Welcome back! For some reason, maybe because today was one of the better days I’ve had in while, I got the itch to really play the Roberts family, so we have a new update!
Said good day may seem contradictory to title, but once we’re done…well…you’ll see.
Last time: we had more birthdays and we welcomed Baby F, a little vampire boy named Ford, into the madness.
Even though the house is full, it won’t be for long. But in the half a day we aren’t actively moving forward, I figured Hannah deserve a non-maternity outfit for the occasions when she isn’t on the prowl or pregnant.
And she looks spiffy!
I mentioned that the house is full, but Al here is at the very end of his birthday. He has until he finishes that painting to stick around and then it’s time for cake.
But in the meantime, Hannah plays with the younger children. The older kids did get the luxury of a less full house and got a bit more attention. Hannah is always rolling kid wants and since she isn’t pregnant and miserable, she can fully enjoy this.
Bill adores babies. I think he might be family-oriented, but I’m not sure off the top of my head. He’s constantly going to play with Ford in the swing.
It didn’t take time for Al to finish the painting, so we whipped out a cake and commenced with the first YA birthday of the challenge!
Usually, the celebration command gets canceled so everyone can keep going about their business. But since this is the first of Hannah’s kid to move out, it gets a pass this once.
I know that I am flake when it comes to the kids’ traits, but if anything I will give them to you before they leave. Al’s final trait was Night Owl. And ignore that fact that Al is two days into YA because I have no clue why it’s like that. This was taken before I even made him over.
Speaking of, he grew up quite handsome. Not that there was any expectation to the contrary. He looks a fair bit like his dad, but he has his mother’s eyes in both color and shape.
With the poppy painting behind him, we kick Alistair Roberts into the Story Progression stream. Making him the first Roberts kid to leave home.
Go forth and propagate. This is a genetic challenge so I want to see Hannah’s grandkids!
But seriously, Al, you’ll be missed.
“You kicked out my son. My oldest baby.”
It needed to be done.
“Does this mean I have to get pregnant now?”
Yes and no. Let’s unleash a genie and see how many wishes we have.
“So we can’t knock boots just yet, so I want you to make sure the next time I try to get pregnant, it sticks. If you want to go in there, make sure this wish happens.”
“Don’t you want to hear the possible effects? You could end up with multip-”
“Just do it!”
We should probably be worried about those effects….but let’s roll the dice.
We needed to hunt down multiple cluster slot daddies and once we got to the elixir shop, this guy was right there. His name is Jorge O Reilly. He’s the child of a townie family and more importantly a one-star celeb. We need a one star.
He’s also a Leo!
We don’t have one of those either!
Too bad he’s leaving for work. Time to go home until we can get him alone.
Hannah wanted to put Etta on the horse and gosh was it cute! I love the interaction and the stubborn toddler face.
“If you don’t get off, she might make you end up like mommy!”
Nope. I’m only planning on doing this challenge once.
“Are you sure I need more?”
You always ask this. It’s getting repetitive.
“But I already have six amazing kids! Why more?”
Because the rules and I want to do it so….
See this? This is the first time this bed was used. It’s Hannah and Xad’s bed. Hannah is on a constant diet of invigorating elixir and Xad usually chooses a chair to restore brain power.
While that was happening, I remodeled a little. I redid the bathroom and added another along with a bedroom for Etta. She’s only a tiny bit from her birthday so it was needed.
They also got a hot tub because…because…
FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU……are you kidding!? Ford’s father hit five star celeb and we needed one of those! You couldn’t have done that a week ago!?
To brush off that notification, we called up Jorge to make baby g.
He showed up and we got straight to the smoochies.
And then I realized we didn’t know his career, although I should have noticed his outfit.
That’s about right. Jorge now fills 3 cluster spots.
But Hannah(and I) weren’t satisfied there. One potion toss and he now fills 4 slots. He’s now a one-star leo musician that happens to be a witch.
Now onto the baby-making!
Poor Ford. He’s hungry, but Hannah is the only one home and is a bit….
…indisposed. In better news, a jingle was heard and baby G is incoming!
Jorge left right after and I changed Hannah back into maternity wear.
Elsewhere, Ford is turning into a toddler!
What a cutie patootie! I believe he has all of Hannah’s colorings. Honestly, I love the explosion of gingers. All but Bill and Cole have some form of red hair.
And I love this little vampire baby!
“Why do I feel so compelled to teach you how to poop!?”
Yeah, Bill takes on Ford’s potty training.
Obligatory puke pic!
In better, less gross, news, Etta is turning into a child!
While waiting for Etta to spin and sparkle, this woman set fire and then disappeared. No clue if she reset or something but….I still don’t know.
Etta is getting the same random treatment that one of my N kids from my OWBC . Just all these good traits floating her way.
Still cute! I have a feeling she’s going to be a looker when she gets older.
Honestly, this pregnancy was really dull for most of its duration. For the most part, Hannah was reading recipes.
Well, except for this. I’m not sure if it was the remodel or what, but he got stuck hovering outside the bathroom.
I can’t stop staring at this little vamp!
The only thing is that my eye defaults are a little wonky with the vamp glow. But I still think he is the cutest!
Since there was nothing else, Hannah started cooking so we had more food in the fridge. The house will soon be a max capacity again and the more food, the less likely one of the kids will starve to death.
Because it was dull, Baby G cooked super fast!
She enter in innocently, thinking nothing back could happen, but then…
“Is that a basket?”
“Why do I feel like this is going to be worse than I think it will be.”
Here’s the thing…I knew we would probably get triplets and over stuff the house. I’m not sure if you HAVE to have multiples, but it feels like a cop out if you don’t. So….I had Hannah wish for a big family. However, what I forgot is, in one of the Nraas mods, is the less than one percent chance for…well…
We got quads…..we may be royally screwed.
“What do you mean there is no mistake? There is no way my wife gave birth to four babies.”
It happened and we….well…
Then we got this and all I could think of, besides that I’m a bit of a dizzy idiot, is that one child would have been amazing. Stupid tabloid.
Now for names.
The blue boy on the very left is Gestalt. Gestalt is named after a character from one of my favorite books called The Rook. It was written by Daniel O’Malley. It’s a book about a woman named Myfanwy Thomas. It is such a fun mix of fantasy and intrigue. Look it up!
The little yellowish girl next to Gestalt is Gwen. Gwen is named for the character from Torchwood, the Doctor Who spinoff. I am a Doctor Who nut, not as much as I used to, and I adored Torchwood. Gwen was a strong bad ass played by Eve Myles.
The little pink boy is George. Obviously named for one half of the Weasley twins from the Harry Potter novels.
And finally, the pink little girl is Ginny. Also named after a Harry Potter character. And also a Weasley. Ginny Weasley.
And that is all I have for today. As soon as the quads were fed and deposited into their swings, I needed to get off and make sure my head didn’t explode. I feel like such a dunderhead for having Hannah make that wish. This development means we won’t be having a new baby anytime soon…
I’ll see you next time. Hopefully on saner terms.
