We went shopping for two weeks straight making sure we have
everything we need. And it's July 4th so the 4th of July
celebration. 6 more days until my last doctor's appointment too!
I cannot wait either! I'm sitting on my bed and Blake comes in.
"I'm joining the Army." He said I looked at him "What?" I said
"yeah I'm a year older than you and I've always wanted to join
the Army." He said "No!" I said "Why not?" he asked "you have two
children on the way!" I said "I begin training July 20th so I
will be here. Then it's the school and all that. I want to do
this Colie." He said "Well I didn't want to end up pregnant at 16
but I did." I said "Colie just let me do this okay? It will give
us more money that we will need." He said "it will also make me
become a single mom." I said. "Nicole why are you being so harsh
about this?" he asked skipping Colie and going straight to
Nicole. "Because we will miss our wedding!" I said "oh well after
boot camp and A school we can get married!" he said not caring
how hurt I am.
*flashbacks to two summers ago*
"Colie and Erica come here please!" Robbie yelled we were in the
pool behind our house. The Wal*Mart pop up pool but still we went
running and hugged him. "When I graduate high school next year
I'm going to join the Marines." He said "No! Robbie you could
die!" we said "but I will be dying fighting for OUR freedom and
you cant stop me. You can either support me or don't care. But
you wont stop me I have my mind made up." Robbie said walking to
the pool; "fine Robbie. I support you. I may not like it but I
support you." I said and Erica agreed.
*get out of flashback*
"Robbie was gonna join the Marines. He told us we couldn't stop
him, he would die fighting for our freedom and I could either
support him or don't care so I will support you." I said placing
my hand on my belly. "Colie good, you can't stop me. I've already
signed the papers I'm in the U.S Army I will come home to you and
the kids I promise." He said I smiled "you better come home to
us. Because little Robbie must know who his daddy is to teach him
football and little Starry will need her daddy to tell her she
can't date." I said he smiled and kissed me, "when I come to the
states we will be stationed in different places a lot but we will
handle it. Or you could stay here and I would come and visit when
I can." He said "We would move to wherever you go. We will
follow." I said he smiled and kissed my lips. "So you will be
with the kids for five days and then you're gone." I said he
nodded I rolled my eyes. Boot camp last four weeks, he comes home
for two weeks, then goes to A school that lasts 8 weeks then he
comes home for three weeks and then he's shipped wherever they
want him to go.
July 10th is finally here and my appointment went great! The
babies know they are coming out soon and they're preparing for
the arrival. Doctor Swift told us that he needs to spend as much
time with them as he can or they won't remember who he is and he
will be total strangers to his two babies.
12:00 AM on July 15th I got my fist contraction about ten minutes
apart. It's now 12:00 PM and my water broke I was in the kitchen
doing dishes and I felt something cool liquid hit my legs and
then I felt a sharp pain and I grabbed the counter and screamed.
Daddy, Karen, and Blake came running. Next half hour was a blur
and I'm now sitting in the hospital waiting room. I'm supposed to
be dilated 10CM but I'm only dilated 5CM. I was told to walk
around and I did. Momma, Karen, and daddy are sitting in the
waiting room as I walk out "she was told to walk." Karen and
momma said to daddy. Funny thing is they are all becoming friends
for Erica and me.
It's four PM and I'm dilated 9.5CM now and I'm killing time by
joking with Lexie who came by to encourage me. Erica and Savannah
are in the waiting room waiting too. It's now six PM and I'm
dilated 10CM and I was told we will start pushing. "On three
push! 1…2…3 push! 1…2…3 push! 1…2…3 push! 1…2…3 push! 1…2…3 push!
One more I see the head! 1…2…3 push!" Doctor Swift said I was
pushing my hardest and it was wearing me out. "Congratulation
it's a boy! One more to go!" she said "1…2…3 push! 1…2…3 push!
1…2…3 push! 1…2…3 push! One more! 1…2…3 push!" she said and I
heard two babies cry. "Congratulation it's a girl!" she said.
They cleaned the babies off and handed them to me. "Boy's name?"
The nurse asked "Robbie Austin Wakefield. R-o-b-b-i-e A-u-s-t-i-n
W-a-k-e-f-i-e-ld." She said "he is ten inches long weighing 4
pounds two ounces. Icy blue eyes and curly brown hair." She said
and I smiled at him. "Girl's name?" she asked "Starlet Lynn
Wakefield. S-t-a-r-l-e-t L-y-n-n W-a-k-e-f-i-e-l-d." I said "She
is 8 inches long weighing 2 pounds two ounces. Icy blue eyes and
curly blonde hair." She said "Fraternal twins are normal
especially when it's a boy and a girl and at least they have the
same eyes color and nose and mouth." "When were they born?" I
asked "Robbie was born 7:30 PM and Starlet was born 7:32 PM." She
said Robbie my brother was born 7:30 PM on July 15th and that's
today. "They're adorable." Momma said I smiled.
