me. The shower was just amazing. Dear friends and family came from all over to celebrate this new life in the
making. We dined on sandwiches and cupcakes and shared a ton of laughs. The boy and I were spoiled with lots of good gifts too! Throughout the trip, Baby Boy was right along for the ride; he kicked the most during eating sessions at In-n-Out (ahem, California Boy), Becker's Bakery, my many bike rides, and of course at bed time. I so enjoy feeling his little movements. It’s a lovely reminder that he is there, alive and well, and getting very big.
This is where he’s at this week….
Baby Boy is about the size of a papaya and almost a pound! He is getting into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12- 14 hours a day.. and he makes it known when he is awake! I’m able to eat and exercise again, which is great. I was able to indulge in my favorite past-time, bike riding on the strand.. soundtrack courtesy of Tom Petty! There is something about the wind and salt air in your face. It's just magic. Does a body good. And I am sleeping like a rock at the end of every day. Last night, Albin and I read the boy a children’s book, Petite Rouge- courtesy of my friend Emily (we loved the book, a spin on Little Red Riding Hood, with a Cajun twist.. AWESOME), and then tried to watch a movie. I was out cold by nine.. might have even drooled on my sweet husband’s shoulder. Hey! I just got back from California…those airports and plane rides are tiring for anyone.
More photos of the shower to follow. But here I am at Breakwall, winded from a bike ride with my Mom, and feeling huge as ever!
