Gen 1 - Chapter One: In the beginning there was two.

Claude and I have been going steady for a while now, I caught him the other day looking online at wedding stuff. I didn't say anything though. I don't want to ruin his surprise. The house is looking good, and after we decorated, we started putting some money aside for the future.

I have been having a lot of fun at work recently, I'm currently at the School as a Playground Monitor, it is making me a little broody though. I am also studying part time for my teaching qualification.

Claude is not exactly struggling with his job, he just hasn't found his niche yet. He got into the Police Force to solve great mysteries, and right the wrongs of the world, not hand out parking tickets. So he is feeling a little down at the moment, but I told him that he just needs to knuckle down. We have invited his boss, Goodwin Goode over for a meal in the hope that it will grease the corporate wheels a bit.

The meal went well Goodwin is a bit of a hopeless romantic, so he kept telling us these stories of girlfriends past. It was a little uncomfortable, but it is important for Claude's and my futures. Goodwin left at about one in the morning  We were both exhausted after a long day of work and conversation, so we sent straight to bed.

Claude has been so busy trying to get promoted, that we haven't really been intimate for a while, I know he is unendingly faithful. However he just doesn't seem as interested any more.

Well after way too long, Claude and I reconnected in all of the best ways possible. It feels like how it did in those first few weeks. The blossoming feelings, and the rush of the world around you when you are together. Oh how I had missed those feelings, well not missed them as such, but become distracted from them.

I have been really sick, so I did a test just to be sure and Oh My God! I'm pregnant. Claude keeps rubbing my belly. I swear if he could he would be in my belly as well, just to get as much time as possible with the baby. He has really been showing me how much he cares, I haven't cooked a meal in about 2 months!

All of the kids at School have been fascinated by my pregnancy, I don't think many of them have smaller brothers or sisters, so they have not experienced pregnancy before. It did lead to some awkward questions as well, like "Miss where do babies come from?" and "How did it get in your belly?"

Pregnancy is going great, my bump is getting bigger though, which means that it is starting to get awkward walking everywhere, So Claude and I have been talking, and with some of the savings we have, we are putting down a deposit on a car.

Went to the showroom today, I fell in love with this ceramic white Prius, It was gorgeous. Claude wasn't very keen on the Hybrid vibe, he started being all silly about environmental stuff, saying his work mates all drive manly cars like hummers and what-not and he wasn't getting some pansy sissy car . However, exactly three and a half minutes, of "My feet are starting to hurt, ooh my back hurts" we were driving home in our sweet new car.

Starting to really balloon now, I had to wake Claude up at 3 in the morning, to make me some cream for a big piece of Key Lime Pie. Man cravings suck.

I Should go into labour any day soon now.............

Claude is such a trooper. But girls run the world which is why the ended up with the Prius. He dotes on her! Its adorable! When someone asks me what my type is I'll say Claude lol.

Welcome To The Stone Family Blog.

I would like to introduce you to my founder, Jenna Stone and her husband Claude Stone.

Jenna's traits are:

Born Saleswoman



Family Orientated


Her favourite's include:




Jenna is an artistic person, and can always be found painting her worries away. She wants a big family, she say's a home filled with laughter is the place to be. When she isn't painting she can be found either out in the garden or at the library reading. Being Eco-friendly she likes to recycle, take quick showers and just generally take care of the planet. She still remembers the first day she met Claude like it was yesterday. He was walking past as she left the library, and her being the bookworm that she is had her head stuck in her favourite book and bumped into him. Claude caught her and as their eyes met they instantly felt the attraction towards one another, and from that day they never left each others side.

Claude's traits are:

Family Orientated





His favourites include:


Autumn Salad

Irish Green

Claude is very athletic, most days he can be found working out at the gym or with his family.He is also very charismatic and loves to make friends and meet new people. He is very career orientated and because he is a schmoozer he makes friends with colleagues very quickly. He is very family orientated and would love 4 or 5 children. He has always wanted a large family and never thought it would be possible until he met Jenna. He and Jenna were engaged within 6 months of meeting, they had a whirlwind romance and neither could imagine life without the other.

What will the future hold for the Stone's.
