Four months!

Dear Rowan,
You turned four months old on March 29th! You continue to light up our world and grow cuter by the day. It's amazing to see how much you develop each month! You reached some exciting milestones over the past few weeks and we are so proud. You are the best baby in the world! We could not ask for a sweeter boy.

Once you turned three months old, we moved you to your crib. I was so nervous, but you did great! You didn't even seem to know you were sleeping in a new spot. Also, right after you turned three months, I set you on your tummy and you flipped right over. You did it another time as well. And when you turned 15 weeks you rolled from your back to your tummy. I saw it finally click when you were working on it and you've been rolling back to tummy constantly ever since. You don't like to roll the other way (tummy to back), but you flip right onto your tummy now if we put you on your back. What a big, strong boy you are! We had to stop swaddling you cold turkey the day you mastered this trick because I tried the swaddle during a nap time and you were able to roll over swaddled. You did not miss your swaddle at all and you slept great! Your sleeping really improved after we got rid of the swaddle. We were so thankful for a great transition! You do like to roll onto your tummy while you're sleeping and sometimes wake yourself up, but I just flip you back and you go back to sleep. Otherwise, you look like a little turtle! You began sleeping through the night during this time with very few wakeups.

You are still loving your hands! You love to look at them, put them in your mouth and stare at them. You also are starting to play with toys! You love the toys on your playmat, your red ball, your links and your puppy lovey and you hold onto them and check them out. You have started giggling and it's the cutest thing ever! You still smile all the time. You are becoming a mama's boy and I secretly love it! You love Daddy too, but you look for me and watch me if someone else holds you. You also love to smile in the mirror when you're taking your bath or when I hold you up in the mirror to brush your hair. You are just too cute!

We took you to see the Easter bunny and you did so well! You sat in a little basket next to him and smiled for the camera. You also went to your first golf tournament. You did great until the end when we had to rush you out when you started to cry. No worries, your mommy did the same thing when she was a baby and went to a golf tournament! You looked so cute in your golf outfit. You also went to a mommy and me movie with our playgroup and it was a lot of fun. You did great and seemed to like being in the movie theater. You helped me celebrate my birthday on March 25th and I dressed you up in the cutest bubble and we went out to dinner at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It was the best birthday getting to celebrate with you!
