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.

Clio and Thea Browning celebrate their fourth birthday. They are both excited to start preschool the next fall and be at school with their sister Mavis. She told them sometimes she might have lunch with them, and they can’t wait!

Clio is outgoing, she is looking forward to building friendships in school. She also isn’t interested in stories like her Mom and brother; she loves science and experiments.

She takes after her Mom the most, but with her Dad’s coloring.

Isaiah Gavigan is turning 33, and Maeve decided to make him a cheesecake for dessert. She tries to interest Margot in the baking process, but she scrambles off as soon as Maeve turns her back.

Isaiah brings the rugrat back to the kitchen, but she’s really not interested in baking. Maeve tries to not have hurt feelings over it, but she’s always wanted a daughter to bake with, and she never considered Margot might not enjoy it.

Shira and Wyatt have the most difficult time adjusting to the new house and step-family. As much as Shira enjoyed her new sister, Elodie, sometimes she wanted peace and quiet. Asher never grated her nerves the way Elodie could without doing anything in particular; she wasn’t sure if it was a twin thing or an Elodie thing.

She talked during movies too, they both loved reading and movies, and Elodie talked through them entirely. How could one enjoy a film if you prattled on the entire time?

Elodie’s nerves were fraying as they arrived at Waverly Gardens. She was apprehensive about the union, and feeling melancholy for her Mom who was sitting at home alone; she didn’t even have Gulliver their dog since he passed.

Quint complimented Elodie as she walked over. He knew this day was a struggle for everyone, including himself. There was an underlying pathos amongst them all even as they tried to be happy for the moment.
