In our family we don't pierce the girls ears until they can ask for them. That's the rule my dad had for me and Dustin liked it so it stuck. When Kenley was about 2 1/2 she ask for earrings, of course I went right out and got them.
About two weeks ago Little E was looking at my earrings and playing with them. She looked at me and said, "Mama I want earrings like you". To that I replied, "go ask your daddy". She jumped right up and ran to ask him, he looked at me like I put her up to it. I promise I didn't! She's 2 1/2 it must be the age.
So, Little E has been begging her Daddy for weeks to get her ears pierced and he kept telling her no. He's not good seeing his girls in pain (which is why when in labor he's the one ordering the epidural for me, not me ordering it for me). I know she didn't fully understand that it was going to hurt as you can see in these pictures:
Not sure what's going to happen
After they marked her ears she asked, "Do I have my earrings?"
Look at this SWEET face, I'm sure she's wondering what they're doing
A sucker and ride on the cars at the mall make everything better
Cute earrings little girl, you were very brave!
A few fun things Little E says at age 2:
My princess = skirt or dress
"I'n (instead of I'm) a pretty princess right mom?"
My dressed = her clothes if it's shorts or pants and a T-shirt
Root beer juice = soda (all of our kiddos have called any soda root beer)
Slub it = rub it/love it (we think) she said to me once "mama slub my blankie" I asked her how do I do that and she rubbed in on her face, so now we always tell her "I Slub You!"
"It's all my fault" (not sure where that came from)
"Mom and Kenley you stay right there I'm going potty" (she loves that she can go by herself)
Things she loves
puzzles, corn dogs with the bread taken off (basically a hot dog on a stick), books, playing kitchen, babies, did I say puzzles?, cheese, necklaces, her pink and green blankies, Care Bears, did I mention puzzles?, Curious George, swimming, her daddy, running and oh, puzzles.
