49. First night of motherhood
In the car, Stella was sound asleep. Louis was probably driving ten miles per hour on a highway. A lot of angry drivers passed by, raising their middle fingers high and mighty. I turn to look at Louis, "Louis, why are we driving so dang slow?" He looks at me real quick then looks back on the road, "I don't want to go too fast for Stella." I laugh and turn to look at our sleeping beauty, "Sweetie, she is asleep. We are in a sport car and we're going ten miles per hour on a highway! People are getting angry at us." He looks at me and smiles, "Fine. I'll speed up but if she wakes up and gets grumpy, it's your fault!" I laugh and shake my head. He speeds up to normal speed. When we get home, Louis opens my door for me and helps me out of the car. I walk over to the side of the car and open the door. Louis puts his hand in front of mine before I can start taking Stella out of the car, "No sweetie, I'll do it." He kisses me on the head and gets Stella out of the car in her carrier. He puts his one free hand around my waist and all three of us, as a family, walk in our house. We walk upstairs and take her out of her carrier. I hold her in my arms while Louis takes a picture on his phone. I watch him as he puts it on Twitter, "How do I look?" He looks up at me with a cute little smile, "Like a new mommy." I smile at him and put Stella in his arms. I walk down the hall to the bathroom. I look at my reflection in the mirror, I see a girl with a messy bun and no makeup on. She's wearing sweats and a hoodie. She looks like she hasn't showered in two days. Yep, that's me, a new mom who hasn't been home in two days. I hop in the shower and take a quick shower. When I get out, I walk in Stella's room to find Louis sitting on the floor playing with Stella's feet while she layer on the floor giggling. I smile while I lean against the doorframe. He has a sparkle in his eyes that I've never seen before. He looks back at me and smiles. I sit down by him and play with her feet as well. When it's bedtime, we both put her in a cute little pajama onesie. I rock her in the rocking chair while I breast feed her. When she falls asleep I lay her in her crib and turn her mobile on. I kiss her on the head and leave the room. I walk downstairs at sit on the couch with Louis and watch tv. I soon fall asleep on his chest.
