that was beautiful! I only wish Tony and Gibbs could've raised her. or better yet adopted a baby son and it would've been ssoooo cute! I can totes see tony being director too cause he can politic better than Gibbs but he's also got the Gibbs gut instinct thing going on

Hi Abby. Yes, people choosing a sperm donor get to see a picture - but of the donor as a child - and younger than the teen Tony/Michael with that big bowl cut.
Friend had twins this way and the donor photo she had was of him at age 9.
Despite Tony's own low opinion of himself as a father - he'd make a great daddy. He's a natural at it and doesn't know it.

"Mister DiNozzo?" she said.
"Yes," Tony said.
"I'm Emma," she said. "You probably don't remember me, but I—"
He had to interrupt her before she got any further. "I remember."
Ten years had passed since the case, but Tony hadn't let it slip from his memory. At the start, he got updates every month from the foster home where Emma lived, and then, after a year when Emma was adopted by a family in Charlottesville, he kept receiving updates on a more irregular basis from her adoptive mother.
...AW...! He kept tabs on her all that time! Even after she was adopted...!:):):)
"Come in." He held out his hand in an invitation.
She bit her lip tentatively. "Well, I'm not really allowed to come into strangers' houses."
"You've been here before," Tony said. "It's not really a stranger's house."
She grinned at him and didn't look the least bit apologetic. "That's the way my brother was when he was little. He screamed a lot."
"You did, too," Tony said.
...so sweet that he remembers her like that...and he tells her how she was when she was a baby, it's all so damn SWEET!:):):):):):P
Emma grinned and shook his hand. "You too." She looked from Gibbs to Tony and back. "Do you live together?"
Tony exchanged a glance with Gibbs. "Yeah."
"Are you together?" Emma asked frankly.
Tony chuckled. "Yeah."
"Cool," Emma said, grinning easily. "My favorite uncle lives with his boyfriend too."
...I knew she'd be cool with it.:P:P:P And it kinda reminds me of "Bones", when Booth told Angela that he was OK with her past lesbian relationship because he had a favorite aunt who had a girlfriend.:P:P:P
"Can you come kick Henry's ass if he's being stupid?" Emma asked innocently, referring to a kid who liked to cause trouble in her school.
...AWESOME! She says 'ass'!:P:P:P:):):)
"Come on, Director," Gibbs murmured into his ear.
... !:P:P It always seemed to me like Tony would hate/turn down the Director job...but he's still Gibbs' boss...so that makes it amusing.:P:P:P

Emma started sniffling at that point, face scrunching up with displeasure. Tony rubbed her back.
"I know, honey," he said. "I don't like her either."
On the one hand, he would get to give Emma away and he'd have his hands free again, he'd be able to sleep through the night, and he wouldn't have to change dirty diapers all day long, or have his eardrums ruptured by screaming – but on the other hand, he would have to give Emma away which meant—no Emma.
He realized suddenly that a small understanding as to why people had kids had festered and gotten a hold of his mind. It wasn't complete understanding – he didn't want to go out and get a girl pregnant, no thank you – but it was a part of it. For lack of a better word, he understood the love. Emma gave it unconditionally, just because Tony was there, because Tony took care of her. She didn't call him stupid, nor did she make him the butt of her jokes. She was simply there, happy to be with him, content to exist.
...so sweet...she gets him better than (nearly) everyone else.:):):)
She had quieted, as he walked around rubbing her back and holding her, talking to her in a quiet, soothing voice. Her small hands were fisted in his shirt and he wanted to think that she didn't quite want to leave him.
...Well, who would?:):P
"You're very special," Tony said to Emma, "and I will keep an eye on you. So you make sure you're good. Well, not too good. Too good is boring. But you should be bad on the side of good."
...He's gonna keep an eye on her...:) Cuz he LOVES her...!:):):):P:P
Two round ladies dressed in dark blue suits whom Tony could only assume came from Child Services stood by Gibbs' desk. They didn't look particularly happy.
"You've put us off long enough," one of them said.
...TONY: "Eat it, lady.":P:P:P:P
Gibbs didn't look impressed. "We had a killer to catch. Her safety was more important than your rules."
...Oh, OK, I thought they were talking to Tony...OK, change my previous response to Gibbs instead of Tony, then.:P:P:P
Tony hesitated. "Would it be possible for me to keep track of her? Just—know where she's going?"
He tried to deliver the words with as much charm as possible, and it seemed to work. The lady's frown melted away.
"It's not according to the rules," she said. "But I'll see what I can do."
...YAY! THE DINOZZO CHARM WINS AGAIN!:):):):P:P
Then he handed her over to the lady, and swallowed as he felt the heaviness in his heart. He couldn't seriously be heartbroken over a baby he had only known for three days. He couldn't. He was Anthony DiNozzo, NCIS Special Agent, goofy, silly—
—father with a daughter, if only for a few days.
