Sadly this challenge had to be discontinued due to a weird glitch where I could no longer take screenshots without the game crashing. D: I'll consider myself lucky to have gotten to the half-way point at least before it had to end.
Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who took the journey with me, as well as donated daddies to help Holly make the pretty Woods. I apologize to all those who took the time to make daddies or donate them, who I didn't get a chance to use. I'm keeping the links however, and plan to sprinkle them into my other games to hopefully procreate and make possible future spouses.
If this is your first visit here, feel free to read through what I managed to get done. I've been told it's half-way amusing.
Hello all! You can call me Lynn, and this here is Holly Wood, our many-baby-momma-to-be.
She looks so excited doesn't she . . .
I decided I'd give the 100 Baby Challenge a go, after being inspired by the lovely Amberwaves (as so many of us have been) and others. These are the particular guidelines I'll be following in my challenge, a little bit different than some ;
* I'll be playing in the Hidden Springs town.
* Unlike most, I won't be doing the 'rags to riches' part of the challenge. As part of her storyline, Holly has inherited 20,000 simoleons and a nice big house to get her started. She'll then receive an additional 10,000 of the inheritance per child born.
* All traits of the children will be determined through random rolling. There will be no influencing of baby gender (through foods) or messing with the physical traits after birth in CAS. I'll change hairstyles and clothes, but that's it.
* Each pregnancy must have a different father.
* Toddlers must be taught to walk, talk and use the potty before being aged up.
* Once a new addition to the family is made, each child will be aged up to the next category. Once they reach YA, the children will be moved out into the town to spread their own wings and fly (or crash headlong into a tree).
* No butlers or babysitters or maids (anymore, I fired the useless guy finally and am just gonna make due with child labor . . . I mean, Holly's hard work. ).
* I'll try to leave the kids mostly autonomous, but I'm usually very particular about controlling everybody. So this isn't something I can guarantee. (read : probably not gonna happen)
* Child Naming - In keeping with the theme of the family, I'm going to attempt to name every child after some sort of plant (tree, flower, bush, etc). Wish me luck!
Note - It has recently come to my attention that some of the Wood children have been removed off of the exchange for whatever reason. I've replaced them with mediafire links to download their .sim files instead.

This is me, Holly Wood. Traits - Hopeless Romantic, Friendly, Brave, Nurturing, Family Oriented.
I'm currently standing outside this huge house I just inherited in the beautiful resort town of Hidden Springs. Awesome, right? Except that it comes with a few . . . strings attached. Apparently I'm the very last of my family bloodline. My great-great Uncle Cypress, after spending his life unsuccessfully trying to add to the family tree (read: complete social disaster) left everything in his will to me; a huge house, and over a million simoleons in cash. But in order to claim and keep it all, I apparently have to single-handedly bring the Wood family back from the brink of extinction. I only get the house and 20,000 up front, and then another 10,000 for every child born. Yeah, you read that right. The kooky old bat wants me to have a hundred kids! And not only that. In order to insure the best possible flooding of the gene-pool, I have to nab a different father each time I get pregnant!
I guess it's a good thing I wanted children in the first place.
And So It Begins :
After arriving, Holly explores the house a little, and it quickly becomes apparent just how much old Uncle Cypress wanted kids.
Holly actually starts to feel a bit sorry for him . . .
Out in the garage, she spies some sort of chemical lab. Holly's got a bit of scientific knowledge herself (maybe it's inherited?) First thing's first: if she's going to attract all these men, and stay alive long enough to have a hundred babies, she's going to have to do something about her limited lifespan.
With that research underway, Holly stepped outside only to be greeted by a member of Hidden Springs' upstanding Police Department. Who also happened to be the Prince of the town. Sebastian Vanderburg.
Who better to add to her lagging family's genetics? With this in mind she slipped into something a little more . . . revealing, and introduced herself.
Within moments he was putty in her hands. And she thought to herself, this is going to be easier than I thought . . . .
The two headed upstairs and got even more comfortable . . . and cozy.
Which lead to the inevitable.
After that, Sebastian had to leave. But he left a very happy camper.

Feel free to use any Male's from my Studio as Daddies!^-^
I'll be sure to add Holly to one of my "Baby Momma" houses so she can reap havoc in my town with Fayth!
Edit: Just noticed you wanted CC free, if you like any of the guys in my studio, just let me know and I'll upload a CC free version of them for ya.
Ty for the welcome! I'll check out your studio and see what's what. Thanks!

Heheh, tyies. ^ ^ I don't like building so much, but decorating a specific room can be fun. I loved the teddybear/koala themed furniture from the store.
@ HalcyonKat and Trishg21, Brayden Lively and Gavin Faradi have been added to the Daddy List. Though, Gavin's hair did not come with him, so I had to give him a haircut. I hope that's ok. I tried to find one as similar to what he's supposed to have.

Same! I love decorating rooms for people, I just don't like building. I'm actually great at building the average suburban home, because I'm surrounded by them (: Although they may not be modestly priced in Simoleons
