Ashby Lemi’s – Babies 57

Time moved along like time does and the kids were thriving in their new town.  For once the dynamics between two of my children and their father was different from any of my other kids.  This was because Raven and Hardy’s dad was in the challenge community.  Logan knew the importance of being active in his child’s life and he stopped over often to spend time with his kids.

Hardy loved his dad just as much as Raven did, but for some reason Raven had become a daddy’s girl.  Anytime Logan walked into the house, no matter what she was doing, she would toddle over to him, reach her little arms out and say, “Daddy, Daddy, pick me up Daddy.”  Logan would scoop her up and tickle her making angelic giggles escape her lips.

It also amazed me that at such a young age she was obsessed about being a werewolf.  Somehow she knew that her dad and brother were different from her and she didn’t seem to like it.  Even though I wasn’t different like them and I tried to tell her that she still didn’t seem to be satisfied with that.

“Mommy, I wanna be woof like Daddy and Harwdy.”  She would say over and over to me when we had or bonding time.

“Baby, you are beautiful and wonderful just like you are.  You are like mommy and that is okay.”  I would tell her.

She would always get upset with me after that and cross her arms over her chest and stick out her bottom lip.  “No..I wanna be woof like Mia.”  Mia is her sister on Logan’s side.  There was no winning with her so I had to distract her with bacon ice cream, a treat she started liking while visiting her dad and watching the little werewolf kids there eat it.

It really worried me that she was so obsessed, but what could I do but hope she grew out of it.

Hardy was becoming a handful.  Logan had sat me down and explained that he was a werewolf and that is appears that Hardy had received that trait.  He filled me in on how to raise a werewolf child and I had been following all those instructions, but Hardy was still a handful.  He was a sweet and caring little boy but he had these tendencies and all at once he would start to flail around and then start shredding things up.  It was getting expensive having to replace and fix things.  I just hoped that as he aged he would calm down.

My three oldest were in school all day and Asher was at work.  Logan and Becks had their own lives to tend to and I didn’t know anyone else in town yet.  I spent a lot of times with my tot’s watching them and thinking about how fast they grew up.

Screenshot-11

In the morning, after we sent the triplets off to school,  we would go to the park and do some yoga.  It was cute to see them try to copy my moves.

Screenshot-13

That time together was peaceful but often I would sit there and worry about who the next daddy in my challenge would be.

Screenshot-85

“Luna I think you are doing that problem wrong.”  Older sister Lavinnia would help Luna with math which was her worst subject in school, but Lavinnia’s best.

The five children in my household made me so very proud.  The triplets were so very close and the twins were so much fun.

~~

The weather was turning colder and the nights longer and just around the corner was Halloween.  Typically it is my favorite holiday of the year, but this year I felt out of sorts and lonely.  The triplets had a party to go to and Logan had asked to have the twins and Asher had to work.  I agreed to Logan, but the thought of being alone didn’t help the emptiness I felt inside.

Halloween was upon me and after Logan picked up the twins I sat down in the kitchen to dive into a carton of ice cream but hung on the refrigerator I saw a note that said: Go up to the bedroom.  The note was written in Asher’s script so I decided to see what he had waiting for me.  I was sure he had picked up on my mood and decided to try and cheer me up with something.

Laying on the bed was the most amazing costume with another note that said: Put me on.  I figured that he thought that if I dressed up it would help me cheer up.  It was a cute thought and I decided to try it.  I put on the costume and headed downstairs to prepare for the trick or treaters and eat that ice cream, but when I went downstairs I was surprised with all of my friends in their own costumes.

Screenshot-83

We had a great time.  Becks, Logan and Addy came as zombies, Christy Quinn was a circus performer, My boy Newbie and his wife came as fairy folk and Violet and A.J. came as the 50’s couple.  Asher and I were a zombie hunter and victim.  I was so impressed and thankful that my husband flew in our friends and family and surprised me with this.  It was something I truly needed.

I was sad that our out-of-town guests had to leave the next day, but it still had been a grand Halloween.

~~

It was time for another Lemi birthday and since all five children were ageing up we decided to have a pool party.

Screenshot-96

“Hardy, my boy you are going to age up today.  Are you excited?”  I cooed as I looked into the sweet face of my little boy.

My only birthday wish for him was to be able to control his werewolf urges a little better as a child.

Screenshot-101

“It won’t be long now my girl.”  I tickled Raven and we both laughed.

