We had an eventful evening tonight. Keilani decided that it was time for her loose tooth to be removed. She suggested that we tie string around it and slam the door. So, as per her request, we did just that. Dental floss around the tooth, attached to the front door, Keilani sitting on the step. We were a little worried that an over-reaction would take place, but much to our surprise...she was calm, cool, and collected! Unfortunately, we didn't think the entire thing through very carefully since she was sitting on our cream colored carpet near the front door. No blood was spilled on the carpet(thank goodness), but the tooth went MIA. We're not sure if it went flying out the door as it was slammed or if it landed deep in the fibers of the carpet. We searched and searched and much to our dismay, we found nothing. Fortunately, Keilani wasn't too broken up about the literal losing of the loose tooth and seemed content to write a letter to the tooth fairy and share the bad news. The note says, "This is Keilani. I lost a tooth. I don't know where it is." Sadie felt that she needed to add her note to Keilani's and draw a picture of Keilani with her loose tooth. We were so excited for Keilani and so were she and Sadie. It was such a fun and exciting night!

I was looking through some files on my computer and found this video of Keilani when she was about 2 years old. I believe we were at a swim meet for Jake's sister Julia. Of course Jake was encouraging her to face her fears and run down a narrow cement wall and jump off the end! What a great dad!
This is one of Sadie from when she was about 2 1/2 months old. She apparently loved the sound of her own voice. Not much has changed!

Keilani got some tattoos in her Valentine's day cards from school. She is such a nice sister that she shared a tattoo with Sadie. Keilani wanted the red firey dragon tattoo and she gave Sadie the sweet teddy bear one. (I thought that maybe it should be the other way around!) They each told me where to place the tattoo and I helped them apply it. They felt pretty tough and cool! Sadie, of course, insisted on wearing her beautiful dress to show off the tattoo. Sadie's tattoo faded rather quickly, however I'm beginning to think that Keilani's is permanent! She has had it on for over a month now and it has only slightly worn off. Oh well, maybe she will be tired of it and realize that a REAL tattoo would be boring!
