What do you do when you are just married and allowed to touch each other for the first time? Ranfords did that. The whole day 6.

At one point their making out and baby makin' activities were RUDELY interrupted by cockroaches. That happens when you annoy people and they kick your trash can, Zachary. 
This screenshot also illustrates the state the lot was at this point. Its partly my fault, I had never played with reed spawner in residence lot, only in community ones. I had no idea how quickly they take over everything.

Anyway, back to baby makin'. ;) At early morning day 7 they were FINALLY lucky enough to hear a chime! 
Random townie judged them. 
(Phone in the background was deleted, I just needed it so Viola can call Lindsay and make their friendship stronger before going back to no electricity rule. Till Zach masters mechanical skills, Viola and Lindsay have next to no chance  to meet each other; I didn't want them to loose their friendship status. Who knows, Lindsay may be used as cult follower one day.)

Viola got fundie-approved makeover and started to harvest reeds. She wanted to clear all garden before baby is born.

There were other things needed for baby: a crib, first and foremost, and a changing table, and toys. Only one way to get these things: make them. Zach cried a bit before he gave in and started to learn how to make furniture. It will be long hours spent at basket weaving station till he reaches creativity level needed to make a baby basket.

He also had to chop and buck trees to build walls. Lifes hard! He hadn't even changed the clothes from wedding.

But it was worth it! I guess? Anyway, Zachary finished the bathroom walls, changed toilet to regular one and installed a sink. Then Viola came up with an idea to move the refrigerator (they use it to store food, but its not working, at least thats how I justify its existence), grill and stumps to make an improvised kitchen area. Cozy?

Of course, Viola did all the womans work at... house. Not much to do , when you only have one room, though.

FIRST BUMP!!!!!111!1!

snapshot_66c7f738_a6c936b2.jpg.ffd9656db508f34ef92d2845a9a15219.jpg

 

And Zach learned how to make a refrigerator from reeds! Well, its more like just a box, but Viola still thinks he is AWESOME! 
Nikes. 

snapshot_66c7f738_86c93967.jpg.68787690e937ba899383681bb5df2f09.jpg

 

Zach tried to learn fishing. He was #blessed to catch an old boot that cant be eaten, but can be used as amazing decor. Very traditional. 

snapshot_66c7f738_46c95255.jpg.400c70764ec8a910b2475a59adae339a.jpg

 

See? It looks good in their new living room! 
Viola kept sweet. 

snapshot_66c7f738_26c95d53.jpg.1e8ee311fa0a900ee63296d9419cd87b.jpg

 

And tried to fish for herself. 

snapshot_66c7f738_26c93805.jpg.9b8a4c98275608ffc4c49a61f5169a7e.jpg


Zachary at least got better at hunting (sorry, Rufus). And he was still making furniture. So Viola just focused on her duties: reed harvesting,cooking, and birthing.

snapshot_66c7f738_06c936d6.jpg.46fa4cfb1daba66bbcb63622ff7b9f26.jpg

 

And she succeeded! It was hard, and took 3,5 days, but she removed every single reed from the lot, and the damn spawner as well. Phew! 

It was also the first day of Autumn. A new season of year. It would be so neat to start for a new season of life right now, Viola though while picking nuts and berries in forest. 

snapshot_66c7f738_26c95eb5.jpg.2106f12a2726c66f008333910ceec3ba.jpg

 

And she was indeed blessed when her wish came true. Who needs homebirth, if you can forestbirth? 

Zach was, as usually, pretty useless.

snapshot_66c7f738_c6c95f31.jpg.b115580e72285b4b5cb069a00b1a4f1c.jpg

 

Viola gave birth to a healthy baby boy. She considered the name Forest, but ultimately decided to leave it for one of the future blessings. This baby was named Reed.

This is Zach. Celebrating. You know, first born son makes him all adult and manly.  

snapshot_66c7f738_66c96020.jpg.d593c949ac096bbd0e295a0270162db2.jpg

 

Oh, and Zach managed to make a baby basket. It was too cold to keep baby outside, so they put him in only room with a roof. 
You know, bathroom.

