I apologise in advance. Two of my friends had a baby last week (yey, congrats to them!) so if there's a sudden rash of gratuitously cute C/A baby fics from me, that'll be why.

It was quiet when Abby arrived home. Too quiet.
This was the first time she had left Connor alone with the baby for more than half an hour, and she’d spent the entire afternoon worrying about what trouble he might have managed to get into.
The enthusiastic scatter of stuffed toys, blankets and baby bottles eventually led Abby to the bedroom.
Their daughter was fast asleep in the middle of their bed with Connor curled protectively around her, one tiny hand hanging onto his thumb like a security blanket.
Abby smiled and savoured the moment of quiet while it lasted.
