Yup, I'm One of Those Moms...

...pierced ears before she even hit her first birthday. Even before I had any children, I always knew if I ever had a daughter I would want to get her ears pierced as an infant. Jeremiah was fine with it, obviously, or I would never have done it. When I walked in the store I wasn't quite sure I was ready to do it, but the ladies were so reassuring, and confident. They assured me they do babies as young as two months all the time. For her first earrings, I picked out her birth stone (I had already decided on that months ago). They marked her ears, and did both at the same time. She cried for like two seconds and was cooing and smiling by the time we left the store.

What a trooper! They look so pretty. If I didn't get mine pierced young (not baby young, but younger), I don't think I would have the courage to do it now. I can have two babies with no meds, but the idea of getting my ears poked now, would freak me out. I'm with you... do it early. :) She is a doll!

I'm jealous - I should have done that with my daughter. Now I'll have to wait until she is old enough to understand that she can't pull them out etc etc. Your daughter is adorable - in fact your whole family is. :)

cute! I'm jealous of her - I wasn't allowed to have mine pierced until I was 12, even though I begged and begged from age 5 onwards!

So cute! I guess I never quite thought about doing it that young. It just never occured to me.

I wish I would have done that for Jozie when she was a baby. She cried for quite some time and almost didn't let them do the second hole! She STILL complains about them and it's been weeks since we had them done. I told her we couldn't change them until they didn't hurt anymore so she's been doing a little better. :)

I wasn't allowed to have my ears pierced until I was 18! I hated being the only girl without it. Once I turned eighteen I went and had it done three times (three holes in each ear). Drove my parents crazy.

Derick is against Elizabeth's being done, but if she asks as a child I'll do it and pull her hair over her ears.

She looks so cute.

Risa,
I really don't understand why they don't do every child's ears both at the same time. Really, the anticipation is the worst part for a child. I clearly remember getting my ears pierced and it didn't hurt to me at all, it just felt hot. The anticipation is what gets you!

Andria,
I'm laughing at the three holes each. I wonder if that made your parents wish they would of let you get one hole earlier and be done! haha

I think I'd be one of those moms too. I've always thought that if I had a daughter I'd get her ears pierced while she was really little. It looks so cute. She looks happy enough about it too!

I pierced my girls' ears at 6 months. Like Sadie, they cried for like 2 seconds...I think the noise scared them the most. And they don't play with them, it is a good age. She looks SOOOO cute :D

I really thought I'd have had Eliana's done by now.. Mine were done when I was 18mo and I did great with it. Now I'm wishing I'd done Eliana's sooner.. I'm not so sure she'd be able to leave them alone now! Having it done hurts SO LITTLE it's ridiculous. But getting used to them takes time. Eliana won't even leave pigtails in her hair right now, so I'm not so sure I could trust her with earrings.

Sadie looks adorable!

I wanted to get both my girls ears pierced as babies but Chris wouldn't have it. He was afraid they would choke. Now they are at the age were they would play with them but not understand why they shouldn't.

She looks adorable. If I had a girl, I would have done the same thing.
