Everything was going well, and soon enough, they were able to bring the baby home. Ariadne was extra-excited, because even as nice as the hospital accommodations were, she really wanted her own bed and some of Arthur's cooking.

Of course, the baby never let her sleep more than three hours at a stretch.

She groaned, shifting to look at the clock. An ungodly hour of the morning, as she expected. But the baby's cries were coming in loud and clear over the monitor. She sighed and stretched.

Arthur woke up too when he heard the baby crying. He'd always been a light sleeper and mixed in with him always being alert, he sat up. "Want me go?" Arthur asked.

"Of course." He leaned down to press a kiss to her temple before getting up and walking down the hall to the nursery. The baby was fidgeting under her blanket so he slid it up and carefully lifted her into his arms. He rocked her a little before going downstairs to the kitchen and warming up the bottle in the microwave.

She stopped crying once Arthur started feeding her. "Good girl," he said softly. When she was done, Arthur grabbed a cloth and situated it over his shoulder before he started burping her.

After feeding and burping her, Arthur put Eleanor back into her crib. They'd need to wake up in a few hours when she needed her diaper changed, but no matter. He walked back into the bedroom and and got under the covers.

"Still perfect," he assured her, grinning.

"Mhm," he murmured.

He wrapped his arms around her. "You're welcome. How are you feeling?"

He nodded. "But you're not in any pain, right?"

"I know." He'd read about it anyway.

He grinned. "How ironic."

"I was thinking, if we start working again or if I do, we should hire a nanny," he suggested.

"Yes." While they were fine for now with the two of them at home day and night, it'd be harder to take care of the baby if they were busy with work.
