Lol, guess the aliens heard the word that Andrew is a near perfect husband and had to investigate. Aster is so cute, I love him helping Mama in the garden. Does he have green eyes? It kinda looks like it but I can't really tell. And yay, another nooboo. Crossing fingers for a girl.

Such a perfectly timed shot of Aster leaping out of his bassinet.
Love his coloring, too. He's so beautiful!
After Andrew's first abduction, Shari is playing with Aster and she says: Mommy's boy is sooo big!
I was half expecting the next shot to show Andrew with a baby bump and Shari saying: Mommy's other boy is sooo big!
How crazy that Andrew got abducted twice within such a short period. Senior Pollinator Technician #3 must really like him, haha.
Gratz on completing two collections and The Curator plus memorializing each other!
Such a fun update but the suspense is going to kill me now! Hahaha
The really crazy thing is that Andrew only knows one alien.  They were out and about one day, and I was watching Shari, not Andrew.  The next thing I know, some guy is doing the "detect personality" social on Andrew.  I wasn't quick enough to get a picture, and I promptly forgot about it until the abductions started.  If I'd been trying to get Andrew abducted, it never would have happened!

Is it wrong that I kept looking at Andrew's belly in every shot after the abduction?  Can't wait to see how Shari will respond if her man has gone and gotten himself pregnant with an alien baby!
And yes, the Aster flipping shot is outstanding!
It's a perfectly natural reaction to stare at a male Sim's belly after an abduction.   :)   I would have ended the update with the first abduction, but then they came for Andrew a second time...

Lol, guess the aliens heard the word that Andrew is a near perfect husband and had to investigate. Aster is so cute, I love him helping Mama in the garden. Does he have green eyes? It kinda looks like it but I can't really tell. And yay, another nooboo. Crossing fingers for a girl.
Yes, Aster's eyes are green.  And I agree with you about Andrew.

Loved all things about that update. Andrew and Shari are just too fantastic together. Little Aster is adorable. Ooo, will thete be an alien nooboo? Can't wait to see!
Thanks!  Your curiosity will be satisfied soon!

Aster is so cute.
Congratulations on completing your aspiration, and i also think the next will be completed instantly.
Thanks!  The Curator and Freelance Botanist are two of my favorite aspirations.

Birthdays and Surprises

Shari:  And then it just flew awayÖand all Andrew remembers is the white light!
Evelyn:  But Shari, are you sure?  Maybe you were just seeing the light from the lighthouse.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  I know it sounds crazy, Evelyn, but thereís more.  Ever since that night, Andrew has had a weird stomachache, and sometimes his belly sparkles!
Evelyn: What exactly do you mean by sparkles?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari: And heís been gaining weight, and Iíve even seen his belly glow!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Evelyn:  Oh! If heís put on a few pounds, thatís just sympathy weight.  Sometimes that happens when a manís wife is pregnant.

Shari:  But how do you explain the sparkles and the glowing?
Evelyn:  Donít take this the wrong way, dear, but youíre a writer and Andrew is a bookworm.  Is it possible you two are letting your imaginations run wild?
Shari: Thatís why I want you to come over and see for yourself.  Will you watch Andrew closely when you come for Asterís birthday party?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]


Andrew:  What did Evelyn say, Shari?
Shari:  She thinks you are gaining sympathy weight.
Andrew: Does sympathy weight kick you in the gut?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  If you get the green sparkles tomorrow, try to show Evelyn.
Andrew:  Iíll try.  Speaking of which, are we ready for Asterís birthday?  Do you think heíll get the Top Notch Toddler trait?
Shari:  Iím sure he will.  He maxed his movement and thinking skills ages ago, and that Nanny we hired helped him with his communication.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Iím sure Iíve read him enough books to fully develop his imagination.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  Excuse me, dear, but the baby is coming NOW!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew: Sheís beautiful, Shari.  What shall we name her?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari: What do you think of the name Daisy?
Andrew: I love it!  I think Iíll play my two girls a song.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]


 The next dayÖ

Andrew:  Well, that birthday party wasÖokay?
Shari:  Yes.  It wasnít a complete disaster, but we only earned a silver medal.
Andrew:  What do you think went wrong?
Shari:  It was Jamar.  He kept taking slices of cake before I could put the birthday candles on.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  By the time Aster finally got to blow out his candles, the party was almost over.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  A silver medal is okay.  The important thing is that Aster had a good time.
Shari:  Thatís true.  Heís such a handsome fellow, and heís an art-lover.  He must get that from you.
Andrew:  And he wants to be a Whiz Kid.  He must get that from you.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  Did Evelyn get a chance to see your belly glow during the party, Andrew?
Andrew:  No, it didnít happen until after she left.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]


