    A Look Back.



You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby.

On December 27th, 1979, Casey Edward Malone came into the world.

IMG_8259 (640x640)

Growing up in Indiana, he had a thing for matching sweat suits, little league sports, and an impressive rat-tail that grew half-way down his back. 

Across the state line in Ohio, Emily Bohlen Holcombe arrived a little over a year later on February 24th, 1981.

IMG_8260 (640x640)

She was known for wearing jelly shoes, loving Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and loving dresses that sparkled.

Twenty-something years later – they met, fell madly in love, and got married.

Today, they are a happy family of four.

IMG_2786

And now sometime around October 15th, 2011 – that family of four will become a family of five. 

No, we’re not getting another dog (lord help us) – we’re having a BABY!

It is still very early (8 weeks!), and there is still a lot of unknown.  Most people wait until later to make this announcement, but writing is my therapy and my outlet.  Keeping it all to myself has been hard enough for the past four weeks, and I wanted to share the news with you guys as soon as we had told family.  Either way, for better or for worse, we can all share in the journey together.  I know that no matter what happens, writing about it is the best choice for me.

I’ll be back soon with more details, info, and answers.  For now, I’m off to find some more saltines…

Katie KS     at 4:07 pm

Congratulations! You’ll be a great mommy. I am due Sept. 3 with my second … It’s fun to be pregnant and watch others go thru their pregnancy at the same time.

I hope you are staying well. I have a stash of saltines in my desk … But I’m throwing up much less than with my first. Zofran is a miracle drug for vomiters …

I’ve pretty much given up on working out again, other than lugging my 30 lb DD around. I planned to start prenatal yoga yesterday but a sore throat (and we find out today a child with pneumonia and double ear infections) kept me home.

Hope to see you and the little one at the Flying Piglet in 2012 or 2013! :)

Emily, I love your blog and it is one of the few I read regularly. I am 15 weeks pregnant (with my first also!) and am so excited for you! Even though I don’t know you…hah. I am looking forward to reading about your experiences, especially with running! I am running still, just a lot slower and shorter than usual. Have you been able to keep running despite the nausea and total body exhaustion that comes with that first trimester? From my own experience…13 weeks was my magic week – no more nausea and my bedtime was finally past 8:30PM. :) congrats!

Amykinz @ Foodie4Healing     at 7:27 pm

Congrats! And I just have to say that I am SO proud of you for going public so early. I have suffered 2 miscarriages in my past & I, like you, was quite public about them. Some people embraced it, some people ran from it. I think it’s ridiculous that our culture makes the subject of miscarriage so taboo. Women going through it need support & love. Not to feel like they need to go at it alone. SO… I am believing for a happy & healthy pregnancy & baby for you!!! It’s such an exciting time! P.S. I am celebrating my 21 week of being pregnant, too!!! Woo-hoo!!

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

In a sea of comments, I am fishing your out to respond! THANK YOU – that is exactly how I feel. I am definitely still VERY scared and anxious, but not talking about it doesn’t make that any easier! I know that no matter what happens, talking about it is the best release for me, and I would never want to hide such a personal struggle. Here’s hoping that doesn’t happen. Thanks for re-affirming my decision. And a million congrats to YOU too!

Jessica Sinclair Reply:

Congratuations to both of you! Being a mom is the most fulfilling and most frustrating work/gift you will ever do and have. I am a happy mom of an almost 10 year old boy who was born at 29 weeks and 5 days. He was 2 pounds 4 ounces, and a perfect little fighter who pulled through and is now the light of my life (who I frequently wish to gag as he never stops talking….LOL). Very little in life is as exciting as growing a new life…. I wish you both an untroubled and amazing journey!

