Story progression notified me that Sam’s girlfriend had given birth to a little girl. Leighton and Shirin went to introduce themselves to mother and baby.
Back at home, the nursery was full of little ones – Shirin and Leighton’s sons Kaveh and Hibiki, and Elisa and Grady’s daughter Breda. As usual, everyone helped to look after their needs and teach them skills.
Life for the older sims in the household rolled on. Clark completed his perfect garden lifetime wish, Sara made a new friend for a school opportunity, Shirin unlocked the ability to write masterpiece novels, Elisa became the last of my founders to reach the top of her career, Maria glitched out and took to sleeping standing up, and I totally forgot about that teen cuddling thing I was meant to be testing (next time, I promise!).
Elisa threw a very successful campaign fundraiser, at which both she and Kaveh aged up.
Grady reached the top of his career, fulfilling his lifetime wish of becoming an international super spy. Since this generation of the legacy was drawing to a close, I decided to have him retire and spend more time with his family.
I had him use some of his newly freed up time to make spaghetti for the family. It was the first meal he’d ever cooked, but it somehow came out perfect quality.
While the others ate, in the next room Kristjana realized she was experiencing a first of her own – her first pregnancy!
She announced the news to Clark, and for once he actually looked happy. I’m pretty sure this was the only time I’d ever seen him smile.
That night, he stayed up late reading both pregnancy books, and rolling all kinds of baby-related wishes.
He also had a wish to marry Kristjana, which I fulfilled in a private ceremony next to the garden they had planted together.
As the weekend approached, I realized that all four of Elisa and Grady’s children’s birthdays were all due to fall within a day of one another. Since a big birthday party seemed like a nice way to end this generation, I set up a table in the back garden to hold all the cakes.
Plenty of familiar faces appeared at the party. Sam spent some time playing with his little brother, while Hank flirted shamelessly with Bebe Hart right in front of his fiance (and mother of his five children) Pauline.
Christopher’s attentions to Shirin were equally inappropriate and much less warmly received.
All the birthday sims aged up. First Breda…
…and finally Maria.
Maria’s entry into young adulthood marked the start of the second generation. Next time, we’ll begin following the Maria, Naoise, and Sara as they explore some of the content from World Adventures. Happy Simming!
