Notes: as I always say, I’m so sorry for taking so much
time into writing. I’m currently doing my uni exams so it’s hard to find the
time and I had a busy Xmas break as well, but I promise all of your requests
will be done asap.
A day after you gave birth you went sent home, after being told by ten
different doctors that you were ok. Of course, that was on Tony. He wanted to
make sure you were completely alright to leave and just one opinion wasn’t enough.
It was quite funny at the beginning but by the time he had the fourth doctor
called, it stopped being funny and it started being annoying.
Luckily, you had talked some sense into his head and you were finally
going back to the Tower. He had habilitated a whole floor for you two since he didn’t
want any of the Avengers to be disturbed due to “baby’s noises” like he liked
to say. You were completely ok with it. It was like living on your own but with
your best friends a couple of floors above your head.
“I told the guys to wait until tomorrow to come and visit”, Tony said
while you were still in the car. “I imagined you wanted some time to…relax”, he
You smiled at him. He had changed so much since you got pregnant it was
hard to recognise him. Of course he was still the same sarcastic narcissist you
loved, but he had grown up somehow. Fatherhood had changed him. Now he had
something he had always wanted: a family. And he had already been the first
father ever even before little Rose came to the world.
“I do. Thanks, Tony”, you smiled at him before turning to look at the
sleeping baby once again.
It was magnetic. You just couldn’t stop looking at her. It didn’t matter
that she spent most of her time asleep. She was just beautiful and hypnotising
A few minutes later, Happy drove into the tower garage and parked in Tony’s
private parking where he kept all his overpriced cars. He quickly left the car
and went around it to open the door and take the portable chair where Rose was sleeping.
You couldn’t help smiling as you saw his face looking down at his first
daughter. He looked so happy, so calmed, so relaxed for the first time since
you met him all those years ago.
“She’s beautiful”, he mumbled.
“She really is” you nodded standing next to him.
“I think she looks like you”, he said looking at you with a small smile.
“Sorry Tony, as much as I love you and as sweet as that is…she’s being
alive for less than 48 hours. She looks like an old potato”, you shrugged.
Rose did was beautiful but it didn’t matter. She was a new born and that
was how new born looked like. Of course yours was the most beautiful ever but
still a potato.
“Have you really just called our daughter an old potato?” Tony asked
You chuckled and took the chair from his hand and walked to the
elevator. You really were tired after those 15 hours of giving birth and you
needed a bath or to lie down for a while since you knew you wouldn’t have much
peace during the next few months.
“Don’t you think she’s beautiful?” Tony asked following you into the
elevator. The question made you laugh.
“I don’t think she’s beautiful, Tony. I know she is”, you replied looking at him. “That doesn’t change the
facts. A beautiful potato indeed but a potato”, you shrugged.
“She’s not a potato…” he mumbled crossing his arms which made you laugh.
Neither of you did much during the rest of the day. Tony almost forced
you to take that bath as he assured you he would watch Rose. You did it reluctantly.
You knew he would take care of her but you just didn’t want to be away from her
for even a second, as stupid as it sounded. But the thought of a warm bubble
bath was too appealing so you decided to listen to your husband.
It was a hard day. Not having the nurses to help you was harder than you
thought. You knew how to change diapers since you had changed your niece’s many
times; you knew how to fed her since the nurses had told you how and Rose knew
how to do it as long as you held her; you knew how to bath her. You knew how to
do everything. And you had to do everything.
By the time you both hit the bed that night, you were too exhausted to
even talk and you fell asleep with Tony’s arms around you immediately although
you knew you would have to wake up in less than 3 hours for her feeding but you
were going to take as much time as you could to sleep.
When you woke up an hour and a half later, you were surprised when you
found the other side of the bed empty. With a frown, you sat up and looked
around. The door was opened and there was a light coming from the nursery. Confused
you woke up and followed the light as you rubbed your eyes trying to see clear.
What you had never expected was to find Tony holding Rose while he was
sitting on the rocking chair, moving back and forth and humming something
between his teeth. It was the most adorable picture you could have ever dreamed
of. Slowly, you walked in, letting Tony know you were there. He looked up and
smiled at you before looking back down at her with such a loving look it
brought tears to your eyes.
“What are you doing here?” You asked in a whisper.
“I couldn’t sleep…I needed to see her”, he told you. “Then I came in and
I was watching her when she started crying a little so I took her and sat here.
Now I’m not able to leave her”, he said. “I don’t think I will ever be able to
leave her”, he added with a frown.
“Well…that’s good”, you chuckled moving closer to him.
“I don’t know…what if I’m too protective? What if she hates me for that?”
He frowned. “She’s our first baby, I want to make it right”, he sighed. You smiled
a little and rubbed his arm slowly.
“Tony you will be more than too protective. You will intimidate every
single guy she ever comes home with. You will send Bucky to scare of the boys
that mess with her at school. You will probably build some kind of armour for
her 15th birthday”, you chuckled making him chuckled a little as
well. “But you’re her father and maybe some time you will get on her nerves,
like you get on mine, but she will love you more than anyone else in this world”,
Biting his lip, he looked up at you letting you see the tears in his
eyes. With a loving smile you looked down and kissed him softly.
“I love you”, he whispered. “And thank you…for her”, he added with a
“Thanks to you. She wouldn’t be here without your participation”, you
“I’m willing to participate more”, he smirked.
“Wow! Slow down Iron Man”, you laughed quietly. “One at a time, shall
we? We first have to raise this one”, you added looking down at her.
Just then she moved a little on Tony’s arms and started crying quietly
at the beginning but in less than a minute she was crying out loud.
“Ok, this is your job, ma’am”, Tony quickly said getting up and putting
her in your arms before exiting the room so you could feed her.
Laughing you shook your head and sat down with her. Too much for a romantic moment with Tony Stark.
