It’s Leisure Day, so Ethan decides to throw a party. He invites all of his friends over to celebrate the summer. But, some uninvited guests showed up as well. Cosmo was being mauled by the paparazzi all night, but she didn’t mind, and one of their dear friends got a cramp in the pool and ended up drowning. The Grim Reaper was definitely not someone they wanted to see.

In the day’s leading up to the birth of their second child, Colten and Amie spent all their time with Kayden. They wanted to make sure he knew he was loved even with the arrival of the baby coming up any day now.

Image

 

That night after putting Kayden to bed, Amie went to watch TV and prop her feet up and relax. This was interrupted by some sharp pain in her stomach. She hollered for Colten, telling him it was time, their next child was about to come into the world. Colten left Kayden with his parents and rushed Amie to the hospital. The closer he got though, he started to get a pit in his stomach. He was reminded of how Kayden’s early life was, he didn’t want that to happen again, but he wasn’t sure how to change it. He didn’t have much time to worry though cause they got to the hospital and were rushed in.

After hours of hard and painful labor everything finally paid off, Amie gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Colten told her to name her whatever she wanted, he didn’t care. After a few hours, she finally decided on the perfect name, Carly.

Colten takes charge of taking care of Carly. He gets up in the middle of the night to change her diapers, and gets up early to make sure she is fed. Amie loves the way Colten is becoming. She is so glad she isn’t on her own this time.

ImageImageImage

 

After Carly was born, Colten and Amie tried to keep treating Kayden the same, but they knew things had changed. Having another baby caused them to be tired all the time from middle of the night feedings and they felt as if they started neglecting Kayden. He didn’t seem to notice because Cosmo and Ethan took extra care of him. He built great relationships with his grandparents, something Colten and Amie were extremely thankful for. As Kayden gets older they notice the similarities he has with his parents (like his mama’s weight problem). They put him on a special diet. They want to kick this in the butt soon. 

Image

 

Carly continues to grow as well, she is getting so big. Amie can hardly believe that it is almost time for her birthday. She doesn’t want her little girl to grow up, but she knows it is going to happen soon. She loves her perfect little family. She doesn’t want anything to change.

Amie continued spending all of her time with Kayden, teaching him how to walk and talk. She notices that Colten does nothing more than play with their pet snake Fangs. She worries that Colten isn’t happy with their family or that he doesn’t want to be a dad. She isn’t sure what to do, she just knows she wants some help.

ImageImageImageImage

 

Amie puts her worries and fears aside for now. She had a wedding to plan. When she wasn’t spending every waking moment with Kayden, she planned her perfect wedding. The night went flawlessly, from the exchanging of the rings to the cutting of the cake, Amie was so happy she almost completely forgot about all the things that had been going on the past few weeks. It was the best night of her life.

ImageImage

 

A few days later, Colten became an ideal father. He continued improving Kayden’s walking skills, and got up with him every night. Amie was shocked. She wasn’t sure what had happened but she didn’t care. She loved the new father Colten had become.

Image

 

Later that night, after Kayden was sleeping, Amie decided to talk to Colten about what had happened. She asked him why he wasn’t there during Kayden’s early life, but seemed to be all about the toddler life. He really didn’t have an answer, but Amie still didn’t care. She was so happy and so filled with love for her family that she decided to spend all night with Colten.

Image

A few days later, while cooking dinner, Amie got an upset stomach. It was her favorite meal, but the sight of it just made her want to throw up. She thought back to the night she spent with Colten… Could it be?

ImageImageImageImage

 

Yep she’s pregnant! She couldn’t believe it. She was so excited to add on to their family, but she then thought back to the first years with Kayden. She didn’t think she could do that over again. Especially with a toddler running around. She tells Colten the good news and he is super happy about it. But Amie tells him, he has to be more involved this time. She couldn’t do this without him. He agreed gratefully and hugged her. He couldn’t wait for the next member of his family to join them.

Colten and Amie are blessed with a new baby boy. He is healthy and happy and they decide to name him Kayden. Colten is filled with a new kind of love. He didn’t know he could love someone that he hasn’t known for a long time so much. He is in awe.

ImageImageImageImage

 

A few days after the birth of Kayden, Cosmo and Ethan age up. They are now elders both with the dream of some day retiring. With his parents getting older, Colten knows what he has to do for his family in order to stay happy.

ImageImageImageImage

 

He plans the perfect date, starting early on Saturday morning and ending late at night. His parents were watching Kayden while he has big plans for the day. After their first date after the birth of their beautiful son Colten pops the question. Amie was totally surprised and equally as excited. She knew she wanted to spend her life with him, but she was glad he wanted the same thing.

ImageImage

 

Taking care of a baby is a lot harder than Amie originally thought but she loves Kayden all the same. He makes her wake up in the middle of the night but seeing his cute face every time is worth it.

