Chapter 9: Christmas time Pt.1
Here we are at home and Bella is doing much better. It is two weeks before Christmas and we have been trying to take care of Bella and get ready for Christmas all at the same time. Bella is now able to walk but with a very small walker. She has a boot now over her cast so she can use it. Other than her cast and boot, Bella is doing really well. We all have been talking about telling her about us when she is about five but I think it’s a bad idea. She might get scared of us and want to leave. I can't lose her, I know when we first got her I was against keeping her, but now I love her like a little sister. Well today Bella and I are going to hang out while the others go Christmas shopping. Right now it’s just seven in the morning so I am going to fix her some breakfast.
I walked into the kitchen to fix Bella some breakfast and saw mom in there.
“What are you doing mom?” I asked her.
“Oh just trying to think of what to fix Bella for breakfast,” she told me.
“Well I was wondering if I could fix it for her. Today is just going to be me her and me and I wanted to make it special,”I told her.
“Oh okay son, let’s fix it together and it will get done faster. So what do you have in mind?”
“Well she loves eggs so I was thinking about making a ham and cheese omelette with buttered toast and orange juice,” I told her.
“Okay sounds like she will love it. Let’s get it started,” mom told me.
I grabbed the eggs and cracked two eggs into the pan, while mom cut the ham up and the cheese. The eggs were almost done when mom brought me the ham and cheese. I put them into the eggs and flipped half the egg over. I finished cooking the omelette while mom fixed the toast. I put the omelette on a plate with the toast and I fixed her a cup with a lid of orange juice. Then it was time for her to get up. I walked into the living room to wait while Rose and Em got Bella woke up and dressed. I was talking to Jazz when they came downstairs and I saw Bella. She was not looking very happy at all. I walked up to her and she reached for me. I took her from Rose.
“Bella honey, what is wrong?” I asked her.
“Uncle Em scared me,” she told me.
“Uncle Em, why did you scare Bella?” I asked him.
I looked at him and he was still laughing.
“Well, Rose went to Bella's closet to get her clothes and Bella was still asleep. And, well, I walked up to her crib and said boo. She jumped and started to cry some and Rose hit me in the back of the head for scaring her,” Em told us.
I looked at Bella and she smiled at me.
“Are you ready for breakfast?” I asked Bella.
She nodded her head and I walked in the dining room with her hanging onto me. I went to put her in her high chair and she told me “no”. I just looked at her.
“I want to be a big girl and sit in big chair,”she told me.
So I put her in a chair and she looked so cute even though there was no way she could sit there and eat. She can't see over the table. So I put her in my lap and she was able to eat then.
“Edward, we are all heading out. If you need anything just give me a call,” mom told me.
“OK mom, we will see you later,” I told her.
She came and gave Bella a kiss on the head then Rose came in and did the same thing. Then they left us. I looked at Bella and smiled at her.
“What we going to do today?” Bella asked me.
“Well we can play games and watch TV and you can eat what you want,” I told her.
“Yeah, I can't wait,” she told me.
She finished eating and I did the dishes and we started off with a movie. She really loves Disney princesses, so we watched Beauty and the Beast. Then she said for me to pick something so I picked a movie on TV. After we watched two shows she wanted to play games. So we played patty cake, hide and seek, even though she could not hide to well because of her walker. Then it was going on noon and time for lunch. I heard her tummy growl and she laughed her sweet bell laugh. So I put her on my shoulders while I fixed her a ham sandwich with some chocolate milk. She ate everything and drank all her milk then she yawned really big and I knew it was time for nap time. Before I laid her down my phone rang.
“Edward, we are on our way home in 30 minutes. Bella will be asleep by then; I need you to clear that area in front of the wall in the living room. We bought a big Christmas tree and I want to have it up and decorated by the time she wakes up from her nap,” Alice told me.
I hung up with her and then I walked upstairs and laid Bella down. I hummed to her, her song and she fell asleep in no time. I then cleaned that area up and waited for them to show up. Not even five minutes later they pulled up. I helped them bring in everything then it was time to put the tree up and decorate it before Bella woke up.
Two hours later we had an eight foot tree up, decorated and lit up. I then heard Bella waking up. I ran up after her and when she saw me she smiled. I picked her up and walked her out of her room, then as fast as she, could without being seen by Bella, Alice ran into Bella's room to decorate it also. I walked downstairs with Bella and when she saw the huge tree in the living room she smiled really big.
“What is thaaaat?” she asked.
“That Bella is what you call a Christmas tree,”I told her.
“It’s very pretty,” she said.
“It is very pretty Bella. Now what do you want to do?” I asked her.
“Um, let’s play with Em and Jazz,” she said.
Em and Jazz got up and sat on the floor with her and me. We played with her dolls and babies.
“Edward, this is mine and your baby,” she told me.
Then everyone burst out laughing, which caused Bella to blush and hide her face in my chest. After everyone stopped laughing she came back out and smiled. We went back to playing again. After hours of playing tea party which Bella made me, Em and Jazz dress up in big girly hats and playing with her dolls, it was time for dinner for her. Mom fixed her some soup and crackers. She ate and we all sat and talked and played games again till it was time to sleep. Rose and Alice gave her a bath and I was the one to lay her down. I sang to her and she was out in no time. I then joined the family in wrapping up gifts they all got her. For the rest of the night we decorated the house inside and out and talked about what we were going to do for Christmas.
