Creepin' and crawlin'.

Alison was being vewwy vewwy quiet. She was hunting babies. Spying on them, really. She was peeking around the door frame from the kitchen. Aiden and Hana were playing on an activity mat she'd spread out for them. When she stepped away to grab sippy cups for them, she returned to a very interesting sight.

Hana was slowly rocking on her hands and knees. A toy she wanted had rolled just out of her reach and she was determined to get it. Alison held her breath as she watched the baby work out how to move her arms and legs just so. They had been inching closer to it for weeks.

Today might be the day!

Longshot had just got home from training. A ninja's life was never done. Once he mastered one thing, he needed to work on another. Though his training was being made into a finer point that he could see. It was worth it for all the additional ogling his wife gave him when he went shirtless.

He quietly kicked off his shoes in the entry way. Today's lesson had been on stealth, and it kind of stuck with him. He padded quietly over to the living room door and paused. What was his baby girl doing?

Hana was concentrating really hard. Her little face scrunched up as she moved one hand out in front of her. The slowly moved a wobbly knee. And she was closer! Her toy was closer! A little.

Aiden had stopped fiddling with the noisy beeper toys on the mat to watch his sister.

Longshot crouched down in the doorway and watched Hana with a widening grin. His baby girl was moving! He pressed his hands flat together and pressed his fingertips against his lips. He wanted to giggle in glee. Except disruption his daughter's concentration was not on the agenda at the moment.

Closer! Closer! Hana's other hand lifted from the floor and slowly reached forward. It touched down and she wobbled, a little stretched out and off balance, before she got her leg moving. Inch by inch, she made her way over to the rattle toy she wanted.

Alison wiggled in excitement in the kitchen doorway. Her baby was crawling!!

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-01 11:30 pm (UTC)(link)
"YAY!" Longshot hopped to his feet and scrambled across the floor to scoop up Hana when she had her rattle. Though he was very careful not to step on Aiden...

He picked up his baby girl and rubbed the tip of his nose on hers before kissing her forehead. "Now, you can chase me!"

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2008-09-01 11:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Hana giggled and squealed with glee when her Daddy picked her up! She got her toy and her Daddy! "Da-ee!"

The rattled made lots of noise as she shook it triumphantly. Aiden laughed from his seat on the play mat.

"She's working on it, Daddy." Alison smiled as she came in with the sippy cups. "One day, she'll outrun you."

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-01 11:56 pm (UTC)(link)
"She can tryyyyy." He tickled her belly with his fingers. Though he kept his face away from the rattle. "But Daddy's still the fastest."

He blew a raspberry on her cheek before winking at Aiden.

"Yes, we are. Of both our little ones." Alison leaned over and kissed Hana. The baby blinked up and giggled at her Mommy. Kisses! She made little grabby hands up at Alison and got another kiss for her efforts.

Aiden gave Daddy a big, slobbery kiss on the chin.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-04 07:17 am (UTC)(link)
Longshot made a face. "My chin... it dribbles with cute."

He would have to have a talk with his son if that's the way the boy thought kissing should go. His girlfriends later would thank the Daddy intervention. Though, right now, Longshot tickled Aiden's belly!

Baby giggles were the greatest thing ever.

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2008-09-04 07:19 am (UTC)(link)
Daddy got giggles! Aiden squealed and flailed. Tickle monster was everywhere tonight.

The dribble comment caught Alison off guard. She blinked once at her husband and then started to laugh. It was all she could do to keep Hana upright in her lap. Alison's laughed set off a giggle wave from the baby in her lap.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-04 07:30 am (UTC)(link)
Longshot stopped tickling when he got a room full of giggles. He grinned to himself and lightly tickled Aiden's chin. He loved his little boy lots. Just like he did his baby girl. It was moments like these he thought he would never have.

He held onto memories like these so tightly. One of his eyes leaked down the side of his cheek, but he didn't seem to care. He had a bouncy baby boy to care about!

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2008-09-04 07:39 am (UTC)(link)
Awww! Leaky eyes! Alison smiled at him from the floor and reach an arm out. "Come here, Daddy. Mommy wants some snuggle time now."

Hana looked up expectantly at Longshot.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-04 07:42 am (UTC)(link)
Longshot snuffled lightly and nodded. He moved over to settle down right beside Alison. He shifted Aiden in his arms so the baby could see his Mommy.

"Like this?"

"I'll get it." Alison laughed and kissed his cheek. "It's a good thing I'm not the jealous type. Other girls pulling down your pants and all..."

She stood up and headed for the kitchen once more.

Aiden peeked up at his Mommy as she walked by, but continued gumming his yummy couch leg. Hana was sloooooowly inching her way up her father's leg. She was allllllmost upright.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 05:44 am (UTC)(link)
Longshot slowly put his hands out to try to either support or catch his daughter. He was glad his pants were a little thick. Because otherwise, he was sure he would have tiny fingernail gouges.

"You'd make other girls jealous. Wouldn't you, baby girl?" He grinned at Hana.

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 05:55 am (UTC)(link)
"Ahh!" Hana answered as she struggled. Her little legs did the sumo baby bounce as they struggled to hold her up. Then she fell on her butt.

"Fah!"

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 06:02 am (UTC)(link)
Longshot chuckled as he scooped his baby girl up. "Darn that, gravity. Makes standing up hard!"

He pulled her to his chest for a cuddle. She tried. That made him happy. The Mojoworlder kissed the top of his daughter's head.

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 06:13 am (UTC)(link)
"Ooooh." Hana grumbled. Then she snuggled up with her Daddy. Somewhere along the line, she'd lost her teething ring. She whined and huffed.

Alison returned with the second teething ring and knelt to hand it to Aiden. Getting his attention from the couch leg took a minute, but she did eventually and then scooped him and his teething ring up to go sit by Daddy and Hana.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 06:18 am (UTC)(link)
Longshot eyed the floor for her teething ring. When he did spot it, it took some stretching and his monkey toes to flip it into his free hand. He blew on it with magic Daddy breath, brushed real well on his shirt, and offered it to his daughter.

"Missing this?"

Longshot won easily. He always did. But, Alison didn't mind. It just meant he was ready for their adult 'nap time' that much sooner. She entered the nursery behind him with Hana bouncing lightly in her arms.

"Nap time for little babies," she sang softly as she kissed Hana and settled her into the crib.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 11:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Aiden was already in his crib and tucked in. The teething ring had been left with him because he was still chomping away. Longshot was bouncing on the balls of his feet by the time Alison got Hana settled in the crib.

"Meetcha in bed!" And then he started stripping as he zipped upstairs. He had the idea she might like a husband naked and waiting for her.

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 11:25 pm (UTC)(link)
It didn't take long to get Hana settled. Alison left her a teething ring, also. No baby fights while Mommy and Daddy were busy!

Then she was racing after Longshot. She was down to her underwear by the time she entered the bedroom, looking for him.

"Honey, I'm home." She grinned.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 11:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Longshot was buck naked and sprawled across the bed. He hoped he looked as inviting as possible. He grinned at his wife only in her underwear. He gave her a taste of her own spastic finger gesture.

"I believe I'm something you want..."

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2008-09-05 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Alison looked him over like her was something very tasty. Mmmm. Naked husband. She grinned as she strolled slowly over to the bed, shedding bra and panties along the way.

"You are everything I want. Especially when you're naked."

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2008-09-06 12:07 am (UTC)(link)
Ali was getting a one body appendage salute on how her naked body looked. Longshot settled back and grinned.

"And I thought it was especially when I play with the babies..."

Why yes, he understood what turned up her hormones. Why do you ask?
