baby kicks

our sweet baby girl is quite the kicker:) i absolutely LOVE feeling her squirm around in my belly.. it is by far the best part of being pregnant! this afternoon, i was lying on my bed with ella kate and i asked her if she wanted to feel the baby move. she put her sweet little hand on my belly and as soon as she did, she felt a very strong kick! the look on her face was priceless!!! she jerked her hand away quickly and i asked her if she wanted to feel it again. she slid off my bed saying, "no thank you, i think i need to go back downstairs now." it was obvious that she was totally freaked out by it:) i assured her, that feeling the baby move is one of the greatest blessings because that means that she is alive and healthy and that she will be here with us so soon. but she was so over it by now, that she sheepishly smiled and kept walking out of my bedroom:)

bits and pieces

how cute is this little man?? he just so happens to be one of the sweetest, well-mannered little guys that i have ever met:) he is so sweet and kind with his sisters and for the most part, he does whatever they tell him to do! ella kate has even taught him how to call her, "your highness." oh, and he found a black watch of mine with rhinestones all over it and has claimed it as his, "video watch". bless his heart, he wears that girly thing proudly everyday! maybe santa can bring him a boy watch for christmas:)
this little beauty went on a date with her daddy to see the new rapunzel movie "tangled", and immediately came home and asked if she could wear her hair straight so she could look more like a princess:) of course, i straightened it for her, but i am not ready for her to lose her curls just yet! she looks too grown up with straight hair, and it makes me sad how fast she REALLY is growing! ella kate has also had a time with severe chapped lips! it doesn't matter how much/often we apply chapstick, carmex, vasoline, lipgloss, aquafor.. you name it, her lips are always dry, cracked and peely:( bill and i joke with her about how her lips look like barabbas. (do you guys remember him from the movie, "passion of the christ?", well the one thing that stuck out to me when he was on screen, were his AWFUL lips!) now, ella kate will run to me, pointing to her lips and saying, "momma... i need some chapstick! these are barabbas again!!" hahaha:)and miley... sweet "miney" as she calls herself is growing up too fast! she is so much fun, and i have REALLY enjoyed her:) although she has been our slowest talker, she IS saying more and more english these days, and less "german":) she gives the best bear hugs and wraps her little arms so tight around your neck while saying, "i gotchoo momma! i gotchoo!" (i've got you!) she also is a terrible looker for lost things (just like her dad). i will ask her to go find her hairbow in her room and although it is laying on the floor in front of her, she will shrug her shoulders and say, "can't pine it!" (can't find it) she has REALLY enjoyed the christmas season so far. she loves christmas trees and christmas lights and says, "ohhh, so pitty!!" (so pretty) she also LOVES candy canes although she calls them "cane cannies" :) she is not a fan of santa claus and feels the need to tell us, "he not get me!" whenever she sees him in person or on tv:) oh, and one more funny thing that she has learned from her big brother and sister... whenever a toy commercial comes on tv and it is something that she likes, she screams VERY excitedly, "hey! i get my birday! dat miney birday!!" (i want that for my birthday) :) so cute!
i just thought this picture was cute:)i am so thankful for my sweet family!! i love these guy to pieces:)

role play

i am laughing so hard right now! ella kate and josiah are downstairs playing "bill and katie". i am not sure what 'bill' has done, but 'katie' is hollering at him and giving him the 3rd degree about something:) i go down there and see miley playing with them, so i ask her what her name is. she tells me, "sissy". (well with her 's' lisp, she really said, "thithy!" :)

19 weeks and we are having another....

GIRL:) i have never done one of these pregnancy surveys before, so i thought that i would give it a try:

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 19 Weeks
Size of baby: size of an apple!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: gained 6 lbs
Maternity Clothes: i can still wear my old jeans as long as i don't button them:) but i really need to invest in some good maternity jeans. all of our other babies were summer babies and i never really needed jeans..
Gender: sugar and spice and everything nice!!
Movement: if i am laying on my back, i feel her move a lot! bill felt her move for the first time last week:) still super exciting the 4th time around!!
Sleep: i am not as sleepy during the day as i have been, and i am sleeping GREAT at night:)
What I miss: hmm.. i miss being able to go places and walk around without getting so winded. i had to take several rests(squats) throughout toys r us the other night while christmas shopping.
Cravings: orange juice, pizza (specifically thin crust pepperoni from pizza hut!)
Symptoms: i have had some pretty bad cramping in my lower abdomen due to a lot of different things, but mainly b/c this is our 4th baby in 4 years and my body is just plain tired:)
Best Moment this week: finding out the sex!! although we were convinced it was a boy, we are super excited about another sweet, healthy girl and i am ready to start planning!!

it's beginning to look a lot like christmas...

well, atleast it is at the davis house:)
we put up our tree and other decorations last night and the babies LOVED every minute of it!! my grandma had given us several different manger scenes, so josiah, miley and ella kate could each go off to a corner and play with baby jesus all by themselves:)
ella kate decided to have santa claus and some snowmen watching her manger scene:)miley LOVED this little people nativity and cried when i wouldn't let her take baby jesus to bed with her:)
i love their stockings:)
getting started on the tree.. cheese!! you can see where miley decorated.. and which ornaments were her favorite to hang:)you can tell we had short helpers:)

ta-da! we had to do some rearranging when the babies went to bed.. but here is the finished product:)

they really love each other!

