“The cow says moo.” The sound of the twins playing with toys had become constant ambiance, good thing neither of the twins were loud since they liked to stay up all night.
“Stop it Ley.” Lupe couldn't help but giggle herself, when the dogs decide to give toddlers tongue baths. Leylic's behavior also help Lupe and Jay pick which pup to keep.
The day of the twins birthday, Lupe made a quick call, Frowil, the male puppy would be put up for adoption for a spare to give a good home too.
It was hard to believe the twins were already becoming kids.
Weather grew up in a pirate outfit. “Momma, look I can talk now.” “I can't look at words Weather.” Lupe felt relieved, neither twin had learned their toddler skills but it didn't seem to matter.
“Momma look I have hands.” Comet grew into some nice pink pjs.
Comet and Weather were still pretty much identical but Lupe was notice more differences in behavior.
After the party Ax hung around until the wee hours of the morning playing fetch with the dogs. “You can't play fetch with the cats.” He told his sister when Lupe asked him how long he was going to stay.
“The boys are asleep, want to try for more?” “Two aren't enough Jay?” “Nope, I'm a family sim. I want as many as there are stars.” “I'm not quite up for that Jay, but maybe another one, I want a girl.”
Needless to say, they rushed to their bedroom with wedding night glee.
Lupe was mildly surprised that she had morning sickness, she had never had problems with her first pregnancy.
She called Mary who was also pregnant with her second child. Mary calmed her frantic questions and told to relax and eat plenty of chocolate cream.
Lupe saw the twins off to their first day of school, the house seemed so empty with childish giggles.
Jay receive a lucky promotion at work and got to come home a little early that day.
Jay headed to Amelia's Closet and got the boys new outfits as a late birthday present.
Weather picked out something similar to his piratey garb.
Weather liked to entertain himself by teaching Frolic tricks. All the dogs got along great with the boys.
Comet decided to start a small garden. He heard that there was a special vegetable that would make you smart.
Lupe received a pinball machine at work, at first she was wary about having it in the house because they were given 5 simleons every few minutes they play. She didn't want to have an unfair advantage over her brother. Fortunately the family rarely played with it and her worries forgotten.
Lupe's pregnancy progress along normally, she found she wasn't quite as exhausted as she had been with the twins.
“And then Azure tossed me the ball and it over the fence into Chester Gieke's yard.” The family life had settled down enough that they got to eat diner together almost every night.
Jay got another promotion in the music career, together with Lupe martery pay they managed to the house stuccoed and railing put on the porch. Which was good because summer was just around the corner.
Summer started with rainstorms and promotions. Jay was moving up in the music career. He really wanted a position in the law enforcement.
With a extra money, they managed to remodel the bathroom, it wasn't perfect.
As she ran water in the new tub, Lupe felt the familiar pangs in her middle, the baby was coming. This time she was home alone with only the maid.
She soon gave birth to a baby boy, she named Koi. Koi looked like his brothers before him with black hair and green eyes. Koi is named after an Asian carp commonly kept in outdoor ponds. Koi are beautiful fish and often grow three feet long.
Soon the contractions started again. She was having another set of twins!
Soon Rosy was born. Lupe finally had a little girl. Rosy is named after the rosy barb. A fish that comes in a wide variety of color variations and unlike other barbs it is not known for fin-nipping.
In order to afford cribs for the twins, they had to sell the shower.
Comet was ethunsaic about having a younger sister. He cooed at her when Jay took out of the crib to feed her.
Weather also couldn't resist the chance to talk with little Rosy.
With everyone busy with the new babies, Comet's little garden was soon forgotten. All the tomato plants died. Comet didn't worry too much his cousin Azure had a garden, she had promised share her eggplants with him. When she got that far of course.
Lupe had to go back to work after the twins were born, luckily Kendall Lawson was a good nanny and practically smother them with love.
All too soon it was the twins birthdays. Lupe and Jay decided not to have a party. Life was a little too hectic for a lot of commotion.
First to grow up is Koi and the first born disease rears is clonastic head. Koi is just like Comet. Koi is really neat, outgoing, really active, has no sense of humor and is mean.
Rosy also suffers from first born disease. She however is a copy of Weather. Neat, not shy, active, serious and nicer than Comet and Koi.
The twins were exhausted after the excitement of growing. Jay managed to fix Koi's hair and settle him to bed before the toddler passed out.
Rosy gave him a run around but he eventually caught her and put her to bed as well.
Koi and Rosy like Comet and Weather before them like to be up late into the night.
“Momma, Momma, I got an A+!” “Good job hun, now let momma sleep.” Lupe often had to take long naps during the to catch up on lost sleep.
Jay tired of the twins being awake all night traded in their cribs for blankets. It wasn't the best situation, but it would have to do.
He also got them a toddler table to give them something to do other than snuggle on the dogs.
Weather did really well in school, Comet struggled he often had problems focusing and learned slowly.
Comet's poor grades didn't effect his social life. Classmates came home frequently. Tristen Riley tagged along with the boys the most.
Azure came over every now and then as well. Comet and her grew pretty close.
“Hey Tris, umm would you like to come to my birthday party tomorrow?” “Why are you all shy, of course I'll come bonehead.” “You will?”
The next morning the boys played in their room before their parents woke. “Tris is coming?” “Yep, so is Stephen Bar.” “Did you really have to invite him?” “Azure asked if he could come.”
Soon the party had started. Comet and Weather stood at their cakes waiting for the guest to gather around. “Hey, Weather you're still gonna play with me even though you're gonna be teens, right?” “Of course Tris, why wouldn't I?”
Weather grew up first and decide he wanted fame more than anything. The best he could do that is to be twenty sims best friends. Now he was needed to get out of this shirt.
Comet grew up a heartbeat after his brother. He felt a strong calling for the opposite sex. Best way to pick up chicks was to follow in his father's footsteps and be a rock god.
To everyone's surprise Stephen Bar grew up shortly after the boys.
As did Tris. “I guess you won't have to play with Bonehead.” She told Weather. “I guess not.”
During the party the matchmaker decided to leave the Fresh Family a magical lamp.
Lupe immediately takes up on the opportunity “I want peace of mind.” Lupe! I don't like that, it gives you an unfair advantage over Ax. “He'll understand. Pony, I'm tired of being tired and no getting promoted at work.” Fine.
~Interrupting current legacy program to bring explanations.~ Sorry I say this fast while Leylic is getting beat up. As far as writing style goes I'm trying to slip better into narrative mode. However, when my sims decide to do something I disapprove of I might slip into string-puller mode and lay down the law. Sorry for any confusion.
After achieving permyplat bliss Lupe decides to cash in on the aspiration rewards she had been missing out on. She seemed to forget that there was a party going on and neglected the guests, resulting in the party being a snoozer. The first bad party since Comet and Weather were born.
She also bought smart milk for the toddlers. The genetically enhanced milk was said to aid toddlers in brain development.
Lupe did notice the improvement in Koi when she taught him to speak. He would have rather played with his toys but he did learn to speak very quickly.
“I'm sooo hungry and there's nothing good to eat.” And this is where I leave you for this chapter. I have started writing the next update, it should be out in a few days.