I went home on the 18th and we had two days together we took him
to the airport and he was holding our 5 day old son "I love you
Robbie. I will see you in four weeks." He said kissing his
forehead and handing him to me and taking Starry from me. "Daddy
loves you Starry. I will see you in four weeks." He said I smiled
and kissed his lips, "we will be in our own home before you come
home." I said he nodded and kissed my lips "I will call and write
as much as I can. I love you Colie." He said walking off after
saying good-bye to everybody else.
Within half an hour Uncle Brent and Aunt Carrie got off their
plane. "Colie they are adorable!" Aunt Carrie said we smiled at
each other. We made it home and she got to meet Holly, "Holly you
are a doll." She said smiling and Holly smiled and went back to
watching Starry and Robbie sleeping. "We're here until the 31st
the same day Sky and Brad comes." Uncle Brent said talking to
daddy and he nodded. "Colie is excited for Sky coming down here."
He said I rolled my eyes and got up and hugged daddy's neck. "You
have two beautiful babies Colie." Uncle Brent said "Thank you." I
said walking over to Aunt Carrie and Karen they're talking about
our newest addition arriving and how they're coming down again on
my birthday weekend to see Caitlyn who is due August 7th while
I'm August 15th.
I sat down and started day-dreaming and Karen looked over at me
and smiled "Motherhood is tough isn't it?" she asked "yes ma'am
it is but it's worth it to see two beautiful children that loves
you so much." I said "You really love them don't you?" Aunt
Carrie asked me "yes ma'am I do. I would take a bullet for them
in a heartbeat even though they're only five days old." I said
and Aunt Carrie smiled. I heard a little baby's cry and knew
Starry needed her diaper changed. I can now tell the difference
between their cries and what each cries means. Since Blake
wouldn't get up and help any because why bother when he was
leaving in five days.
I changed her and carried her into the kitchen I know she needed
some attention. "Aunt Carrie you want to hold her? I gotta get
Robbie he's starting to cry in three…two…one." I said and sure
enough he started crying. She took Starry and smiled "you're good
Col." She said I smiled and got Robbie and changed him and walked
in here and fed them their bottles actually Aunt Carrie fed
Starry and I fed Robbie. "Karen I didn't think Blake was a jerk
like this." I said "he's lazy and hardheaded and he thinks this
is right." She said yeah sure is knowing we have two newborns and
I'm only 16 years old.
Aunt Carrie and Uncle Brent enjoyed their vacation here and loved
seeing Robbie and Starry a lot. I smiled at them "are you ready
to go?" I asked them I had the twins in their car-seats with
their diaper bags set and ready to go. "Yes we are, hate that our
planes leaves at 8 but yes." They said I was driving them they
gotta get there at six and board at seven and Sky gets off the
planes around seven so I'm taking them to make it easier on them.
"Bye Uncle Brent and Aunt Carrie I will miss ya'll and thanks for
coming." I said "No problem. I will miss you too. Take care of
them while we're gone. I want to see two healthy babies when I
get back." Aunt Carrie said I smiled and hugged them good-bye and
they left to go board the plane and I saw Sky and her dad walk
out and I wave and she takes off running and we hugs each other
tightly. I went to the baggage claim with them with the babies
asleep in their car-seats. "They're more adorable in person!" she
squealed and I smiled at her. We waited until her dad got the
rental car and drove home.
"I have missed you so much! School is not the same! And
everything isn't the same without you!" she said I smiled "I know
and I'm sorry I have missed you too!" I said and she smiled
looking in the back at them sleeping. "Starry is beautiful and
Robbie is handsome!" she said I smiled and remember Holly is
over. We got out and Erica hugged her "hey Mr. Summerland." She
said I introduced her, Karen, and Savannah and we walked to my
empty room. I'm moving tomorrow so most of my stuff are already
there expect a bed. Holly came in and smiled "Hi Aunt Colie are
the twins up?" she asked Sky turned around and looked and gasps
"she's Robbie's kid. No doubt about it." she said and Lexie came
in and saw Sky "hey Sky. Not a word or else." She said and Sky
nodded. Sky had always had a crush on Robbie and hated Lexie for
stealing him from her.
"Don't worry the rumor is he knocked you up and you left and the
rumor is right." She said but smiled "she's beautiful Lexie." Sky
said smiling "Thanks. She took after her daddy on most part and I
know he would have loved her." She said "yeah he would have. She
would have been his world." She said smiling "Jeez thanks Sky."
She said smiling though "no problem!" she said smiling at us and
Lexie walked off with Holly who then came back "can I look at
Starry?" she asked I smiled and picked her up and spun her around
and showed her Starry. "I love Starry and Robbie." She said "I
know you do I love them too." I said "Good thing. Their daddy
sure don't." She told me ouch that really hurt. "I know baby
girl. I know." I said smiling.
