It's official, part of the requirement to do the first new quest is to add a baby.

*Edit* This requirement is only for people who don't have a baby already!

You can now see the roof of the house by going up on the floor level button on the right of the screen

Thank you for this. Good to know I'll have to get my sim limit down before I update. I've never held off on updating before. I'm far too impatient! I don't think I'll actually mind this time. I am looking forward to more interactive babies but I'd like to squeeze a few more LP out of my extra sims before I let them go.

It looks like you may only have to get rid of sims if you are over the limit and don't have a baby. Someone said on Facebook that the game allowed them to use the baby they already had!

Well, darn. I guess I'll go ahead and delete Ruby, and start a new baby percolating. The update is apparently not available for Kindle yet.

No. Silly me saved just after starting the new baby. Well, it's not too bad. At least I have some platinum orbs saved up.

So sorry you deleted your baby. :( Did they have a lot of connections you have to rebuild now?
