A few months later
Caroline Ingalls waited patiently out in the waiting room of Doctor Baker's office in Walnut Grove. Doctor Baker stepped out from behind the curtain.
"Well Doctor Baker is it was I thought it was?" Caroline stood up. She had suspected that Mary could be pregnant.
"I'll let Mary tell you." Doctor Baker said with a slight smile on his face.
Mary stepped out from behind the curtain as she buttoned the last button on her calico blouse with a cream background and little pale pink flowers. Her skirt was a plain brown.
"Ma, I'm going to have a baby!" she exclaimed happily.
"Oh Mary! That's wonderful!" Caroline said hugging Mary.
"Doctor Baker said that the baby will come in about five to six months. Oh I can't wait!" giggled Mary.
"Well come Mary, let's go back home and I'll show you some baby clothes. Grace is three now and she's grown out of them." Said Caroline as the two women walked to the Ingalls' place.
Sixteen year old Mary and the older Caroline sifted through a drawer of old baby clothes. Some thirteen year old Laura wore and some nine year old Carrie wore. And there were even ones that sixteen year old Mary wore. There were knitted sweaters and bonnets, little dresses and bonnets, all kinds of little clothes.
"Take what you'd like, but we can always sew and knit more things if you'd like." Said Caroline.
Mary picked a few things including some diapers. And she walked home. She made some dinner and just as she was setting the table Bobby walked in.
"Bobby! I'm glad your home." The two kissed.
"Hi Mary dinner smells good." Bobby said sitting down.
Mary set the table and served the food. There were peas, beef, and biscuits. And of course some milk.
"Bobby, I went to see Doctor Baker today." Stated Mary as she ate a bite of peas.
Bobby looked up with concern.
"We're going to have baby!" Mary said.
"A baby?" asked Bobby stunned.
"Yes!" giggled Mary.
"Gee, I can't believe it!" said Bobby.
"The baby should be here in five months." Added Mary.
"So we'll be able to move to Missouri before the baby starts school so it will be easier on her or him, not having to start over." Stated Bobby.
"I suppose." Mary said. She didn't want to leave Walnut Grove but she didn't want to get into an argument tonight, especially with the new news of the baby on the way.
