baby when she was a baby


As promised my cute little Nessian domestic fic. To hold you over until I finish chapter 10 of Shape of you =)

Nesta was beyond exhausted. Ever since they had come home from the healer their son had been a good baby. He had been an easy baby. On a schedule to eat and sleep around the same time every day. He barely cried, he smiled at her. He loved her and his father. He was a good baby, an easy baby. Everyone was obsessed with how easy he was. So different from Elain and Azriel’s little one.

But then something changed.

When he hit the 3 month mark and his father was called to check on the camps yet again. Cassian went without a second thought, even though he promised Nesta he would be here to help her in the first few months of their son’s life. Nesta hadn’t realized it until he was gone, but their son was more attached to his father than anyone else. They had bonded and now he only wanted Cassian.

He had been gone for longer than a few days. And for the two weeks Kaden wouldn’t stop crying. No matter how hard she tried Nesta couldn’t settle him. She was running on less than 3 hours of sleep.

She had tried everything. Nursing him. Changing him. Bouncing him. She sang to him. She rocked him. She bathed him, she rubbing his wings softly the way Cassian did. She had done everything her tired mind could think of.

And yet he was still crying.

“Please,” she sighed, “please Kaden stop crying. Mommy is tired.”

boss’ memo : here’s part one ! i hope you enjoy ! :0

  • maria’s only pokemon happens to be a gardevoir ! her name is anna and she’s extremely protective of maria,, gardevoir are known for being prepared to give their lives for their trainers at a moment’s notice, and anna is constantly on edge due to her powerful need to protect maria,, she doesn’t talk, of course, but she does understand when maria talks to her. she’s very intelligent and adores maria with all her heart
    • maria works at the equivalent of old friends senior dogs sanctuary but for pokemon
    • anna is a contest champion! she’s adorned with many ribbons, and maria would actually like to become a pokemon coordinator someday, as she enjoys dressing her pokemon up and performing with them!
  • james (madison) owns several baby pokemon,, most predominantly is his poliwag, who he just calls “baby”! baby tends to follow james around, and isn’t particularly powerful (none of james’ pokemon really are),, james isn’t the most skilled at naming his pokemon
    • if you challenge james, he’ll likely get ready to fight you. like, with his actual hands. he doesn’t like seeing his pokemon get injured,, especially because they’re all so little
      • other than baby pokemon, james has a quite powerful luxray named arielle, which was given to him by thomas (if he has a non-baby pokemon, it’s likely that thomas gave them to him)
    • it’s rumored that he owns the hoothoot that follows alex around, but he’s never really mentioned them….
    • he owns an oddish, named greens! if any of james’ pokemon absolutely need to fight, it’s most likely going to be greens, as she knows moonblast and is unafraid to use it if she feels you’re a threat to james,, she enjoys long walks on the beach and digging in the dirt
    • james works at the pokemon daycare, and as you may have guessed, cares for the baby pokemon
  • thomas says he’s picky with the pokemon he chooses, but he actually isn’t. he often ends up catching and raising a pokemon to it’s highest evolution, and then will usually give it to james, as he knows james will take care of it. his first pokemon was a ninetails named ambroise,, ambroise is temperamental, and thomas adopted him from a shelter when he was a vulpix. they’re notoriously high-maintenance, but thomas was up for the challenge
    • while attempting to catch a jigglypuff, thomas ended up catching lou the zoroark, who happened to be disguised as a jigglypuff at the time,, he didn’t mind, really, as zoroarks are rarer, and lou seems to be the only thing capable of even remotely calming down ambroise,, they might be boyfriends? thomas is unsure
    • thomas also owns a lopunny named narcisse,, judging by the name, one can assume narcisse tends to act like a spoiled prince, and they would be correct. narcisse is known for “playfully” kicking anyone who upsets him, and enjoys collecting shiny things,, he is capable of mega evolution, and is highly dangerous during it
    • thomas loves pampering his pokemon and honestly doesn’t even mind one bit that they’re high-maintenance
