I get pretty upset when he does this I don't know what he gets out of it to be honest. He bring me the toy pushes it to me with his nose then gets in the position with his but up in the air. Is this a bad thing or normal for puppies?

Dog play it mostly about establishing pack dominance. In this case he's inviting you to a contest where the winner ends up with the ball.
If you want a well behaved dog you need to establish that you are dominant in his mind. Always win such games and don't play if you can't, feed them after you eat etc & etc.
If you don't give a dog clear signals of your dominance that a dog's instinct recognizes they will misbehave because one of a dog's strongest instincts is there must be a clear pack leader and if it isn't you it must be him and he doesn't know what he's doing because he's only a dog for christsake.
This can make him neurotic.1

He is just Enjoying'Brings his ball to me' @candygurl25 and Wants to Continue Playing and Swaying.
I think it so cute when a pup or even a Big dog likes to play Catch, Back and Forth and End up Tiring you right out.
Do not put him in the Doghouse, He is adorable and at least he loves to Play.
Good luck. x0
