21. Baby Shower ; Emma's POV

I was almost at 7 months and my stomach was HUGE. I didn't know if the babies were going to grow anymore or not. But I was ready to get my baby shower done and over with. Five Seconds of Summer announced their tour would be continued in the middle of July, so they could be here with me in the last trimester of my pregnancy. Julie had the weekend home, which works out well because today I was having my baby shower. The theme was going to be baby animals, trying to keep it neutral since we're having one of each. It was going to be hosted at Ashton's mum's home, because she was a big help in planning the event. Everyone attending the church she goes to, my friends and family, Ashton's family, Julie, Mrs. Irwin, Logan, Michael, Luke, Calum, and Ashton were invited. We were not sure who would be here, and who wouldn't be. Either way, it was going to be a wonderful day. Julie and I stayed the night with Mrs. Irwin at her house, to get everything ready. We hung banners, made appetizers, grabbed the plates and silverware, placed balloons around, and tidied up around her house a bit. It was around 12:30, and people weren't expecting to be showing up 'til 1. We sat on the couch, silent and still. A few seconds after sitting still in the quietness, Julie spoke up.
"So, this is it. I guess. In less than 3 months you'll be a married mum, ha. Crazy isn't it? Just yesterday you were my little girl, Em. You'd have your dolls, the clothes, bottles, beds, and so much more for them. You'd go into your playhouse, and that was you and your babies' home. You'd drive in your little electric vehicle, pretending that was your car. Making foods out of play-dough for friends and visitors. You are growing up so fast, Emma. I mean.. Are you sure you are ready for this? Marriage isn't a game, and neither is being a mum. I mean, there are responsibilities, consequences, things to do, things to worry for, I mean, Ashton and you? You guys are going to be not only looking out for each other, but also Josh and Isabella."

It got quiet again, then we heard the door open. Ashton, Michael, Calum, and Luke walked in. They all had 2 gifts each, some bagged, some wrapped, some small, and some big.

"Sit your things on the table if you want too, guys. There are snacks in the kitchen." Ashton's mum says. The boys sat their gifts onto the table, and went toward the kitchen, besides Ashton. Ashton walked over to me.

"Hey darling." He said, flashing me his beautiful smile like always.

"Hi." I said, smiling right back.

We talked for a bit, talking about how our babies will be here soon, and how crazy it's going to be. Soon enough, more people showed up. About 100 or more people attended, but I didn't see Logan. I texted her, but no reply. I ignored it, and had fun at the baby shower. Ashton and I got lots of diapers and wipes, lotions, clothes, shoes, socks, and toys for our babies. When it was time to open the gifts from Calum, Luke, and Michael, they sat around me, holding their gifts.

"Here Emma." Luke said, handing me his gifts. There were two wrapped boxes, one wrapped with pink paper saying Isabella, and the other one being wrapped up with blue saying Josh. I opened Josh's, and Ashton opened Isabella's. There were two bears, one blue and the other pink, and had shirts that said their names on it.  Then came Calum's gifts, which he got them little 5SOS outfits, including pajamas, onesies, shirts, hoodies. Michael's gift were onesies with the name of bands on them, and blankets.

We played games, ate food,cake and cupcakes, mingled, just had a really great time. Around 4:30, everyone started to leave. The boys, Julie, and Ashton's mum were still here. We helped clean up, packed up the gifts, and said bye to Mrs. Irwin. Julie, Ashton, Luke and I drove together in my van with the gifts, Calum and Michael going to go see Logan. We got back to the house, and took the gifts to Ashton and I's home.
"Wow Em, you really got the house finished." Luke said.

"Yeah, well I did have some help, haha." I said.

We gave Luke a tour of our home, and I came up with an idea.

"Hey, how about tonight we order some pizza, go get some snacks and stuff, and you, Calum, Michael, and us can hang out here? We can watch some movies, play games, just hang out."

"I think that sounds rad. Lemme text Cal and Mike and see what they think." Luke said.

Ashton gave me a look. "Wow Emma." he said angrily.

"What? Did I do something wrong?" I said, confused on why he'd be upset.

"Oh, I dunno. Inviting guys over? That's cool." He said fiercely.

"But they're your friends too, you guys are in a band together. Why is this wrong? We're just friends."
