You Still Make My Crazy Little Heart Go BOOM! Chapter 3

Welcome back! I told you that I wouldn’t be as quick at posting updates! Life has been busy! Finally here is Chapter 3! Remember we left off with the twins becoming toddlers. We are at 3 girls right now and 0 boys.

10-14-18_9-11-15 PM

Here we have some family bonding time. We will need to get a bigger couch at some point…

10-14-18_9-16-47 PM

The girls’ room is getting a little more furniture! Mostly because there are now 3 toddlers so 3 beds. At least it’s less empty now.

10-14-18_9-18-31 PM

Alvin enjoys breaking the computer when I tell him to level up for work purposes…

10-14-18_9-18-39 PM

Just don’t electrocute yourself while you fix that!

10-14-18_9-29-01 PM

Toddler skillz! Not easy to keep track of 3 skilling toddlers at a time!

10-14-18_9-34-09 PM

I caved and bought a doll house…. let’s see how long it takes to get smashed!

10-14-18_9-37-28 PM

And here we are not waiting too long to start on more babies.

10-14-18_10-25-01 PM

More family members calls for bigger couches! Also notice the red plumbob….this happens a lot in this house! Sims 4 newbie here!

10-14-18_10-39-15 PM

Betty grows up with the “forgot my birthday” moodlet…. I didn’t forget! I just couldn’t figure out how to do the whole birthday cake thing….my bad… As a toddler she didn’t max any skills. Communication 4, Imagination 4, Movement 4, Potty 3, and Thinking 3. She did earn the Happy Toddler trait. As a child she also became Creative and is an Artist Prodigy. Her skills are Social 2, Mental 1, Creativity 2, and Motor 2.

10-14-18_10-41-39 PM

We have our first monster under the bed! Super annoying! Why did they have to add this?!?!?!?

10-14-18_10-42-36 PM

Super annoyingly wakes up parents who are beyond exhausted.

10-14-18_10-43-31 PM

Vanessa sprays invisible monster and everyone can sleep again.

10-14-18_10-54-35 PM

Betty’s first homework assignment!

10-14-18_10-55-42 PM

Bathrooms are always gross here! At least Vanessa increases her fun every time she cleans! Also notice the unhealthy plumbob again.

10-14-18_10-59-15 PM

Betty also seems to enjoy cleaning which is awesome!

10-14-18_11-11-46 PM

Testing out those creativity skills with our new activity table!

10-14-18_11-18-31 PM

For some reason everyone likes to eat on the toddler beds….The couches are closer but they still end up here…. Maybe someday we will be able to buy a dining table.

10-14-18_11-23-08 PM

Vanessa went into labour in the garden this time. Don’t think this will get you out of garden duty!

10-14-18_11-25-25 PM

We have our first boy!!!!! Meet Brody!

10-14-18_11-28-57 PM

I don’t remember why I took this picture….but here is Betty! Probably coming home from doing something big and important at school that I forgot about!

10-14-18_11-32-35 PM

So she decides to go do her homework on her parents’ bed.

10-14-18_11-38-21 PM

Sent Alvin out scavenging for things to help us buy stuff!

10-14-18_11-40-32 PM

I apparently like to take pics of sleeping kids.

10-14-18_11-53-22 PM

Toddlers busy being toddlers! Skills aren’t going as well as I had hoped. Hopefully at least one of them will max something before aging up!

10-15-18_9-48-48 PM

More hanging out in the girls’ room.

10-15-18_9-59-06 PM

Every once in a while I have to kick Betty out of her parents’ bed and into her own.

10-15-18_10-09-06 PM

Brody is a Toddler now so we are back to having 3 toddlers in the house….Yay….Also Brody is Wild….Should be fun….

10-15-18_10-14-34 PM

Here he is after his makeover.

10-15-18_10-19-57 PM

Skills little man! Skills!

10-15-18_12-03-28 AM

Here is the start of the boys’ room!

