You say it's your birthday, August 2037

Round 33: August 2037 (Winter)

Adrienne is at the halfway mark of her pregnancy now and she and boyfriend Amar have just bought a new house in Exeter.

They haven’t had the chance to redecorate in their own style, so Adrienne and Amar’s new house is not quite a home yet. But at least they know when Baby Hamilton arrives in January, they’ll have somewhere to put the crib!

Back in Sullivan, Adrienne’s best friend Matilda has arrived at the hospital for the birth of her first child.
Matilda and her husband Miles are so glad this day has finally come. Matilda’s pregnancy felt much longer than what it was, especially for Matilda!

With the added stress of being trailed by photographers everywhere she went, pregnancy was not so much fun for Matilda.

And it's a girl! Phoebe Miranda already has her daddy wrapped around her little finger.

Matilda and Phoebe will spend just a couple more days in hospital before heading home. Hopefully, the paparazzi will give them a little privacy while Matilda and Miles adjust to parenthood.

Notes:
  • Adrienne and Amar's house is this one. It's fully decorated with Maxis stuff but I'll be pulling all that out and replacing it with furniture from their old place, plus some new stuff (seeing this place is so much bigger). There's a "second lounge" on the third floor that just happens to be perfect for Adrienne's sewing room, so I'm excited about decorating this one. :)
  • This was the first session I played with my new PC, so I hadn't set up allmenus yet. That means I couldn't get Phoebe's SimDNA. But Matilda and Miles both have brown hair and dark blue eyes and that's what Phoebe has too. No mystery there. :) I'm looking forward to seeing what she looks like when she gets older though.

  1. ooh can't wait to see Amar and Adrienne's new baby and their new house too! And yay Phoebe is finally here. I was betting on a boy for some reason so I'm super excited they had a girl! Just a random quick question- how do you choose the names for your sims? Do you just randomly choose one or do you use sites or books? I've always been interested...

    1. I'm slowly, slowly getting around to decorating Adrienne and Amar's place. When I got this new PC, I had 7 new lots to place and decorate and now I have five and a bit (Kirstin and David's new place is playable but not quite done).

      I was actually thinking Phoebe would be a boy too and was very surprised indeed when she popped out. I wasn't hoping for one gender over the other though, so I'm happy enough with Miles and Matilda having a daughter.

      As for names, I often use Nymbler. That's especially good for sibling names, because if you punch in the names of the older kids, it will give you a bunch of names in the same style. For a first child, I allow myself a bit more freedom. Sometimes it's just a name I like (either personally, or a name I like specifically for those Sims) and sometimes I use Nymbler.

      Thanks for reading!

    1. It was very exciting to finally have Phoebe enter the world, after all my computer troubles!

      Thanks for reading!

  3. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of Adrienne and Amar's house once it's decorated.
    And I can't help but wondering it their baby will look anything like Sylvia, or what gender it will be. Do you have any preference?

    When you posted the first pictures of Miles holding his new baby, I really thought they had a boy, but I'm still happy it's a girl :) And Phoebe is such a nice name. I can't wait to see her grow up, I'm sure she'll be daddie's little princess :)

    1. I went into Adrienne and Amar's house and did the kitchen yesterday, just because I felt like doing some decorating. ;) I don't think their baby will look anything like Sylvia though. Sylvia mostly looks like her dad and the only thing she inherited from Adrienne was her chin, so seeing what this baby will look like will be very interesting. No preference for a boy or girl yet. I've lost my notes, so I'm not sure whether I'm imbalanced or not!

      I figured the blue outfit would throw most people. With my reinstall, the baby defaults seem to have been switched around because I noticed Patrick has a wine-coloured outfit on, which I'd be more likely to have put in for girls, if I was using this blue for boys. But who knows what I did? It was a long time ago now!

  4. I was certain that they would have had a son. Cute name though. I hope that the paparazzi do leave them alone. Pregnancy and a new baby is stressful all by itself.

    Maybe Amar and Adrienne will have a boy. I'm feeling that vibe for them.

    1. You too, huh? Nope. A little girl for Miles and Matilda. :) I think the family will be holed up in their house for a while and maybe the paparazzi will find something else to focus on in the meantime. Hopefully, lol!

      We'll have to see about Adrienne and Amar's baby. That's still at least a couple of weeks away.

      Thanks for reading!

  5. I'm very excited to see what Adrienne and Amar have, like Fabi, I have a boy vibe for them too! But I can't wait, and I think a girl would be great, great for Amar! Ooh, I hope it is a girl just for seeing how he does when she starts dating boys! HAHA. I could see him being totally overprotective, and saying things like, "I know what boys at that age have in mind, cause I was one!"

    And aw Phoebe, love that name (it's one I have down for Bea when she has a baby in like 4 real life years, when this Phoebe is a grandma! LOL). I was going to say she looks just like her dad, until you reminded me that her mom has those same eyes. Looking forward even more so now to see who she looks like when she turns one. The blue outfit threw me, thought for sure it was a boy when I saw that photo on N99.

    1. Oh, poor Amar's daughter would probably never be allowed to leave the house! Those guys who get around a bit in their youth often seem to have it all come back and bit them in the ass. ;) I wonder if they might have a girl, considering that!

      LOL, I don't think Phoebe will be quite at the grandma stage in four years! I don't play as fast as I used to! Yeah, hard to say who Phoebe looks like right now - could be a clone of either parent or she could be a mix. I can't wait until her first birthday so I can find out!

      Thanks for reading!

  6. Aww, I bet Phoebe is going to be quite a pretty little thing--Matilda is so pretty. Congrats to them!

    1. Yeah, I think we might have another pretty one on our hands here. Miles is quite pretty as well, lol. ;)

  7. Welcome Phoebe! I also thought she was a boy when you posted at N99. That name really seems to fit them. I'd never heard the name Phoebe before the show Friends so it seems like a famous person name to me LOL. I can't wait to see how their genes mixed.

    And Adrienne and Amar's place is nice. I'll have to download that one and find a place for it.

    1. Yeah, the blue onesie was definitely throwing everybody off! I was pretty sure it would but saying anything about it beforehand would have given it away. ;)

      I finally finished decorating Adrienne and Amar's house (well, except for finishing touches, like the garden) yesterday and I'm really happy with it. They even had room for their hot tub on the balcony, which I didn't realise until the last minute.

      Thanks for reading!

  8. I love that name Phoebe. It matches well with Matilda and Miles.

    1. I like it a lot too. I try to match names to the couple and this one seemed to fit for Matilda and Miles.

      Thanks for reading!

    Wooooot for Andrienne and Amar!

    1. You and me both! I still haven't reached August 2038, so I don't know what Phoebe looks like yet either!

      Thanks for reading and commenting!
