honestly was waiting so long for it

Baby Series #5 - Bringing The Baby Home

PREGNANCY SERIES | BABY SERIES MASTERLIST

TAGS: @rainydays4 @cosmoeticss

A/N: Honestly you guys have been so patient with me and I really appreciate it. I’m sorry I’m making you wait so long between posts but it’s getting hard to get on here regularly. Enjoy this next bit of the baby series though and don’t forget you can send me in ideas of what you’d like to see in terms of Daddy 5sos ! xx 

Ashton:

Ashton was smiling widely as he unlocked the front door, letting you pass with Grayson’s carrier before going inside himself. You looked around the familiar space and sighed contentedly, glad to finally be home. Because your labour had been fast and because Grayson had come earlier than expected your doctor had kept you in hospital for longer, making sure that both you and Grayson would be okay to go home. After a week you were freed, excitedly bundling your little boy into his carrier while Ashton drove the car around.

Now that you were home it truly felt like the start of parenthood.

Placing Grayson’s carrier down on the couch you adjusted his blanket as Ashton wrapped his arms around your waist, kissing you on the side of the face. Grayson had fallen asleep before you’d gotten him into the car and he was still out like a light, his small hands bunched up into fists by his head as he sucked on his dummy.

“It feels so good to be home,” Ash murmured against your skin. “Can’t wait to show Gray around the house.”
“Ash, he won’t even understand what you’re showing him, let alone remember it.”
“That’s fine,” Ashton shrugged. “I’ll remember it. I’ve wanted a family for so long y/n and now we have the most perfect little boy I could have ever imagined.”

You turned slightly and pressed your lips against Ashton’s cheek, smiling into his skin.
“You’re already such a good Daddy,” You said, turning back to look at your son, watching the way his chest rose and fell with each breath. “Welcome home sweet boy.”

Luke:

It was nerve wracking leaving the hospital, leaving the safety net that you and Luke had had for the last couple of days. Now everything was up to the two of you and while you were mostly excited, there was a small amount of dread that filled your chest. What if you couldn’t differentiate between McKenna’s cries, what if you didn’t swaddle her properly or didn’t feed her enough… you were driving yourself insane just thinking about it.

“You okay baby? Luke asks, looking at you through the rearview mirror, his eyebrows knitting together. “You’re really quiet back there.”
“Just thinking Lu, sorry,” You replied, focusing your attention back on your baby girl.

She was wide awake but didn’t seem concerned about anything, her bright blue eyes glancing around as you rubbed a soft circle over her belly.
“Well we’re almost home, just around the corner.”

When Luke pulled into the driveway you took a deep breath, getting out of the car as Luke grabbed McKenna’s carrier. He pulled you into his side with his free arm and kissed the top of your head.
“This is your home baby girl,” He murmured down to Kenzie. “This is going to be where you grow up.”
His words made you smile and for a moment you forgot all about your insecurities about being a good Mum.
“You’re such a sap Hemmings.”

Calum:

When you woke up you were slightly disoriented, your brain fuzzy in the dark room until you remembered that you and Nevaeh had been discharged from the hospital earlier that morning. After your near brush with death your doctor had kept you in for nearly two weeks, keeping a close watch on you and your little girl. You’d recovered fairly quickly from the emergency c-section and Nevaeh was progressing exactly where she should be. Once you’d been cleared Calum happily took you home, talking your ear off nearly the whole way.

It had been a crazy couple of weeks and while in the hospital you and Calum had been in a happy bubble, expressing your feelings for one another without any thought of what was going to happen when you went home. As soon as Calum had pulled up into the driveway of your apartment block your bubble popped and reality set in. You panicked and told Calum that you were going to put Nevaeh down for a nap and catch up on a bit of sleep yourself. It wasn’t a complete lie, you were exhausted and numerous people had told you to sleep whenever the baby slept.

You’d obviously been asleep for longer than you intended because when you opened your eyes the room was in darkness. Sitting up quickly you flipped on the bedside lamp, glancing towards the bassinet sitting against the far wall. Walking over you expected to see your little girl sleeping soundly but only found it empty.

Quietly walking out of the bedroom and into the living room you found Calum reclined back on the couch, his mouth hanging open as he snored softly, Nevaeh perched comfortably on his chest, cradled by both of his arms. It was a sight that immediately made you smile. It didn’t matter that you and Calum hadn’t figured anything out between the two of you, this was your family, the three of you together.
“Home sweet home,” You whispered.

