Ears Pierced!!

Monday we were bored, well, I was bored and I really needed to get out of the house so I got the girls ready, diaper bag, kid in the car seat, coats on, and headed out the door, only to find that there was like 6 - 7 inches of snow covering everything. I started shoveling and because it was just powder it was pretty easy, so I thought I'd cruise right through it. I left the girls out on the back porch and like 1/2 hour later, girls screaming bloody murder, I finished. Sorry girls! We trecked to Layton Hills Mall and ate lunch at the kiddy table and then played on the playground equipment for a while. Ellyse has said that she wanted to get her ears pierced for the longest time but didn't quite understand the whole process, she just sees the pretty earrings and wants those. Wanting her to go through with it and not get scared, I did the wait-until-the-very-last-moment-possible thing to tell her about the sting of getting her ears pierced. At that moment, she suddenly changed her mind and said no, I don't want to but, everything was prepped so, we just pummeled through it quickly. 1 - 2 - 3...Tears for about 2-3 minutes but then she calmed down..mostly. I was the most worried about Allie but, she only yelped like 2-3 times and was on to something new. She handled it like a charm!! Moral of the story, if you're going to pierce your child's ears, do it when their about 8 months old. We finally headed home and daddy got to see the new additions to the ears. Voila! Done. Never again! :) Ellyse chose pink round studs and I chose CZ studs for Allie. Other moral of the story, don't leave your two girls out on the back porch while you quickly try to shovel the driveway. I feel like such the good mom!

So cute! I agree, do it early or a lot later.

Woo hoo! How fun! I learned to do it early with both of my girls. They don't remember it, and the earlier you do it, the less likely they are to play with them. They look very cute!
