The Danvers Twins Toddlerize
Another update about boring old prosperity and happiness!
With bonus sickeningly cute twin pictures!
Jan and Jen Danvers, the twin daughters of Jane Danvers and
Georgia Zoom Danvers, had a pretty idyllic babyhood, what with
four adults in the house, two of them stay-at-home Family
sims on pretty much full-time baby duty.
"What does zrbtt spell?"
Georgia got a job somewhere in here,
so she wasn't around quite as much as Jane (or John).
I'm sure I took some more
pictures of people playing with babies and stuff, but for some
reason all I can find in the relevant time span is pictures of
like all the adults having dinner. Heh.
After the requisite number of days of this, it was time
for the End of Babyhood Birthdays.
Jen (I think that's Jen) went first.
"Now we bwow out the candews!"
Georgia, natch, didn't bother to dress
for the occasion.
That's Justin in the near foreground (I think).
"And now we'eh a Big Giwl!"
I dunno why I picture Georgia
saying these things in such a silly voice.
Then Jan's turn.
Great expressions on both
mother and child faces.
Toddler Jan (or possibly Jen) doing a birdie imitation.
Hey, who ate all the candles?
(I generally try to have Jane take care of Jan,
and Georgia take care of Jen, because that's easier to remember with
"Jane" and "Jan" being so similar, and because I thought I might be
able to keep track of which twin was which that way.
But it didn't always work, and so this may well be Jen
rather than Jan, and vice-versa.
That's twins for ya.)
And now, the inevitable Invasion of the Cute Twin Toddlers
In the jungle, the mighty jungle...
I won't pretend to have a clue which is which in this one.
Wonder if they'll turn out to be "stay identical and confuse
everyone" twins or "be as different as possible to establish
individual identities" twins.
The Moms immediately set to work developing the tiny new
Cluttering up the hallway.
Georgia: "And then the teddy bear said...".
Jan (or Jen): "Not the teddy-bear story, pleeeez."
Everyone got along swimmingly.
Best Friends with Mom
I also want to get around to trying the
socialization trick; it'd be great fun to see Jan and Jen talking
about the weather and so on.
Here's John, taking a break from all the excitement.
Generally my Sims are so busy that birthday cakes go into the
But John got some of this one (Jan's or Jen's) before it went
Having the grandparents around is a great help (usually) in
Jean and John have been taking an active part, so
Georgia and Jane have been getting a reasonable amount
of sleep (unlike Kaylynn and Ben when Olivia and Zachary
were this age).

(I should really have Ransom and Marisa over to meet the
twins; only fair that both sets of grandparents should
get to see them.)
So that's the Danvers update for today; general domestic bliss...
... and so on.
The other major story in that house is that Jean has maximized
all her skills, but that wasn't her lifetime ambition;
what she really wants is to be a Criminal Mastermind.
Not too far a step from Mad Scientist, really; we expect
to see her in the underworld at any moment, and this
may involve still more pictures.
(Oh, and Justin's about due for teenhood, too; sheesh!)