Michael:

“Are you okay Mike?” You asked, watching as he held one carrier in each hand, swinging the car door shut with the edge of his foot.

Michael looked up at you and gave you a bright smile, nodding his head.
“Yeah babe,” He answered, walking up to you.

It was surreal to think you were finally home with the twins, you’d spent longer than you’d imagined in the hospital and you were happy to finally be out of there, bringing your boys home. Ethan and Issac were two very happy, very healthy boys, your doctor immensely happy with how they’d progressed. Issac was still the biggest out of the two of them but Ethan had put on a good amount of weight as well, spending little to no time in the NICU.

Unlocking the front door you let Michael in before you, smiling as he placed twins down carefully on the couch. You wrapped him into a hug and leaned up to kiss his cheek.
“I can’t believe we’re finally home,” You said happily, looking around your living room.

Michael was about to reply when he was cut off by Ethan, his dummy falling from his mouth as he let out a soft whimper. He wriggled in his carrier and stretched his arms up, his little face turning red.
“Oh sweetheart,” You cooed. “What’s all this crying about huh?”
Lifting him from the carrier you cradled him against your chest, beginning to rock him back and forth while placing a kiss to his rosy cheek.

He didn’t settle down right away and it only took a minute for Issac to start crying as well, upset by his brothers whimpering. Michael quickly picked him up and looked at you over the babies head.
“And so it begins,” He said.

oh my god i loved that new chapter its so good. the whole time reading it i felt /emotions/ and it made my heart hurt its so good. it honestly didn't take a route i was expecting but surprised me with a better one and now im so excited to see what happens next (not that im rushing you, writing is hard and you should take however long you need to, i can wait) i just loved this new chapter so much and needed to tell you immediately

Thank you! Hopefully the next one will come out quicker.

This chapter was originally going to take a different route, but it fllowed pretty terribly until I remembered certain facts: :Bill is a liar, Dipper wasn’t quite ready to have a sincere talk, and Bill is a total asshole. With all the games they play - well, eventually one of them had to have some common sense.

[Lance] [Pidge] [Hunk]

It’s been 7 months and 20 days

since Bang Chan tried to sing “Rubber Ducky.” Today he was able to sing to his heart’s content. History has been made.

  • Castiel: Where did this tear in reality come from? Huh? This is weird even to me and I'm an angel
  • Castiel: If Dean where here he would say 'Castiel, don't do anything stupid, dumbass!' and 'wait for back-up', then he'd say 'what's with you and the half-cocked ideas?'. He's really rude sometimes...and honestly, where does he even get the nerve?
  • Castiel: Well fuck you Dean
  • Castiel: I don't need anything to be full-cocked! Am going in!
  • *Somewhere far away*
  • Dean: Cas just did something stupid, I can feel it. Why am I NOT surprised? Don't you 'greater good' and 'please trust me Dean', I wouldn't trust you with a plastic spoon! God I hate you
  • Sam: So long-distance fighting is a thing now

me: i’m fine

what i actually mean: yoongi said that they already made a song together and sope are fucking back and i just want satan to take me cause fuck yes i’ve been waiting for ages for a sope sub unit, it’s like a fucking dream come true i promise i’m okay, i’m-

things we now know about matthew holt (s4 spoilers)

-he can fucking s e e

-his relationship with shiro was more formal on the kerberos mission than we thought

-he gavE HIS GLASSES TO PIDGE CAUSE HE WANTED HER TO HAVE SOMETHING TO REMEMBER HIM BY

-the entire alias of “pidge gunderson” is based off of matt (hair, glasses, name, actual intent for the alias, etc.)

-instead of being super protectice of pidge, he was really proud of everything she’s done with team voltron and was really happy for her

-he’s smitten for allura

-super cool and suave big brother

-he has a close relationship with his dad (who even has a secret code language with their dad c’mon)

-know his way around a pole ;))) (i’m sORrY)

-getting into the garrison was the best thing to ever happen to him (other than pidge being born probably)

-he’s the one who originally called katie “pidge”

-he was respectful enough to stop calling her that when she asked him to

-lance lowkey wants him dead now

-he’s a devout and badass rebel officer that was willing to drop everything to help the coalition

-he is currently the only one who knows about keith almost sacrificing himself

-him, hunk, and pidge are the biggest team of nerds ever

-would probably die for pidge (same honestly)

