(Jack is 17 and Camilla is 16)


Narrated by Sophie Gottlieb

I just got accepted into Suffolk, but I'm trying not to get too excited about university around Camilla. She's still coming and everything, but it's going to be a very different experience for her than it will be for us.

You say it's your birthday, September 2029


Camilla Sitko is now into her second trimester and she's really not enjoying pregnancy. She's tired all the time and really doesn't know how she'll cope once she's out of her parents' house.

Novak Hall - a lot tour

Some of you will have already seen this lot tour at N99, so please feel free to skip this post if you have! I was asked to share it here too though, so for those of you who haven't seen it yet, enjoy!

Novak Hall is an extensive makeover of the Apple Plaza dorm by Babbelsim. I'll stress that the original lot is fantastic but for the way I personally move the camera around when I play, it didn't work well for me. I also wanted larger rooms, because I was keen to try out double beds, and roommates.

You say it's your birthday, June 2029

When Cordy Lane felt the baby coming, she was all alone in the brand new family home. Eliot was at work and all three boys were at school.

(Jacob and Victoria are both 28 and Patience and Josie are both 27)


Narrated by Claudia Kirby

I am just loving living on the farm again. I missed it so much when I was away. It's been too long. As soon as I get home from work, I throw on my jeans and head outside.

Round 29: April 2029 (Autumn)
last update/next update

Emil Collins is 57 and Anna is 51.
(Amar is 28, Nathan is 19 and Hope is 18)

Narrated by Anna Collins

When I found out Betsy had died, I didn't really expect to feel the way I do right now. I loved her but we never had that really close sisterly bond that a lot of other women have with their sisters.

Sea of love

Round 29: April 2029 (Autumn)
Amar Hamilton and Jacob Weaver are both 28 and Dominic Lachance is 19.
(Arianna is 74, Liam is 66, Claudia is 28, Nathan is 19 and Julia is 18)

Narrated by Jacob Weaver

Amar keeps insisting that it's time for Dominic to "get back out there". Amar's always out there, so it's unthinkable to him that someone else might not want to be.

Narrated by Hope Collins

Classes just started here on campus and I'm having the best time. Well, the actual classes aren't that much fun but I'll take boring classes if it means I get to have a pool at home.

At the beginning of this year, I decided to move out of the dorms and find a little place for myself on campus.

You say it's your birthday, March 2029

Eliot and Cordy have moved into their new house with just a few months to go until the arrival of their fourth and final baby. Baby Lane is due in June 2029.

Notes:
  • If one of my pregnant women has to have a girl, I'd rather it be Cordy. I just remembered the other day that I never got my girl who looks like Naomi, and seeing Eliot looks a lot like Naomi, this is my one chance. But I'll be happy if they have a boy too, seeing I still want my crazy all-boy family!
  • The house is finally done, as those of you who saw the lot tour at N99 would know. Looking forward to actually playing them in it. :) It's the Lake Oswego, Oregon house from MTS - that series is a good one for those of you who like large houses too, by the way.

You say it's your birthday, February 2029

Taking walks around the neighbourhood together might not be as easy with two kids as it is with one, so Asha and Luc are taking advantage of the peace and the late summer whether while it lasts. Baby Lane will arrive in May 2029!

Notes:
  • I saw this pose in Tanja's last birthday post and had to try it out! I've had the box in my game for a while but completely forgot about it. There are some other really cute toddler poses with it too, so I think I'll be getting more use out of it in the future. If you don't already have it, you can find it here.
  • I think I've said this before but please bear with me with these birthday posts while I'm still ironing out the kinks in this new months system! I'm still working this out and Asha and Cordy are sort of guinea-pigging it for me. Any Sims who get pregnant in the future will be updated at 4 months, 7 months and then when they're due.

Primary school is so much easier than high school. Jessica gets straight As without even trying.
