I was less worried this time around, the baby was definitely Ailani’s. I hadn’t missed that drained feeling of being pregnant though. It was back to taking naps most days for me, while Ailani looked after Blair. For the first time, I felt like things were going to be okay. I couldn’t believe how excited I was for baby number two!
Eventually Mitchell eased his way into hanging around with us again. He really took a liking to Blair. He even pitched in to help her with her homework when Ailani needed some time to write his new piece. Just as it happened before, my stomach grew larger and I couldn’t have been more excited. Oddly enough, Mitchell secretly asked me if either Blair, or the new baby could be his. I told him definitely not, but he didn’t buy it. I warned him not to say anything to Ailani, or he’d never see either of my children again.
