“Your due date is almost here! Are you and Grayson ready?” Your mom asked. You’d been spending the day with her and you’d just sat down to lunch.
“I think I’m more ready than him,” you laughed, “mostly to get her out. But, I’m so ready to meet her and hold her and love her.”
“I’m excited to meet her too. How’s Grayson about all this?” She asked.
“He’s excited too. He’s been so excited ever since I told him I was pregnant. But I feel like I’m gonna be doing a lot of the late nights on my own. He’s such a heavy sleeper, and as soon as he’s out, he’s out.”
“You never know, people change once they become parents.” Your mom said with a smile. You finished your lunch, did a bit more shopping, and she dropped you back off at home at the end of the day.
“Hey hon, how was your day?” Grayson asked as you walked into the house.
“Good. Mom says hi.” You said with a smile, pressing a kiss to his lips. You sat in the living room and talked about your days, decided on dinner, and spent the rest of the evening hanging out together at home.
The last few months of your pregnancy flew by, and once your baby was born, and you had her back home, you and Grayson quickly adjusted to being parents. The first few weeks to having your baby home were rough, considering all the late nights and limited sleep you’ve been getting.
“Finally, she’s asleep.” You sighed as you set the baby monitor on your nightstand and rolled into bed next to Grayson. You lied there talking with him for a bit before you felt yourself fall asleep. A few hours later, you heard noise coming from the baby monitor and as you woke up, you noticed Grayson wasn’t in bed next to you.
“Grayson?” You called out as you got out of bed. You walked down to the nursery and found Grayson sitting in the rocking chair and holding her. You smiled to yourself as you noticed how tiny she looked in comparison to his arms.
“Hey hon. What are you doing up?” He asked.
“I heard your humming in the baby monitor.” You said, walking over to him as he turned his attention back to the baby.
“Yeah, I heard her sounding like she was waking up so I came to check on her. She was moving around a little bit, so I sat with her a little, trying to let you get some more sleep.” He explained.
“Here, let me take her so you can go back to bed.” You held out your arms to take her, but Grayson just shook his head.
“It’s okay, she’s almost back asleep. You go back to bed.” He said, smiling up at you. You pressed a kiss to his forehead and went back to your room and got comfortable in bed. A couple minutes later, you felt the bed move and Grayson wrap his arms around you. You smiled to yourself as you intertwined your fingers with his and drifted off to sleep.
