Your name is Lux Kaylee Morrow and you're a trauma surgeon at Kruger-Smith Memorial Hospital. You are 29 and single, too wrapped up in your job to think about a man. But, one day, in walks a handsome man, tall and tan with caramel brown hair and deep ocean blue eyes. He introduces himself as Dr. Sullivan Cooper Laurent, he's the new neurosurgeon at Kruger-Smith!
You convince yourself that there's no way Sully would ever go for you, but you flirt with him now and then anyways. One day, it's just you and he in the break room. You're talking for a bit, laughing and such. But then the conversation pauses. You maintain eye contact, intense eye contact at that. You've got a million thoughts racing through your mind in just the few seconds since you stopped talking; does he like me back? will he ask me out? will he ki-- your thought is interrupted when his lips touch yours. It's such a sweet kiss, but when he sees the clock, he realizes he's late for surgery. He apologizes and rushes off. You're left standing there, overwhelmed and happy all at the same time.
A few days later, Sully approaches you in the hallway and he asks you out to dinner, he mentions a nice Italian restaurant he loves. You say yes!
You are so excited for your date with Sully. Your best friend, Fiona Louise Underwood, helps you pick out the perfect thing to wear. You decide on something casual. (here). You love it! Sully shows up right at 7 o'clock, not a minute late. He comes to your door to get you, and he tells you how beautiful you look! He's looking quite handsome, too, in his nice blue suit with a yellow tie. (here). Throughout the night, he opens doors for you, pulls out your chair, and lets you go first. He's a true gentleman. He walks you back up to your porch at the night's end and kisses you goodnight. He asks to see you again, and you say yes!
You continue to date for quite a while!
After one and a half years of dating, you are absolutely smitten with each other. Sully proposes to you by giving you a notebook that listed all the reasons he wanted to spend his life with you, and the last page said, "Will you fulfill my dreams by marrying me?" (here). It's so sweet! And your ring is absolutely stunning, it's a jaw-dropping snowflake ring (here). You wonder if he had help picking it out, he did such a good job!
You are engaged for six months, and then you have your wedding! The venue you chose was perfect for you two, in your childhood backyard (here). Fiona is your maid of honor, and she helps you pick your dress. You select an innocent flowing ruffle dress (here). You look gorgeous in it, and your hair is perfect. He's wearing a handsome tux that you picked out for him, plus a tie that matches your wedding color. It's a fantastic wedding over all, one that exceeded your dreams for it! You take his last name.
You and Sully honeymoon to Milan, Italy for a romantic escape.
You and Sully have been married for three years. Work at the hospital is hectic, you feel like you might as well move in there for as little as you are home. Somehow, you and Sully manage to keep your love going, and he always makes time for you. You love how he still hasn't stopped being a gentleman to you.
One day, because of increasing suspicions you decide to take a pregnancy test. It comes up positive! You know it's going to be hectic for two surgeons to raise a kid, but nonetheless you are excited. You tell Sully by giving him a card that says "Hello, Dad." on it (here) and he's so excited to be a father. He tears up when he hears the news.
9 months breeze by and soon you're holding a baby boy in your hands! He's as handsome as can be. You and Sully talk it over and quickly agree on a name; he's most definitely a Jasper Elias Laurent (mn link didn't work, used fn for both). You and Sully have a perfect nursery waiting for him at home, it's a perfectly nautical nursery (here).
Life is good with Sully and your little son, Jasper! He's already three years old, you can't believe how fast time has gone by! You love his little blonde hair and deep ocean blue eyes. You and your husband start to miss having a baby around the house. Together, you two decide to try for baby number two!
It doesn't take long to get pregnant with a second baby boy! During your pregnancy, you re-decorate Jasper's bedroom into a nice neutral room with a cool little clubhouse bed. (here). He loves it! You also decorate a nice nursery for your coming baby boy, you pick a modern forest animal nursery (here). This pregnancy seems to drag by, and when month 8 comes around you are ready to be done. But he finally arrives, one week late! You love him more than words can describe. You and DH select the perfect name for him; Tate Sawyer Laurent! You're in love! He has caramel brown hair and green eyes.
Jasper is such a fantastic big brother!
Jasper is five years old and Tate is two when you and DH find out that you're pregnant with number three! Though balancing two kids, romance, and work is hard enough, you still manage to be excited for your baby. It's a third boy, which to be honest isn't that much of a let down, Tate is so excited to have another brother.
7 and half months later, you give birth to your little guy. He is small as he was born too early, but overall he is healthy. He's got the cutest grey eyes and blonde hair. DH has a big say in the name this time, he suggests Cameron Wesley Laurent and you agree. Jasper and Tate are so good with the baby, you know when they get older the brothers will be close friends.
Jasper is 10, Tate is 7, and Cameron is 5. You are at work right after dropping off the kids at school, as is Sully. A few hours into your shift, you are paged to the ambulance entrance. There's been a shooting at Lyons Avenue Elementary School, the kids' school!! The first stretcher is wheeled in, it's a teacher. You're terrified and frantically checking all of the hospital beds and ambulances come in. You're husband's doing the same thing. You see Cameron's kindergarten teacher sitting at the end of a bed getting her head looked at. You run to her and she assures you that Cameron is fine, that he didn't get hurt at all. She mentions she also saw Jasper as she was leading her class to the safe area and he had no visible problems. You feel relieved but still terrified, you are still searching for Tate.
A few minutes later, you see bright red converse tennis shoes sitting in the hallway. The same kind that Tate wore to school that day. You recognize them as his because of the little bleach spots from when he dropped a bottle of cleaner on them. You walk into the curtain right behind the shoes and see your little guy sitting there. He is getting stitches on his arm and he has a bruise on his head, but other than that he seems fine. He wraps his arms around your neck and doesn't let go, him crying into your neck and you into his. You finally let go and hold his hand while they finish stitching him up. He tells you what happened. He was on his way to the bathroom when everyone started running. He fell and got trampled by the older kids. He's got to stay the night at the hospital for a concussion, but he'll be just fine.
Your family takes the next few weeks to recover from what your kids went through. They continue to wake up with nightmares, but you and your husband are able to comfort them. One month to the day after the shooting, you find out that you are pregnant with your first daughter. You are overwhelmed and excited all at the same time, as is Sully. Jasper, who has been very protective of his younger siblings lately, is especially excited.
Nine months later, your little girl arrives! She's so beautiful, you love her so much. You and DH quickly settle on a first name you both love; Daisy. Jasper suggests Shiloh because it means peace, a big part of your life since the shooting. You and your husband agree that there isn't a more perfect name for your daughter, Daisy Shiloh Laurent.
Three more years have passed. You've got baby fever and you've got it bad. Daisy is already 3, making Jasper 13. You and Sully talk about it and decide it's time to try for number 5! He had always wanted a big family- you had been the reluctant one- but now you love it! You don't take long to get pregnant, and this time, it's with twins! One boy and one girl. You're a little worried for what Daisy will think when you tell her she's getting siblings, and when you do she can't wait! She really wants a sister and brother, it's like two real life baby dolls!
It isn't long before two beautiful babies join your family! They're amazing, you're so in love with them. Naming the babies is so much harder this time than anytime previous. It takes you a week of going back and forth, he wants Wyatt + Juno, but you want Axel + Leah. Finally, you come together and decide on Wyatt and Leah. You and Sully pick the middle names Tobias and Anastasia and in the end you're really happy with the decision you made, Wyatt Tobias Laurent and Leah Anastasia Laurent. No other name could have fit your little twins more perfectly!
