Ashby Lemi’s – Babies 52, 53 and 54

***WARNING*** There is some adult content in this post. No pictures just story.

SEELY’S POV

Howdy folks. It is me Seely White-Birch Lemi. I write the tale of my youth with a heavy heart, but mom says that writing down things that make you sad or bother you sometimes helps. Let’s hope she is right. I want the pain in my heart to go away. So where to start?

Well I aged into a teenager…whoopee doo!  It was lonely without my twin brother there to celebrate it with me.  Sure my family was great and we had a fun party, but when you are a twin there is just that connection.  It is that knowledge that no matter what there is something there that gets you, someone who understands you, but Jones was gone.  We did skype that night and we were both in awe of how different we looked from one another, but he went on and on about how great his new school was and about a girl name Naddy that he had met.  He was doing well when I was just lonely.

School wasn’t any better for me.  I did get myself acquainted with a couple of kids at school, but none that I would classify as friends, and I did well in school, but I wasn’t invited to parties or out with others my age.  They thought I was odd and they just didn’t understand me.  Since aging into a teenager Jones’ contact became less and less.  He was spending a lot of time with his new best friend, Naddy, and he was quite popular in school.

Being bored and alone all the time I took up reading about the 100 baby challenges.  There are so many out there that I didn’t know where to start so I stated with my sister-in-laws, Dawn Turners, challenge.  It was fun to read about my brother, Newbie, and how he and Dawn fell in love.  Next I read Aunt Violet’s challenge.  I know Asher isn’t my real dad, but he is so much a part of my life that I consider A.J. and Violet my aunt and uncle.  That too was a lot of fun to read because of the ties my family has to the Newbie/Lemi household.  Next up was Christy Quinn’s challenge and I have to say I am eager to continue reading her journey.  Finally I read my mom’s challenge.

I found it strange reading about my mom and my siblings and even though I knew about Connery my heart broke for her when she lost him and then soon after five of my sisters, but what I found even more captivating was the comments people left.   The people were kind and really seemed to care about my mom and it was fun to read their comments.

Then one day one of the comments was directed at me and I was shocked.  It said:

Hi Ms. Ashby, my name is Devin Tuttle and I really love your blog.  I admire you so much for doing the 100 baby challenge and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you and your family.  I have to also say that I have a huge crush on Seely.  Could you possibly tell him hi for me?  It would mean the world.  Thank you.  Devin. 

I posted a comment back to her thanking her and soon we ended up exchanging emails and becoming online friends.  Even though she was younger than me she got me.  She understood my quirks and she was just as quirky as I was.  She made me laugh and honestly her friendship got me through the rest of the time I was in high school.

Not long after we became friends we discovered that we would be aging up at the same time and plans were made for her to make a trip to the island so we could celebrate together.  Her mom had agreed because she felt guilt that since her and her dad got divorced Devin didn’t socialize much and she thought that my friendship was a good one for her daughter.

The day arrived and a car brought her to my house.

Isn’t she just cute as a button?

We had a whole weekend together and we had the time of our lives.

It was great spending time with her.  We went to the park, to the boardwalk and swimming.  I never got annoyed or tired of spending time with her.  I didn’t want her visit to end.

The day she had to leave was the day we aged up (I know I don’t look much different).  That morning we had a small party with my family where I aged into a Young Adult.  After the celebration Asher helped me pack my car, and I said good-bye to my family.

Since Devin had a couple of hours before she would age into a teenager the plan was for us to go to dinner (where she would age up) and then I would drive her to the airport and after that Sassy and Sake and I would head to our new apartment.  I couldn’t leave without the dogs and Asher and mom were gracious enough to allow me to take them.

Devin and I dressed in our best clothes, her idea she wanted to feel like an adult, and headed to the bistro where we ate outside so we could let the dogs lay close by so they didn’t have to wait in the car.

We had a good meal and great conversation.  When we were done we walked inside to pay our bill and for Devin to age up.

“Seely, before I age up can I do something?”  Devin asked in her sweet voice.

“Sure what?”  I smiled down at her.

She motioned with her finger for me to come closer and I complied.

She surprised me with a gentle kiss on my cheek.  Her lips were soft and it tickled and I couldn’t help but smile widely.  After the kiss she aged up into a stunning teenager and I couldn’t keep my eyes off of her.  I wished that she and I could have been the same age, but wishing doesn’t get you anywhere.

“Pull the car over there.”  Devin instructed.

“That spot is so far away.  Are you sure?”  I was confused by her requested.

“I don’t want anyone to see our good-bye.” She looked to the floor of the car.

Pulled into the spot where she told me and pulled the keys out of the ignition.  I turned to face her to ask her about this good-bye when she lunged at me her lips engulfing mine.  Sliding onto my lap she undid my pants and slid her tongue into my mouth.

I was her slave; every touch and ever kiss left me in a state of bliss and as the dogs slept in the back we shared ourselves with one another.  After we were done she leaned her forehead against mine and whispered, “I don’t want you to forget me, Seely.”

“I could never forget you.”  I gently ran my hand over her cheek and our lips came together once again, and it was true.  I could never forget her touch or the taste of her lips of the softness of her skin.

I walked her to the terminal after that and gave her a kiss good-bye.  “Call me when you land?”  I couldn’t look her into her eyes.  If I did I would have broken down and begged her to stay but I knew I couldn’t do that.  She had school and a family waiting for her.

“I will.”  Her voice was as sad as I felt.

After we parted I walked back to the car and as I climbed behind the wheel guilt washed over me.  What we shared had been so special and so pure and the only motivation that was leading it was feelings; pure and true feelings, but now as I sat there alone I knew it had been wrong.  We were in two different stages in our lives and we weren’t meant to share that together.  As I drove to my new apartment I vowed to myself that it was a onetime thing and I would take this to my grave, but things change.

I didn’t hear from Devin the next day or the day after.  On the third day after she left I got a devastating call from Devin’s mother.  She was frantic and crying.  She had gone to pick up Devin at the airport and she never showed up.  She called and texted her cell phone and she was about to call me when she got a call from her ex-husband stating that since she had denied him Devin for a few months after she turned into a teenager he took her.  He told her that she would never see Devin again nor would any of the authorities ever find them.  She apologized for taking so long to call me with this news, but she really hadn’t been able to talk.  She had the police out looking but so far they hadn’t found a trace of where they could be.

I just hope she is somewhere out there reading this blog again.  I just want her to know that even though some would find it wrong, I love her and I intend to find her.

~~~

ASHBY’S POV

It is painful to hear that your child is in pain.  Seely called me after he got the phone call from Devin’s mother and Asher and I offered any resources he needed to help find her, but time has gone by and so far no one has come close to finding the poor girl.  I can only hope that her father is a good man and is treating her kindly.

~~

It was time for some more birthday’s at the Lemi’s. On Friday night we celebrated the youngest triplets birthday.

Mason, Monroe and Marko…let me say how handsome you are my young men.  Mason got my new hair color and my mom’s eyes and his dad’s lighter skin tone.  Monroe got that odd hair color that his brother Quinn and sister Tyme got, my steel grey eyes and more of his father’s skin coloring.  Last but not least Marko got his grandpa Lawrence’s hair,  my eye color and his dad’s skin tone.

These boys were such a joy to have around and I was so looking forward to seeing them grow and become great young men.

The following day we had planned a party for Fern, Tyme and Barklay.

“Fire, I’m going to be a teenager today.”  I heard Fern mutter to fire as she hugged him tightly.  “Can I tell you a secret?  I’m kind of scared.  What if the other kids at my new school don’t like me?”

I walked into the room and pulled my girl into a hug.  “Honey, they are going to love you.  You are smart, funny and people will love you.”  Then we heard some music coming from the performance room.  “Come on let’s go check out what is going on.”  She smiled up at me and took my hand.

I guess you’d say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin’ ’bout my girl (my girl).

We walked into the performance room to find Tyme and Asher singing the Temptations My Girl.  I think we startled Asher a bit when we entered the room, but he soon got back on track.  When they finished the song Fern and I clapped loudly as Tyme bowed up and down.

“Come on papa Asher bow.”  She ordered pulling on his shirt.

He joined in the fun by taking her hand and bowing with her and we clapped louder.

The laugher finally subsided and I draped my arm over Fern’s shoulders.  “Come on girls let’s go find your brother and blow out some candles.”

Look at these stunning children!!  Another child with her grandpa’s hair color and grandma’s blue eyes and resembles me, Fern is breathtaking.  Barklay with his cool hair and confident manner no doubt will be a popular on in school.  Then there’s my shy girl Tyme.  She is so pretty with her simple features and stunning blue eyes.

Weeks after they aged up Barklay approached me with a request.

“Mom.”  His tone was confident.  “Fern, Tyme and I have been doing some research and we have read about this new town in the sims world.  It is called Moonlight Falls and we would like you to send us there for a week before it becomes out time to age up and move out.”

I wasn’t very keen on sending my teenage children to a town that I had never been to nor had I heard much about, but how would I tell them no?  Being a challenge child their baby, toddler, child and teenage years are cut so short compared to other sims.  I told them I would think about it and went to find Asher to talk to him about this.

Since all the children at home were old enough to be home alone we took a rare opportunity to go for a moonlight walk.  With his right arm tightly around my shoulders and his left hand in his pocket we walked and I told him what the teens asked.

“How do I let them down easy?”  I asked finishing my little tale.

He pulled me closer and inhaled loudly.  “I’m not sure you should. I think they should be allowed to go.”

“But….they will be all alone.  I wouldn’t be able to go with them I have the boys to think about as well.”

“Didn’t you tell me last week that Ash just recently moved to Moonlight Falls?”  He lifted his head an looked at the moon.  The serene look on his face showed there was nothing to worry about.

With his words I remembered the postcard I got from my son Ash, baby number 9 and one of my only two vampire babies, the week before letting me know that he had moved to Moonlight Falls to be around more Supernatural beings.  “How could I have forgotten?”  I yelled startling Asher out of his daze.  I whipped my phone out of my pocket and soon I was chatting away with Ash.  He agreed to let Fern, Tyme and Barklay to stay with him for a week.

When I told the triplets this they were over the moon with excitement and the following week they were on a plane headed to Moonlight Falls.

