In the last chapter we left Grace wondering if she was pregnant…
Knowing they couldn’t just sit around and stare at Grace, wondering if she was pregnant or not, the prospective parents decided to keep themselves busy.
Luke began to tinker around with inventions and Grace began making nectar with the machene they brought back from their honeymoon.
“This is strange, I normally love the smell of nectar but today it is making me queasy.”
It is so cool they can do laundry now.
Since they plan to have a big family a video camera is a must, Grace practiced with the new camera by filming Luke.
Her filming was cut short when she had to run for the bathroom.
“Yes! I’m preg… *urp*”
Let’s move away and give Grace some space for a moment.
“Whew! Being pregnant is tougher than I thought.”
Just because she is carrying the first baby of the second O’Connor Legacy Generation does not stop Grace from taking care of her garden.
Luke is working as a police officer, I’m sorry I don’t remember what level he is at right now.
As soon as she began to show Grace called her parents over.
Kevin asked if she wanted to know the gender but Grace said she wanted to be suprized.
Grace loved talking with her dad, but the person she really wanted to talk to was her mom.
Allow me a moment of nostalgia
Here sit the two mothers of the O’Connor clan, the younger seeking advice from the older as how to properly care for her new young soon to be born.
*reaches for tissues*
As expected Clare had lots of advice for Grace, there wasn’t anything a baby had ever: done, eaten, broken, fallen in to, or vomited on that Clare hadn’t seen.
This is not Kevin and Clare’s first grandchild.
(they have six grandchildren: Mark and Bianca have four children: Reed, Natalia, Samuel, and Steve. And Mike and Sapphire have two: Garrett and Ralph)
But Grace is the first of Clare’s daughters to be a mother, so this is exciting for several reasons.
As Clare hugged Grace goodbye she felt the baby bump and was reminded of the joy she felt carrying all of her children. She knew when she and Kevin chose Grace to be their heir they were making the right choice, and seeing the way Grace was glowing only added to her confidance in the new O’Connor mother.
As time passed Grace loved her baby more and more.
“I can’t wait to meet you, little one.” she whispered.
One day Luke came home with wonderful news, he had been promoted at work!
With a growing wife and family to take care of, the faster Luke moves up at work the better.
One evening Grace was working on the laundry when the pain hit her.
“LUKE! THE BABY IS COMING!”
Completely not prepared to have the baby at home the couple rushed to the hospital. And look one of Grace’s brothers was at the hospital too.
It’s a girl! Grace gave birth to a beautiful baby girl they named Chloe.
Baby 11 Chloe was born with the Good and Genius traits. A wonderful way to start the new generation.
“Goodnight my princess.”
“You don’t know it now but you are the beginning of a great legacy, and I am sure you are going to be a wonderful big sister.
Time for us to let the new family rest, but just in case you were wondering here is what the new family tree looks like.
Clare and Luke are just getting back from their honeymoon. While they were gone Kevin and Clare had the family home completely renovated. The new couple will have the ability to start their lives in a new home that is still the home the legacy began in.
Let’s take a tour.
“Excuse me! First it is makeover time. I am going to be a mom, I can’t run after children with this long flowing hair. They will pull it out and get food in it. I need a hairstyle that is fit for a mom but not a boring mom hair cut.”
“What did I say about long hair?”
“I would get such a headache wearing it up all the time.”
“Perfect! This is me, not too short and not too long.”
Here is the face of the mother of the second generation of the O’Connor Legacy.
“One last thing, my shirt needs to be purple.”
Just a reminder I did not create Luke. This is Black Rose by Nin22, I loved the way he looked but I did not want to use a custom skin and contacts since this is a gene legacy so I modified him a little.
However, since I did not create him originally I will not upload Luke. If you would like to download him download Black Rose here:

Okay enough with the makeovers on to the house.
When Grace and Luke pulled up to their house Grace almost didn’t recognize it.
Her parents had done such a fantastic job remodeling the house it was more beautiful that she ever could have imagined.
Everything was perfect. Master bedroom with private bath, two bathrooms for the kids, a nursery, and a boys room and a girls room. Not to mention the den/library adjacent to the kitchen and the huge living room.
The first thing Grace saw when she walked through the door was one of her mother’s paintings hanging in the entry way.
“Thank you mom.” As a tribute to Clare O’Connor this painting will always hang in the O’Connor house.
Grace added her own touch to the house by having a special display of the antiques she brought home from their honeymoon. They are behind glass to keep the future kiddies from breaking them.
Walking down the hall Grace saw another of her mother’s paintings.
First Grace entered the master bedroom.
Next the nursery.
“I can just imagine all the babies that will live in this room.
Staring off into the future Grace could almost hear the sounds of her children’s laughter.
While Grace was on a sentimental trip through the house, Luke discovered the basement when his inventing work table had been set up.
Grace investigated the extra door in the kitchen and found the stairs to the basement.
“This is new.”
“Grace, check it out I will be the next great inventor!”
The basement was perfect for the wine maker and the laundry. How handy.
Just because they are married does not mean that Luke can stop being romantic.
Luke’s spontaneous flowers prompted Grace to make a spontaneous to him in the shower.
Is this the beginning of their first child?
Is Grace pregnant?
