Alfred's Journal 16

I do not own Hetalia okay? I am glad so many of you like this story. I don't have much else to say here so enough of this A/N, on with the fic!

November 11th 1917

(From the diary of Alfred F. Jones.)

Well I see why Nattie was twice as exhausted with this pregnancy than she was with Nikolai. We had twins today. A boy and a girl. Both Katy and Mattie said they suspected as such and laughed at my disbelief. They didn't at Natalya, but if I remember she didn't think there was twins. It's not like we can just see in there and know! And as with Nikolai, I was to stay by her side the whole time. So like last time, we sent Mattie to get Katy, and it took a little while longer than it did before because of his injury and the fact it was a cold rainy November day. I had to keep running back and forth making sure the gas was on well enough to keep her warm and to put up with her labor anger at me. Like she forgets that I never do anything like that unless she agrees and she has told me no plenty of times.

Well after awhile they finally showed up and Katy handled the midwifery duties. She seems to have a real knack for medical care and took over quickly. Mattie looked after Nicky while Nattie was in labor. After awhile, I lost track of the hour, the babies were born. My little princess first and a little brother as well. So today was little Anya Yvonne Jones and Ivan Fredrick Jones's birthday. We had decided that if it was a boy we'd name him after Vanya. I then asked Katy if she remembered any names her parents had planned if Ivan was a girl and she said 'Anya' so we agreed on that. As for middle names, those were actually some of Mattie's suggestions for names in the first place. Natalya didn't like Yvonne as a first name, but thought it okay for a middle. And since we both missed Vanya so much, and worry so much about what will become of him, it was only natural we chose Ivan for our little boy's name.

Once Katyusha said it was okay, Mattie brought Nikolai in and he seemed to take really well to his new siblings. If you saw Nattie's face in labor and when she was showing Nikolai how to hold Anya, you'd swear that she had a demon exercised from her. I just wish that Vanya was here for this. I am going to send him a picture of course, but it is not the same as being there. I know how much he lighted up when he got to hold Nikolai for the first time. God I miss him. At least Nikolai is looking to be a good and protective big brother and helping his mother with them. Although I don't think we will be trying for any more kids for awhile. I don't know how I could put up with a nearly broken hand each time.

So how was that? Good? Bad? Short? Long? Let me know in a review. And the idea for the middle names came from my fic Klondike where Matthew and Katyusha named their children after their brothers they hadn't seen in a long time. So anyway, remember to read (well you just did) and to review. Ciao for now,