~~~

BARKLAY’S POV

Ash picked us up at the airport and right from the start we all got along great.  It was cool to have a big brother that was a vampire and we wanted to know all about him and his life.  We talked into the wee hours of them morning ending our talk with Ash expressing his regret that he was unable to show us around town.  He hadn’t lived in Moonlight Falls very long so he was unable to get time off work so soon after starting.  We were okay with that eager to explore the town on our own.

We got a couple of hours of sleep and then did some research on Ash’s computer to see what there was to do and see in Moonlight Falls.  Fern and I were intrigued by all the crazy stuff like getting our fortune told and fishing at the mystical falls, but Tyme wanted to do boring stuff like research on why the town came to be and what kind of begins have been introduced into the sims world so we decided to split up.

“I wonder what they will tell me?”  Fern asked me as we approached the fortune-teller’s wagon.

“I don’t know but….Hey Fern look over there.”  I pointed to a girl with blue wings who had sparkles coming out of her fingers.  “What is that?”

Fern nudged me in the side and gave me a disapproving look,  “It’s a girl you dork.”

“I can see that, but she has wings.”  I let out a frustrated sigh and put my hand to my mouth.  “Hello…Hi…you.”  I called trying to get her attention.

She turned to us and with a smile she headed to us and when I saw her face I gasped.  She was beautiful.  She introduced herself to us as Delphinium Vine from the Moonlight Falls fairies.   I couldn’t believe that I was talking to a real fairy.  I always thought they were myths, stories parents told their children at bedtime, but here she was a real living breathing fairy and I couldn’t stop talking to her.

Fern went into the wagon and got her fortune read, but I couldn’t bring myself to tear away from Delphinium and we talked the whole time Fern was spending a lot of money on useless information.  She later told me she kept thinking that if she kept giving out the money they asked for they would finally tell her something helpful, but it never happened.

When Fern was done Delphinium and I had made plans to meet up (Fern and Tyme were invited too) and she would give us a tour of the town.  We exchanged numbers and Fern and I headed back to Ash’s.  We entered the empty house and found a note from Tyme that she had headed to the graveyard to do some exploring.  Fern and I were puzzled as to why she would head to the graveyard at night, but we trusted that she knew what she was doing and would call if she needed help.

~~~

TYME’S POV

After doing a lot of research in the library I learned that many supernatural creatures conjugate to the cemetery at night so I had decided that I wanted to witness this phenomenon myself, after all that is why we were there, right?

The cemetery was beautiful and I was enjoying the atmosphere around me, but I had yet to meet a supernatural being.  I decided to wait on one of the benches for a while when a heard a strange noise coming from deeper in the cemetery.

I approached the noise and was startled to see a sim glowing orange and yelling in pain.  I had no idea what was going on and I was frozen in fear.  When the orange glow subsided he lifted his head high in the air and let out the most terrifying howl one could image and I couldn’t help but gasp loudly.

He quickly turned around and was startled by my presence.  He yelled in surprise and pulled his arms tightly around him.  I didn’t know what to do or what to think so I tried to run for it, but he caught up with me and grabbed my arm.

“I…I’m…sorry I scared you.”  He stammered and let go of me.

I was baffled by his behavior and something told me that he wasn’t dangerous.

I gave him a slight smile and reached forward taking his hand.  It was an odd hand.  A hand like a sim, but it was also very hairy.  “It’s okay.  I overreacted.  My name is Tyme Emerald-Lemi.”  I shook his hand like my mother had taught me.

He introduced himself as Weston Hale and explained that he was a werewolf, and despite all the hair, his sharp claws and teeth and glowing yellow eyes; he had a great smile.  It was a smile that made me feel at easy.  We settled into an easy and comfortable conversation and before either of us knew it two hours had passed.

“Hey Tyme.  I know you don’t know me that well, but can I show you my favorite place in Moonlight Falls?”

“You’re not going to eat me for dinner are you?”  I let the joke tumble out of my mouth.

“Ha..ha very funny.”  He beamed back.

“Sure.” I took his hand and he lead the way.

“Weston it is beautiful here.”

“It is my favorite place in Moonlight Falls.”  He reiterated what he told me earlier.

We stood in silence for what seemed like forever and then turned to each other and smiled.

We spent the rest of the time talking, laughing and enjoying each other’s company.  I didn’t want the night to end.

When the sun started to rise Weston mumbled something about changing back into his human form and strayed away from me.  He walked to the edge of the pond and picked a handful of flowers and brother them to me.

“Tyme you are the nicest prettiest girl I have ever met.  I am so glad that fate has brought us together.”  He handed me the flowers with a smile.

“I love them.”  I screeched pulling them up to my nose.  “Thank you.”

Weston pulled me into a tight hug as the sun lightened up the sky.  “Tyme if you let me I want to protect you forever.”  He whispered in my ear.  As he let me go I kissed his furry cheek and tears glistened in my eyes.

Then Weston turned back into a boy.  We exchanged numbers and he promised to call so we could spend more time together after we got a couple of hours of sleep.

~~

BARKLAY’S POV

Over the next week Fern, Delphinium and I had become inseparable.  Everyone moment we were awake we were all together.  Delphinium was such a great gal….such a great fairy and she was super fun to spend time with.

Our last day in Moonlight Falls we decided to spend the day at the falls.

Fern insisted getting out picture taken next to this big rock sculpture.  “Say Cheese.”  Delphinium giggled as she flittered above us.

We spent the day fishing.  Delphinium actually liked to skip rocks or practice her fairy magic more than fish, but it was just great having her with is.  Look at this Fern caught a frog and a quite a big frog it is.

Delphinium decided to have some fun and cast a temporary spell on me.  The spell allowed me to flit like a fairy so I challenged her to a race to the falls.  It was great fun and I never knew how freeing flitting could be.  Of course I won, I think she let me win, and we fell into each other’s arms in laughter.

Then we stood very close to one another and watched the water from the falls tumble over the rocks.

Then without warning Delphinium leaned over and kissed me sweetly on the cheek.

“What was that for?”  I asked rubbing my cheek where her lips had been moments before.

She grinned at me slyly.  “Oh so you don’t forget me Barklay.”  Her voice was playful and coy.  It was like she was playing another one of her fairy tricks on me, but nothing happened.

I gave her a slanted look trying to figure out what her secret was, but I was unable to figure it out.  “I won’t forget you Del.”  Using the nickname I had given her.

“I know you want.  I’ve just ensured that.”  She let out a sing-song laugh and flitted away from me to say her good-byes to Fern.

~~

TYME’S POV

The last night we were in Moonlight Falls Weston called me and told me he had a special night planned for us.

He picked me up from Ash’s house and the first place he took me was the museum where we both and an appreciation for the artists.  Then we went to the public pool where were enjoyed a swim, but while we were there a full moon rose.  Weston changed before my eyes and a creature I have never seen before came around the corner.

Weston told me to change quickly and that we needed to leave immediately and head to someplace safe.  He had forgotten it was a full moon.

We left the pool and Weston rushed me along mumbling about Zombies, and how stupid he felt for forgetting that it was a full moon.  We got on the bus and as it drove off he explained that Zombies loved to eat human flesh and nothing but pea-shooters stop them.  My skin shivered with goose bumps at the thought and he draped his arm around my shoulder.  “You don’t have to worry, Tyme.  I will always keep you safe.”

We pulled up to a place call the Werewolf’s Lair and rushed inside.  There weren’t a lot of people there and Weston explained that this was a place where werewolves and their friends hung out, but most supernatural creatures liked to be out during a full moon.

During our time at the hangout we played foosball, had a great dinner and had the mystical ball tell us a great love is awaiting us.  I couldn’t help to smile at Weston when we were told that.

When it was safe to go back outside we went out to get some air hand in hand.  The full moon gave us both a strong sensation and Weston whirled around and we shared out first kiss.   When we broke our connection Weston puffed up his chest and howled at the moon.  This set me off in a fit of giggles.

However, those giggles soon turned into tears with the realization that this was Weston and I’s last night together.  Weston was sweet wiping my tears away and telling me that things would work out.  The bus ride back to Ash’s house was quite.   We held each other tightly but neither of us spoke.

The next day Weston was allowed to go with us to the airport.  We said a sad good-bye filled with kisses and hugs and promises that thing would work out, but as I sat staring out the window of the airplane I didn’t have much faith that things would work out.  I mean how many teenage long distance love’s last?

~~~

ASHBY’S POV

While the teenagers were gone the boys were adjusting just fine as children.   Mason fancied the new rocking horses I bought Monroe loved the cats and Marko, my little loner, loved the rocking chair up in the toy room.

Asher thought it would be great to have fresh honey at his restaurant so he bought some bees.  I know what was he thinking?  However, I want to make my husband as happy as he makes me so I didn’t say anything and I tended to those pesky things everyday and soon I became quite good at gathering the honey.

I was so happy when my children returned from their trip, but it didn’t take me long to realize that they had changed.  Well two of the three of them had changed a lot, but Fern was pretty much the same.  Barklay walked around in a daze all the time texting and calling his friend Delphinium.  When asked if they were more than friends he would sigh deeply, smile and say, “Nope we are just friends.”  His behavior was quite odd.

Then there was Tyme.  Another one of my beautiful girls who was going through a heartache.  She and Weston talked and text all the time but she couldn’t contain how unhappy she was to be apart from him.  I wanted to make it better, but what could I do?

