Ella gets her ears pierced

I feel like I never post anything about Ella even though she has been growing like a weed. So for the last couple of weeks, Ella has been asking for earrings and has been consistently asking so we decided to honor her request. We've always discussed waiting to get her ears pierced until she wanted them done. So we waiting to see if it wasn't just as passing fad. Well, she decided that it wasn't a fad and she was ready to get her Hello Kitty earrings.

Here is a picture as they were marking her ears: 20110722-090006.jpg

Here is the video of Carrie marking her ears:

Here is a shaky video of her actual ear punctures. Look at her smiles as she was so excited to get her ear's done. Warning there is a bit of crying and the emotional and sensitive may join in with the tears as well.

Before you call us mean parents, she only cried for a moment and then she saw her ears in mirror and she loved how they looked. Here she is a minute after her ears got pierced (check out her red ear lobe).


Update (week and half later):

The healing process continues with no issues. She still loves them and I can catch her looking at herself in the mirror as well as spinning her earrings unconsciously as she watches tv or looks at a book. Therefore, it looks like she was ready and we are glad that we went ahead and did it. By the way, looking for gift ideas? Earrings for Ella.
