"Daddy! Daddy!" Rosa said as she ran up to Jack as he walked in through the door.
"Hi sweetie!" Jack said picking Rosa up. "What did you and mommy do today?"
"We talked about colors for the Babies room and we felt the baby kick!"
"Really? That's great! What colors did you choose?" Jack asked, walking into the living room with Rosa still in his arms.
"Me and mommy said that purple's a nice color, but my room's purple, so then we said that orange and a pale pink look nice, so we are thinking about those colors, but mommy wanted to see if you liked those colors. So do you?" Rosa said out of breath.
"I think those two colors would look beautiful, tomorrow's my day off, would you like to get the paint then?"
"Can we mommy!?" Rosa asked.
"Of corse we can!" Rose said getting up to kiss Jack. "Hi sweetie."
"Rosa said that you guys felt the baby kick?"
"Yes! Come sit down, you might be able to feel it!" Rose said pulling Jack over to the couch. "Just put your hand here." Rose said, placing Jacks hand on her stomach. "Feel it?"
"Yea! I do feel it!" Jack said kissing Rose's stomach.
3 months later....
Jack and Rosa were packing away the baby's clothes in the drawers. The room had orange and pale pink walls, white furniture, a bright orange blanket for the crib, and had flowers and butterflies painted on the walls.
"So Rosa, do you think that the baby's going to be a boy or a girl?" Jack asked Rosa as she was putting clothes in the drawer.
"A boy ."
"You think so?"
"Yes. Because if it's a girl, I won't be your little girl anymore."
"Rosa, you will always, and I mean always, be daddy's little girl, I promise." Jack said as he picked Rosa up and kissed her forehead.
"I love you daddy." Rosa said hugging Jack.
"I love you too."
Rose was lying on the couch, rubbing her stomach. "Me, daddy, and sissy are so excited to... JACK!!!!! IT'S TIME!!!!"
"Sweetie, mommy's about to have her baby, I have to go help her and call the midwife, you stay here, alright? And don't worry, mommy's gonna be alright. I love you." Jack said as he kissed Rosa and ran out of the room, closing the door behind him.
"Coming!" he said as he ran into the living room.
"Where's Rosa?" Rose asked in pain.
"She's in the babys room, I told her you were having the baby and you were gonna be alright. I'll go call the midwife then get the towels." Jack said as he went to the phone. "Hello. My wife is in labour, 115 Chippewa Falls. Thank you." he hung up the phone and went into the living room. "Five to ten minutes, I'll go get the towels, and check on Rosa, you alright?"
"Yes. I'm fine, go check on Rosa." Rose said. Jack went into the closet, got all the towels, set them up, kissed Rose, and went into check on Rosa.
"Hi sweetie, you okay?" Jack asked as he entered the room.
"Yes daddy. How's mommy feeling?"
"She's okay, when the midwife gets here, do you want me to come in here with you?"
"Alright sweetie, I'll go out with mommy until the midwife comes then I'll come back in here. I love you." Jack said as he walked out of the room.
"Rosa wants me to be in there with her, so when the midwife gets here, I'm gonna go in with her, but if you need me, sing out for me, okay?" Jack said as he walked out into the living room.
"That's fine sweetie, I want Rosa to be okay as well, and if I need you, I promise, I'll sing out for you." there was a knock at the door.
"I'll go get it." Jack said as he walked out to get the door. "She's in there." he said waking the midwife into the living room. "Okay sweetie, I'm going in with Rosa, sing out if you need anything. I love you." Jack said kissing Rose.
"Hi sweetie. The midwife's here with mommy, she's going to be fine, now how about we finish packing away the baby's clothes?"
"Ya!" Rosa said giving Jack a kiss.
After 2 hours of contractions and a half hour of screaming, the midwife knocked on the door.
"Mr.Dawson. Would you like to see you daughter?"
"Come on Rosa, let's go see your baby sister!" Jack said carrying Rosa out to the living room.
"Say hi to daddy and sissy!" Rose said holding the baby in her arms. "Here Jack, take her. She looks like you." Rose said handing Jack the baby.
"Hi! How are you? Do you wanna see your sister? Rosa, come over here." Jack said, showing Rosa her sister.
"Mommy, Daddy, want are you gonna name her?"
Jack and Rose looked at each other and Rose finally spoke up "Well sweetie, we were thinking that we would let you name her."
"Really!" she had a long thought then finally spoke up "Can we name her April?"
"April sounds nice to me, you Jack?"
"Sounds good to me! April Dawson. I love it!"
"Jack, you remember Cora? From Titanic?" Rose asked.
"Why don't April's middle name be Cora? I mean, she was a beautiful girl and really sweet, and she loved you and you loved her."
"April Cora Dawson. That sounds really nice and I did love her, at that moment, she was like a daughter to me. But now I have three beautiful girls." he said kissing Rose.
"Come sit on the couch Rosa, say hi to April." Rose said, moving over a bit.
"Isn't she beautiful Rosa?"
"She is mommy, I love her."
"And me and daddy will always love the both of you." Rose said kissing Rosa, then kissing Jack, and finally kissing April Cora Dawson.