My only birthday wish for her was that she realize she didn’t need to be a werewolf to be beautiful and special.

The party was super fun.  The guest and the kids had a great time swimming, playing and visiting.

Screenshot-103

“Mom look what I can do.”  Weaver called out. I turned just in time to see him do some fancy dive.  It almost gave me a heart attack when he came real close to hitting Luna.

Screenshot-104

The party was a success but I had to admit that I was a bit concerned when Logan was spotted in his werewolf form rummaging in my garbage can.  Remind me to talk to him about that.

Screenshot-105

The triplets turned out stunning.  Lavinnia and Luna with their pink skin, like their dad, and Weaver with his grandma Mirid’s skin tone.  They were all so different and I was looking forward to getting to know the teenagers they were to become.

Screenshot-108

Raven and Hardy, what cutie’s they turned out to be.

“Hey you kids.  Quit jumping on the bed.  You’re going to knock the cats off. ”  They were a rambunctious pair.

Screenshot-112

The night of their birthday was a full moon and poor Hardy couldn’t control changing into his beastly self.  I was a bit disappointed that he was unable to control the change, but at least he didn’t tear anything up.  I guess that is a good start.

Screenshot-113

Poor Raven.  She was still pretty obsessed with becoming a werewolf, but when she saw Hardy change for the first time she fainted over in fright.  I’m really worried about her.  I decided that I needed to have a talked with Logan to see if he thought her obsession was natural or not.  If he didn’t agree then I would have to look into getting her help.

~~

Peridot Guppie

My worries of who the next challenge dad would be was washed away when I got a knock on my door and behind it was Peridot Guppie, the next birthstone dad that had been slotted, asking if I was ready for him.  I asked how he had found me and he told me that he reads my blog and saw that I had used Logan Fey as the last dad.  He was still eager to join so here he was.

Screenshot-129

Peridot blessed me with another baby girl.  It was my first single birth since baby 33 Bay Quinn Lemi.

Screenshot-131

Jenixa Guppie Lemi was a shy, sweet girl who loved “her” cat fire.

The currently Lemi Household:  Luna, Lavinnia, Hazel, Fire, Jenixa, Raven, Weaver, Hardy, Ashby and Asher.

Ashby Lemi – babies 44 and 45

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE
BABY 44 and 45

The house was now filled with two adults, a Teenage boy, twin children and twin toddlers.

This being said the sets of twins tended to bond. Orchid and Dutton could be found playing domino’s or at the park together.


And Leven and Hooper could be found in their room playing. Playing is used loosely, Leven loved to scare her younger brother, but even though she did this Hooper loved her and followed her everywhere.

All this bonding left O’Deen feeling a little left out and his neediness returned soon after he turned into a teenager and he decided to tend to that neediness with a girlfriend, but it seemed that most girls didn’t like needy.


He met Leslie Feldman in his history class and he was very attracted to her. He was actually surprised when she agreed to go out with him and soon the two of them were spending a lot of time together, but their relationship was more about making out then talking or really getting to know each other.

Leslie was a fun-loving gal who liked to hang out with her friends as well as her boyfriend, but she didn’t like to mix them and when O’Deen started to complain about spending time with her friends she started to lose interest with him.


And finally one day she went over to his house to break up with him. O’Deen didn’t like this much and a huge fight occurred and ended with Leslie storming out of his house. She had hoped they could remain friends, but that didn’t happen.


A few weeks later He got involved with a gal named Mercedes Quintanilla. She was a cute sim but all she was interested in is athletics’ and staying fit.


O’Deen found himself at the gym all the time. He liked being fit but they didn’t talk about anything other than work outs and healthy food and physical affection was an illusion. Soon O’Deen just stopped calling her and she didn’t seem to mind.


The last gal he tried to have a relationship with was Bertha Doe. She was a smart gal who loved the library. Every time O’Deen tried to kiss his gal she would pull away. He figure she was just shy or something like that, but two weeks after they started dating he went looking for her. He couldn’t find her at her house, or the coffee shop they frequented so he went looking for her at the library and caught her making out with someone else there.


He was devastated. Ashby tried to calm him, to tell him that this is just high school and when he grows up he will meet more mature women and have better luck in the love department. She told him how handsome he was and any girl would be lucky to have him, but he just didn’t believe her.

Ashby worried about O’Deen giving up on women, but hoped it will return when he ventured out into the “real world”. Until then she made sure to spend extra time with him.

