My baby girl is growing up

We didn't pierce Faith's ears when she was a baby because I always wanted her to make that choice. I figured that she would probably be 7 years old when she wanted it done. BUT, oh no! Faith has been talking about getting her ears pierced for a couple weeks now. So tonight, we decided to take her to get them done.
She of course picked out ”diamonds”. She climbed up the chair like a big girl and really did pretty well. She did so good with the first ear, and was a little nervous about the second one, but did great.
When we were checking out, she was looking in mirror, smiling and dancing. She was so happy she got her ears pierced. The girl who did them was so sweet and patient. When we left Faith said ” thank you for piercing my ears”.
We celebrated with a yummy cupcake from Hey Cupcake.
  I am so happy that we made a special memory for my baby girl today.

  1. Diedre,

    Was searching for my GF's blog and came across yours. Loved your thoughtful reasoning and description and pictures of having your dd's ears pierced. She is adorable with those little earrings. I think you were a super smart mommy for allowing her to have it done now.

    Our ped also encouraged to do it when mommy could care for them whether she was a baby or little girls. Both look adorable with little pierced ears. It celebrates their femininity and femaleness.

    Our ped gave me some suggestions for moms having their infant dd's ears pierced as well as for "Tips for moms having their dd's ears
    pierced/Care of Newly Pierced Ears."

    If you or any other moms thinking about it and want to do it now or would like them, write me an e-mail.