Time went along like this and soon it was time for the Teenagers to age up so that I could move forward with my challenge.

~~~

TYME’S POV

It was the night before Fern, Barklay and I were to age up when we heard a knock on the door.  Mom wasn’t expecting anyone and we really did live so far away from town that it was unusual for anyone to just show up without warning so we were all baffled by the knock.

I was in the reading room and heard mom head to answer it.  When I heard mom yell, “Tyme, the door is for you.” I was even more puzzled.

I put my book back on the shelf where I had pulled it from, smoothed out my dress, and headed to the door and I was stopped in my tracks by the sight of who was waiting for me.

I ran the rest of the way across the room and flung myself into his arms.  It was Weston.  he was here and he was already a young adult.  We held each other for the longest time neither one of us wanting to let go.

“What are you doing here?”  I couldn’t help by admire his handsome face.

“Um….your mom sent me a ticket telling me you were ageing up and that I should be here.”  He scratched his head hoping I liked the surprise.

“Oh mom.”  I pitched myself at her hugging her tight.  “This is the best present you could have given me.”

She kissed my forehead.  “Why don’t you and Weston head outback for some privacy.  I will make up the guest room.”

It was another sleepless night and I didn’t care.  Weston and I spent most of it just sitting together staring at the moonlight, drinking in the fact that we were together again and in just a few hours we would both be young adults ready to face the world.

~~~

ASHBY’S POV

The next day the house was bustling with the activities of getting a party ready for the triplets to age up.  The party was as success and soon another set of my “babies” were young adults ready to take on life.

Look at them!  Fern so stunning with her red/white Starr hair and deep blue eyes.  Tyme with her cute button nose and stylish style and Barklay the baby with his cool hair and manly features.  These three are going to accomplish anything they set their minds to.  I am sad to let them go, but super eager to see what they do in life.

~~~

TYME’S POV

The plan was for us to move out of mom’s house the day after we aged up, but unbeknownst to me plans had been changed.

The morning of “move” day Weston asked if we could go for a walk and check out the beautiful view of the ocean before we left.  I agreed and we walked along the beach, near my parent’s house, arm in arm.  The walk was cut short when Weston turned to me and grabbed my shoulders.

“Tyme Emerald Lemi do you love me?”  He asked me out of the blue.

“Yes.”  I picked off a piece of lint from the shoulder of his shirt and gave him a puzzled look.  “What’s this about?”

With a quick motion Weston pulled out a box from his pocket and dropped to one knee.  He wasn’t fancy and he didn’t give a speech.  “Marry me.”  And that was all I needed.

I allowed him to slid the ring on my finger and pull me into a hug.  “Yes…Yes… A million times yes.”  Tears were streaming down my face and I couldn’t imagine that I could be any happier then I was right then.

~~~

ASHBY’S POV

The kids decided they wanted to get married in a week.  In a week!!  That doesn’t give me much time, but luckily being a challenge mom prepares you for things like this and I was skilled party planner.  I got on the phone and started to make deals and arrangements and within a couple of days I had everything lined up to throw them a small, but beautiful wedding. The only thing Tyme had to do was find her dress.

Two days before the big day Tyme came crying to me.  “Mom I can’t find anything that is right.  What am I going to do?”

I began listing off places where she could look and she continued to sob telling me she had already looked there.  I couldn’t bear to see my child so upset when it should be the happiest time of her life so I took her hand and stood her up.  I wiped the tears from her pretty eyes.  “Come with me.  I may have an idea.”

I led her up to the attic and moved stuff around until I found what I was looking for.  The big cedar chest had a layer of dust on it, but I knew what was inside had been preserved and protected.  I knelt before it and released the latch.  The lid opened with a creak and the glorious smell of cedar filled the room.  Standing up I pulled out a plastic covered dress.  Sliding the plastic off of it I handed it to Tyme.

She took in a deep breath.  “Mom this is beautiful.  Is this what you wore when you marred Papa Asher?”  She ran her hand over the lace on the sleeves.

“No honey.  Asher and I eloped.  This is the dress I wore when I married Connery Bright.”  Tears stung my eyes and threatened to fall.  My kids knew about Connery, but none of them really knew the love the two of us shared.

She saw the look on my face and her face fell.  “Are you sure you want me to wear this?”

“Honey, do you want to wear the dress?”  I asked back.

She shook her head slowly as if she was ashamed to admit that she wanted to wear the dress.  I lifted her chin up for her to look me in the eyes.  “Then you wear it.  You will look stunning in it.”

Two days later my little girl was Mrs. Weston Hale.  The wedding was beautiful and even Ao was there to celebrate the marriage of one of is his daughters.

That was the last day my Emerald triplets lived under my roof.  When the celebrations were over Fern and Barklay climbed into their loaded car and headed off for their new places of resident and Tyme and Weston were off on the honeymoon Asher, Ao and I all chipped in to send them on.

It was time to move on with my challenge.

~~

This pregnancy was fun because I shared the time with a pregnant Hazel.   Yep Fire and Hazel were expecting kittens.  How fun is that?

Let’s Smutzle.  I did a lot of working out and dancing during this pregnancy.  The boys were busy with school.  Something big was happening at Asher’s restaurant and I had no little ones to take care of.  So it was something to pass the time.

Yeah Hazel had her kittens.  A little girl Tigeress and a little boy Sneaky.

I should let you know who the next day was.  It was Birthstone dad Auburn Ruby.

Everyone meet triplets Lavinnia, Luna and Weaver Ruby-Lemi.

I am so glad that both Lavinnia and Luna got their father’s skin tone.  The last Red child I had was Greyson, baby # 3.  It also makes me so very happy that Mason got my mom’s skin tone.  He looks so much like her in the face, but got my new hair color and his dad’s red eyes.

I’m going to leave you with this.  This is the current Lemi house-hold.

The hugging siblings are Mason (Child) and Weaver (Toddler). The piggyback pair is Marko (Child) and Lavinnia (Toddler) ~ Of course you know Ashby and Asher ~ The pony ride pair or Monroe (child) and Luna (Toddler). The cat on the rocking chair is Hazel, the black cat is Fire and the kittens (left to right) is Tigeress and Sneaky.

Thank you all for reading. It means a lot that you all keep coming back and the encouragement you provide.

I would love to hear you what think…how you like the new writing style….perhaps what you want to see in the Lemi challenge. You can leave me a comment here or find me on Facebook under Ashby Lemi.

Don’t forget that if you want any of the Lemi children they are available for download as young adults and you can find their links on the table of content page. If you want to find me on the sims3 website you can find me under Xur28.

Ashby Lemi’s – Babies 49, 50 and 51

Hi everyone..yep it is me again Ashby. I am sure you are getting tired of my blog going from first person to third, but Nina; my good friend and the person who has been writing my blog for some time now, had to go back to her country. She had some family issues she has to take care of. Victor offered to get me another author, but I decided that the rest of the challenge will be written by a Lemi. That being said you will see things written by me and I have given access to all of my kids and they have promised that if there is something to report about them they will log in post it.