~~

You would think that Ashby would be use to raising a household of children, but every child is different and every group of children who live together are different and with this group she had her hands full.


“Mommy…Mommy..come play with us in the sand.” The Eggplant triplets would call.


As soon as she would sit down in the sand with the twins the younger set of twins would toddle behind her. “I wanna pway.” Leven would squeal as Hooper crawled into Ashby’s lap.

“We want to play with you mommy.” Orchid would howl. She wasn’t taking it well that there were younger “babies” in the house.

“We can all play together.” Ashby would say in a calm voice.

“Forget it. Come on Dutton let’s go play in the tree house.”

Ashby would just pull her babies into her arms and let out a heavy sigh.


The Aquamarine twins also loved books and Ashby found herself reading to them a lot. She loved this time with the babies and just knew that this would enrich their lives. Perhaps one will grow up to be a professor, or a scholar or well anything they want to be.

~~

This time around Asher really hadn’t bonded with any of the children the household. Oh don’t get me wrong he loved them all and they loved him, but the four youngest were momma’s kids and O’Deen had decided that his best friends were the dogs so he found himself with some spare time. In that spare time he decided to take up gold.

With Asher out playing golf and the children vying for her attention left Ashby with little time to herself, but when she got a call from her son Quinn Starr-Bright she found an excuse to do just that, take time for herself.

Asher, who has always supported her spending time with her kids, agreed take care of the house hold the upcoming Saturday. Ashby sat down the kids and told them that she was taking a day and that Asher was in charge. None of them were happy about this, but Ashby knew in her heart they would behave.

Quinn had explained to Ashby over the phone that his company, oh I should take the time right to tell you that Quinn is an architect, had built a horse and dog race track in Sunset Valley and he and Newbie wanted to take her to the grand opening. He told Ashby that there would be several familiar faces there and he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Two days after she got off the phone she got a postcard in the mail with an appointment for a dress fitting for the Friday before. Her boys had went in together and ordered her a fancy dress for the event.

She went to her fitting and she felt like a princess in her fancy dress and big floppy hat. She was ecstatic about the day to follow.

Ashby woke up early in the next morning and put breakfast on for her family. When they were done eating she changed into her new dress and waited for her ride. When she heard the limo honking for her she squealed like a little girl, kissed Asher and the kids headed out for her day.


When her car pulled up to her destination she gasped out loud. The place was beautiful and she was so proud that one of her sons was the lead architect on the project. She couldn’t wait to see her boys and find out who else has been invited to the event.

She opened the car door and was greeted by a large, friendly hand and soon found herself hugging a beaming Quinn. She kissed him on his cheek and then moved to hug her son Newbie. She was so happy they were in town.

When Christy Quinn came up behind her and put her hands over Ashby’s eyes Ashby was startled but when she whirled around and saw one of her very best friends she hugged her and then shoved a camera into her friend’s hand.

“Take a picture of me and my boys, will ya Christy?”

“Sure thing Ash.” Christy turned on the camera and got ready to shoot.

“Come on boys. Hey Christy did you know that Quinn did all this?” Ashby was bursting with pride.

“He told me when he called me. I am so proud of my smart Godson.” Christy snapped the picture.

“Mom, Christy I was part of a team. I didn’t do this alone.” The always modest Quinn expressed.

“Come on let your mom be the proud mother she is.” She slide her arm in his. “Will you take a picture with your ole’ Godmother?”

“Of Course. Mom will you come take one?” Quinn asked.

Ashby got this cute picture by the marble fountain. Awe what is this I see. Quinn making the love of his mother and Godmother know. He is such a sweet boy.

After Ashby took this picture she was rushed by the other special guests. The other guests in attendance were Violet Newbie, Dawn Turner, Addy McKnight, Her and Asher’s first son Derrick and she was introduced to Newbie’s girlfriend Breeze Roman. Ashby felt like a kid in a candy store surrounded by so many people she loved.

Being that it was opening day there was only one race scheduled for the day and it was later in the afternoon. However all the other features of the track was open.


The group started out together and enjoyed seeing the morning rituals the race track held. Jockey’s taking care of their horses, dog trainers working with their dogs and vendors preparing for the day at hand.

“Oh I am going to stop at this gift shop.” Ashby broke from the group and wandered away with Addy on her heels. She had spotted a cute little shirt that would be perfect for her Ivy.

“Breeze you come with Quinn, Christy and I. We would like to get to know you better my dear.” Violet grabbed Breeze’s hand and they wandered toward the lounge area.