  • angelica is a big fan of bug and fairy type pokemon–which are pokemon often looked down at. her primary pokemon is a very aggressive scoliopede named jelly. jelly enjoys winning above all, and is a horrifying force of nature on the battlefield, as she doesn’t give up until she’s sure her opponent is Finished. she’s been known to survive countless fire attacks, and sweep entire parties without an issue,, angelica could not be prouder.
    • she also owns a vespiquen named mary, who happens to be rather lazy in her behavior and used to being doted on,, though, she knows angelica isn’t going to baby her, so she tries to get this attention from her fellow pokemon (it sometimes works). mary pulls her own weight and has been responsible for many last minute victories or sweeps !! she always comes out last, so she can clean up whatever mess the pokemon prior to her have created using some combination of fury cutter, heal order, hone claws, and defend order !
      • generally angelica is not someone who is fun to battle due to this,,
    • angelica also owns a red florges that she caught as a flabebe with her siblings–her name is adenium, or addi, for short,, her use of wish makes her incredibly annoying to face off against, added in with the fact that angelica has gotten in the habit of occasionally teaching addi toxic (this is sometimes switched with protect, which is also frustrating),, addi is quite close to angelica, being the first one she caught
    • though, if you believed you’d be able to burn through angelica’s team, she’d likely give you a bit of pause with her primarina, marsha!! she’s the trump card, if you will !
    • angelica is the second-to-last member of the elite four that you would face!
    • whenever angelica defeats her opponents, she’ll often remark that they were beaten by a bug / fairy, and rather than feel ashamed, should feel honored
      • …. (she’s right)
    • she has a non-combative pokemon: a togekiss named lucas. he’s mostly there to look nice, and also for transport. he’s actually level 2. you’ll often find him out of his pokeball and hovering near to angelica, as he loves her!
  • eliza is rather unique in that she specializes in double or triple battles–whether she be working alone or with a partner. she owns a blue florges named aconitum, which happens to be the first pokemon she ever caught, which she did so with her siblings!! aconitum often ends up sweeping her foes, especially after being aided by helping hand (which most of her pokemon have)
    • she owns a cinccino named cappuccino, and he’s usually who she has out with aconitum ! true to how his species is, he’s quite organized !! he often helps eliza clean up after a long day, and he never minds it at all !
    • eliza also owns a charizard which she jokingly named angelica ii–so she just calls her angie. her charizard is her main mode of transportation, and is also quite tranquil. she is skilled at ending fights rather than starting them
    • eliza used to be a member of the elite four, but she’s currently adventuring with peggy
  • peggy is a pokemon ranger ! her partner pokemon is a mimikyu named ragdoll. she only owns two pokemon as of now. ragdoll is rather powerful, and he’s extremely close with peggy, and often found resting on her shoulder or hair
    • peggy’s nearly completed her training in the local ranger base as an intern, and will be transferred to almia, soon!
      • (she graduated the ranger school with honors)
    • ragdoll has several disguises, of which include :
      • standard pikachu
      • sylveon
      • whimsicott
      • pachirisu
      • minccino
    • peggy wants to catch a ditto before she gets transferred, and eliza wants to help her out with that–hence they travel together!
    • peggy also owns a yellow florges that she caught as a flabebe with her siblings–the florges is named laburnum, or labby for short ! she’s the more powerful pokemon between her and ragdoll, and peggy only uses her when she gets Serious

I just found the saddest thing, guys.
I found a litter of five bunny kits and they had all passed away. They’re so small it looks like they were born during this past week’s snow storm. Like, I’ve never teared up while doing my hobby before but by golly I did when I picked up these babies. The momma had kicked them out of her burrow and she was actually sitting fairly closely to me watching her babies.

I’m so sorry bunny mama but I swear I’ll take care of these little darlings for you.

Choice (RWBY Snippet)

Luna Rose-Schnee was an adorable baby girl. She had the same pale complexion and white hair as her mom but the same silver eyes as her mommy. Naturally, both Weiss and Ruby were convinced that their daughter was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

And, naturally, they were both competitive when it came to winning their daughter’s favour.

