I hate it that I am not able to go to Oz and Brett's baseball games yet. If they were a little closer I would for sure be at some of them. Dad usually calls after the games to tell me what happened during the game. It sounds like Oz has been playing shortstop again this year and is also doing some pitching. I think he did a little pitching last year too. Dad says he has had some good plays and is hitting the ball well. Brett is playing left field and also doing some pitching. They played a double header tonight agaisnt Bishop Garrigan and the first game Brett got his first official start as pitcher. Dad said he thought he was a little nervous and the game started out we were down 9-0 but ended up coming back to win 13-9. Brett ended up pitching the whole game. Dad said once he started to settle down a little and everyone else started making plays, we got back in the game and Brett was fired up! I so wish I could of seen that! I am so proud of him!!! The second game we ended up winning 4-3. So with this being the first week of baseball I would say from what I have heard they are not doing to bad. Sometimes it takes a few games to get everything figured out and everyone playing together! If the boys are going to be doing some pitching this year I am going to be even more nervous, you all know how I get at games. I don't think either of the boy's really did any pitching growing up or did much in the past couple years so I am excited to see them pitch once I can make it to some games!! I believe after tonight there record is 3-2 and they still have games Friday night and Saturday.

Baby Appointment

Well today was our 38 week checkup and doc said everything is great so we DON'T have to go back for a checkup early next week...just c-section on Friday..YAY!! My blood pressure was good and I am swelling still but last appointment I didn't gain any weight and this apointment I gained just 1 pound so doc is not so concerned about the swelling. I measured today at almost 39 weeks so nurse said I am now a little ahead but it's obviously because this baby is going to be a BIG baby! I am measuring a little early but we are still going with June 5th as the big day and not any sooner unless I go into labor! Doc had us do a stress test today and baby was not under any stress and heartbeat was great! Well that's all I have to report today!

Memorial Day weekend was pretty quiet around our house. Brad had to work all weekend so Camden and I just hung out around the house and relaxed. We did run up to the lakes Sunday afternoon to meet my Gma and Gpa Angle. My mom bought us a new playpen so Gma and Gpa brought that over to the lakes when they came over for the weekend. After visiting for awhile we headed back home. Sunday night after Brad got off work we went to our friend's house for a bonfire. It was fun to get together with a bunch of our friend's and Cam had fun running wild with all the kids. It was fun even though we didn't get home until 1:30 in the morning and I was SO tired!! At least all the kids were passed out way before that. After sleeping in Monday morning we got up and did some yard work and finished hanging the decor in the nursery. I think we are officially ready for this baby to get here. We go back to the doctor tomorrow so I will report more on how that goes later. We are hoping it's our last appointment since a week from this Friday is the c-section but we will have to see I guess!

Doc appointment

Holy Moly...2 weeks from Friday and the big day will be here! We had another apointment today and again everything went well. The only concern is that it is getting hot out and my legs and feet are starting to swell alot! I am going to continue to work this next week since I only work about 3-4 hours a day and next Thursday's appointment we will see how the swelling is doing and go from there. At least with this pregnancy I have had no protein and blood pressure has been great! I think we are all ready for this to be done and Camden is beyond excited! He has been a great helper and wants to help us when we are getting things ready for the baby to be here. He just told me the other day he wants a sister now so he can find her a good boyfriend when she grows up...the things he will say!! On that subject.....Camden came home from daycare the other day and Brad asked him what he did at daycare and he said I just played all day with my friends. Well then he proceeded to also tell us when they were playing outside he kissed both of his girlfriends in the little playhouse thing they have outside! He also told us alot of other boys kissed the girls and the teachers didn't see them do it! I told him he was to young to be kissing girls and he said "Mom, 4 year olds can do that you know!" Oh geez!!!!
Well hope everyone has a good rest of the week!

Keeping warm at the track meet
Not sure what he was looking at....


Our weekend seemed to be pretty busy and went by pretty fast. Friday night we headed to Laurens for Ozzie's district track meet. It was freezing and rainy throughout the whole night. I hate it that it is on Friday nights now instead of Saturdays. The track meet started at 4:00 and we assumed Oz would be doing the long jump and we got there a little before 4:00 and they decided to not have Oz do the long jump due to his knee hurting him. He was running in the
4x100 and 4x200, one of his races was right in the middle and one was the very last race! So we got to sit for awhile until he was running and on top of that after all field events there is a mandatory 45 minute break! So he did not end up running the 4x200 until about got to be SOOO long! The 4x200 started off great and we were in first place at the beginning until the baton was dropped during an exchange....whew, Oz didn't have anything to with the dropped baton. So we got to see Oz run even though they were disqualified. We ended up not staying until the last race because it already was getting to be a long night! Well now it's on to baseball.....YES I can't wait! Baseball by far is my favorite sport to watch them play! I have alot of the summer off so I am hoping to make it to alot of games, pending my recovery from having the baby!
Saturday morning Brad ran uptown to get some things he needed and ended up coming home with the rug doctor. We wanted to have someone come and do it for us but the guy who usually does it is so busy this time of year it probably would of been another month before he got here. So Brad cleaned the carpets himself and it actually did a pretty good job! So that is just another thing to cross off of my to do list! Saturday night we had to go to a retirement party for one of Brad's co-workers and Camden stayed home with Ashley. It was a fun night but I was so tired by the time we got home. Sunday we pretty much just relaxed the whole day. It was so dreary, cold, and windy so we didn't feel like doing much. Today is beautiful outside and sounds like the rest of the week is supose to be pretty nice too!

