Kissable Keikis & Karate Kid

Kissable Keiki(s) (Hawaiian for child...pronounced like "Kay-kee")
and Karate Kid...

Here are some photos of our Kissable Keikis...aren't all babies so sweet! And I love our chubby babies!

The first set of photos are from each of our three with their daddy at their 2 week well-baby check up appointments.  What a blessing to have him home, so when he wasn't deployed, he was right there with us.  At Heartbreaker's appointment, Mr. B has his flight suit on, so he must have been able to meet up with us after flying.

These were taken a few days after their appointments.
 Oh's another "K" word! Knit...
Girly~Twirly was "poured" into this little sleeper that I knitted.  I love to crochet, sew, etc, but I am amazed that I actually was able to knit this, since this was the first thing that I ever knitted! haha  and it literally fit her that one time...So, I was determined to get one picture at least of her wearing it.

These photos are our Keikis at 2 months old...all were pretty chubby kiddies!  They all looked like rubber bands were tied around their wrists and arms.  Girly~Twirly had the most rolls on her legs...8 on one leg and 9 on the other!

I wanted to add a few more photos of our Kissable Keikis.  
...and oh! ...listen to the song... it's about a Kookaburra :o)                                               

Anyone remember the movie Karate Kid (released in 1984 with Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita (In another post, I had shown the bonzai tree drawn for Pat Morita's cousin, when we were in Hawaii)... & do you remember this quote: "Wax on Wax off")?
Karate Kid 2? Karate Kid 3? Karate Kid 4?

(ok, I wasn't sure if there were that many, but after I looked it up...there they were! Our family watched them all :o) I was looking for more info on the original Karate Kid...I found this movie trailer of the upcoming June 2010 remake release of The Karate Kid! (with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan)
And last of all are these photos of our Karate Kid :o) Heartbreaker and dad started taking Jujika Jujutsu (this is actually a blend of several styles of martial arts) right before when Heartbreaker turned 12yrs old.

2 weeks after his 14th birthday, Heartbreaker tested for his black belt. Part of his test consisted of sparring against his instructors! They were huge, grown men!

Here are a few drawings...Karate kind...

...and some drawing orders that others have ordered of their kissable keikis...

And here is a famous keiki that was ordered for someone who collects everything to do with this childhood star :o)

I loved seeing the pictures and montage of when your kids were little than big. You have a wonderful family.

That was so cool that your husband and son took jujutsu lessons together.

I love your drawings especially Shirley Temple. You are such a good artist.

What a wonderful post for the letter K, I love all of the photos of your children. I remember the Karate Kid and Wax on, Wax off quote, how much does that age us?

Have a wonderful week!

Steph said...

I love your posts. Your keikis are precious. You are right. What kissable little babies. They grow up so fast don't they.

The pictures with your husband are especially sweet; and it's fun to see your son in his karate gear. I've learned what a huge deal it is to get that black belt.

In your karate drawing, I saw the character for love, but did not know the one above it.

As always thanks for dropping by :).

Whimsical Creations said...

Hope your had a wonderful Easter.

xinex said...
