Births

october birthdays 2031

Marta Steele arrives at the hospital for her scheduled delivery. Nothing has been happening, and Dr. Morgan is concerned Marta’s advanced age may be delaying things in the birthing department.

They wait all day, labor pains coming, but not nearly productive enough. Marta and her Mother begin going stir crazy waiting for the baby to arrive. Marta’s Dad, Walter has decided to stay home as was the custom when Marta was born. He really sees no reason to change custom, so he’s still not come around on his daughter having a baby from a donor. “Whatever happened to meeting a man and settling down?”

Marta cares, but she can’t focus on her crazy parents. She’s having a baby for pity sake!

Her Mom, Alberta isn’t exactly thrilled with the circumstances; it’s all so modern and confusing. However, she is thrilled to have a grandbaby while she’s still alive. She really didn’t think this moment would ever arrive.

narrated by: Brooklyn

We’ve been trying for a second baby since the previous year. We were hoping to have a baby born in the summer, and now that summer they’d have been born is pretty much at its end. Colleen keeps us busy though with her high-energy. She absolutely adores Roux, and I believe it’s mutual.

never too old to dream

Eva Prince (56 years), Gideon (49 years), Dahlia (11 years)

Most of our days are routine, Gideon is working on a new research grant letter. His previous horticulture project at the university has completed, and he’s ready to tackle his next big questions. He loathes this part of the job the most. I can’t say I’m terribly fond myself, as he stays up late into the night, and I don’t like going to bed alone.

I usually spend my evenings with Dahlia. Even though she’s eleven, she still enjoys cuddling with her Mama, and I’m not complaining.

For years, Dad has been promising Mom an escape to Queen Victoria Isle, and I’m not alone in thinking it’d never happen. And I wish I had been right. Dad surprised Mom with the trip one night at bedtime.

april birthdays 2031

It’s two in the morning when Lauren can’t ignore her contractions any longer. They get checked in quickly enough, then Isaac is holding her and massaging her back as the contractions come.

It’s just past four when Dr. Morgan says it’s time to push. Lauren had second doubts about this whole delivery bit, and Isaac was barely holding himself together.

Millett Family

working toward the future

Hadley Millett (29 years), Rosabella Steinman (28)

narrated by: Hadley

Rosabella and Trey have been dating about two years, and while he may be interested in marriage, she isn’t quite there yet. Which is a relief to me, first because I don’t want to hunt a new roommate, and second, because neither of them can cook; she’d likely die.