Tonight Camden and I had to run up to Brad's office to take him his uniforms so he could get them to the dry cleaners. We were getting into the durango and Camden said out of the blue "Mom do you have your license?" I said "It's in the house in my purse." He freaked out and said "Mom, you have to have your license to drive the durango, if you don't you will get in big trouble from the cops!" He was so serious when saying it and had a look of worry on his face! I have no idea where he got that from! Yeah I am bad and I rarely have my license with me when I am driving just in town...I guess my son is already watching out for me:)
Well now we are officially down to going weekly to the doctor. I will be 36 weeks on Friday and we have just over 3 weeks left to go...thank goodness! Today's checkup went well. The heartbeat was good and I am still getting some fluid but blood pressure is good and I actually lost weight since last checkup so doc is still not concerned about the fluid and swelling. This last month I think is going to kill me. I am so uncomfortable..I never was this uncomfortable in the last couple months with Camden...but I guess that's why they say every pregnancy is different! Well that's about it for now! Hope everyone is having a good week!

We didn't do a whole lot this weekend and of course the weekend went by so fast! Brad had to work overnights the whole weekend so it was pretty much just Cam and I hanging out. We ran to Spencer yesterday to get some flowers to plant. Most years I buy alot of flowers and this year I decided I wasn't going too...I am sure I will be back to it next year!! I also have a couple bushes in my front yard that are not coming back for some reason this year so I need to find something to replace them.

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mother's!! I love being a mother and I have a pretty great son! We didn't do a whole lot today since Brad had to sleep most of the morning and then has to be back to work at 6 tonight. Brad and Camden made me a nice dinner and the rest of the afternoon we spent outside playing soccer, baseball, and just relaxing. As Camden was learning last week in school that it was going to be Mother's day this weekend he kept asking me why we don't call it parent's day? After I explained it that there is a mother's day and father's day he realized why we don't call it parents day. He is so funny! Hope everyone enjoyed their special day!:)

Preschool Concert

Doing actions to a song
Dad and Cam before the concert

Introducing himself

"Why do I have to take my picture again, let's just go to the concert!"

Last night we had Camden's Spring concert. It's hard to believe he is done with his first year of Preschool next Wednesday! It was such a cute concert last night with all the songs they sang! He officially got his award that he passed 3 year old preschool so it's onto 4 year old preschool next fall:) He had a good year, learned alot, and I could see improvement throughout the year on certain skills.He loved bringing home his weekly papers to show me what he had learned or what they were studying about that week.I told him that preschool is over next week for the summer and he wasn't to happy about that! He loves to learn and I am sure this summer I will still see him at his desk at home writing his letters, numbers, or doing his homework as he calls it!

Clip of a song

This video is sideways for awhile, then I realized it and flipped my camera in the middle of it. I don't know how to rotate it the right way after I download them!HA! I just need to remember to tape the right way!

Busy Weekend

Here it is...I look crabby in this pic but I really wasn't....I think I wasn't so thrilled about taking a picture of myself! Just over 4 weeks left...I swear there is no more room for this baby to get bigger! Everybody keeps saying "You are going to have a big baby!" I want to say "Yeah ya think so, I already figured that out!"

The weekend of course went by so fast! Friday Brad and Camden headed back to Armstrong to Brad's parents for the night. He went back home because Saturday morning he had to go pick up my dad's new lab we found for him in Minnesota. It is a black lab and is almost 10 weeks old. I talked to dad and he said they haven't picked out a name yet but the pup is fitting in just fine around the farm! I guess Brett and the pup were laying in the grass napping yesterday afternoon! I decided I wasn't going to make the trip home this past weekend as I wanted to get some things done around the house and it was nice to have some time to myself. My friend Anne and I went out Friday night for awhile, which was long overdue!! Saturday I got up and went to Spencer and did some shopping. After shopping I came home and did some cleaning. Brad and Camden came home later that afternoon. We pretty much spent the rest of Saturday outside doing yard work because it was so nice out! Sunday we went to church and out for brunch with Anne, Mike, and their kids. After visiting for awhile we headed to Spencer to get a new dresser for the nursery and some fishing supplies. After we got home we went down to Paullina to Mill Creek to do some fishing. We had a couple bites but didn't catch anything. I don't think anybody was catching anything yesterday. After fishing and playing at the park we headed home to spend a little more time outside. It was such a nice weekend to spend time outside!
