They left around nine so Santa can come and I tucked Bella, Kelsey, and Starry in their beds/cribs and I sat on the couch. I had on my Christmas pajamas bottoms and a cute red
tank top, "I love you." Austin said kissing my lips "I love you too." I said and when it turned midnight "Happy Anniversary baby." I said "happy Anniversary." Austin said holding me in his arms.
What a year, losing Bella, getting Bella back, getting pregnant, a not so easy pregnancy, having Starry, getting raped, being relieved I'm not pregnant. The court hearing was on the 23rd and let's
just say he is behind bars for a while. He wouldn't even look at me during court and I didn't want to look at him either. "We will exchange gifts in the morning." Austin said "I though this was my
gift." I said talking about my necklace "Christmas gift." He said "Oh Austin." I said but he took my hand and led me to bed. "You know we won't sleep much." I said "I know." He said and I closed my
eye and I had another memory dream:
I was biting my lip hard, I was sitting on my bed with my knees kind of brought up to my chest. Bella was on the floor coloring, "What are you worried about?" Bella asked me looking up "I think I'm pregnant." I said "You think?" Bella asked "I did a stupid move. Okay?" I asked and she nodded "I'm sorry Bells. I'm just worried." I said "I know. But you have me, we have each other sissy. We will survive this." Bella said and I smiled at her, the timer beep and I slowly got up and walked to the bathroom. It was December 13th, school break would be in five days. I read the test, the little sign that would change my life forever. "Sissy?" Bella asked "I'm pregnant." I said "Oh sissy." She said hugging me tightly. On December 27th, I started my morning sickness and my mom came home "What are you doing throwing up? You sick?" She demanded not even being motherly "I'm um... pregnant." I said "How could you have been so stupid?! I told you not to ever have sex! They ruin your life! You were a mistake! Bella was an even bigger mistake! I would be in college!" She said and I just stared at her "Well I'm going to be a better mother to this baby!" I said and I knew that was a mistake when I said it, she slapped me hard in the face. "Get you'r a** to school!" She yelled at me and I went to school...
Another memory was Kelsey's first Christmas, it was Christmas Eve and we had a little nasty looking tree up, no decorations on it. "It's Kelsey's first Christmas, she needs a gift." Bella said "We don't have enough money to get her a gift." I said "I have one!" Bella said rushing into her side of the room and coming back with a teddy bear, her birthday present from my dad. "Are you sure?" I asked her "Yeah, Kelsey will use it more." Bella said and I hugged her "I'm sorry I can't get you anything." I said "Don't worry about sissy. It's about giving not getting." Bella said and I hugged her. Kelsey was four months old on Christmas, her face lit up at the sight of the bear and I smiled at Bella, "YOu are so strong." I said "I learned from you sissy." Bella said and I smiled, that day my mom came home drunk as a skunk with her newest guy "Merry Christmas." She said to us and I held Kelsey and Bella both. "We're going to Grandma's." I said "Stay out late." She said leading him to her room. I had to bundled up Kelsey and Bella and myself, we walked two blocks down into the better neighborhood and was given loads of gifts, Bella and Kelsey anyways. I was given gift cards, I knew my gifts would be use for money for drinks but I wasn't sure about theirs.
I was awoken by being shaken "baby wake up. Lexie wake up. Lex!" Austin said and I looked at him "You were mumbling in your sleep, and kicking." He said "Sorry." I said "What were you dreaming of?" He asked me and I just looked at him "my past." I said and he held me in his arms until "Mommy! Mommy! Daddy! Daddy!" I was called out and in runs Kelsey who jumps on our bed "It's Jesus's birthday!" Kelsey said "I'm up." I said hugging her "Did you wake Bella up?" I asked and my question was answered be a sleepy Bella walking in and sitting next to Austin on the bed "We're missing one." I said and Austin smiled "I will be back." He said but first he pulled out his I-phone and snapped a picture "I love you." Austin said and I rolled my eyes at him, but he came back with Starry who was awake but not fussy and then he snapped a picture of us four of us. "My four girls on Christmas. Starry's first, our first as a married couple." He said "Happy anniversary!" Bella and Kelsey said and we smiled at them.
We slowly made our way downstairs and the girls were surprised about the amount of gifts they had. I had to feed Starry so I did the cover over her and then after she got done I burped her and put her in her little swing. I put the Ipod on the Ipod dock and had the Christmas music playing. Austin handed out the gifts, one card addressed to both girls was taped to the tree. Kelsey opened up hers first Bella was watching her, a Baby Alive doll, Minnie Mouse clothes, a Princess doll, Minnie Mouse cover, a fake kitchen set for her, a Minnie Mouse tricycle, a Minnie Mouse coloring book set. A toy jeep she can ride in Bella got: A Hello Kitty pillow, a Hello Kitty comforter set, a Hello Kitty shirt, a Hello Kitty pen set, a Hello Kitty Necklace, a Hello Kitty coloring book, a Hello Kitty bike, scooter. Then they read the note "Outside?" Kelsey asked "Let's go." I said and they ran outside to see the swing set "Thank you! Thank you!" they said and we went back inside and opened up mine and Austin's gifts. A diamond bracelet with forever engraved on it.
