Sims 3 The Wards (part 9)
Sephora continues working on her first ice sculpture. As she’s working, Miles’ boss Juan shows up at the house. He is amazed by Sephora’s talent.
Miles comes out to greet his boss. He is surprised that Juan has stopped by.
Miles and Juan have an awkward moment when Juan walks in on Miles while he’s on the toilet. Juan walks out amused at Miles’ embarrassment.
Juan finishes in the bathroom and joins Juan in the living room. Juan is in the process of playing his guitar and Miles watches hoping to pick up a few pointers.
Miles takes an opportunity to talk to Juan about some new music that he’s picked up at the bookstore.
Outside, Sephora feels the baby kick. She stops working, realizing that she hasn’t eaten anything.
Miles complains to Juan about him walking in on Miles while he was on the toilet. Juan is amused by the whole conversation.
Miles proceeds to mooch a few dollars from Juan as a gift for the baby.
Juan gives it to him and congratulates Miles.
Miles thanks Juan just before Juan leaves to perform a gig at the theater.
Miles & Sephora turn in for the evening. While they are sleeping, Sephora begins to feel contractions.
Sephora gets out of bed, shocked at the level of pain she’s in.
Miles hears her cries and wakes up to see if there is anything he can do for her.
Sephora wants to deliver her baby naturally at home. Miles panics at the idea of Sephora delivering without medical care.
Miles remembers the dream that he had of Sephora delivering the baby in pain. This is almost like reliving it again. He feels helpless to help her.
Sephora practices her breathing exercises and focuses on the view outside her window.
An immense contraction hits and Sephora begins to have second thoughts about a natural home birth.
Sephora counts and breathes, doing her best to make it through the pain.
Sephora is between contractions and Miles appears as if he is the one having a baby.
Another large contraction hits and Miles tells Sephora that he is going to take her to the hospital. Sephora agrees to go.
Sephora gets dressed and starts to walk out of the door with Miles. Then she changes her mind. “I can do this,” she tries to assure Miles, “I just need you to calm down.”
Sephora instructs Miles to sit on the couch and coach her with her breathing.
Just when Sephora thinks that she may have made a mistake by not going to the hospital…
…their daughter is born.
Sephora inspects her daughter and breathes a sigh of relief when she notes how healthy she is. Zawadi Ward is born with the loves the outdoor and eccentric trait.
Miles looks at his wife with respect and admiration. He cannot believe the pain that Sephora was able to endure.
Sephora is thrilled to have delivered a healthy baby girl and is even more grateful that Miles was right there with her.
Sephora gently lays Zawadi down in her crib. Until they can afford to build onto the house, Zawadi will have to share a room with her parents.
Miles joins Sephora & Zawadi in the bedroom. He is happy to be here with Sephora, but deep down he knows that his feelings about children has not changed. He loves his daughter, but has no desire to hold, feed or touch her.
Miles is determined to do his best to be a good father. He is willing to put his feelings about children to the side and give his daughter what she needs to grow up healthy and happy.
Sephora & Miles stare at baby Zawadi for a while, both ashamed that they almost let this beautiful little girl drive them apart. She is a gift, just as her name says she is.
Sephora decides to get as much sleep as she can while Zawadi is resting peacefully.
Miles join her.
Miles drifts to sleep with thoughts of his new baby girl on his mind; deep down slightly afraid of what the future will hold.
