5 years later
"Daddy, its Christmas!" A five year old Dylan screamed running into his parents' bedroom, who was soon followed by a two year old, Sawyer Natalie Baker.
"I know it is you guys, but what did I tell you about screaming?"
"You said not too." Sawyer said sadly.
"That's right princess."
"Hey, Dad…where's Mom?" A very smart Dylan asked.
"I don't know bud, let's go find out." Julian said, picking up Sawyer and proceeding to look in all of the bed rooms, including the newly appointed room, the nursery
"Momma no here." Sawyer spoke up.
"I know, maybe she's down stairs." Julian said, he was somewhat nervous, but he knew that Brooke would be around somewhere. Low and behold, Brooke was downstairs in the rocking chair; the same rocking chair that she sat with Dylan some mere five years ago, but now one kid and one on the way later she couldn't be happier. Julian let go of Sawyer as soon as they got down the stairs, and the little girl ran directly to her mother into her mother's lap, causing Brooke to pick her up.
"Momma, Santa was here?"
"Brooke you know you shouldn't be picking her up." Julian said
"Babe, I'm fine, I'm not crippled you know?" Brooke said with attitude in her voice and Julian knew that he would just drop the subject. "Why don't you look under the tree Sawyer and tell me." Brooke said redirecting her attention to her daughter.
"Look at all of the presents." Both Sawyer and Dylan screamed.
"Guys!" Julian said, raising his voice ever so little. He couldn't be truly upset with them for this considering it was Christmas morning and he didn't mind giving them all of the gifts under the tree.
"Oh right…sorry Daddy." Sawyer said.
"That was real sweet of your princess." Brooke said bending down and giving her child a giant kiss.
"Come on Mom, I want to open presents now." Dylan said, the Brooke side of him coming out with his lack of patience.
"Go ahead you two." Brooke said, readjusting herself not only because she was starting to get uncomfortable.
"Hey there." Julian said, giving Brooke a kiss on top of her head; sometime after all of the gift unwrapping had been done and the kids were playing with their new toys; Dylan with his Iron Man action figure, and Sawyer with her Barbie's. Brooke and Julian were setting on the couch watching the scene unfold. Brooke was somewhat sitting on Julian's lap and he in turn was rubbing small circle over her ever expanding belly; this caused her to cuddle more into him.
"Hey there yourself mister." Brooke said, trying to strain up and give him a kiss back, but she wasn't able to, she couldn't hold herself up.
"You know…this Christmas may be great, but I can't wait till next one, when this little one gets here." Julian said, referring their third child in Brooke's stomach. "And you know…that I found you like that with Dylan too.
"I can't wait either. And yes I remember, but at least Dylan and even Sawyer never woke me up the way this one does; this one is constantly moving" Brooke said
"That is true, but that's only because she can't wait to come out and meet her awesome family and doesn't want to wait two more months."
"Yea, I guess you're right."
"I'm always right." Julian said with a cocky attitude.
"Yea, yea, yea." Brooke said yawning, despite it being only 7 am, she was still tired from not being able to sleep.
"You ok babe?"
"Yea just tired but I'm happy and that all that matters."
"Why don't you close your eyes and try to sleep before we have to go over to Haley's later?"
"Nah, I don't want to and besides we want to give you your present." Brooke said, as she was fingering the necklace she had around her neck, it was the same one that Julian gave her all of those years ago. "Go get it guys." Brooke said, causing the kids to leave the room, obviously Brooke couldn't put the gifts under the tree or it just might get lost or even Julian would see it and try to guess at it.
"Great this gives us time for me to give you your present." Julian said, revealing what was behind his back this whole time.
"Julian, I love it thank you." Brooke said as she looked at the frame in front of her. It was of their family. Brooke thinks Peyton took this at the park the last time the two families went because it was really good.
"Well, I'm glad you like it. I figured you could put in some where in the store."
"I'd love that and I know the exact place where to put it." Brooke said, finishing the end of the sentence kissing Julian.
"Eeeky!" Sawyer said and Dylan just covered his eyes.
"You're lucky that I don't want to get up off of Daddy, otherwise the tickle monster would be after you." Brooke said teasingly, and causing Sawyer to burst out into giggles.
"If you even can get up." Julian said under his breath smiling, but Brooke heard it and smacked him.
"Alright guys, why don't you give Dad his present?" Brooke asked, as she smiled when her kids tried to pull the box closer to where they were.
"I got it." Julian said, picking up the box with ease. He sat down and slowly started to open it, his eyes nearly bugging out of his head when he saw what he got, it was a brand new video camera and the poster that him and Brooke had when they first moved in together, but they couldn't find it since. "Brooke…how did you?" Julian asked, shocked.
"Well, I had the poster framed and laminated and then sent to Nathan and Haley's house. And the kids and I went shopping the other day while you were at work and they picked out a new state of the art camera that one's all on them."
"Thank you so much guys, I love it." Julian said, getting up and hugging the little ones and finally making his way back over to his wife of 6 years. "Brooke, I love it tons and I love you so much too. I don't know what I would do without you."
"I don't either, Julian. You make me whole." Brooke said, causing Julian to come down and kiss her passionately. The Baker family couldn't be happier at this moment.
