Birthday/Babymoon in Big Sur

For the long weekend we decided to do some celebrating. Since Valentine's just passed, my 28th birthday was on President's Day and we've got the arrival of our little guy in a few months...felt like we had a lot to celebrate. We packed up the car, unplugged from technology and headed to Big Sur. We've always wanted to go. And standing next to a Redwood has been on my bucket list since I first learned they existed. It was AWESOME. I still can't believe how many amazingly beautiful natural creations are shoved into a relatively small stretch of land. It went by way too fast, but I'm already looking forward to going back some day. Highlight of the trip was finding a random path off the highway to walk down, sit among wildflowers, eat sandwiches, laugh about what's to come in parenthood and watch the sunset. We took a million pics. Here are a few of my faves.

boy oh boy

Our big news's a boy! I kinda had a feeling it was. I switched to thinking it was a girl for a little bit. But something inside me (maybe my son) kept saying "you know it's a boy." And we are thrilled. I immediately bought up an unnecessary amount of boy's clothes. I headed to the fabric store and went bananas for all things woodland/adventure/baby boy. I've also jumped back onto my sewing machine and started with the blankets, burp cloths and quilts. I can't help myself. I'm so excited for his tiny fingers that are sure to smear dirt and paint all over my walls. I can't wait for train sets and camping in the yard and discovering icky bugs in the woods. This is getting a little sappy...but instead of paying attention to the traffic ahead of me on the road, I'm more likely to be day dreaming like this these days. Since I'm into it...thought I'd share a little boy world.
