Settling into the new home

The time before Luke left on his mission seemed to pass in the blink of an eye. They were able to take some of the essentials to the new house, but the agency would have a service deliver their remaining belongings shortly after he left, which was probably good because it would help pass the time without dwelling on Luke being away on a mission without her for the first time.

Definitely smaller, but a neat home with plenty of room for all three children

Bre and Luke discovered a neat area on the property; wooded with a pavilion and Bre couldn’t wait to work on the landscaping and adding more Fall decor. One of the upsides to having a smaller home was a lot of land for everyone to enjoy.

After exploring some of the property the day before, on the last day they took Niall and Emma to the pavilion and Emma couldn’t resist taking advantage of a nearby hay bale that she and her brother had been playing on to feel the baby move. Bre felt like her heart would burst from the love and joy of this beautiful moment of the family together at their new home.

Niall was more interested in his thumb than feeling the baby move, but Emma took full advantage of the moment. It was hard for Emma to believe that Bre’s tummy could be so big!

The night before he left, Luke had a sweet little talk with Baby Bump in the soft light of their sparsely filled bedroom. He hated going on a mission with Bre pregnant, especially knowing how much danger was involved, and leaving them to settle into a new home pretty much on their own, but it was moments like tonight’s that he would carry with him for the next few weeks and he knew they would sustain him when he was worried about his safety. A precious family was waiting back at home for him, so he had to make it back no matter what.

Whimsical Designs Gives Us LoveMomma’s Liberty

Just in time for the US holiday, Whimsical Design’s gives us two patriotic options at The Main Event. The first is a cute bikini set, but at five months along, Bre is a little more comfortable in the Tank and Shorts Fatpack. The set has 5 jean shorts and 6 4th of July themed tank tops, available at Corfu Beach.

Luane’s World has redone the amazing sim again and had an amazing spot to feature my perfect outfit while admiring the new landscaping (and getting a few ideas for redoing our own land *smile*). There are gorgeous new beach and wooded areas to explore and even take pictures at. A cute wood cabin on top of the hill overlooking the beach and ocean was absolutely perfect to capture the moment, in my opinion.

(Notice the sweet little bandit nibbling away at his dinner!)

The AO is a little awkward for the pregnant body, but I wanted to show just how cute these look together 🙂

Look at that adorable profile in a landscape I’d love to visit IRL

Some maternity clothing doesn’t look quite as cute to me as the pregnancy progresses, so I’m so tickled by how this set looks awesome even past the halfway mark! I know what outfit Bre will be sporting while kissing Luke while playing with the sparklers again this year (and the HUD offers other colors!). *smile* On behalf of The Kincaid Family and my RL family, I wish you a happy 4th filled with family, fun, and yummy food, even if it’s not a holiday where you are!

A Magical Morning Together

Luke and I decided to explore Luanes Magical World today and found this beautiful little gazebo. With a little windlight magic and a softer clarity, we had a magical moment of our own, celebrating four months along. We couldn’t resist a loving pregnancy pose I had found at Reina’s Photography and been holding onto until her bump really started to show more.




RP pose CP0028

We usually stick to the regular Luanes World sim and explore her landscaping (and maybe copy a few ideas when we’re needing to change things up *grin*), but I highly recommend checking out her Magical World sim. Just remember to use a default or magical type of windlight in order to get to appreciate all of the beautiful details and work that Luane put into the land. There are a ton of little getaways tucked into the trees, down the mystical paths, and behind light beams.

I was lucky enough to get the Abby Top from Whimsical Design’s that I paired with the maxi skirt part of outfit 4 from Bluebird Baby, which was the perfect height of crop to show off that sweet little baby bump for Luke to whisper fairytails of magic to. It’s a smock style type with ruched sleeves and a high-low style crop which I found versatile enough to wear with the maxi skirt but paired really well with jeans too, so I’d definitely recommend checking out this new addition to her LoveMomma line.

I want to keep this short and sweet, since it was such a magical moment that it deserves to stand by itself, so following are the credits (SLurls subject to change of course, but I tried to provide what I could).

Quiet Time

With so much going on lately, Bre took a quiet day while Eva had Niall and Emma for the weekend. Between Whimsical Designs’ knee high sports socks and LoveMomma’s (available right there in the store) oversized jersey, yoga and some napping were a must. Usually a sports sock would call for some tennis, rollerskating, or softball, but they made a perfect lounging sock this time!

Sporty lounge wear can still be sexy and adorable!

Time for a little nap before Sis brings the kids home…

2 Months!

A super awesome feature of choosing the standard 9 months of pregnancy with the Zooby LoveMomma Body is that although I was down and out with Covid for nearly a month, our little SL Peanut was just fine and now that I am starting to get better, we got to celebrate the tiny bump Bre is developing!

I went ahead and made the belly semi-transparent so little Peanut shows right above the belly button 🙂

I couldn’t resist this sweet picture that just came about while trying other things.