Dawn and Newbie found themselves alone. Not thinking much of it Newbie reached over and grabbed her hand as they walked. As they walked a horse, named Cobalt, followed along the fence trying to get their attention.

“I want to pet him.” Dawn said turning in front of Newbie and letting go of his hand.

She reached forward over the fence clicking her tongue trying to make the steed come closer. When the horse began to grow closer Newbie, who had never really been around horses before, got nervous and grabbed Dawn trying to pull her away.

“What is wrong with you?” She asked giggling.

“I don’t want it to bite you. It is so big.” He said innocently.

“Newbie, I wouldn’t put myself in danger. The horse just wants his neck rubbed.” She rolled her eyes at him and he let her go.

She climbed up on the bottom rung of the fence trying to get closer to the horse, but her shoe slipped causing her to fall backwards, but Newbie was there to catch her.

Dawn turned her head to smile at Newbie, but she her eyes met his she didn’t turn away like she should nor did she let go of his hands around her waist. Newbie stared deeply into her purple eyes and his face began to inch closer to hers and Dawn tilted her head back slightly, but when her hat began to slip off her head their moment was broken.

Pulling her hat back on her head she laughed. “Thanks Newbie for catching me.”
Newbie laughed along with Dawn, but he wasn’t sure it was a laughing matter. His was left wanting that would be kiss, but also with an abundance of guilt because someone close by was his girlfriend. “I should go find Breeze.” He muttered and walked away.

“There you are beautiful.” Newbie said putting his hands on the bar and leaning toward Breeze.

“Come here handsome.” She put her finger under his chin and guided his face to hers.

Newbie felt like a deer in headlights when Breeze placed her dainty lips on his, but he returned her kiss. There was no need to ruffle their relationship, was there?

When they break the kiss Newbie took her hand, “Come on I have a surprise for you.”

“What is it?” She asked.

“It wouldn’t be a surprise if I told you.” He chuckled.

“This is such a great experience.” Breeze gushed as she rubbed her cheek against the regal steeds mane.

Newbie had asked one of the Jockeys if he and Breeze could get a picture on his horse. Newbie wanted to know how it felt to be on the back of a horse and frankly he enjoyed it and started thinking about perhaps purchasing one in the future, perhaps when he settles down in his forever home. As much as he loved his brother, Quinn, he didn’t plan on living with him forever.

“Derrick, my boy, will you come and take a picture with me and your brothers?”
“Sure mom.” Derrick wiped his mouth and threw his napkin down on the remaining of his hotdog and stood up.

“Say Cheese.” Violet said as she snapped this great family photo.

The afternoon air was hot and the betting for the race was opening soon so the group took some time to relax.

“So Newbie who are you betting on?” Violet leaned over to hear Newbie’s answer.
Newbie thought the question over. The near kiss with Dawn enters his mind and he blurts out his answer. “Cobalt!”

“Well good luck.” Noticing the betting booth opening Violet stands up, straight’s her dress and heads to make her bet.

After the bets were made the group made their way over to the track to experience their first horse race.

As they made their way over to the track Newbie hung back and grabbed his mom’s shoulder. “Can we talk?”

She assured the group they would catch up and she took Newbie’s arm. “What’s the matter dear?” Ashby asked in her best mom voice.

“Mom, I am struggling with some feelings.” Newbie admitted.

“What kind of feelings?”

Reaching his arm up to scratch the back of his neck he lets out his conflict. “Feelings that I shouldn’t have about Dawn. She is my best friend and I care about Breeze and dating her, but lately I have been getting jealous in regards to Dawn and even thought about kissing her.”

Ashby let out a soft chuckle and leaned her head against his shoulder. “Son, I can’t tell you what to do with those feelings, but what I can say is life happens the way it should and whatever is to come don’t fight it. This situation could result in hurt feelings, but no matter what happens just listen to your heart. Make sure you are happy and if hurt feelings should come about make sure you do it as gently as you can.”

Newbie looked at this mom with a quizzical look. He wanted to ask her what that was supposed to mean and what is he suppose to do about his confusing feelings, but they were interrupted by Addy’s excited voice.

“Come on you two we don’t want to miss the race.”

“Just remember what I said.” Ashby smiled, grabbed his hand and pulled him toward the track.

**I want to thank Elise Costa for making this track**

“And they’re off.” The group heard the announcer over the loud speaker.
The race was so exhilarating and they found themselves cheering, jumping up and down and encouraging the horse they bet on. In the end Cobalt won the race.

