Fun with Camo

It is crazy to think that in just a couple weeks Camo will not be the only child. I have enjoyed my one on one time with him so much in the last couple years. I am trying to soak in as much time with him as I can before the baby comes. He is such a fun, fearless little boy and I love to watch him get excited about things. Today we decided to try out Oaks Park Amusement Park. They have a preschool day in which they let kids 6 and under ride all the kiddie rides. Camo was so brave and went on everything. He even went on the roller coaster which I was really surprised about. Don't worry, my friend Kristin took him on it so I wouldn't go into labor while we were there. I think his favorite was the motorcycle ride.  Lately I have been trying to find fun things for Camo to do and I will say that we will definitely be coming back to this park. He loved it! We have been exploring so many fun things to do in Wilsonville as well and I will hopefully post some more activities that we do.  Here are some pictures from Oaks Park.

Full Term

I can't believe I am 37 weeks along which is full term. I am surprised that I am still feeling pretty good. I am starting to get a bit anxious about having two kids. Did anyone else feel that way when they went from one to two? I often wonder if I have enough love to give to two children. I am going to try really hard to update on Camo and the new baby. My doctor appointment went well. Last week he checked me nothing was going on. This week I am 1 1/2 to 2 centimeters dilated. I don't really know if that means anything considering a woman can be dilated at a 2 for a couple weeks before having the baby. That's fine if he stays put for a bit because I can enjoy Camo these last few weeks. I have gained about 25 pounds so far which is about what I gained with Camo at this point. I am measuring about 38 inches around my waist. I am having quite a few more braxton hick contractions, but so far they aren't very painful. I am getting very tired throughout the day and am so grateful Camo still takes a nap. I usually end up napping when he does so that I have the energy to train a few of my clients in the evening.   Believe it or not I am still SLOWLY jogging 3 miles a day. I really hope we get our house all set up before this baby comes. It is still a bit chaotic from the move. I will update on how the move went and how we are settling in our new community. Here are some updated pictures. I just got back from a run so I don't look the best.

Where do I get the motivation to pack up a house at 35 weeks pregnant? That's why I am on here writing a blog and not packing. I have no motivation. We are moving in exactly a week and I have maybe packed 5 boxes of stuff.  The interesting thing is,  is that I had the motivation to get up this morning and run 3 miles so I really don't have an excuse according to J. He thinks if I can still run 3 miles at 35 weeks then I can do anything pregnant. He is probably right. So I am going to try to be productive and fill up all those empty boxes sitting in my living room. Hopefully I don't go into labor before we get settled in our new place.

I guess I've packed a few:)

Pool Day

We have been waiting so patiently for our pool to open up for the summer. When it finally did we decided to take advantage of it even though it was overcast and not the best weather. That didn't stop us from having a blast with our friends. Camo is such a littly fishy. I can't believe how brave he is. I have to keep floaties on him because he will jump in the water all by himself. Here are some pictures from the day. I will try to post videos of Camo jumping in soon.

34 Weeks

I can't believe that I am 34 weeks. This pregnancy has gone by crazy fast. Probably because I am preoccupied with taking care of a two year old. I am starting to get really uncomfortable at this point. I really don't sleep very well at night. I can't seem to find a good position to sleep in. It's strange because I don't remember having this problem when I was pregnant with Camo. It might be because at delivery of Camo at 39 weeks is how big I feel right now at 34 weeks. I am still able to jog my 3 miles a day which has been really fun. It's nice to get out in the jogging stroller with Camo and listen to him ask me so many questions. A few days ago at my last doctors appointment I weighed 148. I have gained about 23 pounds. I am 37 inches around my waist. I wished I would have measured my stomach when I was pregnant with Camo because it would be interesting to see the difference. At my next appointment in a week and a half my doctor will check to see if I am dilated. I am really excited to meet this little guy in hopefully 5 or 6 weeks.  I want to know if he will look like me considering Camo looks identical to J. This is very brave of me to post this picture of me in a bathing suit at 34 weeks.
