You say it's your birthday, November 2033

This November, Ryan Moretti is turning 1!

Ryan is a little quieter than his big brother, Thomas but he's just as sweet.

Here's Ryan's daddy, Nick, as a toddler...

...and his mummy, Sarah.

Notes:
  • So I'm going to give up trying to predict what toddlers will look like based on the SimDNA readout because this one just didn't pan out at all, lol! I thought Ryan would be a clone of Thomas but he's more of a mix.
  • That is most definitely Sarah's nose Ryan inherited, in case you can't tell. I grew him up to check what he looked like and he looked...kind of weird. The nose sticks out waaaay too much. So I nudged it in a little. It means his nose is a little small at the moment but it looks normal as an adult, so I'm going to try not to mess with it too much. ;)
  • Just in case anyone is reading this within minutes of it being posted, I haven't done Ryan's profile yet but I'm hoping to get it done very, very soon!

  1. Haha I'm here within minutes! How funny. Just came on whim to see if there was a new update, and voila! Ryan is adorable!! He's a great mix of the two, and I like Sarah's nose, so he's adorable in my book! I love that he's not a clone of his brother, variety is the spice after all. He looks like he has Sarah's eye shape too.

  2. Maisie, I figured there'd be at least a couple of people who saw the post before I managed to get the profile up! Ryan's profile is all done now though. :)

    I'm not positive on Ryan's eyes. I think they might be Nick's. He actually mostly looks like Nick to me, except his nose. That's unquestionably Sarah's!

    Thanks for reading!

  3. Oooh, Ryan's such a cutie!! He's a great mix of both his parents, unlike Thomas who's Nick all over!
    Just like Maisie I don't think there's anything wrong with Sarah's nose, and I do like it on little Ryan!
    I'm pretty sure he's going to be a true heartbreaker when he grows up!

  4. Awwwwww, what an adorable little one! He's adorable! It's funny, because when I saw him, without reading who he was, I knew who were his parents, but I thought he looked a lot like Sarah. Now that I look at his parents' picture, it's true he's more a mix of them both. Definitively a cutie. :)
    (PS: You know you called me Naomi on your latest update? *lol*)

  5. He looks more like Nick to me than Sarah. And seeing as how Nick is a cutie, he has no other choice than to be a cutie.

  6. I never thought I would gush over Sim toddler shots but here I go. AAaaaaawwwwwww.
    Adorable. Really. Looks just like Daddy.
    I have got the 'big nose' syndrome randomly as well, weird considering either parent didn't have a big nose.

  7. Tanja, I am actually cool with Ryan getting Sarah's nose, after changing it a little. It pokes out more on men than it does on women, so it looked sort of comical, lol! Nick and Sarah are probably going to have tons of teenage girls knocking on their door in 15 years or so!

    Thanks for reading!

    Sandy, oh, that figures! I called Maisie "Julia" yesterday as well, lol. A good day for me, clearly!

    Anyway, that's cool that you could tell who his parents were right off! You really can pick his features out and see which one comes from which parents. And he's adorable.

    Thanks for reading!

    Apple Valley, well, I'm pretty fond of him. ;)

    Thanks for reading!

    Mizzgin03, yeah, I definitely think most of his features come from Nick. I was iffy on the eyes but I think they're Nick's as well. I'm not complaining!

    Thanks for reading!

    Drew, LOL, sometimes I feel like I do nothing but gush over Sim toddlers. I think they're one of the most well-done features in TS2.

    The big nose syndrome isn't exactly random in this case. Sarah used to have a teeny, tiny nose - it was non-existent, almost. So I did surgery on her as a teen. I should have done it on her as an adult though, because her nose sticks out just a tad too much for my liking. I'll leave it alone on her but it looks really silly on a guy, apparently. ;) So any boys who inherit her nose will be getting some "help".

    Thanks for reading!

  8. Awwww, he's adorable! I can definitely see a mix of both Sarah and Nick.
    Happy Birthday to Ryan!:)

  9. coolkat2, I love him too. I'm a little sorry I won't get a chance to play with Thomas and Ryan both as toddlers. I might go in and do a little photoshoot with them, so I can hang some pics in their house. They're both so adorable!

    Thanks for reading!

  10. Aw, he is so cute! I think he a looks a lot like Nick, but yes, definitely Sarah's nose. I like that he and Thomas look different because I like to see the parents' genes mix in different ways in each of the kids. :)

  11. Shana, I love that too - genetic diversity is awesome! I took some pictures for December birthdays with Thomas and Ryan side by side and they're even cuter together. :)

    Thanks for reading!

  12. From the angle of the shot, it's hard to tell that Ryan has Sarah's nose unless you look at Sarah's toddler pic, and then you can see it. I think he's adorable! He definitely has Nick's eyes.

  13. S.B., I'm planning on putting my December birthdays post up within a day or so and you'll see Ryan and Thomas both from the side. Then you can really see that they've got different noses!

    I do love Ryan though. Nick's eyes come from his great grandfather who I made in CAS, so I'm excited to see that feature passed down through so many generations.

    Thanks for reading!

  14. Aww, Ryan is such a cutie! The moment I saw him I thought "yay, he's got Sarah's nose".

  15. Ryan is one adorable toddler! :o Sometimes toddlers in TS2 are a little creepy too (Like in 3), but he's just all around cute!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Sari, it's quite a distinctive nose, isn't it? I think it's mostly because it's so high up away from the lip. He's a cutie though.

    Thanks for reading!

    Lunar, I love Ryan too. He comes from good breeding stock, I guess. No creepiness here! ;)

    Thanks for reading!

  17. Awww I already saw him at N99 but he's so stinking cute. I love Nick and Sarah's kids and I'm glad they're building their own little army so fast. I can't wait to meet the next little one.

    At first I wasn't sure about Ryan's eyes either but yea, they're definitely Nick's "sleepy" eyes. I'm glad he got a little bit of Sarah in him but I'll never complain about getting another mini-Nick ;).

  18. savannahsims, well, I certainly think so. ;)

    Thanks for reading!

    Danielle, LOL, they are kind of building an army, aren't they? Seems appropriate, given Nick's career!

    If Nick and Sarah want to have a dozen kids that all look like Nick, no, I won't be complaining either. Even as an adult, Nick is so adorable!

    Thanks for reading!

  19. Aww, he's such a cutie right now...it will be interesting to see what he's like as an adult. :)

  20. Rachel, I'm pretty thrilled with how the Moretti boys have turned out so far. Very cute!

    Thanks for reading!
