1st Wedding Anniversary

Sean’s POV

I open my eyes and realize what today is. It’s my and Lana’s first wedding anniversary. Exactly a year ago today we were saying I do. Exactly a year ago today she got pregnant with our little bundle of joy Allison. I can’t believe she’s already three months old. Tonight, we’re hiring a babysitter and going out on the town with our friends and family. I didn’t know where we are going to dinner though because Lana and I are meeting Rebecca, Marcus, Colin, Jennifer, Josh, and Ginny after dinner for a celebration party at Jennifer’s house. Baby Liam was going to his Grandma’s for the evening. I roll over and wrap my arms around Lana. I kiss her neck and she rolls over and kisses me.

“Happy Anniversary to my lovely wife.”

“Happy Anniversary to my handsome husband. What are we doing today?”

“Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Then a nice stroll in the park to our picnic lunch. After lunch, a long horse ride to the bridge where I proposed. Finally, a carriage ride to dinner. After dinner, we’re going to Jennifer’s for our party.”

“What about the kids? I know Ella’s going to babysit Allie and Addie but what about the other children?”

“Liam’s going to his grandmother’s, Elizabeth, Vanessa, and Victoria have a sitter. Oliver, Hugo, and Jocelyn also have a sitter. Our children have a sitter. I think that about covers it.”

“I love you Sean…I’ve loved you since the day I met you.”

“I love you too Lana…and I will love you forever. Hurry up and get ready. Ella will be here soon. I’m going to get Addie and Allie ready.”

I get out of bed and put on nice clothes. I run into Allison’s room and find her already awake and grinning up at her rainbow baby mobile. I get out her Wicked Witch onesie and change her diaper. I put her in her rocking sleeper and pop into Addie’s room. My little four-year-old is already awake and already dressed. When she sees me, she smiles and runs up to me. I pick her up and kiss her cheek.

“I love you, Daddy.”

“I love you too Addie. Are you ready?”

“Ready for what?”

         “Ella will be here soon.”

“Oh yes, I am ready. To spend the whole day with Ella and Allie. I love you, Daddy!”

“I love you too.”

         The doorbell rings and Lana walk out of the bedroom. She retrieves Allison and I hold Addie under my arm as we walk down the stairs. Ella comes in and smiles.

“Well if it isn’t the Maguire’s. Look sharp Mr. Maguire. Mrs. Maguire, you look stunning. And who’s this cutie?”
         Ella holds Allison and tickles our daughter under the chin. Addie pipes up.

“That’s Allison my baby sister. She’s called Allie. Like I’m called Addie but my real name is Adelaide.”

“Thank you for the information, Addie. What time should I expect you home?”

“Around midnight? Addie and Allie’s schedules are on the fridge. Meals are in the fridge. It’s all on the fridge.”

“Happy Anniversary by the way.”

“Thank you.”

“Your very welcome Mr. Maguire.”

         I wrap my arm around Lana’s waist and we walk out the door. We stroll down the street to Tiffany’s and take the corner table by the window. Lana leans over the table and plants a soft kiss on my lips.

“What are you getting?”

“I’m not hungry. I’m just glad to be with my husband on our first wedding anniversary.”

“That reminds me…”

         I pull a velvet box out of my pocket and open it. Lana gasps as she stares at her new diamond ear studs. She takes them out of the box and slips them into her ears.

“I didn’t get you a present.”

“It’s fine. I have you and my two beautiful daughters. That’s all I really need.”

         Finally, Lana orders a bagel with cream cheese and bacon. I order the two eggs, bacon, sausage and orange juice. My beautiful wife opts to drink water instead. With breakfast done and paid for we take a leisurely stroll through the park. We walk for hours and talk about life. About the past year of marriage. Lana stops to stare at the birds and the clouds.

“Lana do you think if you ever did get pregnant…do you think you would die?”

“I don’t know. Should we pray for a sign telling us we’ll have a son with no strings attached?”

“Should we?”

