update on the crazies:)

ok, so the blog has been neglected lately. i apologize!
let's see here... i am trying to think of what all is new around the davis house. ella kate and josiah are STILL having slumber parties every night and they have finally gotten into a decent routine. they still occasionally give in to the urge to jump from bed to bed and have pillow fights at midnight, but for the most part they are getting about 11 hours of sleep each night! praise the lord! however, miley must have picked up on the whole jump-on-your-bed-when-you-are-supposed-to-be-sleeping thing. the past couple of nights we have heard her making all kinds of ruckus in her bed and when we open the door to peek at her, we see her holding onto the rails of her crib and jump, jump, jumping as if her bed were a bouncy house! and i kid you not, the baby can get some air! she is so funny! she also has expanded her vocabulary some, too! when you call her, she turns her head and says, "what?" (we are working on her manners:)) my mom was kissing her the other day and miley pushed her away while saying, "top it! top it! top it!" (stop it!) hehe.. she has never really been the affectionate type! i also LOVE to see her reaching up her hands to me and saying, "holdoo, holdoo!" (hold you) and also, every kid or baby she sees in a picture is "eve" :)
ella kate has been struggling with separation/anxiety lately. it makes me sad and a little frustrated because she is THREE!! she cries when i drop her off for those three days at preschool. she cried when i dropped her and the other babies off at my sisters house when bill and i went to the carrie underwood concert last weekend (which by the way was AMAZING!!) and one afternoon my mom came to our house while all the babies were napping so i could run to the dr, and when ella kate woke up and i was not here, she cried and cried! :( what is the deal?? she also gives me this speech EVERY.SINGLE.NIGHT. after we tuck her in and say her prayers she ALWAYS says, "momma, you promise to come and check on me? but,don't let it be morning time, ok? you promise to come and check on me when it is still dark time? and remember that i said that, ok? pinky promise!" oh my word... yes kid i will always come and check on you! i will never leave you! i am just going to be in the next room! you are fine! ((sigh)) i just don't get it. i don't know what i have done to cause my baby this much anxiety. i never really even leave her. i mean, she goes to school for a couple of hours a day for 3 days a week (which she LOVES! it is just the initial separation thing that gets her). we haven't had a babysitter in months until erin watched them for us to go to the concert. AND i haven't been to the dr since miley was born, so my mom coming here so i could be gone for an hour to have some blood work done was a first, too! so they really are always with me, i don't know why she thinks that i am going to leave her. she stresses me out, i tell ya!! but i love that little booger! even though her nighttime speech has rubbed off on my sweet bubba 'siah! when i laid him down for his nap he said, "momma, you check uh my! kay?? pick-a-pwomise!" (you're gonna come and check on me, ok? pinky promise!)and instead of sticking up his pinky finger, he's got his little pointer finger in the air:) i love him.. then he lays down and rolls over! simple enough:)
i feel that josiah has really grown up a lot lately. he is my big helper boy, always wanting to hold someone's hand or open the door for me, or find my phone that i lose every ten minutes. he still is pretty quiet and keeps to himself and he LOVES him some donuts:) you should hear the way he says donut.. precious! he has the cutest little accent and i am not sure where he got it. i really don't even know what he sounds like, but it definitely is different. it has to do with the way he pronounces his "O" and "R" sounds, and he is still working on making his "S" not a "TH" sound. hehe.. i have a video of him saying his prayers at night. A-DORABLE! i need to post it:) i'll get to that soon!
