Your child’s looks and personality will be different depending on whom you marry.
Here is some basic information about them that applies to all three children.

In addition to playing with him, you can also give him a bath on certain days. These days vary each month. To see if you can bathe him, just enter the kitchen at a time when he’s there (around 6PM seems to be the best time).
The toddler stage is the only stage in his life in which you can pick him up and take him places, so take advantage of that to develop his interests! His interests may change in later chapters depending on where you take him as a toddler.
Genetic Strengths and Interests:
Depending on who you married, your child has a set number of strengths and interests. The first set (strengths) is purely genetic; it’s simply what he’s naturally good at. The second set (interests) are simply what he likes. You can check both of these things in the assets section of your diary.
Though at first your child has a default number of interests, these are the things you can actually influence. Your actions, what friends you make, and where you take him can and will change his interests.
Developing His Interests
Your Child’s Room
In Chapter 3, your child gets his own bedroom, and looking at the things in his room can help you tell what his interests are and who he is friends with.
Stages of Life
Note: All the information here is based off Lilly’s own experience in the game. Your own results may vary according to how you’ve raised him.
The kid has a tiny bit of interest in art, and nothing else. Heís absolutely terrified of the animals. If brought outside, heíll turn straight around and run back to the house. Iíve tried showing him animals from chickens, to roosters, to my dog- he just squeals and gets upset. All of the tools seem to confuse him, and I get nothing but a ď????? as a response. However, he likes eggs and milk, though heís too young to accept them.
He doesnít say much of anything, though heís always asking if Iím square, and saying that the TV is square. Iím guessing that this plays on the art interest. Otherwise, he mostly mutters nonsense, although as a greeting heíll say, ďMommy.?? Gustafa, when in the room, will sing to him to go to bed. You can tell that heís hoping the kid is a musician, although he asked if Iíd like for him to take over the farm.