So last time the blog left you with news that Orchid and Dutton moving out, Leven and Hooper becoming Teens and Fern, Tyme and Barklay were born, and since then a lot has happened and Leven is going to start off this post.

~~~~
LEVEN’S POV

Hi everyone, it’s me Leven. I’m not a great writer, but I am going to give it a whirl.

Not long after Hooper and I started high school I began to have a shadow. A new family, The Falk’s, had moved into town and their boy, Brighton, began following me around. At first I found it kind of creepy to see him outside of my classes and at my locker at any given time during the day, but then he started to become sort of sweet when he would offer to carry my books and open doors for me. I never let him carry my books but it was sweet.

About three weeks after school started he and his sister, Yusun, announced they were having a party. They randomly handed out invites, but he asked me personally. He told me that he wanted to get to know me better and that is why they were having this party. I told him I would think about going and it seemed to make him happy.

I found myself intrigued because I heard that the Falk’s lived on a house boat. It was rumored that Mr. Falk traveled around the world for his job and living on a boat allowed them to be mobile. I wasn’t prepared to go on my own so I con’d Hooper into going with me.

We showed up at 2 and we were taken back.  Brighton was standing on the deck waiting for us.  I couldn’t believe that they really lived on a houseboat.  

He quickly ran down to great us. He shook Hooper’s hand and threw his arm around my shoulders. I was surprised with myself when I didn’t push it away. It felt kind of nice. He slowly guided me to the boat as he talked about the fun day we were going to have. I found myself smiling up at this handsome face. It was a very strange sensation.

He gave Hooper and I a tour of the boathouse as some of our classmates began to show up. Yusun was a gracious host and greeted them. After everyone arrived we had lunch, and what a spread they had. It was buffet style and we had so much to choose from.

After lunch some jumped into the ocean to cool off while other of us lay out on the deck of the boat and took in the sun.

We had a great time dancing.

Then without warning Brighton swept me into his arms and held me close.  He didn’t care who was watching or what people thought.  He held me tightly in his arms for two songs, and when the second song was over he asked me to go on a walk with him and I agreed.

We found a beautiful spot with grass, not sand, and we both sat down. He pulled me against him and I found myself quite comfortable listening to his heart beat against his chest. He rubbed my back and I smiled widely.

“Leven, I really like you. Will you be my girlfriend?” Brighton sprung the question on me and I sat up and looked at him with a puzzled expression. I didn’t know what to say and I just stared at him.

He chuckled lifting his hand to my check. He rubbed his thumb over my cheek and I shivered with excitement. I couldn’t deny that Brighton made me blush. “I…I…can I let you know at school on Monday?” I stammered like a true awkward teenager.

Another laugh escaped his lips. “Sure.” was his sweet reply as he pulled me back down to him.

That evening as the sun sank into the ground Brighton walked me out and I received my very first kiss. The butterflies consumed me as his lips brushed up against mine and cold when his hands ran up my arms. My knees were weak as he pulled me closer to him and then it was over. It was over way to soon. I found myself wanting to answer his earlier question right then and there, but I felt I had to live up to my promise of Monday.

As I walked toward that car that would take Hooper and I hope I heard my brother snicker in his seat. “Shut up.” I hissed but I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face.

I didn’t hear from Brighton on Sunday, but I didn’t mind. I wasn’t the typical high school girl who got upset over things like that, but I was eager for Monday to come so that I could find him, throw myself into his arms and tell him I would be his girl. However, my Monday plans were ruin when I got to school and neither Brighton or Yusun could be found. I was told that their father lifted anchor and took his family to the next business destination.

I didn’t quite believe this horrid rumor I heard and after school I dragged Hooper to the location of the boat house. As we looked at the empty water where the boat was just two days before Hooper pulled me into a protective hug as I sobbed onto his shoulder.

ASHBY’S POV

It hurt my heart to watch my daughter mope around the house. I told her that things would be better and that everyone goes through a broken heart at some point in their life, but all I got was a blank stare as I talked. I knew that going though heart-break while being young it feels like the end of the world and I knew she would eventual get over it, but that didn’t stop me from trying to make my baby-girl feel better.

Then I got heartbreaking news myself. News that almost made me give up my challenge for the second time during the time I have been doing this challenge.

My son Jones had been in and out of the hospital since he was born. The doctors never really knew what kept him sick, but every few months he was either home sick or sick enough to be in the hospital.

When he and his twin Seely aged into children I offered, as I do to all my children, to send them to a specialty boarding school if they would like. Seely, as all my other children had before him, opted to stay home and be with me and our family, but Jones, to my surprise, took me up on my offer. He told me he had already done some research and wanted to be sent to a specialty school in Hidden Springs. I was shocked and my first instinct was to tell him he couldn’t go; that he couldn’t leave me, but Asher saved me, as he always does, from that embarrassment.

A few days later I made the arrangements.

The night before he left I stood at the bottom of the stairs and watched some of my children bond over one of their favorite movies, but I could see the sadness in the room.  Seely was distracted as he looked down to the carpet and Leven had been just as worried and upset as I had been all week-long.

I was like a visible shadow in the house that night. I followed Jones everywhere. After the movie was over Hooper, who had been working out during the movie, read Jones their favorite story and with a tear in his eye kissed him on his head before leaving the room. As Hooper moved passed me I put a reassuring hand on his shoulder. He smiled up at me and left the room.

I took his place next to Jones and pulled the blanket up to his chin.

“Mom I will be okay.” He whispered in a tired voice.

“I know you will.” I flicked the tears away from my eyes.

I knew he wanted to say more, but he was just too tired and his eyes drooped heavily. I stroked his hair as he drifted off to sleep for the last time in his childhood home.

Jones flight wasn’t until the next evening so we all had some more quality time with him. We played games and watched old home movies and ate all of Jones’ favorite junk foods and as afternoon faded to evening we heard the cab horn honk in our driveway and the whole family froze in terror. All but Jones that was. He ran to the door and grabbed his suitcase. “Come on guys..I have to go.” He called.

We all said our good-byes before he headed out the door.

Then just he and I walked out onto the porch.

I scooped him into my arms.

He grabbed my face and said, “Mom I am too big to be picked up.” His voice was hallow and somber just like I felt.

“I know. It’s just that I’m going to miss you my beloved boy. We all are.”

“I’m going to miss you too.” He wiped the tear that slipped down my face. “But there is email, Skype and the phone. I will only be gone in distance.”

“When did you get so smart?” I asked.

“I am what I am because of you mom.” He snaked his arms around my neck and squeezed tightly. “I Love you mom.”

“I love you to Jones. Call me when you get there.”

I set him down and watched him run to the taxi.

~~

I missed my child but he lived up to his word. As soon as he got to school I got a phone call from him and then every day after I either got a call, email or we arranged to skype so I could see how well he was doing, and doing well he was. After two weeks went by we all started to get back to normal and it was time for another Lemi birthday.

Fern, Tyme and Barklay were now children and oh my Barklay got the evil trait.  This should be interesting.

But wait it looks like the girls may be able to hold their own. Don’t they look like they are plotting against Barklay?

~~

The kids, especially Barklay, hated school and when summer rolled around they we so very excited to have three months off and to meet their big brother and his fiancée Newbie and Dawn. Since she could read Tyme had been reading Dawn’s blog and she thought it was so cool that her brother was in it. I asked her once if she thought it was cool that she was talked about in my blog and this is what she said. “Mom,” In a very sarcastic child like tone I should add, “Your blog doesn’t get as much traffic or has as many fans as Ms. Dawn’s does.” She rolled her eyes at me and sauntered off. Gosh I love my kids.

Then the big day arrived and when I heard the cab pull up into the driveway I ran to the door and was greeted by my angel baby and one of my best friends in the world.

“Newbie, my boy!” I flung myself into his arms and he squeezed me tightly.

“Hi mom.” He couldn’t hide his laugh as we released each other. I know we just skyped the night before to make sure everything was in order, but it isn’t the same as seeing your loved one in person and holding them and hugging them.

Next I grabbed Dawn and pulled her into a giant hug as well. “I have missed you both”

“We have missed you too.” Dawn answered for the both of them and my smile grew wider as I realized how much in love these two were.

Just then cab driver came up behind Newbie and Dawn and handed Newbie a cat carrier. “What is that?” I asked puzzled.

“Mom, Dawn and I have a gift for you.” Newbie grinned at me and handed me the cat carrier.

“Oh?” I put it down and opened the door and two beautiful cats cautiously made their way out.

“We know how much you admire the rainbow cats and there are none here on the island so we brought you a breeding pair.” Dawn was so proud of herself. “So meet Hazel and Fire.”

Hazel

Fire

I loved them instantly and I scooped Fire into my arms and Dawn picked up Hazel.

“Come in, come in.” I ushered them inside and gave them the grand tour of the house.

“Wow mom, this house is beautiful.” Newbie, who had his arm draped over Dawn’s shoulders, said as we ended the tour.

“And this island, well what we saw of it on the drive up here, is beautiful as well.” Dawn added.

“Well I can’t wait to show you around, but first let’s get you settled into your room.”

Their visit was such a wonderful one. Newbie and his new siblings got a long famously, but Leven and Dawn really hit things off.

“Leven, my dear why are you so sad?” I watched Dawn and Leven from the top of the stairs. Gosh you must all think I’m a creeper, but you know what? My house my rules 😉

“Ms. Dawn, have you ever had a broken heart?” I guess my telling her everyone goes through it didn’t really sink in, but I was glad she felt comfortable talking to Dawn.

“Of course Leven, before I fell for your brother I was in love with a man named Lerk. I thought he was the one for me and when we parted it was devastating. Why do you ask?”

Leven let it all out then. She told Dawn all about Brighton and how his family just left and she hasn’t even gotten a call, text, letter or email from him letting her know he was okay or that he was sorry they had to leave so suddenly.

Dawn had all the right words for the young Leven and by the end of the conversation they were both laughing. Sometimes a mother’s word is not taken, but the same words from a friend go a long way. I am not sure that Leven is completely over her loss, but talking to Dawn sure did help.

Many mornings Dawn and I would go out in the back, by the little pond we have, and do some yoga.  The children were sleeping late and the men were watching some brainless man show and we just enjoyed the quite.  The chipping of the birds, the crock of the frogs and the splashing of the fish, it was quite relaxing.

“So are you nervous about the wedding?” I asked Dawn causally as we sat in the cool waters of the pond one morning after yoga.

Dawn giggled nervously. “Should I be talking to you about this? You are my finances’ mother.”

“Dawn, I’m your friend too, but if you would rather….”

“Yes!” She blurted out. “I have no idea why either. I love Newbie and we already live together why would the marriage make me nervous?”

I took her hand. “Because things will change. They may be small subtle things, but things are going to change.”

“I’m not sure I want things to change, but I want to marry Newbie with all my heart and soul.”

“Honey, it will be fine. You two are perfect together.”

“Babe!” I heard Asher call from the house. “When are you going to make breakfast? The kids will be up soon.”

I looked at Dawn and we both laughed. “I don’t get him. He is the one who owns his own restaurant and teaches cooking and I am the one who has to make breakfast.” I rolled my eyes and we got out of the pond and headed toward the house.

~~~

AHSER’S POV

Hi folks…I guess it is my turn to write in Ashby’s blog. I hope I don’t bore you all too much.

So two days before Dawn and Newbie were to leave I decided to take Newbie out for a day. Just the two of us doing guy stuff.

We spent the morning working on out golfing skills.  I’m still not that great but we had a good time.

Then I took him to the local bar and grill for some lunch.  Our conversations were filled with guy stuff like sports, our women and food.  It was a great bonding moment for us.  Newbie may not be my child, but I love all Ashby’s children as if they were my own.

After we ate we headed upstairs to play a little shuffle board. I decided that this was the time to bring up his impending marriage. I cleared my throat and began. “So Newbie, are you nervous about the wedding night.” I knew he caught my drift by the look on his face.

Newbie let out a deep laugh and looked at me. “Asher, Dawn and I have two kids together, remember?”

“I know, but your children are grown. It has been a while.”

“Also it wasn’t that long ago I was dating Breeze. I am an adult you know?”

I gulped loudly. This was not going as planned not at all.

“No offence Asher, but you’re not my dad.”

I knew he meant it in the most respectful way and he was right I’m not his dad, but the words still hurt. Ashby has 48 (49 counting Derrick) children and only five of them were mine. It is hard to in a relationship like that. I just wanted all her kids to be mine and to love me as if I were their father, but it just isn’t possible. “I’m sorry if I over stepped. I just thought since your father is an angel and he wasn’t around when you were growing up I could try to help in some way.” I was trying to hide the hurt expression on my face, but I think I failed at it.

