5SOS Preference #24: Welcome Home
- Ashton Irwin: "Hello, hello!" Ashton shouts a bit after opening our house's door. "Daddy! Mommy! Jakey!" I hear Austin shout and the pitter patter of his feet. I walk through the door with a smile while carrying the baby carrier that is securing my sleeping newborn, Jacob. "I missed you mommy." Austin says, wrapping his arms around my leg while I set the carrier on the counter. Ashton's mom walks into the kitchen and I wave at her. "What about me?" Ashton pouts and Austin giggles, shaking his head. I kneel down to Austin's height. "I missed you too, baby." I say and he hugs me. Then little cries come from the baby carrier. Ashton moves to unclasp Jacob from the carrier. "Come here, my sleepy bug. Daddy's got you." He coos, picking Jacob up and kissing his cheek. I pick Austin up and rest him on my hip. "Wow." Austin whispers while looking down at his brother, who's in his daddy's arms. "Isn't he cool?" I ask Austin and he nods. "So cool." He whispers. Ashton smiles and kisses Jacobs forehead. "Welcome home, little guy." Ashton whispers with tears in his eyes.
- Luke Hemmings: "Hey..." Luke coos gently to our crying Ella while rubbing her cheek with the back of his fingers, slowly. "You're fine, pumpkin." He reassures her before leaning down and pecking her cheek gently before re-situating her in his arms. I watch them with a smile on my face while laying on my side next to him on our bed. He's sitting up and resting his back against the headboard while staring at her. "She's so tiny." Luke whispers after Ella stops whimpering, now asleep. I laugh a bit before sitting up myself. "She looks so much like you." I admit, sitting next to him and looking at her too. "So precious." He says as I move her little bangs to the side. "She's gonna break hearts." I whisper with a laugh and Luke smiles. I lean down and kiss her forehead. "I love you, my little Ella bean." I whisper to her. She squeaks a bit in delight. "Welcome home, lovely." Luke whispers too, resting his head onto mine after I laid mine on his shoulder.
- Calum Hood: "Ryder, what did I say?" Calum warns quietly next to me while I hold our sleeping newest addition, Olivia. "To play quietly." Ryder mumbles quietly while moving his toy trucks around the carpet. "Just tone it down a bit, Ry." I say with a small smile. "Yes, mama." Ryder says before returning back to his toys. I rock Olivia gently as Calum lays down next to me, trying to sleep. Olivia then squawks awake. "Shh, it's alright." I coo while patting her bum gently. "Is she okay mama?" Ryder asks before sitting down next to me and staring over her. Calum sits up once she cries out loud. "Everything's okay. She's just tired." I say, trying to calm her down. "You're okay, Olivia," Ryder reassures sweetly while rubbing her head gently. "You're okay." After he rubs her for awhile, she calms down and returns to her sleep. "Nice job, little man." Calum says holding out his hand for him and Ryder slaps it with his hand for a high-five. I kiss his forehead before we all look at Olivia in awe. "Welcome home, baby girl." Calum whispers before kissing the top of her head.
- Michael Clifford: "Is everything good back there?" Michael asks while looking at me through the rear view mirror. I nod my head gently while sitting between the two baby carriers that are securing my sleeping babies. Nick sits to my left and Zach on my right. Zach holds my pinky with his little hand as I watch Nick snore quietly. "They're so cute, all bundled up." I whisper while looking at them back and forth. Michael chuckles while staring at the road, driving slowly. "You want anymore?" He asks and I shake my head quickly. "Not right now at least." I say with a laugh and so does he. "I'll defiantly want a girl later." I admit quietly as I wipe the drool off of Nick's chin with my thumb. "That can be arranged." Michael says before looking at me in the rear view mirror again. "Later Michael. Later." I say and he smiles. "Alright, alright." He chuckles. "I love my all of boys." I say proudly with a smile. I then kiss Nick and Zach's cheek. "Ah, at last." Michael states while pulling into our driveway. I cheer a quiet "yay". He parks the car gently and turns around to face me and our kids. "Welcome home, my babies." Michael says with a big smile.