Oh Emily, one last thing… since you’re a health-nut like me, I don’t know your stance on medicine, but I thought you might be interested in something called Hynobirthing (I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about this, but I have high hopes for your little miracle growing inside you as we speak)! :) Here’s the link: http://www.hypnobirthing.com/

[Reply]

Katie KS Reply:

I admire you Jessica! I had a miscarriage so early we hadn’t told anyone we were pregnant (5 weeks 3 days). It happened on Halloween and the baby’s due date was our anniversary so it was just like a triple whammy. I did tell people after the midwife confirmed it two days later, and got comments from the helpful to the horrid. I am hoping to do some writing about it. There is a national day of remembrance in October. Blessedly we got pregnant very quickly afterwards and are due in September! This time we did tell a lot of people around 6 weeks and asked for prayers. Blessings to you and your baby!

Katie KS Reply:

Oops, this was supposed to be to Amy – I typed to quickly. But Jessica, your story is very inspiring too!

[Reply]

Amykinz @ Foodie4Healing Reply:

Katie, my story is similar. I had a beautiful perfect daughter w/no complications 4 years ago. In the past 4 years I’ve suffered 2 miscarriages & finally got pregnant again this past October. We’re due July & sooo excited! We found out when I was only 3 weeks & PUBLICLY told people right away. I’m convinced the outpouring of prayers is what has gotten us thru this pregnancy successfully! You can find my entire story here: http://foodie4healing.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-miracle.html. Congrats to you & your current miracle! Keep your head up & the prayers coming!!!

Jennifer     at 8:54 am

I am so incredibly happy for you. The best piece of advice I received when I was first expecting was: “Nothing can prepare you for how much you love your kid.” And I truly think that is true. Until that munchkin actually enters the world, you are truly unprepared for the love that is about to enter your life. Children, in my opinion, make everything that is wrong with the world right. I just cannot express how happy I am for you.

Allison B     at 2:27 pm

You can never be told congratulations too many times..so CONGRATULATIONS to you two!
It’s an amazing life/body changing journey that is worth every minute and penny! I have 2 amazing daughters, 9 and 2. I was reading some of the other posts and its amazing how many women have gone through similar (I wish I would’ve known some of you almost 3 years ago).
Don’t fret over your dogs, just let them be around and snoop when the nursery gets prepped and to sniff something of your little bundle of joy when he/she comes home so they can learn the new scent. I’m sure others will have other tips and tricks…that’s just what worked for our pups.
BTW – have you tried TJ’s ginger snap cookies? They helped out a lot with morning sickness.
Ok…I’m done with my 2 cents.

I found your blog some time ago, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. I have never commented before, but I just wanted to wish you and Casey the best of luck – I hope everything goes smoothly! I can’t wait to follow you along the journey. :)

PS. I think I can identify with the ‘failed dog trainer’ – ha, ha. However, my old Labrador was the most perfect “uncle” to my little nephew: he would always check on him, lie right beside him when he slept, and alert us whenever the baby cried (and would you believe, he was completely deaf!). He seemed to have endless patience, and we never, ever needed to worry about him being around the baby. I hope your dogs will welcome your newest family member in much the same way. :) Another advantage with having dogs is that research shows that they actually help prevent allergies in children.

Gina     at 8:04 pm

I was wondering why there were no updates for your marathon training runs. :-) I assume you aren’t going to run the Pig this year, but please tell me you are still doing some running!! It’s perfectly fine to keep running while pregnant as long as you aren’t feeling any weird pain or cramps. I ran during both of my pregnancies until about month 5 when the pressure/location of the baby while running made me have to pee urgently…lol! It’s not always easy to find a place for an emergency potty break while out running! I took up swimming after that, and it felt wonderful to be in a pool with my huge belly and swollen feet.

Congratulations!! Here’s to a healthy and happy pregnancy!

My heart melted when I read that you’re having a baby…you are absolutely adorable (especially after seeing your accent vlog – you’re voice and demeanor is so sweet and cute) and you and your hubby will make excellent parents. My hubby and I are going to start trying this summer so I’m very excited to follow you along this journey! Congrats again and I’m very happy for you :)
