Melody loves all bright and shiney things so I knew it was only a matter of time before she would want...her ears pierced!
She has been asking for a few weeks. I was ready for her to do it. Alex wasn't so sure. Melody and I discussed it and determined that ear piercing is really a girls' decision though. So, while at the beach last week, we decided to take advantage of a rainy morning and get pierced!
Melody was so excited but I knew she didn't really understand what piercing meant.
She could tell something was going on.
I think she thought all was well and good when she got a lollipop.
Then she found out what ear piercing really was!
Fortunately they did both ears at the same time.
I really think she thought the pain was worth it when she saw them!
And a kiss makes everything better!
