You say it's your birthday, August 2034

Round 31: August 2034 (Winter)
Jacob and Claudia Kirby are both 33 and Daphne is 3.

Right up until Claudia's due date, we talked a lot with Daphne about becoming a big sister and over the months, she got really excited about the idea.

She even wanted to come to the hospital with us when it was time but we decided to leave her with Megan and Trent instead. I really didn't need to be watching out for Daphne and trying to help Claudia at the same time.

Claudia was a little nervous, like she was with Daphne, but it fortunately all went very smoothly. Once again, we had Josie with us for the delivery.

Just after 11pm, Claudia gave birth to our second daughter, Iris Diana.


Daphne was very keen to come and meet her new little sister, so Megan and Trent brought her to the hospital the next day. I can't wait to have all my girls back home so we can settle in.

Extra:
Just a random one of Daphne with Sadie. This is what was going on when Claudia was giving birth, lol. I never get tired of toddlers and dogs!

Notes:
  • Sometimes I like to do a subtle theme with my Sims' baby names, like with Daphne and Iris. Iris is a flower, obviously and Daphne means "laurel" in Greek. They seemed quite appropriate for a Nature Sim like Claudia.
  • You probably can't really see for certain but Iris has brown hair and dark blue eyes (the dark blue eyes are from Claudia). She also has the same skin tone as Jacob, so she's much darker than her big sister.

  1. Yay, another girl. Isn't that what you were hoping for?

  2. Why did I have a feeling that they were going to have another girl! How sweet. I think both girls will get along will like their mom and her sister. ;)

  3. Yay! Welcome Iris Diana! Very pretty name and I like how you decided to name them. I need to think of those kinds of things when I have to name more babies. I can't wait to see if she's another Claudia mini-me :).

  4. Apple Valley, yes, I was! I wanted a girl for Claudia and a boy for Susannah...so far, so good!

    Thanks for reading!

    Riverdale, maybe you were sending me subconscious girl vibes! I would love it if Daphne and Iris were close like Claudia and Victoria - that would be so sweet!

    Thanks for reading!

    Danielle, I wouldn't want to carry a theme for more than two or three kids though. I probably be scraping the bottom of the barrel by the end of it! Glad you like the name.

    Thanks for reading!

  6. Welcome little Iris! Such a pretty name :) One of my best friends' name is Iris :)

    Such a cute picture at the end! Toddlers and dogs are just too cute!

  7. Hurrah for a little sister for Daphne! I think Jacob is the perfect guy to have two little daughters. He seems like the "daddy's girl" kind of father, so it is super cute! Interesting that Iris got her father's skintone and Daphne has her mother's. They should make quite the pair of sisters. Welcome baby Iris!

  8. Yay for a girl! I agree with Mandie, Jacob is perfect for a father of two little girls. As I read this I was thinking that I could definitely see him being happy with his daddy's girls. :) Welcome little Iris!

  9. Yay for baby Iris! I'm excited to see how she turns out, given Claudia's interesting facial structure, etc.. I'm sure Daphne will be happy to play the big sister role. :)

  10. I love that name! Congrats to the new parent's, she's adorable :). I like the idea of having naming themes. The only sims that have names close to that are my aliens and elves as I try to use names that apply to their races. Jacob really is the perfect "Don't mess with my girls" type of dad :)

  11. Oh, I was right! What a pretty name, too.

    Toddlers and dogs bring hours of entertainment, truly. Real life or otherwise.

  12. Blackcat, I love the end picture as well. So sweet!

    Thanks for reading!

    Tanja, how funny! Iris is my grandmother's and my sister's middle name. :) I've always liked it.

    Thanks for reading!

    Mandie, I can see Jacob having two little daddy's girls as well! Claudia's skin tone doesn't seem to be very easy to inherit, so I was expecting Iris to get either a blend or Jacob's. Either way, I'm excited to see what she looks like when she grows up!

    Thanks for reading!

    Shana, you too, eh? I'm having trouble picturing Jacob with boys, actually. He just seems like a father of daughters to me.

    Thanks for reading!

    Rachel, me too! I'm eager to see if Iris inherits The Chin, seeing Daphne escaped it. ;)

    Thanks for reading!

    Mizzgin03, yeah, I don't think of Jacob as a particularly aggressive sort but I can definitely see him getting protective on one of his daughter's behalf!

    Thanks for reading!

    Choco, heh, well done!

    You're so right about toddlers and dogs! Two of my dogs (I have three) had the best fun rolling around in the grass with a little boy in the park yesterday. It was so adorable! Come to think of it, I'd love to have some of those interactions for toddlers in game as well, lol!

    Thanks for reading!

  13. Aww he has lots of girl in his family, very sweet. I can't wait to see what she looks like when she's a toddler! I think the girls are going to be quite different! Love the name Iris for them. I really like toddlers with dogs too, was just oohing over Roman with their dog Jedi today, love the animations.

  14. Awww, welcome to the world of sims, little Iris! I love the name, I have to say, it's very pretty. Anyway, I can't wait to see Iris grow up.

  15. Maisie, Jacob and his three girls...plus Megan, LOL! It'll be interesting to see if the girls look alike at all. They both have the same dominant features listed in SimDNA but Claudia and Jacob also have the same ones, so that doesn't really tell me anything! Not that it ever did, seeing Thomas and Ryan's readouts were identical and they don't look much alike at all!

    I hope there are a couple of pictures of Roman and Jedi in the next update of that family - sounds adorable!

    Thanks for reading!

    coolkat2, I'm surprised so many people are saying they like Iris - so many people I know in real life think it's terribly ugly!

    I guess it'll be quite a while until we see Iris as a toddler - plenty of things to tide us all over until then though!

    Thanks for reading!

  16. Iris is such a beautiful name! It's on my top 5 list of names for a possible future RL daughter.

    It'll be interesting to see what she'll look like and if she's as cute as Daphne. That's a tough competition because Daphne is such a darling. That last picture of her and the dog is just precious.

  17. Sari, Iris would definitely be on my list as well, if it wasn't my sister's middle name. I love it.

    I know, how could anyone be cuter than Daphne? I'm trying to resist the temptation to grow Iris up to check!

    Thanks for reading!

  18. Aw, that's cute! I love the picture where the little sister is introduced to her elder sister. And that picture with Sadie is another cuteness overload. I can't wait for pets in the Sims 3, I want dogs licking toddlers cheeks! *swoon*

  19. Sandy, I like that one too. I don't always bring the younger siblings to the hospital but it usually makes for a nice picture opportunity when I do.

    Toddlers and pets always make for a cute combination. :)

    Thanks for reading!
