The other morning, I was trying to get ready for a doctors appt. Miley was aggravating adalyn downstairs and making her scream. I asked her to keep her hands to herself and to leave her baby sister alone. Two minutes layers, I hear adalyn screaming again. I call for Miley to go to her room and sit on her bed until I come in there to talk to her. She immediately obeys and I hear her climb up in her bed and make up a song while singing it at the top of her lungs, "I am in trouble.... Momma won't talk to me, I don't have no friends and I'm fixin to get a spankin'..." it was hilarious. And completely sung in an opera style. 

Today was a no tv day here at the Davis house. The kids and I played a lot of games and I cleaned up a LOT of messes! Tv is such a good "babysitter".. I can let them watch something on Netflix while I feed Levi, or fold clothes, or make beds, hop in the bath... Or have a few minutes to be alone. But one episode of fresh beat band will turn into 2, and then another and before you know it they have sat in front of the tv for 2 hours! Granted, my house will be spotless, but that only lasts for a little while:) so the tv was off all day and surprisingly we all survived! The kids played great all morning. They played restuarant where Josiah would hold a book and tell Miley, "ma'am, come with me and I'll show you to your table.":) Ella Kate was the "waitress girl" and carried a tray with one hand above her head full of cups and bowls. Next they played store where the girls took turns being the "pay girl" (cashier). Josiah dumped out our toy boxes and book baskets to find the perfect things to buy. I printed them out some fake money and they were thrilled! After that, they got in their dress up stuff and became princesses and sonic the hedgehog. The big girls both wore these pink hooded capes and dancing shoes:) adalyn didn't have a cape, so she wore a baby towel over head and ran around the house in her make shift cape.. And was pleased as punch:) the girls would run and fall down and "die" and sonic the hedgehog would come to rescue them. I wish I had taken some pictures.. It was quite funny!

After lunch, I went upstairs to help settle Levi and put him down for his nap. He was restless today.. Which is unusual for him. When I came back downstairs, I saw that the kids (or most likely Ella Kate) had cleaned off the table, put the dishes in the sink, swept the floor of its crumbs and pushed the chairs back in..completely unprompted. Ella Kate was coloring at the table, Miley was playing barbies on her floor, jos was on his bed playing and adalyn was wandering around the house with her towel still on her head:) I love these moments! Everything was so quiet and peaceful!

 I called everyone together to come sit in a circle and play a game. We had to say one thing that we loved about each person. Their answers were silly, but heartfelt and sweet. Miley loved that Josiah takes care of her and loves that Ella Kate plays ballerina with her. Josiah loved that Miley let him be Ken when they play barbies and he likes when Ella Kate tickles him:) Ella Kate said she loved it when I play with them and when I let them eat sometimes..? :) cute kids.. She also loves that Levi is the cutest baby boy in the world.. But so is Coleman:)

 One more thing about Miley.. I love that she can make a "family" out of anything. She plays so, SO good by herself. Her two favorite things to play are doll house and barbies. However, when she is somewhere where there aren't "people" to play with, she will improvise with no problem:) for instance, last night in the bath tub, she made a family out of the shampoo and soap bottles. She had a mom, dad, brother and sister. It was too cute. She has also done this at the pool with diving sticks/rings and with the silverware at the table. I love watching her imagination at work!
