53. Hey There Delilah

Dylan's P.O.V

Delilah screams waking me up. I roughly pulled off the blankets and marched to her room. I'm so sick and tired of this, and the kicker is, this is my first night home with her! I don't know how people can do this for years...

The only thing that bothers me is that Harry barely even moves when she cries. I doubt he can even hear her!

I walk into her room and pick her up lightly. I bounced her up and down in my arms cradling her. "Shhh, what's wrong baby?" I smell her bum and yep..its the diaper. I cringed at the smell then I realized something. I've never changed a nappy before! I couldn't with the twins because I was to young, then I just didn't want to at all...

Delilah still continued her cries. Time to get Mr. SoonToBeGrumpy up. I walked into our room still with Delilah in my arms. I punched Harry in the arm because I wanted him to get up...now! He stirred but still continued to sleep.

Delilah let out a laugh at me punching him. I giggled with her, but I don't know why that made her laugh. I punched him again, but even harder. He was facing me so I could see his eyes shoot open.

"Ouch! What was that for?" He groaned and rubbed his eyes.

"I need your help, darling." I said in a weird voice that earned me a look saying,

'really? I'm not in the mood at three in the morning for this shit'

He rolled over, "Harry..." I said stretching out his name.

"What?" He asked, then yawned. "Have you ever changed a nappy before?" I asked, he sat up.

"Yeah, why you haven't?" He asked jokingly. My face showed no amusement to his joke.

"Nope." I said popping the P.

"You're kidding right?" I shook my head.

"I'm dead serious." Delilah started to get fussy so I took her pacifier from my pocket and put it in her mouth.

"But you have two little sisters!"

"Yeah, and you have one older one!" I said in his same tone. He rolled his eyes.

"Give me her..." He mumbled and stretched out his arms. I happily handed Delilah over. He snuggled her to his chest and got up. He walked out of the room and I followed.

Harry walked into Delilah's room and sat her down on the changing table. "Okay watch very closely.." He looked down at me and I nodded.

"First, you take off the lower clothed area, such as the pants."

He took off Delilah's polka dotted shorts. "Then, if you have a situation like this with the buttons, you unsnap them." He unsnapped the buttons to her onesie and rolled it up to her stomach.

"Then, when you see these little flap like things you pull them and they come off the diaper." He did what he explained.

"Then, you pull down the front of the nappy and take these wonderful smelling wipes and wipe her bum with them. They will clear the area..." He held her tiny ankles with one hand and lifted them up to her head to wipe her bum with the wipes. At this point the revolting smell mixed with the smell of soap.

"Usually people put the wipes in the diaper then fold it up and throw it away." He folded it up and threw it in the garbage bin.

"Ok, so now we grab a nappy from the bin over here..." He walks over to a bin in the corner of the room and grabs a new and folded diaper.

"Now, we lift her legs up like this." He lifts her legs up once again with his hands around her ankles.

"Then, we pull the nappy apart and put her legs down." He put her legs down and reached for a white bottle.

"Now, we put baby powder around her legs for irritation...well I think that's what it's for..." He put the baby powder in his hands and rubbed it around her legs where the nappy would be rubbing against her legs.

"Then, you pull these strap like things and put them on the front and they should stick to that." I nodded while he did that.

"Now, button back up the onesie...and pull on the pants...done! You have a sweet smelling and clean baby!" He smiled at me and lifted Delilah up.

"Thank you for the tutorial." I said sarcastically.

"Hey, if I have to get up at three in the morning for it, it's worth it!" I giggled.

"Now you practice with this doll, and I'll put Delilah to sleep." He handed me a doll, and he walked over to the rocking chair in the corner of the room. I put the doll down on the changing table and practice. But my practice was interrupted with the sound of singing.

 

"Hey there Delilah what's it like in New York City

I'm a thousand miles away

But girl tonight you look so pretty, yes you do .

Times Square can't shine as bright as you, I swear it's true

Hey there Delilah don't you worry about the distance

I'm right there if you get lonely give this song another listen

Close your eyes, listen to my voice it's my disguise

I'm by your side

Oh it's what you do to me .

Oh it's what you do to me .

Oh it's what you do to me .

Oh it's what you do to me .

What you do to me..."

 

The singing stopped and I looked over at Harry and Delilah in the corner. She was fast asleep.

"How did you do that?" I asked in a whisper.

"It takes me about an hour to get her to sleep!"

He chuckled. "It's easy, you just have to sing 'Hey There Delilah' and she'll fall asleep. Easy as that!"

I rolled my eyes, "like I knew I had to!" I snapped. He chuckled and put Delilah in her crib. I put a tiny bear next to her and walked out of the room with Harry following me.

I went straight to the bed and crawled under the covers. Harry did the same as me.

"Goodnight." I mumbled.

"Night," he kissed my hair and we both went to sleep.
