After over a year of trying, we learned in late January that we could expect to have a little Baby Garnish in October 2011!  This exciting news has already changed our lives in ways I couldn’t ever imagine.

Since you’re expecting, I thought I’d share something that many parents don’t know.

Circumcision is unnecessary and harmful. Your child will thank you for researching this before taking an irreversible destructive step (although hundreds of thousands of men are enduring a tedious mutli-year process of non-surgical foreskin restoration to undo some of the sexual damage).

The best research – if you can devote 20 minutes to learning about something that will affect him for LIFE – is to go to YouTube and watch the medical video Functions of the Foreskin.

The rate circumcision is now below 50/50 for US infants, and 95% of non-Muslim families worldwide don’t circumcise.

Good Luck,

Hi Emily, do you remember what the name of the app was that you used on your iPad to help you track Cullen’s growth and development while pregnant? Thanks

It was a Pampers Diapers app, haha!

Hi Emily!

I have loved reading your blog for the past couple of years. I’ve especially loved going on your pregnancy journeys with you! I have to ask, where did you find some of your pregnancy clothing staples? I feel like it’s so hard to find cute, fashionable clothes for pregnant women!

Thank you!
