talby has been thinking about getting her ears pierced for quite awhile.
but she was very nervous about it.
this week i said "you want to just do it right now so you won't be scared anymore?"
she debated....hyperventilated.....laughed shakily....then said "ok" really quietly.
so we parked the car and went in and did it.
she did it.
little rhinestone studs.
and then there was little miss annie.
the opposite of talby....jumping up and down...not nervous...so excited to be like her big sister.
"i want to get MY EARS PIERCED TOO!"
she picked the same earrings.
she was giggling she was so excited.
then the count down 1, 2, 3 pop.
tears and tears and tears.
VERY very loud in wal-mart.
(surely that was the first time a child has cried loudly in wal-mart....)
we did some deep breathing with the jewlery counter girl...she passed out the smarties...
and that was that.
gigantic GIRL milestone crossed...on a whim...just for fun.
way to go girls!!!
you look so beautiful with your sparkly new bling.
and it's just in time for family pictures!
they are today.
i am so excited about it.
we chose shirt #1 for lauren.
thank you to all the 600+ voters who helped us chose.
i told craig "it just proves how important fashion is to women..." with the 600 comments.
she matched us best in #1.
but looked great in every single one.
wish me luck that i don't blink in every shot.
and that my kids aren't a nightmare for wendy & tyler.
