Blessing

We blessed our handsome little boy on Sunday.  
(Here we were blessing Claire 2.5 years ago, where we got a whole lot more pictures than we did this time #secondchild)

Someone dropped these off the night before for us, and we have no idea who it was! Thank you SO MUCH whoever you are!! 

With 12:30 church, nap time gets tricky, so on this important day, we put Claire down at 11:20, hoping she'd get a good 2 hours before sacrament meeting at 2:00.  In the hustle of waking her up and getting her ready (through her first ever full-out tantrum), Ben showed up to church wearing his slippers!!

Luckily, my brother James came to the rescue and ran home to get his regular shoes:)

Alex was so good and Ben did a great job -- blessing him to be a man of faith and courage and to stand up for all that is right!


The Priesthood holders that were in the circle (minus my Uncle Jed)

Great-Grandma and Grandpa Johansen:


He is almost 3 months old and couldn't be cuter! 



He started sleeping 6 hours at 6 weeks old and at about 10 weeks old, started sleeping 8 hours!  I love it. I started running again (dang half marathon in May) and feel so alive with all the sleep I'm spoiled with.  He still eats every 2 hours during the day, but is a happy, alert and content baby so I can't complain!  We love our Alex!
