"I have a quick call to make," I tell him after he finishes giving me the tour of the house. I have a feeling that once my dear parents figure out I'm out of their lives for good they'll drop the custody idea. Or at least I hope they will. I couldn't bear to lose her now.
"Alright. Want me to go ahead and feed her? She's gettin' kinda fussy," He replies and I nod and get a bottle out of the diaper bag for him. I hand it to him and go out on the porch to make my call. I dial my mother's number and lean against the railing while I wait for her to pick up. It takes about five rings for the voicemail to click on and I gladly leave her a message, not really wanting to have to talk to her anyway. It would get the same goal accomplished. After I finish the message, I go back into the house and to the kitchen where I left them. I stop in the doorway and watch as he sings to her quietly, smiling at how sweet he is with her. As I watch them I think back to my life before I found out I was pregnant and how much everything had changed since then. Most of it for the better. I've got an actual family now, not just Rylee but Ryder and his family as well. I have a guy I know I can trust and that loves me as much as I love him. I have a beautiful home to share with them and a step-daughter that I absolutely adore. I've made new friends, but I still kind of miss the ones I left behind. But they can always come and visit. My brother and his girlfriend will be here in a couple days to meet his niece. I guess everything really does work out okay sometimes.
"Whatcha thinkin' so hard about over there?" He asks softly and I blink in surprise. I hadn't even noticed that he had walked over to stand beside me. I kiss his cheek and smile down at my now sleeping baby girl.
"Just thinking about all the blessings in my life now," I answer, laying my head on his shoulder as he wraps his arm around my waist and pulls me into his side. And thats right where I want to stay. In the arms of my cowboy.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has read and reviewed this story. I've been working on it for a long time and it really means a lot that you all liked it so much. I've started a new story that I hope you will like just as much called Georgia Rain. I hope you take a look at it and tell me what you think of it. ~Kentuckygirl145541