Andrew:  I think itís a boy!
Shari:  A boy who is definitely NOT a figment of our imagination.
Andrew:  Letís name him Fig!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  Well, Evelyn, what do you think?
Evelyn: Oh Shari!  Iím so sorry that I ever doubted you!  Itís justÖ
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  Thereís no need to apologize.  I donít think I would have believed me either.  The question is, how do we explain it?   I donít trust everyone to be as understanding as you.
Evelyn:  Thank you for trusting me.  And I agree.  Not everyone will be open-minded.  Seeing the two of them together, they donít look all that different except for skin color.  Do you think you could pass Daisy and Fig off as twins?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Shari:  Maybe.  They were born about two days apart.  Do you think it will be noticeable?
Evelyn:  Only on their actual birthdays.  You could try waiting to age Daisy up until the last possible moment, and do the opposite with Fig.  Age him up as soon as itís his birthday. 
Shari:  I see what you are saying.  So it would take two birthdays to get them aligned.  Do you think that would work?
Evelyn:  Itís worth a try.  And if not, you can always say Fig is adopted.
Shari:  I thought of that, but he looks so much like Andrew to me that Iíd prefer to think of them as twins.
Evelyn:  Theyíll certainly be raised as twins.  It doesnít matter how they got here.
Shari:  Thank you Evelyn.  That means a lot.

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  Hey there, little guy.  You and I both came here under unique circumstances.  We have that in common.  I may not fully understand how or why you are here, but I know Iíll do everything in my power to protect you.  You can count on that.

I laughed at your comment about Andrew not having gotten abducted if you'd been trying. Ain't that the truth? Haha.
Oddly, your Sharebears are the only ones living the pre-modern, pre-industrialized life yet they're the ones to have the first Close Encounter among all of us!!!
And Shari and her watcher are so very clever!  Coordinating Daisy and Fig's birthdays until they're like twins!
Plus, I love Fig's name! It's perfect (like Andrew)!!!! I'm glad that Andrew seems to have recovered fully in mind and body from the abduction and pregnancy.

(I'm trying put a stop to my comment but just one more thing....) Evelyn is a great friend! Loved this update!

Aww, that bit with Fig is so cute. At least he'll be able to transform as a toddler and blend in a bit. Yay, Shari had a girl! Welcome, Daisy. Aster is a cutie. Still loving Evelyn.

Fig the figment of their imagination.   Brilliant! 
I love how the neighbors are used to add social perspective to the storytelling.  Very cool application of a narrative device.
I can't wait to see the "twins" grow into toddlers and then children  :=)  Of course, I'm also curious to see if you'll go with the disguise for Fig or just have him as the unusual blue kid.

Oh, not so twins. Can't wait to see them as toddlers.
And wasn't Andrew unflirty? How did he seduced an alien so easily?

Aster grew up well, too bad his birthday wasn't as great as you wanted it.
Also, I like all the names.

Thanks!  I'm really surprised that Andrew is the first (and so far only) one to have an alien baby out of all the Sharebears.  Fig can't be the heir because he isn't genetically related to the Founder, but it's still cool.  I wasn't sure if my plan to bring Daisy and Fig's birthdays together would work, but it did. 

Aww, that bit with Fig is so cute. At least he'll be able to transform as a toddler and blend in a bit. Yay, Shari had a girl! Welcome, Daisy. Aster is a cutie. Still loving Evelyn.
I'm glad Shari had a girl, too.  We've got a nice mix of girls and boys now.  You'll get to see Fig in both forms in the next update.

Parents and Guardians

Andrew:  Did Daisy go back to sleep after you aged her up, Shari?
Shari:  Yes, she seems to like the toddler bed.  I hated to wake her, but in order to follow Evelynís very wise plan, I had to wait as long as possible to age Daisy upówhich happened to be at 3am.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew: Right.  So when we get Figís birthday notice tomorrow morning, we will age him up immediately, correct?
Shari:  Yes. That should reduce their age-gap from two days down to one. Then we repeat the process for their child birthdays which should make Daisy and Fig the same age.
          Not to change the subject, but did I see that you maxed the handiness skill while I was in the other room?
Andrew: Yeah. I was finally upgrading the fireplace before we have two toddlers in the house.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  I should congratulate you, too, Shari.  Didnít you complete the Freelance Botanist Aspiration?
Shari:  Yes, but I couldnít have done it without Bluebell.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Andrew:  What aspiration did you choose next?
Shari: Bestselling Author.  Can you believe I havenít done that one yet?

