This is something we had planned on doing with Kelsey when she was a baby. We even bought her shamrock earrings while we were in Ireland when I was 5 months pregnant with her. The Dr's office wouldn't do it until she was 6 months and by that time we felt she was pulling on her ears too much. It just kept being put off and now she is 3. We've been talking about it and she has been asking for it, so today we took the girls to the mall. (Does anyone out there realize how expensive it is...it was gonna be $90 at the Dr's office for both and was $77 at Claire's. Holy Cow!!!) We chose little CZ white gold studs for both the girls. We were going to let Kelsey choose hers, but I had to steer her away from the hello kitty ones. I told her which one we were going to use for Kaylee and asked if she wanted the same or wanted to choose a different one. She said she wanted the same.
She was a little nervous. I knelt down in front of her and held her hands. They had 2 people piercing so they could do both of her ears at the same time (smart people). She was NOT happy after. She cried for a couple minutes and did her screaming too. Great, now Kaylee was next. Kaylee sat in my lap and was pretty good. I did have to hold her head against my chest so she wouldn't end up with crooked holes. The girl was pretty quick. Kaylee cried for maybe a minute, but then calmed down, found her fingers and was fine. Kelsey was now asking us to take out her ear piercings. :-) By the end of the day she was fine with them. I wish we had done hers when she was little.
