Generation 1, Chapter 2: Let's Talk About Babies

My dreams were consumed by nothing but diapers, toys, baby cribs, and morning sickness. Ever since Newbie and I agreed about having kids once we're married, my dreams were filled with everything baby. I can already see it now Newbie and I carrying our little baby home from the hospital, and Newbie smiling down at the little girl in his arms and...
"Dawn." My dream vanished in an instant as I heard Newbie whisper my name. I slowly open my eyes to see my fiance standing over me with a grin as bright as the sun.
 "Time to get up sleepy head. Our meeting with the real estate agent is in a couple hours."
I Lazily lift myself from my bed and stand beside Newbie. Yawning once, and rubbing my sleep filled eyes, I said, "Is the meeting today? I had completely forgotten."
Newbie chuckles and gently strokes my cheeks. "Yes, now get ready. I'll wait for you downstairs."
"Ha-ha. Alright." I smile and walk over to my dresser to get ready and Newbie left my room.
 In just a few hours Newbie and I are getting a tour of the house. He talks with the real estate agent about prices and I walk a little off to check a few of the rooms once more. The house was even more beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside, which makes me want it even more. It was a little dark, but with a few more lights and lighter paint for the walls the place will bright right up.
 "Dawn?" Newbie calls from where he stood. I spun around quickly, I have not been paying attention so I was surprised when I suddenly heard Newbie call my name. I swiftly walk over to them with a smile on my face. I look at Newbie and ask, "So, do you like it?"
 Looking to the agent who stood silently and patiently waiting for an answer, he smiles. "When can we move in?"
"REALLY?! Oh Newbie this house will be perfect to start a family in."
I wrap my arms tightly around Newbie and the woman smiles at the happy couple before her. "You can move in at anytime."
It had been two weeks since we moved into our new home. Newbie and I had the entire house repainted on the inside to brighten up the place and had replaced all the carpets with hard wooden floors. We also added a few extra and more brighter lights to each room since the lighting before wasn't that great. Now we're settling in our comfy little home.
I once again found myself on the computer looking for possible a venue for the wedding, I've gone through and checked out tons of them but haven't found the right one, the one that will make the wedding perfect. I got on the computer hoping to check a few more out before my brothers arrived for the sorta engagement party. Not everyone could make it around the same time for the party, so a while ago Newbie and I decided that we would see both of our families at different times; that way we would have included everyone in the celebration of our engagement.
I was only on the computer for ten minutes before Newbie walked into the kitchen and leaned on the door frame. "Your brothers are here, sweetheart."
My head shoots up from the computer to Newbie. I quickly turn it off before running out of the room and to the front door, leaving Newbie in the kitchen alone.
I stepped outside just in time to see my family get out of their cars and walk up to the house. Dean was the first to see me and stopped to wave. "Hey Dawn! We're here," He yelled.
Dean looked really happy to see me after so long. We haven't seen each other since Sabrina and Doug's wedding a year ago. We have only talked on the phone since he lived in Sunset Valley.
Right behind Dean and Karen was Doug walking Sabrina to the house. Doug and Sabrina had hitched a ride with Dean since they too lived in Sunset Valley, and sharing a car would save gas and money.
And just to the left of them was Blake with his arms wrapped tightly around his wife's shoulder. Blake and Valentina had left their earlier then Dean or Doug or anyone since they lived in Twinbrook; it was much farther away from Hidden Springs then Sunset Valley was.
Everyone was here and ready to start the mini party for mine and Newbie's engagement; I couldn't be more happier to have my brothers here to celebrate it with.
The first hour of the party was non stop ramble about the wedding and our plans and if we set a date yet. But of course our family has a tendency to unable to talk about only one topic, so we ending up talking about babies and Sabrina's pregnancy was mixed in with the conversation shortly after. Sabrina is six almost seven months pregnant. Everyone was excited when Doug and Sabrina made announcement that she was pregnant 4 months ago. This will Doug's and Sabrina's first child, and they both seemed very excited to start the family they always wanted.
While the girls started talking about a possible baby shower for Sabrina my brothers and I went into the kitchen for some coffee and small talk of our own.
"So I went to the jeweler a few days ago and found the perfect ring. It's two carats and I had 'I love you' engraved inside the band."
