carly has her ears pierced!

so the girls and i were randomly in the mall (march 25th), at claire's, when i jokingly suggested to carly that we should get her ears pierced. i have really been waiting for her to tell me that she wanted them pierced, i promised i would never impose it on her. she was all the sudden insistent that we pierce them as i had suggested. i tried to talk her out of it but i thought, "well, i have always said i would do it when she really wanted them." and she really wanted them! she cried when it happened, but if you ask her the sucker made it all better! she picked her birthstone (without knowing that it was) all by herself, which is random because she would NEVER pick blue anything...what a coincidence...

2 months later her ears are doing great and she is SO proud of them! she is so stinkin cute!

Was searcing for a GF's blog and came across yours. Started reading and loved the story of you having your dd, Carly, ears pierced when she was ready to have it done. Like you, I was waiting for our dd to ask. I wanted to have them done early, but hesitated for no good reason.

One day our 2.5 yr wanted them done after seeing "mommies pretties" and came to me saying she wanted her "ears perced." She was persistent an took one of my earrings and tried to put it in her ear. Dh said to take her and have them done.

She did great and when we came home Daryl was so excited to see Sandi's ears, he asked me why I didn't get Missy's done. (Why didn't I think of that at the time?) So we all went the next day to get Missy (age 15 months) ears pierced. I don't know if you're thinking about having your younger dd's ears pierced too, but it was no trouble taking care of both girls. Did I say both girls would look adorable with earrings?

Before I took Sandi, I asked our ped about doing our almost 3 yr old. She encouraged me to go ahead if I was caring for them. In fact, she gave me some suggestions for moms having their babies/toddlers ears pierced. They worked great and I used them for both girls.

Write me an e-mail if you're interested and I will mail them to you.
