This generation is going to be the sim!death of me, guys. The kids are all cute and likeable. How I'm going to choose an heir is beyond me! But I'm getting ahead of myself. Have an update:
We open with Fiyero's latest work outfit. It's an interesting look for him, I suppose...
As a reminder, Vittorio is pregnant one last time, in the hope of a girl this generation.
Elizabeth learns just why it's not the best idea to toss a toddler above your head just after feeding him.
Let's take a closer look at her I Just Got Vomited On face, shall we?
It's a very vomit-heavy update, I'm afraid. This time it's a case of Gaius playing on the merry-go-round for way too long.
Dude, he's your son. If you think he's stinky, change his nappy.
...Or wait until his birthday so you can potty train him!
I'm not sure about that haircut, Griff.
That's much better. It turns out that he's actually a total cutie!

It's Germanicus's birthday as well.
He's a little awkward looking, but hopefully it's just a phase.
I love it when Sims autonomously talk to the baby in another Sim's stomach.
Elizabeth continues to be an amazing grandmother. I'll never cease to be amazed at her amazing turnaround as soon as she settled down.
Gaius is chill about the fact that he's not topping the class.
Germanicus, however, just can't handle the shame of a C.
He and his brother are great friends, though, and often spend time together.
It's just a pity that they choose to spend that time playing ball in the family grave yard.
GAIUS: Hey, dad! You're so fat you look like a sumo wrestler!
GERMANICUS: I think he looks more like a ball. A giant, round ball.
Watch out for the pregnancy hormones, kids.
Meanwhile, over near the stereo, Griff continues to be supercute.
For some reason, a heavily-pregnant Vittorio decides that he has a sudden urge to gain a robot making badge. Most people just crave pickles and icecream.
At first glance, this looks like an adorable shot of Fiyero, which is why I saved it. When you look at it for a while, however, it's like his head has detached from his body and is floating towards you.
If I have nightmares tonight, I'm totally suing Maxis.
It's finally baby time.
Bathroom births don't leave a lot of room for bystanders, so everyone has to crowd into the doorway.
And it's a girl! Her name is Grace, and she has Vittorio's blond hair and both fathers' brown eyes and tan skin.
...and it's also a boy. This, folks, is what happens when you say "I'll just have one more baby, to see if I can get a girl." TWINS. EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Oh well. His name is Guillaume, and he has the same genetics as his twin sister.
Elizabeth totally plays favourites with Griff. You wouldn't know that there are five kids in the family from the amount of time she spends with him.
And the first A+ of the generation goes to Gaius Lawson.
His prize is a parent who actually cares about his children's grades.
You're meant to be a gardener. That is a baby, not a tulip.
I think she's looking for the comics page.
I was about to ask what Elizabeth ever did to him, but then I remembered this. Fair enough, kid.
Brotherly water fights.
Please don't wee on the baby, Rose.
The ghosts seem to be particularly fond of scaring Fiyero.
The family that smustles together stays together.
Eponine pops by, so that we can see her adult-aged pretty face one last time before she ages to an elder.
Germanicus finally gets that A+ he's been hoping for.
And it's time for the twins to become toddlers.
Sparkly flying baby number one!
Wow, Vittorio's nose does not look good on a toddler.
She's pretty awkward looking in several ways, actually. That giant chin is the biggest worry, I think.

Eponine is really getting into the birthday spirit.
Sparkly flying baby number two!
I see you're a little follicularly challenged there, Guillaume.
After a quick makeover, he's rather adorable.

And, because my game is nice enough not to make me look after three toddlers at once, it's Griffith's birthday as well.
Take one last look at that cute toddler face...
...and then look at that even cuter child face! Nicely aged, Griff. I approve.
The twins are superclose, which I appreciate. So often, my twins just act like normal siblings.
A random shot of Elizabeth's loveliness, because there are two more birthdays still to come this update.
I'm missing my dog now that I've moved, so I decided the Lawsons should add a dog to the family. Given that Fyodor doesn't have any pets, I presume he's picking out a dog collar for himself.
Flavius was also at the pet shop. Mostly just looking pretty.
Meet the new addition to the family! His name is Bones, and he's a Weimaraner.
The first thing he did when he arrived at the legacy house was shred one of the kids' homework. Good dog, Bones!
It had to happen :( Elizabeth got old.
Age really suits her, though. She has such a calm gentle look to her that goes well with her mad grandmothering skills.
And it's the final birthday for the update. I said there were a lot!
It's time for Gaius to hit his teenage years. Stay cute, Gaius!
Yup, that'll do it. No complaints here.
