2 years and 3 months later……
"Ok I need just one more big push JJ." Dr. Williams said with a smile.
"I can't believe I let you talk me into this again!" JJ screamed in pain as she began to push. Emily decided it was best to leave the fact that this was actually JJ's idea alone for the time being.
"You can do it sweetie." Emily said as she let JJ squeeze her hand. JJ gave a last effort push and suddenly the sounds of a crying baby filled the room.
"Congratulations Moms! It's a girl!" Dr. Williams beamed as she wrapped the baby in a pink hospital issue blanket and handed her to the nurse. "Okay, I know that you are tired but I'm going to need to you get ready and push again. JJ groaned at just the thought of this.
"This is all your fault Emily Elizabeth Prentiss!" JJ hissed through gritted teeth.
"I know sweetie, but I am so proud of you." Emily smiled as she looked back and forth between her daughter and her wife. "Just another few minutes and we will have both of our little girls."
"You are so lucky that I LOVE YOU!!" JJ screamed as another contraction ripped through her body.
"Okay JJ push!" Dr. Williams said as she prepared for the second baby to be born.
Emily stood there in amazement as she watched JJ deliver their second baby girl. She couldn't believe how lucky she was and how wonderful things had turned out. JJ officially moved back in the day after Emily received her six month sober coin and since then things had been perfect. On Emily's one year sober anniversary she and JJ renewed their vows in front of their family and friends. Then on Matthew's first birthday JJ suggested that they start the process of having another baby. Emily was more than happy to agree, seeing how she missed most of the first pregnancy. However, both women were shocked when ten months later they discovered JJ was pregnant with twins.
"Ok lets check the baby's heart beat." Dr. Williams stated as she put the pushed around on JJ's stomach and until she found the beat. "Well I guess that explains the high hormone levels." Dr. Williams smiled.
"What's wrong? High hormone levels? You never said anything about her levels being high." Emily said as she began to panic.
"Everything is fine." Dr. Williams flipped the speakers on and the sound of the heart beat filled the room. Emily stood there in awe of her child's heart beat; however JJ immediately noticed a difference.
"Why does it
sound funny? It doesn't sound like it did with Matthew." Emily
hated that she didn't know that, it just reminded her of all the
things she missed. "Are you sure there is nothing wrong?"
"I'm positive there is nothing wrong. What you are hearing is two heart beats instead of one." Dr. Williams set back and waited for the new information to sink in.
"Wait, what??" JJ asked confused. "Why would you be able to hear my… oh my god!"
"What?" Emily asked still confused.
"Are you serious?" JJ asked and Dr. Williams nodded.
"Would someone tell me what the HELL is going on?" Emily all but yelled.
"Congratulation Emily, you and JJ are having twins!" Dr. Williams said with a slight laugh just seconds before Emily hit the floor.
The sound of another baby screaming brought Emily out of her day dream. Emily watched as the nurse took the new baby over to the table and began getting her measurements.
"Oh my god JJ they are beautiful. They're perfect!" Emily smiled as she leaned over and kissed JJ lightly on the cheek. A few seconds later the nurse handed one baby to JJ and the other to Emily. Both women were lost in the moment, just staring into their daughter's eyes.
"Would you like me to send your team in?" Dr. Williams asked.
"Yes please. I know they are dying to meet them." Emily smiled.
Not ten minutes later the team was pushing their way through the door to JJ's room. Before Emily could react her daughter had been plucked from her arms by a very happy and joyous Garcia.
"Oh my, she is beautiful." Garcia gushed over her god daughter.
"They both are." Morgan added sitting on the edge of JJ's bed. "You did good girl." He smiled as he leaned over and kissed JJ's forehead.
"Now will you please tell us their names? I'm dying here." Garcia groaned. Garcia had been upset, no more like pissed, when JJ and Emily told everyone that they were not going to tell everyone the names of the twins until after they were born. Emily had wanted it to be a surprise; but Garcia was just down right insulted.
"What do you mean you aren't going to tell us the babies' names?" Garcia demanded to know.
"Now honey that is their right." Morgan tried to calm down his wife.
"YOU," Garcia pointed at her husband, "stay out of this!" Morgan held up his hands in surrender. After a year of marriage he knew better than to argue when she was like this. "I'm waiting!" Garcia demanded.
"We want it to be a surprise for everyone." Emily said suddenly afraid that her children might grow up without a mother. Emily had never seen Garcia this angry. Emily moved so that she was standing behind JJ. She knew Garcia wouldn't hurt her.
"Coward." JJ teased as Emily pushed her towards Garcia. "Now listen Garcia, we already told you we are having twins and we told you that they are both girls; why do their names matter?"
"Because I want to KNOW!" Garcia shouted. "I know everything and this is just unacceptable."
"Oh for heaven sakes Garcia, you can go three more months and find out like everyone else."
