27. Finishing the Nursery

Sean’s POV

         I was walking on air as Lana and I headed over to pick Addie up from Bex and Marcus’s house. I help Lana out of the car and into the house. When Bex opens the door, she kisses her best friend and Marcus gives me a man hug.

“So, am I going to have a nephew or another niece?”

“That’s a surprise. Wait till everyone else gets here.”

         Lana and I both walk in. Addie’s in the living room playing with her toys and Baby Lizzie is sleeping in her rocker. Bex had drinks and food set out on the table. I follow Marc to the garage and we start hanging out.

“So, what’s the plan for tomorrow?”

“I’m staying home with Addie, we’re going to finish the nursery.”

“What all do you have left to do?”

“I have to paint the babies name on the wall and finish the rainbow swirls. Then all I have to do is set up the furniture and I’m good to go. I need to get clothes, diapers and baby stuffed animals.”

“Well if it’s a girl you can use Addie’s old clothes.”
“Lana did pack them all into a box. They haven’t been opened either.”

“Well I can’t wait to find out.”

“I’m going to tell you Marc. It’s a little girl.”

“That’s wonderful.”

“Yes, it is.”

         An hour later we were sitting around the dining room table. I squeezed Lana’s hand and she squeezed mine. Marcus and Bex sat on one side of the table, Jen and Colin sat on the other side across from them. We sat across from Ginny and Josh. Addie, Hugo and Oliver sat at the child table. The two newest additions slept peacefully in their cradle. I held up my wine glass and Lana held her water. I stood and smiled.

“I would like to make a toast to my beautiful wife, my darling Adelaide and our baby. I would like to announce that we are having a daughter, her name will be Allison Victoria Maguire. Addie, you’re going to have a little sister.”

         Addie stood up from her table and toddled off away. It was an awkward three-year-old run. Lana pushes back from the table and runs off to get Addie. A few moments of silence and Lana returns with Addie in her arms. Addie’s crying and her face is all red. She keeps shaking her head.

“Mommy, I don’t want a little sister.”

“Why not?”

“No, I’m the baby.”

“Addie, I still love you even when Allie is born.”

“BEX!”

         Lana hands Addie to Bex and sits back down. We finish our meal while Bex goes upstairs to let Addie fall asleep on the master bed. A few minutes later Bex comes back and kisses Lana’s cheek.

“She’s asleep.”

“Thank you Bex.”

“No problem.”

         Finally, when dinner is done, the dishes are washed, we say our farewells and I go to get Addie. I carry her to the car and buckle her into her car seat. When we get home, I put her in bed and she whispers.

“Daddy, I don’t want to be a big sister.”

“It’s okay Addie. You’ll be a wonderful big sister.”

         I kiss her head and tuck her in. Then I return to the bedroom, Lana’s already in bed and passed out. I kiss her cheek and change to start working on the nursery. I step into the nursery and I’m happy how far it’s come in the last three months. Only one wall remains to be painted with swirls. I pull out the pink paint and very carefully start painting Allison Victoria onto the wall. When I’m done two hours later I step back to examine my work. Then I slowly start creating swirls of every color. Towards two I stop and examine my work again. Tomorrow all I needed to do was hang the chandelier and finish the walls. I only had 3/4th of a wall left to paint.

         I return to the bedroom and quickly shower, then I climb into bed and wrap my arms around Lana, I kiss her neck and place a hand over Allison. I was the luckiest man alive, I had a beautiful wife and soon to be two amazing daughters. I had the best career any man could ask for and the best friends that made my life complete. My life was complete and it was perfectly planned out.

         The next morning, I could feel the sun streaming in through the windows and the smell of bacon cooking downstairs. I got out of bed and ran a comb through my hair. Then, I changed into a pair of jeans and one of my newer t-shirts. I would change later before I started painting again. I got the key to the room and put it in my pocket before heading downstairs.

         Addie was sitting in her booster seat with a plate full of bacon and eggs and she was drinking chocolate milk. Lana was rushing around the kitchen trying to make myself and her a plate. Finally, after a quick kiss we both sat down to eat breakfast.

“So, Sean what’s the plan for today?”

“Addie and I are going to stay home and do a few household chores while you and the ladies are going to go get Mani Pedi’s. Are we going to buy any clothes for Allison?”

“No, I have boxes of baby clothes from Addie that I ordered online and never opened. My dress designer helped Eduardo make them.”

