*A/N: the one on the left is Jess's and the one on the right is Madi's
-7 years later; august 2nd-
I take a deep breath to then let it out as I look at myself in the mirror.
"Mommy you look so pretty!" Addison says, hugging my leg. I smile, leaning down and picking her up. I kiss her cheek with a smile.
"Do you think Mom is going to be even more pretty?" I ask her, fixing her little flower crown. She nods with a huge smile. "Yeah, she's got your little brother in her tummy, right?" I ask and she nods again. She's so excited to meet her little brother. I move my blonde curled hair to one side and I fix my veil. Jess and I waited seven years to actually get married just in case something went wrong. We were going to get married two years after getting engaged but when we thought we had lost the baby, I really didn't. We had thought that when we had Addison, she didn't successfully attach to the wall of my uterus. I had severe cramps and I had blood so we went to the doctor and they said that we were definitely having a baby and that it was in fact my period that I got. So we delayed the wedding until we had her. Then the paps had gotten big on us three since my dad's band got back together for a returning tour. I was stuck in the house with Addie half of the time because I was too scared to go anywhere with her. That was when everyone first found out about the tour and then my dad asked if we wanted to go with them. I gladly took the offer because it would at least be safer than trying to commute through the city alone. And during all of this time, Jess was a surrogate for Alex and Jeremy who had gotten engaged a month after Addison was born in September. She'll be 5 on September 5. Her cousin Lilly just turned 3. Now we're finally having our wedding even though Jess is pregnant with our second, she said she didn't mind, she just wanted to be married already. Addie is our flower girl and she's the cutest thing in her dress. She loves it. I get a knock on the door. I look at Lane with wide eyes.
"I hope it isn't Jess. Let's hope it's your father." She laughs. She cracks open the door, poking her head out. Then she opens the door to reveal my dad all dressed up. I turn completely to face him and he tears up immediately.
"My little girl is growing up." He mumbles, covering his mouth as tears start to make their way down his cheeks. I walk over, hugging him tightly. "You look so beautiful. I bet Michael would have thought the same thing." He says sniffing and then letting me go. He kisses my forehead and takes my hands. "I'm so happy you found the love of your life. I've already went to visit her and she's beautiful and my grandson is looking handsome in there." He chuckles.
"Grandpa! Is Mom just as pretty as Mommy?!" Addison smiles brightly with her bright green eyes. My dad picks her up, carrying her on his hip.
"Yes she is." He smiles. I smile back.
"Hey, Addie. Do you want to go see mom before we have to go walk down the isle?" I ask her. She nods with a smile. "You know where she is, right?" I ask. She nods again and my dad sets her down and she's out the door.
"I love how she has your bright green eyes. She looks like you when you were her age." He smiles. I nod with a smile.
Both of our dads walked us down the isle at the same time. We had hooked arms and our dads were on the other side of us. When she first saw me and I first saw her, we were both crying at how beautiful we were to each other. She told me that I had a great mom body and I told her that she looked great pregnant. After the ceremony we went out to the reception and just had some fun. Addison had lots of fun with Lilly and her uncles. Now we're back at home, Addison in her room that used to be mine. Jess and I are sitting on the couch, my head on her shoulder.
"Today was amazing and I had so much fun." She says, kissing my forehead. I smile.
"I had a great time. I love you, Jessie." I smile, looking up at her and giving her a soft kiss.
"I love you too, Madison." She smiles. I pull up her shirt to reveal her swollen tummy that had our little boy. I kiss her stomach with a smile.
"I love you little Michael." I grin. "Soon, Jess. So soon." I kiss her cheek and she nods.
"My birthday is when he's going to be here." She smiles.
"Here's your little boy." The nurse smiles, handing Michael to Jess. I smile as her attention is towards him. "And here's the birth certificate. I wrote down the date and time, if you just want to write down his name and sign as a parent." The nurse smiles at me, handing me his birth certificate.
"Thank you." I smile. I start to write his name on the line. "Michael Link Clifford-Hart." I say as I write.
"Link?!" Jess asks confused. I giggle.
"Yeah. So what my dad told me is that when Alex was born, Michael wanted his middle name to be Link, but Dad said no." I laugh. She shakes her head laughing.
"Alright. It sounds cute so it's okay." She giggles. I sign my name on the birth certificate.
"Alright, hand me over the little stinker so you can sign the birth certificate." I laugh quietly as she hands him over to me. I smile down at him as she signs her name. "Hi." I smile. He opens his eyes to reveal a grey-ish blue since he's only a baby. I smile, kissing his forehead. "I wish Grandpa Michael was here to see you. But only Grandpa Luke is here." I smile weakly as a few tears roll down my cheeks. I wipe them away before they drip on him. "He passed away today, 22 years ago. I was only seven. I have so many stories to tell you about him and Grandpa Luke for when you get older. I can't wait to tell you all about Grandpa Michael." I smile proudly, kissing his nose and then wiping my tears again. "You're going to love him, I promise."
