Kurt smiled as he saw everyone get excited to learn the babies’ names. He didn’t expect Santana to get so choked up when they revealed Tracey’s middle name. Mercedes slipped in, next to him. “So, you named your daughter after Santana,” Mercedes muttered under her breath so that only Kurt could hear her. Kurt tensed up, turning towards her. “Mercedes-” “No, it’s fine, it’s fine! You replaced me for Berry and now it’s Santana. No, that’s fine. I can see now how it is.” Kurt frowned, taking Mercedes’s hand. “First of all, I didn’t replace you for She Who Must Not Be Named. You’re the one who suggested that we invite her to our sleepovers in high school and as far as I was concerned, we became a trio instead of a duo. And yes, we did become closer over the years but you were always more important to me than her. I love you boo and nothing or no one is ever going to replace you in my heart. As for Santana, she has been there for Blaine since the beginning. Especially when I wasn’t a very good fiancé to Blaine during that whole… fiasco. But I promise you that doesn’t mean that you won’t have a very special place in the triplets’ lives! And… you’re just teasing me, weren’t you?” Mercedes smirked, causing Kurt to roll his eyes. She immediately hugged him. “I’m sorry, I just had to but I thought you were just going to tell me to not be so touchy. I know you love me and I love you, too!” Kurt just smiled, feeling relieved that his best friend wasn’t upset. “And for the record, I don’t think you should blame yourself for what happened. I know you and I know you would do anything for your husband and babies. Don’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.” Kurt just gave a quick nod, chewing on his bottom lip so he didn’t tear up anymore than he already was.
Blaine grinned at Santana’s comment, knowing she didn’t really mean it. His attention immediately snapped to the baby monitor when he heard a small cry. He look down at the screen trying to figure out who might have woken up. He let out a small sigh of relief, when he saw they were all still asleep. He bit his lip wondering if one of them were having a nightmare. His eyes darted to the door as he tried to come up with an excuse to leave. “Buddy, you can’t jump to their aid every time they make a sound” Burt reassured suddenly from beside him. “But they-” Blaine pleaded. “They’re fine, still asleep too. Going up there now will wake them up and then you’ll have three cranky babies” Burt reassured resting his hand on Blaine’s shoulder. “They are still so tiny though, what if one of them stop breathing or they get to cold?” Blaine panicked. “They wouldnta let them leave the hospital if that was still possible” Burt reassured “Besides you don’t think I thought the same thing when we first brought Kurt home? He was so small, and I swore I was gonna protect him from anything. But look at him now?” Blaine glanced over at his husband with a smile. “I guess I get what your saying” Blaine conceded.
