5 Little Monkeys….

A couple of days ago, I had all 4 kids sitting on the couch with me, and I started singing the 5 Little Monkeys song. However I changed it a little “4 little monkeys sitting on the couch, one fell off and bonked her head. The mama/aunty called the doctor and the doctor said “no more monkeys jumping on the couch!”” I sang about 2 verses of this song and pointed to the kids while singing. Alexis was enjoying herself, however she slid of the couch and waddled into my bedroom (their bedroom for the time being). A few moments later she returned with the 5 Little Monkeys BOOK! I was shocked. I showed Justin what she just did. He said that was pretty cool, but most likely a coincidence, especially since we didn’t see hear actually “search” for the book. Knowing she does search our her favorite book “I love You Through and Through” I had a suspicion that she may have known what I was singing.

The next day, Alexis and Kaia were on the couch with me, as I was telling Aunt Melanie the story. Once again Alexis slithered off the couch. This time, I knew all her books were in her crib. So I quickly ran into my room picked up a pile of books and put them on the floor. With “5 Little Monkeys” somewhere in the middle. Then I rushed back to my seat and continued the story. I watched as I saw Alexis squat down and peruse the books. Moments later, out she comes with the appropriate book.

The story keeps going… that afternoon, I told Aunt Jessica about both episodes, while telling the story, Alexis quickly retrieved the “5 Little Monkeys” book off the table and brought it to me to read.

I am pretty sure, she knows what book I am talking about!
