…2 years later
"Mommy!" A little voice squealed as a pair of feet pattered on the floors of the Sloan residence.
"Yes, Dyl?" Lexie answered as her two-year-old son came to hug her legs. She looked down at the little tot affectionately and ruffled his dark brown hair.
"Sof and Zo being mean." He complained.
"Oh," Lexie said as she raised one of her eyebrows. "What'd they do?" Lexie asked as she knelt down so she was eye level with his twinkling blue eyes.
"Dey said I can't pway wit dem cuz I'm a boy." He huffed.
"Oh?," Lexie wondered as she raised one of her eyebrows. She took Dylan's hand and led him back outside where everyone else was. Today was Sofia's third birthday and the party was being hosted at Mark and Lexie's house. Of course the guests included: Callie, Arizona, Derek, Meredith, Zola, April and Alex—who were now newlyweds—a newly divorced Cristina and a few other hospital staff that had children. Lexie went over to where Sofia, Zola, and another little girl were sitting on the grass playing with dolls. "Hello girls." Lexie smiled.
"Hi Auntie!" Zola said happily.
"Hi Mom." Sofia grinned. While Callie was "Mami" and Arizona was "Mama", Lexie was "Mom". At first she protested and tried to get Sofia to call her Lexie but the child wouldn't have it any other way.
"Why won't you girls let Dyl play with you?" Lexie said as she sat down on the grass, Indian style.
"Cuz he's a boy." Sofia said.
"And we're girls." Zola added. The two were becoming best friends more and more each day and they always stuck up for each other.
"Ah," Lexie put her finger to her chin. "I see. Even though he's a boy, you're his sister and cousin and he loves playing with you guys so be nice," Lexie told them. "And just because he's a boy, doesn't mean he can't play with you." She told them.
"Otay." They both responded reluctantly. Lexie got up from the ground and went over to April who was curled up on one of the patio chaises.
"Having a good time?" Lexie asked as she stood over April.
"Definitely." April smiled.
"You want a drink? We've got beer, margaritas, daiquiris—"
"No thanks." April said quickly as she blushed.
"C'mon April, live a little!" Lexie said as she playfully hit April on the shoulder.
"I'm fine Lex—"
"I haven't seen you drink since your wedding." Lexie continued.
"I know but…I can't drink right now." April said in a hushed tone as she looked around to make sure nobody told her.
"Why not?" Lexie asked quizzically and then it dawned on her. "Oh my God April! Are you pregnant?"
"Shhhhh." April hissed.
"Sorry," Lexie mumbled. "I'm so happy for you!" Lexie beamed.
"Thanks." April responded humbly.
"Who else have you told?"
"Besides Alex, you're the first to know. We just did the test today but we still have to make an appointment."
"This is so wonderful," Lexie said happily. "I can plan the shower."
"What're you girls over here talking about?" Alex asked as he sat down at the end of the chaise April was curled up on.
"Congrats." Lexie said to Alex. Alex looked at Lexie's grin and April's blush and was able to put two and two together.
"Thanks," Alex said awkwardly. "You aren't gonna make a public announcement or anything, right?"
"Unlike you, I'm not a blabber mouth." Lexie said smugly.
"It's in the past." Alex told her, annoyed that she was bringing it up.
"I'm just joking Alex!" Lexie said before she waved him off and walked away from the couple. She never thought she'd see the day where Alex Karev was married and expecting a baby. She was happy for him though; he deserved happiness. She walked over to Meredith and Derek to see them flirting with each other shamelessly.
"You two do know this is a kids party, right?" Lexie giggled.
"Hey Lex," Meredith smiled brightly. "Didn't know you were standing there."
"Of course not," She rolled her eyes. "You were too busy flirting."
"We were not." Derek defended but he couldn't hold back the grin on his face while he was saying it.
"Uh huh," Lexie said before she took a swig of her beer. "So, how is Cristina doing?" Lexie asked as she looked across the yard.
"She's fine," Meredith shrugged her shoulders. "They tried to make it work but it just wasn't meant to be."
"I guess you're right." Lexie nodded before turning back to her sister and brother-in-law.
"She'll find someone who loves her for her." Meredith said.
"I hope so," Lexie smiled sadly. "She would be a great mother though." Lexie commented as she saw Cristina playing with Zola, Sofia, and Dylan.
"We're about to sing happy birthday." Arizona told the guests as Callie brought the birthday cake out of the house. Everyone gathered around and began to sing to Sofia, who looked on with delight because she was ecstatic to be the center of attention. She had been extremely jealous when Dylan came along and even still, Sofia and Dylan would start hitting each other every once in a while.
After they had cake and ice cream, the gifts were opened, and the children played for a little while longer. Guests started to depart and before Lexie and Mark knew it, the house was empty. Mark surveyed all of the damage in the backyard.
"Look at this place," Mark said as he shook his head. "It looks like a zoo." He grumbled.
"Callie said she would be over tomorrow morning to help clean it up." Lexie reminded him. She was sitting on the couch, rubbing small circles on Dylan's back.
"Yeah, I know," Mark said as he turned away from the patio door and took Lexie from Dylan's arms. "C'mon, let's put this little guy to sleep." Mark said softly. Lexie and Mark ascended the steps and made their way to Dylan's room. Mark and Lexie were able to strip him down to his onesie without waking him up. They put him in his crib and watched him for a few moments.
"He's getting big." Lexie sighed as she brushed some of his hair from his forehead.
"He's going to need a toddler bed soon."
"Yeah, I guess he is." Lexie smiled, not believing her son was already two.
"Seems like yesterday that he was born." Mark said fondly.
"I was just thinking the same thing," Lexie said before she kissed Dylan's forehead and walked out the room to head to their bedroom. Mark placed a kiss on his son's head before following Lexie to the bedroom. "April's pregnant." Lexie said as she began rummaging through the drawers to find some pajamas.
"Already?" Mark asked as she started taking his clothes off. "They've only been married for five months."
"I think it's about time," Lexie smirked as she put a Harvard t-shirt over her head. She put her hair in messy bun before climbing in the bed, quickly followed by Mark. They snuggled up like they did every night and faced each other. "What do you think about having another baby?" Lexie blurted out.
"Do you feel that we're ready?"
"Do you?" He asked as he stroked her cheek.
"Okay," Mark grinned at her. "Let's make a baby." Mark said sultrily before capturing her lips with his own.
"I love you Mark." Lexie said softly once they pulled back from each other.
"I love you too Lex." Mark said as he stared at her intently.
Many things happen for a reason in life; some are good and some are bad but there is always a reason behind it. It took a car accident, memory loss, and a prom to make Lexie Grey realize that she would always and forever be in love with Mark Sloan. After all, it does come back to the one you love.
