A/N: Ok, the not-so-long awaited sequel to Domestic Doctor is here! I have to admit, there is no way on Gallifrey that this will be written even half as fast as Domestic Doctor; we were all extremely fortunate that the plot bunnies decided to grace me with constant ideas. I have a few ideas, but nowhere near enough to get this story written fast...
Where we left off:
The Doctor- now stranded in Pete's World- works at Torchwood in the alien artefacts department, occasionally doubling up as a Field Mission Team Leader. He is known as Doctor Theta Lungbarrow. He and Rose are friends with fellow Torchwood operatives Daniel Mays, Libby Cox, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones. The Doctor and Rose are married, and when we left off, Rose had just given birth to baby Amelia Rose Lungbarrow.
"And that, right there, is Orion's belt. It's an asterism in the constellation of Orion and consists of three bright stars named Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka. Alnitak is approximately 800 light years away from Earth and, taking into consideration ultraviolet radiation, which the human eye cannot see, Alnitak is 100,000 times more luminous than the Sun. Alnilam, on the other hand, is approximately 1340 light years away from earth and shines with magnitude 1.70. Considering ultraviolet light Alnilam is 375,000 times more luminous than the Sun.Mintaka is 915 light years away and shines with magnitude 2.21. Mintaka is 90,000 times more luminous than the Sun. Mintaka is a double star. Both stars orbit around each other every 5.73 days. I took your mother there, once. Lovely place." The Doctor announced to Amelia, pointing as he spoke about each star in turn.
He was lying on his back next to Amelia in the back garden of his and Rose's house and was giving little Amelia a lesson on several star constellations.
"You know," Rose piped up from the back door, startling the Doctor "Amelia's too young to understand what you're teaching her. She's probably wondering what her silly daddy's going on about."
The Doctor stood up and hoisted three month old Amelia into his arms.
"Don't be silly, Rose. She's a Time Tot. She knows exactly what her 'silly daddy' as you called me, is talking about!" the Doctor replied indignantly, walking over to his wife.
"Doctor, Time Tot or not, I doubt Amelia is understanding all this stuff about constellations. She hasn't even started on solid foods yet; I think she's a little way off studying Astrology-"
"Astronomy" the Doctor corrected.
Rose rolled her eyes.
"As I was saying, I think she's got a while to go before she begins studying Astronomy." Rose finished.
Amelia was babbling away in her father's arms, and the Doctor's eyes widened in shock at what Amelia said.
"Rose! Did you hear that?" the Doctor demanded. Then, he held Amelia at arms' length, watching her intently. "Go on, Amelia. Say it again, say it for Daddy."
Amelia just stared at her father with wide brown eyes full of innocence, tufts of sandy brown hair sticking out from underneath her little woolly hat that was protecting her head against the bitter cold of the December evening.
"Doctor, I don't know what you're expecting her to do, but please just let me put her down to bed; I'd quite fancy a few hours of sleep tonight without being interrupted by this little one. Whatever you want her to do; can we just wait till tomorrow?" Rose asked wearily.
"But I swear, Rose, she spoke! She said mama!" the Doctor insisted.
"Doctor, sweetheart, she was probably just babbling. She's too young to be speaking. And anyway, she wouldn't connect that with me, at least, not yet." Rose told her husband gently.
The Doctor was about to protest when Amelia started squirming and kicking. Then she turned her head to look at Rose, and, quite clearly announced "Mama!"
Rose stared at her daughter in shock, as the Doctor laughed manically. However, he soon stopped laughing when Amelia turned to him and called him "Dada."
Both Rose and the Doctor simply stood, staring at their daughter for several minutes before the Doctor handed Amelia to Rose.
"Yeah, I think it is time for Amelia to go to bed." He murmured, still in shock.
Rose just smiled and shook her head as she took her daughter into her arms.
"You know, Doctor, I think I've given up all hopes of my family being normal." Rose told him, walking back into the house, the Doctor following her.
"Oh, you should know by now, Rose Lungbarrow; you can domesticate me as much as you want, but life with me will never be normal." The Doctor replied, grinning.
A/N 2: Ok, that's chapter 1/prologue. Thanks to Amelia being born in September, I have a feeling the next chapter or two (or three, or...well, you get the hint) will revolve around Amelia's first Christmas...This could get interesting... And please, remember to read and review!