Newbie’s face sank and he moved toward placing his hand on my shoulder. “Asher, you are a great man. You take care of my mom, love her and understand her challenge when most men wouldn’t. You love all of us as if we were yours and we love and respect you back. I would be proud to be your son, but we all have fathers.”

His words were precious to me. His mother really did raise him right. I wipe a single tear from my eye and smile at the lad before me.

“Come on Asher. Let’s head back to the house.”

~~~
ASHBY’S POV

It was our last night with our house guests and Dawn and I decided to head out to the local casino for a night of fun and gambling (smart gambling though).

We sat down at a table, both of us not really knowing what we were doing, and we handed the dealer our money and he gave us some red chips in return.

The first couple of rounds both Dawn and I seemed to have good hands. Hands that warranted one of us to get some money for it.

Then our luck began to change.  After we began to start losing our money the game wasn’t much fun anymore and we soon quit.

We had a great time at the casino and I was going to be sad when my friend and son left, but I also knew that I would be seeing them again soon to watch them down the aisle.

It seems like most flights off the island leave at night and Dawn and Newbie’s flight was no exception and since they had most of the day left we decided to go to the boardwalk for the day.

The kids were especially excited for this. We all watched as the younger ones played some skeet ball. Seely was the winner of this game. As I watched my kids I couldn’t help but worry about Seely and Jones being separated, but was glad that Fern, Tyme and Barklay included him in almost everything they did.

I stood next to my husband and couldn’t help but whisper in his ear how handsome he looked and how good he smelled.

These two are just the cutest ever.  I couldn’t wait for them to walk down the aisle and become man and wife.

Asher and I waited in line for the Ferris Wheel.  I just can’t stop myself from admiring his handsome face.

Newbie handed his camera to Asher. “Mom, come take a picture with Dawn and I.”
I walked over to the loving couple and Newbie threw his arm around me. “1…2…3…”Asher called and snapped this picture. FYI Dawn is not preggo….it is just the material on her shirt and the angle of the camera.

Then Newbie looked at his watch. “Mom we need to get our luggage out of your car. Our cab will be here in ten minutes.”

I sighed and looked into his face. I never had enough time with my kids ever. Not growing up and not when they visit. “Okay but first can we get a family picture?”

“Sure.”

I gave my camera to the skeet ball vender and this is the picture he got of us:

Nice looking family if I do say so myself.

After the picture was taken we headed down to the car and got Newbie and Dawn’s luggage and soon their cab pulled up. We said our good-byes and as the sun began to sink they drove away and we got in to the car and headed home.

~~

About a week after Newbie and Dawn left I decided to get moving with my challenge so I called up the next birthday stone guy.

Remember this guy?  This is Linen Pearl.  He was the next guy in line for my challenge and he ran right over when I called him.  We headed to the hospital and soon I was pregnant with baby 49.

During my pregnancy Leven and Hooper aged up and moved out of the house. What lovely young adults they were. Leven with her grandma’s hair coloring and my skin tone and eye coloring and Hopper with his dads hair and skin coloring and my eye coloring, gosh they are going to do well in whatever they do.

~~

When the kids went back to school I decided to do some “spring” cleaning if you will. I had boxes that I inherited after my parents died that I had never sorted through and though this pregnancy would be a good time do this. What I found was priceless and brought tears to my eyes.

It was old pictures of my parents when my mom was pregnant with me.  I missed my parents so very much but finding these was more valuable than gold to me.

hahaha Mom you are too cute. What are you trying to seduce dad when you are about ready to give birth? I’m not sure I would appreciate that. HAHAHHA
Needless to say I got them framed and these pictures now hang up in my home.
I also got a package from my son Jones.

He had gone through the family albums and found a painter to paint this for me. It is a picture of me, my dad (if he were still living) and my boys that inherited my father’s genes.

From right to left (I know we usually say left to right, but it will make more sense doing it this way): Jones, Lawrence (my dad), Me (with my original hair color), Newbie, Dallas (Newbie’s son with Dawn) and Dallas’ son Ash (with Carlie Fey, Logan Fey’s daughter).

~~

The children were settled back in school when the new baby, or should I say babies arrived.

Everyone meet Mason (baby 49), Monroe (baby 50) and Marko (baby 51).

~~

Can you all believe it? I am now at the halfway mark. I am so excited. This is amazing. Thank you all for being a long on this ride. I love you all.
Again as always thank you all for reading and I would love to hear what you have to say about the challenge. Feedback, even bad (but not Hateful), is welcome. You can leave me a message here or on my Facebook page at Ashby Lemi.
Remember if you want any of my children I upload them as Young Adults and you can find their links on the table of content page.

Ashby Lemi – Baby 39

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 39

 

            Soon after Song and Rue were born Asher was visiting Capri and Carter.  They knew how much he missed Jackrabbit and their dog had a litter of puppies.  Let’s just say that the girls turned on their “but daddy” look and Asher came home with the Lemi’s second puppy Sake.  Look at these two I think Sassy and Sake are going to be the best of friends.

            Before the Lemi’s knew it the toddlers Song and Rue were children.  Ashby had a small party with a karaoke machine the children loved it.

             However the one that Ashby had a hard time dragging away from the machine was Scrooge.  Is there a singer in the making?  His LTW has nothing to do with singing.   How will this all go down?

            He would get ready for bed and then sneak back outside for one more song.  Song couldn’t resist joining him to dance around.  Ashby had to break down and buy one of their own.

            Cindi-Lou and Song soon became great friends.  You couldn’t find one without the other.  Rue would look at the two of them and think to herself, “Aren’t I Song’s Twin?  Cindi-Lou already had two siblings of her own.”  Rue just didn’t understand how Song and Cindi-Lou bonded.

            Song was making friends all over the house.  When she wasn’t found playing with Cindi-Lou she was playing with her other best friend Sake.  She and that dog were inseparable.  I can’t even imagine how it will affect little Sake when Song ages up someday and moves out.

            Now who is this guy you may be asking?  Well let me tell you.  This is Cooper and he was once an imaginary friend.  How is that possible you may ask, well let me tell you.

It was close to prom and Bay, who had become really great friends with her cousin Wing Angel, was dateless.  Wing was very popular with her exotic looks and her sweet personality and had may suitors.  She was actually going with two boys to prom, now before you think badly of the girl just know the three of them were going as friends and nothing more.  No matter how hard Bay tried everyone either didn’t want to go to prom or already had dates.  She was becoming hopeless and almost didn’t go, but then a great idea hit her.

            “Mom, I need to talk to you.”  she approached Ashby with a level head.

“What is it darling?”

“I would like your permission to change my imaginary friend into a real boy.”  Bay said calmly.

“What?  Bay what are you talking about?”

“I read in the newspaper that the science facility has come up with a potion to make imaginary friends real, but only someone eighteen and older can get this potion.”

Ashby stared at her daughter in disbelieve.  When she doesn’t say anything Bay continues.  “I know it will be another mouth to feed and it will make your challenge standstill, but it won’t be for long because soon after prom I will be aging up to move out and I will take with me.  Please mom….I just *chokes* can’t go to prom without a date.”

The look on Bay’s face broke her mother’s heart.  Bay never asked for anything really so how could Ashby say no to her one big request.  She knew her beautiful daughter would be moving on soon and she always wanted to make her children happy.  “Now Bay I want to say that I have taught you better than this.  It shouldn’t matter what other Sims think of you only what you think of yourself.  I want you to remember that.”

“I will.”  Bay held her breath waiting for an answer.

“Okay I will go check it out while you are in school on Monday.”

Several days later Cooper was part of the Lemi clan and he and Bay spent a lot of time together.

 

            Then the big day had arrived.  Cooper and Bay dressed in red, the theme of the prom was “Our Hearts Will Go On”.  Cheesy I know but they liked it.  In the week they had together before prom the two took swing lessons and they showed off all their great moves together.  These too really seemed like they were made for each other.  They were completely in sync with each other.

            Not only did they dance, but they enjoyed other activities together such as karaoke and video games.

Cooper had been watching all the other couples the whole night and observed guys kissing their gals and as they walked home that night he draped his jacket over her bare shoulders, pulled her close to him and sweetly kissed her maroon lips.  From that moment on Bay knew she was in love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Happy Birthday to you” “Happy Birthday day to you” “Happy Birthday Happy Birthday”  “Happy Birthday to you”

            It was time for another Lemi pool party birthday and the children were all excited.  They had a grand day of swimming and eating, playing tag and talking with friends and loved ones and then it was time to age up.

            First up was Bay and Cooper.

Gosh she acquired a great style and her red hair and brown eyes complement each other really well.  She had perfect skin like her mother and she was ready to take on the world.

            What a cute couple these two make.  I think they may just make it.  What do you think?

            Since Bay and Cooper were leaving early the next morning for their new home Ashby insisted getting her “Good-bye” picture at the party.  What do you think?  Does Bay resemble her mother or do you think she got more of James’ look?

            “Play that funky music white boy.”  Scrooge grew up with music still in his blood.  His instrument of choice, just like his mom, was her old electric guitar.  He has inherited a unique look.  He got a lot of his dad’s features with his mom’s eye coloring.  What do you think of Scrooge’s look?

            Marlie, Marlie, Marlie….what a pretty girl you turned out to be.  She got her grandma’s hair coloring and she loves the outdoors.  She is super sweet and a joy to have around even with her slob trait.

Cindi-Lou loves make-up and has become quite girlie in her teenage years.  Her hair is lighter than her sister’s and she got real pretty steel-blue eyes but she is just as sweet as her twin and the triplets are so very close.

            These three are Ashby’s third set of triplets.  The frist one being Simi/Stella/Sunshine and the 2nd her first set of Christmas triples Kemper/Kole/Kenyon.  Love to see how different these three are.

            Now that the Christmas girls are teens they spend more time together whispering about boys and talking make-up and clothes.

Song and Cindi-Lou were still close, but the age gap finally bridged and it was different when they hung out and soon it became less and less.  However, with this change in Song’s life she didn’t run to Rue like Rue had hopped, but spent more time with Sake and her friends at school.  Poor Rue could not figure out why her twin didn’t want to spend time with her, but she held her head high and found other things to occupy her time.

The day after the birthday’s Bay and Cooper moved out and Asher went out-of-town to a cooking convention.

