The Nursery, Sidra, Glacia, Tuesday (Fandom Time)
"One more time," Karla said, massaging her temples and counting backwards from ten. "The rule is...?"

Morton and Julian glared at one another before sullenly reciting, "We don't get to fight over the baby."

"Especially...?" Karla couldn't believe that she had to go over this with them. Again.

"When we're holding the baby."

"What happens when we do?"

"We lose baby-holding privileges for the rest of the day," they intoned. With another dirty look at Julian, Morton stepped forward and handed Kayla to her mother. "He started it," he muttered, loud enough to be overheard.

"Did not."

"Did too."

"Did not!"

"Did too!"

"Did n--"

"I swear by the Darkness, I will make it a whole week if the two of you don't stop bickering immediately!" Karla snapped, which caused Kayla to immediately begin fussing. Karla gave them both Look what you did! glares. "Shh, shh, shh, it's all right, baby girl," she soothed, jerking her chin towards the door so the idiot males she was stuck with knew to let themselves out. "Don't cry, little one, it's okay. Mommy's gotten rid of the morons." Karla sat on the rocking chair that Dinah had given them and gently rocked until Kayla settled down and fell back asleep. "Here's hoping the rest of your aunts and uncles know better," she said, since emails, texts, and other various kinds of notifications had gone out, apprising all and sundry that the estate was now open for visitors who wanted to meet Kayla. "Or that they all visit one at a time so no fights break out. Because this is apparently my life now. Refereeing squabbles over who gets to hold the baby." She pressed a kiss to Kayla's forehead. "Wanna see if Mommy and Daddy's high school friends are better at sharing than their Court?"

Help yourself to food, drink, and conversation with other folks from the island and beyond while you wait for a chance to visit with Karla, Warren, and Kayla in the nursery!

Leda had called ahead to make certain it was a good time. She had somewhat eclectic experience at the whole parenting thing, but she did know that people dropping by unexpectedly could be a mixed blessing.

Then she showed up with a few lullabies in her head and the smallest stuffed Jackalope she could find (the antlers made for great hand-holds for tiny hands).

Raven didn't need to wait to visit Kayla and the new parents, since she lived there and all, but she was outside the nursery to visit with friends. And keep an eye on Morton and Julian. Troublemakers.

She wasn't wearing a shirt with "The Kindness" on it, but she was thinking of getting one.

Hush.

"Soooo..." Dinah had specifically tracked down Raven to say hi and give her news a few hours later, and now she was waffling. "Hi. I have some news. Don't freak out?"

Raven eyed Dinah. "You are not pregnant, are you?"

It wouldn't be fair if she was. She wanted a baby next!

Kakiko looked from the door of the House to her husband. "/Are you sure this is the place, Papa? It seems a little... not our Karla-chan./"

"/According to the directions that the young man at the inn gave us,/" Hachizou shouldered again the bags he was carrying and took her hand. "/Let's give it a try?/"

A moment more of consideration and then Kakiko nodded and they moved forward to knock at the door.

As First Escort and a member of the Queen's inner triangle, it was not Morton's job to open the door. Far from it, in fact. But right now, everyone was a little on edge, which meant that the first face that any visitor saw was intending to belong to one of the very powerful males who defended and protected their Queen and her daughter with their every breath.

It was quite a scowling and forbidding face when it was first turned onto them. And then it was rapidly transforming into a confused and slightly taken aback face as Morton registered just who was at the door. "Akast--Akustu--Acatsumi--" He gave up on trying to pronounce their names right and settled for a polite bow. "Welcome to the estate," he said. "I don't think Karla knew to expect you. She'll be so pleased to see you both, welcome!"

So that would be Dinah knocking on the door a day or so after events in New Gotham City.

Was it okay to just show up? ...well if it wasn't, she could probably hang out at the pub with a few of her war buddies.

Knock knock?

"Come in," Karla called softly from the nursery.

She didn't bother asking who it was. Even if she couldn't sense Dinah (and she very much could), no one who had fought their way through Karla's entire Court would pause to knock.

