I got my ears pierced at 2 months old. 2 months. Then, my mom decided not to pierce my sister's ears and she still has "virgin lobes." But I wanted Georgia's pierced so bad! And you know what- I had to beg Scott. BEG! He wouldn't say "no" but he wouldn't say anything and we would have conversations like this:

Scott: "I don't know. She'll be too old looking. It freaks me out."
Me: "You're not giving me any good reasons to not do it!"
Scott: "YOU'RE not giving ME any good reasons! ACCESSORIZE?!"

So yesterday, I was begging again and he quietly said "ok" and I grabbed my chance and did it. My mom was in town and I was happy to have her freakishly level eye there to make sure they did the piercings straight.

Those of you who care are probably wondering if Georgia cried. Yes. But she was done crying by the time they finished the second hole and I hugged her. Seriously, shots are way worse. WAY worse. They don't give you a sucker and a teddy bear when you go to the doctor. She cried much harder when she bumped her head on the coffee table last week.

And just look how freaking cute!


  1. oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh. earrings on babies usually freak me out but right now i HONESTLY don't know why because she looks so sweet and girly! did scott love them once he saw them? SHE IS SO CUTE.

  2. They do make them look more grown up but it makes them such little ladies! I love it! I think shots were way worse.

    Carrie Lynn,

    Was searching for my GF's blog and came across yours. Loved your thoughtful reasoning and description having your dd's ears pierced as an infant.

    This was a perfect age to pierce her ears! You were a smart mommy for doing it now and following mommy intuition earlier is best when mommy can care for them. Babies and little girls with little pierced ears celebrates their femininity and femaleness.

    Our ped gave me some suggestions for moms having their infant dd's ears pierced.

    Write me an e-mail if your're thinking about it and want to some more research on the topic.




I like to hear all of the beautiful things you have to say.
