@Carlaplays - So cool that Aki had twins. What is your baby count currently? I'm just curious but how do you know that London will be the next matriarch. Is Aki almost an elder?

@Carlaplays Thanks for the congrats on my twins and Congrats to you too for your twins! I like those names! @Sha2520032003 Yes, things are moving along great! No, I don't play with the vampire/alien incentive. At least not yet! Once Bebe gets around to Caleb, we'll see what happens. hehe Not sure if I'll have her pursue Vlad, probably not. But if I start running out of BDs, maybe... I shudder to think what his children will look like. I wouldn't mind seeing Caleb's kids around forever, but not Vlad's. o.O
Yeah, I like both trait generators and it would be nice if Bebe's children inherited her traits. But, I like the simplicity of James Turner's generator.
Alrighty, well the Gen 1 triplets aged up to children and then teens. Amaryllis has reached YA and moved out. So that's one I can officially count. Here's their child/teen pics.
The Gen 2 twins have aged up from toddlers to children now.
Plus, Bebe has another set of twins for Gen 3! 1 boy - Cosmos, Clingy and 1 girl - Camellia, Inquisitive. They're a day away from aging up to toddlers. Here's their Daddy, Joel Hunter. He's a Super Sim like his brother Josh.
Things got a little better with teens in the house helping out, especially Amaryllis before she moved out. Azalea and Aster won't be far behind, so they'll be moving out soon too. I gave Amaryllis a two-bedroom house in OS with plenty of room for her siblings so that's probably where they'll be going next.
Bebe is extremely close to finishing her Painter Extraordinaire aspiration, and her paintings are becoming more valuable now. She briefly had 12K until I remodeled the house a little. Got sick of looking at drywall and concrete, plus I made a few rooms bigger and gave them some better objects. So far she's had 7 children with 3 baby Daddies. Not too bad! I like that On Ley Line lot trait now. I didn't at first, felt like tearing my hair out. LOL But it's all good at the moment. Have a great week y'all and Happy Simming!
P.S. Do y'all mind that I post such big pics in here and rattle on about my challenge so much? I could just give brief details without pics if it's too much? Or maybe just smaller pics. Let me know! I don't want to overwhelm the thread. I'm just very enthusiastic right now. I'll probably be indifferent later on. "Hey guys, Bebe had some more rugrats.... meh Mkay, bye!" LOL I hope it doesn't get to that point, but we'll see...

Thanks @Carlaplays! I think Azalea is the prettiest Gen 1 triplet too! I thought Amaryllis was cuter as a child though. But then when she became a teen, she lost her chin! o.O I usually do some cosmetic surgery when that happens, but decided to leave physical characteristics alone for this challenge. Well, I still change their hair, eyebrows and give the ladies a bit of make-up. Azalea has a very bohemian look now that I just love. That off the shoulder top from CL pairs well with the MH bell bottom jeans.
I'm glad you don't mind the big pics and my musings about the challenge, I'm having a lot of fun so far. On that note, here's just one pic this time. I mostly took this shot only because I love the Fall colors in this game and the subtle sunset in the background. I thought the mini-renovation turned out okay too. At least it's got paint now and isn't just a box anymore. Although the additions make it look a little haphazard. lol
The front part jutting out on the left is a result of making the children/teen bedroom bigger, the right side addition is a result of making the kitchen bigger so I could add a dining table and chairs. Now they don't have to eat sitting on the couch or their bed all the time. lol Plus, I read that having children/teens set the table helps raise one of their character values. That little addition on the back is the baby nursery I added so their crying doesn't wake up anybody.
It's still very bare bones, but it's coming along. Can't wait until she earns some more simoleons to give it a proper renovation. I'll take an overhead of the inside later tonight. Happy Simming!

@SimAlexandria Thanks. I am really glad I decided to take a break from my save and I really needed that break from Sims, in general, too. Oh, wow. Your gen 2 is on baby number 7 for her? Nice! You are clipping right along now! Ugh, I hate the slob trait. I always dread that one when I get it in the random rolls.

@Hyunwoo_ssi LOL looks like you removed some CC from your game since there's a sim wandering around in their underwear.@sdhoey Your matriarch is pretty! adorable twins too.@Luclylu Welcome to the challenge. How is it going? Has your matriarch had her 1st baby yet? @Carlaplays Are you able to share more pictures of your kids?@ajarvis999 welcome to the challenge! Please feel free to share your story/challenge with us.@SalemSvartulv I downloaded some non-natural hair colors for toddlers and one of my most recent toddlers actually got the same color hair as my matriarch! I was so happy it finally happened. @Jadeleine Shoshana is soo cute!@Chellejo welcome back to the challenge. oh my gosh, that picture is soo cute!! it took me a moment to realize Fayth was climbing the stairs and not glitching out on shelves on the wall. LOL@Karababy52 yea.. I've played the NSB, but that challenge got complicated for me, so I've put it to rest, for now. LOL I thought I was getting better, but the cough started again. I was on antibiotics for pneumonia. I just hope it isn't a relapse. That was a great picture of Azalea protesting. I have to catch myself though when reading about sibling kids because you refer to them as gen 1 gen 2 etc.. when they are all of generation 1 matriarch.@SimAlexandria awesome family picture!

@SimAlexandria your hoiusehold looks lovely! I have a soft spot for dark-skinned sims! also, it's so funny when one of your sims ends up with all negative traits xD I think in my case it was my little Larimar who got that luck, she was Evil, self-absorbed and Mean! I kida wanted her to grow up with a negative value too, but shw was just a little too short in empathy xD