There was no way that Cassidy wasn't going to come as soon as she heard Karla had delivered her baby and that both mother and daughter were fine.

She hadn't been worried. Not at all. Really.

She was waiting as patiently as she could and talking with friends that she recognized.

Kayla is wearing her I Have The Best Auntie onesie. Because Karla knew her audience. Because Kayla is so tiny, Warren and Karla are keeping the number of people in the nursery at one time to a minimum. But hey! That means no fighting over who gets to hold the baby!

"Well look at you." Leda smiled at the infant. Her voice did not have the cutsey tone many people adopted when speaking to babies, but it was definitely softer and maybe just s touch higher. In Elvish she added; "I pray you use your power of cute only for good."

"You'd better not already be carrying tales about what her Mommy got up to in high school," Karla teased, looking up to give Leda a soft smile of hello. "No tattling on me before I have a chance to get my excuses straight."

"So... I'm not nervous, are you nervous?"

Warren was nervous, so help him. It was one thing when their visitors were people from around the estate. It was another thing entirely, opening the place up to a potential parade of people who would come in and cradle and talk about and talk to their baby, and Warren had spent a lot of the morning pacing a little at the thought.

"I mean, there's nothing to worry about. She's perfect. Two feet, ten toes. Two hands, ten fingers. One nose, two ears, probably the cutest little cheeks in all of Kaeleer..."

"They can't be any more ridiculous than the idiots we live with," Karla grumbled, holding Kayla a little closer. "There's no reason to be nervous at all. Right? Right."

It was entirely possible that they were nervous. But shh, don't tell.

"...You don't think they'll comment, do you?" Karla asked, circling around the elephant in the nursery. "I mean, she is perfect, of course she's perfect, but..." Karla bit her lip.

When Warren was listing off body parts, there were two very glaring omissions, after all.

Hannibal wanted to visit and to gossip information-gather, so he came promptly.

He was very disappointed she wasn't wearing the onesie he'd painted. Very disappointed, Karla!

But he was smiling anyway. "Hello." He smiled and nodded at Karla and Warren. "How are the three of you?"

Re: Visit the nursery

You were outnumbered by aunties, Hannibal! And besides, that onesie was in the laundry because she'd worn it already. You're welcome, Hannibal.

"Kiss kiss," Karla said, dimpling up at him. "I'll trade you, a baby for coffee."

Look, it was Hannibal. He probably had some kind of magic, fancy coffee that was ground by virgins under the light of a full moon or something!

"And don't growl," she said, giving Warren a saucy wink. "Since we both know it'll only be because you didn't think of it first."

While waiting their turn, Mrs Akatsutsumi had already twice had to grab her husband's arm and pull him away from examining armor and weapons.... How firm was that 'one-at-a-time' rule, Karla?

And if the answer is 'very', could you maybe assign someone to Mr Akatsutsumi? Probably best to be a healer...

They were more than welcome to come in together, as they'd see when Karla opened the nursery door at their arrival to grin at them both. "Kiss kiss!" she said, beaming. "Hello! Welcome to Glacia! I'm so sorry--if I'd known you were coming, I'd've sent someone to greet you!"

Ender and Ben who had totally not missed this post yesterday had had some trouble clearing things with Portalocity, but now they were here.

Ender might've been smiling. Ender's eyes might also have been a little red. Children - especially his friends' children - had that effect on him.

So of course "she's beautiful" was the first thing to make it out of his mouth. Because she was.

Ben rested his hand on the small of Ender's back and smiled down at the little girl. "Hello, Kayla," he murmured.

When visiting my best friend soon after his second child was born, I'd be holding the baby and he'd offer to take him.

Me: That's okay, you get to do this all the time, I don't.

I love how parents are always like, "Here, let me take him back. You're probably tired of him."

I'm always like, "NOOOOOOoooooOOooooOOO!! I Just got him!" *snarl*

I know! :D Though a problem occasionally arose, in that, he'd often fall asleep when I was holding him, and they were trying to keep him on a schedule. I was like "Sorry, apparently I'm the wrong person to hold him if you want him awake."