-such a fucking dork oh my god

-beautiful pre and post kerberos mission

-loved and respected by all

in conclusion matt holt is the best thing to happen to this season (lowkey this show too) and i have so much excitement stowed away to see his future character development and how he interacts with the team and aaAAAA

I just love how the entire fandom collectively agreed that Hux didn’t believe Kylo at all when he claimed that Rey killed Snoke.

my assistance dog needs gear

hiii im frankie! im 18 and i live on a farm in queensland australia. im an artist, sfx makeup artist and wigmaker. i love animals and rainbows and i work one day a week in our community library! im a nonbinary lesbian and i would die for my chickens and my right to dress tacky.

i also happen to be pretty sick. when i was thirteen i developed endometriosis and chronic migraines. when i was fourteen i developed depression and anxiety. when i was fifteen i got a beautiful dog and he made my life a living hell. when i was sixteen and he was dead i dropped out of highschool. when i was seventeen i was diagnosed with ptsd and misophonia. 

my migraines are daily, severe and incurable through every experimental treatment we could find. my anxiety, ptsd and misophonia means it’s impossible to leave the house without having public breakdowns. and now on top of all this, my kidneys fucked up. id been having surgery for my endometriosis for years, but a month ago i was rushed to the er with pain and almost died from septic shock. i spent two weeks in hospital with a drain in my side and i have an exploratory operation later this month. 

this has made my ptsd far worse. ive been hearing voices and developing psychotic symptoms. i dissociate and wander off into danger, and have other personalities take over my body. ive been having episodes that they’re investigating as seizures. i can’t function any longer- so im getting an assistance dog (the australian version of a service dog). im getting her to rouse me from dissociation and unconsciousness, to keep me grounded and guided in public, to provide deep pressure therapy and help me carry things when im fatigued. to check the halls at night when im panicking. she’s going to be the reason i can be functioning in public.

I have a puppy lined up from a fantastic breeder and will be bringing her home within a few months if everything goes well.

the problem is, even despite how much of the medical costs are covered, my parents have had to pay for a lot, and an assistance dog is hugely expensive. so im reaching out.

i have an amazon wishlist. it’s all gear for her, listed by priority. im not asking for gifts, honestly. if you want to donate something on the list you’re an angel, but im an artist and i am willing to do commissions in exchange for you buying something on the list!!! 

just message my art blog, @frankiefangart and let me know what you bought and what you want me to draw and ill do it. please remember that i am very sick right now and my art tablet is broken, so it will be traditional for the time being unless you’re willing to wait a long time. 

i can’t thank you guys enough. reblogs mean SO much to me, as does sharing with your friends and family. you can follow my journey with my dog here on this blog and see the impact you’ve made.

💕🐶💕AMAZON WISHLIST: http://a.co/7kSTMIm 💕

main: @funkylittlefang / art: @frankiefangart / assistance dog blog: you’re here!

tldr: im sick and getting an assistance dog- i have a wishlist full of gear for her and im willing to do art in return for people buying things on it!!

SECRET SESSIONS LONDON - MY STORY💕

13/10/17 (aka THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE)

okay so where do I begin…WOW.
okay so… on Monday October 3rd at 10:25pm, I was sitting on my phone in my room listening to holy ground and I was on twitter and BOOM. “TAYLOR NATION SENT YOU A DIRECT MESSAGE” I STARTED SHAKING AND CRYING WHEN I READ THE CONFIDENTIAL MESSAGE I WAS SO CONFUSED BECAUSE THEY DONT EVEN FOLLOW ME (yes I’m still trying to work out technology ok) AND I FLIPPED OUT AND I RAN INTO MY MOMS ROOM SOBBING AND I TRIPPED OVER THE HOOVER BUT ITS OKAY. MY MOM WAS SAYING ALL SORTS OF THINGS LIKE SOMEONE MAY HAVE HACKED INTO TAYLOR NATIONS ACCOUNT (?????? idk). Anyway I died and my mind was a mess and I couldn’t control myself at all, I had knew what it usually meant when people got these messages and I explained everything to my mom ( she is genuinely worst-case-scenario-Christine ) and she started crying with happiness for me. THAT DAY WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED.

