Okay, so between my computer crashing and my husband needing emergency surgery, this chapter is way overdo. I'm very, very sorry.
Okay, so here's the latest chapter. I think that this is where this story is going to end. It seems to be the perfect ending to the story. I might write a sequel to this one.
Alex stood in front of the window to the nursery where her twin sons were. They were so much smaller than their sister had been. When she'd seen the incubators, she'd been afraid that there was something wrong with them. When they were born however, she realized that they were absolutely , but perfectly healthy.
She walked back to the room and just settled in when she heard Bobby and Evelyn coming in. She smiled at Evelyn and held out her hand to her. She walked forward slowly and climbed into bed with her mom. She looked at Alex's stomach and then asked, "Where are my baby brothers?"
Alex smiled and kissed the top of her daughter's head. Then she told her, "The nurse just took them. They are checking them over and making sure that there isn't anything wrong with them."
Evelyn seemed to accept that and snuggled in close to her. They sat like that for some time before they heard a knock on the door. Alex looked up and saw the nurse pushing the bassinet into the room. Evelyn sat up and watched as they got closer.
Once they got closer, she leaned over and whispered, "Hi babies."
Bobby had been worried that Evelyn might have a hard time accepting her brothers. After all, she'd been an only child for some time and he was worried that she might resent the new little intruders. He watched as she stuck out her hand and softly stroked one of their cheeks. Then he watched as she put her hand near a tiny one. The baby grabbed onto it tightly. Evelyn looked at her mom in shock and said, "He's strong mommy!"
Alex nodded and whispered, "You were just like that when you were his age."
She looked at her parents with wide eyes and whispered, "Really?"
Bobby smiled and nodded, "Yep. You were very strong for such a tiny little baby."
Evelyn turned her attention from her parents and back to her baby brothers. It was clear that she was already in love with them. Bobby smiled and asked, "Would you like to hold them?"
"Can I? I don't want to hurt them daddy."
Alex smiled and whispered, "Your daddy and I will be right here the entire time. You won't hurt them sweetie."
Evelyn seemed to weight this for a few moments. Finally, she nodded and told them, "I want to hold them."
Bobby smiled and picked up the bigger of the two boys and Alex helped to position her arms. Once he was satisfied that she had a good grip on him, Bobby moved away. He took out his cell phone and snapped a few pictures of his children together. Evelyn looked at her father and whispered, "I love you baby."
Then she kissed him on the forehead and smiled brightly. Bobby had to pry him out of her arms. After she held her other brother, she snuggled up against her mom and closed her eyes. Before she drifted off to sleep, she asked her mom, "What are their names mommy?"
It was then that they heard a commotion coming from outside the room and soon the room was filled with their family and friends. Liz finally asked, "Yeah, that's a very, very good question. What are their names Alex?"
Alex looked at Bobby and he nodded. They'd discussed what they were going to name their sons for months. Ever since they had found out that they were having twins and that they were going to be boys. It had taken a lot of compromise, but they had finally decided on two perfect names. Names that fit their sons perfectly.
Bobby picked up the twin that was born first and smiled at the group. He finally told them, "Alex, Evelyn and I would like you to meet our first son, Hayden Alexander Goren."
Their friends and family oohed at their sons name. Liz smiled and said, "That's perfect."
Alex smiled and Bobby handed the baby to her father. He then turned to their other son and picked him up. Then he said, "We would also like for you to meet our second son. His name is, Hunter Joshua Goren."
Liz looked at her brother in law and asked, "You didn't want him to have your middle name?"
Bobby shook his head, "No."
He then handed the baby to Liz. The people that were gathered stayed for awhile longer and then they cleared out of the room. Alex's dad picked up Evelyn and carried her out of the hospital room. She hadn't even moved when he picked her up. She was obviously exhausted.
It was then that the nurses came to get the babies, leaving Bobby and Alex alone. Bobby leaned down and kissed her softly. Then he whispered, "I love you. So, so much."
Alex closed her eyes and everything was right with her world. Her baby boys were absolutely perfect. The only negative in this situation was that she wouldn't be able to have any more children. She had started bleeding and the only way that it was able to be stopped was the perform a hysterectomy. However, she felt that their family was complete.
She closed her eyes and drifted off to sleep. Secure in the knowledge that her babies made their lives complete...
