A big life update

Sorry it's been so quiet around here for the last couple of months. I promise it's for good reason... I'm pregnant! 

While there's nothing wrong with my brain or fingers, the first trimester morning sickness and fatigue hit me hard and I've lacked the motivation to do much more than get through the day.

It seems those symptoms are starting to ease slowly, so I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things here on graceclare.

We are so excited to be welcoming Baby Mackay in March next year and can't wait to meet him/her. We've decided to have a surprise, although it was extra hard saying 'no' when the sonographer asked us yesterday if we wanted to know the baby's gender (crazy she could tell at that early stage, I know!). But we held strong.

Our 12 week ultrasound was such an amazing experience. I couldn't believe how something so small could be so baby-like already. It was jumping and rolling around, waving its little arms and legs. Oh dear, I think I'm going to cry just thinking about it! 

So that's what's been happening with us. Big changes in the next 6 months but I couldn't be more excited.

I'm thinking about creating a 'children' category and dedicating it to all things baby and mum life. Would you be interested in that? Let me know what sort of posts you'd be interested in and I will make it happen.

Thanks again for your patience and I look forward to picking things back up in this space! Stay tuned.
