~ Friday ~
Dina gives birth to a boy. Welcome to the family, Wade!
Birthday cards are sent to Chantel and Dominic.
Issac and Chantel get engaged. What a beautiful birthday present!
Khiara and Bellamy are both under the weather with the flu.
Hopefully they start feeling better soon!
Khiara tries to go about her day as usual, thinking that mind will win out over matter, but her body seems to disagree.
Perhaps a nap will help. Van decides to read somewhere else so she can get the rest she obviously needs.
Khiara wakes up feeling refreshed and continues studying the medical journal she brought home from work.
Once done, Khiara thinks a little strategic planning might help with her next promotion and heads over to the chess table to see if she can come up with some new moves.
After a few hours, some “new moves” cause her to shift focus away from work and onto another topic entirely.
She can’t wait to tell Van!
~ Saturday ~
Chantel and Issac marry. Congratulations!
Britta gives birth to a girl. Welcome to the family, Layla!
Birthday cards are sent to Kody and Keli.
April and Dameon begin dating.
A new year is almost here. This makes it a day of reflecting the past year and looking forward to the beginning of the next one.
Speaking of looking forward …
Khiara has news to share with Van.
“I’m sorry to interrupt your work, but I have something to tell you. Things are going to change around here … in a good way. I’m pregnant!”
“That’s fantastic news, Khiara! You are going to be a wonderful mother! How do you feel? Do you need anything?”
Khiara assures Van that she is feeling fine, but he encourages her to rest as he and the twins take over the chores she normally performs.
Everyone is looking forward to meeting the newest member of the Snyder family!
~ Sunday, 1st Day of Spring ~
April and Dameon get engaged.
Dawn gives birth to a girl. Welcome to the family, Dora!
Britta and Berjes begin dating.
Keli and Winston Liles begin dating.
Bridgette gives birth to a boy. Welcome to the family, Aren!
Beatrice announces that she is pregnant with her 1st child!
Ian and Candy Newbie begin dating.
Birthday cards are sent to Michale and Sergio.
Another quiet day at the Snyder house.
Van is working from home, trying to finish a few projects so that he can focus on the baby when he or she arrives.
Bell is out shopping with friends, hoping to find something for the nursery.
Ben invites Braden over to watch the game and is thanked for making him feel at home.
Lest you think Khiara is forgotten, she has spent the day resting and trying to ease her aching back. Nothing seems to be soothing that particular ache so she heads over to the spa for a deep tissue massage.
As soon as she arrives, thoughts of massages fly out of her mind as her water breaks and she enters labor.
Khiara calls Van and he quickly arrives to take her to the hospital. Although, perhaps keeping her company is more appropriate since Khiara slides behind the wheel.
“Luther, stop freaking out and let us pass. That isn’t going to accomplish anything or change the fact that my wife is about to give birth.”
Oh, dear. Dominic is having another medical emergency, but Khiara isn’t able to stop and assist him at this time because her baby’s pending birth takes precedence.
Addy’s Note: I didn’t realize that a Sim needed help until after she arrived at the hospital and a message pops up stating that “Khiara failed to help Dominic. The medical community won’t like this at all.” As a result, her work performance took a hit. Nobody said SimLife is fair!
Khiara won’t let that stop her from enjoying the moment she first lays eyes upon their child.
Van is over the moon with joy as he looks at his lovely lady and their beautiful baby boy.
Welcome home, little one.
