I was just handed my release papers and was in a wheelchair being rolled out of the hospital. Stupid hospital procedure. However I was holding my perfect little boy in my arms and he was fast asleep. "Edward you have the car seat right?"
"Yes the hospital already checked it out and it's fine."
I stood up out of the chair careful not to wake Aiden as we had now approached our vehicle which was waiting outside the front door. "We have the T-shirts for Elli and Mason right?"
Edward grabbed the diaper bag and put it in the back seat. He came over and took Aiden out of my arms. "Yes Bella we have everything. Stop worrying honey." He stated as he buckled Aiden into the seat. He pulled back out and walked over to me.
"I'm sorry I'm just nervous about having a newborn in the house." He wrapped his arms around my waist gently because I was still sore. It was just yesterday that I had delivered a baby. He leaned forward until our foreheads were touching.
"I know. But you shouldn't be worried, this isn't the first time we've done this. And honestly it can't be worse than twins." He pressed his lips to mine for a brief kiss. "Now hop in so we can bring him home, and he can meet his brother and sister."
It had turned out that Carlisle had a bit more difficult of a time getting 5 kids out of a hotel in the morning. It was 10:30 now and they had just left. They wouldn't be home for at least and hour and a half probably more with how many kids he was driving. We decided to meet at our house instead of the hospital.
"I'm going to sit back here with him." I told Edward as I stepped into the car next to Aiden.
"That's fine. We will be home in about 10 minutes anyways." Edward walked around and got in the drivers seat. Soon we had pulled out of the parking lot and were on our way home.
I leaned over to look at Aiden as he slept peacefully. After a minute or two his little eyes opened and he stared at me. "Hey Aiden. We're going home aren't we?" His eyes just stared into mine as if he could see into my soul.
"Is he awake?" Edward asked as he turned onto the street we lived on.
"Yeah he just opened his eyes." I smiled at the little boy and ran my finger across his forehead. Edward pulled into our driveway and got out. He grabbed the diaper bag and everything else from the hospital so I unbuckled Aiden and picked him up into my arms.
I walked into the door behind Edward and moved to the sofa. After putting away everything Edward came and sat beside me. "You know he looks a lot like you Bella." Edward said kissing the side of my head.
I looked at him and smiled. "Besides the bronze hair he actually looks just like Emmett did when he was born."
"Really?" He looked a little shocked.
"Yeah his features resemble Emmett's in baby pictures."
"Well if he acts anything like your brother we are going to be in for a long eighteen years." Edward chuckled as he said it.
I laughed with him. "Maybe, but Emmett has a good heart."
"I know. He really loves you and is protective I guess I don't need to worry about Elli. Now she will have two brothers that will look after her." He was smug. He obviously didn't like the thought of his little girl with a boy.
"Are you forgetting that Elli is two years older than him? And even though Mason is the same age, what makes you think she's going to listen to her brothers? I know I never listened to Emmett."
"Well we will just have to wait and see." He mumbled just a bit angry.
I moved Aiden so I could hold him in one arm. With the other I put my finger under Edward's chin forcing him to look at me. I brought his mouth to mine and kissed him. "But I got you." I whispered.
He kissed me again and then pulled back. "Emmett loved me." I snorted. Edward turned on me. "What? He did."
"No he didn't. You and I both know that for the first year and half I dated you, Emmett did everything he could to keep you away from me."
"Okay so he played some pranks, but we always got him back." I smiled remembering how after a really romantic date I went back to Edward's house. We were seniors in high school. Edward and I had been dating for about 6 months but had known each other since sophomore year. His parents had gone out of town for the weekend so after our dinner, we went back to his house. We walked into his room and everything about it had completely changed.
He no longer had a bed, but had a yoga mat on the floor in its place. His CD collection had vanished and was replaced by a bunch of Teen girl magazines. He no longer had a couch or a TV. On one of the empty walls in his room was a spray painted message. If you want your stuff back don't do anything stupid! It figured Emmett knew that we were going to be there alone. Well not that we were going to do anything, but literally Edward didn't touch me the rest of the night.
I laughed at the memory. "Babe you were so scared that he would actually get rid of your stuff."
"I was not." He stated stubbornly. I rose an eyebrow at him. "Fine maybe just a little. But honestly what would you have done? He had all of my piano music and compositions. I couldn't let him destroy them."
I laughed again. "I know. Besides, we probably wouldn't have done anything that night anyways."
He looked over at me and his eyes were lusty. "Probably not. Emmett tried really hard, but we got around to it eventually." His hand had moved to my thigh. He was tracing patterns.
I eyed him before speaking. "I'd slow down there Edward. Not only is our son right here," I gestured to the little boy who was still in my arms, "but we can't do anything for at least 6 weeks. All you're going to do is make it more difficult on yourself."
"Like you aren't thinking about it too." He scoffed but he looked a bit sad at my realization.
"I'm not the one feeling you up." I chuckled as he quickly removed his hand from my leg. I moved so I could kiss him again. "I promise baby in six weeks I will make it up to you." I kissed him quickly before moving Aiden into his arms.
He took him swiftly and settled back into the couch. "You better."
I laughed as I pulled myself off the couch and moved towards the kitchen. "Besides we have Aiden to take our minds off of it. So much happens when they are little we wouldn't want to miss one moment of it."
"What are you doing?"
"I'm just getting myself a snack. This momma is sick and tired of hospital food. I want real food. And it appears that the family has arrived." I added as I looked out the kitchen window to see the cars pulling into the driveway.
