Avery Legacy - Chapter 91 - A New Life

@ 2002 Opposite Way: Corey Byall (popularity), wife Faith (romance), daughter Grace.

Faith seems to have come down with something. She already feels like a completely incompetent mother and now this. At first she thought she might be pregnant again. She was actually happy to find out that it was just a stomach virus. The doctor gave her antibiotics so hopefully she'll be feeling better soon.

With Faith still feeling under the weather, Corey has a private birthday celebration for his daughter. Grace is a Libra with 1 neat, 8 outgoing, 5 active, 2 playful & 10 nice.

Faith starts feeling better. She tries to help Corey with the parenting. She really is trying but she's just not got the natural instincts for it. She is starting to feel like a complete failure.

After getting Grace to sleep, Corey cheers his wife up in the hot tub. Kendal picks that same moment to make her first ghostly appearance.

Yes the ghost activity is up at the Byall house. Maybe Corey should just quietly clean his daughter up so that he doesn't have to explain to Faith exactly what she's been splashing in.

After feeling fine for a few weeks, Faith is once again sick. What could be wrong with her now?

Faith was very upset to find out that she was pregnant again. No one told her that the antibiotics would render her birth control pills useless. Why is this happening to her? Is she being punished. She is a terrible mom. Why would the fates give HER another child?

Of course Corey was absolutely thrilled to find out that he was going to be a dad again. He honestly never expected to become a father after falling in love with Faith. She just didn't seem the mothering type. He thinks she does a wonderful job now but can't convince her of it. Grace adores her mom. If only Faith could see that.

Faith still thinks she's lousy at parenting but she has come to terms with being pregnant again. She has actually come to want this child. She is almost looking forward to having another baby in the house.

Grace is now a child. She'll be starting school soon.

Early one morning, Faith goes into labor. She gives birth to a baby boy with his father's blond hair and green eyes.

Corey couldn't believe he had a son. He named his little boy Royce. It was actually Faith's idea but he really liked it.

It's funny but Faith felt like she was doing a much better job with Royce. She actually started wanting to have another child. She knew that she would soon be to old for more kids. It was now or never. She approached her husband about the subject. Corey was caught off guard by this. Both of their children had been happy accidents. He considered them a blessing. Now Faith was willing to actually try for one more. He had no idea what he had done to deserve this. He happily agreed to try. He would like nothing more than a third child in the house.

Royce had a birthday and is now a toddler. He's a Sagittarius with 7 neat, 0 outgoing, 10 active, 9 playful & 6 nice.

Faith didn't have any trouble getting pregnant for the third time. Since this was the last time she tried to enjoy the experience. Corey was constantly telling her how beautiful she was. Sometimes she thought he must be joking. How could he find her sexy with her big fat tummy and duck waddle? But Corey wasn't joking. He had never been more attracted to her. He spent as much time as possible proving it to her.

Just after midnight, Faith went into labor. Despite her age, she gave birth to her third child without any difficulty.

As Faith looked down at her daughter all she could see was love. That then became her name, Love Byall.

Corey thought that Love was named quite appropriately. He had never been happier than he was now. He would forever love his wife for what she had given him. Love meant more to him than anything because Faith had willingly gotten pregnant with her. He would love and cherish this woman until the day he died.

Time flies when you're happy and in love. Before Corey was ready it was time for more birthdays. Royce is now a child and will be starting school soon.

Love is now a toddler. She is an Aquarius with 2 neat, 3 outgoing, 5 active, 9 playful & 10 nice. Faith has gained more confidence in her mothering abilities. She plans on helping with the hard stuff this time around. Corey just smiled when she announced that she would be teaching Love to talk. The smile stayed in place as he watched quietly from the doorway.

Also celebrating a birthday was Grace who is now a teen. She wants to learn everything and become a scientist someday. So apparently she got right to it instead of taking a birthday shot. I'll have to sneak one in somewhere eventually.

Notes: First, food poisoning has become a problem for me lately. I need to be more careful. Second, Faith had the want to have a baby with both of her last two pregnancies. I think I've really confused her. I made her a roaring romance sim and then made her go cold turkey. Now she wants kids and actually finally has wants regarding her kids. She hasn't wanted to flirt with anyone but her husband in quite a while. The only romance sim want that she has kept is to make out with 20 people. Otherwise, you'd swear she's a family sim.

Cute family. :) And I love the name Royce. Of course, I should since I married a guy named Royce. :D

I'm glad Faith has come around. I think she'll find in the long run that having a good family is better than lots of woohoo partners ;o)

I'm glad to see that Faith has discovered a little bit of the "motherhood calling" ... and doesn't regret any of her kiddies.

And she seems to be sticking to being on the straight and narrow. I hope it lasts!

Oh, I especially love the Faith chapters! It's great that she's become more motherly, but I kinda' miss her typical romance sim days. Any chance of a combination of the two? *lol*

Well Q, anything is possible. With Faith only one day from becoming an elder, a possible crisis could be on the horizon. We'll just have to wait and see. But rest assured, even if she manages to stay on the straight and narrow, someone else in the family is bound to fall off the faithful wagon. (rubs hands together with evil grin on face)
