Since most head canons seem to revolve around Rumple and baby Gideon (which is sweet, but sad), I was wondering if you had any head canons for Belle and baby Gideon. Sometimes it seems as if she's almost forgotten as a parent, which is one of my issues with 6B (she never had any real scenes with adult Gideon)
Sure; here are a few of my favorites:
Baby Gideon tugs on Belle’s hair and winds it around his wrists, so she starts wearing ponytails and casual up-dos. When he gets a little older, he teethes on her hair.
Gideon’s first word is “book,” closely followed by “mama,” and “ummel” aka Rumple. (Rumple is still flustered because Gideon hasn’t said dada yet).
Gideon has little stashes of picture books. All. Over. The. House.
Gideon’s favorite table food is ground hamburger. He’s not ready for ketchup, yet.
Instead of “Old MacDonald Had a Farm,” Belle sings “Sparkly Rumple Had a Castle” to the same tune. It’s Gideon’s favorite song.
Belle dresses Gideon in blue a lot, not because it’s a “boy color” but because it’s her favorite.
Belle takes Gideon to the library and sits him in his bouncy seat to play while she works. Thanks in part to his frequent visits, he loves the smell of books.
