The day Adelyn turned 5 months old we got her ears pierced!! They look adorable! It wasn't planned or anything, well not that day at least. I had been saying I wanted to have it done between 5 and 6 months. I am not a person who wears a lot of jewelry or make up. I like to keep it pretty simple and natural. But I always have a pair of earrings on. The same pair every day. They are the gift that Jared bought me for having Andon and I love them.
Well we just happen to be in the mall and walked past the store that does it and said let's go in. Once we were in there and asked if they could do it I got a little scared. The girl gave me some papers to sign and initial that I was her parent and that she informed me on how to properly clean and take care of her pierced ears. But as I was signing them I was wanting to back out. I don't like surprises or unexpected things they make me very uncomfortable and nervous. But I got myself together and hopped up in the chair with her on my lap.
Really it was like getting a shot. She cried for about a minute or two and then she was fine. Even Andon cried for a minute or two, precious boy. She hasn't grabbed at them or tried to mess with them at all. They don't even look like new piercings not that I know what new piercings look like. But I would assume a little red or pink and her don't appear that way at all.
Here we are cleaning them for the first time. We have to clean and turn them three times a day for 2 months.
And here they are. :)
