Adalyn, you are 18 months old! Can you believe it? You have changed so much recently and we are having SO much fun with you! Your personality is shining through and you are a great mixture of sweetness and sass:) you remind us a lot of your big sister, Miley.

At your check up this week, you weighed 26.8lb and was 32 in tall. 75% across the board:) you are in a size 5 diaper, size 18mo clothes and a size 5-6 shoe.

You LOVE to eat! Mealtime is a favorite for you!! You will eat just about anything but your favorites are cheese, strawberries, grapes, popcorn, green beans, turkey, pancakes, mini waffles, fruit cups, yogurt, green peas... The list goes on and on:)

Your favorite things to play with are babies, babies, and more babies! You constantly have one in your arms or are pushing one around in a stroller. You love to kiss them, bounce them and shhh them.

You also love cell phones! And shoes.. Any kind of shoes, but dancing shoes (plastic high heels) are your favorite! Whenever you get dressed, you love to smile and say, "pree!" (Pretty) you also love to dance. Your favorite song to dance to is Justin Bieber's song, "baby". You try and sing the chorus.. Hilarious! You also love to sing and dance to VBS music, Amazing Wonders Aviation.

Levi and Bristol get kisses all the time, but here you are kissing sweet cousin, Coleman:)

You are a momma's girl through and through! You don't like to venture off very far from me. You love kissing daddy, and giggle when his scruffy face tickles you. You know all of your siblings names, but haven't tried to say them yet. If I tell you to go give something to Josiah, you will wander around the house until you find him. If I tell you to go kiss Ella Kate, then you start looking for her as well. Levi is probably your favorite right now, but you have a sweet relationship with them all.

You are still talking up a storm, but most of it is jibberish:) you also continue to keep me on my toes... This week you mastered the bunk beds. Talk about giving me a heart attack!!!

We love you SO much, sweet girl! I cannot imagine this life without seeing your cute face everyday! I'm so glad that you are mine!

Levi is 4 months!

Levi Nicholas, you are 4 months old! What a joy these past 4 months have been. You are SO easy and content. You rarely cry and you smile at anyone who looks your way! You are still nursing and I don't plan on starting anything else anytime soon. At your check up yesterday, you weighed 15lb and was 28in long! You are in the 75th percentile for weight, 90th for length and 10th for your cute, little head. When you were born, your head circumference was in the 30th percentile, at 2mo it dropped to the 25th percentile, and now at 4mo it is in the 10th. The drs said in the beginning that they might be a little concerned if your head closed up prematurely, but you can still feel your sweet soft spot, so they are just gonna watch it. Either way.. I LOVE your precious head:) it's perfect to us!

Your sisters and brother ADORE you! Ella Kate asks to hold you everyday, and Adalyn gives you kisses all day long. At any given moment, I can find slobber dripping from the top of your head, from where Adalyn has covered you in lovin. Miley and Josiah love you to pieces too, and are patting you, rubbing your head and making you smile. You love your bouncy seat, and on this particular day, Miley gave you a friend to cuddle with:)

You tried to eat her:)

You sleep on your belly and suck your middle two fingers on either hand. You were sleeping a solid 12 hours at night until recently. now you wake up after 9hrs, I feed you, then you go right back to sleep. You are a MUCH better car rider now. As a matter of fact, I cannot remember the last time you cried in the car. SO thankful:)

You are a tender hearted little Davis, just like your siblings. You have a sympathy cry that you do when someone else is crying. If Bristol, Adalyn or another baby in nursery at church starts crying, your bottom lip automatically sticks out and you cry with them:)

I know you love me, but daddy just might be your favorite person. He calls you "buddy ro" and you just smile and giggle at him. Y'all have the sweetest conversations at night when comes home from work. He LOVES you and we enjoy our nighttime snuggles in our bed with you when the other kids are already asleep. Although it makes me sad how fast you growing, we are so thankful that you are healthy and happy! We can't wait to see you grow more and more.. Love you sweet boy!

