ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE
BABY 26. 27 and 28
**Author’s note: this post is not written in the correct tense…most of it is past tense and I am sorry for that. I should have gone back and corrected it, but I just wanted to finally get it out. I apologize for the mess and hope you still enjoy.***
Ashby went to take Lockland up to his crib, when Taloria stopped her.
“Mom, what is that?” She asked in her most quizzical voice.
“This is your new brother, Lockland.” Ashby was very tired after giving birth, but she always made time for her children.
“He doesn’t look like daddy.” Taloria cocked her head to the right and look upon the small babe before her.
Ashby sighed. How could she explain the situation to the young girl? She just smiled at the girl, reached up and bushed her thumb across her daughters chin in a loving manor and said, “Sweetie, Lockland is tired. I need to take him to bed.”
Taloria as okay with that and went to find Addison to play before it was their time to go to bed.
Wren got asked out for her very first date by a guy from another school, they met at the park, but she was heartbroken when he didn’t show up. She had saved her allowance for a new dress and hair do, and she felt that it was for nothing. Ashby tried to explain to her that these things happened and that it was him and not her, but she would not believe her. We think this is the even that triggered Wren to become a difficult teen.
One sunny afternoon Ashby was sitting under the canopy of her newly redecorated deck, being a vampire didn’t allow her to be outside for very long in the sun and she missed out on what her kids were doing so Asher and A.J. built her the deck, when Addison came around the side of the house yelling at her.
“Mommy, Mommy, look!” She ran up to Ashby and kept waiving a magazine at her.
She was so excited that it took Ashby several minutes to get the young girl to settle down enough to hand her what she had been waiving in her face. Ashby was stunned to learn that she had been featured in Challenge Mother’s Monthly. She had been interviewed when she first moved to Sunset Valley, but she never expected to be featured. This was a spectacular even for the Lemi household and it was all the kids talked about for weeks. Addison even took the magazine to school for show and tell.
Holden has always looked up to his big sister Wren, and seeing her pull pranks and putting hair dye in her shower when he was a child gave him the prank bug. From ding dong ditch to setting frogs loose into the school he spent his free time pulling pranks.
Asher and Ashby finally got frustrated with all the trouble he was getting into and they enrolled him some afterschool activities. There he and his childhood friend Bella Bachelor became close. After school they were together in their activities and on the weekends they were together doing homework or just spending time around town.
They were very cute together.
The vampire in Ashby started to take over. She was out for one of her late night strolls when the urge to hunt hit her. This time her target was none other than her best friend Violet Newbie.
Luckily Ashby’s Sim side was able to get the Vampire side under control and she fed on someone else.
She didn’t like what she was becoming but she still felt it was a worthy punishment for letting down her girls.
Even though Lockland wasn’t his biological child Asher didn’t love him any less. He spent a lot of time with the babe and took him outdoors during the day when Ashby wasn’t able to. He still hated Darko for the why he treated his wife, but he couldn’t hate the outcome.
The two spent oodles of time together and Lockland had no clue that Asher wasn’t his daddy.
While Ashby encourages Holden improve on his schooling and skills Wren devises a devious plan.
And that night as Holden got ready for bed he was the victim of that devious plan when the sink went haywire and soaked him from head to toe, the pranks in the Lemi household was getting out of control. Would this behavior catch on with Addison, Taloria and Lockland?
Where are you going my little one
Where are you going my baby my own
Turn around and your 2, turn around and your 4
Turn around and you’re a young man walking out the door.
Turn around Turn around
Turn around and you’re a young man walking out the door.
Ashby sang to her little boy. She knew it was only a matter of time before it was time to age Lockland into a tot.
Holden and Bella continued to spend a lot of time together. They two were inseparable and Ashby and Asher thought that she was a good influence on him for his pranks and misbehaving had subsided.
It was time to age Lockland up and he inherited his mom’s hair coloring and his dads red eyes. He was a very handsome toddler and was loved by the whole Lemi household.
In one of his last rebellious acts Holden added blue and green to his hair. Actually I think he looks pretty handsome so his act backfired on him.
“I’m gonna get you, I’m gonna to get you.” Asher teases Lockland as he tickles him with the “claw”.
With Ashby still a vampire and not allowed in the sun much Asher spends even more time with Lockland making sure that he got out side for fun and fresh air time. Ashby felt so left out, but she was so glad to have a man like Asher as her husband.
Who are these fine men? Oh yes they are the Lemi twins, A.J. on the right and Asher on the left. Violet, A.J., Ashby and Asher get together quite often. Ashby is grateful that she moved to Sunset Valley where she had some many people that loved her. After her parents died she felt quite alone in Twinbrook.
Addison is the dreamer of the family. She would go to bed early and just sit in her bed thinking of new and interesting stories.
Then she would talk Taloria into dressing up with her and acting out the story.
