Adelle got her ears pierced today. She was really good. We let her pick out her earrings- pink studs, and sat her up on the big seat, and she was so excited. I warned her that it was going to hurt, but I think she was too excited to really listen to me. She was sitting up in the chair, grinning so big, until the lady came to mark her ears, then she got all clenchy. It was pretty funny. Then they pierced her ears- both at the same time (really the only way to do it- especially in the little girls.) She was OK for like a second after they did it, and then you could just see her expression change as she started to feel it. There were some big tears, but she only cried for about 2 minutes tops. It also helped that they gave her a bag of skittles. By the time I paid, she was back to smiling, and telling the ladies thank you. Ever since we got home, she has been looking in every mirror to see her new "big girl earrings." At the store, one of the ladies made a remark about how big she was now to have pierced ears, so when we were leaving, she asked me if we were going to big girl school now.--I have been telling her that I wont sign her up for preschool until she would go potty in the toilet, that she needed to be a big girl to go.
The first picture is of her goofy face waiting to get them pierced, second is obviously them actually doing it, and third is right after, with a very grumpy face.
Sorry for the crappy photos, they were taken with my phone, which while it in itself is completely awesome, it definitely doesnt have the best camera.