Image

With the planning of the wedding and all the late night baby calls, Kayden’s first year flew by. Amie throws her baby boy a party in order to celebrate. 

Image

 

Kayden is definitely mama’s little boy. They are best friends and Amie wouldn’t have it any other way. She just hopes that Colten has just as good of a relationship as they do.

After Prom, Colten comes out with a new friend. Her name is Amie and they really seem to like each other. She followed him home after prom to hang out even more. They stayed up all night talking and getting to know each other. Colten really liked her.

ImageImageImageImage

 

Colten and Amie were inseparable. They did everything together, movies, sporting events, festivals, you name it, they did it. Anyone who watched them together could tell they were really in love. As Cosmo watched Colten, she was reminded of how Ethan and her were when they first started dating. The thought of Colten getting something as amazing as her and Ethan had made her heart swell. She was so happy for them.

ImageImage

 

It’s been some wild and crazy years, but high school is coming to a close for Colten. He is so happy with the way his high school life played out. He thought back to how much his life would have changed if his parents hadn’t of forced him to go to Prom. He never would have met Amie. To this day Colten is thankful for his parents sending him. High School would have panned out so differently if he hadn’t gone to Prom.

ImageImageImage

 

Now that Colten was an adult, he asked Amie to move in. They never left their room. They cuddled and kissed and… Well let’s just say they did things that would eventually lead to…

Image

 

Pregnancy! Oh my goodness. Amie is pregnant. They aren’t even married yet. What would everyone think? Colten didn’t care. He was so excited when he found out. He started reading all of the pregnancy books he could get his hands on. As Cosmo watched from a distance, she was again reminded of her and Ethan. She smiled as she realized Colten is ending up exactly like his dad.

ImageImageImageImage

 

Before they knew it Amie woke up in the middle of the night to labor pains. She woke Colten up, but all he was good for was freaking out. He realized how unprepared he felt to be a father. He didn’t want to screw up a kids life. Amie told him to calm down. They would worry about that later. Right now they just had to focus on getting to the hospital to get their healthy baby out. Through all the intense hours of labor Colten was scared to death. He wasn’t sure if he was ready to be a dad. All these worries were swirling in his head, until he heard the first cries coming from his child.

Shawn and Amelia decide to take things slow. They aren’t in any rush and she has trust issues. After a month of dating, Shawn tries to go in for their first kiss, only to be rejected. He leaves their date heartbroken but still in love. He decides to give up on love and again throws himself into working on his musical talents.

ImageImage

 

After many wonderful years, it is now Danielle’s time to go. She feels bad about leaving Shawn at this point in his life. She really wanted to see him get married. But she is confident in what she is leaving Ethan with. She wishes she could have gotten to know Cosmo better, but she looks back on her life and smiles as she passes on.

ImageImage

 

With the passing of his mother, Shawn realizes that he can’t wait forever for what he really wants. Even though they haven’t talked in a while, he invites Amelia over and pops the question. He was afraid of being rejected again, but she graciously accepted.

ImageImage

 

Image

Amelia decides she can’t wait, and she doesn’t want to waste all of their money on a big wedding. So they decide to have a private ceremony in the front yard. Shawn didn’t care how it happened, he was just glad he could be with Amelia. They decide to move into their own house so they could get away from everyone and start their own family.

Image

 

Colten decides to go out trick or treating on Spooky Day. He dresses up as a gladiator and goes to all the rich houses because they give out the best candy. After a hard night running all over he gets home to discover…

ImageImage

 

SURPRISE! It seems it is Colten’s birthday and his family threw a surprise party. 

 

Image

 

For his birthday, his parents got him a guitar. Colten is so excited he goes to his room and gets right to work. He already feels like he knows more because he spent all of his early life on the xylophone. Colten works hard to gain more skills. His parents think he is getting to isolated and fears he will wind up alone. He wasn’t planning on going to prom, he wanted to stay home to play guitar all night, but they decide it would be best if he went and made some friends.

Image

Colten gets decked out in his dads old tux and heads off to prom. He isn’t excited, but how could this night turn out for our next heir? Will he come out with more friends? Or will this be the worst night of his life? There is only one way to find out, Colten thinks as he walks into the school..

After a hours in the hospital, Cosmo gives birth to a premature baby boy they decide to name Colten. She has to spend a few nights in the hospital to make sure Colten was okay, but they were finally released to go home. Ethan did everything he could to make them comfortable. He didn’t want anything more to happen to his little family. 

ImageImageImage

 

While Cosmo stays down, due to bed rest, Ethan and Danielle do  everything to help out with Colten. Ethan is grateful for Danielle, because she is able to take care of Colten while he is at work. Even though they didn’t have the greatest past, Ethan is still glad he has at least his mother around. He doesn’t know what he would do without her.

