[Unedited]It's been a few months since the birth of our child and Laura-Jayne is getting bigger everyday. It was tough at first when she brought her home from the hospital with her constant crying, we couldn't get any sleep. Of course Newbie offered the take the night shift, but since he works in the morning he would be dead tired. No one wants a tired brain surgeon performing surgery.
Eventually we came up with a conclusion that would help us both. Newbie took his saved up vacation time to stay home for the first few months until we can come up with a better solution. We had enough money saved up to support us until he went back to work. Newbie took the night shift and I took the day and with that the first months went by with a breeze.
I spent the morning of the visits straighten up the house, making sure it was nice and clean for when they come by. It was pretty messy, but if your full attention is on the baby you pretty much forget about cleaning. When I finished cleaning I ran upstairs to check on Newbie and the baby. He was in charge of her while I cleaned.
I open the bedroom door and saw Newbie holding Laura-Jayne and rocking her back and forth. It was such an adorable sight to see my daughter sleeping in her daddy's arms.
"Sorry time got away from me. I'll get her dressed now. You go wait for my mom downstairs and I'll be down there in a few."
"Alright, but hurry cause I want her to look her best hen she meets her grandma."
"I'll make sure she's all dressed up."
Newbie handed Laura-Jayne over to me and opened the door for his mother and friends, and welcomes his mom with a big hug.
"Hey mom, I missed you."
"I missed you too my boy. We don't see each other nearly as enough as I like."
"Well your always welcome to visit."
"And same here my son."
Ashby walked over to me and gives me a half hug then takes Laura-Jayne into her arms. "So this is the granddaughter who's named after me. Looks like she got the Starr hair and your eyes Dawn," Ashby said looking over to me.
Laura-Jayne giggles at Ashby and starts touching her face, causing Ashby to laugh. "It seems she likes her grandma already. Haha."
"She's the cutest thing ever," Violet said, smiling.
"I just want to eat her all up," Christy added.
Violet and Christy said a few stories too but mostly just listened and asked questions as well. I sat back, rocking Laura-Jayne in my arms and an hour later after Ashby arrived little Laura-Jayne fell asleep in my arms.
"A little birdy told me that Quinn got engaged."
"Wait, but isn't he dating my cousin?" I asked looking up from the baby to Ashby.
"Well I guess he proposed," Ashby smiled.
"But he would have told me. I'm his brother."
"And I'm sure that Minny would have told her cousin or I would have heard it from my aunt and uncle, they know that Quinn and Newbie are brothers."
"She's the cutest little thing I ever saw, well besides mine and Logan's babies, but still she's so cute."
"Maybe. I want her to be around a lot of people when she's young so she wont grow to be shy. I want her to be able to make a lot of friends."
"Maybe you should take her to a park to see other little toddlers, or have a play date."
"Yeah that's a great idea."
"Newbie and I have been talking and decided on who should be Laura-Jayne's godparents. We would like you to be her godmother."
"So, will you?"
"Of course. So who's her godfather?"
"Quinn, Newbie's brother. We called him a few days ago. He said yes also."
"Thank you Addy."
I leaned over and gave my best friend a big hug and not long after that she left as well.
