Naya watched as her wife of 2 years cradled their new born son in her arms. She smiled as Heather sighed in relief, in relief that she had finally got their son to sleep. The past few days had been tough for the couple but every day was getting better. They only had to get up twice in the night to see to their son however the strain was getting to Heather.
Quietly, Naya walked in front of Heather, gently taking their son from her arms. Naya was dumbfounded when she saw her son for the first time; nothing was more beautiful. He looked exactly like Heather: blue eyes and tiny strands of blonde hair. Naya kissed the top of his head before laying him down in the moses basket placed beside the couples bed.
"Sleep tight" She whispered and slowly closed the door, leaving it slightly a jar to they would be able to hear any noises.
As Naya walked back to the sofa, she noticed Heather had fallen asleep. Naya couldn't help but smile.
"I love you." She whispered taking a place beside Heather. Naya slid her arm around her wife's waist and naturally, Heather rest her head on Naya's shoulder. Naya hummed quietly as she watched her exhausted wife sleep.
After what felt like minutes but turned out to be an hour, Naya's phone vibrated loudly on the coffee table, causing Heather to shoot up. Naya laughed quietly and rubbed her hands up and down Heather's arm.
"It's just my phone, he's okay." Heather once again sighed and laid her head back against the sofa.
"Another visitor?" Heather mumbled as Naya leaned foward to open the text. The past few days, they had many visitors, mostly family and close friends. Naya smiled as she read the text to herself. She then turned to look at Heather.
"You're like this visitor, I promise." Heather raised an eyebrow as she looked at her wife, trying to figure out who would be over.
"Do I have to change out of my sweats?" Naya laughed and shook her head, turning on the baby monitor placed on the coffee table.
"Then i'll like them." Heather smiled and leaned against her wife. After a few minutes of cuddling in silence, they heard a few light knocks at the front door. Naya smiled at the speed of her friend and slowly removed her arms from around her wife and headed towards the door. As soon as she opened the door she pressed a finger against the diva's lips to keep her from shouting her excitement.
"He's sleeping." Naya said as Lea engulfed her into a hug. She laughed and returned the hug before pulling away and closing the door.
"Where's Heather?" Lea asked as she looked around. She noticed many balloons and cards along with half empty baby bottles.
"I'm here." Heather said as she walked up behind Naya. Naya smiled as she felt her wife snake her arms around her waist and press a soft kiss to her shoulder, causing the Latina to shudder.
"I definitely like this visitor." Heather chuckled and moved from her wife and over to Lea, who just like she did to Naya, pulled her into a hug. An extremely tight hug. Heather laughed patted the smaller girls back.
"Congrats you too!" Lea said as she pulled back. Just as Heather opened her mouth, a quiet cry came from the baby monitor. Heather frowned slightly and leaned against the wall.
"I'll go get him." Naya tip-toed and pressed a kiss to the blonde's temples before heading off to their bedroom.
"And like, Nay nearly fainted!" Lea and Heather burst out into a fit of laughs as Naya walked to the living room, cradling their son in her arms.
"I'd appreciate if you didn't mention that again," Naya pouted and looked towards her wife. Lea's eyes looked towards the baby in Naya's arms, then towards Naya. "In my defense, you were squeezing my hand pretty tight." Naya shot back and Heather rolled her eyes.
"Can I hold him?" Lea pleaded, sticking her bottom lip out. Naya smiled as she leaned down to slowly pass her son into Lea's arms. "Hey little guy." Lea said softly. Naya dropped down on the sofa beside Heather and leaned against her.
"You and i are gonna get on like a house on fire!" Lea smiled and kissed his forehead softly. The couple laughed as they watched their friend, Heather's eyes slowly closing.
"He truly is a blessing to you guys." Naya nodded slowly and smiled at her wife who was on the brink of sleep.
"Although he's a got set of lungs on him, we've never been happier." Heather giggled softly and nodded in agreement at Naya's statement.
"We love him more than anything." Lea smiled and watched as the tiny boy in her arms drifted off to sleep.
"I should get going," Lea stood up and walked over to Naya who held her arms out for the baby. "But i'll be back tomorrow to spend some quality time with baby Rivera!" Lea kissed the top of his head once more before heading towards the door.
"Thank's for stopping by." Heather mumbled against Naya's hair. Naya was about to stand up and walk Lea to the door, but was stopped by Heather tightening her arms around the Latina's waist. Naya sent Lea an apologetic look and Lea laughed.
"If you need any help, just call." Lea called out before walking out the door. Naya turned back to her wife and smiled.
"I love you." Naya whispered watching a smile stretch out on Heather's face.
"I love you too, mamacita." Naya giggled at the nickname and turned to face their son, starstruck on the beauty of their family.