ImageImage

 

With baby Colten around, everyone seems to be forgetting about Shawn. He goes to Prom the night after Colten and Cosmo returned home and came back with a girlfriend. He becomes like Ethan did at this age and puts all of his time and effort into Katy. 

Image

 

Image

It doesn’t seem like it to anybody, but Colten is already turning a year old. He grows into a beautiful little boy. No one is sure where he got his blonde hair, but they love it so much. There isn’t much of a party, because neither Ethan nor Cosmo have made a big deal about their first. They don’t want him to be followed around by paparazzi. 

Image

 

After finding out that Katy had been lying about her age, Shawn makes the decision to break it off. (She became an adult while dating him) He spent most of his nights in his room alone. Then his mom surprises him one day with a new drum set. After playing for a few hours, he realizes what he wants to do with his life. From here on out he dedicates his life to learning every instrument he can.

ImageImageImage

 

Ethan continues to hold true to his promise to Cosmo. He does everything he can with Colten. They soon become best friends and Ethan doesn’t want it any other way. He loves Colten and Cosmo more than he ever imagined he could love anyone. He spends all his time at work, working hard to gain promotions and raises, and all his time at home, is with Colten, teaching him how to walk and talk, or with Cosmo, making sure she knows everyday home much he loves her. 

ImageImageImage

 

Before we know it, Shawn is becoming a young adult. He spends all his time alone, in his room working with the instruments. He throws a small party for his birthday which included some people he didn’t know. This is when Shawn meets Amelia. It was love at first sight and Shawn spends all his time with her. Could things be looking up for our forgotten child? How will things turn out for Ethan and his perfect little family? Things can only go up from here.

After months of planning, it is finally time for Cosmo and Ethan’s wedding. They exchange their rings and Ethan watches as his vows make Cosmo tear up. They were both so happy. They cut the cake and then danced the night away. They didn’t even notice anyone had left, they were lost in each other’s eyes. It was the perfect night. Ethan had been dreaming about it his whole life.

ImageImage

 

After the wedding, Ethan got a few day’s off from his job at the stadium. He spent every minute of it with Cosmo. His relationships with the rest of his family slowly diminished and Cosmo hated sitting back and just letting it happen. She tried to talk him into fixing things but he refused. “You don’t know what I went through. I can never forgive them for what they did to me all those years.” Cosmo felt awful. The thing Ethan didn’t realize is she did know. She had been by his side since the day he came home from the hospital. She just wished he could have seen how bad things were and how hard his mom tried. She is the only one that will ever truly know what that family went through.

Image

Now that Shawn was a teenager, he started to feel what Ethan had his whole life. His parents started not caring. He would stay out all night and no one would notice. He spent most of his time at the lake fishing. It was the only place he could truly go to get away from everything. He loved the feeling of peace he got from fishing.

Image

Image

 

Before they knew it, Cosmo was pregnant. She was overjoyed because she loved Ethan and she couldn’t wait to have a little baby sized him. The big shock however was the fact that Danielle was just as excited. She wanted to help with everything, even offering to take care of the baby so that Cosmo could get a job. Cosmo was confused as to why her mother in law cared so much about something that was going to be half of her. Danielle never seemed to like Cosmo.

ImageImageImage

 

Cosmo couldn’t wait till Ethan got home to tell him the good news. She blurted it out once he got in the door and she saw the same look on his face that he had the day they got married. This brought tears to her eyes and she jumped into his arms. Immediately Ethan started talking to her belly. He hugged Cosmo once more, leaning in and whispering in her ear “I am going to be the best damn dad ever to walk this Earth. Our kid is going to have the perfect life. I love you and I love that child inside of you. We are going to be great parents. I just know it.” Cosmo looked into his eyes and saw the genuine love he had for her and their child. She had no words, but whispered back “I love you.”

ImageImage

While Ethan was in one room, getting the greatest news of his life, Danielle was in the other getting the worst. She awoke that morning to find Hank not moving. He is usually up way before her getting ready for work. But this time he wasn’t. She tried to wake him up to no avail. She shook him, tears streaming down her face. She didn’t want to believe it, but she leaned down and gave Hank one last kiss before she finally excepted that he was dead. 

Image

 

Even though they weren’t close, Cosmo was still quite upset about Hank’s passing. She stayed up tossing and turning, wondering what her life would be without Ethan. The stress caused pain in her stomach. She wasn’t sure what was going on, but then it became even more intense. It felt like someone was punching her in the stomach. She started to get worried about the baby so she woke Ethan up and he rushed her to the hospital. They didn’t say a word the whole ride there. The car was just filled with Cosmo’s screams and Ethan’s sobbing. Both of them could only think of the worst and they both hoped they were wrong.