~~~~~~~~

            Asher was gone and the kids were at school all day and Ashby started to get bored.  With no potential dad in line she decided to roam around Sunset Valley, there were new venues in town and she wanted to check them out.

            “Mom”  Ashby heard as she walked into the new community lot, that she can’t remember the name of, and looked up.

“Capri.”  Ashby opened her arms and embraced her daughter after she bridged the gap between them.  “How have you been my love?”

Singing filled the air and the two women diverted their attention to it.

            To see Stella (baby 5) and Hannah (baby 2) singing a duet together.  It warmed Ashby’s heart to see two of her children spending time together.  She and Carter stood there, with Ashby’s around Carter’s waist, watching the girls sing until the song was over.  Afterwards they all had lunch together and Stella told Ashby about the mechanical bull on the second floor.  Ashby, who has the adventurous trait, decided she must check it out.

            Ashby, I don’t think the bull is for you.  haha.

After she was thrown from the bull she approached the bar for something to ease her pain.  While sitting there the bartender made a comment about how limber she was and that she should try out the new profession that opened up for sims.  Ashby inquired about this new job and was told that she could be an Acrobat if she worked real hard.

She thought it sounded fun and since the hours were very flexible she thought it was a great way to spend her time when she had a lull in her challenge.

            And here is her new work attire for now.  You start out this career as a mime.  She looks pretty confused hear, but I have faith she will figure it out.

            Or maybe not.  Well Ashby did catch on and it wasn’t longe before she was able to upgrade her “tricks”.

            “Tada.”  She was so glad to be out of her mime outfit and into her jugglers one.

            Careful Ash those could be dangerous.

            One day Ashby had a knock on her door and when she opened it she was greeted by these three men.  The man in the middle is Russett Garnet, the guy on the left is Amethyst Eggplant and the one of the right is Caribbean Aquamarine.  They explained they were part of a group called the Birthday Brothers.  There are 12 members all the same color as the birthstone of the month they were born in and all 12 had the name of their birthstone in their name.  They wanted to be in her challenge.  They knew that if she agreed it would be a lot of “catching” up because it was March already and all 12 wanted to participate.

Ashby thought about this for a while and these man just had such great feathers that she couldn’t pass it up.  So she agreed and told Russett to meet her at the clinic the next day.

~~~~~~~~

            While Ashby waits for her new addition lets play UPDATE.

The poll that was on my blog asked who you wanted an update on and Journey and her girlfriend Sami Blood was chosen.  I had pictures for this update, but unfortunately I somehow lost them, but I can still provide you with this update.

~~Joureny and Sami~~

            Soon after Journey and her girlfriend moved out drama started to happen.  As Ashby predicted Sami wasn’t as committed to Journey as Journey was to her and within months found herself pregnant.  She never did tell Journey who the father was and all they did was fight. Journey calls her mom and goes to her house often but refuses to leave Sami she desperately wants to work it out.  Sami had twins Conrad and Bertha.

~~Woody and Fawna~~

            The two of them have two children now.  You have met Razz and now meet Cassandra.

 ~~Bay and Cooper~~

            These two didn’t waste anytime.  They had a son named Raul.

 

~~~~~~~~

 

            Finally Little O’Deen Garnet Lemi joined the Lemi family. 

            And Asher came home.  These two love each other so much.  If the world only knew……….

Thank you as always for reading.  Your interest keeps me going.  I appreciate all of you. Please I would love to hear what you have to say.  Leave me a message here or on FB at Ashby Lemi.

Ashby Lemi – Baby 34, 35 and 36 ~ Part 2

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABIES 34, 35 AND 36

 PART 2

The days following more of Ashby’s children began to arrive.

Violet Newbie’s Granddaughter’s babies: 17, Heavenly, 16, Bren, and their families; Heavenly’s teenage son MyTie, Bren’s husband Matthew and daughter’s Silva and Flower.

 And the last to arrive were the first born.  Babies 2 Hannah and Baby 1 Harmony and Harmony’s family husband Max and daughter Wing.

Ashby’s heart was overfilled with happiness and she couldn’t believe so many of her babies were home for the holidays.

 

A week before Christmas Eve Ashby worked hard and got everyone who was home in a family picture.

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE LEMI’S, BRIGHT’S AND STARR’S. 

Due to the approaching holiday and so many people in the house Ashby did something she rarely did.  She aged up four of her children.  Rian, Riker, Rollin and Woody all aged up three days before Christmas Eve.

The three of them, Rian, Rollin, and Riker, aged beautifully into young adults.  Ashby got her goodbye picture and a promise they would be back for the Christmas Eve party.

Woody aged into a handsome Teenager, with an obsession to dark music and dark baggy clothes.  Ashby was use to teenage antics and knew she had to let him be himself unless it starts causing problems with others or himself.

At the party Ashby was pretty heavy with baby 34 and even though Ash had the evil and mean spirited traits he loves his mother and he doted all over her and the unborn baby.

At the birthday party Heavenly was able to tell her mother that she was going to have a boy, and this excited Ashby.

Bonding time with her children is something Ashby craved and held dear to hear heart, and tried as often as she could to do this.

The next few days felt like one big party with the Christmas Eve party just days after the birthday party.

This is a good time to introduce you to father of baby 34.  Here is a Who from Whoville created by Gingerbuttons: The Who From Whoville

He had come from Whoville after the Grinch had spread the rumor that Ashby Starr was a, well he wasn’t very nice in his words, so the Who looked her up and asked to participate in the challenge and since this would be another Christmas baby Ashby jumped at the chance.

During the party Ashby went into labor.  The children and even Asher began to freak out.

When Asher did calm down he head to get the car, but Ashby calmly reminded him of the arrangement.  The father of the baby gets to come to the hospital and besides he needed to stay and take care of Bay.  Asher hated this part of the challenge, but he stayed back and allowed Ashby to drive herself to the hospital.

After Ashby delivered her babies and she was resting peacefully, before the first feeding, she had the most wondrous experience that she just refers to as her Christmas miracle.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Ashby…Ashby…I’m over here.”  An angelic but familiar voice called out to her.  Ashby followed the voice through the beautiful park.

When she found the source of the voice she gasped in pure shock.

Standing on water before her was her guardian angel and the father of Newbie and Quinn, Gabriel Holy.

“Where are we?”  She finally managed when she was able to talk.

“That doesn’t matter.  What matters is why I brought you here.”

He moved closer to her and put his hand on her shoulder.  “I’ve decided to give you a Christmas gift.  I have brought back some of your loved ones that have passed on, but just for tonight though.”

“Connery and my girl’s?”  Ashby squealed in delight.

“Ashby I couldn’t find Connery’s soul, but your girls will be here.”

Ashby couldn’t believe her ears; she was going to see her five beautiful girls that she had lost due to a meteor.  However she couldn’t keep herself from wondering why Connery wasn’t among them.

“Mom?”  She hears from behind her.  She looks up into Gabriel’s eyes and sees the pleased look on his face and she turns around as he dissipated.

Ashby turned around to see Callum, JayLeen and Roisin standing before her.  Tears splash down her face as she runs to them hugging them so very tightly.  She didn’t want to let go.  She didn’t want this time with them to be over ever again.

Then two more angelic voices ring out uttering the words she had always wanted to hear from them, “Mom.”

Ashby turned to see Rooney and Royce and a lump formed in her throat.  The last time she had seen them they were toddlers and standing before her were two gorgeous young ladies.

“Babies.”  Ashby choked out and fell to her knees.  The girls ran to her embracing her.

This was truly a miracle.

They spent their time together having a day in the park and catching up.  They assured Ashby that they were happy.  They missed her and their siblings but they were happy and not in any pain at all.

The girls had many questions about Ashby and her challenge.  They wanted to know what baby she was on and when Ashby told them that she was married they wanted to hear all about Asher.

The time held a lot of hugging and crying and smiling, but it was time that Ashby would never forget and with all the wonderful things in her life and the new babies being born on Christmas Eve she couldn’t help but think that Gabriel gave her the best gift ever.

As their time together came to an end Ashby and her girls just sat taking in everything.

When Ashby “woke” up it was to a screaming, hungry baby.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When Asher got the call from Ashby letting him know she was fine and that she had more than one baby he had no choice but to age Bay up. He wanted to wait for Ashby but bringing home three new babies and having a toddler at home would be a lot for her.

She grew into a beautiful child with a style of her own.  She has James’s eyes, Ashby hair and skin tone and a personality that filled a room.

Ashby had three babies on December 24, 2011.

Let me introduce you too:

Scrooge Who Lemi, he is named after the famous Ebenezer Scrooge from the Christmas Carol.  Scrooge is quite the cutie with Ashby’s eye color and many other features from his father.

Marlie Who Lemi, she too was named after a character in the Christmas Carol and that character is Jacob Marley.  She got her Grandma Mirid’s hair coloring and eye coloring.  She has Ashby’s skin tone and she is one cute little girl.

And Cindi-Lou Who Lemi, she was named after a famous Who, with just a slightly different spelling.  She got her grandma’s hair coloring and a good mixture of her mom and dad’s features.

