    A Look Back.



On The Day You Were Born…

On the day you were born, the sky was still dark from early morning, and you made your grand debut at 5:17am.

George Winston piano music played quietly in the background, while a team of people eagerly awaited your arrival.

You put up quite the fight coming into the world, but eventually all 8 pounds 6 ounces of you came out, and your mom and dad immediately realized that true love started today.

Welcome to the world, Cullen Malone.

Did you name him after the vampire, or is Cullen a family name? Congrats on the adorable bundle of joy!

[Reply]

Leah Reply:

They actually never have seen the Twilight films. (Emily explained on Twitter)

[Reply]

Christina @ Just Running Reply:

I don’t tweet, so thanks! I haven’t seen Twilight either, but I do know Cullen is a vampire (right?).

[Reply]

Leah Reply:

Yeah, I only Tweet for work but there are various people where I check their Twitter pages on a regular basis. Oddly, enough even though I’m a longtime reader of this blog I only started checking Emily’s Twitter when she was in labor. :)

Anyway, the way I understand it is Cullen is an Irish name. In the world of fiction, yes, the Cullens are vampires.

I tried to explain to one of my friends today how happy I am for you, and she just didn’t get it. “So you only know this woman through her food blog? And your this excited about her having a baby?”

Here’s the thing. Even though I’m not pregnant (and really have no desire to be pregnant anytime in the near future), I feel like I learned more about pregnancy through your weekly updates than I ever knew before. And even though there’s a good chance I’ll never meet you in “real life,” I feel like I know you because you invited me (and everyone else reading this blog) to take this deeply personal and long journey with you. I’m honored that I had the chance to see pregnancy through what I think is as close to a first-person perspective as you can get without actually experiencing it yourself.

I am absolutely THRILLED for you and Casey. I completely agree with what someone said earlier–you are the new definition of an endurance athlete! You are an incredible woman and you are going to be an amazing mom to Cullen. Congratulations one thousand and a half times over, Emily. You’re inspirational :)

Jerrica Reply:

First of all, Congratulations to the Malone family!

Secondly, my husband looks at me the same way every time I talk about something on her blog (which is daily)! I talk about her like I have known her for years but I truly feel like she appreciates that people from all over the world care enough to take time out of their day and read her journey.

Definitely one of the best looking baby boys I’ve ever seen.. and I’m absolutely not just saying that. So precious!

Pam C     at 11:04 pm

He’s not just newborn cute he’s seriously a beautiful baby!! What a perfect celebration for all you’ve done to get him, from difficulty becoming pregnant, remaining healthy and active and the morning sickness, and I’m sure you’re not soon to forget the 55 hours worth of effort! hehe

I love his name as well it flows so nicely with your last name. Unique but not weird :) I’m very happy for the whole garnish family and thank you for inviting us along on your journey. I’ve loved reading your posts and look forward to more.

Congratulations both of you! He’s beautiful. I’m a new reader to your blog (maybe for the past month or two) and I’ve so enjoyed reading about this pregnancy and your happy family. It was the first real look I had at someone’s whole pregnancy (I did some back-reading!). That video of the baby moving totally blew my mind. Now we can see who was wriggling around in there. Can’t wait to keep reading about this little guy :)

Emily, I definitely cried when reading/looking at the photos! I am so happy for you.

I am sad that the weekly pregnancy updates will be over. Maybe a weekly baby Cullen update? You know we would all love it.

Thank you for being so authentic with your writing and your experience. Each week I so looked forward to reading about how you were doing. And I’m overjoyed everything went so well. We’ve never met, but because of your genuine sharing, I feel like I know you. What a gift it is that you share with all of us, and that the world can be just that much more connected.

Welcome to the world, Baby Cullen! Do you know how many people are celebrating you today? :)
