You say it's your birthday, November 2032

Round 30: November 2032 (Spring)

Nick Moretti is 29, Sarah is 27.

No one has actually said anything to us but Nick and I are pretty sure everyone thinks we're crazy for having another baby so soon after Thomas.


Maybe we are but we're excited to meet this new baby anyway. Nick's brothers and sisters are all so much younger than him and he wanted to give Thomas a sibling close to his age.

We decided to have Cara deliver again, seeing she was so great when I had Thomas.

At one of our appointments, Cara brought up the idea of having a medical student there when I gave birth, just to observe. I agreed but I didn't realise it would turn out to be my sister's ex-boyfriend, Malcolm!

I thought that would be awkward but it wasn't too bad. I forgot all about him once we had our new baby boy in my arms.

I think Ryan Jonathan looks a lot like Nick (and like his big brother), only with black hair like me. Nick doesn't think we can tell yet. He's definitely a beautiful little boy though!

Notes:
  • I have apparently lost one of my photos and seeing it was one where I needed the baby bump visible, I couldn't reshoot it. Grumble, grumble.
  • I was a little bit excited to see Nick and Sarah's baby, so I moved this up in the schedule and decided to play the last college update in November instead. I'm telling myself it makes more sense chronologically but I was really just procrastinating. I had a feeling spring break would do my head in and it really did!

  1. Oh yay another boy! Maybe this will be your big boy family!! Are they destined to be a big family? Black hair, ahh he could look more like Sarah, I'd like to see Sarah in boy form actually. she has such a great, unique look, that I hope she passes on some of her genes.

  2. Maisie, ooh, that'd be nice, to finally get my four boy family! I love Audrey, but she kind of spoiled things there with the Lachance family! I do think Sarah and Nick will end up with a big family - she wants 8 and he wants 5! And neither of them are even 30 yet, so they could get there!

    Boy Sarah would be interesting. I'm already excited to age Ryan up, lol!

    Thanks for reading. :)

  3. Aww, another boy! I agree with Maisie, it would be nice to see more of Sarah in this kid since Thomas looks so much like Nick.

  4. The thought of having a sister's ex present during delivery, even if it was just an ex boyfriend, would definitely be kind of off putting LOL! Baby Ryan looks wonderful though, and it would be nice to see a boy with Sarah's looks.

    Five and eight??!! Here's hoping you do get your four boy family, but those two better go to work!

    And I feel your pain about the missing shot, particularly one you can't retake. This was just lovely though.

  5. Aw, yay! Another Nick-baby! ;)

    I can see Nick and Sarah with a whole pack of kids running around, lol.

    Yikes, I don't know about having my sister's ex there in the delivery room. I guess when you're in the middle of it, you forget about who's there but it would be pretty awkward before and after!

  6. I agree with everyone, definitely an awkward moment. Five or eight kids? Sounds insane to me lol. But I know they would be great parents! Can't wait to see who Ryan ends up taking after.

  7. Yay to a new Sullivan citizen! I'm already impatient to see family reunions! :)
    *lol* @ having her sister's ex in the delivery room!
    3 more kids to go!

  8. I really hope he'll look like Sarah! I truly can't wait to see her features on a boy.

    I actually think it makes sense that they would be on a trip in October and only come back to study in November, so don't feel too guilty on it ;)

  9. Sari, that would be kind of cool. I have a feeling Ryan might look a lot like Nick too though, just based on his dominant features in the SimDNA readout. That's a theory I'm still working on though.

    Thanks for reading. :)

    S.B., I would not be thrilled either! I don't know if it makes it better or worse that Sarah's sister dumped Malcolm when they were only 15!

    I'm sure Sarah and Nick will have no problem getting to work on another baby and soon! I would bet that they'll try for another baby as soon as I take Sarah off BC.

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Shana, the last one was so cute, I just had to let them have another! I think Sarah and Nick might be a couple I let go crazy with the kids.

    I've heard it both ways from women who've had babies. A lot of women have said they wouldn't have cared if a marching band came through the delivery room when they were right in the middle of it and others thought they'd be that way but ended up feeling just as modest as they would under normal circumstances! If Sarah was a shy girl, I probably would have written this a different way.

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Mizzgin03, sounds insane to me as well but having a 1 year-old and a newborn sounds pretty insane as well, so I think that just might be how Nick and Sarah roll!

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Sandy, oh, well, there are usually plenty of those in Sullivan! I love a family reunion. ;)

    Thanks for reading. :)

    Flit, well, we'll see. I'm not getting the feeling that it's too likely with Ryan but I could be wrong.

    Oh, it makes sense to me too and I don't feel guilty for arranging things the way I did. But it wasn't my main reason. ;)

    Thanks for reading. :)

  10. yay, another boy!

    p.s. i don't think i've ever told you, but malcolm SO needs to shave. he looks so sleazy with that beard. it's probably the reason why i don't like him much.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yay! Welcome Ryan! I bet he will grow up to be adorable.
    I kinda wanted a girl for these two, but on the bright side; maybe Nick and Sara will give you that all boy family you always wanted!;)

  12. LaurelCrossing, actually, you have told me that before. At least once and I feel like it might have even been twice. But anyway, Malcolm is a scruffy guy and he has a scruffy beard. I'm sorry it seems to bother you so much but seeing he's my Sim and I like the way he looks, I don't see why I should change him.

    Thanks for reading. :)

    coolkat2, I wasn't really hoping for a boy or a girl but for some reason, I was expecting a girl! I was quite surprised when Ryan was born, even though baby sexes are just random in this game anyway. But like you say, maybe this will be the all boy family I want! I've only ever got as far as three boys or three girls and I'm somewhat obsessed with getting four one day!

    Thanks for reading. :)

  13. Welcome Ryan Jonathan. I'm sure his big brother can't wait to see him.

  14. HCove, I bet! I've been wishing toddlers could interact with babies in some way, seeing I think the way I have my schedule for next round means I'll be playing Ryan while he's still a baby. I might have to mock something up.

    Thanks for reading. :)

  15. Yay another boy! Welcome Ryan! I love that he got Nick's coloring this time. It would be too cute if both Thomas and Ryan looked like mini Nicks, one light and one dark. But I'd be really interested in seeing a male Sarah, too.

    Oh and yea, I think it would creep me out a little bit knowing my sister's ex-boyfriend was going to be looking at my lady parts. But, seeing that it was 10-15 years ago, I probably wouldn't have minded (or even remembered LOL).

  16. Danielle, Ryan has kind of a mix of colouring - Nick's complexion but Sarah's hair. I'm looking forward to seeing who he looks like.

    I wonder if this is just something people have to deal with when they live in smaller towns where everyone knows everybody else. I've only ever lived in a big city and stuff like this makes me very glad of that!

    Thanks for reading. :)

  17. Aww, another little boy! :) How nifty that Malcolm was the medical student to assist (even though it might have felt a little awkward at first). Welcome to another little Moretti!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Rachel, I wrote something in a long time ago about Cara supervising the next med student and amazingly, I remembered to act it out! ;) So Malcolm will shadow Cara while he's studying.

    Thanks for reading. :)

  19. Aw another boy! I would have love for them to have a girl, and see their features on a girl. On the other hand I'm thinking the same as coolcat2, maybe Nick and Sarah will finally be giving you that all boy family .... I hope little Ryan gets some features from his mom this time, though I don't think I would mind another Nick look-a-look ;)

  20. Tanja, oh, I don't think I'll be complaining about another Nick look-alike either! We'll see who comes along with #3 - Nick and Sarah both already have the want for another, so they obviously aren't keen on waiting too long between babies!

    Thanks for reading. :)