11-27-18_9-16-33 PM

More art! And the dollhouse has moved to the common area and hasn’t been smashed yet!

11-27-18_9-18-35 PM

Family meal with half the family! Actually in the living room and not in the girls’ room!

11-27-18_9-20-24 PM

Is this just a Wild Toddler thing? I have never seen a streaking toddler before! I quickly sent him back in the house and made him put clothes on!

11-27-18_9-24-06 PM

I love the parent and toddler play time!

11-27-18_9-30-10 PM

Brody was the first to smash the doll house. Vanessa doesn’t care much because her sandwich smells really good.

11-27-18_9-35-48 PM

So cute when one of the kids runs to meet Alvin when he gets home from work!

11-27-18_9-42-04 PM

More meals on toddler beds. Also I moved them to the middle of the room because the twins will be aging up soon so we needed bigger beds!

11-27-18_9-42-30 PM

Vanessa is starting up her painting skill so she can eventually paint portraits of all the family members.

11-27-18_9-46-06 PM

Twins just having a chat

11-27-18_10-02-21 PM

We got a TV! Apparently the TV stand is the best place for dirty dishes….

11-27-18_10-09-05 PM

Brittany ages up with no cake!

11-27-18_10-20-52 PM

Annoyed because of lack of cake. Here she is after her makeover! She maxed Communication and Imagination as a Toddler which I am really impressed about! Movement 4, Potty 2, Thinking 2. She is now a Whiz kid and a Genius. Social 2, Creativity 2, Mental 1, and Motor 2. Also earned Happy Toddler.

11-27-18_10-27-42 PM

Bethany also ages up without a cake.

11-27-18_10-36-46 PM

Here she is after her makeover. She maxed Imagination. Communication 4, Movement 3, Potty 1, and Thinking 2. She is now Rambunctious Scamp and Active. Also earned the Happy Toddler.

I will leave you with that for now. Next time maybe more babies? Maybe I will learn how to do birthdays? Maybe someone could tell me how? lol Who knows! This is as far as I got in playing so I have no idea what will happen in the next chapter but see you then! Probably not until after Christmas but who knows!

You Still Make My Crazy Little Heart Go BOOM! Baby Boom Challenge Chapter 2

Welcome back! I am surprised that I was able to update this fast but I just had to keep going! It probably won’t happen quick like this too often since I have a full-time job and a 3 year old. Just don’t come and inspect my housekeeping skills that I neglected to work on this challenge!

If you remember, last chapter we started off the family with our first girl named Betty.

09-29-18_10-31-05 PM

Also there was a fire and Alvin came home from work to save the day.

09-29-18_10-37-15 PM

My favorite thing about the Sims 4 so far has to be that we no longer have to deal with the high chairs and toddlers being left in highchairs and whatnot. Love how toddlers are a bit more independent now!

09-29-18_10-44-31 PM

Cute toddler bath time pic in a really ugly bathroom!

09-29-18_10-52-17 PM

And we are continuing with the challenge! Another baby on the way!

09-29-18_10-55-10 PM

Alvin is also an involved parent when he isn’t out earning the family money so that they don’t have to live on the lawn forever.

10-08-18_10-23-09 PM

And we could afford a toddler makeover! Yay! Yes I still don’t have any CC or EP’s yet. I haven’t even looked into CC yet and I’m too broke for an EP at the moment lol. If anyone can suggest any decent Sims 4 CC sites I would appreciate it! 🙂

10-08-18_10-26-14 PM

Learning to talk outside the ugly dirty bathroom.

10-08-18_11-03-09 PM

The garden continues to bring in some money for us and Betty follows her mommy everywhere!

10-08-18_11-42-41 PM

She looks chill but she is actually in labor right now. I remembered to take the pic this time! Yay me!

10-08-18_11-45-43 PM

Decided to birth at home since we can’t hire a babysitter.

10-08-18_11-47-31 PM

*insert colorful words here* it’s twins…..