         Lana and I join hands. We both silently say a prayer before continuing our walk. Around 12 and towards the end of our stroll Lana stops about seven yards from the picnic area and points to the ground. I wrap my arms around her waist and look over her shoulder at what’s she’s pointing too. A blue feather about five inches long is in our way. Lana runs over and picks it up. She stares at me with tears in her eyes. I walk over to her and wrap my arms around her. Her big brown eyes stare at me and she manages to rasp a few words out between tears.

“We prayed for a sign but I didn’t expect an answer. Sean…do you know what this means?”

“Yes, I know what it means. Lana you and I are going to have a son.”

“Should we buy a pregnancy test?”

“No honey, I honestly don’t think three months after another baby that you’re going to have another one.”

“What if I am pregnant?”
“What if you aren’t?”
“Allison’s only three months old. We can’t have another baby yet. But, can we stop by and get a test?”

“If that will make you feel better. Do you want to go to your doctor?”

“Yes. Let’s go…after lunch and a carriage ride.”

         Four hours later…

Lana sits up as Dr. Reese walks in with a clipboard. I grip her hand and Dr. Reese shakes her head and sighs.

“You’re pregnant. You’re due April 30. Do you realize the potential threat to your health?”

“Yes Dr. Reese, it wasn’t intentional. We prayed about this.”

“How long have you been praying?”


“You realize you got pregnant after Allison was born. Allison will be nine months old when her baby sister or brother arrives maybe ten months or eleven depending on how long that little one plans to stay in there. After you have this baby Lana I’m tying your tubes.”

“That’s fine by me. As long as Sean agrees.”

“I agree. Dr. Reese, we’re just as surprised as you are. Lana and I’ve only had intercourse once since Allie was born. Now we got to wait nine more months?”
“SEAN! Sorry, excuse my husband’s inappropriate behavior. It’s our anniversary.”

“Happy Anniversary. Lana we may end up doing a C-section because another natural birth could kill you.”

“How high are the statistics?”
“Mr. Maguire the percentage rate of death calculated for your wife according to her last two deliveries is 95%”

         Lana turns to me and starts crying. Dr. Reese comforts her and I move in to comfort her. I pick her chin up with my left hand and stroke her back with my right hand. I plant a kiss on her mouth and then I pick her up and carry her out the door. I have no clue what we’re going to do with two babies. We could move Allison in with Addie.

“Lana, don’t we have another guest room?”

“We have two more spare rooms. Addie’s, ours, Allie’s, the new baby’s and our guest room.”

“Lana, I hope we have a boy.”

“I want a boy too.”

“I can’t believe I’m only a week pregnant and blood tests already found out.”

“I’m concerned about what if it’s late?”
“What if what’s late?”

“Our baby?”

“Sean don’t worry. Time is irrelevant to our story.”

“I’m expecting a boy so even if we don’t know the gender…for your birthday we’re going shopping for a baby boy!”

“Fine. That’s next month anyway.”
         After Dinner…at the party…

         Lana’s POV

We arrive at our anniversary party precisely when we meant too. Colin opens the door and offers his well-wishes. We head into the living room and find our beautiful family. All adults and no children. Ginny pours eight drinks and Josh hands them out. I refuse a drink but I didn’t expect Bex and Jennifer both to refuse drinks. Ginny comments as usual.

“That’s three not drinking. Jennifer and Bex both have a 10-month-old but Lana you have a newborn. So, this isn’t adding up.”

“Easy Ginny, I’ll fix this in a moment. Marcus and I have a bit of news.”

Rebecca wraps an arm around her husband and Marcus is standing there like he did something to be proud of. He’s not an awarding winning actor so I have my ideas on what he did. Finally, Bex pipes up.

“As you know in two months the twins will be two and Lizzie or Elizabeth will be a year old. With the new age of technology recently released earlier this year Marcus and I are expecting a little boy in late December. His name is going to be Alexander Daniel.”

“That’s wonderful. Josh pour everyone a round of drinks.”

“No…not so fast Rebecca. Colin and I also have some major news. With Liam turning a year old soon, we thought it would be a good idea to give him a little sister in late December. Hopefully not on Alex’s birthday because we’ve already had that happen once with Lizzie who’s slightly like two minutes older than Liam.”

