I broke down today and I did it. I kept telling myself that I would wait until some arbitrary age or date, but I couldn't take it anymore, so I took Lily this afternoon and had her ears pierced. Of course we picked up an ice cream cone for the brave little girl on out way home.She was such a good girl. She was a unsure about the lady drawing dots on her ears, but when it came time to pierce them she just sat on my lap and held my hands. She only fussed for 10-15 seconds when it was all over and then was running around, saying goodbye to the lady who pierced them, and reminding me that I had promised her an ice cream cone.
She came right in the house when we got home and got back to playing with her doll.
I think that it looks adorable. She was good tonight about letting me clean them before bed as she looked at them in the mirror.
My baby girl is growing up so fast.
