Well here we are .. the beginning of a new generation! This is always my favorite part.. that and when they start having potential heirs… and when the heirs age up.. sigh. ok. So I just like Sims 4.. a lot. *grin* Into the game play!
Alan’s first day. And he’s gotta go to work.. so we get his needs up.
“What seems to be the problem?”
“How in the world does this thing work?” (The sim behind him is complaining about a puddle.)
Maybe more Logic would help at work.
Aimee doing her homework. Without prompting. What a good girl!
Well, SOMEONE’s gotta take care of the garden! (Not too long after this, I hire a gardener for the weekdays.)
Moira Fyres getting an X-ray scan. For a while, I considered wooing her.. but she’s already an adult.
Pleasedontdiepleasedontdie.. He’s got like NO handiness skill.
“Sir, you need to go home. You’re not even a little bit sick.”
“Take these and call me in the morning” (LOL I couldn’t resist.)
The dreaded treadmill test. At least, I would dread it!
This is to commemorate Aimee’s high school “A”. Hooray!
Maeve, why are you watching the kids channel?
Trying to get two hours of focused gaming in for that first milestone in Computer Whiz.
.. Too bad she’s only a teen. She’s pretty.
Deja vu.. didn’t we just do this, Moira?
The ONLY young adult I’ve seen in four days of looking. She’s pretty, too. Alan, make nice with the lady…
The obligatory Cloudgazing picture during the get-to-know-you part.
The first flirts are a success!
Oh, no! The tell-tale glow of an alien. I immediately pause and start wracking my brain for whether I want to bring an alien into this mix. Then go look it up to make sure it’s even allowed. (It is…)
I decide not to decide yet… and have Alan get his first woohoo. He seems pretty happy about it… LOL.
Chatting with Dad later.
Helping Aimee with homework .. need to keep that “A”…
.. Boy I’m really going to miss Maeve… she’s such a sweetie. About now.. I take a break from playing, trying to decide whether or not to go for the alien.
Decision made. Her name is Ashley Forrest.. it starts with an “A”, it must be meant to be. *wink* If she accepts my first proposal, she’s in.
Congrats, you two! (And that’s a happy glowy alien right there.. 🙂 hehe!)
Later, I remember to take a picture of her traits. All good traits. Maybe I’ll get them a dog …
It occurred to me to make this picture the title photo instead of the “first day at work” photo.. because I see him doing this a LOT. Being a doctor-in-training is hard work!
The next day.. Ashley ages up. Guess she’s a little older than expected. We’ll have to get going on babies soon so she’ll be around to see them grow up.
She doesn’t like Love Day roses. Poor Alan is sad about it.
A rare day off is used fixing everything around the house.
.. and cleaning…
… And gardening. No gardener on the weekends, unfortunately.
Aimee watches while Alan makes something for her…
Happy Birthday, Aimee!
Nice. Strange mix of traits.. but okay.
I move Aimee in with her brother out in the world. We’ll miss you, Aimee!
Speaking of Detectives.. did I mention that’s what Ashley is?
Fixing the fridge.
Aimee comes back to say hello. I mean, I did say we’d miss her…
Why does everything keep breaking?
Might as well get Ashley some fun/Logic skill.
Trying for our first baby!
So much going on in this picture. Baby bump = success! Taking bets on whether it’ll be an alien (not that you can tell for sure until they’re children..)
I saw this one coming…. Dominic manages to break nearly every piece of plumbing in the house.. and certainly everything in the upstairs bath…
Going to work when still hungry is never a good thing.
Even celebrity doesn’t keep you from the treadmill test.
Stinky and sleepy again… you guys are lucky I didn’t take pics of all his naps.
What in the world??
.. Nope, I was wrong. It was out of this world. *wink* I like to think it’s Ashley’s family, checking up on her new hubby.
Ashley decides to pick up the guitar.
Welcome back, Alan. We hope you’re not expecting, too. (And I decide to play for a bit longer, because I just have to know if he is…)
At least he’s not stinky this time.
Why are you taking that upstairs, Ashley?
Oh… No.. Maeve…
Bad news. I quickly go into her panels and take screenies of the relevant panels for posterity.
It’s Monday, so time to pay the bills.
.. Thank goodness she made it. I was worried, there.
Rebate day.. so I decide to upgrade the kitchen with the 18k or so they have saved up.
Socializing with Maeve while she’s still around. *frown*
Upgrading. Maybe it’ll break less?
Our first house call.
All better! (And why was Vanessa Jeong at the Delgato house?)
Ran out of stuff to do at work and the bar’s full. So we have dinner.
Hugs to Maeve.
Maeve’s first.. and last.. song.
Very unhappy alien.
Aww.. he’s adorable!! Welcome Branden!
.. Darn. I was hoping to end the post on a good note. But Maeve beat me to it.
RIP Maeve. We put her in the back garden next to Dominic.
+ 5 points for Aimee’s A, + 10 for her two positive traits, +10 for her top of teen career, and + 10 for two milestones completed for Alan. (The first one was the first Computer Whiz, but he can’t continue there without changing jobs.. and the second was after I changed his aspiration to Fabulously Wealthy.) Also, +5 for the new baby.
