10 months that’s how old their little girl was. Rachel could hardly believe how fast Caroline had grown, some nights while she watched the baby sleep she wished she would grow up slowly so she could enjoy her as a baby much more. In this last four months lost had change, her and Noah had been adapting better to her schedules, they were both doing great at school and at work, Rachel’s boss had started to let her audition to other productions but was still set on having her as a lead on his secret project, but he had still not told her what show was that since it was not yet completed in negotiations. Kurt, Blaine, Santana and Danny were happy and they still help take care of Caroline and doted on her. The baby had even made a friend at the NYADA daycare center and it turned out the baby’s mother was a dancer that had become good friend with Rachel and Puck.
December was going to be hectic for them, not only was their first holiday together with Caroline but also their families were coming to celebrate Hanukkah with them, and since this year the last day of Hanukkah coincided with Christmas Eve, they decided that their friends would join them for dinner and they will all celebrate Chrismukkah and watch Caroline tear into her presents (which Noah and Rachel were sure will be an exaggerate amount with both sets of grandparents and godparents there), so Rachel had been glad when her boss told her she could take a break since December 15th - 27th and from 30th to January 4th. On top of having to prepare for all the cooking for the holidays, Rachel and Noah were now in alert since Caroline began crawling weeks ago and was lately trying her hardest to stand up on her own holding on to anything she could grab on, and apparently the Christmas Tree has a magnet for the baby, so much that the couple decided to take off all the lights from the bottom part of it, since the second day after they put it on Caroline had crawled her way to it and held on to the branch and tried to get up, luckily Noah was there to get her before she pulled the lights. They had been careful and picked spheres and others ornaments that were made of cloth or soft materials that Caroline could grab safely. Today was the sixth day of Hanukkah, the first 5 days had been amazing, the daddies Berry and Maria and Sarah had been all over Caroline playing with her, taking her out to the city and buying her things. Caroline’s babbles were getting more clear and she seemed to have complete conversations with everyone in her own language, but she learned to bark like a dog and muu like a cow so the grandparents were over the moon.