Challenge mom’s Dawn Turner, Violet Newbie, Ashby Lemi, Christy Quinn and Addy McKnight had a wonderful time at the track that day. They relished spending time good friends and the short break from their kids. It was a great day!

~~

Ashby got in late and all of the kids, dogs and her husband had been asleep. The next morning when she descended the stairs she was greeted with this site.


“Mama, Mama…” Hooper spotted his mom, nudged the sleeping Sake off his foot and waddled to where she stood. Ashby swept him into her arms.

“How are you my boy?” Ashby asked kissing him on the top of his head.

“I missed you mama.” Hooper whispered into her ear.

“I missed you too sweetie.” Ashby hugged tightly to her son as the realization that he wasn’t going to be a toddler for much longer entered her mind.

~~

Remember this guy? He is one of the Birthstone dads, Diamond White-Birch and he was the next guy Ashby had an appointment with.

I wonder what his kids will look like?

~~

“And the prince and princess lived happily ever after.” Ashby finished the story and kissed the toddlers on the head.

“Again mommy…again.” Leven clapped her hands.

“No sweetie, it is nap time and when you wake up we shall have your birthday.”
“Oktay Mama.” Hooper smiled up at Ashby.

“Sleep well my little angels.” Ashby said as she closed the bedroom door.
She went downstairs to start the birthday bash.

First up the eldest in the household, O’Deen. What a handsome young adult he is. I am sure his luck will change when he moves forward, don’t you?

Orchid got her father’s eyes, but the rest is all Ashby. She is a stunning gal who loves to having fun.

Dutton what is that face? He grew into a very kind-hearted teenager.

These two are crazy. They keep Ashby laughing all the time.

Then it was Leven and Hooper’s turn. They had their picture taken with the puppies and that was the last photo’s taken of Sally and Sake as puppies, because they too aged up.

Sassy Lemi

Sake Lemi

O’Deen said good-bye to his family and moved out after the party.

~~

The day before the new little ones arrived Ashby had an amazing thing happen to her. She was watching a deer run in the field across from her home and decided to try to get closer. The deer actually let her pet him. It was truly beautiful.

~~


And I introduce you to Jones (named after Kira Teagan Jones) and Seely White-Birch Lemi. Gosh these little boys are too cute for words. What do you think?

Ashby Lemi – Baby 32

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 32

Life at the Lemi’s picked up with a teen, two children and three toddlers.  Ashby and Asher found that all of their free moment’s were taken up by potty training, teaching a toddler to walk or talk, helping children with homework and talking their teen though trivial teen drama’s.

 Even though it was work Ashby enjoyed every minute of it.  She couldn’t help but laugh at the silly things her kids said when teaching them to talk.

“Book…say book.”

“Why?”

“No not why, book.”

“Why?”

“You are just the cutest thing in my life.”  She would reply and scoop him into her arms.

She would tickle him until they were both breathless from the laughter.

Rollin, Riker and Rian are they the sweetest little angles ever?  Once they learned how to walk it was hard to keep them out of trouble.

Carter and Capri had been enrolled in ballet since they were able to walk and the two loved spending time after homework out in the backyard practicing their dancing.  They had a big recital coming up and Capri had gotten the lead role.  Carter was a bit jealous, but in all honesty she wasn’t as coordinated as her sister.

Soon it was time for Keskey to age into a Young Adult.  He asked Asher and Ashby if he could have his party at the beach.  After some deliberation about it, it was decided that his party would be held there.  Ashby called and made a reservation and the party planning began.

Everyone had a grand time.  The girls; Carter, Capri and Rian, especially loved it.  When it was time for Keskey to blow out the candles Ashby found it hard pressed to get them off the playground equipment.  She made a mental note that she needed to bring them to the beach more often.

Man you would never guess she was the mother of 31 children (30 of them she gave birth to).

Keskey made a wish that he told no one about and blew out his candles.

You would think that by the time a sim aged into a Young Adult they would be use to the age sparkles, but they always made Keskey nervous.  Once they completely took him over he was satisfied with the outcome.

“Real Men wear pink” was his motto.   He turned into such a handsome young man, and Ashby knew that he was going to have to fight off the girls left and right.

Two weeks later Keskey was graduating and as they exited city hall Aunt Vi snapped this family photo.  They went back to the house for yet another party this time no one was aging up.  This time it was celebration of Keskey graduating.