The next day October 4th at 5:27pm, I was (trying) to study when BOOM. I RECEIVED THE CALL. Ali phoned and told me about a special secret event on Friday the 13th of October and I was shaking so so much and could barely even talk but she was honestly the nicest ever (I noticed she said “wonderful” about a million times and I’m now so in love with that word). Side note: My mom still wasn’t really convinced this wasn’t a set up to get me kid napped but SHE FINALLY CALMED DOWN A LITTLE AND MEANWHILE I WAS SHAKING, CRYING AND BASICALLY DEAD.

Okay so then it was the waiting game…the days DRAGGED in as I found out a whole 10 DAYS before the event and I saw Taylor lurk people on tumblr/Instagram AND she liked the post about me and my best friend Eve. PEOPLE WERE ALSO TALKING ABOUT WHAT COULD HAPPEN ON THE 13TH AND I WAS JUST SITTING THERE LIKE HELP ME WHATS GON HAPPEN.

Fast forward to Friday…so because I live in Glasgow I had to fly to London… I COULDNT SLEEP AT ALL AND I ONLY GOT 4 HOURS SLEEP LOL BECAUSE I GOT UP AT 4AM. We went to the airport and I was genuinely so nervous and excited about what could possibly be happening. We then got a bus and then a tube and wandered about Covent Garden and EVERYTHING kept reminding me of Taylor. We then got a tube and another bus ( NUMBER 13 ) to our hotel. I got really stressed out because I opened up my case and there was makeup spilt on my dress BUT MY MOM CAME TO THE RESCUE AND FIXED IT FOR ME. I curled my hair and fixed myself up then I went to out to the secret meeting point and recognized so many people from tumblr/twitter etc and it was SO surreal. ALSO A FEW PEOPLE CAME UP TO ME AND WERE LIKE OMG ABBIE I KNOW YOU AND THAT MADE ME FEEL SO SO SPECIAL SO I LOVE YOU FOR THAT IF THAT WAS YOU. We checked in and got really cool wristbands saying United Kingdom (IN THE REPUTATION FONT) I WAS ALREADY DEAD.

We went to drop off our bags and me and I met 2 beautiful, amazing girls called Emma ( @taylorsmusic ) and Flora ( @spoookyswift ) and we were FREAKING OUT TOGETHER. We just couldn’t comprehend that we could potentially meet our idol. We talked about everything and I genuinely think I have 2 new best friends for life. I LOVE YOU GUYS. We were on the last bus to leave so we waited foreverrrr and my nerves were building up so much and I was FULL ON ALL OVER SHOOK.

Everyone on the bus was SO EXCITED and we were all dying together. It was such a combination of nerves and excitement like I can’t even describe it. So we FINALLY arrived at our secret destination and were escorted to the entrance to be searched etc (there was a big box of socks for some reason and it made us laugh so just thought I’d add that in and also a few half finished smart water bottles👀).

Okay so then we went through to TAYLORS HOUSE. It was beautiful and there was so much food laid out and I had a REPUTATION COOKIE and CUSTOMIZED REPUTATION M&MS and CHICKEN TENDERS. Taylors playlist of the songs she loves was playing in the background and we were LOVING LIFE. (Side note: my mom loved the olives you put out taylor so thanks for that) So basically me, Emma and Flora were chilling together (we were not chill at all tho) and everything was fine THEN Flora goes “oh my god, that’s Scott” AND IM LIKE WTF AND WE ALL LOOK OVER AND DIE LIKE WHAT WAS HAPPENING BEFORE OUR VERY EYES THE KING OF GUITAR PICS WAS HERE. We went and spoke to more amazing people and life was good…THEN TREE COMES THROUGH AND IM LIKE WHATATSTSS THATS A LEGEND THEN NOT LONG AFTER THAT WE SEE ANDREA AND WE ALL DIED. I CRIED WHEN I SEEN ANDREA IDK WHY IT JUST GOT TOO MUCH AND SHES MY QUEEN. IT GENUINELY FELT LIKE A DREAM LIKE SURELY THIS WAS NOT REAL.

