Blessing Day

Yesterday we blessed Jax. It was a WONDERFUL day! Chase did such an awesome job. Jax didn’t exactly look like your typical blessed newborn. He was about twice the normal size. Usually after the baby is blessed the fragile, little newborn is lifted up with full support. That was not the case with Jax. We waited a little longer than normal to bless Jax because we wanted Chase’s grandparents, who were in Europe last month, to be able to come. Jax was about a month older than average on his blessing day. So, after the blessing, Chase held Jax up to be shown and that big boy of mine held his own head up to check out the congregation! What a little cutie. Also, Jax was wearing a size 6 months blessing outfit…and you better believe it was snug.

Jax must have known that it was his big day because he usually sleeps through most of Sacrament. But, yesterday he was awake and alert ready to be blessed. Then, of course, he politely fell asleep after we were done blessing him. He woke up to play toward the end and giggled out loud through the whole closing prayer. Would his mom please teach him to be reverent?!! ☺

After the blessing my mom hosted a wonderful luncheon at her house. There were quite a few people there and the food was wonderful. My mother-in-law, Jana, brought BEAUTIFUL looking food (as always) and my mom had every delicious thing our hungry bellies could have ever imagined. It was delicious.

Yesterday was such a perfect day. I swear that I should be pregnant with how emotional I am at events like these. But, don’t worry. I’m not quite yet…at least not that I know of. It was so sweet to see my little baby receive a blessing from his daddy. We are so glad that we have such awesome, supportive families who drove long distance – Idaho, Nevada, Helper, and Price – to come share this day with us. We are also glad that we have so much family close by who came to support. Thank you so much to everyone who came. We appreciate it so much.

What a little stud! He looks super cute. I can't wait to take a pic with our two boys together. It is crazy that they are only a week apart. Where did you get his blessing outfit? I need to start looking...

Haha! Maybe his wacky aunt Jacque shouldn't tickle him the entire time during the closing prayer! haha! I'm sorry. I just know i will be such a bad influence on him!jk. He really was so cute yesterday! It was fun to see your family too! I had a chance to talk to Amber in the hall, she is so nice! Anyway. It was a wonderful day and the food was amazing!(now, no more good grub for us. We've only got like 3 months!)Chase's blessing was great! I'm glad you had such a great blessing day!

That is really weird. I didn't get the invite, but seriously don't worry. I was just joking with you. I hope that the day was great!!

I'm so sad we missed the blessing-- St. George was totally not worth it! But, you invitation & picture of Jax was darling and we really enjoyed looking at it while he was being blessed, so we were basically there, right?
