Brayden's Blessing Day

Yesterday we had Brayden's baby blessing!  One of those days that I've always imagined...  Hard to believe it's already come and gone!  And it couldn't have gone more smoothly!  Most of our families were able to come and participate.  I was a little nervous before sacrament started because he was getting a little tired and fussy.  But he ended up falling asleep right before Brandon took him up to the front.  He didn't make a peep during the blessing! 

Looking handsome in the outfit Memaw made!  :)
I'm so grateful that his Daddy was able to give him this special blessing!  And I'm also grateful that his PawPaw Richardson, Grandad, Grandpa, Uncle Byron, Uncle Jared, Uncle Joel, Uncle Garrett, and Bishop Masten could participate too!  I noticed in the blessing that Brayden was blessed to have many good desires... a desire to gain a testimony, desire to serve a mission and be married in the temple.  He was also blessed to have great faith.

We really loved having everyone together for this special event!  Thanks everyone!  :)

2 Months Old!

I can't believe my little boy is already 2 months old!! Where does the time go? I have enjoyed every minute with him, and now that I'm back at work, my time with him is even more precious! Brandon is amazingly helpful and does pretty much everything around the house so I can just sit and hold him after work.

He's so cute!!!
I just want to kiss those chubby cheeks and lips all day!

He weighs 12 lbs. 4 oz. and is 23.5" long!  This month he has learned how to smile and talk!  Of course, he's just making little noises but it's cute to see him get excited and try to communicate.

I absolutely love this pic!  Can see the light in his eyes!?
He's been doing great at church, and likes to dress like daddy! ;)  I don't think I've been able to make it through sacrament one time, but he's such a good baby and normally sleeps through Primary.  My weekends are very special to me since I don't normally get to spend time with him during the day, so I tote him down to Primary with my handy-dandy moby wrap!

Do you see any resemblance?

Right now, he's absolutely loving his bouncy seat!  It vibrates and plays music and comes is very helpful when I'm trying to get ready for work or church!  However, he absolutely hates his car seat (see pic below)!  *sigh*  It's very difficult to go anywhere with him unless he is in a deep sleep because when he realizes that he can't stretch, he has a meltdown!  Talk about stress me out (only because I hate when he cries)!

Anyway, we're loving life with our super cute dude and look forward to his new developments! :) 

Trying out the new Moby wrap!

Quite an inquisitive look :)