I quickly got my sandwich and moved back to my spot on the sofa as everyone came through the door. "Thanks for knocking guys." Edward declared sarcastically from his spot. I glared at him telling him with my eyes that they were more than welcome to come in like that.
"I'm sorry for Edward, you're fine. Come on in."
"Well it's not like we could walk in on something. That won't be happening for at least 6 weeks." Rosalie said as she moved to sit down.
"The longest 6 weeks of eternity." Emmett stated. I giggled.
"We were actually just talking about that.' I said. Edward snapped his head to me and pleaded with his eyes for me not to continue so I giggled again. "Anyways, where are the kids?" I had just noticed that only Alice, Rose, Emmett, and Jasper had come in.
"Carlisle and Esme were running just a tiny bit behind us. They will be in shortly." Alice answered my question.
Just then the door swung open and Elli came running into the house. "MOMMY!" I quickly moved from my spot and met her a few feet from the door. I crouched down and let her run, squealing the whole way, into my arms. I grabbed her tightly to me.
"Hey baby girl, did you have fun with Grandma and Grandpa?"
"Mmmhmm." She still hadn't let go of me with her little arms securely wrapped around my neck. "But I missed you."
"I missed you too baby."
She jumped away from me then and had a huge smile on her face. "Where da baby?" I laughed.
"He's with daddy on the couch. You can go sit by daddy but just look okay?" She nodded and ran towards Edward.
I looked back to the door and saw Mason. He ran to me and gave me a hug as well. I held him tightly just as I had Elli. "Mommy yous squishin me." I let him go.
"Sorry bud, but I missed you."
"I missed you too." He came to me and kissed my cheek. Then just as Elli had he pulled away. "Where my brodder?" I smiled and kissed his cheek.
"Over there with daddy go sit on the other side of him." He ran and climbed up on the couch. I walked and kneeled down in front of Edward so I could watch as they interacted with him.
"Hi baby!" Elli said a little loudly.
"Shh. Elli sweetie you have to be quiet around the baby. Use your inside voice please." She nodded still undeterred from her joy. I picked her up and placed her on my lap so I could sit on the sofa instead of the ground.
"We can pway caws and games." Mason said looking straight at him. I smiled along with the rest of the family who had scattered amongst the room.
Elli looked at me, "Why is he sweeping momma?"
"Because babies sleep a lot sweetie. They get tired much faster than you do. So Aiden has to sleep more than you do." She nodded as if she understood.
"I touch?" Elli asked.
I smiled. "Yes, but you have to use gentle fingers okay? Be careful." Edward and I both watched closely as she ran her little finger slowly along his forehead. "There you go just like that Elli." Her grin got even bigger after my praise.
We watched as both kids spoke little nothings to Aiden for a while. Elli spoke too loud again and Aiden began to stir before crying. Edward rocked him and bounced him but he continued to wail. I watched as Mason and Elli both covered their ears.
"Why is he cwying?" Elli asked.
"He just got a little scared honey. He's fine." I tucked a loose piece of hair behind her ear.
We tried for a few minutes to get him to quiet down. Finally I took Aiden from Edward but he continued to cry. "Maybe he's hungry Bella." Edward said.
"But it has barely been an hour since he fed." I said as I started to pace. Nothing seemed to soothe him.
"Mommy can we take him back now?" Mason asked and everyone chuckled.
"Sorry bud but he's stuck with us now." Edward said ruffling his hair.
"I'm going to take him upstairs and see if he wants to eat."
"Do you want me to come with you?"
"No I'll be fine. You stay and keep everyone company. It shouldn't take very long, he shouldn't be very hungry." I grabbed a burping blanket and the boppy pillow from the closet and went up the stairs.
My family had left after a few hours of basically watching Aiden sleep. After his crying Bella fed him and he was content until the company had left. It was now 8:30 at night and I had finished tucking in Elli and Mason.
They both seemed really happy to have a little brother. And they both expressed their love for him before letting Bella take him into our room for the night. I walked into our bedroom and saw her standing next to the bassinet watching Aiden sleep. I felt a small sense of déjà vu from my daydreaming only a few days ago.
I walked over and wrapped my arms around he waist letting her lean backwards into my chest. "We should probably try to get as much sleep as possible." I whispered since my mouth was right next to her ear, as my head rested gently on her shoulder.
"I know." She sighed and leaned even farther into me. "But I just like watching him sleep."
We both sat there for a while looking at the wonderous little body lying before us. Aiden's chest moved up and down slightly. You could barely see it through the blanket he was swaddled in. I was lost in thought when I heard Bella talking to me but I had missed her question.
"Sorry what was that babe?"
She turned slightly so we were just as close but she could look into my eyes. "I was saying how we have three perfect children. And that I'm so glad I have a family with you."
"I'm glad too. You are the love of my life Isabella Cullen. I've loved you since the day I met you. Thank you for giving me three beautiful children and choosing to spend your life with me. I don't know what I would do without you."
I leaned in slowly so that our lips were just barely touching. I wanted her to kiss me. It didn't take more than a few seconds before she realized my gesture. Before kissing me she ran he fingers into my hair and moved to fully face me. I wrapped my arms around her and pulled her closer. Finally after looking into my eyes for a few seconds she kissed me.
I felt all the love I had for her and the family we had created together pour into that kiss, both coming from me and from her. She pulled back slightly enough so that her words could be spoken. She said one last thing very quietly. "I believe our family is complete."
