Milestones: Fall 605

Simdale Valley

November 10, 605


Mary Gavigan has waited a long time, a decade, for a second child, but at her 10 week prenatal appointment on November 10, she found out they are not just expecting one baby, but two. Dr. Ono said that the twins are due around the end of June, 606.

And Nathan and Mary decided it was time to let Isaiah know about the babies, before Mary starts to show.

Simone Endeavor wasn’t supposed to be able to get pregnant again after Sienna; doctors had said she had extremely low fertility.  But Dr. Ono confirms that she and George have a surprise bundle of joy on the way, conceived at the end of October, right around Simone’s birthday and Spooky Day.

George wants to know if there’s anything special they need to do to take care of Simone and the baby, and Dr. Ono says as far as she can tell, everything looks great.TS4_x64 2016-06-30 23-06-54-45

Their baby is due at the end of July 606, and the whole family is excited, although it’s hard to tell how much attention five-year-old Sienna is paying to the baby news, right now.

Elise Petite turned 31 on September 6th, just before the start of the new school year.  Elise teaches art and kindergarten, and treated herself to some time to herself to paint landscapes in her back yard, the week of her birthday.

Austin Holt turned 14 on October 2nd.  His older sister, Maddison, talked him into skipping school for his birthday and they hid out in the loft of the barn and danced and chatted and played on their phones.

But their dad found them… and Austin got the dreaded lecture

Laney McElveen, Simone’s sister-in-law,  turned 41 on November 3rd, and all she wished for is just a little bit of common sense on the part of the rest of the school board.  They’ve asked for her resignation as chairperson over her treatment of the Smith family, not upholding their rights under McKinney Vento or FERPA.  She feels strongly that she is just doing what’s best for the community and for the safety of the Smith family, who is currently living in a tent on the outskirts of town.

New Couples

Hattie Granger & Gordon Nott are an official couple now, after dating through the summer, but are ostensibly, not living together.  They are both normally very studious, but their attention to school is a little lacking right now.

Divorces & Separations

On November 8th, Sandy Bruty kicked Zane Roberts out of the house and sought legal counsel to limit their son’s contact with his father, due to Zane’s anger issues and verbal abuse of Sandy and Zach.

    Wow, twins after waiting ten years! Mary and Nathan must be so excited, if not also a little nervous! So excited to meet Simone’s baby as well – what a lovely surprise.

    I like how you show all the birthdays! It’s sort of like a mini-update, with just one or two pics. 🙂 I might see if I can do that myself, seeing I have birthdays coming up pretty soon.

    Oh my gosh, how cute are Gordon and Hattie? <3

    • When I saw that Mary was pregnant with twins, I thought, Oh my, she’d be ecstatic, but yes, I think anyone would be nervous as well! Nathan’s happy too, but it’s so funny, he was embarrassed at the get together at Moira’s when Mary was loudly proclaiming that she wanted to have more kids as soon as possible. As for Simone’s baby, I’m not sure if that was a glitch or if it really was a 1 in 100 chance that it was set to be, but either way, I’m pretty thrilled since they are family sims and I thought Sienna would be an only child.

      Since there’s so many families and I’m not really blogging them all as I play them every time, I thought showing them on their birthday would be a good way to help readers have an idea of who they are, and have a marker for me to look back at them as each sim-year goes by. But really, the whole idea is very much based on yours and Maisie’s birthday posts, even though you show them just at transition years.

      And I think Gordon and Hattie are adorable together too 🙂 Thanks so much for reading & commenting!

  2. I’m glad to see that you brought over the Gavigans. I always kind of liked Isaiah in my hood, so I look forward to seeing how he grows up in yours.

    Yay for the new babies and happy (or not so happy) birthdays! And I love that picture of Hattie and Gordon too!

    So many birthdays and babies on the way! I really like the paragraphs for each of the sims, and including those that don’t have a milestone birthday. Like Carla, I’m intrigued! It could be a fun way to include snippets on my sims that I haven’t played in a while, because it can go so long between household sessions.

    And Mary and Nathan are SO adorable in your hood, and yay on twins for them! Isaiah is such a cutie, I love him in my hood as well. I’m excited to see yours grow up and see how he adjusts to twins after being an only child for so long. And wow on the 1 in 100 odds for Simone, I’ve had some very low rolled pregnancies with acr that it’s not unbelievable to me!

    Hattie and Gordon could not be any cuter!! I do not blame them on losing their studious traits for the moment, new love is very consuming, and books can wait! 🙂 Madeline is totally adorable too, and I just love her hair! So many great birthdays!

    • I didn’t think there were going to be any babies on the way, and there’d be a gap in the ages later, but then Mary and Nathan conceived really quickly and of course, Simone was a really big surprise. Hattie and Naomi are two sims that are sort of at risk of getting pregnant even if they don’t want to, right now, but so far they haven’t.
