Happy Birthday, January 2023

Brady Cooper will turn 4 this year and he's already anxious to start pre-school.

Brady's cousin Lucas Greene-Cooper will also start pre-school this year.

Jeremy Hayes will turn 12 this year and he's definitely not too bothered about high school. He just wants to be the centre of attention at parties although his parents might not approve his future plans.

Ross Cooper has much firmer plans for his future. He wants to be the director of the country's intelligence agency some day.

Ross's twin sister Madelyn is just as ambitious as her brother. She wants to win the Nobel Science Prize one day.

Against all odds Finn Harris is about to start his Freshman year at Brixton University. He applied to college so late that he hasn't given any thought to what major he's going to choose. Finn is just happy to finally live with his girlfriend Dawn and their 3-year-old daughter Shea.

Lilly Fielding on the other hand knows exactly what she wants to study. Her major is Education with a minor in Literature.

Lilly's boyfriend Josh Cooper is really into arts so he's majoring in Art with a focus on Photography.

Stephen Marlowe has graduated with excellent grades.

He has a degree in Psychology with a 3.7 GPA. His father and siblings are extremely proud of him.

Stephen doesn't want to live too far from his family but still wants some privacy so he has rented a small apartment in Wellington. He immediately got a job as a Private Eye so he's well on his way to become a SCIA agent.

Stephen's girlfriend Kaitlyn Brennan has also graduated.

She has a degree in General Microbiology with a 3.2 GPA. Kaitlyn and Stephen aren't quite ready to move in together yet although they've been living under the same roof for the last couple of years.

Kaitlyn hasn't been able to get a job in a science lab yet but she's working as an Algae Hunter in the natural science field so she's quite happy with her job.

Life hasn't been easy for Eve Midlock for the past few years but she's been able to fight through all the obstacles and she's very proud of herself on her graduation day.

Eve has a degree in Modern Dance with a 3.4 GPA and she is anxious to start saving for her own dance studio.

Eve has taken a job as a receptionist in a hair salon. Not her dream job but it pays well. She and Kaitlyn became friends in college so they're now roommates and live in an apartment in Exmoor.

  • New year, new birthday girls and boys! I'm so excited to have my first real roommate household. I bet Kaitlyn and Eve are going to very fun to play. Kaitlyn is probably about one step away from becoming a real playable. It'll all depend on what happens with her and Stephen.
  • As you can see, I've switched to using months now. I'll still do all age-ups in the January birthday post but I have also determined a birth month for all my sims and they will get a proper birthday party if I happen to play their household at that time.

  1. Yay, can't wait to see Eve and Kaitlyn, that should be awesome.

    1. I'm super-excited about having a roommate household, I bet it's going to be fun.

      Thanks for reading. :)

  2. Happy birthday everybody! I'm excited for this new round to start. It'll be interesting to see Finn and Dawn cope with living together and Finn adjusting to full-time parenthood.

    Some good looking Sims around here! ;) I love the look of Josh and Kaitlyn, in particular. She and Eve will be a ton of fun to play together, I bet. Roommates are always fun!

    1. I'm so happy that I'm finally able to start a new round! It's going to take some adjustment from both Dawn and Finn but hopefully they'll get through the awkward parts quickly and enjoy their new life together.

      I have to say of all the good looking Cooper brothers, Josh has to be the most handsome. But then again, I'm like a proud mother who thinks all her "babies" are gorgous. I can't wait to play Eve and Kaitlyn, they're going to be a fun duo.

      Thanks for reading. :)

  3. Wow, I didn't even recognize Finn at first. He aged well.

    I'm thinking about making the switch to months as well, but not sure yet if I want to give birthday months as well. I guess I'll just wait and see how you will do yours.

    Happy birthday, everyone!

    1. I almost didn't recognize him either, lol. He looks quite different than he did as a teenager.

      Assigning a birth month won't really affect my gameplay. I just make a little note for myself that if the sim's household is scheduled to play on their birth month then I'll let them have a real birthday party. That's something that my sims never have but I think it would be fun to have more different kind of birthday celebrations.

      Thanks for reading. :)

  4. You're another one with gorgeous sims. Love all the age ups and Finn is a little hottie! Lilly is as cute as a button and I really like Kaitlyn's hair. Can't wait to see what the future holds for everyone this round. Looking forward to the roommate household, too. I should get my first one next sim-year. :)

    And yay for switching to months! I switched a while ago and gave my sims birth months based on their zodiac sign (for all the pre-made sims) and I *still* forget about their birthdays LOL. I was a little stuck on what I wanted to do for my next update but I looked and one of the sims has a birthday. Problem solved!

    1. I love Lilly, she and Josh are my new favorite couple. Then again I have a new favorite couple after each update, lol. I can't wait to play Eve and Kaitlyn but I still have many households scheduled before I get to them.

      I love playing with months. All my sims had their birth season so I just rolled a birth month and a birthday for them. The zodiacs don't really match but I'm too lazy to fix them. I hope I can throw a birthday party for one of my sims but I haven't checked if any of them falls into my play schedule.

      Thanks for reading. :)
