So Close Yet So Far

"With all of the struggles and everything in between, I know we can overcome it all and prove anyone that ever doubted us, wrong."


40. ❥Closer and Closer

Sydneys POV

Week by week day by day goes by, my stomach is gradually getting bigger, and before I know it I am thirty seven weeks along. It blows my mind how fast the time has gone. Knowing my baby can actually come any day now is not just scary, it's terrifying.

Not knowing when or where it's going to happen is the worst part. I could go into labor at any given moment and as much as I am terrified of it boy am I ready. The bigger I get the heavier my stomach gets which I guess is a good thing. My latest doctor appointment went well, it was actually my very last one. Knowing that the next time I would be in a hospital would be to deliver my baby is surreal.

"She's such a big girl and she isn't even here yet," Niall said. One of his daily things now is to put on my stretch mark cream for me and talk to the baby at the same time. Don't get me wrong, it was indeed cute, but at times he would want to spend "1 on 1 time" with our baby that was still inside of me while my back was aching from standing up to long.

"Niall, I have got to lay down can we continue this in bed?" I groaned. He quickly nodded and scooped me up into his arms. I'm surprised he hasn't dropped me yet. I have gained far more weight than I ever thought I would, but I don't mind because as long as my baby is healthy I am happy.

"Sorry love I get so carried away. I just can't wait to for her to physically be here so I can spoil you two already." I laugh, "As if you haven't already done that enough!"

"Which reminds me..." Niall runs into our closet and walks out with a Victorias Secret bag. "Niall.. no. We have a baby coming and you have already bought plenty for me and her!" I decline the offer although I really want to know what he got me, but I know if I see it I will want to keep it.

"Baby, it's my money and I want to spend it on the two most important girls in my life. I will most definitely buy you things when you don't expect it, and you will most definitely agree to have them," He leans down and pecks my lips, "Got it?" He asks and raises an eyebrow.

"But her baby shower is tomor-"

"Oi, no buts!" Niall waves a finger at me.

I sit up in the bed and hold my hand out, "Fine, give me the damn bag." He hands it over and when I pull the paper out of it and see the one of the cutest swim suits I have ever seen in my life my self confidence level sky rockets.

It was surely evident that it did by the looks of my facial expression because just as I thought his smile couldn't get any bigger it did. "I take it you really like it?"

I happily nod and get up to look in the mirror. I know summer is just around the corner, hell it's already April, but I'm so excited to wear this swim suit I just might have to start planning a pool party early.

"It's absolutely perfect, love."

"If the top is a little to small we can even get it fitted to those perfect boobs of yours if you want," Niall groped them and I slapped his hand away.

"You pervert!" I giggled.

"Thank you, so much, for trying. I know this hasn't been easy for the both of us but I have no doubt in my mind that you're going to be the best daddy ever." He pulls me in between his legs and places a soft kiss on my lips.

"Hey, but you're still surprising me with things and the baby shower is tomorrow!" Niall rolls his eyes so hard you'd think they were going to fall out.

"Baby, relax. I've got everything under control there is not a thing you need to be worried about, ok?" I nodded and took a deep breath. I knew it stressed Niall out for me to be stressed, but it was just a pregnant woman thing. I couldn't help but be worried about this and that, but I do trust him and believe he's got this all under control.

He pulls me into him as close as he possibly can and smooths my hair back off of my forehead. "Just relax that's all I want you to do,"


"Sweetie, baby," Niall gently shakes my shoulder and I roll over and groan at the sun piercing my eyes causing me to squint. "Wake up love it's ten in the morning."

"TEN IN THE MORNING?" I jolt up and look at my phone. He's right it is ten and my baby shower starts in two hours. I glare at Niall as he slowly backs away, "Niall you knew that I should have been up well before ten! You're all dressed and ready to go why didn't you wake me?" This man frustrates me like no other. I sometimes wonder how his brain works he's just that carefree and clueless all the time.

"Sydney, you needed to sleep. You were tired, you know you were, and now look at you. You have that pregnancy glow that I absolutely love," He grins. I hate that he knows what to say at the right times knowing that I can't be mad at him after the fact.

