Newlyweds Paige and Trevor Bowen start getting settled into their new home. There is a nice garden space, and Paige hopes to get a harvest with quick vegetables before the first frost.
She enjoys the pear tree which has already had the summer for growth. There are more pears than they could possibly ever eat, which isn’t a problem with her family members all too happy to receive pears.
It isn’t too long before she starts to feel nauseous at all hours.
A quick test, and she shares the news with Trevor that evening over dinner.
They are due in July.
Violet-Adele and Etienne head into the hospital with a scheduled delivery. Dr. Morgan wasn’t inclined to schedule one, but Violet-Adele was quite persuasive.
Normally calm and level-headed, Violet-Adele’s confidence is taking a hit with each escalating contraction. Everyone told her the pain of delivery was worth the baby at the end, but she isn’t sure.
Etienne can’t stop smiling. He’s dreamed of this moment since she first walked into the architect firm all the way around the world in Paris.
As sweet as he is, Vi wishes he’d shut up about memory lane. In this exact moment she’d like to tell her old self to run away fast!
Her words don’t hurt Etienne’s feelings, he was warned that labor pains can cause all sorts of lashing out.
She is excited to meet the baby, but she isn’t sure why they couldn’t have adopted instead. She was adopted, she could have been a great mother to an adopted baby. Or what about a surrogacy with both their parts but another woman? They had the money!
Those insanities were running through her head until she was told it was time to push.
Morgan announced the baby crowning and a head full of hair. Immediately they were entranced, except for Vi who wished the baby was there already!
With their daughter’s arrival, both parents are over the moon.
They were pleased to announce the arrival of their daughter, Noémie Bernard.
Cole and Lucy London celebrate their 36th anniversary with a quiet brunch out in Millwood. They make plans for their retirement which is approaching soon. Cole isn’t as excited to retire as Lucy, but the talk of travel help entice him. Cole would feel better about retiring if his son was on the path to take control of the law firm, as it is, he isn’t sure what will happen with his legacy.

Notes: After Noémie’s arrival my hospital lot kept crashing, so it severely limited my pictures. I’m excited for her genetics, she has her Dad’s brown eyes and Mom’s brown hair.
Sadly it was time for Ethan to pass. I feel most sad for Caitlyn and Thomas; she has no surviving parents when she eventually gets married.
Cole doesn’t know what will happen with his family’s law firm, and I’m with him. Milo did start rolling school related wants at the very end of his session, so maybe there’s hope? I haven’t done the math to see.
Poor Paige, I’ve never had a sim get so sick while pregnant. She is constantly puking, every time she eats, when she wakes up, and when she gets home from work. She’s having a rough time as a homeowner as well.
I’m possibly going on a hiatus. Just a lot of things happening on top of my usual crazy schedule. We will see so just a heads up that it may happen.
Thanks for reading!
