Chapter 1.2

As Cherish turned into a toddler, Amelia began to spend time at the library, studying and reading to her. It was here that she met Valleri Chanda and they struck up a great friendship. Things soon progressed and Valleri stayed the night. Yet again Amelia became pregnant on the first try!

As the only adult in the house, she got very good at DIY!
Pregnant and plumbing!

Cherish aged up, gaining the Dramatic trait, which should come out a lot in a household like hers! and shortly after, Amelia gave birth to her first set of twins: girls Promise & Harmony. Harmony was born with the Excitable and Friendly traits, whilst Promise inherited her Mum’s Artistic nature, along with the Brave trait.
 Cherish - pretty in pink, just like Mum!
Little Promise, oldest twin by 2 minutes
Harmony has Amelia's green eyes & Valleri's dark skin, a lovely combination!

Teaching twins their life skills was no mean feat!

Amelia managed to juggle painting, helping Cherish onto the honour roll
and teaching the twins everything and soon they aged up happy and healthy, each gaining a trait – Harmony inherited the Good trait and Promise the Photographer’s Eye.
Harmony becoming a happy child
Promise ageing up too, she looks more like Amelia than her twin Harmony does

Cherish became a real animal lover, always taking the fabulous huntress and her best friend, Lollypop out on walks
And as her sisters grew to children, Cherish too aged up into a teenager, gaining the light sleeper trait which may prove difficult with all the babies yet to come!

Amelia’s friends were round a lot during the twins’ early years and one in particular, Juanita Blanco, made an impression. Good looking and friendly, she took a shine to Amelia and soon enough, those tinkling lullaby sounds were heard. With Cherish now a teenager and Harmony & Promise children, will Amelia cope with this pregnancy as well as the previous two? How many babies will it be this time? And will Amelia ever get a son?!

Chapter 1.1

This is my founder, Amelia Prentiss. I created her to look attractive but tough, she has tattoos and isn't a typical 'Mumsy' sim! I also wanted her less extreme and outlandish than the sims I usually play.

Amelia's traits are: Family Oriented, Artistic, Nurturing, Flirty and Lucky

I built a house for her to start off in, because it cost less, I could make it how I wanted (lack of money permitting, of course!) and it is easier to expand once the babies come!

The first people Amelia met were her neighbours, the Marshall's. She hit it off right away with Kim Marshall, and soon got the marriage want (sorry Amelia!), however I think she was happy enough to pick Kim as the first co-parent of her babies

One try was all it took to hear the magical music.....

Morning sickness, great way to start!

Amelia decided to adopt a dog from the shelter before the new baby came, so they would have time to bond! So along came Lollypop -

She proved her weight in gold; the first time she came back from hunting she brought a gem worth $600 - a fortune when Amelia spent almost her whole budget on the house and is only making about $50 per painting!

Making money whilst pregnant with the first little one!

After a pregnancy spent painting and dog training, Amelia welcomed little Cherish into the world. They may be financially poor, but Cherish will be rich in love - Amelia found out that she is a wonderful mother!

Teaching Cherish to talk

Reading her to sleep!

Cherish rolled Artistic & Perceptive

I promise better pictures in the next chapter :)

100 Baby Challenge: The Rules

I am participating in the 100 baby challenge from Amiisay at  ModTheSims  The rules are:

My founder, Amelia Prentiss, must have as many babies with as many different partners as she can. She cannot get a job or marry any of her partners, and must not receieve any external help to bring up the babies.

I chose her traits. They are:
- Family Oriented
- Artistic
- Nurturing
- Flirty
- Lucky

However, I must roll to randomise all of the babies' traits. I am not ageing any of the babies up early at any stage, and will either keep Amelia in the house for her whole life or until she becomes an Elder. Also, I always play my female sims gay, therefore will be using WooHooer to allow same-sex pregnancy. No cheats can be used (WooHooer doesn't count as a cheat), and the last born girl of the founder will continue the challenge.

I'll be using Mom's Who Think's 'Baby Names That Make You Feel Weird!' and a random number generator for the names, just so they sound interesting!

With that said, let's get on with things! It won't be easy, but I do enjoy a real challenge!