"Why can't you just tell me? I won't tell anyone." Garcia said batting her eye lashes at her best friend.
"Honey, I love you like a sister, but that's a load of crap and you know it. If we tell you then it will be all over the FBI by noon. Hell you'll have it Facebook before we even finish the conversation." Garcia opened her mouth to defend herself but realized that sadly JJ was right.
"Well, you Mrs. Morgan are holding Andrea Jareau Prentiss." Emily stated proudly as she wrapped her arm around Mrs. Andrews; the women who had become a surrogate mother to every member of the team. Mrs. Andrews who was holding 2 and ½ year old Matthew smiled and nodded her appreciation. "And JJ is holding Erin Elizabeth Prentiss." Emily said looking up at Hotch who looked shocked.
"Did you just say… I mean … I don't know what to say." Hotch stuttered through his words. "Thank you, that means a lot. I'm truly honored."
"Well we figured that we should name them after two of the most important people in our lives." Emily smiled as Garcia placed Andrea back in her arms.
"So does this mean the next time you have a boy you will name him after me?" Morgan asked as he ran his finger down Erin's cheek.
"Morgan you had better be glad that I am holding my daughter right now, because if I wasn't I would kick your ass. I can guarantee you we," JJ said pointing back and forth between herself and Emily, "are not having any more children. I am done. Not that I don't love my children, but I am done!" JJ stated firmly.
"Well Emily could always carry the next one." Morgan said matter of factly.
"Garcia do you mind, I have my hands full." Emily said turning to Garcia who more than gladly walked over and slapped her husband upside the head.
"HEY! What was that for?" Morgan asked rubbing the back of his head while everyone else laughed.
"Seriously Morgan have you met my wife?" JJ asked still laughing. "Do you honestly see her pregnant?" Morgan gave Emily a good once over and laughed.
"I guess not."
Later that night Emily sat there holding a sleeping Erin in her arms while JJ fed Andrea; the team had long since gone, while Morgan and Garcia had taken Matthew with them.
"They really are beautiful, aren't they?" JJ asked as Andrea continued to feed.
"Gorgeous." Emily replied looking down at Erin. "I still can't believe that we have two little girls. I mean I thought our lives were pretty great with Matthew but now, it's just… it's perfect." Emily smiled looking of over at JJ.
"I can't believe how close I came to losing all of this." Emily said quietly as she felt a tear roll down her cheek. "I'm still afraid this is all a dream and that I'm going to wake up and find out that it's not true."
"Honey come here." JJ motioned for Emily to join her on the bed. "It's not a dream. This is real. I love you; your son loves and now your daughters love you." JJ said as wiped away Emily's tears with her free hand. "And none of us are going anywhere."
"It's just I can't believe how stupid I was."
"You were hurting. We all do stupid things when we are hurting. I can't imagine what you went through in that compound and I have no idea how I would have reacted if the situation had been reversed. I would like to sit here and say that I would have come to you and we would have dealt with it together, but I can't say that for certain. You made some bad choices, plain and simple; but I can't say that I wouldn't have done the same. All you can do now is learn from those mistakes."
"Yeah, but I hate that I hurt you. Seeing everything you had to go through with this pregnancy made me realize what all I missed and what all you went through by yourself with Matthew."
"Honey, you have got to forgive yourself for what happened. I have." JJ said a she grabbed Emily's free hand. "I forgave you a long time ago; you need to do the same."
"I love you so much. You know that right?"
"I know you do and I have no worries that what happened in the past will happen again, you know why?" Emily shook her head. "Because of Matthew, Andrea and Erin; you love your children too much to ever fall into that again."
"And you, don't forget you." Emily smiled. "I don't want to lose you Jennifer."
"And you never will." JJ said with a tear in her eye. She looked down at her bracelet that Emily had given her before Matthew was born. However, now the single sapphire was joined by two small rubies. It was even more beautiful than it was when she first gave it to her.
"You know when I bought you that, I never thought I would get to add two more stones to it." Emily smiled as she saw what JJ was looking at.
"Me either; but here we are." JJ smiled as she looked back at her daughter in her arms. "It's been a long road but so worth the journey."
"Well there is several months in there I could have done with out." Emily frowned. "And I'm not just talking about the rape, I'm talking about all the crap I did afterwards."
"Well I wouldn't; those months, as bad as they were, made you who you are today. You are stronger for having made it though."
"Well one thing is for sure. It made me realize what I had and what I almost lost." Emily said softly as she ran her finger down her daughter's cheek. "I don't think I can ever thank you enough for what you have done for me, what you have given me."
"I could say the same thing about you." JJ smiled. "I never truly thought of myself as having a family and now I have three beautiful children and a wonderful wife."
"I will second that." Emily said with a slight chuckle. "Our little family is complete." Emily said as she carefully leaned over and gave JJ a simple, but passionate kiss.