I frown and get out of bed to look in the mirror, and he is right. My skin has a healthy sheen to it that's rarely ever there and it must be to the great nights sleep I had. For once the baby wasn't kicking or I wasn't tossing and turning and cussing Niall out for still being in the bed instead of on the couch.

"Not only that I finally had a good nights sleep as well. It felt refreshing to not have to sleep on the couch and wake up with back pains," He chuckles.

I gasp, "Baby! Why didn't you tell me? I'm sure we could have worked something else out," I walk over to him and press my lips to his neck lightly massaging his shoulders.

He hums in satisfaction, "Hmm don't worry about it I'm fine. Speaking of working things out you're distracting me from other things I need to get done before the baby shower starts, and you still need to get ready, love,"

I leave a trail of kisses up his neck and to his lips quickly placing one there then turn on my heel to go and get ready for my big day.

Just before I leave our room Niall falls back onto the bed and groans, "Ugh what are you doing to me woman..."


Thanks to Niall waking me up two hours before the event was supposed to start we were now five minutes late to our own party.

"Hey, don't look at me like that! I didn't know it was going to take you that long to curl your hair, get dressed, put on makeup, and eat breakfast,"

We finally pulled up to the land we rented for the day and thanks to Niall, Maura, and my dad everything turned out beautifully.

There was a gazebo that sat in the middle of the pond with pink balloons tied to it and all of the presents sat underneath. Along with many different tables scattered here and there with candy, drinks, snacks and food with the cutest baby shower decor.

Niall and I walked up to greet everyone and we were overwhelmed by all of the hugs, kisses, and congrats we got.

As the day went on it had finally come time for my favorite part; the games.

Niall picked up the mic and tapped it a couple times, "Mic check 1, 2," He grabbed everyone's full attention before continuing.

"Thank you everyone for showing up this afternoon. We are truly grateful by all off the support we've gotten from all of our friends and family and we can't thank you all enough. Now to hell with all of that sap talk how about we start playing some games!" Everyone cheered.

"The first game is called The Pacifier Pass! Separate into teams of four or five and stand in a line, facing the person in front of you. Each guest must put a straw in their mouth. The first person in line puts the pacifier on their straw. When the I say go everyone on the team passes the pacifier from straw to straw, no hands, no contact. Whichever team is the fastest wins!"

There were so many guests Niall and I decided to just let all of them play for prizes and eventually join into a game or two.


After playing multiple games and my cousins Bryce and Jenna winning majority of them we figured it would be necessary to start opening all of the gifts now.

Everyone made their way over to the gazebo, Niall and I leading the way, and we sat down in chairs that were labeled 'mummy and daddy to be'.

My good friend Lauren placed a crown on my head and from there we started opening tons and tons of gifts. From expensive to inexpensive our baby girl now had well over enough clothes to possibly last her the first two years of her life.

Harry bought her a baby Saint Laurent two piece hat and bootie set and I couldn't help but bust out laughing.

Poor harry couldn't stay away from YSL if he tried. Louis got her her first swim suit that was Burberry and and three piece Gucci bib set. I looked at him as if he were crazy as I did Harry.

Liam on the other hand had a better head on his shoulders and simply got her a Ralph Lauren Pom Pom knit hat which was adorable.

After sitting down for well over two and a half hours to open up every single gift the baby shower was coming to a close.

Everyone left the gazebo area and filed back up to the main area where the stage and food was. Niall and I walked onto the stage to say our final thank you's, "First off we want to thank our parents," I started. "We wouldn't have been able to come close to having an amazing baby shower like this if it weren't for you two."

"And to all of our friends and family thank you so much for flying out to see us! We got a lot of questions on what her name was going to be, and we still haven't decided yet, but she should be here any day now so stay tuned on Twitter and Facebook!"

I handed the mic over to Niall so he could finish off, "As Sydney said before, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you to all that helped put in work to make this happen for my two beautiful girls,"

I smiled and leaned into him, "Have a safe flight home most of you and if you drove drive safely we love you guys!"

And from there our baby shower with the capacity of about a little over a thousand people was a success. It couldn't have gone any other way. Now all that was left was for our baby girl to finally be here with us.
