Hello all! Sorry about the wait on this last and final chapter! My first two weeks of second semester have definetly been homework filled. But I guess it's all paying off since I got an 83 on my biology quiz on friday :) It's actually really cool. My teacher puts up our marks on the class portal under secret numbers that only we know. Like, we had our quiz on friday during period for. And my school gets out a 2:30, by 4:00 our marks were up! I got the second hightest mark in my class and I tied with my friend Chris :p
Anywho, THANK YOU for all the 44 reviews I got! You are all amazing! Maybe this time we can beat that? That would be pretty cool :D

"Mommy! Daddy! Wake up!" Paige exclaimed before jumping on top of us. Edward had his arms wrapped around me and I buried my head into his chest.
"Hey princess," Edward smiled and settled Paige down between us.
It has been two weeks since Edward returned home from Afghanistan. I was thanking God that after last nights… activities… we had gotten dressed in case Paige woke us up early, which she did. I looked t the alarm clock and saw that it was only 5:45 on a Tuesday morning. Paige started Kindergarten today.
"Paige why are you up so early?" I asked brushing her hair out her face.
"She's asleep love," Edward chuckled quietly and kissed me.
"Now now Mr. Cullen we can't have a repeat of last night with our daughter in the room," I giggled and kissed him again.
"I'll go put her back in her own room then," Edward smiled.
"No, you won't. She missed you so much when you were gone, she deserves to spend all the time in the world with you," I sighed, caressing his face in my hand.
"Words can't express how much I love you both and missed you both," Edward kissed me and pulled us in closer to his body.
"I know Edward, I know," I whispered as we stared into each other's eyes. We did that for about forty five minutes. We had to get Paige ready for school.
"Princess, it's time to wake up," I heard Edward whisper as I walked out of the bathroom from my shower.
"School!" she exclaimed.
"Yep, you ready for kindergarten?" Edward smiled at her but I saw the tears in his voice. His little girl was growing up to fast for his liking.
"Yeah!" she smiled and stood up on the bed running across to jump into my arms.
"Go brush your teeth and I'll help you put on your outfit," I said as I set her down on the floor.
"Ok!" she exclaimed before running from the room.
I walked over to the bed and climbed on top of Edward.
"You ok?" I asked, tracing the patters underneath his eyes.
"She's growing up to fast," he grumbled.
I laughed before responding, "She's only five. You have thirteen more years before she moves out."
"That's not long enough," he sighed.
"Go get showered Edward, you don't want to stand at the bus stop in your pajamas do you?" I giggled and kissed him.
"Of course not. I can't embarrass my daughter on her first day of kindergarten," he chuckled and rolled us over so he could climb off the bed.
"Of course not," I laughed and hoped off the bed too. After putting on a pair on dark jeans and a dark blue blouse I made my way to Paige's room.
"Do you know what you're going to wear yet?" I smiled at her. She was standing in front of her closet.
"No," she crossed her arms and grumbled.
"How about those new clothes the Alice bought you?" I asked her.
"Oh yeah!" she exclaimed and opened up the two bags sitting on floor of her closet. Alice had bought her a bunch of new clothes for her birthday. After about 10 minutes we decided on a cute little blue dress. I helped her pull it over her head and I brushed out her hair.
"Ready?" I smiled at her.
"Yup!" she exclaimed and ran downstairs.
I followed her down and made her toast for breakfast. At seven o'clock Edward came downstairs. He poured him self some coffee and joined us at the table. Paige's bus came at 7:30 to get her.
We had to walk down the street to get to the bus stop. Since we lived outside of Forks there was bus service but we did have to walk to the beginning of the small subdivision for her to be picked up. There were only 10 kids that lived in this neighborhood and went to the elementary school.
It was a cloudy morning but no sign of rain but I put an umbrella in her backpack anyway. Edward held Paige's hand as we walked down the street. I had her backpack over my shoulder. It held her lunch kit, pencil crayons, and other school supplies.
When we got to the bus stop I saw many of our neighbors waiting with their kids for the bus. I started talking to Angela who was bringing her daughter Ally for her first day at kindergarten. Edward and Ben started up conversation as well as Paige and Ally.
The bus pulled up and I saw Edward tense. I put her Camp Rock backpack on Paige and she smiled up at me.
"You have fun today," I bent down to her level and kissed her cheek.
"I will!" she exclaimed.
"Have fun princess," Edward whispered.
"I will Daddy," Paige smiled and hugged Edward.
"Don't let the boys kiss you," he said straight face and all.
"Daddy if I did that I would be cheating," she crossed her arms across her chest.
