Or was it the other way around? Sam wouldn’t put it past Karen to flip the babies in their cribs. But pink was supposed to be Elisa.
“Hello little Elisa,” Sam whispered picking his daughter up. “Ready to meet your aunt?”
The infant giggled her her father’s arms wiggling. Definitely Elisa, Sam nodded. Elisa loved to be held and always had the biggest smile on her face. Not that Evelyn didn’t enjoy it too, but she was more somber and seemed to watch the world more wither her big eyes. Less of a wiggler.
“Let’s just get you fed and then we’ll wait for Auntie Izzy to come by.”
Life had been a lot more hectic after they brought the twins homes. It seemed that they would get one girl fed and changed and down just in time for the other one to wake up. Sam wouldn’t change a thing for the world thought.
Izzy knocked and Sam hurried to let her in.
“It’s weird knocking on the door,” she said by way of greeting, frowning slightly. .
“You don’t have to, you know.”
“Yeah, but it’s weird just walking in too. Anyway. Where are my neices?” She asked greedily and pushed her way inside. Sam sat down while Izzy acquainted herself with Evelyn and Elisa.
“Elisa is the one in the pink bassinet,” Sam said helpfully.
“You should really dress them in different clothes or something.”
“Karen would flip their outfits around, I’m sure.” Sam chuckled. “She want me to be able to tell them apart by sight.”
“I’m getting there. They have pretty different personalities.” Sam watched his sister coo over the kids. He wondered if she wanted her own some day. “How’s work?” he asked?
“Well, enough. Oh – I met one of dad’s fan’s the other days.”
“Really? Were they ancient?”
“Pretty young, actually. They came into the bar and recognized the last name. They were pretty fun to talk to.”
“And your roommates?”
“I’m moving out at the end of the lease,” she sighed. “Meghan’s moving in with her boyfriend and Charlotte took a job in Oasis Springs so I can’t afford the place myself.”
“You’re welcome to stay here.”
“And babysit all the time? Nah.” Izzy smiled. “Plus the commute would kill me. But you and Karen should drop by sometime, I’ll give you a drink on the house.”
“We’ll do that.” Sam promised.
Izzy didn’t stay long, both of them had work later and Sam wanted to make sure the girls were settled before Karen came home. Izzy didn’t know it, but she left just in time. Sam heard the cries from the nursery.
The girls actually obeyed him and were quite until Karen came home.
Author’s Note: I know it’s short. I’ve got a lot of half ideas floating around for this family, but I’m not entirely sure yet how they’re going to work together. I honestly can’t remember which infant is which, but once they become kids, it gets a bit easier as they’re not quite so identical.