These three tikes are a wonderful addition to the Lemi household.  Stay tuned to find out what these three Christmas babies have in store for them.

Also several of Ashby’s children who had come home for Christmas has moved to Sunset Valley.  Keep an eye out to see who comes for a visit.

Ashby Lemi – Baby 34, 35 and 36 ~ Part 1

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABIES 34, 35 AND 36

 PART 1

Time moved on for the Lemi’s and before anyone knew it the holiday’s of 2011 were upon them.  Thanksgiving, for a challenge mom, was small.  None of her kids in Sunset Valley or otherwise could make it except for Newbie and Quinn, but they didn’t stay but a couple of hours and not even for dinner.  When Ashby found out that they heated up Turkey T.V. dinners when they got home she was utterly heartbroken.  Ashby made a dinner for her, Asher and the children at home and then she and Asher stopped by Violet and A.J.’s house.  It was a beautiful, fulfilling Thanksgiving, but Ashby missed her children.

During the short time Newbie and Quinn had been home during Thanksgiving Asher and the two of them had taken time out to go to the park to play some football and from the time they came back Asher had been acting strange and secretive.  Ashby couldn’t understand why and when she questioned him about it he would tell her that he wasn’t acting any different so after a while she just pushed the thoughts out of her head.

Every year a week after Thanksgiving Ashby sets aside a day to get her home ready for Christmas, and this year was no exception.  When Asher left to get the tree Ashby climbed into the attic and took down the decorations and began to sort what she had and what she had bought during the Friday after Thanksgiving.

When Asher got home with the tree Ashby got the surprise of her life.  She received an early Christmas present, one that will keep giving until shortly after the holiday.

Quinn, Dawn Turner and Newbie pulled in behind Asher.  Asher ran up the stairs, kissed an excited Ashby on the cheek and all four of them yelled, “SURPRISE”.

“So this is what you have been keeping secret?”  Ashby laughed hugging her husband.

“Yes.  It was killing me not to be able to tell you, but I promised the boys.”

Bounding down the porch steps Ashby rushed to her children and her good friend.

“Baby boy, I’m so happy to see you.”  Ashby pulled Newbie into her arms.

“Mom you just saw me a week ago and you know I hate when you call me baby boy.”

Ashby just ignored him and moved to Quinn.

After a similar hug to the youngest of the twins she asked the question on her mind.  “How long do I get you this time?”

“Dawn will have to head back later tonight, but Newbie and I are staying until after Christmas.”

The excitement on Ashby’s face was priceless and the boys were so glad they were able to take time away from their life to give their mom the best gift and that is the gift of time and love.

“Asher, can you go make Dawn and I some coffee?”  Ashby asked as she took Dawn’s hand and led her into the house.

Ashby and Dawn made themselves comfortable for good quality catch up time.  They talked about their kids and how they spend their time away from their kids and then about love.

“So what is going on between you and my son?”  Ashby asked with a smile on her face.

Dawn reached over and softly hit Ashby on her knee, “Oh stop Ashby.  Nothing is going on.  We are best friends and nothing more.  You know I am involved with Lerk, but Newbie has been so great in his absence in being there for me when things are rough.  I am grateful that you raised such a wonderful son.”

“I’m not sure I had such a hand in the man he has become.”  Ashby let slip her insecurities of being a challenge mom and how fast a challenge child grows and moves out.  “I think a lot has to do with the fact that his father is an angel.  With that kind of blood coursing through one’s body there really can’t be much room for error.”

Dawn took her friends hand and squeezed.  “Ash, we all do our best.  All of us struggle with how fast out children age and are out on their own, but let me reassure you Newbie and Quinn and all your other children wouldn’t be who they are without you as their mother.  Have faith in that.”

“Yeah all of them even Lockland.”  Ashby muttered under her breath.

Dawn caught it, but just as she was going to try to change the subject Newbie called from the other room.  “Mom, Dawn we have the tree up and it is ready to decorate.”

The two women pull themselves away from girl time and head to the boys to start decorating.

The decorations were going us as the Christmas music filled the room.  Quinn grabed his mother and began spinning her around the room in beat to the music.  Asher, Dawn and Newbie clapped their hands as the two danced.

Then Newbie took Dawn into his arms and dipped her and kissed her gently on her forehead.

 They were all having a grand time dancing and decorating and the house looked beautiful.  Asher grilled a delicious dinner for them and the kids and then it was time for Dawn to head to the airport to fly back to Twinbrook.

Newbie led her by her hand to the door and the awaiting cab.

He hugged her and watched her move down the stairs to the cab and with a heavy heart he went back inside.  With the late hour all the kids were in bed, Asher and Ashby were upstairs trying to calm Bay down and Quinn was checking email so Newbie headed out back for some air.

 Quinn noticed his brother seemed perplexed and followed.

“Upset that she is gone bro?”  He asked leaning against the slide ladder that Newbie was already sitting on.

“Yeah.”  Newbie had a faraway gaze on his face.

“Dude, are you in love with Dawn?”

Newbie was shocked by Quinn’s question.  “No…Um…Of course not.  She is my best friend and besides she is with Lerk.  I just worry about her all alone while we are here.”

Quinn gives his brother a look that says “Okay?” and the two talk about the upcoming holiday season.

The next morning over coffee Newbie and Quinn sprung it on Ashby that there is more to their surprise, but they were not going to tell her what it is.  They just told her to be on the lookout for little surprises from then until Christmas.  Ashby couldn’t think of what more she could ask for or want, but the boys would not cave and tell her.

That afternoon Ashby arranged Christmas pictures with everyone in the house.

 

 

 

Ashby was very pleased with the results, well all except for Riker’s expression, and she couldn’t imagine her Christmas getting any better then what she already had.

The next morning after the kids went to school Ashby heard honking from the driveway.  She was puzzled and when she walked onto the porch she was once again surprised.

Babies 23, 24 and 25 were standing outside.  Ashby was downright shocked.  She hadn’t seen twins Addison and Taloria since they moved overseas and Lockland, she hadn’t seen him since he ran away to be with his dad.

From phone calls, emails, skype and the occasional letter Ashby knew that Addison was doing well as a model; she saw her picture on many different ads for clothing and perfumes.  Taloria was doing very well in her clothing design and even had her own brand on the market, nothing that Ashby could afford but she loved looking at her stuff and seeing how beautiful it was.  When Taloria introduced her to her fiancée Europe Bonjour Ashby was overjoyed that her daughter had found loved.

Then there was Lockland one of her three vampire babies, when he aged into a teen he ran away to be with this dad, Darko Mulberry, after his dad poisoned his mind against Ashby and Asher.  When Ashby saw him she ran over, grabbed his face in her hands and looked him dead in his red eyes.  “Baby, I am so glad you’re here.”

“Mom, I..Ah..”

“The past is the past.  I am just so grateful that you are here.  I thought I would never see you again.”  She hugged him then took his hand to lead him into the house.  “Who are this lovely lady and cute little boy?”

Lockland introduced his wife Silk and his son McKay.  When they went inside and he saw Asher he got the same greeting from Asher.  Asher wasn’t his true father, but growing up he loved him as he was.

That night at dinner Lockland informed them that soon after he became a young adult he started to question the things Darko did and said and soon he wasn’t agree with them.  After witnessing several questionable things from Darko he wasn’t to be cured of his vampirism.  However if you are born vampire they don’t just let you get cured.  They make you go though counseling first and during the group part of it he met Silk.  In the end she was cured and he decided that he was a vampire, but he didn’t have to be like his father.  They married soon after meeting and McKay was born shortly after that.

Ashby was sure blessed to have this many of her kids home and once again she had the kids change into their Christmas outfits for pictures.

 

 

The pictures once again turned out great.  Ashby was so on the verge of tears when she was able to get a picture of her and her son Lockland and her cute grandson McKay.

Within the next week six more children arrived at the Lemi house to spend the holiday with their mom.

 Babies 6, Sunshine, 5, Stella, and 4, Simi.

Babies: 3, Greyson; 9, Ash and 12, Kenyon.

Ashby was overcome with emotion that so many of her children were home for the holidays.  She couldn’t believe her luck and the love she was blessed with, and after the kids were settled Ashby had Asher get out the camera once again for Christmas pictures.

The house was full, but full of love and so it didn’t seem like there were so many people in one house.

 Ashby stood in the doorway watching Ash and Kenyon play a video game together.  These two weren’t raised together but they were taking time to get to know one another.  This is what family is all about and Ashby loved observing her children.

 Next to arrive were babies 7, Jury, and 8, Journey and Journey brought her girlfriend Sami Blood.

Several days after Jury, Journey and Sami had been there Ashby decided she needed to talk to Journey about Sami.  Sami’s behavior was something that Ashby didn’t approve of and even though it wasn’t the ideal time and place Ashby was still Journey’s mother and she felt they needed to talk.

“Sweetie we need to talk about Sami.”  Ashby tried to approach her daughter with an even temper.

“What about Sami.”  Right away Journey was on the defense.  She wasn’t sure how her mother was going to take the fact that she was a lesbian.  She had never really “come out” to her and just sprung Sami on her.

“Well she has been quite rude since she has been here.  She has cursed in front of Bay, she has given not so good styling advice to Rian and she is just downright rude to Asher and the boys.”  Ashby rubbed the back of her neck.

“Are you just lashing out because you don’t like that I am in love with a woman?”  Journey’s tone is full of venom.

“What?  No.  Honey, I don’t care that you are a lesbian.  I love you no matter what, but if Sami is going to stay in my house she has to be respectful that is all I am saying.”

Tears slide down Journey’s face.  “I will talk to her about it.  I’m sorry and I am sorry for my outburst.  I guess I just wish I would have told you about Sami and about who I am.”

Ashby pulled her daughter into a hug.  “Please don’t ever be afraid to talk to me about anything.  I am your mother and I love you.  I am just a phone call away my Love.”

