After a lot of discussion, trials with wash off tattoo's, she decided that she was going to get her ears pierced for her 8th birthday. Good ol' Mom and Dad forgot her ID papers, so we ended up spending two hours waiting our turn to get back in line. The first few of these photos are of her waiting. It was probably a good thing because we all became quite comfortable there. When it was time for her to get in the chair, she was more than ready!
In my eyes, this is a big deal. She decided she wanted it, knowing it would hurt, and she went through with it. This kid used to be so shy and clingy. Never wanted to try new things or even let me out of her sight! Her bravery has sky rocketed over the last few years.
I'm so proud of you, my lovebug!
