Chapter 39 Visiting grandpa.
The first thing I hear the next morning is Maysliee gurgling. I open my eyes to see Maysilee's big blue eyes. I obviously stayed on my side the whole night.
"Hi baby." I say and kiss Maysilee's forehead. I look over and see Peeta isn't beside me; he must have woken up and gone downstairs. "Let's go find daddy." I say. I stand up and then carefully pick Maysliee up and carefully make my way downstairs. When I get into the kitchen I see I was right in thinking Peeta woke up early and went downstairs, because he is standing at the stove making pancakes.
"Morning daddy." I say walking to him and kissing him.
"Morning mommy, morning Maysilee." Peeta says kissing me back and then kissing Maysliee on the forehead. "Finnick rang me." Peeta says.
"Oh really how or Annie and the babies?" I ask.
"A lot better, the blood isn't clotting just as slow, it is clotting a bit faster, and they should be home tomorrow." Peeta says.
"Oh that's great!" I say. Peeta nods.
"Do you think you and Maysliee will be ok here if I go down to the bakery for a little while, just to get some cakes and bread and stuff?" Peeta asks.
"Yeah of course, I was planning on going over to Haymitch's with Maysliee today anyway." I say.
"Ok, is there anything else you need from town?" Peeta asks.
"No I don't think so." I say. Peeta feeds Maysliee while I eat and then go upstairs to change. When I come back down I see Peeta has dressed Maysliee in one of the outfits Cinna made for her, It's a pink baby grow with 'Mommy's Mockingjay.' Written on the front. Peeta also has an adorable matching pink hat on Maysliee's head. She's sitting in her carrier on the table and Peeta is standing beside her. I smile.
"Oh she looks so cute!" I say walking over to them.
"I know." Peeta says smiling.
"Wanna go see grandpa, Maysliee?" I coo to my daughter. She just gurgles as usual. "I'll take that as a yes." I say.
"See you later." Peeta says kissing me.
"Bye." I say. Peeta kisses Maysliee on the forehead. I pick up the carrier and make my way across to Haymitch's. The light's are on so I know he is in. When I walk in Haymitch is in the kitchen.
"Maysliee wanted to see her grandpa." I tell him, setting her on the table and taking her out of the carrier.
"Well I wanted to see my Maysliee." Haymitch says smiling. I hand Maysliee to him and he cradles her to his chest. "Well hello again my little sweetheart." He coo's to her. "Did you hear anymore from Annie and Finn since last night?" Haymitch asks.
"Yeah Finn rang Peeta this morning, he said that the blood is clotting faster but not fast enough but it's progress and they should hopefully be home by tomorrow." I say.
"Good, I've never seen Finn so anxious, expect for maybe when Annie was in labour with Ronan." Haymitch says.
"Yeah, he's so protective when it comes to Ronan the twins and Annie." I say.
"He's a great father." Haymitch says.
"He really is." I say. A while later Haymitch and I are sitting in the living room, I'm cradling Maysliee. We hear the door open and then Effie comes in.
"Oh hey Katniss, hello Maysliee." Effie says, cooing to Maysliee at the end.
"Hey." I say. She goes over and sits beside Haymitch and kisses him.
"Oh god, my 2 day old daughter- who is also your granddaughter- does not need to see that." I say covering Maysilee's eyes.
"I'm sure she see's you and Peeta kissing all the time." Effie says. I smile unable to think of a good retort. A while later I head home, needing to feed Maysliee. When I get home Peeta is there.
"Hey." I say smiling.
"Hey, how are my two girls?" Peeta asks taking Maysliee out of her carrier.
"We're good, how are you?" I ask.
"Good, are we giving Maysliee her first bath tonight?" Peeta asks.
"Yeah, we need to get it over with." I say. Peeta nods.
"I'm only home, I put a bottle in the microwave for Maysliee, I was going to put in the fridge so you could give it to her when you came home." Peeta says.
"Oh thanks." I say. That night about an hour before we go to bed we get ready to give Maysliee her first bath. Peeta undresses her as I fill the baby bath.
"Ok Peeta, bring her over here whenever you're ready." I say putting the bath on the table.
"Ok." Peeta says. He walks over to us and gently lowers Maysliee into the tub. At first she sits there quietly as Peeta holds her but when I put the soapy sponge on her skin she shrieks. It breaks my heart hearing my little girl screaming like this, so I do my best to wash her as quick as I can. Peeta Coo's to her trying to keep her calm.
"Ok I'm finished, take her out." I tell Peeta a few minutes later. Peeta nods and takes her out and wraps her in the towel and her cries cease to whimpers. Peeta and I take her upstairs and dry her and dress her for bed. I sit down on the bed with Maysliee in my arms and feed her a bottle. She looks up at me with her big blue eyes and places her hand on top of mine. I smile as I gaze down at my daughters beautiful face. I honestly don't know how I didn't want kids. It's so hard to believe Maysliee is here, it feels like only yesterday I found out I was pregnant with her. I feel tears of joy running down my face as I look at Maysliee, I love her so much.
"Kat, why are you crying?" Peeta asks, sitting beside me.
"Because I'm so happy. I'm so happy Peeta, my life is amazing, I have Haymitch, Effie, Cinna, Portia, Finnick, Annie, Johanna my mom and most importantly I have you Peeta. I have you and I have Maysliee and I couldn't love the two of you more. I would die without you Peeta, for the past 8 years you've made me happy, you've made me sad, you've made me mad, you've made me believe in myself, you've made me fall in love with you, and most amazingly you've made me laugh! You've been my friend, You've been my ally, you've been my boyfriend, you've been my fiancé, you've been my husband and you've been the father of my daughter. But most of all you've been my friend!" I say. Peeta smiles and kisses me.
"Katniss, I love you so much, and I love Maysliee just as much, and my life wouldn't be worth living if I didn't have the both of you, I've loved you since I was 5 years old and I still love you. I've loved you for 18 years and I'll go to my grave loving you." Peeta says. I smile and kiss him as he wipes away my tears. He wraps his arms around me and pulls me closer. I rest my head on his shoulder. Peeta takes Maysilee's tiny hand in his and she wraps her hand around his finger. I put her empty bottle on the bedside table and rest my head back on Peeta's shoulder. This is how we fall asleep that night. Maysliee in my arms and me in Peeta's arms. We fall asleep as a family, the Mellark Family.
Ok sorry it's so bad! I'm running out of ideas! So next update of 174 reviews! Oh and I just wanna say, today I walked into the house after going to the doctors and my brother goes "How long did he give you?" I didn't get it for ages but then I was like "Oh! How long to live! HA!"
