Blessed.


Everett's blessing day was great, my family was here from Canada, Ben's dad and family came all the way from New Hampshire, and Ben's mom and family were all here from St.George.  It was so so nice to have so much family here.

In hindsight, we should have done the blessing in our home rather than at church because 8:30am church with a newborn who doesn't sleep and trying to get everyone ready was pretty chaotic.  I realized once we got to the church that he needed/wanted to eat and I was not wearing a breastfeeding friendly outfit. Mom Fail.  So there was definitely some maneuvering and help needed in the mother's lounge from my Mother in Law.  My biggest worry was that Everett would scream during the whole blessing; I was out in the hall with him crying right until the second they announced us.

HE DIDN'T CRY!  He didn't make a peep the whole blessing.  Ben gave a really special and humble blessing and I felt so grateful for both my boys that day.  Everyone said that he just stared up at Ben the whole time.

We had a little lunch afterward that my aunt and uncle were nice enough to host at their house rather than our little apartment.  Delicious food, gorgeous weather and surrounded by family and friends.  It was a really perfect Sunday even despite the 8:30am church.

Everett is adorable! That has to make up for all of the lost sleep, I'm sure. ;)