...Again, sorry about the girly squealing.:P:P:P:P:P:):)
Hand wrapped around his cock, leaning on the other arm against the wall, he came, Gibbs' name on his lips.
...Well, that's a quick and interesting shift.:P:P But I guess he's also trying to keep his mind off baby Emma...
"She's still so little, and the world kind of sucks."
He realized that though Emma wasn't his, Gibbs was. Gibbs was his family. His home.
...I knew that would happen.:):) Tony would have to lose Emma, but he'd still have Gibbs...:):):)
| IGottaFindYou chapter 6 . 6/21/2012
Emma didn't care much that Gibbs and Tony had only had about an hour of sleep when she started wailing.
...Well, at least she didn't interrupt them at any time before that...:P:P:P:P
Tony wondered if he'd have to give her away today. Would they solve the case and find Rosen? He hoped so – most of him, anyway. There was a small part, a tiny part, one that was only barely allowed to voice its thoughts, that didn't really want them to solve the case. Not just yet.
...He's startin' to love his baby...!:):):):)
Tony pouted. "I'll be a good babysitter."
"You better be."
"Don't I even get a goodbye kiss?" Tony asked.
...Oh...so he's a PORNO babysitter...!:P:P:P:P:P:P
Tony put Emma in her car seat. There were no pictures of them together – there shouldn't really be, because they'd only been in each others' lives for two days and Tony would be a no one in her life pretty soon – but the idea of having a picture of her, of them, warmed Tony.
"Do they have her yet? Are we closing the case?" Abby asked. "Are you giving her back?"
Abby grinned. "Got it in one. She killed Emma's parents."
...DUDE! BABY IS PRESENT! Be a TAD more tactful!:P:P:P
Abby sighed. "This sucks."
"Yeah," Tony said softly, dropping a kiss on Emma's head. "It does."
"Can I hold her a little?" Abby asked.
Tony looked down at Emma. A sudden desire to say no to Abby's request shot through him, surprising him.
There was a smile, not on his face, but in his eyes, and with sudden clarity, Tony realized that Gibbs had come simply to see Tony – and perhaps Emma too.
| IGottaFindYou chapter 5 . 6/21/2012
For Tony, all it meant was that when the hour became late, he got to go home to Gibbs again, Emma in tow.
...OK, I know she's only six months old, but when you say 'Emma in tow" like that, I just get this adorable image of Tony walking to the elevator and Emma toddling along just slightly behind him, dragging along a blanket or stuffed animal...that'd be so cute.:):):):):):P
"What about you?" Tony asked. "You're good with babies and you carry a gun, and you could definitely protect her."
"Team leader," Gibbs said. "I delegate."
...Translation: *Gibbs Sticks Out Tongue*:P:P:P:P
"We should give her a bath," Gibbs said, making Tony jump.
...Wouldn't that wash off all the stuff Tony just put on her?:P
"Perhaps you should've taken off your shirt," Gibbs said.
...Gibbs...you shameless man...:P:P:P:P
Tony's mouth went dry when Gibbs pulled his shirt off. Damn, that man looked fine.
...And apparently, Tony's shameless too...::P:P:P
After twenty minutes, Emma was up again and Tony wrapped her up in a towel and dried her off. He kissed her head; her hair was still wet, dark and slicked down, but she looked up at him and smiled sleepily.
"This place looks like a war zone," Tony said, fighting to keep his voice normal as he watched Gibbs – still naked from the waist up – move around. He felt his pants grow tight at the sight.
"You don't think we'll be done by tomorrow?" Tony asked. He smirked, and added, "Or are you hoping I'll move in?"
"Go grab a shirt, DiNozzo," Gibbs growled.
...HA! HE DIDN'T ANSWER!:P:P:P:P:):):)
'Tony grinned, though he wasn't sure why. Gibbs lack of answer didn't mean anything...'
Tony smirked. Gibbs was having a reaction to him – Gibbs never avoided his gaze.
...aw...that's cute.:):):P But here's a question for a horny fangirl, is Gibbs still shirtless?:P:P:P:P
'Once in the kitchen, Gibbs handed Tony a cup of coffee. He was still shirtless and it was making Tony's mouth dry with the thoughts running wildly through his head...'
...Aw, they're torturing each other...their first activity as a couple...:P:P:P:P:P
He placed the coffee cup on the counter, not really noticing his own hands shaking.
Then he took two steps forward into Gibbs' personal space.
...Sorry, did I blow out your eardrums with my girly squealing?:P:P:P:P
When they pulled back they were both breathing hard and Tony could feel Gibbs' arousal against his thigh, just as he knew Gibbs could feel Tony's.
...*Cue Baby to Ruin Moment...*:P:P:P:P
But he said, "We should stop, or I won't be able to."
"Why stop?" Gibbs asked.
...Cuz he'll probably have to give someone their 2 AM feeding soon...?:P:P:P
| IGottaFindYou chapter 4 . 6/20/2012
He realized he'd nodded off when he felt warm hands take a hold of Emma. Instinctively, he held her tighter, eyes snapping open, moving to stand protectively.