“Jennifer, what’s wrong with that?”
“Well, Lana if you must know…Liam and Lizzie think they’re twins.”

“No in my opinion, sorry Marc and Colin in advance for saying this. No offense to you either Sean. But I think Liam and Lizzie are going to make a cute couple…”

“Josh that was inappropriate. Jennifer, what’s your daughter’s name?”
“Katelyn Diana."
         Finally, before the round of drinks are poured Sean wraps his arms around my waist and bends down to whisper in my ear.

“Do you want to tell them?”

“Yes let’s. Then only five people will be drinking.”

“Lana and I also have an announcement. We know that Allison is only three months old and Addie is only four but…today we found out that Lana is exactly seven days pregnant.”

“That’s too early to tell anything.”

“That’s wonderful news.”

“Thank you, Marc and Bex, Sean and I are hoping for a little boy. This wedding anniversary party turned into a big game of “I’m Pregnant’”

“Josh and I also have some news. It’s not what you think. We’re done with babies. Jocelyn is only a month old. She’s sixteen days old and she’s enough. Josh and I are…well I don’t want to ruin the party.”

Ginny sits down on the sofa and starts crying. All of us girls comfort her. Finally, I gather up the courage to speak up. The men talk to Josh as he sheds a few tears.

“We’re here for you Ginny. What’s up?”
“All three of you always seem to be pregnant around the same time. I want just once to be pregnant where all four of us are. Lana has three, Bex has four, I have three and Jennifer has two. Lana had four, Bex had two and I had four up until today. All of you of were at the doctor and I was there too. We were all there together. You were finding out you were pregnant and I was finding out I was pregnant. I had a miscarriage. Doing their science thing…it was a girl.”

Jennifer hugs Ginny and starts crying too.

“Ginny I know your pain. I never told anyone this but I miscarried two…it was twins.”

“I think we’ve all miscarried. I miscarried my son. Ginny miscarried her daughter. Jennifer miscarried twins and Bex…well you can ask her. She told me in secrecy.”

“I miscarried one in 2016 in December and two in 2017. So, I guess we were all destined to be mums of four. Just only one of us actually made it and believe me it’s not all what it’s cut out to be.”

We all get into a group hug and pour Ginny a nice cocktail of our favorite drinks. Sure, some can call it my anniversary but I guess anniversaries are more separating the couple from their family. When the men come back in I stand up and toast.

“A toast to us four mothers destined to become mothers of four but it not happening. A toast to one mother who did become a mother of four…in the end. To our miscarried children, may they never be forgotten. As Bex would say or just said: “It’s not all what it’s cut up to be.” Sean, this is our first wedding anniversary. In February, we’ll have another baby. Anniversaries are supposed to be time away from family but when you get married and you have three kids before the second anniversary it becomes all about family. Anniversaries are supposed to be happy but moments like those that which just happened makes you realize even in the sad moments, with family you are happy. In November, Bex and Marc will celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary. Josh and Ginny will soon celebrate their eighth and then Jennifer and Colin will celebrate their third. Even when marriage hasn’t been that long and you still have four children, you still take time to invest in your partner. Sean, we’ve been married a year and it feels like we’ve been married for centuries. I love you and sometimes I wish I could go back and reject marrying Fred and then turning around and marrying you. But you can’t change the past and if I had made a different decision we wouldn’t have Addie.”

After my speech, I bid goodbye to my friends and Sean and I go home. We find the kids asleep and Ella’s all ready to go.

“How was your anniversary?”

“Good, I’m pregnant again.”
“Congrats and the kids were angels.”

“Thanks, Ella.”

“Sure thing Mrs. Maguire.”

“Lana’s fine.”

“Yes ma’am, Lana.”

Sean and I kiss our children goodnight before climbing into bed ourselves.

“Just think a baby in February or January or whenever we’ll have another baby.”

“What if he comes on Valentine’s Day?”
“He’ll be the product of true love technically speaking.”

“I suppose that’s not a bad thing.”

Sean kisses me and rolls over to sleep. I wish he would roll over and hold me. Eventually, he does and I fall asleep with a smile on my face.
