Rose and Miles are expecting again! And this time, there is no question in Miles’ mind that its his.
Miles was ecstatic when Rose told him. They’ve been trying, but the first couple of times they had failed to conceive.
Rose shares the news with Solomon. “A baby? Can I have a baby brother?” asks Solomon. “It’s up to the masters in the sky,” replied Rose. (Just eat some carrots Rose). “What if its a girl?” Rose asks him. “Eww, I want a brother!”
Miles puts together a baby shower for Rose since she never had one when Solomon was on the way.
Solomon was so eager to show everyone his brother in his mom’s belly. “I can feel him kicking!” he squealed. Rose Just smiles down at him.
Solomon even bragged to everyone when he and his mom volunteered at the bake sale.
Uh-oh, Rose is going into labor. Miles is having preparental panics, running around the house.
“Honey, why don’t you get us some milk,” suggests Rose. Rose knows Miles wants to be there to help with the delivery, but as panicky as he is, he was better off someplace else.
Rose hoped she’d have the baby before Miles got home. His preparental panics weren’t helping the situation at all.
Come on Rose, one more push!
It’s a girl! Miles gets back home to see his baby girl (he didn’t bring the milk by the way).
Solomon, came in after school and upon hearing the news of the baby’s arrival he goes to greet his brother. Or so he thinks.
“Hi, baby brother! I’m your big brother.” Rose comes in and tells him he had a baby sister instead.
“I don’t want a sister!” With that he storms off to his room. Rose and Miles were trying out different names for their new daughter. After a couple of names that neither one of them liked Miles says, “What about Arethusa?” “Hmmm, interesting,” says Rose, “what does it mean?”
“An apricot colored, rare rose,” Miles responds. “I like it. Baby Arethusa,” she says smiling at Miles and their new baby.
