Bright and shiney things

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!

I want to get Claire's ears pierced but she is not game. Maybe in a year or two.

Awe! Those tears are so sad! She is losing her baby look to quickly, her face has thinned out so much.

Tell her she looks beautiful!
