“She, may be the song that summer sings… May be the chill that autumn brings…”
She- Elvis Costello
It’s June, the 21st day of June. The day when summer begins one more time, the day when we should be prepare with boots, umbrellas and… A new baby.
We’re at the hospital, in a room full of nurses and a doctor just behind my wife’s legs. It’s kind of funny when I say that word… My wife. I like how it sounds.
“Come on, babe. Just push.” I told her with my hand over hers.
“Ah! Nicholas! This is fu***** painful!” She screamed.
“Come on, come on. Just a little bit more.” The doctor said.
“Ah!!” She shouted again. I kissed her on the lips passionately so she could forget the pain for a second.
“A little bit longer and you’ll be fine.” I whispered into her ear trying to comfort her.
“This is no time for you to … Ah!” She screamed again.
I must say I was frightened to death… My legs were shaking as hell. We’ve been waiting for this baby such a long time and we’ve been learning everything (well, at least everything that’s in books) about how to be parents, even when mom, dad, Kevin and Dani kept telling us that you CAN’T learn how to be a parent… She continued screaming and squeezing my hand, the nurses all over the room passing by every second, the doctor pressing her to push once again and I… I just stood up there remembering everything we went through… When we first met, I had no idea she would become so important to me, I had no idea she would become the mother of my child.
“She’s here.” The doctor said as we hear a cry. “It’s a girl.”
I could feel my heart beating so hard it was almost out of my chest. It’s a girl… My new baby girl.
The nurse wrapped her in a pink blanket and gave her to us. She was beautiful, with her eyes closed and her little hands holding the edge of the blanket.
“She’s so beautiful. Isn’t she?” I whispered carefully touching her face; her skin was soft and warm. She took my pinky with her little hand.
“She’s perfect… I think she knows who’s her daddy.” I smiled at her and kissed my wife softly on the lips.
“I need to take a picture of this.” I said taking my iPhone.
“Nick, I’m a mess.” Vanya said. She was all covered of sweat and tears but for me she was as perfect as always.
“You look beautiful” I took the picture and upload it to twitter at the following second, saying: The two most important girls in my world :’) I love you! “I must tell our family.” I said and ran out of the room.
I heard Alena’s voice in the distance… “Dad, will I be able to play with my new cousin?” I entered to the lobby and there they were… They stared at me for a few seconds.
“It’s a girl…” I said with relief. Everyone got a huge smile and just congratulated me. My entire family and Vanya’s friends hugged me.
“Uncle Nick, can we see her?” Alena asked me pulling of my pants.
“Of course” It took her up and guided everyone to the room. They got to my wife’s bed and welcomed our new baby. I just stared at my whole family together and felt the happiest I’ve ever been.
“That’s no fair, man!” Joe complained looking at his phone.
“What?” Vanya asked.
“Our fans meet her before us. You tweeted them a picture!”
“Nicholas!” My wife scolded me giving me a killing look.
“I’m sorry. I couldn’t help it…” I said smiling. Yes, smiling with teeth.
I didn’t like smiling because I used to be a little insecure about it but since I’ve known what real love is, all I could do was smile because I was happy. I AM HAPPY, and If you concentrate on the ONE thing in your life that makes you truly happy, everything else will fall into place.
