Baby 96 Mikolaj Sierra grew up into a fair-skinned lass with huge purple eyes inherited from her father, Darrel Powers. Little Mikolaj had Cadence's trademark pink-blonde hair and lovely bangs.
Though Cadence was elated and ecstatic that she was well on her way to completing her mission of 100 babies; deep inside her heart, she was feeling awful and empty that this challenge was coming to an end. She was definitely showing some freaky and weird withdrawal symptoms by displaying strange expressions on her face. The worst part was that Cadence totally had no control over these peculiar expressions and actions. "Argh! What's up with my mouth?" Cadence muttered as her mouth twitched involuntarily.
"Oh no! My mouth is twitching and I can't open my eyes properly!" Cadence gasped as she wondered what was wrong with her. She never had such encounters before, this was her body's way of telling her that she was stressed out and feeling miserable that her 100 baby challenge was ending.
"Am I seeing double?" Cadence blinked hard and tried her best to pry her eyes open. She was experiencing some blur vision and felt faint.
Luckily, there was some happy news to distract her from her misery, Misty and Laura were holding their big birthday bash tonight!
Even Baby 32 Darcie's ghost came back to take part in this joyous occasion!
As Misty and Laura strode into young adulthood, Cadence had these wise words for them, "Achievement is not always success, while reputed failure often is. It is honest endeavor, persistant effort to do the best possible under any and all circumstances."
"Mum, I'll definitely keep these words in mind." Laura clapped as she pondered over Cadence's wise sayings.
Baby 93 Misty Sierra all ready for the young adulthood! He had very pronounced double eyelids and looked dashing with his tousled brown hair. He loved Sylvester the Cat so much that he wore this Tee almost everyday.
"Hmm..what's that smell?" Misty sneezed. "Its the lovely aroma, my lemon cream pie aroma! Bro, you grew up with me, you mean you cannot tell its the lemon cream pie scent? Hello?" Laura said proudly, totally forgetting that she once hated the smell when she was younger. She always wondered why she was so different from her peers.
"Haha! It's so irresistable that I have suitors queuing all the way to Twinbrook, ya know? Aren't you honoured to be my twin brother?" Laura laughed while Misty rolled his eyes. "Ahhh...well. You just don't appreciate good things! Let's get cracking! We have serious stuff to do! Like moving out of the house!" Laura said in a matter of fact tone. With the Lemon Cream Pie twins shifting out of the Sierras, the family now had more space to welcome the all important Baby 100!
"Bro Milo, you know Mum is on her way to finishing her 100 baby challenge, will she dote on Baby 100 more than us?" The jealous Mikolaj asked Milo. "I don't think so, Mum loves us all the same. Look, even with the arrival of Destiny, Flint and Stone, she still paid equal attention to us." Milo tried to ease Mikolaj's worries.
A part of Cadence still refused to acknowledge the fact that she was approaching the end of the 100 Baby Challenge. Her body reflex was still acting up, she would occasionally have strange actions that Cadence wouldn't have normally.
"ERr...ahh..woo.." Cadence would make such mysterious noises without herself realising it. She was definitely not her usual self.
"BOO!! MUM!" The attention seeking Mikolaj came from the back and scared Cadence when she wasn't looking. Since young, she was the apple of her father's eye and received much love from both Cadence and her dad, Darrel. She was afraid that Cadence would concentrate on the much hyped Baby 100 and she would no longer be loved.
"Mum, will you love Baby 100 more than you love me?" Little Mikolaj asked Cadence innocently. She was such a dear angel. "Every single one of you are my darlings, my precious gifts from heaven. You too, little Miko!" Cadence told Mikolaj and gave her a assuring hug.
"GET MOVING! Right now!" Cadence pointed to the exercise machine and pushed Liam the Nerd onto the exercise machine.
"No!! I need a little warmup before I run fast! Switch it back to the normal mode, Cadence!" Liam pleaded as he grabbed on tightly to the exercise machine when he missed a step. "Run! I thought you said you are good at running? The top speed is for good runners like you! Liam! Go! Get up and run!" Cadence shouted at him as Liam struggled to stand up.
"Oh! Please! Cadence. I really can't..I'm losing balance!" Liam begged Cadence to stop but Cadence was just started her way of "torturing" Liam the Nerd.
"This will teach you a lesson! Never to appear on my screen again! Get it?" Cadence yelled at Liam who was having a hard time with the exercise machine. Cadence was finally having her sweet revenge.
"Bring it on! Cadence, I can take it. I have people trying to scorch me in a fire, electrocuting me. I am made of tougher material." Liam tried to challenge Cadence.
"Alright, let's see if you can take a million of needles piercing your skin!" Cadence laughed as she thought of Liam the Nerd grimacing in pain. "Tattoo machine? Sounds cool. I would love to have my name tattoo on my arm please." Liam requested.
"Here it goes..." Cadence toggled with the buttons. She giggled as she chose a cute bunny to be tattooed on Liam's chest. It would be a funny sight to see Liam the Nerd with an adorable pink bunny tattoo.
"Okay! Just relax and enjoy. You will definitely LOVE the tattoo that I chose for you. It suits a nerd like you!" Cadence smirked.

