Summery: A little bundle of joy

Disclaimer: Sadly, I don't own anything. I know that the House episode Joy had to do with a baby, but I'm meaning the case 'Joy, there's a baby.'


Gus, Chief Vick, Lassiter and Henry sat impatiently in the waiting room the local Santa Barbara Hospital's maternity ward.

"When do you suppose they'll be done?" Lassiter complained for the tenth time since he arrived thirty minutes ago.

"It's a birth, not an oil change!" Henry growled, not even bothering to look up from the paper he was reading.

Lassiter scowled and went back to flipping through the 'Parents' magazine that was laying on his lap.


"Come on Jules! You can do it! Put a little power to it! Big 'G' little 'o' Go!" Shawn encouraged as Juliet

squeezed his hand until his fingertips were a dark purple.

Juliet whipped her head around to face her husband, a glare on her face that could freeze fire. "You're the

one that did this to me!" She screamed, then hissed. "I suggest that you shut up."

Shawn nodded, showing that he understood his wife's threat.

"One more push Mrs. Spencer!" The doctor yelled.

Juliet complied, letting out one more scream and squeezing Shawn's hand until it let out a resounding crack. There was a moment of silence before a cry filled the room. Juliet and Shawn looked at each other, huge grins on their faces.

"It's a girl!" The doctor announced, quickly wrapping the baby in a pink blanket and handing her to Juliet. "What's her name?" A nurse asked as she uncapped a marker.

"Isabella Michelle Spencer." Juliet whispered, a look of awe on her face as she took in the sight of her daughter.

"Hey there Bella!" Shawn cooed, as Bella grasped his finger with her little hand.

"That's a beautiful name." The nurse commented as she wrote it down on the birth certificate and left the room.


Gus saw the nurse leave Juliet's room with a smile on her face, and in a moment was on his feet. "Well?" He raised his eyebrows.

The nurse glanced over her shoulder and sighed. "Normally I'm not supposed to give out patient information, but in this caseā€¦" She trailed off. "It's a girl."

"A girl?" The nurse nodded. Gus grinned and walked back over to the group of people. "It's a girl!"


Minutes later everyone was in Juliet's room.

"She's beautiful!" Vick cooed as she held the little girl in her arms.

"You did good kid." Henry clapped a hand on Shawn's shoulder and gave Juliet a kiss on the cheek.

Lassiter nodded in agreement as Isabella was passed to him.

"Be careful with her Lassie!" Shawn warned, a goofy grin on his face. But luckily Lassiter ignored him.

Bella was passed to Gus. "So how does it feel? Being parents?"

Juliet and Shawn looked at each other for a moment. "I don't think I've been a mother long enough yet to tell you Gus. Right now I'm exhausted." She laughed. "What about you Shawn?"

He sighed dramatically. "I feel older." He put a hand on Juliet's shoulder and winced. "And I feel in pain! Where's the doctor? I think I need an x-ray!"