Welcome to the world, Reed Ranford. Im sorry, kiddo.

I love that they named the baby Reed!

Is all the Medieval stuff from a mod? You have all this cool stuff I've never seen. Including the tire swing! Baby's outfit is adorable, too.

Most of these things are crafting stations from Sun&Moon's Star Factory  here: http://www.medievalsims.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=240. They are not really mods, but they add so much to the game. Ranfords use the Giving Tree, Wild Mushrooms, Wild Berry Bushes, Wild Hives, Basket Weaver and A Game's Afoot (for hunting). The site has other cool stuff like HUGE collection of plants, spices, pigs, chickens, cows (!), Miners' rocks, and even that thing that allows sims to carve their own Halloween pumpkins. Theoretically for playing medieval neighborhoods, but everything they have works for modern settings as well. 
The tire swing can be found here and is truly genial: http://modthesims.info/d/268218
The baby outfit is a default replacement found here: http://modthesims.info/d/392728. There is a mod that allows players to change baby outfits, but it seemed too complicated to me. 

(I started to type this response more than hour ago, but someone sat next to me on a bus, so I put down my computer and pretended not to exist.)

      @neurogirl you're welcome! I am happy to hear we are not alone. I often question if we are just weird (I know we are happy, but you know just that "are we a little too strange" thought) for not having sex so often. Thank you for the confidence boost ❤️

      I found this opinion piece from 2012 awhile back, and it seems applicable now. (It's the New York Times, so it might be behind a paywall.)

      Men, Who Needs Them?

      He isn't so much anti-father as he is making a point. 

      Anyway, :my_tongue: to Lori and her fangirls and boys.

      That is a great article.  I love all the butthurt dudes in the comments.  While it contains a lot of science, it's an opinion piece!

      I open most of the jars in our house. I played piano for years and have a better grip.  I'm also more mechanical and enjoy fixing things. I built and installed custom shelving wall to wall in our home office.

      None of that makes me love or respect my husband less (or more!) I have a relationship with him that will last whatever roles we fill as we navigate life because we decide things together in the ways that work best for both of us.

      And despite what Lori thinks of the world -there are many many divorced, single, widowed women doing  - everything -  on our own.   We don't have a team, but we manage.  I think most women would/do. Lori isn't capable and couldn't, and just like her 'I never wanted to work so every female who wants to or does, is wrong and hates God' mindset,  she can't understand that there is a real world where daddy and hubby weren't there to support us all our lives.  She just really  -can't - she can only think we hate God so we deserve what we get.   She, of course, is above all that and always will be, unfortunately.    

       

      Right!  I'm happily divorced, not looking to couple up again, and capable of doing anything the average man can do in my home.  And if I can't I know who to call (i.e., plumber).  Believe it or not, Lori, brawn is not an essential trait for running a home.  It might help sometimes, but it is absolutely not needed.  I'm a petite woman and I assembled absolutely all of my furniture in my house myself.  *Gasp*

      P.S. Unfortunately I am waiting until a friend visits before I can get some heavy lifting done in my closet!  Fortunately it's not a priority.

      My two year and one year anniversaries of my two babies are this week. I found out they died on Aug 25, 2017 and Aug 24, 2018. They were born August 29, 2017 and August 31, 2018. And I just had my new baby on July 2. When I was pregnant, Every day I woke up, I was certain that it was going to be the day she died. Even on the day of her birth, I was convinced she would die in the middle of the CSection. I legitimately have PTSD from my obstetrical experiences from the last two years.

      One thing I try to remind myself is that protecting myself is my job. I can’t go to baby showers anymore and likely never will again. I had to “mute” friends on social media when their pregnancies got to a certain point. Other women aren’t being cruel or hurtful by being pregnant or discussing their experiences. They’re just unaware of the pain that accompanies pregnancy and infant loss.
