In round 8, Penelope gave birth to twins, Indira (in the picture) and Adela, and unfortunately, her and Cerdric’s first daughter Nerissa (who struggled with her health since birth) died at her child birthday. But on a happier note, Penelope is pregnant again and her sister Victoria is expecting her first child with Odoac as well. Which means lots of babies this round. =P
The first day wasn’t really eventful, though. ^^” Here we have Darmian looking after his niece Adela. <3
Penelope and Darmian playing the drums.
And Darmian talking to Victoria’s belly. ^_^
So, uhh, generally a lot of Darmian. I have no idea how that happened. XD
The next morning, Victoria’s going into labour.
And gives birth to a little boy, Eusebio, who sadly got no health points (even a negative score to be precise) to his name. D:
He’s getting another chance at his toddler birthday, so everyone keep your fingers crossed. :<
Penelope taking care of Adela. ^o^
And that’s actually the first picture of the head of the household, Cerdric. XD
Good job, self. *pats shoulder* ^^”
Jasper passes by to visit his two brothers. The only ones that survived until now. :<
And Penelope is being a storybook wife and makes dinner for everyone. :3
Toddler cuteness. <3
And Darmian taking care of yet another child that’s not his (because he actually does that a lot). =P But he apparently enjoys it and neither Penelope nor Victoria nor Cerdric mind having less work, so… Win-win situation.
While we’re on the subject of Darmian loving children…
Luna’s already pregnant by Phyros, though, and she’s also starting to get older, so I don’t know whether that will ever work out for Darmian. =/ For Luna’s relationship with Phyros that might be best anyway.
Jasper and Darmian playing with their nieces. <3
And it’s time for Penelope to give birth.
It’s another blond boy, Bradan, who’s luckily in better health than his cousin. ^_^
A couple hours later, poor Bradan is in dire need of a diaper change.
But his parents are kinda busy. ^^”
Luckily, Victoria’s coming to his rescue.
Adela is quite talented and managed to earn 3 creativity and 2 mechanic skill points. :3
(I cap toddler’s skills at 3 points btw.)
And Indira isn’t doing bad either. She earned 3 mechanic points and is now working on her first creativity point. Even if it doesn’t look as though she’s got the hang of it, yet.
Varius passing by and meeting his two new nephews. Which was convenient as he wanted to meet someone new anyway. =P
Then Lovia passed by…
Not much to say about that. XD
Time flies and it is already Eusebio’s first birhday. =/
In case anyone has forgotten, he was born with a negative health score.
And sadly loses another 10 points. D:
This household seems to have really bad luck with their children. :< First Nerissa, now Eusebio.
And he’s such a cutie. D: But good looks can’t save you from sickness…
I feel so sorry for Victoria. ;_; And I don’t even think Odoac got to know his first child. =(
Rest in peace, little one. <3
Eusebio’s death hits Victoria really hard and she goes into aspiration failure.
Say hello to the flour bag baby. I have a feeling, we’ll see it a couple of times before the round is over. :<
Eusebio gets a little grave right next to Nerissa’s.
The next day, we have another family member visit: Samael. ^_^
And he’s spending some time with his grandchildren. <3
The following evening, it’s time for more birthdays.
First Indira, who’s still in great health.
And then Adela, who’s in good health. :3
Post make-over and they’re both adorable. <3
But we’re not done with birthdays, yet. :D
Bradan gains a few health points and is still not doing great, but I’m quite certain that he’ll be fine.
Bradan after make-over. And I must admit, Penelope and Cerdric are making pretty awesome looking children. <3 I’m excited to see them all grown up. ^_^
I wouldn’t do that if I were you, Adela. :<
And I also realised at that moment that Indira and Adela barely know each other. :O Most of my twin toddlers spend a lot of time cuddling each other. But those two apparently didn’t.
I still really love Darmian’s and Victoria’s relationship. They are really close and spend a lot of time together, but it is purely platonic. And, I don’t know, that just makes me happy. XD
And it’s quite likely what Victoria needs the most at the moment. She is getting along with Odoac just fine, but they are not in love and don’t really see each other that much.
Penelope isn’t exactly in a great mood either. =/
Not having a wife or kids of his own has its advantages as well. Mostly lots of free time to spend playing the drums in Darmian’s case. Which makes him the first one to maximize his creativity skill. :O
And the last day for this household. :>
Cerdric spends some time with his precious hand mirror. =P
Adela and Indira are starting the day with a game of catch. They might manage to become friends after all. ^o^
Little Bradan spends his time inside playing. <3
Now that Bradan is a toddler, Cerdric and Penelope are trying to become pregnant again.
And Odoac actually passed by.
To fall in love with Victoria.
As of now, she doesn’t reciprocate his feelings, though. But who knows what the future holds up for those two. =P
Darmian spend most of the day playing the drums, again. Much to Dione’s delight. =P
And he actually managed to get into the zone. :O
Some Penelope/Cerdric cuteness. <3
(I might have been reading too many mangas lately and spontaneously had the urge to give them a couple name. XD How about Cernelope? =P)
And a little suprise to end the round :O
