New belts and snaggle-tooths

Benjamin tested this Friday night for his new level of belt in karate. He moved from a camo belt to a green belt. He was very excited, of course!

Here he is in his sparring gear saying "Do good sir," to his opponent. I hate this part of karate...seeing other kids kick and punch my son, and worse, seeing him hit and kick back!!!

It's all very controlled and done with respect. He very respectfully kicks booty, I must say! Whenever he knocks someone off their feet he always helps them up! AHHH!

Oh so proud!!!

Here is Cait this morning. This was her face when she saw that it was pouring down rain outside and we were about to get out in it!

But she gets over it pretty quickly. She's mostly smiling because the tooth fairy visited her last night for the FIRST time!!!

Paul pulled her itty bitty baby tooth and she put it under her pillow. She left $2.25, a pack of gum, some fairy dust all around the bed and table and she also dipped her wing in the water we left so we know that she is yellow. Isn't that amazing?

I hate this growing up stuff! Seriously, it's hard when it's your baby going through these milestones!!! Bluh!

At least we have none of those ginormous teeth yet! She still looks so little!

It's so hard to believe your baby, Cait, just lost a tooth! Time is flying by. We miss y'all and hope all is well! Congrats to Benjamin on that green belt!

Amaleah can't wait to "really" lose a's taking a bit longer for her because she lost those bottom two out way early at the tender age of 4....:)
