Ziva was having a very bad day. Her mood swings were all over the place, one minute she would be happy the next she would be yelling at everything about anything. Anything would set her off. Gibbs felt a little bad for Tony but should have known what he was getting himself into when he started this relationship. Again Gibbs thinks this is why he had rule 12 but he also knew that if anyone would break this rule it would be them but there was also Abby and Tim. That was another story; Abby’s pregnancy was going along fine no mood swings too bad any ways. Tim was keeping her happy, not that Tony was not keeping Ziva happy, and he was. Giving her whatever she wanted when she wanted it, even if he was in the middle of something.
“Yes, sweet checks?” He smiles at her, she had a scowl on her face holding up the lunch he had packed her this morning.
“What is this?”
“It’s your lunch.”
“I don’t want it.” He sighs.
“Zi, I asked you what you wanted this morning and I made it for you.”
“I know but I don’t want it anymore.” He grabbed a pad of paper and a pen.
“What do you want?”
“A pizza, with cheese, peppers, ham, mushrooms and pickles.” Tony made a face.
“Yes. Is something wrong?”
“No, honey. I will get right on it.”
Twenty- five minutes later two pizzas came, Ziva’s and one for the others. After lunch the team got a call out. Tony and Tim leave with Gibbs. Ziva was on desk duty, she hated it but if it was for the baby she would do it. After a few minutes of being alone she is bored, so she makes her way to Abby’s lab. Walking in her stops when she hears nothing. Walking in Abby is at her computer reading something. There are head phone on her belly. Abby is in to this new thing where she puts head phones on her belly so the baby doesn’t hear about all the death the deal with all day.
“Abs, what are you doing?”
“Oh hey Ziva. I am looking into the dead Marine the guys are with.”
“Oh, what have you got?”
“Nothing that is the thing, I can’t find a single thing as to why someone would have killed him.”
“Oh, what’s baby McGee listening to today?”
“Aw good choice.” Abby smiles.
“What are you doing done here?”
“I am bored of paperwork.”
“Yeah, I know the feeling. I have to train my new assent.”
“Oh, that should be fun.” Abby pulls a face.
“No, not really. I don’t want one.”
“Abby, you need help and after the baby is born you’re not going to be here for a while. Someone has to help the team.”
Abby sighs folding here arms across her chest. “I know, but I don’t have to like it.”
Ziva laughs. “What’s so funny?” Gibbs asks walking in. Both women turn and look at him.
“Nothing, we were talking about Abby’s assent.”
“Oh, well here is something for you to process Abs.”
“Don’t you have paperwork to do Ziver?”
She sighs, “Yes, Gibbs. Bye Abby.”
Ziva walks back up to the bull pen. Tony and Tim are at their desk fighting again. Rubbing her belly “Your daddy is getting into trouble again with Uncle McGee.” The baby kicks. Ziva laughs.
“Guys! What is wrong this time?” Both men look at her.
“Hey sweet checks, how are you and the baby?”
“I am fine but the baby is upset that her daddy is fighting with her Uncle McGee.”
“I have a feeling that is all.” Tony laughs.
“Tony was being unreadable.”
“No I was not you were!”
“DiNozzo, McGee! Get to work now!” Gibbs yells. Both men hurry to their desk and get to work. Ziva gets back to hers as well. At five that night, Gibbs sends them home. He cheeked in on Jen and she was having a hard time with the twins and he needed to help her. They have been colicky and would only really calm down with him, Jen was having a hard time with that. He knew she was crying a lot and getting frustrated. Maybe he would have Ziva and Abby come over and help her. That was a good idea.
The one upside about being pregnant was that Ziva wanted sex ALL the time! All Tony had to do was walk into the room sometimes and she wanted to jump him, Tony was willing to help her out with this. Ziva tried to control it so she would not tire him out too much. If she did Gibbs was going to be mad at her, not that he could head slap her, he would never hit a pregnant women so Tony would get it for her. Turning her head she sees Tony naked trying to get his breath back, she smiles. Today had been one of the days were she did jump him.
“You’re going to kill me.” Ziva laughs.
“Tony, are you saying you can’t keep up with me?”
“No. I can keep up with you; it’s just now your hormones are all over the place and I need some breaks, you know.”
“Ok, well when you are done wining we are hungry.” He sighs.
“Yes, honey.” Rolling on her side, she leans down.
“Tony, I love you. And I know it’s hard to keep up with me sometimes now. But after this baby is born things will go back to normal and you will be able to keep up.” She kisses him on the lips, lays her head on his chest.
“I love you too Ziva, thanks.” He kisses the top of her head. They lay like this for a long time, not talking just cuddling. A phone breaks the silent. Tony reaches over to grab it.
“DiNozzo is Ziva there?”
“Yes, you need to talk to her?”
“Zi, its Gibbs. He wants to talk to you.” Ziva grabs the phone from him.