As Journey wiped her tears away she gave Ashby one more present and that was that she, Jury and Sami were moving to Sunset Valley.  The house she and Sami were going to rent would be ready for them to move into in two days and Jury was moving to her new place the day after.  Ashby couldn’t be more excited.

Ashby Lemi – Baby 33

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 33

Time always goes by so fast in the Lemi household and before they even got use to having a new baby in the house it was time for Woody to age into a toddler.

Ashby made arrangements for a big party.  Everyone who loved Woody was there: Big Brother Keskey, Aunt Vi, Uncle A.J., and even “aunt” Christy Quinn.

The kids played on the outside toys while the adults had some much needed catch up time.  Ashby was surprised that Keskey was still single.  He is such a handsome boy, but she knew that he was happy and that was all that mattered.

What a carbon copy of his folks.  Woody Lemi is going to be just as handsome as his daddy.

It didn’t take long for Capri to figure out that with Woody a toddler it would soon be her and Carter’s turn to become young adults and leave the nest.  She really didn’t like the thought of leaving her mom and Asher.  She loved being a Lemi and she wasn’t ready to leave.

The next few weeks after the birthday party she became distracted with school and being a teenager.  She stopped stressing about having to leave and decided just to enjoy the time she is at home.

When she won prom queen at prom she was thrilled.  She walked around the house with a dreamy look on her face.  The only thing that could have made it better is if she had a boyfriend to share the honor with.

Ashby got her family together for a family photo and since October is the month for breast cancer awareness she had them dress in pink for the cause.

Top left: Rollin, Rian, Riker, Ashby, Carter, Capri, Woody and Asher; and a stunning family they make.

Having only one child and Asher and the other kids gone all day, gave Ashby plenty of bonding time with her 32nd baby boy.  They had skill lessons, snuggle time and even took long walks around town.

Even though in the back of her mind having on child at a time meant that her challenge would take longer, she really enjoyed having this one on one time with her boy.

Things started to change in the Sim world and Sunset Valley wasn’t missed.  One night after homework and dinner the kids heard a pleasant musical sound coming from outside.  When they peeked out the window they saw an ice cream truck.  They were so amazed and got very excited.

Asher and Ashby, who had heard that this was traveling around the neighborhood, distributed money and allowed the kids to get a nice ice cream treat.

Rollin, who isn’t into sweets, pocketed the money and went into his room to play video games.

Rian got a fun pink ice cream cone with sprinkles.

As Riker exited the house he heard a faint meow from the corner of the porch.  He looked over and saw a dirty, hungry cat.  He reached down and the cat sniffed at his hand and then began rubbing around his legs.  Riker ran in to get a saucer of milk for the sweet little guy but when he can back out the cat was gone and so was the ice cream truck.

Knowing their birthday was right around the corner the girls were very dedicated to their school work.  They came home each day and settled down at the kitchen table and dug right into their homework, but they always reward themselves when they were done.  They enjoyed jamming along with some Flo Rider and other music.

“So what kind of party do you two want?”  Ashby asked them one night at dinner.

“I want to wear costumes.”  Carter chimmed in with a mouth full of food.

“Oh I know.  Let’s have one of those Murder Mystery parties I have read about.”  Capri replied.

“Sounds fun.  Where can we find the stuff for a party like that?”  Ashby asked.

“I will look online before school tomorrow.”  Capri smiled at her mom.

With the kit purchased, the costumes made/bought, and the menu planned it was time to celebrate the twins birthday into young adulthood.

“Mom, Dad…they don’t have cavemen and panda’s in this game.”  Capri was mortified about how they were dressed.

“I love it.”  The always unique Carter chimed in.

“Well lets get this party started.”  Asher avoided feeding Capri’s annoyance.

The family had a great time acting out the game and in the end it was discovered that  Rian’s character was the killer.

After the game it was cake and then the girls aged up.

Carter, wow what a beautiful girl.  She is a carbon copy of her mom and got none of her dads looks.  She is still as unique as she was the day she was born.  Her nose ring actually brings out her features.  Carter Greensnip Lemi

Capri was just as stunning as her sister.  She too didn’t get any looks from her father, but wow what a stunning girl she is.  Capri Greensnip Lemi

Ashby got her good-bye picture with her girls and then her girls left the Lemi household.

The next morning, Saturday, Riker left the house early and came back around noon.

“Mom… Mom.”  He yelled as he crashed through the door.

“What is it son?”  Ashby said as she came around the corner.

Standing at the front door was Riker holding the dirty cat that he first saw a few weeks before.

With desperation in his eye Riker cleared his throat.  “Mom can I keep him?  I have been going around town finding him and taking care of him, but today when I went looking for him I had to stop a dog from picking on him.  He would be safer here and I would take care of him and my allowance would go toward food.  Pleeeeeassse.”

Ashby looked at her son and saw the connection he had formed with the cat and how the cat looked up at him with gratitude and adoration.

“Riker do you promise that you will take care of this animal?  Asher and I will help for the next week, but after next weekend when you are teenager it will be your sole responsibility.”

“Yes mom..I promise I promise!” He cried in excitment.

“Well then if you promise you can keep it.”

Riker set the cat down gently and ran to Ashby and threw his arms around her.  “Oh thank you mom.  Thank you!”

 That evening Riker, Mask (that is what Riker called him) and Asher went to the new pet store in town and bought all the things Mask would need to be a part of the Lemi family.

The weekend and the triplets birthday was upon the Lemi family and the kids wanted their party with just family at the park.  They played all day and then that evening they had a nice picnic of grilled salmon, made my Asher, and then it was time to age up.

First up was Rian.  She is a cute girl with her fathers features, and her grandma Mirid’s skin and eye color, with Ashby hair color.

Next up was the middle twin and cat owner, Riker.  He got his fathers hair, eye shape and skin color, but the rest of the features are more of Ashby.

And last but not least Rollin.  He got a his grandma’s hair color, his father skin and and eye coloring and a nice combination of Ashby and Terrance’s features.

These three could be trouble with their good looks and their close bond.  I guess we will see.

Mask was making himself comfortable in the Lemi household.  He could be found playing with the various toys Riker bought him or basking in the sun.  Riker had been true to his word and he and Mask are the best of friends.

It wasn’t long and the Lemi’s were adding a new pet to the house.  It seems that Rian has the same kind heart as Riker and one day she decided to walk home from school instead of taking the bus and she came across this bird.  His wing was broken.  She spent some time getting it to trust her and once it did she scooped him up and brought him home to nurse him back to health.  She called him Kokoro (thank you to Sonny Wells for the name).

One Sunday morning there came a knock on the door.  Asher was at work and the triplets were out doing teenager things and Woody was taking his nap.  Ashby wasn’t excpecting anyone and found it curious that she had a visitor.

She opened the door and found a young man standing there.  “Hi I’m….”

“James Quinn, What are you doing here?”  Ashby said excitedly.

“You know me?”  He asked with a grin on his face.

“Of course I do.  Your mom is one of my best friends ever.  What do I owe this honor?”  Christy Quinn

“Well this is a bit awkward, but..”  he rubbed the back of his neck fishing for the words.  “I would like to participate in your challenge.”

The request made Ashby smile.  She loved the thought of having a child that would be Christy’s grandchild.  She already had one of Violet Newbie’s grandchildren and now Christy’s.  This just made her day.

They made plans for Ashby to make an appointment at the hospital and two weeks later she had been inseminated.  With a promise to call him once the baby was born James hugged her and bid her farewell.

The pets were a big hit in the Lemi household, but it was questionable if they liked each other.

With all the new things in the Sim world Asher decided to take up a new hobby and took a riding class.  When he came home he came home with a new addition to the family.

Meet Jackrabbit.  He is the new addition.  Everyone fell in love with him right away. The house and yard are now very crowed, but everyone is very happy.

With her due date just around the corner Ashby threw a party for Woody to age into a child.  She invited family and friends who all came excited to see the little one age up.

“Wow mom, you are big.”  Carter chuckled as she entered the house.

“Why thanks.  That makes me feel so beautiful.”

“Hello little baby.  This is your big brother Keskey.”  He called to the baby.

“You don’t have to shout son.  The baby can hear you in your inside voice.”

“Mom can I feel?”  Carter asked placing her hand on her mother’s stomach.  “Wow this is amazing.”

The birthday swirls took over little Woody and he aged into a handsome young man.  As you know he was named after Addy McKnight (her maiden name is Woodrow) so Ashby sent her a picture of him and she asked her if his outfit attire was done on purpose.  At first she didn’t get it but then it struck her.  hahah.  Woody from Toy Story was a cowboy.  Woody just loves Asher’s horse so much he wants to be a cowboy.

Without further ado I introduce you to baby 33 Bay Quinn Lemi.  She was a very healthy baby girl who was born at home as Ashby was working out.

About a week after Bay was born Ashby got Rian to watch her and she and Asher took some time to just be with each other.  It was their time to reconnect and keep their relationship strong despite the fact that she is having children with other men.

Before anyone knew it Bay was ageing into a toddler and her party was huge with her grandma Christy, her father James, her aunt and uncle Vi and A.J. and her siblings.

What a beautiful little girl she is too.  Her father’s eyes and nose, Ashbys skin and hair.  She is going to be a heart breaker.

Ashby decided she was going to try and start getting pictures of the kids with their fathers to make scrap books for them.  It was something she found important and James was more then willing. He was a proud papa and a wonderful friend.

Here is Bay with her parents and her grandma Christy.

Bay’s auntie Vi and Uncle A.J. bought her this fun swing for her birthday.  She absolutely loves it and Ashby is so thankful for her family.

Thank you as always for reading.  Please I would love to hear your thoughts.  Leave me a message here or find me on facebook under Ashby Lemi.

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.
