Reed and Caroline Welsh’s oldest son, Alex celebrates his eleventh birthday. He had been a surprise that landed a rushed wedding. But they’ve been making the best of it the past few years, and are happy out in Millwood in their new house.
Alex was rather anti-social in grade school, and still prefers reading over spending time with people.
Perla Martinez is heading to Eastborough University in the fall, she hasn’t decided on a career persay, but has decided on a History major. She’s interested in culture and entertainment, and her parents are worried that her major won’t suit her in the real world, but Perla insisted on studying History. She’s been assigned to Miner Hall, and is still dating Julius McCarthy.
Lainey Grimsley graduated with a 3.2 GPA in Biology, hoping to land a job at the aquarium her Mom, Mayor Bekah Grimsley has promised to build for the people. In the mean time she’s living back at home, waiting for Alice to graduate so they can get an apartment together, and working as a housemaid to build a savings; it is not ideal and she hopes to remedy the sucky job quickly.
Hadley Millett finished her senior year with a 4.0 GPA, barely boosting her total GPA to the minimum 3.5 required to be eligible for Medical school. She’s already been assigned her housing for next fall, but is in no hurry for summer to end, planning to spend it at home in Millwood, lounging poolside without a book in sight.
Chad Sumner also graduated university with a 3.7 GPA in Philosophy, he is looking for a place downtown, and filling out applications at local businesses. He blew off his Dad’s wishes for him to be a lawyer, and is rather aimless currently.
Wed in May was Meme Popper and Daniel Blackshire at their new home out in Millwood.
Adam was able to snag a spot in the wedding party, leading to a wonderful evening with Paloma.
Chris thinks it’d be more wise to be friendly toward the doctor that has control of medicine, but Emma hasn’t listened to logic for nine months and he keeps his opinion to himself. He tries massaging her where Nurse Caroline instructed, and helping her breath when a contraction comes on, but overall he feels pretty helpless to actually aid in the situation.
Unfortunately for Emma, she has to do everything twice this time around, and she is not kidding when she screams that he is getting the boys snipped. She is done with this procreating business, and she’s vowed to murder him if he ever puts her in this place again.
Emma never imagined herself with kids, let alone three, but if she was forced to face that reality, she imagined she’d have all boys in the same way her sister Grace had all daughters. But number three turns out to be a she, looking at her with the soft, sleepy brown eyes of her Grandfather.
She never intended to have this many kids, but she isn’t wrecked by it, and she takes back her offer to give the bad twin to Grace. She’d rather send Evan off when she starts liking boys instead.
Labor wasn’t difficult, they were both besides themselves with anticipation.
Nadia would even say that delivery was no sweat, and her smile didn’t falter. It felt like this little person was already apart of their family, and they couldn’t wait to finally meet.
A bright eyed, freckly baby girl joined their family; Mavis Browning.
They were thrilled at their new addition, and Luca was absolutely smitten, a daughter that took after the love of his life, how could he have been so lucky?
Kai couldn’t be happier with a little sister to play with, he didn’t care what the baby was, he’s been jealous of his friend Logan having a built in playmate, even if Mallory drooled and threw tantrums; he could hardly wait!
Notes: This is my last update until August, just haven’t been able to play often to keep up the pace this summer.
I love the photo of Adam and Paloma, she smiled at him on her own, and looks like she could just melt into him.
Mostly though I love all my new babies! Genetic talk forthcoming!
Dax and Evan both got in between skintones, Dax has Emma’s blue eyes, and Evan/Chaz both have George’s brown eyes. Dax got red recessive, and Evan the blond. I really like the diversity with these two just on their dna chart.
Nadia was in legit labor during the “catch” photo, and she was seriously smiling! She was quite happy about having their baby. Mavis takes after her Mom with the freckle skintone and bright blue eyes, however the one thing I didn’t want her to get… Luca’s nose, she got. At least on a girl it’s not as pronounced as it is for boys. I’d really like to weed out that terribly long Traver nose. However I adore her, and I took a load of pics of Nadia and Luca with Mavis during their hospital stay, I’ll post them to tumblr after this has been live for a few days.
I don’t think I mentioned it in the wedding post, but Luca took Nadia’s last name. I have plenty of Traver’s, and I don’t think he’d miss that association. Plus Nadia would never change her name, she’s rather attached to her identity.
Medical School Blabber:
Hadley just barely made it, she rolled tons of academic wants which saved her, so she gets to head to med school. I’ve decided that Hadley wants to be a surgeon, so she will be working towards the requirement of that field (Surgeon – 4 mechanical, 2 charisma, 4 body, 4 logic, 1 creativity, 5 friends). She will write articles for the skill points. Friends will be her networking in the medical field, likely I will have the current doctors do some teaching to give her the opportunity to impress someone. I will also allow friends that are close to medical field professions to count as well, so if she became best friends with Hazel, then Hazel could recommend her to Morgan.
Surgeons can have 4 years of med school, then 4-5 years for residency. I haven’t decided if I will keep those same lengths or halve them, Hadley is my guinea pig. She currently resides in a house in the university neighborhood (lot tour going up on tumblr), and she’s allowed to be a Medical Technician to help pay for college, which costs $10,000 a year for med school. Year 3 she will start clinical rotations in South Port as well, and get to wear cute scrubs, which I’m very excited about!
I am surprised at Lainey’s low GPA, she’d always been a strong student and Isaac really derailed her. Which is no surprise that he did, considering he’s flunked TWICE! Not consecutively, so he gets to stay, and I think he enjoys the ladies so I don’t imagine him dropping out. Funny guy actually rolled and wrote his term paper, but was missing two skill points so it didn’t do anything.
Hadley – 3.5 GPA (Biology Major)
Lainey – 3.2 GPA (Biology Major)
Chad – 3.7 GPA (Philosophy Major)
Isaac – Academic Probation
Thanks for reading and see y’all in August! Looking forward to seeing all the simmy goodness I’ve missed!