"Yes, yes, I forgot, bye princess, we'll be here to pick you up at 3," he hugged her again.
She ran onto the bus and sat beside Ally. Edward wrapped an arm around my waist as we watched the bus roll out of the subdivision towards Forks.
Edward and I held hands as we walked the 10 minutes in silence back to our house. I took this time to think about how to break the news to him. Last night I took a pregnancy test while he and Paige were watching a movie. It turned out positive but I hadn't told Edward yet. I did however call Carlisle and book an appointment with him today. I stopped at Edward's car to grab my log book from work and a couple of CD's. I went into the house and heard Edward talking on the phone.
"Are you sure she is happy? Was she smiling? Did she look sad?" Edward asked into the phone. I rolled my eyes and walked up behind Edward, resting my head on top of his while he talked on the phone. He had obviously called my mom at the school.
After he hung up he pushed the chair out and spun me onto his lap.
"Overprotective much?" I raised my eyebrow at him.
"I love her too much," he smiled and kissed me.
"I do too," I whispered, "Edward can I ask you something?"
"Anything love," he said rubbing my back.
"Take a drive with me," I smiled at him.
"Where?" he asked.
"It's a surprise," I grinned.
"Ok," he smiled at me and we stood up. I climbed into the driver's side of the Volvo and we took off down the road towards the hospital. Ten minutes later I pulled up into the hospital parking lot, earning a questionable look from Edward.
"I have an appointment," I smiled at him. He got out of the car and opened the door for me.
"What kind of appointment?" he asked.
I didn't respond by speaking. Instead, I took his hands and placed them on my stomach. His eyes went wide which made me laugh.
"Your…" he couldn't even finish his sentence.
I nodded my head smiling.
"No way!" he yelled and spun me around.
"YES!" I yelled smiling.
"Bella," he breathed, "You have no idea how happy that makes me," he pressed his lips to mine.
"I'm so excited," I admitted.
"When did you take the test?" Edward asked as we walked hand in hand to the hospital.
"Last night when you and Paige were watching that movie," I smiled.
"Sneaky," he chuckled. We walked right down the hall to Carlisle's office. Carlisle was excited to say the least.
An hour later we were finished at the hospital. I was in fact pregnant, only about one and a half weeks though. I had a full pelvic exam and all that jazz. Carlisle wrote me a prescription for prenatal vitamins and we were off. We bid our goodbyes and headed over to the shop. Since Edward had some downtime before he headed back to school. Edward was going to school to become a doctor now. That way if he was ever deployed again he would be working as a doctor and not in the fighting line.
We opened up shop for the first time since Edward came home. The day was busy. A lot of people came in to see Edward. Needless to say, he was happy to see everyone. At 2:30 we closed shop so we would get back home in time to pick up Paige from the bus stop.
"I hope she's smiling when she comes off the bus," I said to Edward as we walked toward the stop.
"She better be," he said as he wrapped an arm around my waist, letting his hand rest on my stomach.
I smiled and kissed his cheek.
"What was that for?" he asked smiling.
"Nothing," I smiled.
Once we got to the stop you could see the bus coming down the street. I said hi to Angela who was just as anxious as Edward was to see his little girl.
Paige climbed off the bus after Ally with a big smile on her face.
"Daddy!" she exclaimed.
"Hi princess," Edward's face lit up as he picked her up, "How was school?"
"It was soooo much fun!" she smiled as we walked back to the house, "My teacher is so nice! And I saw Nanny! I met a bunch of new friends! Oh! And I got to play on the big kid's playground! We coloured pictures and we played games and read books!"
Paige went on and on, telling us every detail of her day.
It wasn't until supper and I was taking my pre natal vitamins that Paige found out I was pregnant.
We were sitting at the dinner table and I set my pill bottle on the table next to my plate.
"Mommy what are those?" she pointed to the bottle.
"Their pills, don't touch them, ok sweetie?" I said to her.
"Ok Mommy, but are you sick?" she asked in concern.
"No honey, don't worry," I smiled.
"Then why are you taking them?" she turned her head to the side.
"Because Mommy is going to have a baby," Edward smiled at her.
"Really?!" she exclaimed, "Like Josh?"
"Yep," I grinned.
"Cool!" she said before turning back to her supper.
After supper we were sitting in the family room watching NCIS. Paige was playing at her dollhouse in the corner. Edward had pulled up my shirt and spent all of the commercial breaks staring at it.
That night after we put Paige to bed Edward and I climbed into our own bed.
"I love you," I whispered as Edward spooned me.
"I love you both so much," he kissed my neck and rubbed his hand over my stomach.