Miley, Miley, Miley...

Miley dressed herself one morning and when I commented on how cute she looked, she smiled and said, "yes! My shirt is amazing and this skirt is delightful!!"

Bill put some flea powder in the yard and when the kids saw it, they were commenting on how white it was and how it looked like snow! Miley gasped and said,"whoa! This is so comp-icated!"

Miley was talking to her friends at lunch about a playdate that she was going to have with mrs. Lori. She was very excited when she said, "mrs lori is taking me to the park, and to target, and to make cookies, and she is gonna make us piña coladas!!" haha.. Poor mrs Lori. I have a confession. This summer, while I was ginormously pregnant and then ginormously hot, and postpartum.. I was addicted to making piña coladas at home. Of course I shared them with my kids and of course they were non-alcoholic:) bill kept telling me that I should call them slushies, in fear that our kids would get us in trouble by talking about piña coladas at church.. And sure enough, Miley has spilled the beans and blamed it on mrs. Lori! Lori has never made one for her before, but I think that Miley was just trying to name every fun thing possible that they could do:)

Miley was holding Levi in the bathtub for me last night and he was smiling and "talking" to her. She loved it and said, "momma, levi really likes me! And he told me I am his beautiful princess!"

The kids love to destroy their room. I seriously don't know why I even bother cleaning it.. You can never tell. Last night, they were playing "library" when it was time for bed. Bill went in there and told them to start cleaning up and to find the bible story book that he reads to them every night. He laid on Ella Kate's bed while the kids were picking things up. Miley crawls up next to him on the bed and lays her head on his chest.
Bill asked her, "Miley, why aren't you cleaning with the others?"
Miley: "because my feet are too tired to clean... And I just want to snuggle you cause you are so soft... And you smell really good... And uh, daddy? (while rubbing his bare chest and pointing at a lonely stray hair) this one is out of place.. It belongs over here with the rest of them. (now pointing to a small patch of hair in the center of his chest) :)ha!
This was my view one afternoon while I was keeping my friend's baby, Bristol:)

Ella Kate and Maddie got to celebrate their 6th birthdays with a trip to American Girl!

Sweet Levi..

Crazy hair day..

Sweet, sweet smiles:)

Loves to suck his middle fingers just like Adalyn!

Levi and Bristol 3 months.

Cute boys!

You would think that since I have two big kids that go to school, that my house would stay clean. Umm.. No! Not when I have this cute tornado whipping through:)

I mean, seriously though, who can get mad at this face?!

This is also another daily ritual. Miley would color all day, everyday. And she does so, at the kitchen table with all of my clean laundry that I need to fold and put away. And please notice the spatula in the door handles of the pantry:) another effort to keep the beast out! Ha!

Adalyn loves her some boy pajamas and baseball caps...

Miley showing Levi the fun things on the iPad.

Adalyn LOVES her some babies! She is constantly holding a baby doll, pushing one in her stroller, or bouncing, kissing and shh-ing one on her chest. She was in heaven when we let her hold Levi and Bristol:)

Bill, Miley, Adalyn, Levi and I all Surprised the big kids and showed up to eat lunch with them at school friday before I headed out of town. Jos was smiley and excited to see us and when I motioned for Ella Kate to come sit by us, she shook her head no and said, "I really just want to sit over there with my friends. and mom??.... Next time, don't come." :( ouch. Excuse me while I go cry in a corner.

Sunday night at church, Ella Kate asked if she could go down front and pray with poppa (my dad, the pastor). Bill told her she could, and I got excited thinking about her sweet desire to pray, and what the Lord could have been laying on her heart. In the car on the way home she was proud to tell me that she went down and prayed with poppa. I asked her how it went and she told me, " well, I went down and told poppa that I wanted to pray, and he asked me what I wanted to pray about and I told him, it doesn't matter! So he prayed for me, and 'Siah, and Miley and Adalyn and Levi, and you and daddy." ha! it made me smile:)