“What can I do for you?”
“Well I want Abby and you to come to my house tomorrow to help Jenny with the twins.”
“Are they ok?”
“The kids are ok, they have colic, and Jenny is having a hard time with it. If you two could come at watch them so Jenny can have some alone time. Maybe get her to take a bath and nap.”
“Sure Gibbs, any why we can help.”
“Thanks Ziver. I will let you go. I have to call Abs. Goodnight.”
“Goodnight Gibbs.” They hang up.
“What did he want?”
“He wants Abs and me to go over and help Jenny with the twins. She is having a hard time with them. They are sick and crying all the time.”
“Oh well it would be good for you two help out.”
“Yeah. What are we having for dinner?” Tony laughs.
“What do you want?”
“A big juicy hamburger.”
“Ok, I will go make it.”
“Thanks Tony, you are so good to us.” He leans down kissing her.
“I love to spoil you two.”
“And we love you.”
The couple gets up and Tony makes dinner, while eating
“Tony, do you want to know what we are having?”
“What do you want?”
“I want to know, it would make this easier.”
“Ok then we will find out. When is your next appointment?”
“The day after tomorrow.”
“Ok I will tell Gibbs so he knows.”
“Thanks. After dinner do you want to watch a movie? You can pick.” Tony’s face lights up.
“Ok, sweet checks.”
The next day Abby and Ziva meet at the office and ride in one car over to Jenny and Gibbs. Naomi answers the day and sends the upstairs. The two women hear cries coming from the nursery. Jenny is sitting in the rocking chair rocking the twins, they want nothing to do with it and just keep on crying. Jenny looks like she is about to cry herself. Her eyes are red and puffy, there are dark circles under them, and her hair is all over the place like it was just thrown up. The two walk in slowly.
“Jenny?” Abby says softly. The red head looks up.
“Abs, Ziva what are you guys doing here?”
“Gibbs told us to come and help you with the twins.”
“Oh.” The two slowly walk over to her.
“Why don’t we take them and try to calm them down. While you go take a bubble bath and a nap. We can handle them for a little while.”
Jenny hands each of them a baby, the two women get them calmed down which causes Jenny to burst into tears. Abby and Ziva look at each other then back at Jenny.
“Jenny what is wrong?”
“They hate me!”
“No they don’t.”
“Yes they do, they calm down for anyone but me. I am the worst mother on earth!”
Abby hands Neaveh to Ziva and walks over to her. Wrapping an arm around her.
“Jenny why don’t you go take a bubble bath and a nap, we will take care of them. How does that sound?”
“Ok” She says sadly. And walks out of the room. Abby takes Neaveh from Ziva.
“Poor Jenny. Maybe we should call Gibbs and tell him what happen.”
“Yeah.” Ziva grabs her phone calling Gibbs.
“Gibbs it’s Ziva.”
“What is wrong? Jenny and the kids ok?”
“The kids are ok, Jenny I am not so sure.”
“She burst into tears when the kids calmed down with us. Saying they hate her and she is the worst mother ever.” Gibbs sighs.
“They have been that way for a while. She is having a hard time as you can see. What is she doing now?”
“Abby got her to take a bubble bath and a nap. She does not look too good.”
“I know, I have tried to get her to have Naomi help her or hirer a nanny but she doesn’t want either. Wants to do it herself.”
“Why don’t you grab some stuff for the twins and bring them to work, give Jenny a break. Ask Naomi to make up some milk and pack it.”
“Ok. We will be there soon.”
“Thanks Ziva and thank Abby too.”
“They hang up. Gibbs wants us to bring them to work. Can you go ask Naomi to pack some milk, I’ll tell Jenny what we are doing. And meet back here?”
“Ok” They set the twins in their cribs and head out of the room. Ziva finds Jenny laying in her bed.
“Gibbs wants us to bring the twins to work, so you can have some alone time.”
“Ok, I will be over to get them in a few hours.”
“Ok, take your time, we got them.”
Ziva and Abby meet back in the babies room get everything they would need, strap them in their car seats, and head back to work. Once they get there Ziva calls Tony down to help them. He grabs the play pen and the 5 head up to the bull pen. They set up the play pen next to Ziva’s desk and put the sleeping twin in it. They get back to working on the case. A few hours later they twins wake up, Tony and Tim feed them, change them and just spend some time with them. Jenny walks in 2 hours after that. Looking refreshed.
“Hello guys.” They look up at her.
“How are my babies?”
“They are fine.” Jenny walks over to Gibbs leans down kissing him.
“How are you feeling Jen?”
“I feel better, thank you.”
“Well since they are being good, I am going to see how my assistant is doing.”
“Ok.” Jenny walks to her office. At 5 pm Gibbs sends everyone home, they have come to a dead end and wants everyone to get a good night’s sleep.