10-09-18_9-22-34 PM

Twin girls at that. Meet Girls 2&3 Bethany and Brittany.

10-09-18_9-51-20 PM

Aww another cute Betty pic. Wait! Are those walls around her? Whose house is she in? Was she taken away and adopted by a family that can afford walls?!?!? Nope! WE HAVE A HOUSE!!!!

10-09-18_9-54-50 PM

It’s still a pretty empty house but here is the girls’ bedroom which only has Betty in it right now. I did not build a Boys room yet since there are no boys yet….Hopefully the next one is a boy….and not twins….or triplets…..lol

10-09-18_10-00-02 PM

Here is the master bath….and currently only furnished bathroom. The other bathroom only has a potty in it right now lol.

10-09-18_10-10-26 PM

Alvin came home with a promotion so we decided to make the kitchen a little nicer. This is the before pic.

10-09-18_10-13-38 PM

And this is after. I will be adding on to it as we make more money.

10-09-18_10-19-44 PM

This is the master bedroom that currently only has a bed and 2 bassinets in it.

10-09-18_10-33-04 PM

Time to age up the twins! This is Bethany. She now has the Angelic trait. She aged up with glasses for some reason so I will keep them!

10-09-18_10-34-16 PM

And this is Brittany. She has the independent trait and will also be keeping her glasses!

10-09-18_10-50-03 PM

Here they are after their makeovers! Brittany is in back and Bethany in front.

10-09-18_10-54-47 PM

I will end this chapter with this cute pic of the twins! I am not sure how I will survive 3 toddlers in the house! Betty doesn’t age up for 3 days! I would age her up sooner but I want her to do more toddler skilling. I think we will be waiting a bit before trying for another baby. I am scared of having more multiples and being overwhelmed by toddlers! See you next time!

You still make my crazy little heart go boom! Baby Boom Challenge Chapter 1

Hello readers! This is my first attempt at a challenge with the Sims 4. I have a history of failing legacies and challenges with the Sims 2&3 but I am older and more mature now so maybe I can succeed at a challenge now in my old age (almost 30!). After seeking help from my Boolprop community on which challenge I should attempt I have chosen the Baby Boom Challenge. I figure it is one generation not 10 like a legacy so maybe my attention span wont wander off. This challenge means that I must have a couple that pops out 12 boys and 12 girls. You can see the whole list of rules here: https://boolprop.net/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3601&start=0

So let’s jump right in and meet our “lucky” couple!

09-28-18_10-18-10 PM

Meet Alvin DaBomb (because I’m super creative like that!) I tried to make this as random as possible just for fun so I randomized his appearance and his first name. I however chose his traits and such. Also, just to warn you, I do not currently have any EP’s or CC so hopefully you don’t get too bored with my basic Sims 4 Deluxe lol. I am still a Sims 4 Newbie afterall lol. Alvin has the Computer Whiz aspiration and he is a Goofball, Geek and Family Oriented Sim.

09-28-18_10-18-40 PM

Now let’s meet his lovely (soon to be) wife Vanessa DaBomb! Maybe one of you readers can tell me if there is a way to make them start out married when you are creating a family? I couldn’t figure it out so we get to do the whole meet, fall in love, get engaged and get married in 8 hours! Vanesssa has the Big Happy Family aspiration (for obvious reasons lol) and she is a Foodie, Family Oriented and Neat Sim. Her appearance was also randomized except I chose her hairstyle because I didn’t like the random one lol.

09-28-18_10-23-27 PM

I bulldozed a giant lot for them to live on because they need to live poor for one and they eventually need a big house to fit all of their kids! I know they won’t all be living here at the same time but you still need a big house for 8 sims to live comfortably!

09-28-18_10-30-38 PM

This is their home complete with the knight statue guarding the bathroom door.

09-28-18_10-31-36 PM

Now to work on getting these two married!

09-28-18_10-35-08 PM

She looks amused for sure…

09-28-18_10-42-26 PM

First kiss! We are getting somewhere!

