"Hey kids come in."
Melissa invited us in, taking one of the baby seats in the process.
Zach and I walked into the family room where everyone was talking.
"Hey guys." I said.
My voice had come back the day before but I was still a little sore.
We all exchanged hugs and before everyone was seated.
"So Bex. What's so important that you had to call Alex and me from vacation, your parents from a mission, Rach and Joe from school, and everyone else from the office?" Abby asked.
"Well I have some important news." She slowly inhaled then exhaled. "But Cammie can go first."
I glared at Bex then looked at Zach and Grant.
"How about we go at the same time?" I suggested.
Bex nodded in agreement and we both slowly inhaled.
As if reading each other's minds we said together, "we're pregnant."
Everyone sat staring at us in silence. The babies must have sensed the change of atmosphere because they got quiet and sat up, to look around.
Nobody knew how to finish their sentences.
"Mmma. Mmma. Ma." Kaitlin said.
We all turned and looked at her. Tears of pride started welled up in my eyes.
"M-m-my baby. My baby is talking." I picked her up and spun her around while smothered her face in kisses.
When I put her down everyone was watching with tears in their eyes.
Grant was the first to speak. "Jonas called Bex but Zach and Nick said Kait."
"What do you mean by 'Jonas called Bex but Zach and Nick said Kait'?" I glared at Grant while Kait was trying to push herself up from my lap.
"It's nothing Cam. Just a little game." Grant rushed to say.
"A game involving my children and money no doubt. Hand it over." I held out my hand and Dillon and Grant gave me $600 each, Jonas have me 400, and Zach and Nick gave me $200.
"Oh. $2000 worth of shopping money. And I didn't even have to ask" I squealed.
"We can buy things for the babies." Bex added.
The adults had left and went into the kitchen while they were trying not to laugh.
"So how far along are you guys?" Macey asked.
"We're both 12 weeks." Bex answered.
Zach pulled me to sit in his lap but I ignored him.
"Please don't be mad at me Gallagher Girl." Zach whispered in my ear.
"You bet on our children." I hissed back at him.
"I'm sorry, okay?" He pulled me closer to him and placed a kiss lightly on my shoulder.
"It won't happen again. I promise."
"Stop it Zach." I tried to get out of his grip but he held me tighter.
"Forgive me and I'll stop." He left nips and licks on my neck but no one noticed.
I did my best to suppress the moans that threatened to escape. I was left with shallow breaths. When I was about to answer he stopped and raised an eyebrow at me.
"I forgive." I sighed in defeat and collapsed into him.
It wasn't long before I fell asleep in his lap.
I woke up in Dee Dee's bed with the triplets and Zach.
Kaitlin was drinking from her bottle by herself. Zach was changing Matt and Joe was sleeping next to me.
"Hey honey." I got up and pecked Zach on the lips. "What are we doing up here?"
"Well. You fell asleep so I brought you up. About 20 minutes ago Joe was knocked out. Kaitlin was hungry and Matt needed to be changed." He explained while finishing Matt.
I asked the thing that was bugging me. "How is Kaitlin eating by herself?"
"I was going to feed her but I left her bib in the bag. When I turned around she was feeding herself."
"You're on a roll today Baby." I picked Kaitlin up and kissed her forehead. "You wanna walk for mommy today?"
I helped her to her feet. She took a couple steps but fell over. I kissed her then put her to sleep beside Joe.
After Matt fell asleep Zach and I left a baby monitor in the room and went downstairs.
"Hey guys. How do you feel Cam?" Liz smiled at us as we walked down the stairs.
Liz, Jonas, Macey and Nick were watching iCarly.
"Hungry." Zach scooped me up and carried me down the rest of the way.
"I hear ya." Grant shouted from the kitchen.
"Shut up Grant. You're always hungry! My wife is pregnant." Zach kissed my stomach, over my shirt, and then set me down on the kitchen counter.
"What time is it?" I asked.
"7." Dad answered.
"Yes baby girl."
"How do you feel about me being pregnant again?"
He picked Bex up from Grants lap and sat her next to me.
"My two best students, and daughters, have both gotten pregnant before they are married. They are both 19. I am going to have 5 grandkids before I'm 50. But I love them just the same."
Bex and I kissed his cheek before Liz and Jonas came in.
"So dad, I was wondering." Liz closed her eyes and slowly inhaled. "Since my parents died could you walk me down the aisle?"
"Ohmygod Liz! Why didn't you tell us you are engaged?" Melissa squealed.
"I don't know." Liz pulled the ring from the necklace under her shirt. "But I don't want a big wedding. I want it to be with just you guys."
"Anything you want." Macey pulled her into a hug.
"Will you be my maid of honor?" Liz asked Macey.
"Really? Sure. Of course."
"Can I eat now?" I asked while laying my head on Bex's shoulder.
"Sure honey. What do you want?" Mom asked.
"A Baconator and apple pie and celery and peanut butter!" I exclaimed.
"That sounds good. Can I have some?" Bex asked.
"You just ate Babe."
"But I'm still hungry. If you won't do it for me, do it for the baby."
I used that a lot when I was pregnant with the triplets. So Bex must have picked it up.
"Fine Bex. I guess I have to go to Wendy's." He stopped just as he was leaving.
"Unless you can make a Baconator."
"No Grant! I want Wendy's! Your future niece or nephew wants a Wendy's Baconator so get the damn burger!" I screamed at him.
"Ok. Ok. I'm going." Grant ran his hand through his dirty blonde hair.
"Thank you." Bex and I smiled at him with angelic faces.
"Whatever. Its only 6 more months." He sighed and then left.
