Reunited At Last

LUKE COMES HOME TODAY!!! I was never so excited. It has been the hardest three weeks of my life. At least before I was on bed rest I had things to do to keep my mind off Luke not being here. I'm facing the biggest challenge of my life though; I could wait until the baby's are healthier or hope they come this week when Luke is here.
Sitting on the couch in sweatpants, wrapped in a fuzzy blanket, I eat lunch and watch tv. If you can't tell the tv has been my life for the past few weeks. I don't even enjoy tv, all the shows are the same and really stupid in my opinion. I just want to be off bed rest.
My phone goes off and I see it is Lucas! "Hey" I sound very eager because I am. I finally get to touch him instead of the computer screen. I finally get to kiss him. "Guess where I am?" He sings. "I don't know" I say as the doorbell rings. My heart starts to race and I run to him.
When I throw the door open I see the mailman, handing me today's mail and I nearly cry. I don't think I was ever so excited and the stupid mailman ruined it all. "I thought that was you at the door. Where are you though?!" I ask sitting back down on the couch.
"In the car on my way home. I'm off to see my lover my wonderful lover in life" he sings, cracking me up. "I can't wait to see you. I have missed you so much." I smile at myself. "No I mean Julia. Oh didn't I tell you about her?" He laughs. "I hate you" I giggle as well.
"I love you too. Everyone wants to say hello" he says. "HELLO" they all yell. "Hey. Can't wait to see you all. It's been weird without you here." "Same. It was annoying Luke just talked on and on and on about you. We couldn't take it anymore which is why we took a week off the tour" Calum is his usual joking self.
"How are you feeling sis?" Ash questions. "Good. I'm sick of the couch and bed and anything I have to sit in for a long time. I've been trying to sleep my days away until they arrive" I tell him. "Well make it fast because I want to see them already damn it!" Michael shouts. Michael is just a very, very loud person in general, always screaming type of person.
We continue to talk and than Luke needs to call his parents. After about an hour after we end our phone conversation I call his parents as well. "Hello?" His dad questions. "Andrew? Hey it's Ali I was wondering if your family would like to come over we are having a big get together for all the boys?"
"Oh hey Ali. Yeah I think that would be great. Liz and I are so excited to finally get to see him. It has been so long. About seven months I guess" "yeah it was definitely a challenge" I chuckle. I soon hang up and call the other families and they all agree to come over.
My family starts decorating and I help. Mum allows me to get off bed rest schedule on occasions and it is great when I can. We hang the welcome sign in the living room and put the food and drinks out. My feet start to swell and hurt so I sit down. All this extra weight is really starting to get hard to manage. They will shortly be here though and I'm excited for that!
Families start to arrive and we all talk. Liz and I sit down and talk about the babies and pregnancy a lot. She comes over to visit every now and again but we have all been so busy. "Mali!" I say and she bends down to hug me. When I got home from the tour we hung out a lot but then she went over to England for a while so we obviously stopped hanging out.
We see the car pull up and it takes everything I have to not run out there and kiss Luke's face all over. I see my brother as well and gosh are I missed them. They get all their many bags out and wheel them to the front door. At this point I can't hold back and I walk to the door as Ashton opens the door I push him aside and go straight to Luke, kissing him passionately.
"I've missed you so much" he hugs me. Everyone makes their way to their families as I start to cry. "I love you so much Luke" I place my hand on his chest and rest my head on his shoulder. "Look at you. These girls should come any day now by the looks of it" he puts a hand on my huge belly. We make our way to everyone else and I go to my brother as Luke wonders over to his parents and brothers.
"I've missed you so much Ashton" I cry on his shoulder now. He hugs me tight and goes to Harry and Lauren. I soon have to sit down again and Luke comes over and sits by me. "You have no idea how happy I am to finally be home with you." He smiles and kisses me again. Our lips move in sync and we pull away.
It feels like I'm falling in love all over. Like that day they came home from last tour when we had breakfast and played lazertag, spraining my ankle. Wow that was nine months ago now. Now I'm seven months pregnant with our baby girls! I'm so excited!

This is so amazing having all our families here. I love homecoming reunions; one of my favorite things ever, with my favorite people on this planet. Next time there will be two more little faces here though!! Ali is getting really big and it doesn't look like it will be to much longer. If they are going to come early I home it is this week. With my luck it will be next week....
Ali and Ashton's mum gets everyone dinner and we gather around and eat. "You need to see all the baby stuff in my room" I'm told. Ali pulls me up and takes me to her room. If only her pulling me to her room was always the home welcoming gift, and I don't mean to check out baby clothes or anything.
She throws the door open and the room is packed with baby clothes being sorted on her bed and cribs and changing tables, toys, and yet more clothing. Then you find all of her stuff and the room is just filled to the top. I can't believe how much stuff there is. Well we are ready for these girls at any time...
