Still here

Wow, it's been a LONG time! I don't know why I haven't blogged anymore. I guess I feel like facebook is essentially the same thing and just about everyone I know is on it. It seems pointless to do double everything. But, just incase someone out there is still reading this-- here is what we've been up to the past 2 months.

Our cousins Jason and Debbie gave Miles a bike for Easter. He has perfected his balance bike so we thought adding pedals would be simple. Not so much. He can't make the connection that it's the same thing- just with pedals. One of these days!
We have some of the best neighbors ever! There are several moms on our street, all with kids Miles age, and all stay at home Moms. These girls are so sweet that they threw me a baby shower last week. 3 months ago I didn't even know them. I just love military families and their open arms. We had a BBQ last week because one of the girls moved away (to LA- not too far). Miles really enjoys these kids. His best buddy is the little guy in the orange.
Our new pool. Unfortunately it has stayed pretty chilly here! If it does make it to the 70's then it's the wind that keeps the pool away. We were told that last summer was super chilly until October and then the whole winter was in the 80's. I'm hoping for the opposite this summer, but then again- CA houses do not have AC. We'll see.

Oh my OVER this pregnancy I am. We have just a little over 3 weeks to go. Brad and I watched Miles' birth video last night. I don't know why I did that to myself. Never watch your own birth video when you're about to give birth...Ignorance is bliss. Now I just look like a deer in headlights.
On another note, Brad is scheduled to be in the field for 2 weeks RIGHT when I'm due. This will be interesting. They are not letting him out until I go into labor or until the 20th (my induction date.) The interesting part is that the "field" is always some crazy, remote, far-away location where the guys get no phone signal (not that they're allowed to have phones). Also, the "field" is a place where cars, showers, hand-washing, toilets, etc. do not exist. It's all baby-wipes and sleeping bags. Because I tend to think worst case scenario I am imagining Brad not getting the message until it's almost too late, him rushing to the hospital and showing up to the delivery room looking like a homeless person. I guess it's better than him not being there at all!

Otherwise June 20th is the big day for us! 7am CA time. I will be 39 weeks. Our Dr is letting me go a week early for the simple fact that if left to chance Brad could (once again) not be there since he's leaving for 29 Palms the first week of July. I also, selfishly, want to go to MI this summer and I think that flying with a 5 week old sounds so much better than a 4 week old. It's all still up in the air though.

36 weeks- almost full term!
