I smiled, as I watched Ashton run around the backyard with the girls. I just miss this so much. Watching him get along with them. Spend actual time with his daughter. Ashton looked into the window, and smiled widely, and waved him hand for me to come out. I smiled, and ran outside.
"Get mummy!" He yelled. Jackie and Nicole came running to me, and I ran. "Get her!" Ashton yelled. I slowed down, and got tackled. Jackie laid on me, and Nicole was over my head. "Dad! Your turn!" Jackie yelled. Ashton laughed, and started to run. "Get him!" I yelled, running with Nicole in my arms.
We got so close to getting him, but Jackie fell. I was still running though. "Get him Nic." I said, stretching my arms out. She giggled, and taped his shoulder. "Lo!" Nicole yelled. Nicole calls Lauren, Lo, since she can't really pronounce Lauren. "I'm it!" She yelled, running. Nicole ran out of my arms, and over to Lauren. Then, she ran out of the fence.
"Nicole!" I yelled, running after her. She was no where to be seen. I looked at Calum and Kyla's house, seeing a little body walk inside. I ran to the door, and opened it. "Momma!" Nicole yelled. "She just, like came over here. I didn't want to send her home." Calum said. I shook my head. "Thank you." I said, out of breath. "Come here baby." I said, opening my arms. Nicole came running into my arms, and rested her head on my shoulder.
"So, I know you're not happy about Kyla and the baby." Calum said, as I sat down on the couch. "No, no. I'm really happy for you." I replied. "Alright, well... I was wondering... if it's a girl... we wanted to name it Ashley Marie." He said. I smiled. "Really?" I asked. He nodded. "We both agreed on the name." He said. "I love the name." I said. He smiled. "Good, and if it's a boy... Well I was thinking... Kyle James." He said. I nodded. "Good names." I replied. He nodded.
"If mines a girl, I'm thinking... Bryn Alexandra. And if it's a boy... Bryton Joseph." I said. "Wait, what?" He asked. I nodded. "Really?" He asked. I nodded. "Wow. Congrats." He said, hugging me. "Thanks. I found out this morning." I said. "Does Ashton know?" He asked. "No, I'm telling him tonight, hopefully. Everyone is going to be there. At the house." I replied. He nodded. "I'll be there early." He said. I nodded.
"Alright everyone, you're all here for a reason." Ashley said, standing up. I looked at everyone confused. "So, I have some news." She said, taking a sip of her drink. I saw Calum smiling at her. "Well... Two kinds of news. I have certain orders from Calum and Kyla." She said. "Kyla is pregnant with her first kid." She said. Everyone clapped. "Now for my news." She said. "So, many of you may know Ashton and I have been trying for another baby." She said. Oh god. She's going to say she can't have another kid. I know it.
"Well... This morning, I went to the doctors for a check up, and I found out... I'm pregnant." She said. I stood up, and hugged her. "I'm so happy." I whispered. She smiled. "That's your birthday gift." She said. I laughed, and kissed her. "How long have you been pregnant!" Michael yelled. She laughed. "A full two days!" She yelled back. He laughed, as well as me. I'm super happy. Let's not lose this one. I'm staying for a while here, and I will be there when this baby is born, and growing up.
