Oh yes, I did it!

I got Camryn's ears pierced! She's exactly 5 months today, and I had an appointment to get Connor's hair cut because he starts preschool February 1st.(Can you believe it?!?!?) and they do ear piercing  there and well.... here she is!

She handled it like a champ! Of course, she cried a little, but it was not much different than her vaccinations, and much less traumatic than all the bloodwork she needed when they were testing for her milk allergy. She doesn't even notice when you touch them for cleaning or anything!

 I went back and forth about doing this ever since she was born. I think it looks just adorable, and yet, it didn't seem right to put her through pain just so I could see how cute she looked with earrings. But, I guess my curiosity won out, plus I wanted her to get them before she would be messing around with them herself, and I could take care of all the cleaning and it would just be done with! I am a fan of piercings(I've had 9 myself) so I guess I was a bit biased!

 I also got her weighed today - she is 13lbs 4.5oz, and 25.5 inches, which is slightly smaller in weight than Connor was(13lbs 12oz) and the exact same in length.

I can't believe you did it! Good for you! I was too chicken myself. I've got to see pictures of the little princess with her new earrings :)
