Welcome back to Range Valley, population 5,985.
I knew Phoebe was pregnant when we last left off, but I didn’t realise just how pregnant she was. She goes into labour as soon as I load into the lot.
She gives birth to their second son, a boy named Nicolas.
We need to clear some space for the baby, so Mateo heads inside to teach Genoveva to talk, so she can age up.
Genoveva is a pretty cute kid. I’m also realising that I don’t have enough cute clothes for kids, so there’s another CC spree in my future.
Phoebe finally gets to go to work! Mateo is working towards being Hand of Poseidon, so his working schedule takes priority over hers. Which means that Range Valley’s mayor rarely shows up to work. No wonder our infrastructure is crumbling.
Eliseo is a popular kid, and brings home Kerie Masters!
So Kerie gets to join us for Nico’s birthday!
Nico is just too friggen cute. He has Phoebe’s alien ears!
He really is too cute in his little monster PJs.
Then, disaster. The tree outside caught fire, and the rain promptly stopped. Mateo and Phoebe went out to extinguish it, but…
Mateo caught fire.
Interestingly, being on fire kills things. Weird, right?
Thankfully, Phoebe manages to bring Mateo back. In exchange for “a favour”? Whatever the hell that means.
“That’s between me and Grim.”
I was so thankful that worked. Mateo is way too cute to die this early. And Phoebe had such bad luck as a young woman, I would hate for her to lose him.
The whole ordeal stressed Eliseo out pretty badly (fear of fire), and he had some serious skilling to do the next day for his birthday preparations.
Eliseo is a Family sim, who wants to become Captain Hero.
Phoebe teaches Nico to walk, and it’s his turn for a birthday.
Nico remains hella cute. He looks a lot like his dad, but with the super cute ears.
Nico gets to studying. He feels like a bookworm, and I see university in his future.
He also loves to greet Mateo when he gets back from work. Mateo is slowly climbing the ranks of the Oceanography career, but it’s taking time.
Phoebe and Mateo have autonomously tried for a baby a couple of times, but no luck so far. We’ll see about next round.
We leave the Ramirez family for now, and will catch up with them in rotation 11.
