"So what are you doing today?" asked Bailee, coming into the kitchen.
"Sean asked me to go to the movies." I said, finishing up my cereal.
"Are you going?" asked Bailee.
"I might as well, I don't have anything else to do." I said.
"I hope Sean doesn't think you're leading him on." said Bailee.
"He knows we're just friends. Besides in a few more months he'll be gone and we won't see each other anymore." I said, putting my bowl in the sink.
"Maybe that's how it is for you, but maybe that's not how he feels." said Bailee.
"Sean's not a problem, we're just friends and he knows that." I said.
"Have fun, and oh one more thing. My mom wants to go crib shopping later today."
"Already, I don't even know whether it's a boy or a girl." I said.
"My mom said we could paint the room a light greenish color. That's good for both a boy and a girl." said Bailee.
"I'm not sure how I feel about you guys spending money on me." I said, feeling weird about taking their money.
"You're not taking money from us, just think of it as an early baby shower present. Which reminds me, we should have one for you."
"Slow down, Bailee. I'm only five months. I think you're enjoying this pregnancy more than I am." I said, laughing.
"I'm just excited. It is my job as a godmother to make sure that you and the baby have the best of everything." she said.
"Who said you're going to be the godmother?" I asked, raising my eyebrows.
"Ha ha, very funny. Who else could be the godmother if it's not me?"
"Well, I did enjoy hanging out with Tess last night. Maybe she would like to be the godmother." I said.
I had to duck because Bailee threw a cook book at me.
"Hey, you can't throw stuff at me. I'm with child." I said, pointing at my stomach.
"That's only when you're really really pregnant. Until then I can do whatever I want to you." said Bailee.
"It already feels like I'm really really pregnant. I feel like I have a basketball in my stomach." I said.
"Don't worry, you're still kinda small. I know women who have gotten way bigger than you. So when do you think you'll be able to feel it kick?" asked Bailee.
"The doctor said it starts happen between 4 or 6 months." I said.
Bailee and her mom took me to my first doctor's visit last week. The day after my parents kicked me out.
"Ooh, it's going to be real soon then." said Bailee.
"Yeah, I'm kind of scared." I said.
"Why?" asked Bailee.
"Because the more it grows the more terrified I become. What if I can't make it through the labor or what if something goes wrong?"
"Nothings going to go wrong. You're worrying for nothing." said Bailee.
"What if I'm not a good mom? What if my baby grows up asking question about Luke? What if he or she wants to know who he is?"
"Look, you need to stop stressing, it's not good for the baby. You're going to be a great mom and yes he or she will ask about him and you'll know what to do when the time comes." she said.
"I hope so. Can you do me a favor?"
"Sure, anything for you."
"Would you come to my ultrasound tomorrow? I don't want to go alone." I said.
"Sure, I can't wait to see what it is."
"Yeah, me neither."
