She wasn't sure how she felt about the creepy noises being made in the corridor. Her mouth curled downward as she eyed the door, stomach in her throat, it felt like. Then it was over and she breathed a deep and steady breath.

"Thank you, Reverend Grimes," she said softly as she danced a little to keep the baby content. "She eats well now. I just fed her again." She felt the little one squirm and make noises that babes made.

When Jenny asked about her room, she managed a tired smile and nodded, "It's just fine, thank you."

"Excellent. I'm glad to hear," said the minister.

After a minute or two, Tobias came downstairs looking morose. "Mrs. Appleton is feeling too ill to attend," he stated.

"And the name? Have you decided?" the minister asked, eying the farmer with a furrowed brow that brought all the sternness back into his countenance.

Tobias looked at the babe in Iris' arms and held out his hands to take her. "Emma Ruth Appleton," he said.

If Iris handed Tobias the baby, it would begin to cry instantly, frustrated that it was pulled away from the warmth and comfort of Iris' arms. Tobias could not get her to calm down, but still held her during the little service anyway.

The minister didn't take long: a reflection; a short prayer; and then the baptism, during which little Emma, formally christened as such now, began to wail loudly when the water was poured over her head; then another prayer and they were done. Tobias, who had been gently rocking his daughter, handed her back to Iris. "See if you cannot calm her, Mrs. Carpenter," he said.

She took the babe when the baptism was over and began to sway and rock, "Shhhh, shhh, there, there," she said to little Emma. she placed the wee one against her shoulder and rubbed at her back. "Hush now, baby, it's alright. Oh, it's so hard to be a babe isn't it?" She talked to the baby in a normal voice, then started to walk around with her and hummed softly. She closed her eyes and inhaled the scent of a newborn, that distinct smell only babies had when they were fresh and clean. It was already too late for Iris, for Emma held her by the heart strings.

Tobias spoke to the minister softly while Iris calmed the baby and Jenny cleared away the bowl and cleaned the table. The minister didn't stay for long as he had other duties to attend. He put his hand on Tobias's arm - "Patience and kindness, Mr. Appleton." - and tipped his hat at Iris and then he was off.

Tobias walked over to Iris and the now sleeping babe. "Thank you, Mrs. Carpenter. How do you find your room? Is there anything you require?"