"Dean you sure you wanna spent that much money on an engagement ring, what if Karen says no?"
I turned my head quickly and glared at Doug. "DOUG! Don't say that. We wanna support Dean and congratulate him, not give him doubts about proposing."
Doug shrugged and Blake chuckled at him. I looked at Dean and said, "I know you two will be very happy together, Dean."
Dean smiled. "Thank you, Dawn. I planned on a romantic dinner for two at the Bistro back in Sunset Valley, then we'll go for a walk on the beach and I plan on proposing at the same place we first met a few years ago."
"Awe, that's so sweet."
After our conversation about Dean's plans of proposing to Karen, Newbie came walking into the kitchen. He walks right up to me- wrapping his arms around my waist and giving me a kiss on the cheek.
"So you were gonna leave me in a room full of girls while you talk with your brothers? That's not how it works sweety."
"Awe. I'm sorry honey. You wanna hang with the guys, and I'll go hang with the girls? Will that be better?"
"A little."
I giggle and then I hear Blake do a small we're-still-here cough and my attention snaps back to my brothers.
"Well I better go. What kind of a hostess will I be to my guests if I just leave them sitting in the family room."
I unwrap Newbie's arms from my waist and give him one last kiss before walking back to the girls.
I stepped into the other room only to find that Valentina sat alone on the sofa. I walk around and took a seat beside her. "Why are you alone? Where did Sabrina and Karen go?"
"Oh Karen wanted to give Sabrina something she had in the car. They'll be right back."
"And you didn't go with?"
She narrowed her eyes. "Well it was for Sabrina's baby."
She looked upset or unhappy or something when she mentioned Sabrina's baby. In fact she wasn't at all part of the conversation when we all were talking about babies earlier. It made me assume that the word baby upsets her and I was curious to why. "Does baby things upset you?"
She quickly looked away, obviously not wanting to make any eye contact with me. "Valentina, is there something wrong?"
She shook her head as if she was gonna say no, but then changed her mind. She then leaned forward and softly whispered. "I'm pregnant and I haven't told Blake yet."
My eyes widen and I nearly jumped up to go run and congratulate Blake, but I stopped myself before I did. The fact that Blake doesn't know about the pregnancy prevented me from getting up and ruining Valentina's chance to tell her husband the news. But when I looked at Valentina she didn't seem at all thrilled about the whole thing. I had a feeling she was worried about how Blake will react to the news.
"Valentina you have to tell Blake. I know your probably worried that he wont be thrilled about the whole thing, but I know he will. We grew up in a family that loved kids, he babysat all the time in high school, he's a great uncle to all his nieces and nephews, and he joined a challenge or two himself and was a great father to them. You don't have worry, I know my brother."
"Oh, maybe your right. I don't know why I was so worried about telling him I was pregnant. Thank--"
"What?" Valentina's sentence was cut short as Blake's voice suddenly spoke from across the room.
Valentina jumped up from the sofa so fast I swear I felt a gust a wind hit me. She quickly spun around with her hand covering her mouth. "Oh my gosh, Blake!" All she could do was look in horror at Blake's shocked expression and wait for some kind of response. 
"Your pregnant Valentina?"
"Y-y-yes," she stuttered.
What came next came as a complete surprise to Valentina. Blake smiled. 
He nearly knocked over my side table as he ran to Valentina- lifting her high in the air and spinning her in circles.
"This is great news, why didn't you tell me sooner?"
Before she could respond Blake gently place her back on the ground and pulled her in for a kiss.
"I have to tell the others." Blake ran out of the room and into the kitchen yelling on the way, "I have some big news guys."
I busted into laughter at Valentina's expression. She looked hopelessly lost and confused and some what shocked at what just happened a few seconds ago. She would have never guessed that this would be the reaction she would get from her husband hearing that he's gonna be a daddy, but of course I knew. I knew all along.
A few hours later everyone was gone and again it was just me and Newbie. Cuddled up on the sofa- we were both exhausted from the night's events. All I wanted to do was go right to bed and fall asleep.
"So what do you have in store for tomorrow?" Newbie asked in between yawns.
"I'm going to Calista's place."
"Calista's place?"
"Yep, little Opal is all grown up now and I'm gonna take her home."
