15. Baby's Birthday
It was Grace's birthday today, so Emilia woke up early along with her parents to put out the gifts from them and the gifts from Josh's family down in the lounge. Unsurprisingly, Josh never sent a gift but a card with $50 in it so she can buy something but his mom, dad and Alessia all bought gifts. Grace woke up at 9am and got pretty excited when she saw her presents lay on the Sofa's.
"Do you like all your gifts?" Emilia asked her after all the presents were open. Grace nodded and laughed before crawling over to her mom for grandma and Gracie cuddles as they called it. After a special birthday breakfast, Emilia got dressed in a white crop top, black skater skirt, black converse and a black blazer with her hair in a fishtail braid and her makeup fully dome with her !AC red lipstick the statement. "What times the party booked for?" Emilia asked when she was finished beautifying herself. "It's at 1 o'clock at the soft play centre in town." Alessandra said. "Great, I just had to tell Chelsey what time her and Mya can be there for?" Emilia said, getting out her iPhone and texting Chelsey to remind her.
They arrived at the soft play area where Chelsey and Mya, Alessia and Josh's parents, some of Emilia's family, Riley, Charlie amd some of Grace's friends from the daycare she started and there parents were all stood waiting around a pink table decorated with princess themed items. Emilia put down Grace's princess castle cake and went to say hello to everyone whilst Grace and her buddies crawled of up to the play area.
"Well Em, your baby's growing up! One years old already!" Charlie said, hugging Emilia who he hasn't seen since she left for Minnesota. "I know, I'm feeling so old yet I'm turning 17!" Emilia said laughing. "Oh Mil, we've missed you loads!" Riley said. "So how's Josh?" She asked Alessia out of the blue. "How do you think? He's completely fine, going out getting pissed every night, getting high with Gabe and moms listed about 4 girls coming back home with him. I wouldn't worry if I were you." Alessia said. "I'm not worrying, he just called saying he'd be in North Dakota and he wanted to see Gracie." Emilia explained. "Mil, you shouldn't let him see her yet. He will introduce Grace to this new girl he's with and the week after she'll be gone and It'll just confuse her." Alessia said. "I said he couldn't see her, not yet. I want to know she'll be safe so I want your parents there so if he goes of and leaves her she will actually have someone looking after her!" Emilia said. "Enough about that douche, lets party!" Charlie joked. "I'll take you up on that!" Emilia said, going to sit at the table with the guests.
