“I dont know. Whenever is fine.”
“Next week if hes better?” I ask not knowing when Coda would get better.
I nodded. “Yeah it’s a little better. But it’s still not very good…”
After about 20 minutes I wake up and see Rose is still sleeping. I watch her sleep and I also look at her tummy. The babies must be sleeping I don’t see them kicking. Rose looks so peaceful.
Something had been on my mind all day. I just look at Maria. “Maria baby I want to ask or talk to you about something. It’s been on my mind all day. Also I love you.”
“Yes as soon as Coda is better.” I say as I smile at him then kiss him
“Coda you better get better so I can marry you’re mommy.” I say gently squeezing his hand.
“I want to rub your belly and take a nap my love. I’m so tired.” He smiled to her as he got comfortable.
I was still asleep. It was nice sleeping. I love sleeping. The babies settled down enough.
“Okay babe. Shoot. Ask me whatever you want.” She smiled at him.
“Probably very smiley and shy” I add on. “A few more days and hopefully our families can meet him.”
I just kept looking at her sleep. I love her so much. She looks so peaceful and rested or at least as rested as she can be. I know this was probably going to wake her up and I didn’t want to but we will see. I put my hand on her belly and started to rub it. I whispered “shh babies please don’t kick your mommy while I’m doing this. Let her sleep.”
I smile at her and give her a kiss. “I know we just started dating again or well for the first time but babe I was wondering what do you think about us having another kid. I mean you are a little old to have one biologically but what do you think about adopting another kid and actually being a real family. I mean of course we got Andy, Leo, Tori, Ariana and Lola but we never really watched them grow up or be in there lives. The only life I was in was Leo’s. What do you say or think about starting over again just you, I and a kid and actually doing things right this time with being there for them, no hurting them.”
“Well we are in bed love.” He said then kissed her and started to fall asleep.
She felt Gabe start to run her belly and she smiled. She stayed asleep though. She was extra tired.
“Well would you want a boy or girl? I mean we have three girls between the two of us and only two boys. So I would want a boy.” She smiled. She wanted this.