"Look, I even tried to make this promise when I was at my wits end but it did not work as I appeared on their page time and time again. I just could not find another person to replace this much hated role of mine." Liam showed Cadence the picture that he made.
"Oh! Poor thing! My gosh! I feel so bad that I made you fall on the exercise machine. I did not know you had such a hard time in Twinbrook. It must have been very hard on you." The soft hearted Cadence tried to comfort Liam by hugging him. She was moved by Liam's determination and bravery to live on.
Cadence did not answer Liam but instead inched forward and leaned closer to Liam. Liam was so shy that his cheeks were so red from blushing.
"Don't be shy! Is this your first kiss?" Cadence flirted with Liam. Liam nodded and closed his eyes.
Cadence gaved Liam his very first kiss.
Then Liam gave Cadence a wet and sloppy kiss.
"Aha! You know, Liam, I'm excited about two things. The first is of course the makings of Baby 100. The second thing I'm excited about is seeing your pink bunny tattoo again!" Cadence laughed.
The makings of Baby 100! The sounds of the lullaby never felt this good before.
"HAHA! This pink bunny kind of fits your nerdy image!" Cadence chortled as she saw Liam's bunny. "Hmm...Its a little weird. Especially its right in the middle of my chest. But I just treat it as a gift from you, a piece of memory that I can never erase away!" Liam tried to look on the bright side.
"Can't wait to see Baby 100! I still can't believe I'm at Baby 100 already!" Cadence told Liam.
In the meantime, Cadence spent some quality time with her new set of triplets. Kids grow up really fast. Before Cadence knew it, they would be all grown up and ready to move out of the Sierras.
Cadence made sure that she was always there for their important milestones such as walking, talking or trivial stuff like smiling and grabbing things.
"Aww! This might be the very last time that I am going to be pregnant!" Cadence frowned as she held Baby Destiny.
"I will miss cradling and snuggling babies! Oh..." Cadence muttered as she patted Destiny who let out a gurgle.
"Flint! Mommy loves you!" Cadence whispered to Baby Flint who smiled as though he understood what Cadence was saying.
"You understand what I'm saying? Clever Flint! That's my baby!" Cadence played with Flint.
"My little Stone! Had a good sleep?" Cadence kissed Baby Stone.
Baby 98 Flint Sierra was the only one amongst the triplets to inherit Cadence's pink blond hair and pink brows. He had his father's black eyes though.
"Put the bottle into your mouth! Not your nose! Flint!" Cadence tried to teach Flint the correct way of handling the milk bottle.
"Let's go get your milk bottle!" Cadence said to the hungry Destiny.
The evil Mikolaj tried to bully poor little Stone when Cadence wasn't on the second storey. She was trying to steal a lollipop from him.
Little Stone stretched out his hands thinking that his sister, Mikolaj would hug him.
Little did he know that the evil Mikolaj stole his candy, leaving him all alone to cry it out.
"Hmm! Yummy! Thanks, bro!" Mikolaj said as she licked on the rainbow candy..
"WAH!!!!" Stone who seldom cry was kicking up a big fuss. He was so upset that he threw a big tantrum as he did not expect Mikolaj to steal his candy.
"Sleep tight, my darling.." Cadence slowly carried the sleepy Flint to his crib.
Destiny enjoying herself at the blocks table.
Her two brothers decided to join in the fun. "Hmmm...I wonder if I will ever witness such a heartwarming scene after 100 babies.." Cadence was overwhelmed with sadness.
The triplets spent the entire afternoon building and dismantling the blocks.
Then Cadence's withdrawal symptoms kicked in again. "Oh...no more babies after this..." She looked at herself in disbelief. She had been pregnant for more than three quarters of her adult life.
The doll house was definitely a hot favorite among the triplets.
"Look! I can hold the doll with my mouth!" It was as if Flint was trying to show off his ability to his elder sister, Destiny.
"Grrr! Give it back to me!" Destiny tried to snatch the doll from Flint.
"You can do it, so can I!" Destiny showed Flint that she also knew how to do it.
Mikolaj was still worried that Cadence would favour Baby 100 over her. She got even more uptight when she saw Cadence stroking her tummy, smiling to herself.
"Yum! Yum!" Flint devoured the food painstakingly prepared by brother dearest, Milo.
"You did well! Cadence!" She praised herself.
"Congrats! MUM!!! I heard you are pregnant with Baby 100!!" Baby 3 Bliss Sierra shrieked over the phone. Cadence was grinning from ear to ear at her accomplishment.
Just then, those involuntarily freaky twitching actions started.
"Argh! This birth just feels so different! It seems like I can't control my body!" Cadence gasped as she struggled to keep her eyes open.
"Wow! Is the baby due soon?" Liam the Nerd dropped by the Sierras to visit Cadence and thanked her for letting him win the coveted title of being the father of baby 100. "Not so fast, but soon!" Cadence told Liam who was so excited.
"Woah! Be careful, Stone!" Cadence managed to grab hold of Stone before he fell on the ground.
"My body feels like its breaking down! My bones are breaking!!" Cadence whined as she grimaced in pain.
