A little backstory: the evening of the day that Gina fulfilled her first Lifetime Want, a striking fellow named Dawson Day strolled onto her lot uninvited and introduced himself.
They became good friends but (unusually enough) nothing romantic had developed between them. In her mind Gina had vaguely reserved Dawson for her Mom (although nothing had developed there either). One night shortly before she was elected to the Hall of Fame, she invited Dawson over, and for whatever reason something clicked.
The day that she got her second lifetime want, filled with a new kind of euphoria, she invited him over again, and took him to bed with more in mind than friendly recreation.
Not long after, Gina was invited to a party at the "Bright" house at SSU.
At some point during the party, she found herself doubled over in the bathroom.
Later on out in the yard, thoroughgoing Family Sim Jane Stacks had some friendly advice.
(I was actually quite nervous at this point; when I had Allegra invite Gina to the party I'd forgotten all about that research into Sudden Pregnancy Death Syndrome that I'd done while Jane Danvers was pregnant with the twins, and how pregnant Sims aren't supposed to go out between conception and the first bump showing. As soon as this party was over and everyone'd left, I loaded up Gina's lot and played it until I knew what was going to happen one way or the other...)
So here's Gina later that night, having a comfortable soak and thinking about, well, about what Romance Sims are generally thinking about.
Fortunately it wasn't long until my doubts were somewhat resolved.
Gina spent her pregnancy quietly, reading in bed and meditating.
Jane Stacks stopped by, and was impressed by how well Gina was taking care of herself.
Gina also asked her Mom to come over, so she could tell her in person.
Another idyllic interlude.
And finally, as the time approached, she invited the father over.
After a little prenatal exercise, they settled down to a peaceful sleep (during which Gina's stupid cellphone went off I swear four times in a row when she was trying to get to sleep, and her energy was in the red and I was sure she was going to die). A few hours later, when the contractions woke her up, she was alone.
So Gina labored alone...
(Religious connotations entirely unintentional)
After a bit of writhing and shouting, Gina held up her new son.
Gabriel is also a striking-looking little person.
After all this, pretty much all of Gina's needs were pretty much down in the deep yellow. So she put Gabriel in his crib and dragged in the Orgasma-- I mean Energizer from the back yard (good thing that doesn't require any effort!).
Gabriel's first nap was spent in a crib sitting in the front hall, but clearly that wasn't going to work for long. The results of hammering and sawing and bricklaying and painting are in the next section...
When Gina first got pregnant I realized that everything was prepared and well thought out except that I had no place to put the kid's room. I was (and am) very fond of the layout of Gina's house, and I didn't know where I was going to put a new room without, say, blocking off some important windows of an existing one.
I eventually figured out a solution I was more or less happy with. Here's the interior shot:
And here's the aerial view of Gina's current house:
Gabriel's new room is in the upper left, and it does look a bit like it was grafted on as an afterthought I'm afraid. Just below that is the main cooking and dining and dancing area, which I expanded leftward by one quantum to make room for the nursery door. In the center is the main hall and study area. Top right is Gina's bedroom, with computer and lip-couch in the niche (and Thomas Cole's "Course of Empire: Desolation" on the wall; I had to crop it rather painfully to fit the frame and it ended up flipped left-to-right, but I'm pretty pleased with it anyway), and the bed and the guitar in the main space. Bottom right is the bathroom (with a bicolor floor for no particular reason). Outside are the hot tub, the energizer, and (probably too small to see) a little stereo for outside dancing.
(Gina herself is barely visible here in her everyday clothes making dinner; Gabriel is represented by about five visible pixels in the crib, as most of him is behind that bit of wall.)
So there you are! Another Raptor enters the world, and the third generation of Sims swells and prospers...
