Still the one.

Alison woke at a reasonable hour and was only mildly ill. The morning sickness so far with her second pregnancy had been easier to handle than the first. She was especially glad for it on days like today. It was Valentine's Day and she needed to do something special for her handsome hubby.

Following tradition, Longshot had been up early and gone into the camp for his yearly chocolate haul. Despite being a happily married father of three (four soon), he still made out better than most single men in the country. They would be eating chocolate for weeks after the holiday.

While he was out, Alison bathed and dressed the twins in little Valentine outfits she'd bought for them. They got their breakfast and a little stuffed monkey each. Both were white with little red hearts on their palms and the bottoms of their feet. By the time Daddy returned home, there were two babies with slightly soggy stuffed animals and a picnic lunch for four waiting for him.

"Num num!" Aiden echoed and Hana quickly followed suit. They were raising a couple of parrots! Alison laughed and handed each baby a fourth of a sammich. Then handed Daddy his plate with a big sammich on it.

"Num num for everybody!" Alison grinned.

Longshot would only be worried when his kids requested to only be fed crackers. He took his plate with a big grin and started scarfing it down. Until he remembered his kids were right beside him. Then he ate like he was giving an example of the proper way to eat a big, tasty sammich.

The Cookie Monster impulse was hard to fight, but Longshot managed.

Alison appreciated Daddy's good example. But, the little cookie monsters were already busy getting jelly all over their little faces. She just smiled and shook her head as she dug into her own lunch. They could be cleaned up after dessert. The cannoli cream was sure to be just as well layered as the jelly.

Longshot got through his sammich, potato chips, and carrots with ease. He smacked his lips a little. His eyes were riveted on that perfect, round form. Oh, cannoli. How did he ever have a meal without you?

"May I have most of the cannoli?" he asked without taking his eyes off of the dessert.

"The two plain ones without chocolate on the edges are for the twins. The rest is yours."

There was a fair amount in the container. Alison knew her hubby's appetite for cannoli. She didn't share his love for it, so there was a piece of tiramisu for her instead. But, true to form, the little ones seemed to adore anything Daddy liked. So she made sure to have some for them, too.

"Ooooooh!" Longshot handed the cannoli out to his wee ones and eyed the ones left for him. Then he did his best imitation of the Cannoli Monster.

He did pause to give Alison a thumbs up. With cannoli cream on the tip of his nose. He ignored it and went back to devouring his precious cannoli.

"'oli 'oli 'oli!" Hana waved hers in a little fist while Aiden dug right in with happy, smacking lips.

Alison laughed and picked up her tiramisu. That nobody else liked! Muhahaha!

Longshot would let Alison have her icky coffee-flavored cake. He had cannoli. He grinned at his twins when he got down to his last two. He was gonna have a mighty full belly.

"Mmph. Real good, buttercup. The babies agree."

"I see that." Alison chuckled as she finished off her dessert. Aiden was finished with his cannoli and already on his feet, monkey in hand, as he made a break for the kiddie play area. Hana was a bit behind on her dessert. She still had half a cannoli left!

"Hang on there, little mister sticky face." Alison grabbed a pack of wet wipes and dashed after their fleeing son.

Longshot would have gladly chased after Aiden, but Alison seemed to be covering it. Instead, he put his arm around Hana and quietly cheered on her cannoli eating. That was his baby girl!

"Yay, Hana! Gonna show that tasty, tasty cannoli who's boss? You munch and show it!"

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2009-02-16 06:38 am (UTC)(link)
"Daddy!" Hana chirped happily and then resumed her cannoli munching. It was tasty stuff! She wiggled happily as the last of it disappeared.

Alison returned with a cleaner, but disgruntled Aiden in her arms. "Is there a Daddy who wants to chase a little man around a playground?"

"Ooh! Ooh! Me!" Longshot raised his hand and waved it. He kissed Hana on top of her head. "Hana needs a wipe down."

