Lexie awoke in the middle of night, on their honeymoon. Puking after woohoo can only mean one thing... baby!
It was time to pause the game and use all their recent earnings to expand it into something more appropriate for a baby.
I won't bore you with detailed shots of the whole house but I wanted you to see how pretty the view from this lot is!
Before she popped into pregnancy clothes and looked horrible, I made them go get an updated picture. I like Kyle a lot; he's super cute, but he has the Technophobe trait, which is really annoying. The rest of his traits are Excitable, Virtuoso, Friendly, and Genius.
Right after completing Kyle's portrait (just in time before he ages up), Lexie magically spun into her prego-clothes, which surprisingly weren't horrid.
"Cute little nooboo" she cooed to her tummy.
And then threw up directly afterward. It was a pretty rough first trimester, with lots of puking.
Both mom and dad made it a point to read parenting books in excited preparation. Kyle is always reading something, being a genius and all.
He also refuses to watch TV on principle, which Lexie doesn't mind. She's considering getting rid of the television since she's always busy with art and never watches it either.
Lexie was always hungry and had to pee every hour. It's hard work growing a Sim!
Despite her back aching and her feet swelling, she kept painting throughout the pregnancy. Kids cost a lot of money, or so she's heard.
Before anyone knew it, she was screaming in pain in the kitchen, a puddle of amniotic fluid at her feet.
Kyle took several minutes to properly freak out, as Sim spouses tend to do. Once he regained his senses, he drove her to the hospital where she had a pretty long labor as far as Sim's labors go (over 5 Sim hours).
Welcome to the Jensen family Emily!
And welcome Minnie! She had adorable twins, how fun. OK I did buy her the LTR of fertile, I admit it. I'm not sure how "fun" the new parents thought twins were though.
These girls kept them both up all night, but mainly Lexie because Kyle has to work at prescribed hours whereas Lexie's schedule is quite flexible.
After some rough nights, Lexie decided she needed a day off and left the girls at home with a sitter. She needed to blow off some steam and went out to spray paint the town. What the heck is that Lexie? Even she agrees it's ugly.
But as usual, she ended up getting arrested and had to pay a $1,000 fine! That was so annoying because they have so little money.
Out of anger, as is her rebellious nature, she snuck back out that night to tag another spot right next to it. This one was a lot prettier.
I've been making Kyle learn the painting skill to capture Lexie's portrait before she ages up. He needs a lot of practice.
The Chinese gnome Lexie bought at the consignment store seems to be worshiping their paintings, no matter how strange they are.
And then there's our Easter gnome; he's always turning on the TV in the middle of the night to watch soap operas. This house is filling up quick!
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).
