Communicating feelings with Alex wasn't always easy.
Alex stood and walked down the hall.
"It doesn't matter," Alex said.
They even agreed to take care of the animals while Alex and Carmen took their first vacation.
Alex had provided the money to remodel the home, but insisted that it stay in her name only.
Alex said, glancing around.
Alex was doing everything in his power to provide her with all the experiences of a natural mother.
Alex set his cup down beside hers.
Alex was uneasy because he and his biological father had never seen eye to eye.
If Alex knew that, he gave no indication - and she had no intention of telling him.
No one could deny that Alex was a devoted husband and father.
Alex had destroyed it then with suspicion and accusations.
Alex walked into the room, smiling when he saw what she had done.
Carmen and Alex hosted Thanksgiving Dinner for all the family they had in Arkansas.
In a way, Carmen and Alex had adopted a family.
Alex had been the one who helped her see them as true family, and yet he was having issues accepting his own father.
That was a double-edged hurt, though, because Alex adored his adoptive father.
To be fair, his father hadn't made things any better by offering money to Alex and not his sister.
Like Alex, he saw the logic in surrogacy, as did Bill.
What did you really think when you found out Alex was a Mexican?
First of all, I married Alex because I love him.
Alex got a relief when the conversation turned to something else and stayed there for the rest of the evening.
Alex gently turned her around and took her into his arms.
They circled the room twice before a hand reached up and tapped Alex on the shoulder.
Alex chuckled and relinquished the remainder of the waltz to him.
Alex swung around, his eyes twinkling with humor and that cute dimple teasing his cheek.
Alex rolled over and faced her.
Thanks to Alex, that chore had been turned into a simple twist of a knob.
Alex had promised the foal to Jonathan and he had already named it Eureka.
Alex met her at the door, a steaming cup of coffee in one hand.
In business transactions Alex was frugal with his money, but when it came to his family, he was generous.
It was nice having Alex home all day and having the family together, but all good things come to an end.
One day they were sitting at the table working on coloring books when Alex came home early.
Alex stared at her, his expression sour.
Alex didn't know about her fear of flying and she'd just as soon he didn't learn.
On the other hand, Alex exuded confidence.
The day before they were scheduled to leave, Alex came home from work and asked to see the tickets.
Alex asked with a grin.
Alex was watching her, his expression unreadable.
Alex glanced at Jonathan and then rubbed the top of his head.
That night as they prepared for bed, she approached Alex about it.
Alex was supposed to be sterile, but they had been wrong about that.
Alex was romantic enough to understand the sentimental significance of the home she had inherited.
Did Alex think of her that way?
Of course, Alex didn't have any gray hair yet, and his lips were fuller - more defined.
Alex said from the doorway.
