The Birth, Part 1

It’s time! It hasn’t been a real-life nine months, but I’m too excited to wait. :D So the timeline of Kenzie and her friends is slightly sped up a bit, but only by a couple of months.

Behold! Cheyenne is ready! And I’ll be writing this post in story form to try something new.

**********

Cheyenne walked into the living room - or rather, waddled - when suddenly she was overcome with a sharp pain in her abdomen.

It felt like cramps, until she doubled over and realized that it was a contraction. Her first thought besides the pain was, “I need to call Austin. I can’t do this without him!”

Since Austin was already at the science facility, which doubled as the town hospital, Cheyenne frantically called for an ambulance. She didn’t trust herself to drive in this condition. After hanging up, she called her husband. His frantic tone matched her own. When she arrived at the hospital, he was waiting for her.

They were escorted to the maternity ward and given a private room. Cheyenne dressed in a loose hospital gown and breathed in and out deeply as Austin held her hand.

"I"m so scared," she whimpered to him. He squeezed her hand tighter.

"You can do this," he reassured. "I’m right here with you. And I love you."

"I love you, too."

"I’m really eager to meet the new life we created."

"So am I. I can’t wait to bring it into the world."

"I’m sure whatever it is, boy or girl, it will be as beautiful as its mother."

"I’m sure some of its father’s genes will get in there, too."

Suddenly, Cheyenne sat upright and grasped her stomach, her face contorted into an expression of agony.

"It hurts! Oh, Creator, it hurts! Austin, please help me!"

Austin held onto his wife’s shoulder. He didn’t know what else to do. The doctor came in and said soothingly, “It’s almost time, Mrs. Crowley. It won’t be much longer now.”

Cheyenne sat up higher and grasped her knees with her hands. Austin didn’t loosen his grip.

"Isn’t there something you can give her?" he barked at the doctor. "An epidural, perhaps?"

"It’s too late for that. Her labor is progressing rapidly, so there’s no time to administer it."

"You have to be kidding me!" Cheyenne wailed.

"Honey, you used to tell me that you’re a tough country girl, and that you could handle anything," Austin said with a chortle in a misguided attempt to lighten the mood. "Now you can experience your first labor and delivery the natural way."

"I’d rather fall off a horse ten times in a row."

The doctor got a laugh out of that one. A monitor beeped next to Cheyenne’s bed, and then the doctor came closer.

"It’s time to push," he coaxed. Cheyenne squeezed her eyes shut and Austin reluctantly let go and stepped back so that he was out of the way. The doctor positioned himself at Cheyenne’s feet.

Cheyenne’s whimpers became screams. She gripped the side of the bed, desperately trying not to writhe off of it, as Austin stood back and watched, wishing he could take his wife’s pain away. Beautiful as it was seeing Cheyenne give birth to their child, he knew that it was a painful experience. In that instant, he was grateful that he’d been born with a Y chromosome.

"I can see the head," the doctor stated. "You’re almost home now. Just one last push."

Cheyenne took a deep breath and pushed with all her might. Suddenly, a tiny figure was in the doctor’s hands and Cheyenne was breathing in a more relaxed way.

"Congratulations," the doctor said as he wrapped the baby in a blanket. "You have a…"

Part 2 will feature the baby’s gender, name, traits, etc.! Stay tuned!

Kenleigh and the Cow Plant

Thanks to jorgha’s Save Our Cow Plants video, announcement, and website, I decided to resume my Sims 4 adventures and have Kenleigh plant the cow berry seed she’d obtained!

After doing so, she whistles while she waters it.

image

Awww, look at it grow!

image

Let’s move it to the front yard so that any threatening passersby will be lured in by the cake and then eaten…

image

Behold! The fully mature cow plant!

image

She tried to feed it, but it apparently wasn’t hungry at that moment. So she pet it instead. :D

image

Lunch time! Now it’s hungry!

image

image

Play with the cow plant! Play with it! It’s the only pet we have in The Sims 4! :O

image

Now this? This is just insulting.

image

Yeah, I think that cow plant is insulted.

Sweet Treats

Kenleigh has moved into the new house I built! The first thing she does? Make a cupcake with the cupcake machine!

And now to bake some cookies! It doesn’t matter how bad your hygiene is; nothing gets in the way of tasty treats!

She looks so depressed. Her lip is trembling, and she’s pouting.

Don’t look at me like that. You were whining about being hungry and you fixed your own cookies. I can’t make you take a shower…wait…

Hallow Slough

So I broke down and built a brand new house for my Sim self to live in. I wanted one with more room and with enough rooms for all, or at least most of, the skills available. And now when I throw a party, the guests will have room to mingle and have fun, or even indulge in some skill-leveling of their own.

I also tried to stick to the New Orleans style (at least somewhat), which is the town that Willow Creek is in part based off of. I didn’t go with any particular interior design; just a combination of my country roots plus some slightly modern touches what with the den’s colors (my favorite color, spiceberry), and the like, and each room somewhat has its own color scheme since I like all colors and it’s hard to choose just one for the house I plan to permanently stay in (at least for now).

I even dug out some of the old screenshots I’d saved of Sims 3 decorating ideas and incorporated them into this house, considering I didn’t know if and when I’d be using them again in TS3!

I don’t think this is nearly as impressive as some of the houses I’ve seen so far, but perhaps I’ll do another one sometime, too. Of course, it’s said that you’re your biggest critic. I’ve seen lots of modern houses, but they’ve never been my strong point, Plus that style seems to be more for Oasis Springs and Kenleigh is in Willow Creek, which has more colonial/Victorian-type homes.

The new house is located on the Hallow Slough lot, which is right across the street from the Goth family! It is, of course, subject to change. And yes, I know that some rooms have the sky for a ceiling; I’m still learning a lot of the mechanics. Anyway, behold!

Random Kenleigh photos

Random photos taken of my Sims 4 self, Kenleigh Sims!

Cooking…you’re doing it wrong:

I mean, I’m not an expert, but I don’t think anything requires that much salt!

Eat your eggs.

Om nom nom

Nap time!

Even more nom noms at the park in Willow Creek:

Digging in Oasis Springs:

Found a ruby, sapphire, and other goodies!

Uh…in what reality, real or virtual, do I ever make a salad?! I’m not a rabbit! Seriously, I hate the stuff. Is this the game’s attempt at telling me I need to diet? >.<

That seems much more accurate.

Who put that door there? Oh wait…it was me.

Ever wonder what’s behind the bathtub curtain? Now you know:

Sitting on the floor is an awesome way to get clean!

Back to Oasis Springs! I’m on the hunt for a cow berry seed!

Finally got one! Let’s celebrate!

Don’t look at me like that. You just caught the necessary seed to grow a cow plant!

Oh, you’re hungry? Fine then. Shut up and eat your chips.

Want to buy static needs system…

Get your game on!

Rock and roll!

Wait…something’s missing…

That’s better.

I don’t know what that’s supposed to be, but I guess every artist has to start somewhere.

And one final parting gift: The frogs she caught, plus her guppy!

Sylvan Glades

Kenleigh found the sylvan tree and discovered the beautiful hidden area of Sylvan Glades of Willow Creek!

But first - frog hunting!

She did find a frog, I think just a common tree frog, but I could be wrong.

Time to get the tree ready!

What a gorgeous place!

Let’s go fishing!

Uh…I think it’s time to go home.

And that concludes the adventure of Sylvan Glades! More to come!
