Before anyone knew it, Minnie and Emily's birthday was upon them. In true Sim style, Lexie laid her baby on the floor and awaited her transformation. In my opinion, this is one of the more odd things Sims do because they just as easily could toss the baby up into sparkles and receive a toddler in return.
Minnie aged up first. Where did your shirt go Minnie? You really need a new hairstyle too.
And Emily aged up looking like a boy. They both desperately needed makeovers.
It just so happens that Emily's favorite color is violet, a good choice (it was my favorite color growing up). Emily gained the traits of virtuoso and artistic, a perfect combo of her mom and dad.
Minnie loves pink. How fitting for two little girls. I dressed them accordingly to tell them apart, though I don't think they're identical twins. Minnie's eyes turn down more at the corners, like her dad. She gained the traits neurotic and loves the outdoors. It's bizarre to think of a toddler as neurotic.
I let them play together while I made over the gender-neutral room. It needed to look more girly.
Lexie got right to work on potty training the girls, who learned quickly. This is always the first priority because toddlers can pretty much raise themselves once they can pee alone.
They were both potty trained in no time! Lexie danced with joy. Even the rabbit gnomes were excited. And oops, I forgot to take down the party balloons outside.
Look who showed up one day, without her mother's permission? This is Jenny Day, Kyle's eldest daughter. She wanted to meet her father because it's silly to live in the same town as your dad and not even know him, despite what her mother (Marian Day) says. Jenny told Kyle that she'll sneak over here after school on the days her mom works late. Kyle was thrilled. He had chosen not to engage in a custody battle because he didn't want to put Jenny through that.
After potty training, it was time to learn how to walk. These girls are super spoiled but Kyle and Lexie are more spoiled because the girls are pretty independent, as long as they have each other. (I use mods to make these cheaty Sims 3 Store items not cheaty anymore in honor of the legacy rules.)
Guess who's expecting again? Please be a boy this time! Eat those apples Lexie.
I know you don't see Kyle in any of these pictures, but that's because he's been working really hard. He's at level 3 in the music profession, Stage Hand, and has one star of fame.
Lexie quickly got to best friend status with both of her girls. Emily loves tickles! So cute.
And here's a close-up shot of Minnie just because she's also adorable. It's funny how different twins can be. Even though Minnie is clingy and attention-hungry, she tends to be the leader of the two. Emily is quite independent from her parents, but follows Minnie around like a lost dog. I can't wait to see who these girls become.
Lexie is making a bad habit out of going into labor while painting. Kyle had to rush home from work to watch the girls while Lexie drove herself to the hospital. IDK why his brother Stefen (seen below) didn't help out, but Sims aren't usually very logical.
Yeah so, it turns out Kyle has an older brother. I love it when there is depth to family trees that I don't even know about. Stefen has a wife named Jackie.
She's very pretty isn't she? They have a little boy named Corbin. I think Corbin will grow up to be quite handsome; too bad he's a blood relative to the girls.
FYI, I didn't change anything about these Sims in CAS. I only cheated my way into CAS to get a decent picture of each one. I'm in the process of mapping out a complex family tree because I'm interested in seeing how each branch progresses, not just my legacy household. I plan on keeping tabs on all the relatives in town.
My name is Sarah and I've been playing the Sims since Sims 1 was born. I am a therapist/counselor by day and a gamer by night, and a mommy always (my son is 6).
