You say it's your birthday, February 2032

It's February and it's time to wish a happy first birthday to Joaquin Miguel, son of Elmer Miguel and Amber Dawn!

No toddler pics of either parent, so you'll just have to look at another of Joaquin instead!

Also turning 1 is Daphne Kirby!

She looks a lot like her mum, Claudia but has a very similar personality to her dad, Jacob.

This would be Jacob, aged 1.

And this would be Claudia.

Extra:
I couldn't pick my two favourite pictures of Daphne, so I went with the ones that showed her facial features the best. Here's another one I really liked.

Notes:
  • Joaquin is adorable now but I aged him up to adult and lamentably, it may not always be that way! He was kind of strange looking as an adult. As I said at N99 though, I hope it's the kind of strangeness that a makeover will fix!
  • Daphne, meanwhile, is just so cute. I love her! I aged her up to adult too, just to check, and she's still a very pretty girl.
  • Because you can't see her from the side in these pictures, I will mention that Daphne did not get Claudia's chin! She did inherit the Kirby nose and eyes but that's Jacob's mouth that she has.
  • I was playing around with some of Jessi's freckles and I couldn't resist leaving them on Daphne. Freckles always up the cute factor. ;)

  1. Aaah the post a lot of us have been waiting for since you teased us :)

    Joaquin is a cutie, it's a shame he doesn't stay that way when he's an adult.

    Daphne is so sweet! She definatly looks like her mom! I'm glad she had her dad's chin though :)

  2. When I saw Daphne, the first thing I said was wow, she doen't look like Finn and Victoria, instead she looks like Victoria's twin sister-glad you included her parents and I have no clue why I thought Daphne was Finn and Victoria's daughter.

  3. Tanja, I told you I wouldn't keep you waiting too long!

    I'm hoping I can save adult Joaquin by throwing some facial hair on him or something. The awful BV outfit he aged up into wasn't helping matters either. But Daphne was cute when she aged up - even her top and pants matched!

    I'm glad Daphne got Jacob's chin as well. ;) So far, the only kid this generation whose inherited that chin has been Declan.

    Thanks for reading!

    Apple Valley, ha, did you? Funny! No, Victoria's kids are all Romilly. But Daphne and Keira were born only two months apart and they've been in at least one update together, so it's not so surprising that you'd get them mixed up.

    Thanks for reading!

  4. Awww, they're both such little cutiepies!

    Hopefully Joaquin will look ok as an adult with a good makeover. Or maybe his strange looks are something you just have to get used to.

    Daphne is such a sweetie! I've apparently become quite good at "reading" sims' faces because I could tell right away she got Jacob's chin. It's nice when the child isn't an exact replica of just one parent although Daphne does look almost identical to Claudia. She's cute anyway :)

  5. Sari, that's possible. I thought Caitlin was pretty strange looking when I aged her up but I think she's super-cute now.

    Hey, you are good! I had to see Daphne from the side before I could tell she got Jacob's chin! Daphne is a bit of a mix but she does look a lot like Claudia; Claudia's eyes and nose are so distinctive.

    Thanks for reading!

  6. OMG! Squee! She is soooo cute! And I can tell from the pics that she doesn't have her mom's chin. I can't wait to see her as a child. So sweet!

  7. Riverdale, isn't she adorable? I love her already!

    Thanks for reading!

  8. I'm late to the party but I just had to add that Daphne is too cute! I can see why you love her. And the hair you chose definitely adds to the cuteness. Her features definitely blend better than Claudia's did when she was a toddler (well, I think it was just the mouth). It would be hard for me to pick a favorite pic of her, too. Can't wait to see more of her!

  9. Danielle, Daphne is quite the cutie! The mouth was the only thing I changed about Claudia when I did surgery on her and I've never been entirely happy with the job I did, so I'm glad Daphne got Jacob's mouth. Claudia and Victoria both originally had Megan's mouth, which just doesn't work on children!

    Thanks for reading!

  10. Daphne is uber adorable! She looks like a Kirby! I see that she has her Daddy's mouth, but still looks predominantly Kirby. Joaquin is super cute too! I hope facial hair fixes any flaws you see him as adult.

  11. Maisie, yes, Daphne is definitely a Kirby! I was pretty excited when she aged up. I was just squeeing at Joaquin when he aged up but was not so excited when I saw him as an adult, lol.

    Thanks for reading!

  12. Aww, Joaquin is super cute! How crazy that he won't stay that way.

    I thought that might be Jacob's mouth on Daphne, when I saw his picture just below. Love the genetic combinations here!

  13. Rachel, yeah, poor Joaquin! I'm hoping the awful, awful outfit he aged into was throwing me off and he's actually not that bad. ;) If he is that bad, I'll put some facial hair on him and see if that improves the situation!

    I don't think I could be happier with how Daphne turned out. She's cute without being all Face 1-ish and she doesn't even have those facial creases that so many "unique" Sims tend to have!

    Thanks for reading!
