Chapter 16

Once Sydney and the baby were moved into the maternity ward, Randy made his way out to the waiting room. Everyone was exhausted, but they weren't going anywhere until the baby was born. Randy had taken some pictures on his cell phone and camera before heading out there.

"How is Sydney and the baby doing?" Mark asked as soon as he saw Randy.

"We have a healthy 7lbs 9ozs 22 inches long, baby boy. Both of them are doing great." Randy answered.

"Congratulations, son." Bob stated as everyone exchanged hugs and handshakes.

"Thank you." Randy responded as he showed them pictures of the baby.

"Do we get to know what our grandson's name is now?" Elaine asked.

"Of course mom. His name is Ryan Keith Orton." Randy answered.

After everyone left the hospital to get some sleep, Randy headed back to Sydney's room. She had just finished feeding Ryan and laid him in his bed. She still couldn't believe that their son was finally here. Randy spent a half hour with them, before heading home to get some sleep. Sydney was up every 3 hours to feed and change Ryan and she didn't mind at all.

Sydney and Ryan were released from the hospital two days later. Randy had spent the last 2 days making sure that Ryan's room was ready for him to come home. Everyone gathered at Randy's house to welcome the newest member of their families. Ryan was passed around to each grandparent, aunt and uncle. Randy took pictures of Ryan with everyone there.

Later that night after everyone had left for the night. Sydney put Ryan in his bassinette and got ready for bed herself. She was exhausted and she knew that in just a few hours Ryan would be up and wanting to eat and be changed.

"He is perfect." Randy stated as he watched his son sleep.

"Yes he is. And he will be up in 3 hours again. So I suggest we get some much needed sleep." Sydney responded as she drifted off.

Over the next few weeks, Randy and Sydney took turns getting up with Ryan. They were also planning their wedding and getting everything all set for that. Randy and Sydney decided on a summer wedding and set their wedding date for July 17th 2010.

The weeks leading up to the wedding were busy with making sure everyone had their dresses and tuxes. Flowers were picked up the morning of the wedding and everything was all set to go at 2pm. Randy took his spot at the alter with John as his best man and Nathan and Gunner as ushers. Sydney had Stephanie as her maid of honor and Becky and Ted's wife Kristen as her brides maids. Gracie was their flower girl and Randy's cousin Marcus was their ring barer.

"Are you all set to marry Randy?" Mark asked.

"Yes, dad. I am. I love him and he loves me." Sydney answered.

Becky and Gunner walked out first, then Nathan and Kristen followed by Stephanie. Gracie was their flower girl and Randy's youngest cousin, Marcus was their ring bearer. The doors closed before Sydney and her dad took their spots. As soon as the wedding march started, the doors opened and there stood Randy at the front of the alter with John next to him. Mark walked Sydney down the aisle towards Randy and she couldn't help but smile.

"Who gives this woman to this man?" the pastor asked.

"My family and I do." Mark answered as he gave her hand to Randy and took his seat next to Sarah.

"Randal, do you take Sydney for your lawfully wedded wife? Will you love, honor and cherish her from this day forward, forsaking all others, keeping only unto her for as long as you both shall live?" the pastor asked.

"I do." Randy answered.

"Sydney, do you take Randal for your lawfully wedded husband? Will you love, honor and cherish him from this day forward, forsaking all others, keeping only unto him for as long as you both shall live?" the pastor asked.

"I do." Sydney answered.

"Randal, please repeat after me." the pastor stated. "I, Randal Keith Orton, take you Sydney Marie Calaway, be my lawfully wedded wife."

"I, Randal Keith Orton, take you Sydney Marie Calaway, to be my lawfully wedded wife." Randy repeated while looking into her eyes.

"My constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward." the pastor stated.

"My constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward." Randy repeated.

"In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad and in joy as well as in sorrow." the pastor stated.

"In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad and in joy as well as in sorrow." Randy repeated.

"I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live." the pastor stated.

"I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live." Randy repeated.

There was a short pause in between them stating their vows. Sydney and Randy had picked a song to play in between. Randy winked at her as he smiled. Both Sydney and Randy couldn't wait to be announced as husband and wife.

"Sydney, please repeat after me." the pastor stated. "I, Sydney Marie Calaway, take you Randal Keith Orton, to be my lawfully wedded husband."

"I, Sydney Marie Calaway, take you Randal Keith Orton, to be my lawfully wedded husband." Sydney repeated while looking into Randy's eyes.

"My constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward." the pastor stated.

"My constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward." she repeated.

"In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad and in joy as well as in sorrow." the pastor stated.

"In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad and in joy as well as in sorrow." Sydney repeated.

"I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live." the pastor stated.

"I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live." Sydney repeated.

The pastor then asked for the rings and Marcus handed him the rings. Sydney couldn't help but smile at her very soon-to-be-husband.

"May this ring be blessed so he who gives it and she who wears it abide in peace and continue in love until life's end." the pastor stated as he held up Sydney's wedding band before giving it to Randy.

"With this ring, I thee wed. Wear it as a symbol of our love and commitment." Randy stated as he slid the ring on her finger.

"May this ring be blessed so she who gives it and he who wears it abide in peace and continue in love until life's end." the pastor stayed as he held up Randy's wedding band before giving it to Sydney.

"With this ring, I thee wed. Wear it as a symbol of our love and commitment." Sydney stated as she slid the ring on his finger.

"May this couple be prepared to continue to give, be able to forgive and experience more and more joy with each passing day and each passing year. Randal and Sydney are now beginning their married life together and have consented to live together in wedlock and have declared before God and everyone

by giving and receiving of rings. By the powers vested in me by God and the state of Missouri, I now pronounce them Husband and Wife." the pastor stated. "You may kiss the bride."

Randy lifted Sydney's veil and kissed her. Stephanie handed the bouquet back to Sydney just before they walked up the aisle as husband and wife. Sydney couldn't stop smiling and neither could Randy.

"Thank you for wanting to spend the rest of your life with me." Randy stated.

"You're welcome. And thank you for the same and for our handsome son." Sydney responded.

"I should be thanking you for giving him to me." Randy stated.

Sydney just smiled at her husband as they stood outside the reception hall. They waited as patiently as possible for the DJ to announce them into the reception.

"I would like to announce, Mr. and Mrs. Randal Orton." the DJ stated as the doors opened.

Randy and Sydney made their way to their table only stopping long enough to greet their parents. Once they were in their seats, the speeches began. Mark's speech caused just about everyone to have tears in their eyes. John's speech made everyone laugh. And Stephanie's speech was sweet and emotional at the same time.

By the end of the night, everyone was exhausted. Bob and Elaine were staying at Randy and Sydney's house with Ryan so that they could go on their honeymoon and relax. Randy and Sydney headed to their hotel room and placed the Do Not Disturb sign on the door. Sydney was happy that she finally had her prince charming and her fairy tale life.
