“Look, this is just for the night.” Andy closed their hotel room door, setting the baby bassinets on the bed. This had been the only room available, with two queen beds and a pullout sofa. Laura had tucked Gabriel into one of the beds and he’d fallen asleep as soon as she took off his shoes, but Andy was worried as he glanced over at their son. Laura was nursing Chelsea, and Jeremy was lying on the bed beside her, kicking up his legs.
“How’s he doing?” Andy slid his coat off and dumped it over their luggage.
“He just wants to sleep, Andy. I tried to get him to drink some water,” Laura said.
Andy nodded. “Let him sleep. Hopefully, he’ll be better in the morning and these two won’t pick up whatever bug he’s got.”
The last thing Laura wanted was two babies sick along with Gabriel. Flu bugs and colds generally went through the entire house, taking them all down one by one. The fact was that Laura was so damn tired that her bones ached. Getting up twice a night to feed the twins was starting to take its toll on her. On the bed beside her, as if reading her thoughts, Jeremy started fussing, cramming his fist into his mouth.
“Andy, I don’t know how much longer I can nurse these two,” Laura said. “When I feed one, the other needs feeding, and then they both need to be changed and…” She glanced up at him and felt bad immediately. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it. I’m just tired.”
“I know you’re tired,” he said, picking up Jeremy. “Hey there, what are you doing, giving your mama a hard time?”
Every time Andy held one of the babies, it tugged on a spot in Laura’s heart. He loved them so deeply, and he was an amazing father. He’d never allow anything to happen to them. At times, Andy could be over the top; so strong and so unbending. She may have once doubted his love for her, but never for the babies——not even for Gabriel, who wasn’t his biological son.
“I’ll get Chelsea and Jeremy bathed. You get some rest,” Andy said.
“I’d love to have a hot bath,” she said, putting it out there for him.
Maybe Andy took that to mean something else, as he sat beside her on the bed, sliding his arm around her. “Maybe after I get these two down, I’ll join you,” he said.
After all, it had been a while since they’d made love——before the twins, and Andy was not a man to wait. He was hot blooded and so male, but he’d been patient. Whatever opportunity there had been, well, she’d fallen asleep. They’d had nothing more than a chaste kiss here and there; a touch, a caress, right before one of the twins cried out or Gabriel raced in. They needed privacy and time, after she was rested. Right now, she had a choice between loving her husband and letting him do all those wonderful things that had her screaming out his name as he filled her over and over, or wrapping her arms around her pillow and falling into a deep sleep. Well, it was the pillow that won right now, hands down. She wondered if other women felt the same way she did. She heard that marriages often went through a rough patch after kids——and now she understood why.
Chelsea slipped off her breast, and Andy’s eyes went right there. They exchanged babies, and when Jeremy latched on to her other breast and started suckling, she leaned back against the pillow and closed her eyes for just a minute. The next thing she knew, Andy was taking Jeremy from her and tucking her in bed.
