sleepswthdemons: (Phoebe and Baby)
[personal profile] sleepswthdemons
Phoebe and the twins were now at home, which meant there was probably a couple of very excited and attentive daddies in residence as well.

Both Panthea and Persephone seemed to be cheerful babies -- when they were awake.

Which meant that there was plenty of welcome smiles for family and visitors.

"I think she looks like me," Cole said, holding Persephone and marveling how perfect and wee she was.

Sam had Panthea in his arms and almost seemed afraid to breathe in case it disturbed her. "She's definitely got my smile," he said decisively, grinning from ear to ear. "But they're both gorgeous, just like their mommy," he added.

And both of her daddies, too, but he wasn't about to get their daughters into the bad habit of being egotistical, was he?

Phoebe smiled at them both from where she was laying down on the couch.

"They take after their daddies, too."

"They're the cutest babies ever," Cole crooned to Persephone. It was quite possible he was completely besotted already.

It should probably be pointed out that if Sam had been holding Persephone rather than Panthea he would have said the exact same thing that he just had. And it was obvious that he was just as besotted as Cole was.

"Who're our gorgeous girls, huh?" he asked, brushing his fingers against Panthea's cheek and grinning over at Persephone in Cole's arms -- and then at Phoebe. "Is it too early to give them some of their Christmas presents?"

Some -- because it was a miracle the Christmas tree hadn't completely drowned in the pile of gifts.

Phoebe laughed softly. "I think they can wait a couple of more days, Anders. Let them get used to being home first."

She was enjoying watching them with the twins.

"Do you like your room?" Cole said to Persephone, tickling her under the chin. "Your other daddy and I worked really hard to make it nice and pretty for you."

"Your other daddy's a goof, isn't he?" Sam asked Panthea conspiratorially. "Look at him and your sister. You like being home now? Yeah? We're glad you guys made it in time for Christmas."

"Why do I think two little girls are going to be spoiled before they can even crawl?"

Cole frowned and looked down at the carpet. "Do you think we should replace the carpet?" he said. "Something softer for their hands and knees when they start crawling?"

"I actually have a sample book in the study," Sam admitted sheepishly, and Panthea opened her eyes and gurgled at him. "Oh, you like that idea, do you?"

Panthea gurgled again and reached one tiny arm out in Phoebe's direction, so Sam got up, rocking her, and went to sit on the edge of the couch. "Guess that means you want a say in picking out the new stuff then, kiddo."

"The carpet is brand new," Phoebe said calmly.

Cole sat down on the floor, his back against the couch so that Phoebe could reach down and touch the baby if she wanted. "All right, it seems soft enough," he said. "But if they show any signs of rug burn, we should replace it."

"Besides," Sam added in a serious tone, "by the time they're old enough to crawl it won't be brand new any more."

Phoebe shook her head as she reached own to stroke Persephone's head softly. "You guys are doing it again."

Cole blinked at Phoebe. "Doing what?" he said.

"Doing what?" echoed Sam. Deciding the edge of the couch was (despite his perfectly steady position) too precarious for him to balance on with Panthea in his arms, he followed Cole's lead and sat on the floor against the couch, within Phoebe's reach. Panthea squirmed, and he asked, "D'you think we're doing it again, baby girl? D'you know what 'it' is?"

Phoebe grinned as both of the twins gurled at their fathers in unison.

"Going overboard in being protective about things," she explained. "And now you two are out-voted on things. There are three of us girls now. Aren't there, ladies?"

Cole gave Persephone a shocked look. "No, no, tell her she's wrong," he said. "You're daddy's little girl, you're on my side, right?"

Sam's eyes had widened when Phoebe made her point, and he tickled Panthea's stomach gently with one finger. "Yeah, you're with your sister and me and your other daddy, right, 'Thea?"

She smiled at him, but no gurgling this time.

"Uh oh."

Phoebe giggled. "Exactly. I've been outnumbered for awhile now, so it's your turn to be so."

The twins and Phoebe had idenitical smiles on their faces.

"Even when they're babies, you can't beat a Halliwell woman."

Cole slumped against the couch (while still keeping careful hold of the baby in his arms, of course). "Their first demon vanquished at the tender age of three days," he sighed dramatically.

As it happened, right as he was saying that Sam was saying, "That's my kids -- could teach the Colonial Fleet a thing or two about dealing with the Cylons, and they don't even crawl yet."

He craned his head up to look at Phoebe and grinned. "You girls are gonna be unstoppable."

Phoebe giggled some more at their reactions. "But you love us."

"That's right, we looooove you," Cole crooned goofily to Persephone. He turned his head toward Phoebe. "Sorry, sweetheart, you have competition for attention around here now."

Date: 2008-12-24 05:01 pm (UTC)

Sam laughed and nudged Cole with his foot. "It's not competition. It's a challenge for us to be more attentive." He rocked Panthea, bent his head toward her, and asked, "Isn't that right, little girl? Yeah, you know your daddy's right about that."
