You say it's your birthday, October 2036

Round 32: October 2036 (Spring)

Finding out they were expecting Baby #4 was quite a surprise for Gordon and a cause for stress for Lia. She will be 40 when this baby is born and has been worried about the effects her age might have on her child. Fortunately, her doctor has assured her that Baby Nott looks very healthy indeed!

Now in her second trimester, Lia can relax just a little bit and look forward to the baby's arrival in April.

Also expecting another baby are Lia's younger sister, Maia and her husband Ethan. Willow has only just turned 1 but she's been such a great baby that Ethan and Maia decided to go for it and start trying for a second child.

They were successful immediately and Willow can now expect to be a big sister in May next year!

And speaking of Willow, this October she celebrates her first birthday!

Like both her parents, Willow loves the great outdoors!

Comparisons:

It feels a little strange to finally be doing one of these for Ethan and Maia!

But here's Ethan as a tot...

...and here's Maia.

And one more time, here's Willow!

Notes:
  • Some of you probably saw my thread about my glitchy pregnancy at N99, in which I was very coy about who the pregnant Sim was! I can say now that that Sim was Maia. ;)
  • In case you didn't see the thread or are reading this at some point in the future, Maia is the first Sim in my game to ever get pregnant as a visitor on a residential lot. I had a little bit of trouble getting her pregnancy to advance once I was back on her lot though, so turned to N99 for help. I've fixed her all up now, and she's due in May, one month after Lia.
  • And in case you're curious, Maia and Ethan conceived this baby in her parents' bed. Ew. I saw them heading for the bed and I idly wondered, "I wonder if they'll try for a baby and if she'll actually get pregnant". And lo, they did and she did!
  • As for Willow, it's no contest, is it? She looks very much like her mother, except for Maia's very distinctive nose, which she somehow missed out on. I'm wondering if that thing will ever get passed down, as all of Lia's kids missed out on it too. Maybe either Lia or Maia's next baby will get that nose!

  1. Ooh, I think Willow is now my fav sim. Sorry Susannah!

    P.S. Where can I get the defaults that Lia is wearing? I want, I want!

  2. Aww, little Willow is darling! Wow, I would have never guessed Maia! I'm more excited that it's her and not someone that Conner or Josh knocked up :P

  3. Ohh Willow is darling! Whose eye shape does she have? It's really reminding me of someone but I'm not sure who. I'm so happy it's Mais having another or, much less scandalous and wow on Lia! Love that they're having babies just one month apart! I hope they have the same sex for babies!

  4. LaurelCrossing, LOL, Susannah has been usurped! She had a good run as your favourite. ;)

    Lia's outfit isn't a default but I'll check where I got them next time I'm in game. I downloaded them relatively recently.

    Thanks for reading!

    Apple Valley, Willow's cute, isn't she? I think when I said I had a visitor get pregnant, most people probably thought it was a woman visiting her partner, so Veronica and Lila would both have been more obvious choices! Both those girls have 10 neat points and are allowed BC though, so it's less likely. Though as Ione showed, not impossible!

    Thanks for reading!

    Maisie, I love Willow! I'm 99% sure those are Maia's eyes she has. In most pics of Maia, you can see her eyes are quite squinty. She and Tessa both inherited them from Jace.

    And yes, Maia's pregnancy is pretty exciting and not so scandalous! I'm glad she and Lia's babies are going to be so close in age. I hadn't thought of them being the same sex but that would be even cuter!

    Thanks for reading!

    Lots of colours and two other maternity-friendly outfits (also in lots of colours) in the same post. :)

  6. I love Maia's pose in that picture!!! And Willow is a sweetie. She looks more like her dad to me, though! Can't wait to see her grown up! :)

  7. Christi, Maia's and Ethan's pose wasn't quite what I was going for but it turned out kind of cute anyway. :)

    You think Willow looks like Ethan? Maybe the eyes are throwing me off! It will probably become much clearer as she gets older anyway!

    Thanks for reading!

  8. Wow, Willow is such a cutie! She looks a lot like her mother, but that's not bad seeing her mother is a very pretty girl!

    And yay for Maia and Ethan having another one! I kind of was expecting them to only have 1 kid, don't ask me why though :) And I'm yet again really excited about this baby!

    I'm with Maisie about Maia and Lia having kids with the same sex, that would be so sweet!

  9. Tanja, I would have been happy if Willow had looked like Ethan or Maia, so I'm thrilled. Maybe this next baby will look more like Ethan.

    I definitely thought one kid was a possibility for them, just because Maia is a bit older. She's very fertile though, apparently. I have my fingers crossed that she and Lia will both have boys or both have girls. No preference as to which, at the moment!

    Thanks for reading!

  10. I finally caught up.

    Willow is super cute. Love the picture with her smiling and her teeth showing. Just plain adorable.

    The Nott family just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I am sure Baby #4 with be just as cute as the other 3.

  11. oasisvalley, that's my favourite picture of Willow as well. Such a sweetie!

    The Nott family is indeed expanding but hopefully, this is the last of it! One family with five kids is quite enough!

    Thanks for reading!

  12. Oh, wow, Willow is so cute! I love all the pictures.

    And, ew indeed! But somehow, with sims it doesn't surprise me... :)

  13. Blackcat, I was so excited Willow was so cute. I just couldn't stop snapping!

    Sims don't seem to have the same boundaries we do, do they? LOL.

    Thanks for reading!

  14. Willow is too adorable! I love it! That little laid-back smirk! :)

    Ew indeed on the location of the conception for Maia and Ethan's second baby, lol!

    The sisters are pregnant together! That's kinda sweet. :)

    1. Willow is one of my favourite toddlers in a long time. I just played her (and updated on her) the other day and I could not stop taking pics of her!

      Heh, I know, right? But two sisters pregnant together has been fun. I'm a bit sad that I don't think I'll have another excuse to get them in the same room while they're both still pregnant!

      Thanks for reading!
