Time had gotten away from him. He knew House was likely sick with withdrawal after London had vanished and he himself had been so sleep deprived that it was hard to think of doing much of anything. But eventually life fell into a rhythm and Jack was feeling more comfortable with being a father.

He'd told Logan to take a nap and get some real sleep. In order for the younger man to do that Jack had packed a bag with diapers and bottles and flanel blankets and a change of clothes. Then he'd set out to go be social. He had a duty and it was time to fulfil it.

Joe needed to meet her godfather.

Jack went to House's hut and knocked on the door. He could hear Fucker inside and he waited patiently for the doctor to make his way to the door and open it for him. He had the bag on his shoulder and the baby in the sling against his chest. She was awake, wide eyed and looking around at the world going by around her. Jack thought it was good she was in a good mood. It would make a nice first impression.

With the fresh hell that had been detoxing from opium, House honestly hadn't given a lot of thought to the fact that Jack and Logan had a kid now. He knew, of course, but even that wasn't enough to make him seek them out. Actually it was a pretty good reason not to, he thought. Arbitrary godparent titles or not.

Still, he wasn't terribly surprised to see Jack at the door when he opened it. His eyes swept down to the infant, whom he regarded apathetically.

Then he leaned in and waggled his fingers at her and said in a cooing voice, "So here's the little life ruiner."

"Oh no, let me just kick out the person in my bed - oh wait, that's just the dog." He opened the door wider and stepped inside, assuming Jack would follow. "And just you wait on the ruining part. She's really small now."

House set down his cane and limped carefully over to them, taking the baby from Jack without another word. He might not have much to do with babies in his personal life, but he was a doctor. He knew perfectly well exactly how to hold a baby.

She started to fuss, and he murmured, "Hush." And... she did.

"Easy," said House with a hint of cheerfulness, "they have to believe you're actually threatening them."

He let the baby grab onto one of his fingers. "You know, her head's shaped kind of funny, don't you think?" It wasn't, really. He waggled his fingers at the baby again. "You're pretty boring, turnip head." She gurgled happily.

"If she doesn't know then I don't think she cares," House pointed out. "Isn't that right, turnip head?" She made a little squealing noise and waved her hands in little fists.

He didn't comment on the her liking him thing.

Then he looked up at Jack and smirked. "She has your eyes."

"Well she's just the cutest little life ruiner I ever did see," House cooed in faux baby-worshipping fashion. And then added to the baby, "When you're older I'm going to teach you to swear in ten different languages."

"Uh huh," said House. He looked down at the baby as she yawned and seemed to settle more comfortably in his arms, closing her eyes. "Don't learn from what you overhear from daddies, otherwise you'll get all the naughty stuff first."

"Don't get any ideas," House said, eyeing him. "Just because I can get the kid to sleep doesn't mean I'm babysitting every time you want some. Sleep deprivation is part of being a parent."

"Well... of course I am," House said, sounding like he wasn't really sure how to respond to that.

But then he brushed it off. "It's just a coincidence anyway. She's probably just exhausted."

Speaking of exhausted, House's leg was starting to ache, so he sank down carefully on the bed, still holding her. It didn't seem to disturb her much at all.

"Right," said House dryly. "They should put me in diaper ads. She's probably peeing on me right now."

House snorted in amusement at that. "Nah, after not being able to get rid of Phedre for four days I've had my fill of young and beautiful for a while."

"Yes."

House wasn't really sure what else to say. "Because, you know. I had to make sure she didn't start liking me too much."

"Oh good," said House. "Put in a good word for me then, would you? Because she's only seen the puking and swearing. Preferably something about multiple orgasms."

"Uh huh," House said, clearly not buying it.