I should be working on landscaping for Spring and really changing things up, but I spent the whole evening exploring new clothing options for the body, honestly. *laugh* It’s like when Maitreya first came out, all over again, especially since Bre will be in this body into November. *grin*

The adorable bow capri jeans are over at <MC> LM-Capris w/bow

I used the top from a combo outfit and the alpha didn’t quite work perfectly, but I couldn’t resist something showing that tiny bump. *grin* The full combo outfit is {bb} Mommy Outfit #17 (Bluebird Baby; also on MP), while I used the top alpha from Sweet Penelope’s Sport Top.

KC Couture is starting to offer a variety of shoes that include for Momma, along with the usual mesh feet, so I’ve been obsessed with their affordable options. The cute Awena sandals (not visible, but definitely deserves some credit!) from there have a ton of customizable parts. They’re shoes I’d actually wear IRL, regardless if I was PG, so I couldn’t leave them out.

Of course the Zooby LoveMomma Body (2.2) is available here (although locations may change as they get settled into having a whole shopping experience from child avatars, animesh children, and then the two mesh bodies).

And as I will use each month, the Belly Progress pose by Veiled Bae.

I couldn’t resist a little extra because I’m totally loving this free gift (mini HUD!) from Flrn Baby’s! The Lae Love Momma Top & Sarong Gift is so fun and perfect while I’ve been looking for the perfect bathing suit. Notes; this is a free join group, with amusing and cute group gifts, so it’s worth joining if you have a spot; but this gift also has no bikini bottom or alpha. So far I haven’t run into a need for an alpha other than some leg clipping that would have happened anyway with my AO and I just used the panties that generously come with the body (shhh *grin*) under the sarong.

I think Emma was just happy for a little pool time with Mommy!

Although I don’t post for Truth, I have a hard time not wearing Unravel. The perfect bit of curl and somehow accentuates the body changes, in my opinion.

As I continue to improve, I have so many fun things to blog! I found some cute poses for Luke and Bre working on the nursery, some adorable maternity clothing, and we even managed to wander a few neat places that we’d like to share, so lots more cuteness to come! 🙂

Love Will Find a Way

Despite a crazy RL lately, Luke and Bre discovered that love found a way to take them on a wild new SL adventure (as if undercover agents wasn’t enough! *laugh*). Thanks to Zooby’s new AvLove Momma body, Bre had an extra special Valentine’s gift for Luke…

Surprise!

So, seriously, where are we putting a third crib?!

(RL note: I am the “bonus mom” to “Luke’s” two sons and life didn’t travel down the pregnancy path for us, so we decided that it would be neat to go through a pregnancy and raise “our own” baby together in SL. Thanks to Carrie at Zooby and her amazing designers, we get to experience a version of parenthood with our own biological child, although of course the boys are a blessing and dream come true all ready. This gives a little super special adventure to share in SL. We’ve hit a really neat stage in SL technology to have such amazing abilities as a body that progresses through pregnancy without using sliders!)

How do you think Emma and Niall will handle a little brother or sister?

Aw!

Aw, look at “Little Peanut”!

My note: The AvLove Momma body, once pregnant, has a developing fetus that you can look at (It was hard to get a good angle with the built in transparency option, so I just panned the camera in for this shot, with it being just a little peanut *smile*). The body has a belly alpha with a HUD to control options with the body but also with the belly alpha, so if desired you can make that area of the belly semi translucent or get an adorable little “window” to watch your pixel baby develop! If you’ve ever wanted to RP pregnancy, this is by far the most awesome option you could ever get, and designers are really swinging into gear to develop fit mesh clothing to grow with the body and awesome poses, too, not to mention all of the clothing for the newborns (since you also have the option to actually buy the new Zooby Animesh Newborn instead of the AvLove Momma body and an egg, and then follow the steps to get pregnant – with three time frames to utilize for the pregnancy and an animated labor, with a HUD to pick what newborn you want [so when you buy the egg, you’re paying for a newborn to be delivered to you at labor]!). The store is a bit minimal at the moment, although there’s even a non-PG related body available as well that Zooby has developed, so I definitely recommend you go HERE! You can use your own shape even and allow the body to progress through body changes during pregnancy without ever changing your worn shape!

Another note: It is worth mentioning that like anytime a new body hits the market, there are limited clothing and skin designers for it at first. There are a few who were ready for the launch with one being Sweet Penelope (a brand you know and trust for your Zooby Animesh if you’re familiar with the Zooby Animesh experience), who has this incredibly adorable sports bra and pants in floral, with a quickly growing inventory of clothing options for the new body. The body has The Skinnery skin tones built in, and they often have sales for the various popular heads available. Bre has a bit of a skin neck line ATM because we didn’t feel that any of matching head skins really suited Bre, so I kept on my preferred skin and haven’t played with adjusting the neck shading yet.

Love found a way for Luke and Bre to be reunited in RL after 19 years and now spend both the rest of their/our lives together in both worlds. What an exciting new SL adventure to share!