...See? The paternal instincts are kickin' in!:):):):P
"Just thought you two might be more comfortable in bed."
...I was gonna say "giggity", but since there's a baby present, that probably just wouldn't be right...:P:P:P
"You know what's going on around you, don't you?" Tony said. "You're just pretending to not know, so that you get to observe instead. I'm sure you'll be great undercover in a few years."
He smelled coffee and sawdust. "You're turning into a voyeur, boss."
...Ooh...and you're getting more brazen with the flirting, Big D...:P:P:P
A low chuckle came as a response.
...I'm almost surprised Gibbs wasn't embarrassed at Tony's comment...:P:P:P
"Woman's size," Tony said. Emma looked up at him with big eyes. "You can't wear size six and a half yet, Miss Emma. It'd eat you up."
She grinned at him.
...Oh, that's so sweet...:):):P
The music was loud and obnoxious in the forensics lab and Tony held his hands over Emma's ears until he could turn it down.
...Aw...he cares about his girl's little ears...:):):P:P
"Aww," Abby said. "Did you keep Tony up all night, sweetie? I understand why – he's a hottie, and I'd keep him up all night too if had the chance.
"Abby!" Tony said, but he couldn't manage outrage.
...She's hitting on you, why would you be MAD?:P:P:P:P
Abby grinned. "So, did Gibbs keep you up all night too?"
"Abby," Tony said, this time in a more warning tone.
...OO-OOH!...And SHE KNOWS! Well, of course she does, it's Abby...:P:P:P:P
She trailed off and a wicked glint flashed in her eyes. Tony recognized it as harboring of trouble. No matter what Abby had thought of, it wouldn't be good for him – especially not when her fingers flew over her keyboard and the grin was so wide, it was a good thing she had ears to stop it from going all the way 'round her head.
...she's trying to see what it would look like if Tony and Gibbs could have a kid, isn't she?:P:P:P
"Abby, keep it down," Tony hissed.
"These walls are soundproof," Abby shrugged.
"The door isn't closed!" Tony said.
Tony's mouth dropped open. The photo on the right was Tony, the one on the left was—Gibbs.
"You agree, obviously," Tony said, talking normally as though his audience wasn't one squiggling, wailing baby. "Well, what else does my dear boss do? He glares at me. Doubt that'd work here. But it is a nice glare. Really. He's got nice eyes. They're very blue."
"Love, you need to breathe."
...He called her 'LOVE'...! SO SWEET!:):):):):)
| IGottaFindYou chapter 3 . 6/20/2012
He'd managed to get a semi-comfortable seating arrangement with her on his knee and the files on the desk. One arm was around Emma, the other one could turn the pages.
...Aw...he finally found a good system...:P:P:P
"DiNozzo, you're with me," Gibbs said as Ziva and McGee headed out.
"And Emma?" Tony asked.
"Is with you," Gibbs said.
...Baby makes three, after all...:P:P:P
"Yeah, I knew that." Under his breath, Tony added, "Unfortunately."
"Heard that, DiNozzo," Gibbs said.
...How can he POSSIBLY not like her yet?:P:P:P
"Coming, boss," he said at the impatient – and was that entertained, perhaps? – look on Gibbs' face.
...Oh Gibbs, ye hath no shame...:P:P:P:P
His tone did not invite to further conversation on the subject. Tony nodded and sat down in the car.
...Huh, I almost thought that Gibbs saying that he'd watch her meant that Tony wouldn't be...and Tony probably did, too...:P:P:P
He looked at the child. "Not for you, though. You're getting formula."
Emma emitted a high-pitched squeal.
...Huh...you'd think she'd want pizza...:P:P:P
"You have family," Gibbs said.
"My father disowned me—"
"Not that bastard," Gibbs growled. "Us. Me. Abby. McGee and Ziva, and Ducky."
...AW...! Gibbs is telling him that thee two of them are FAMILY...! SO SWEET!:):):)
She didn't start screaming; she simply reached out her hands towards his face and grabbed his nose, and then she managed to get a hold of his lip and pulled, hard.
...That's what I said!:P:P:P:P
'...and after a few seconds, she let go. She gave him a most innocent look.'
...Kinda sounds like what Ziva must've been like as a baby...:P:P:P:P
At least Tony had figured out the feeding thing. For some reason, Emma preferred to lie down with the bottle, so Tony placed her on the couch and held the bottle in place. She drank obediently.
...See, Tony? YOU'RE LEARNING!:):):P:P
Emma burped loudly, breaking some of the tension.
...Way to ruin the moment, kid.:P:P:P:P
"What about us?" Gibbs asked.
...US! HE SAID 'US'!:D:D:D
Tony ignored the way his heart flipped at how Gibbs asked about them as an 'us'.
...TONY NOTICED IT TOO!:P:P:P:):):)
"Emma doesn't think you're stupid," Gibbs said.