 

 In true Ashby form she made sure someone was close by with a camera to take some candid shots of her, Asher and their son Keskey.

 Then with a loving hug to his parents and a promise to visit often Keskey was out the door.  He was heading off to college and was leaving before summer break because he wanted to get settled and he had a summer job lined up.

Little Capri was very attached to her big brother and when he left the house she worked herself up to the point of being sick.  Ashby put her to bed early and read her a story.  She reassured her over and over that Keskey would be back and that he had promised that he would make it to her dance recital.  Finally she drifted to sleep, but she wasn’t a 100% convinced that Keskey would keep his promise.

The recital was near the end of the summer and true to his word Keskey was in the front row with his camera taking pictures of his baby sisters.  Capri was the happiest little fairy princess that one could have hoped for.

Rollin was very attached to his mommy and loved her to read to him.  She would bring him up in the little reading room their aunt Vi and Uncle A.J. made and they would read for hours.  He was mesmerized by her voice and especially loved it when she would make little actions with her hands in a small attempt to act out the story for him.

The other two didn’t really like books and reading as much as Rollin, they were more interested in running around getting into the bigger kids stuff.  Which Carter especially hated.

School was getting ready to start soon and Carter wasn’t sure how she felt about that.  She hadn’t made any friends yet and she hated getting stared at for being a challenge kid.  She would sit in her room for hours thinking about how she could make her school days better.  When she remembered that the triplets were going to be school age before the start of school made her feel a little better.  Knowing that there were going to five Lemi’s in the same school really eased her mind.

Then it was birthday time again.  This time they would throw the party at the park, what better place to have a child’s birthday then at the park?

 Rian was up first.  What a beauty she became with her mother’s hair, her grandma’s skin tone and a beautiful combination of her mom’s steel eyes and her grandma’s blue eyes.  Ashby styled her hair with a cute flower headband.

 

Riker was next, and what a surprise.  He turned out to be quite wholesome and was very eager to begin school.  He had a nice combination of genetics from both Ashby and Terrance and was quite handsome on a geeky sort of way.

 

Last by not least was Rollin.  What a cute young man.  He was a skater type and liked baggy jeans, colored t-shirts, cool hats and of course skate board.  He was so stoked that he got one for his birthday.  He certainly had a lot of his father’s looks and Ashby heart filled with pride as she looked upon her three beautiful children.

 They had to move the party back to the house when the rain started, but Ashby didn’t let that stop her from getting some pictures.

Soon it was time to decide on a father for baby 32.

One day, after several days of going through “applicants”, Asher grabbed Ashby in the kitchen and pulled her close.  “Baby after all the hard work we have been doing we need some us time.  I am calling dibs on baby number 32.”  With that he nuzzled his scruffy chin against Ashby neck, something he knew she loved.

She giggled as she leaned closer.  “You can have dibs on whatever baby you want my love.”

In her early stages of pregnancy there was a huge mishap, but lucky there was no damage to the baby.  Riker was a scientist at heart and he would spend many hours at the chemistry set.  He made a concoction and asked Ashby to try it.  This elixir turned her into a ghost for a few hours.  Asher quickly took her to the doctor after it wore off and she was assured there was nothing wrong with the baby.

Ashby was loving that baby 32 was her husband’s.  Removing the extra man factor made things so much easier and allowed them to spend extra time together.  They loved hanging out on the swing set in their backyard.

“So do you have a boys’ name picked out?”  She asked him in a playful way.  Ever since they found out the gender of their young one she would tease him about this.

“You are better at picking names out then me.  Do you have one?”

“I do.  I was thinking a name sake for another challenge mom.”  She told him her idea and he was in agreement.

“I am Rollin the great and you will bow to me!”

“I am Prince Riker and this is Princess Rian.  We will rule you with a kind hand and a loving heart.”

While the kids were downstairs playing Ashby woke up from her nap because the baby was really moving.  Asher tried to calm him down by rubbing her stomach, but all the did was help her go into labor.

Welcome to the world Woody Lemi.  He is named after fellow challenge mom Addy McKnight.  Her maiden name is Woodrow and that is where his name is taken from.

They barely got Woody home when it was time to throw another birthday party.  This time it was a good old fashioned pool party.

 

First to age was Carter.  What a cute, hip, cutie she turned out to be.  She looked so much like Ashby, she could have almost been her carbon copy.

 

Then Capri’s turn, and what a stunning young woman she was.  With Grandpa Lawrence’s hair color she was a looker.