The next morning

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  I aged Fig up this morning, but thereís something I need to talk to you about, Shari. 
Shari:  What is it, dear?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  When I checked his relationship panel, Figís mother was labelled as ďSenior Pollination Technician #3.Ē
Shari:  I noticed that, too.  But donít worry, my love. I have already adopted Fig as a care dependent.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Thatís wonderful, Shari, but thatís not exactly whatís bothering me.  You see, I canít explain why an alien woman is listed as Figís mother.  I honestly donít remember anything from that night except the light.
Shari:  Oh Andrew!  Donít trouble yourself about that!  Neither of us knows how Fig got into your belly, but I can only assume that alien methods are different than ours.  Are you forgetting that I, myself, am a clone of someone else?
Andrew:  Do you think Fig is a clone of me?
Shari:  Not exactly a clone.  Fig is obviously an alien, but I think there is more of you in him than Senior Pollination Technician #3. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  You are amazing, Shari.  I was afraid you might be jealous.
Shari:  The world is a strange place, Andrew.  You believed my story, and I believe yours.  Letís not trouble ourselves about things we will never be able to explain. 
Andrew:  Are you at all worried about what other people might think?
Shari:  Not really.  No one who sees Fig and Daisy together will doubt that they are ours. 
Andrew:  Thatís true.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Will you read me this book, Mama?
Shari:  The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates.
Aster:  Thatís the title?  Oooóthis is going to be good!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Shari:  If the whole book is as wordy as the title, weíll have your two hours of reading done before we finish Chapter 1!

Aster: Will you read me more of Robinson Crusoe after I finish my homework, Mama?
Shari:  When youíve done your homework and extra credit, then weíll read.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Not that I mind (much) Shari, but didnít we agree not to hire the Nanny when one of us is home?
Shari:  I didnít hire him!  He just showed up, but Fig seems to like him.  I didnít have the heart to ask him to leave.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Andrew: *dismisses the Nanny*

Andrew:  And the Mama bear and the Papa bear and the three baby bears all lived happily ever after.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster: So thatís why Mama told me to make my Emotion Potions in the cellar!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Good job earning an A in school, son.  Youíve completed Whiz Kid.  Now you get to choose your next Aspiration.
Aster:  I want to do Artistic Prodigy!  Will you mentor me when I do my 5 hours of playing an instrument, Papa?
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Andrew:  Of course!  I crafted a childís violin just for you. 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Aster:  Howís this Papa?  Am I doing it right?
Andrew:  AhÖwellÖeveryone starts as a beginner, son.  *puts cotton in ears* 
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

5 hours later

Andrew:  Thatís it!  Feel the music!  Be one with the violin!
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  Aster is really starting to sound good.  He must have an excellent teacher.
Andrew:  You flatter me.  But I did complete Musical Genius while I was mentoring him.
Shari: Thatís wonderful!  Have you thought about what youíd like to do next?
Andrew:  Iíd like to do Big Happy Family.  It wasnít in the original plan, but now that we have three children, I think it makes sense.
Shari:  I agree.  And I think you should drink a Potion of Youth to make sure you live long enough to be friends with four grandchildren.
Andrew:  I will only take it if you drink one, too, Shari.  And could you please dismiss the Nanny?  Heís making me uncomfortable.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Shari:  Well, we did it.  How do you feel, Andrew?
Andrew:  Much better now that the Nanny is gone.
Shari:  Thatís not what I meant.  And donít look behind you.
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

The next day

Shari:  Look whoís here, Andrew.  Heís been here all day, and he says we donít even have to pay him! *gives Andrew a meaningful look*
 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Andrew: Oh!  MrÖuhÖNanny.  Thank you for stopping by, but weíre taking the kids to the park this afternoon soÖ
Nanny:  I could accompany y-
Andrew: No!

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Shari:  Thatís one way to get rid of the Nanny.  I suppose Aster does need to make friends now that heís working on Social Butterfly.
Andrew:  Youíre welcome.

Loved the shots of Andrew with Fig, who looks so much like his father in his human disguise!
I love how laid back Shari feels about Senior Pollinator Technician #3 appearing in Fig's relationship panel.
Andrew is brave to raise such a possibly sensitive topic!

How absolutely weird about that nanny, though. And funny (in a rather cute way) how adamant Andrew feels about raising the children themselves.
Congrats on progress with Freelance Botanist, Musical Genius, and Whiz Kid!

Hmmm, I think the nanny is just smitten with our dear Shari  ;=)
The darling founding couple is so lovely together and the kids are lovely and the historical story world is just lovely and I seem to find myself smiling every time I finish one of your updates.  Kudos!
