Canterbury Cove - a BaCC: Week Three - Lieman  

I am back with week three, this time featuring the Lieman (previously Meadows) family! I think that after this segment I am going to try a new way of writing just to change things up a bit. Anyway, I hope you enjoy. :)


When I got onto the lot, I saw that Rachel had rolled the want to have a baby, which is actually a little strange for a knowledge sim to roll that want. But, what my sims want, they get.

They tried for a baby and were quite successful. I am sure that it is going to be adorable too, and I hope it get's Rachel's unique eye shape.

During this week many paintings were painted and I am not sure why I felt compelled to snap pictures of them all but oh well. It was a really good way for them to make money.

This is Rachel getting her first bump which you can't see because her clothes do not have a pregnancy morph.

This is the finished product of the painting of Rachel and the first picture was supposed to show you how much it was worth, but it failed. Soon after this I switched to a new printscreen program which I hope will be better at taking pictures.

There is no point to this picture other than the fact that I found it amusing.

Soon it was winter at the Lieman's and the penguin decided to pay a visit.

While gardening (in her pajamas) the next day, Rachel entered into her third trimester.

Edward finally got around to earning a bronze badge in gardening which will be really helpful for their little store.

Soon it was time for the baby to be born. And then all hell broke loose...

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week three
If you will notice, yes, that is a fire starting in the kitchen that you can see in the picture in picture window. Edward stopped cooking to come and see his wife give birth and three seconds after he left the stove, it caught on fire.

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week three
So I immediately sent him to put it out.

And while the fire was raging on in the kitchen, baby boy Cameron was born. He appears to have red hair and his mother's eye color.
(Also, just in case you had noticed that so far the babies have been named A,A,B,B,C it is because I am trying to keep track of the amount of boys/girls born into the hood by naming each consecutive baby of each gender with the next letter in the alphabet.)

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week three
The baby was promptly set on the floor so that Rachel could come into the kitchen and do the fire dance.

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week three
To my relief, the fire was put out with no harm done. This brings my fire count up to two so I only need one more to unlock a position in the Law Enforcement career.

After a bit of rest, Rachel headed back to Fresh Fruits and Veggies in order to try and get the business rank up and to make some money.

Things went fairly well.

I really love these two together. You can definitely tell that they are a three bolt couple.

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week three
Both Edward and Rachel were very good parents. They took turns feeding and caring for Cameron and never rolled the annoying fear of changing diapers.

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week three
Other than the baby and the business, Rachel had other things to do like fix the shower.

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week three
And bills needed to be paid.

Later that afternoon Rachel earned her gold badge in gardening which will allow her to "talk to" the plants and insure that they are all the best.

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week three
Later that very same day, the shower broke again and so Rachel had to fix it for a second time. It would probably help if she had more mechanical skill points.

After the shower was fixed it was time for Cameron's birthday. It took a lot of effort and I eventually ended up buying a cake that didn't even get used because he grew up before he could blow out the candles.

So, here is Cameron Lieman. He is a Leo with 3 sloppy, 9 outgoing, 6 active, 5 playful/serious, and 5 nice/grouchy.

sims 2,bacc,canterbury cove,lieman,week threeHe is quite the cutie.

Right after Cameron grew up with the help of ACR, Rachel and Edward headed straight for the couch and they ended up trying for a baby and were successful.

In no time at all, Cameron was taught all of his toddler skills and is now ready to age into a child soon.

Soon Rachel entered into her second trimester and then the week was over. Hopefully she doesn't have twins because their house is too small as it is anyway.

xpinkyhayzx is next to me right now, and she agrees that Cameron (I actually typed Camerona O.o) is ADORABLE :DDD
Their business looked a lot like how my founder's business started out :P She has an awning over it now, though. I kinda want to keep it as a stall, so no walls for this Fruit 'n' Veggie business!
olivethegreatolivethegreat on June 21st, 2010 06:12 am (UTC)
Thank you. I think he has a pretty unique look about him and I love it. :)
I think I am going to turn her little store into a small grocery store eventually. I've already added two of the grocery things and I plan on adding more, though she will always sell produce as well. I think leaving as just a little stall would be cute though. It sounds like a nice idea for you.

I agree that Cameron is adorable, and the parents are so cute together! I enjoy seeing this family.
olivethegreatolivethegreat on June 21st, 2010 07:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks! They are kinda a break from the Carnahans. :)

Cameron really did get his mother's eyes, it's great!
It would be fun if the next baby took after their dad. I like when siblings are not clones :)
olivethegreatolivethegreat on June 23rd, 2010 07:31 am (UTC)
I agree. I really love genetic variety. :)

I'm really late to comment but I just wanted you to know this BaCC has another fan. :3
olivethegreatolivethegreat on June 25th, 2010 04:58 am (UTC)
Not really late. :)
And thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate it and I am glad that you like it!

It was nice catching up with Canterbury Cove. Your toddlers are so cute. I can't wait to see how gen 2 turns out.

On another note, you are so good at getting your toddlers trained. Mine tots are generally lucky if they get any kind of training. lol.
olivethegreatolivethegreat on June 29th, 2010 05:33 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm excited as well. [=

I really focus on getting the tots trained and try to get it done as soon as possible. I always give them smart milk right after they are born and start on the skilling right away.

I'm afraid I'll be echoing what others have said and say that Cameron is definitely a cute toddler -- I especially like how he seems to have inherrited his mother's eye shape. Does Rachel have a secondary family aspiration? She seems to be rolling up a fair number of wants for Cameron.
olivethegreatolivethegreat on July 5th, 2010 10:41 pm (UTC)
No, she doesn't have a secondary aspiration yet. But I've noticed that Knowledge sims seem to roll up a lot of wants for their kids as well.
Among the Chaos: Luke and Siennaeien_herrison on July 5th, 2010 10:43 pm (UTC)
My knowledge sims might be broken then :P I've had a couple of Romance sims who've shown more interest in their children than my Knowledge sims.
