Ear piercing


*Private blog will be starting on the next blog* I need to have find some time to sit down and make it private, as it will take some time.

On Tuesday, January 19th, we finally took Sydney to get her ears pierced. She has been asking and asking to have "rings" like Mommy since Christmas, so after waiting and hoping she would change her mind, we gave in.
I am SO glad we waited till she was old enough to decide to do it because it was a lot of fun taking her, her picking out the earrings she wanted, and get excited about being a "big girl". She picked the pink earrings, of course :) The woman said 3 and 4 is a good age because they don't really know yet that it is going to hurt. And a perk is we found a store that would do it 2 at a time, so we didn't have to fight for the second one. She only cried for about 45 seconds till they gave her a lollipop but cried for 30 minutes after they showed her in the mirror because she wanted 4 "rings" like Mommy!!! We had to distract her and take her out of the mall!!! All that pain and she wanted MORE!! :) She is my tough cookie!



She has been doing well with the cleanings of her ears and I find her in the bathroom staring at her "rings".


Preparations for the piercing......

aww! Sounds just like our experience. Madison wanted earrings for awhile and we kept talking about it to make sure. She got them when she was 4yrs old....she's 8 now and still loves them! She also didnt cry until afterwards....lol it was like an aftershock.

your baby is growing up!!

Love it!! She looks gorgeous! My Mom took the girls for their second birthdays (I got mine done when I turned 2), and they LOVED it!! Both of them were asking for them. Elliott called them "pieces for her ears" and Janna called them "ariels". I think Elliott lost 1 earring - it got stuck in a turtleneck and we didn't realize it. But aside from that, no one has touched them. It's been awesome!

Elliott wants more holes. She loves all of mine (I have 11 total) and her Gramma's (she has 9) - but she has to wait. Until she's at least 8...that's when I got my second hole.
