Anderson 2 – Round 21: ‘The Look of Love, Pt. 3′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , — Mao @ 10:36 am

Kate is happy that her son has found the love of his life and she’s even more overjoyed that they’re having children.  Hugh is thankful for his mother’s help, but he wishes she’d spend more time on herself.

Hugh and Kenya were quite happy with their life thus far.  They were especially pleased with the addition of their baby, Lydia.  It had been a pretty effortless pregnancy, but Kenya was sure she didn’t want to find work and would instead remain home and care for the baby.  Kate had to work and Hugh preferred to give his mother some free time, even if she didn’t want it.

It was a good thing that Kate was around.  Kenya seemed to have fallen sick rather quickly after Lydia was born.  The flu had been going around, both Kate and Hugh had suffered from it briefly.  Kenya felt as if she’d got the worst of it.  It was all she could do to lie on the couch and watch rerun movies on network television.

When Lydia’s birthday came around and Kenya still felt sick, she was sure something else was up.  Lydia was adorable, though she looked more like her father than anything.  Kate loved playing with her and was even less prone to ‘take time off’.  Kenya needed her help, Kate was sure that she wasn’t sick, but pregnant again.  Kate would get the house full of babies she always wanted, even if she wasn’t necessarily the one giving birth to them.

Of course, Kate had been right about Kenya–she was pregnant.  She began to feel a little better, but not much.  Even so, she spent as much time helping and playing with Lydia as she possibly could.  She refused to miss out on her first baby’s first just because she felt horrible.

Even with her stubborn declaration of helping, most of the work still fell to Hugh or Kate.  Kenya was simply too busy eating everything in sight and then trying not to throw it all back up.  This pregnancy was completely opposite of the one she experienced with Lydia.  It was horrible!  Kate joked that it could be twins and Kenya thought that it must if it was such a trial.

Everyone was quite shocked when Kenya returned with only one baby.  It was another girl they named Rosa.  She had red hair and the almond brown Yu eyes.  It was quite startling, especially since she had Kenya’s coloring otherwise.  Old genetics are funny like that, they’ll sneak up when you least expect them.

Lydia became a child not long after, hyper and happy.  She shared her father’s enthusiasm for the dogs, much to Kenya’s chagrin.  It wasn’t that she didn’t like them, but the house didn’t seem big enough for three!  Especially with Lydia running around with them and chasing them all over.  Kenya was forced to tell Lydia to take it outside more times than she cared to and things had certainly been broken since Lydia had grown into a rambuncious youth.


Note from Mao: Lydia is adorable!  After I loaded their house, Kenya and Hugh immediately went at it on the couch, lol.  Kate was sleeping.  Horrible!  Apparently that was enough to result in Rosa.  I really have no idea how these two are not having twins when they both have the ‘twin’ family benefit.  Very strange.  Rosa’s coloring surprised me.  I’m always glad when those almond brown eyes pop up!


  1. Aww, Lydia is precious. And I love how Rosa got the Yu eyes! :D

    Me, too! They are kinda rare. :)

  2. Rosa will be gorgeous if her sister is anything to go by – she’s adorable.

    Be careful what you wish for! Not long after I started wondering whether my twins benefit was working, I had twins coming out of my ears!

    Haha, oh boy. I really don’t want an influx of twins! They are way too common for me as it is. :(

  3. D’awww…this family is so cute! Hugh is such a sweet guy, I’m glad he’s in a good position. I’m also glad Kate’s happily settling into the role of grandma and Kenya seems to be a good mama. Lydia looks so cute! Rosa will no doubt be the same. <3 Saaa! This house fills me with fuzzies.

    Yu eyes, ftw.

    This family is thankfully pretty normal. Hopefully it stays that way, Hugh does have Romance as a secondary…

  4. I love genetics. I can’t wait unitl I get on my third and fourth generations to see what they pop up with.

    Lydis is adorable, and I’m glad her mom wants more babies. Poor woman though, such a different pregnancy than her last.

    Me, too! :D I think this is actually the furthest along I’ve let an entire neighborhood go.

  5. Another baby so soon? Wow, Hugh and Kenya sure aren’t taking their time. Zhou and River should definately take a leaf out of their book.
    You’re lucky if Hugh’s really being a tame little half-Romance Sim – even having Pleasure as secondary is enough for most of my sims to constantly roll wants to cheat on their three-bolt spouses with random people they have barely any chemistry with.
    Yay for almond brown Yu eyes! As far as I can tell from the pictures, they really are gorgeous. Do you happen to know where you got them? (Or any of your founders’ eyes, for that matter – the only ones I recognise are Janine’s)

    Yeah, they really went for it, LOL. I was kind of surprised! I’m trying to keep an eye on Hugh, so far, so good. He and Kenya have three bolts. As for the eyes, uuuh… I can’t remember where they all came from. Derek and Gina’s eyes (the gray ones in the Saunders line) are Enayla, as well as the almond brown Yu ones Jun had. The others were all realistic types, except Janine’s. Wish I could remember. :(

  6. Hahahaaa! It’s spreading! Couch Wooohoo is a deadly virus! lmao.

    Man- I guess they wanted to have their kids out and done with as soon as possible. That’s how I got mine done, they are 22 months apart for a reason! Hehee! The genetics are sure getting crazy with the new generations. I love the surprise colors!

    Blasted couch woohoo, LOL! :P Yeah, I can see how you might want to get the birthing process over quickly and enjoy the rest!

  7. I am jealous! All your kids are so cute! At least it’s filling me with the desire to finish my Legacy week so I can blog it and get over to my Prosperity. Be careful what you wish for… I wished for twins and got trips. And then twins. Redheads make me smile. We need more of them in the neighborhood.
    Generation four. You must be so proud.

    Wooohoo for generation four! I wasn’t trying to figure out what I was on and now I know. :) Thankfully, no triplets for me. I don’t have that hack.
