead us to a deeper trust in God’s plan for our life.
I believe that He uses every season of our life for good, even if it’s hard to see in the midst of struggle
So why did we start the blog?
About 6 years ago, several of our friends found out they were pregnant. So many of the gifts I loved were either sold out or just hadn’t been created yet! After I made a swaddle blanket with a Bible Verse on it, I decided to start selling them.
I have to be completely honest…… We had intentions of getting pregnant fast. Starting this blog was a way to document our journey and share how to enjoy the season of parenthood. But God decided He had better plans…
Our Family Has Grown…
It’s amazing to see how our life has unfolded. A little over six years later we now have two beautiful little girls that are two years apart.
To our surprise, a few days after our youngest daughter was born, we found out she was diagnosed with a rare congenital heart defect called Ebsteins Anomaly. Truthfully, I never imagined I would be a CHD momma… but God has used this to bring so much good and glory to His name. (You can read her story here)
Where We Are Now!
2022 rocked my world and turned it upside down with the diagnosis of my daughter’s heart. I felt lost, alone, overwhelmed, overstimulated, and angry. Not to mention, I struggled with postpartum rage… which really made me believe I would never find healing.
After some behavioral issues with my daughter, I decided to look into Parent Coaching. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have signed up for Parenting School.
This 7 month journey gave me the JOY back in my motherhood. I was no longer anxious.. my postpartum rage was almost nonexistent…. but most of all, I learned how to show up with love, empathy, and compassion for my kids.
Now, I am sharing my journey of healing with parents…. in hopes of helping them find peace in their home.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I hope you enjoy this little space ❤️
