    A Look Back.

You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby.

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

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.

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.


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…

Wow that is WONDERFUL news Emily! We are due around the same time! My due date is October 9th and I am 10 weeks along! Isn’t it so exciting? Have you been feeling nauseous and extremley tiered? That is how I felt in week 6 & 7 but luckily the nausea is gone but I’m still dead tiered all of the time! Can’t wait to follow you on this journey! :)

Congratulations!! I love your blog and I’ve never commented but I just had to when I read the news! 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 :)