i am watching my niece, eve this morning and all 4 of the babies are playing downstairs with puzzles. i wasn't in the room when i heard this from josiah:
jos:"no, no baby eve. we don't take stuff from L-Kate. give it back to her and say you're sorry!"
no response from eve...
jos: "bay. bee. eve! i talkin' you! you need give it back to L-Kate wight now!"
still no response from eve..
jos(LOUDER): "eve dabis! (davis.. our last name) you not being sweet wight now!"
i don't think eve ever really responded, but josiah finally got over it and they are all playing together again:) it made me laugh so hard, because josiah, miley and ella kate can fight and bicker like cats and dogs, but if someone else from the "outside" is mean or unfair to one of them, the other one ALWAYS gets defensive and protective:)

when i grow up..

ella kate and josiah had a firefighter and his fire truck come and visit their school the other day. they were super excited and were trying tell me all about it when i picked them up, so i asked them if they wanted to be firefighters when they grew up. josiah smiled and said, "ohhhh! yes ma'am! i'mma be a fire-fire!!" ella kate then told me, "mom.. we have to wait and see what God wants us to be. but.... i really think that He wants me to be a mermaid... yeah... i think i'mma be a mermaid like ariel when i grow up!" the conversation then turned to me. ella kate asked me what i want to be when i grow up. i told her that i was probably just gonna be a mommy and a wife. wrong answer for her. she looked at me with disgust and said, "no, momma! what are you REALLY gonna be???" so i gave in and shared with her my childhood dream of wanting to be a snow cone lady. she liked that idea much better:)

look who is ready for christmas already:)

we had so much fun decorating gingerbread houses this year. all 3 of them were completely able to do it by themselves and they all were so proud of their masterpieces:)
look at this cute face:) she is so funny! she LOVES looking through the pictures from disney world and absolutely LOVES the princesses. she says their names so cute, too!
cinderella -"sih-lella"
sleeping beauty- "booty booty"
ariel (her favorite too. go figure.)- "ay-yel"
snow white- "no-why"
jasmine - jammin

boys.. or atleast josiah

since i never had a brother growing up, i didn't really know what to expect having baby boy. well, josiah is now 3 years old and is as cute as he can be... however he is silly. and gross. he is infatuated with TT-ing outside "in da gwass." and did i mention that TWICE at disney world, he dropped trow and peed at the park. in front of people. it was quite embarrassing! we look over while taking a break in the shade, and see this cute, white, little hiney over by a grassy patch and then realize that this cute little hiney was with us!! it was josiah who peed in public at disney world. two different times. oh my..he is also so silly. it never fails, that while we are in the car he will look at ella kate and say, "hey poopy! bahahahahahahahahaha!!" he thinks words like poopy, dooty diaper (dirty), boogie, and TT are all hilarious and he dies laughing after he says them. i don't get it. neither does ella kate:) she always just looks back at him with a blank stare like he is completely immature:)

a little confidence is a good thing... right?

ella kate picked out her outfit for preschool the other morning. she chose a cute, (but faded) hand-me-down outfit, one lavender sock, one pink sock and her light up shoes:) she came upstairs to our full-length mirror and just stood there checking herself out. after a few seconds, she said, "momma, i look soooooooooooooooo CUTE!!" she smiled at her reflection one last time and satisfyingly walked away:)

i'm back.....

two weeks ago, we took ella kate and josiah to DISNEY WORLD!! last minute, we decided to leave miley at home with sissy and eve. it was a hard decision for me, but in the long haul, it was the best decision! we were able to focus on ella kate and josiah and spend quality time with them, while miley was able to play with her best friend, stay on her schedule, and get lots and lots of lovin' from my sweet family:)
the parades were by far, our favorite thing to experience. this was not only ek and jos' first time to disney, but mine as well:) there were so many characters in the parades and to watch our babies' faces as they went by was PRICELESS!! this picture is one of my favorites from our trip. ariel (ek's hero) was on the opposite side of the float facing away from us. prince eric was waving to us and heard ella kate HOLLERING like crazy for ariel, so he turned and grabbed her so she could wave and blow a kiss to ella kate:) how sweet is that!!! abu from alladin was walking in the parade, and josiah was lucky enough to get a quick hug:)we got to meet cinderella, snow white and sleeping beauty one night and each of them had their princes with them!! here is a pic of snow white and the snow prince:)here are bill's sweet parents who took us on the special trip! we love you nana-nan and papa:)we were guests to one of the halloween parties at magic kingdom and got to meet all four of these guys at one time!we had breakfast one morning at chef mickey's! we met mickey, minnie, goofy, donald and pluto!this was josiah's favorite toy story ride:)ella kate liked it, too!josiah's all time favorite hero- "buzz year"riding the monorail to the park every morning was so fun!ella kate's dream come true!! we had lunch with ariel, belle, cinderella, jasmine and aurora:)belle was so sweet!we went on a safari and jos loved it!ella kate loved the crazy bumpy ride, too!we had breakfast at animal kingdom with donald, daisy, mickey and goofy!there are tons of more pictures to share, but this will do for now:)
we had the most fun and made some of the sweetest memories!! although, we missed miley like crazy and were ready to come back home.. we were pooped!!
