"Sara" Grissom called to her.

"Yeah" she said getting off the floor. She was three months pregnant, and she had just been sick.

"Are you okay?" he asked.

"Yeah" she said coming out of the bathroom.

"Good." He picked her up and laid her on their bed.

"I'm so tired."

"I know you are, try and get some rest. I know it is hard, but will you?"

"Yes, will you stay with me?"

"Yes." He laid down next to her. They fell asleep cuddled up to each other.

Two hours later, they woke up.

"Hey" Grissom said.

"Hi" Sara said.

"Are you feeling better?"


"Are you hungry or anything?"



"I want to go back to sleep."

"Do you want me to stay with you?"

"Not unless you want to."

He stayed until she fell asleep. After she did, he got up and made him something to eat. He came back into their room and watched her sleep. He laid his head on her belly to listen to the baby. He heard nothing but he thought he felt something move a little bit. He couldn't wait until he saw the baby. He was so happy that he was becoming a father. He loved Sara very much, and he was happy that he was having a baby with her.

A couple of hours later Sara came into the living room and sat down next to Grissom. He was glad she got a lot of rest, but he was beginning to think she was never going to get up.

"Hey" he said.

"Hey" she said.

"You feel better now?"

"Yeah, a lot".

She loved Grissom. He was so over protective, but she knew that it was because he loved her. She couldn't wait to see their baby. Their baby, she still couldn't believe that she was having a baby by him. She loved him, and this was what she was waiting for, for all her life.


"I feel so fat" Sara said talking to Grissom. She was now five months pregnant.

"Well" he said, "You're not, you're beautiful".

"Whatever" she said.

She was standing in front of the mirror. She was rubbing her belly thoughtfully. She was thinking about the sex of the baby. The doctors said that he was going to be a boy. It was a sweet day. Grissom took the day off just to see the baby, and find out what he was going to be. He was so happy he was having a boy. He was so sweet to her. He bought her things, and he always put his hand, or head on her belly. He was a proud father. He took the picture of the baby to work. He showed everyone it, and then hung it up in his office. She thought he was so cute. He loved this time more than she did.

"You need to lie down for a while," he said to her.

"Yeah, yeah" she said.

"Come on, Sara, I'll rub your back."

"Okay, okay, lord I'm coming."

She did need to lie down. She was getting tired. He rubbed her back. She loved when he was sweet to her.

"I love you Gilbert Anthony Grissom."

"I love you too Sara Alexis Sidle." She laughed at him as she started fall asleep.


"Sara" Grissom said to his bride to be.

"Yeah" she said.

"We need to practice this," he said. They were practicing their plan for when she went into labor.

"I know," she said. She was now eight months, and she was tired. She didn't want to do this, but he made her do it.

"Gil I'm tired and I want to eat. You know what to do so you can lead me when it's time."


She gave him that 'Please don't make me do this' look. He bought it.

"Okay" he said with a sigh.

"Thank you."

She ate and went to sleep. Grissom knew that they should practice, but she didn't want to, so he didn't make her. She was always sleeping and eating, but he thought she was so adorable. He couldn't wait to see his son. He was going to be a dad. He was so proud. Next month. He was so happy.


"GIL!" she yelled in pain.

"What, I'm going as fast as I can, Sara, just hold on," he said. She was going into labor, and the baby was coming fast.

"I can't hold on!" she yelled.

He was pulling into the parking lot. He jumped out of the car, and got Sara out. When they were settled into their room, the baby was almost out.

"Come on Sara" her doctor said, "Push"

She screamed.

"That's it."

"Come Sara, our baby boy is almost here" Grissom said to her, holding her hand.

"One more big push" the doctor said.

She gave it her all. When she heard her son cry for the first time, she knew that it was all worth it. Grissom was crying a little bit too. The doctor let Grissom cut the cord, and they cleaned him off, and finally handed him to Sara.

"He is so beautiful" she said.

"I know, just like his mom," Grissom said.

"I love you."

"I love you to, what are we going to name him?"

"Deacon Jake Grissom" she said.

"Deacon Jake" he said, "That is perfect. Grissom went out into the waiting room to tell everyone about the baby. Catherine, Warrick, Nick, Brass, Greg, Doc Robbins, Grissom's mother Mary, and Sara's best friend Tarissa were waiting.

"Hey" Nick said, "So what is the name?"

"Deacon Jake Grissom" Grissom said with pride. He signed it to his mother.

"Congratulations" Warrick said.

"Yeah you and Sara are going to make great parents" Greg said.

Everyone shook his hand and gave him a hug. He told his mother everything, and went back to Sara and Deacon.

"Hey" she said.

"How much does he weigh?"

"Six pounds, seven ounces."

"He is so beautiful." He went over and kissed Sara and his son.

"I love you so much. I love Deacon to, thank you for giving me him."

"No, thank you."

"Do you remember when I asked you to stay with me and you said you would?"


"Well I'm glad you did because we wouldn't have Deacon." Grissom laughed and kissed her.


One day later, they let Sara and Deacon go home. She was glad. All she did was hold Deacon, and kiss him. She would always look at him when he slept.

"Sara" Grissom said.

"Yes" she said, she was watching Deacon sleep again.

"You need your rest. Come on Deacon is sleeping, and you will get tired eventually."

"I know, but I love him, he is so gorgeous."

"Yes he is, but you need to rest so we can take care of him. Don't worry; I'll make sure that he is okay."


"I promise."

She finally got away from Deacon, and went to sleep. After Grissom made sure Sara was asleep and resting, he went into his son's room. He was sleeping peacefully. He loved his son so much. He leaned down and kissed him.

"Deacon" he said to him, "If you ever need anything just say the word and I'll give whatever it is to you, I love you."

Grissom left Deacon's room and went in to watch Sara sleep. She was so beautiful just like their son. He knew he was blessed, and he really was.