Finally, after a while, we went through to THE LIVING ROOM. YES. A CHAIR. A SPEAKER. WE ALL KNEW WHAT THIS WAS. ME, EMMA AND FLORA HAD A LITTLE SUPPORT NETWORK GOING ON BECAUSE WE WERE ALL HOLDING HANDS BECAUSE WE WERE NOT PREPARED AT ALL. I cried - yeah she wasn’t even here yet and I cried. So anyway THEN I’m like I can’t even do this and my heart is beating abnormally fast. And that’s when she appeared…

I COULDNT BELIEVE MY EYES. MY ANGEL. MY EVERYTHING. GENUINELY LIKE A METER AWAY. NO WAY. Okay so then I SOBBED even more and I was uncontrollable (I finally did calm down but omg it was so hard I couldn’t stop crying) - thank you Emma and Flora for helping me LOL. Side note: her hair was so curly and pretty and she wore this camo dress thing and SNAKE BOOOOOOTS and a snake ring and yeah I was like GO GURLLL. IN THAT MOMENT I DIED IT WAS ACTUALLY HAPPENING.

On to the album, obviously you guys understand I can’t say much at all BUT REPUTATION IS MY FAVOURITE ALBUM BY FARRRRR. Like it’s genuinely so different but so genius - it’s incredible. She’s so talented and you can tell she’s worked so super hard for it and I can tell she’s happier than ever through the way she talks and she just seems so content with life and it makes me so proud and happy of how far she’s came. It’s so emotionally complex and THE LYRICS (she’s a genius okay). But there was one song that made me full on SOB and everyone in that room felt something…ANYWAY Taylor herself, during the whole of the session, she was so funny and she’s just so genuine…it was unreal. UNREAL. Some highlights that stand out to me include when during one of the songs she looked right at me for about 20 seconds or so and we just danced and smiled at each other. IVE NEVER FELT SO LOVED IN MY LIFE. To say I’m proud of her for this album is an understatement.

okay so then….IT WAS MEET AND GREET TIME. We were all sitting reading the magazines and talking to each other and it was adorable and even though I was a nervous wreck, everyone was so nice and amazing towards me. When it was time for the picture I was at the waiting point I can’t tell you how I felt. It was indescribable. I seen the 2 girls before me hug Taylor goodbye and it was my turn. I ran up to her and hugged her so hard and she looked at me and went “ITS ABBIE ISNT IT?” AND I WAS NODDING AND I WAS LIKE YEAH ITS ME and she was like “NO WAY I CHOSE YOU LIKE A YEAH AGO LIKE SOOOO LONG AGO” and I was like NO WAY and then I was like “THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING YOUVE HELPED ME THROUGH, YOU’VE HONESTLY GOT ME THROUGH SO MUCH” and she was listening so intently and she smiled at me and hugged me and we held hands for a few seconds which was BEAUTIFUL and she was like “you are SO beautiful like SO beautiful and you are SO funny like you’re posts are hilarious” and I started shaking and I told her she was like a big sister to me and then we got a really cute huggy picture and then we got one with my mom which was cute and THEN (THIS WAS THE FUNNIEST MOMENT) the camera guy said to my mom “do you want a pic alone with her” and my mom was like “oh it’s okay I’m just her mom” and TAYLOR WAS LIKE" OH WELL THANKS" IT WAS SO FUNNY. THEN I told her I loved her and she was like I LOVE YOU BUDDY and I gave her one final hug before I left which was MAGICAL (I swear we hugged about 27468273 times).

As soon as I left the room, I BURST INTO TEARS I COULDN’T BELIEVE I HAD JUST MET MY IDOL AFTER LIKE 6 YEARS OF LOVING HER AND FANGIRLING OVER HER. My mom went to talk to mama swift and she said to her “thank you so much for making a beautiful, amazing role model for my daughter” and mama swift was like AWWW THANK YOU SO MUCH THEN MY MOM GAVE HER A HUG AND THEN I GAVE HER A HUGE HUG AND MAMA SWIFT WAS LIKE THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING HER AND DOING THE CRAZY THINGS SHE MAKES YOU DO AND I CRIED MORE.

WE THEN WENT TO GET OUR MERCH AND GET ON THE BUS AND I WAS GENUINELY STARSTRUCK AND ME AND EMMA JUST KEPT LOOKING AT EACH OTHER AND BEING LIKE DID THAT REALLY JUST HAPPEN?!?!?!

Taylor,
Thank you so so so much for inviting me to your London Secret Session - it was an HONOR to be there. I can’t believe I was given such a beautiful, amazing opportunity and I meant everything I said to you in there and it truly came from the heart. I love you so much and I can’t wait to hopefully see you on tour. You mean the world to me and I can’t wait to hear reputation again and DIE ANOTHER MILLION DEATHS.
I love you so much girl.