“Okay, you have fun and don’t spend too much money. Do we have any diapers?”

“Yep boxes of them in the attic. Why are you asking me all this?”

“If you didn’t, Addie and I were going to go shopping.”

“Oh, well better go then. Bex is honking her horn at me.”

“Have fun, I can’t wait to see your pretty pink toes.”

         Lana bent down and kissed me before clearing away the plates and putting them in the sink. She bent down and kissed Addie before grabbing her bag and leaving. I smiled, her baby bump was barely showing. I couldn’t believe that in five months I would be a dad.

         After Lana left I washed the dishes very quickly and picked Addie up.

“What are we going to clean daddy?”

“You’re going to help me finish Allison’s nursery. I’m going to let you line the baseboards with your hand prints. Then we’ll put footprints on the floor.”

“Yay! Paint!”

“You have to change.”

“Okay.”

         I carry Addie up the stairs and into the mast bedroom. I put one of my old white shirts over her dress and then change my shirt. Then we go across the hall and I unlock the door. Addie just stares at the walls and the rainbow swirls. I pull out the colors and pour them into different buckets. I then start painting on the swirls as Addie puts her hand prints perfectly along the base boards. She does one color all the way around then another until noon. At noon, she stops and sits down on the floor. She watches me finish the rainbow swirls and I was my hands.

“Is it done Daddy?”

“All that’s left is the furniture. Which is already in here? I just need to uncover them and put them into place. Then we fill it with clothes and diapers.”

“Daddy was this supposed to be my nursery? With all the feathers and rainbow?”
“No your room was your nursery but this furniture and the clothes were supposed to be yours.”

“Why did Mommy give me away?”

“I’ll tell you when you’re older.”

“I’m three why can’t you tell me now?”

“Because Addie I don’t know why your Mommy gave you away. She just did and now we have you back.”
“Okay, I’m hungry.”

“I’ll make you lunch and you can eat while I push the furniture into place.”

         Addie runs out the door and down the stairs into the kitchen. She opens the fridge and pulls out one of her lunchables. I put her into her chair and leave her with an opened lunchable and a drink.

“When you’re done just call me okay?”

“Okay, I love you Daddy.”

“I love you too Addie.”

         I head back upstairs and uncover the furniture. I examine each piece and try to decide where they would best fit. I pushed the dresser up against one wall, then I pushed the changing station up against another wall and finally Allie’s crib up underneath her name. I then picked up the cradle and carried it to our bedroom. I positioned it on Lana’s side of the bed and stepped back to examine my work. Then I went back into the nursery and started pulling out boxes from the closet. There was a bin full of books, I put the rocking chair over by the cradle and the books by the rocking chair. I ran up to the attic and started hanging up dresses. Then I filled the changing station with wipes, powder, diapers and cloths.

“Daddy!”

         I stopped what I was doing and ran downstairs. Addie was all done with her lunch and ready to go back upstairs.

“Daddy can I go take a nap?”

“You want to take a nap?”

“Uh huh.”

         I picked her up and carry her up the stairs, we walk into her room and she gets in bed. I cover her with her feather blanket and kiss her head.

“Mommy’ll be home soon, so by the time you wake up she’ll be home.”
“Yay! Mommy!”

“Yay! Mommy!”

         I close her bedroom door and return back to the nursery, all I had to do now was hang the chandelier and unload clothes. I was excited, Lana would be able to see the new nursery when she got back and would have five marvelous months to enjoy it. It had been time consuming and had resulted in many sleepless nights but this was all worth it.

         I run up the attic steps and dig among boxes trying to find the clothes. I had hung up at least ten dresses in each size all the way up to a year and now I would find baby clothes. After digging through such a big mess, I found four boxes that were unopened. I carried them downstairs and began to fill up the dresser drawers.

Socks, shirts, tiny baby shoes, onesies, tutus, pants, shorts, skirts, and finally blankets, burp cloths, nursing blankets. When I was done, I locked the door and ran to change. Then I remembered I still had to hang the chandelier, I quickly hung it as I heard the front door open and Lana’s voice calling out.

“Sean I’m home.”

I locked the door, changed and ran back downstairs, I fast – forwarded through Game of Thrones and Lana walked in.

“Hi Lana, how was your day?”

“It was wonderful. How was yours?”

“Full of joy.”
