Baby Adie Series: Meeting the boys.
“She’s just so little.” Niall says leaning further into the back of the lounge.
Adie is asleep against Niall’s chest her hand gripped tightly around the neck of his shirt. The brown fluffy stuffed dog he got her, tucked underneath her arm pressed between the both of their chests. His hand continues to rub over her back that is covered in a pink floral onesie. As soon as I handed her over to her godfather she started to fuss, not liking that the arms she had been placed in weren’t familiar to her, but as soon as his hand started to rub soothing circles against her and he sat the dog down on her stomach she calmed.
“She’s a baby Niall.” Louis says from the opposite lounge in the room. “She was nearly three weeks premature, that’s why she’s smaller than what Lux was.”
The rest of the boys smile looking over at Adie, her hand giving a pull of Niall’s shirt in her sleep, only he keeps his eyes on her as the other boys divert theirs back to the football game on the television waiting for their turn to hold her.
“How is (Y/N)?” Liam asks during an ad break.
My eyes move up to look at the celling knowing that (Y/N) is asleep on the floor up from us. She was beginning to worry me with how often she was sleeping, but my mum was quick to assure me that she was the same after she had Gemma and I. That birth was tiring and a mother was sore and tired for two weeks afterwards.
“She’s sore and tired a lot, but my mum says that it’s normal.” I say looking over at Adie.
“Considering the size of Adie and the size of where she came out from.” Liam continues but stops when I give him a look. He wouldn’t like if I talked about Sophia like that.
After another five minutes Niall gently pries Adie’s hand from his shirt and shifts her into Liam’s arms, gladly not waking her up. Liam’s grip on her is shy and Zayn can’t help but whisper about it into my ear, his words causing me to chuckle lightly.
Out of all of us Louis had the most experience with babies due to all of his younger siblings. Niall had experience with Theo, Zayn was the godfather of Brooklyn and I was the godfather of Lux, Liam doesn’t have as much experience as the rest of us.
“Ok Zayn you can hold her now.” He says nervous moving to drop her down into Zayn’s outstretched arms, “She’s absolutely adorable Harry, I just don’t want to drop her.”
Zayn smiles as he holds Adie close to his chest, he moves his hand up to take hers in his, unfurling her small fist that has a leg of the stuffed dog gripped tightly in it. He presses his open palm against hers. The size contrast makes me pull out my phone to take a picture of her hand that doesn’t even cover a fifth of Zayn’s large calloused one.
Once Zayn has finished holding a now awake Adie that is trying to grab his tattoos he passes her over to Louis. She seems content as she rests in his arms, fascinated by the soft toy in her arms that Louis pulls away every time she goes to put it in her mouth.
“Louis she will start crying and wake up (Y/N) if you don’t stop.” I say to him as he does it again.
Just like I thought Adie starts to cry, her fist moving to her mouth as one hand is stretched towards the dog. As he realises what he’s done he gives her back the toy, Adie hugs it into her arms one hand still in her mouth as her head rests against Louis chest.
“Don’t worry sweetie, Louis’ just an asshole.” (Y/N)’s voice enters the room as she moves to pull Adie off Louis’ chest to rest against her own.
We all laugh at the shocked face Louis has as Adie begins to calm down her hand palming at the warmth of her mother’s chest. Niall moves out of the way and (Y/N) takes his spot next to me leaning into my touch as I press a small kiss to her temple.
“I am not an asshole, I just don’t have boobs.” Louis counters smiling at me as Adie continues to grab at (Y/N)’s chest, the dog still tight to her chest with her free arm.
