Jax Blessing

Jax in his outfit on his blessing blanket that my Grandma Lamb makes for the new babies. After I got the twins dressed today. I tried to get pictures.
They were more interested in looking through their church books.
Tonight in our comfy clothes...
Grandpa Rand came to visit for Jax's Blessing.

Getting this baby blessed has been a bit of an ordeal for me. In September I called my brother and asked that he travel to Texas when we bless this new baby. A couple weeks after he made arrangements for him and his wife to come, including someone to watch their 4 kids. We find out that the first Sunday in February is Stake conference. Didn't really work for them to switch to this weekend. But I'm excited I still get to see them next weekend.
We got everyone dressed in their Sunday best. Something we do every week. But today I felt like more work was involved. I bathed Jax and got him dressed in his special clothes. But as the mom I really wanted to HEAR my child's blessing...Today I didn't. Between the microphone being to soft and the twins noise I heard a few words here and there. For all I know Seth gave him an entirely different name. Which I know he wouldn't...that's not the point. I didn't hear the twins blessings very well either as the one that wasn't being blessed was fussing. But I did hear their names and a good portion of their blessings...today I was there but I missed what was important. I know I have complained to my family about this all evening and Seth has tried very hard to correct it. I know its over and there is really nothing I can do to fix it. Seth his written down what he remembers for me. I thought as I was sitting there shushing my kids and hearing nothing that surely they were going to stop, turn up the volume and start again. I can pause my dvr and rewind when I missed something on my favorite tv episode, why not in real life? Then it was over everyone was sitting down and I was....disappointed.

Jax 2 month stats

Can't believe my baby is already 2 months old...wearing 6 month clothes. He has such a long body and little chicken legs...love my boy.
Seems we make big boys around here.
Jax's stats are 24 inches long and 13 lbs 5 ounces. Weston was the same length and only 4 ounces heavier at this age. Jax smiles often and normally hangs out and looks around when awake. When he gets cranky all it usually takes is me wrapping him up and rocking...he quickly calms down and falls asleep.
We are blessing him on Sunday, wish all our family could be here for this special occasion!

Hats

We have found a new love for hats lately...

Today the twins found their winter hats. They brought them to me to put them on.
The other day it was dads hats.
No hat....just cute.

When I finally figured that Sami saying "baby hat" meant she was trying to put a hat on Jax as his slept in his bouncy chair, I put an end to the hat play and put the twins down for their nap.
Don't judge me because they are still in their pj's at nap time. I'm still in my pj's too!

Jax and me

I love Fridays when Seth is home. Jax sleeping for 7 hours and then getting to go back to sleep for 3 more hours helps too. Jax is starting to smile.
