Remembering Sweet Baby Lexi

12/2/2007 - 10/5/2021

We said goodbye to our sweet, silly Lexi Lou today.

Just like I did with Zoe, what I really want to do here is just create a space to post favorite photos and fond memories of her that I never want to forget. A place I can return to when I'm thinking about and missing her.  Again, I suspect this post will be fluid, with me returning to add things periodically.

For now, I just want to share a few photos of Lexi that never made it to the blog.  Again, these were taken at the same time as the ones I posted of Zoe.

Lexi, in our yard back in Indiana 10/23/2010:
Lexi, Rest in Peace, sweet baby girl. I am so thankful for the almost fourteen years I got to share with you, but it still wasn’t anywhere near long enough. A piece of my heart will always belong to you, my sweet girl. Your mama loves you, now and forever. I have no words for just how how much you will missed, Sweet Lexi Lou.

I can’t believe that both of my girls are gone. I didn’t realize just how much Lexi’s presence was somehow keeping Zoe here for me, too. Losing her feels crushing because it was the last link I had to the life I shared with them. Zoe made me a Dog Mama after waiting years for the right time to adopt one, and Lexi was the missing piece to complete our little family.

The two of them shared such a special bond. They spent almost their entire lives together: Lexi came home on 2/8/08 and we lost Zoe on 3/5/21 - more than 13 years as sisters! It was just the two of them for almost 10 years. Watching them grow up together and spend their lives side by side was so special. Wherever they are, I hope they are having a ton of fun and raising a little hell together again! Your Mama loves you and misses you, baby girls!