“Come on, Luna,” Ruby said. “Walk to mommy! You can do it! Walk to mommy!”

“No,” Weiss said. “Walk to mom! Just walk to mom!”

Luna looked between her two parents and rose unsteadily to her feet. Time seem to pause and then, slowly, jerkily, the baby girl took her first step.

“She’s walking!” Weiss cried. “She’s walking to me!”

“No, she’s walking to me!” Ruby retorted. “Come on, Luna. You can do it! Mommy believes in you!”

“Mom believes in you more!”

Luna stumbled her way toward her parents and…

Fell into Ruby’s waiting arms.

“Yes!” Ruby cried, rising to her feet and lifting Luna up into the air. “I knew you’d walk to me!” She grinned at Weiss. “See that, Weiss? Our daughter likes me more!”

Weiss raised one eyebrow and pointed. “Are you sure?”

“What do you mean? Oh…” Ruby trailed off. 

In the midst of her celebrating, Luna had taken the opportunity to grab a cookie out of her pocket. The baby girl munched on it happily before checking in Ruby’s pocket to see if she could get another one.

“Well…” Ruby said. “It turns out she was walking to the cookies… I wonder why that happened?”

Weiss shook her head in disbelief. “Ruby, I think we both know where she got her cookie-devouring tendencies from.” 

24 weeks!!!

I’ve “rounded out” significantly in the past week or so. Baby girl is getting so strong, and as painful as it is when she moves and kicks, I just get so happy and overwhelmed considering where we were 12 weeks ago (long story, ask if you want). I’m completely exhausted, fell asleep at 6:30 last night and could not for the life of me wake up until this morning. Thinking I might order her baby shower invitations soon, cause I like to be prepared ahead, and I already have the date picked out.

Almost in my third trimester, which is scary, cause I feel like I’m no where near prepared, but I’m so excited to get closer to meeting her❤

How does Jules reacts when she finds out she's pregnant? And since she never really wanted kids, did she ever consider abortion?

Below is a snippet from something I really, really can’t post anytime soon… with parts redacted, covering what Jules says when she tells her husband she’s pregnant and he asks how she feels about it. 

“Terrified,” she says immediately. “Really, really… terrified. And surprised. And… and… and I keep picturing you holding him. Or her. And I just… I don’t know. I didn’t want this. We didn’t plan this and I wouldn’t have chosen it, but I think maybe… I think it could be a good thing. Maybe it could be a great thing.”

She doesn’t care for babies, has never wanted to be a mom, but the idea of a baby with <name redacted>… well, that’s a little different. She’s still wary, still not thrilled with the impact a child will have on their lives, but <name redacted> will be a fantastic father and she’s surprised to find a part of her really does want to give him that experience.

“Really,” she promises him. “I’m scared as hell, but I know you’re right here with me and that makes it all a whole lot better.”

Because of the situation, she does not consider abortion. Had she gotten pregnant when she was… say dating Miles or messing around with Tyler… yes, she would have. I think she would have terminated the pregnancy and I don’t think she would have ever regretted it. With her husband, it’s different. He very much wanted kids and gave up any plans for them because Jules didn’t want any. He’d rather have her with no kids than have kids without her. She wouldn’t have tried to have a baby, but the idea of him as a father to their child is a little different once she finds she’s already pregnant. If it were anyone else - anyone else - I don’t think she’d have had a child. 


What can a female character do without being criticized mercilessly? [insp.]

The @sdzsafaripark‘s newest baby giraffe is turning 1 month old, and already she’s turning out to be an independent girl. When not hanging out with her mom, Shani, and the rest of the herd, this free-spirited girl can be found lounging under a tree all by herself. She loves to explore, and seems to have great curiosity about the Caravan Safari trucks that roam her habitat. Her keepers say the giraffe herd has fully accepted her as part of the family. Watch the full video.

Parenting, from what I have observed, is either this, or this ⇧. And not much in between XD