He was ignoring the bit of cannoli cream on the tip of his nose.

"Okay!" Alison handed grumpy pants over to his Daddy and then set to work wiping down the other little one. Daddy could run around with cannoli cream on his nose. It was his big day.

Longshot set his son down on his feet. He dusted off Aiden's non-dirty bottom.

"Now, you better get running, Super Froggie. 'Cause I'm gonna gethcu!" Longshot made tickle monster fingers. Then he was off after his screeching and giggling son trying to escape to safety.

Aiden's giggles made Hana giggle. Daddy was silly. Alison smiled and scooped her up, cradling Hana against her shoulder as she walked.

"Some little giiiirl is going to go on the swiiiing..." She sang at Hana as she settled the baby into the little harness swing and gave it a gentle push.

Longshot could, technically, easily catch his son and give him the tickling of his life. However, it was more fun to chase after the small blond tot as he ran around the playground.

Though on one pass of Alison, Longshot reached over and tickled his other baby. Or at least Alison's belly. Then he was off after Aiden who paused to see why Daddy was not a-chasin'.

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2009-02-16 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Alison laughed at the tickling. Silly husband. He couldn't even wait for the baby to be born before the tickle attacks began. She grinned and waved at Aiden before the tiny blond took off to run from his Daddy again.

Hana's little feet kicked in the air as her swing went back and forth. She babbled softly to herself. Alison could swear it almost sounded musical.

One thing about chasing someone much shorter than you, they can run right under things that would take you off at the hip. Aiden zipped right under some playing apparatus, and Longshot had to skid to a stop.

He would not be thwarted! He jumped from a standstill to the other side. He had to adjust his landing to not take out his own son, however. Longshot quickly scooped up Aiden before he had time to be scared and tickled the little boy like crazy.

Aiden blinked at sudden Daddy appearance. Then he squealed and laughed when the tickle monster attacked. He wiggled and squirmed in self defense.

Hana laughed from her peaceful swing.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2009-02-17 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
Longshot tickled him a bit longer and then put his son over his shoulder like a sack of potatoes. He held onto his son by his ankles and strode over to his laughing daughter. He squinted with mock-menace at her.

"Whachu findin' funny, baby girl?"

Meanwhile, he let Aiden slide and dangle along his back before pulling the wee acrobat back up to his shoulder.

"Daddy!" Hana squeaked and made grabby hands. It was her turn for tickles and tumbling! Her little feet kicked excitedly in her swing.

Aiden laughed and squirmed on Daddy's shoulder until Mommy sneaked over and scooped him up. "I stole the baby!" Alison grinned and rubbed her nose against her tiny son's.

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2009-02-17 02:15 am (UTC)(link)
Longshot gasped theatrically when he suddenly lost his son. Rather than turn around and search for Aiden, however, he walked forward and got his little girl out of her swing. He held her up and let her zoom about before bringing her in for snuggles.

"Run or dangle, baby girl?" he asked as he shifted his grip to be able to do either.

Alison cuddled Aiden to her and rocked him in her arms. He had hiccups from all his laughing! She smiled and patted his back gently.

Hana waved her arms. She didn't want to run. She wanted Daddy to hold her!

[identity profile] sonofarize.livejournal.com 2009-02-17 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
Arm flapping was not leg kicking. She would rather dangle to Longshot's mind. So he held her legs and carefully let her tip so she hung upside down. He slowly raised and lowered her.

"Where's my Hana? She flew away... like a bat." He looked down. "Ohp! There she is! Hanging like a bat!"

He shifted his grip to bring her right side up for some snugglin'.

[identity profile] light-in-sound.livejournal.com 2009-02-17 02:50 am (UTC)(link)
When she was right side up again and could reach, she grabbed at Daddy's face and gave him a big, sloppy smooch on the nose. He was the bestest Daddy!

"Awwww. Daddy's girl." Alison smiled at him over Aiden's little blond head.
