I think the aspect I most enjoyed out of this was all the family banter - between couples, parents and children, and even some of the Taylors - Shelley bits. The love just keeps flowing. Maybe when the boy grows up they can claim H.E. stands for His Excellency.

Can't tell you how much I loved this story! You did such a perfect job with new material yet keeping everyone in character. I'm kind of bummed though that Coach T. and Matt never got to smoke their celebratory cigars. Bonus chapter maybe? Haha. Would love to see a story where their new little family visits Dillon or anything with the Taylor's imparting their parental wisdom. This fandom is so small and I always love to see well written fics. Hope you publish more soon!

Aww..well done! I'm sorry to see that it's "complete", but you did a great job, as usual :) As always, I'll be looking forward to whatever you decide to write next!

Perfect name choice with Henry Eric. I love your Eric/Tami stories as well, but I just love the way you write the four of them together. There's just something about seeing these two couples interact that is just so fun and interesting to me. Hope maybe you'll write a future piece on Matt/Julie/Eric/Tami/adventures as parents/grandparents to little Henry Saracen. Thanks for writing these last few chapters, they were great!

I love the name Henry! It's perfect for baby Saracen. And Eric makes a great middle name, too. I've enjoyed re-reading this story and the new chapters as well. Thanks!

LOVE :) Great ending and there are endless opportunities for follow-up stories if you should ever feel so inclined. (i.e. baby Henry goes back and meets Grandma Saracen and the crew in Dillon or a story where Uncle Landry babysits...haha.) So glad you decided to add on to this one! The Taylor's were seriously at their best here with the bantering in the hospital room.

The Taylor's were great here as nervous grandparents to be. The little moments like Eric charming the hospital staff and Matt ignoring the nurse and sneaking out to get Julie water were great. I was holding my breath along with Matt but I love how you wrote the birth, especially the end, once we knew BBS was okay. Very touching. Hoping to see more of Matt bonding with his son. Speaking of Matt and having a son, whatever happened to Shelby? Wonder if she'll show up here to meet her grandson or at least get a phone call. (Maybe we should put her on the island of lost characters with Waverly)

You seem to write from experience. Good chapter!

The thought of Matt throwing Tami out of the room is totally hilarious but I'm glad he did...as it didn't seem like she was helping much..haha. Loved Coach's line to her: "Thattta boy. If he can stand up to you, he'll grow a backbone yet." I definitely agree that Matt is not the aggressive type per say but he seems to save his moments for when they count.
As far as the birth of baby boy Saracen, obviously you temporarily gave me heart palpitations, but the last line had me smiling. Hope we get to see some more family bonding with the two new parents before the eager grandparents bust in :) Also curious to see if Coach and Matt actually smoke those cigars.

Haven't been on here in a while (need to catch up on your other fics!) but when I got the email alert that there was a new chapter for this, I got excited and had to come and read right away. Coach is totally on target here putting pressure on Matt. The Taylor's won't be in the delivery room so he's going to need to hold it together. I just know Matty will rise to the occasion though!
| Guest 11/22/12 . chapter 21
So glad you picked this one up again! (My fave FNL fic on this site thus far) You do such an impeccable job with these characters!
As for Matt, I'm actually surprised he's being so soft and passive. He should be the one comforting her...not Mrs Taylor! I'd think he'd take no prisoners when it comes to his Julie, especially when shes about to birth his child. MATT! Time to man up and get your ass in gear!
| Shiny Jewel 11/22/12 . chapter 21
Since it's Thanksgiving, I will say I am certainly thankful you're continuing this for a few more chapters :) First of all, I love the fact that Julie wants to give baby boy Saracen wacky literary names and how mortified Coach is by this. I can definitely see Matt being somewhat traditional too as far as names go but afraid to argue with Julie in her current state. I know Matt's got it in him somewhere to be assertive (we've seen it in spurts before)..hoping once he sees Julie in labor his survival instinct will kick in and he'll dish out the smack down to that hospital staff. It's his job...not Coach's!

I liked this story. It made me chuckle quite a bit and I could see the characters saying and doing what you wrote.
| luvtheheaven 11/5/12 . chapter 20
Tyra Williams! Lmao! "I hope baby Saracen doesn't do performance art"! Your'e a riot. And gosh I love little non-religious Matt & Julie and the suggestion that Tami & Eric can look up a local church online... PERFECTION. ;)
And aw that ending just warmed my heart so much; I was almost tearing up.
I do kinda want to see Julie give birth with Matt & Tami in the room with her and Eric in the waiting room, I want to read about Matt & Julie being parents, but I knew going into this that the fic was completed at 20 chapters and as I read them I saw you weren't gonna get past the birth if you even got that far. This was a very nice ending here, you didn't need to necessarily go further. ;) You're a great writer and this was super enjoyable to read, even if it was at least as much Eric/Tami as Matt/Julie, if not MORE Eric/Tami... :P It was still amazing.