Once upon a time there lived two princesses. The land had come upon hard times when pink dragon (dinosaur costume was all they had) threatened the livelihood. He would swoop down on unsuspecting people on his flying contraption and scare them half to death. The people of the land wanted the princess to save and protect the, but the two young girls didn’t know what to do. One day a strangely dressed stranger came to the princesses. He told them that he was from the future and that he could help them with their problem. The girls took him up on his offer and the man in the white suit disappeared into the fog and neither he nor the pink dragon was heard from ever again.
She has such an imagination and the Lemi’s think that someday she will grow up to be a write or something creative like that.
Being a child of two vampires tends to show itself in the most inopportune times. Lockland is both a sweet and beautiful boy with a nasty temper and weird behaviors, like trying to suck the blood out of his teddy bear.
Tisk Tisk *Ashby* was this a good idea?
Time seems to flies when you’re having fun the old saying goes, and it was soon time for Lockland to be a child. What a handsome boy. He wears these goggles because he says he wants to be a super hero and save mommies like Ashby from mean doers, but no one has seen a super hero with a temper like his.
See what I mean?
A few days after Lockland aged up it was time for Wren to be a Young Adult. The Lemi’s had a family party (and me) and after Wren aged up and designed herself a new dress Ashby sat the kids down and told him a scary story.
Perhaps that imagination Addison has comes from her mommy.
Ashby decided that a picture with the kids before they leave is going to be a new tradition with the Lemi family. Asher was a bit excited about the prospect of Wren graduation and couldn’t keep himself from cheering. Perhaps he will be a little more calmed down when it is Holden’s turn.
What a breathtaking young woman she turned out to be.
The next morning the whole family dressed up in their Sunday best and headed to the court house where Wren graduated. After the ceremony she hugged her parents and siblings and got on a bus and headed to her new life. She was heading back to the land where her biological parents grew up in hopes she can find out more about her and Holden’s parents and life before the Lemi household.
What is happening at the Lemi household? Boys driving on the couch and a princess and a dinosaur playing video games?
Ah young love. Do you think that Bella will become Mrs. Starr Bright or do you think she will leave Holden and fulfill her destiny of being with the Goth boy?
It was time for the twins to age into teens. Ashby got them together for a cute childhood photo, don’t they look cute? Taloria with her fire red hair like her mom’s and Addison with darker red hair with blonde highlights like her dad’s, these two girls are just precious.
Aging didn’t change the views of the girls at all. Taloria still wanted to be a fashion designer when she grew up and Addison wanted to be a well renowned author. I sure hope these two make their dreams come true.
Time passed for the Lemi’s and soon it was time for Holden to age into a young adult. To Ashby’s surprise Bella came to her and asked they could throw a double party for she too wanted to age up. She couldn’t bear not being with him. Ashby agreed and the Bachelor/Lemi families held a big coming to age party.
Holden grew into a handsome young adult. He decided to keep his rebellious hair-do and it looks great on him.
Bella has very long features, and pretty big eyes. I can’t wait to see if these two have kids… I have a feeling if they do they will be pretty cute.
The two got some “couple’s” pictures as the party went well into the night. The next day the two graduated, but Holden decided to stay at home for just a bit long and Ashby was thrilled.
Soon the days turned into weeks and finally Holden popped the question to Bella. He asked her to be his one and only and she could say nothing but yes.
The next step was to send out the invitations to all.
Holden is Ashby’s 2nd child to get married and since Elvira and Lars eloped Ashby insisted on a big wedding. She would not take no for an answer. All the arrangements were made, the bachelor/bachelorette parties were had and finally the day came. The two would join together.
Ashby cried as any good mother should and the two had a great day with their family and friends.
At the reception the newly married couple made an announcement that they were expecting. Ashby was over the moon with this announcement. This would be her 3rd grandchild (her firsts are Dallas and Tucker Turner read about them in Dawn Turners blog here: http://dawnturnersbabychallenge.blogspot.com/p/chapters.html ).
She insisted that Holden and Bella stayed with them until at least the baby was born and the young couple agreed, both of them were very comfortable in the Lemi household.
Being stuck indoors gave Bella and Ashby time to get to know one another better. Ashby was enjoying being on the outside of a pregnancy for once. She talked to the baby and she and Bella exercised almost daily. It was a great boding experience for them while the men were at work and the children were at school.
Soon Bella and Holden came home with a beautiful baby girl named Alyce. The three of them stayed on until Alyce became a toddler and then they moved on to their own home.
Here is little Alyce as a toddler. Isn’t she cute? She got her daddy’s hair and I am sure her dark eyes are from her mom’s side. Ashby just loved this little girl and it was hard to think that after her party she and her parents would be moving on.
At Alyce’s party Ashby made sure the family photos were taken. First was Holden with his parents. Asher what is up with you always cheering when your kids are getting ready to leave the house?
Next is Holden and his new family. I think Alyce looks a lot like her dad.
Finally Ashby, Asher and their granddaughter Alyce.
