She kissed Bette on the lips and they both kissed their daughter’s forehead before the nurse took her to the nursery to be examined, weighed, bathed, footprinted and all the things they do with newborns before bringing them to the mother to be breast fed.
Bette and Tina took that opportunity to sleep for a few hours in the bedroom of the suite. They were awoken by the nurse bringing Angie back to them. Bette was on emotional overload having witnessed the birth but watching Tina breastfeed her daughter put her over the top. She cried, she laughed, she just couldn’t stop kissing them both and telling her girls how much she loved them.
By late morning they were ready for visitors. Kit and Melvin were the first to arrive. Never had Bette experienced such a heartwarming moment as when she put Angelica in Melvin’s arms and introduced her daughter; Angelica Marie Kennard-Porter to her grandfather. Melvin Porter’s heart swelled with love and pride as the tears fell unabashedly. He was instantly in love with the little 7lb baby girl that looked so much like Bette that she could have given birth to her.
In the first few weeks while Bette and Tina adjusted to motherhood and having a newborn at home Kit flew to Philadelphia with Melvin to attend to his legal business and to close-up his house. He would leave it to Bette to decide if she wanted to lease or sell her childhood home. He’d arranged for a few things of value to be shipped to California, but the rest of his personal property was placed in storage.
Kit visited her mother’s grave and met with the financial adviser while in Philadelphia. After taking care of personal business in Philadelphia they flew to Washington DC to meet up with David to help him pack up for his move. Now all three were back in Los Angeles and David was introduced to the rest of his family, including his new cousin. He too was smitten with the little girl that stole everyone’s heart.
The family sat out on the balcony of Bette and Tina’s beachfront condo having coffee and a generous slice of the Ultimate Granny Smith Apple Pie that Kit brought from the Planet. The Baker finally got the recipe perfected and with Melvin’s approval as the official taster it was now featured once a week. It wasn’t on the menu, but soon word of mouth had people asking for it.
