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.

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.

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!

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'.

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.

Longshot blinked at the smooch on his nose. It seemed to have gotten the bit of cannoli cream there, too. He grinned and kissed Hana's cheek. Then he snuggled her tight.

"By dose be web, Abi," he reported dutifully to his wife. When Hana was lulled into that false sense of security from snuggles... the tickle monster attacked! Mwahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
