Ear Piercing Screams

Yes, it's October, and Halloween is just around the corner, but this post has nothing to do with it. Last weekend, we had Isabella's ears pierced. It's a family tradition to get the baby girl's ears pierced when they are infants. I had mine done as a baby and I knew I would do the same with my daughter. We went to the mall with a mission. I went prepared and checked out the store's offerings before going. You know me, I loved to be prepared. I picked out her earrings, and filled out the paper work. Isabella was already kind of drowsy, and going in and out of a light nap. My niece also got her ears pierced, and Isabella was next. Jesse held her as the girl behind the counter marked the spots. I doubled checked, made a correction, and it was time. With rubber gloves, and a loaded piercing gun, the girl shot the first stud, and Isabella let out a wail. Not too bad, but there was one more, and that last shot pushed her over the edge. She let out a loud cry, and she cried for a few minutes. Once she settled down, I gave her her paci, and she was fine. That was it. It's been a few days now, and she's been perfectly fine, and her ears appear to be healing normally. No extra fussiness!
