“Daddy?” Joe whimpered as his pushed open the door to Andy’s bedroom. Andy awoke when Joe climbed into bed with him. “Daddy, don’t feel good.”
“What’s wrong, sweetheart?” Andy asked, concerned as to why Joe was upset.
“Tummy hurts,” he whimpered in response. Andy frowned at Joe’s being upset. He opened his arms up to Joe and his baby crawled into them and immediately cuddled into his embrace.
“Where does it hurt, Bud?” Andy questioned, bringing his hand up to rub circles into Joe’s belly.
“There, Daddy,” Joe answered. He snuggled further into his daddy’s arms, enjoying the attention he was receiving.
“Do you feel better?”
“Yes, Daddy,” Joe mumbled, eyes drifting closed. Andy rubbed his baby’s tummy until he was fast asleep, dreaming of places far, far away.