09-28-18_10-44-47 PM

And the proposal! It’s all happening so fast! I feel like they just met! Oh yeah….

09-28-18_10-46-28 PM

They are exchanging vows. I just love how Alvin is posed in this picture.

09-28-18_10-46-38 PM

They are officially married! Yay!

09-28-18_10-47-36 PM

Time to get this family started!

09-28-18_10-49-33 PM

Alvin has had a pretty eventful day! This particular smile is not because he just got out of bed with his new wife but because he just got into the Tech Guru Career! He is now a Live Chat Support Agent!

09-28-18_10-50-19 PM

And it’s a good thing since it seems we have a positive pregnancy test!

09-28-18_10-52-50 PM

Now study that cooking skill! I don’t want any fires and you will be cooking for many little people!

09-28-18_10-53-55 PM

I send Alvin exploring to dig up and collect stuff to start out our house fund.

09-28-18_10-59-37 PM

I also have him studying the gardening skill so they can grow their own food and sell all the excess! They will both be doing the gardening and so will their offspring once they are old enough.

09-28-18_11-02-03 PM

They are eating their first home cooked meal together!

09-28-18_11-04-31 PM

They seem so comfortable together even though they just met!

09-28-18_11-10-18 PM

First night on their new lawn. Maybe someday they will have a house on it!

09-28-18_11-29-10 PM

Hi! My name is Duhmee and I am a Sims 4 Newbie! For some reason I had it in my head that you needed to buy planters to have a garden….I quickly learned that I was wrong but oh well! Starting up the garden so they can eat and have a house and stuff!

09-28-18_11-30-24 PM

Gardening together!

09-29-18_8-53-31 PM

We scavenged enough to be able to buy a cheap computer that Alvin needs for his job performance!

09-29-18_9-27-00 PM

Yeah I totally forgot to take a “Baby is Coming!” Picture so here she is back from the hospital with her bright red plumbob!

09-29-18_9-27-39 PM

And meet Baby girl #1 Betty! I decided to name all the babies starting with the letter B. Should be pretty tricky by the end lol. If there are any spare boys or girls outside the required 12 I may choose different letters for their names.

09-29-18_9-28-40 PM

Look! We feed the baby! How exciting! No really….Sim babies are pretty boring so you will notice that there wont be many pics until she becomes a toddler!

09-29-18_9-30-36 PM

Alvin got a promotion! He also became a dad while he was at work and he has no idea yet! Maybe the Sims 5 will make the option to call your husband frantically at work while you are in labor lol.

09-29-18_9-31-38 PM

He goes over to meet his daughter right away! Awwwww!!!

09-29-18_9-35-09 PM

Yep! Still lawn living with a baby!

09-29-18_10-09-33 PM

Baby days are over! Told you there wouldn’t be many pics during the baby days!

09-29-18_10-13-59 PM

Betty was given the inquisitive trait. Should be fun. Toddler that constantly wants to learn!

09-29-18_10-16-52 PM

Also we don’t currently have the funds for a dresser or a mirror so….no makeover for this toddler yet! lol As you can see behind her though we are starting to put up walls for the house!

09-29-18_10-27-33 PM

*insert colorful language here*

09-29-18_10-28-17 PM

Impressed that she runs away from the fire with the toddler. Not impressed that now no one can put the fire out or call for the fire department….. Obviously I didn’t think to put a smoke alarm on the lawn….

09-29-18_10-28-24 PM

Hero in action right there!

09-29-18_10-28-57 PM

Now what?

09-29-18_10-30-12 PM

Called Alvin home from work early hoping that he can put out the fire!

09-29-18_10-30-47 PM

YOU BETTER NOT DIE! I HAVE FAILED MANY CHALLENGES BUT NEVER IN THE FIRST CHAPTER!!!

09-29-18_10-31-05 PM

Fire is out luckily! And no one died so I get to make a Chapter 2 at some point! Gonna leave it here for now because I find this Chapter was eventful enough! lol See you next time!
