4 months.

What we love about Ro at 4 months:
  • He has learned to raspberry. It was really cool for about a week and now he isn't as impressed with himself so we only see it occasionally.
  • He is on an official nap schedule thanks to his Aunties who have coached momma. They vary depending on when he wakes up...sometimes it's before 7 am ugh...but usually they take place from 9-11, 1-3, and a short cat nap during dindin.
  • Ro loves going to bed early. He crashed at about 7 every night.
  • Who needs an alarm clock??! Not us! Rowey wakes us up every morning with his bowels. Yes, he poos right on cue every morning! It's loverly.
  • Lately, I have found him sleeping on his tummy during nap time so...
  • he can ROLL all the way over! Yea! Dr. Kendall taught momma how to practice rolling with Rowey and he caught on right away...he even rolled on the Dr.'s table after she showed me a few times. Guess he is a quick learner. :) The rolling is made especially cute when he works so hard he toots. ;)
  • He is full on teething! GoolllllyGeeeeeee! We do a little night time ora-gel at night and that helps him sleep a ton. We have teethers galore, but Ro's favorite has turned out to be mommy's chin and jaw bone. Very weird, but kinda funny.
  • Ro loves to sing as he is going to bed. I usually rock him for a few minutes and he sings away. So sweet.
  • He LOVES Daddy! He is at that age where it's not ALL about mommy anymore, and has found that his papa is quite lovely. He loves when Daddy sings to him, throws him in the air and beat boxes. He loves the beat boxing which is hilarious.
  • Ro is a quiet little bug in public...unless he is hungry...he loves to just stare at trees, people, animals, whatever!
  • He had a couple really long hairs on his head. They are like 3 inches longer than any other hairs. Danny threatens to cut them, but I think we'll keep them a little longer!
  • He loves when we can him by wacky names. His favorites are Rosen Burgerstein and Chubby Choochoos. He laughs and laughs and laughs.
  • He is a tall boy. 98% right now...maybe one day he'll be a basketball/volleyball player...or just a really tall musician. Whatever he chooses will be grrrrrreat! :)
We just love this boy to pieces. He is a bright shining light in our lives and probably the greatest joy we have ever known. He has brought Danny and I even closer together, united in the cause of raising our son. I often say I'd have 10 if they were all like Rowey...but I won't!!

Ro's pillow arm chair. It only took one accident a month ago for us to realize he can no longer be propped on the bed without support!
Out to eat at Communal in Provo. The whole menu was made from local food and tasted delicious. It was a treat!!!

In love.

I am in love with two men...there I said it...the first is a sweet boy who drools on me, cries out for a snuggle, and creates lots of messes :/, the others name is Rowan. Oh JUST jokin'! DannyBoy dosen't cry, just whimpers. ;) My sweet husband is quite a guy I tell 'ya. I held his hand in Church on Sunday and was quite alarmed by what I found. On his palms, under each finger is a big callus...I almost cried. Carpet cleaners have it rough. He is such a hard worker and although he doesn't always find joy in scrubbing rugs around the valley, he does it for our family. I think sacrifice is the mark of a true man...or woman...D is a true man. He is also turning out to be quite the father. Ro loves him with a capital L. After a long day with Mommy, Daddy is a sight for sore eyes for our little Buggy. He will just stare at Daddy's face and after registering it for a few seconds, will let out a whole body smile. You know that smile...his arms will come up to his face, head shrinks down to his shoulders and his legs ball up then kick out with joy. That is the mark of true love. I love these 2 boys and find such peace knowing that I get to spend each day with them. Sometimes I get annoyed with school, homework, the gym, and work stealing Danny away, but when I find myself in a quiet moment I always think about how blessed I am to have an adoring DannyBoy and a sweet, healthy, cute-as-all-get-out Rowey. I am a lucky- lovin' 2 men- lady.
