-Cruising around the block as much as he can. He's an outside kid for sure. Happiest outdoors.
-Two happy kids
-Her lips are sealed. She's not budging on the no baby food thing. Nor really anything we give her.
-Almost crawling! She goes around in circles and to her belly to sitting. Soon I'll have three mobile children and it's making me a bit nervous.
-My sister got a kitten and she has fallen in love. I mean love. It's almost cute enough to make me get one. Almost.
-One handsome boy.
-So glad when Daddy is home. She's been a mommy's girl so far but Brett's starting to move in on my territory. :)
 -Strolling around with the kitten.

    Was searching for my GF's blog and came across your interesting one. Started reading and had to laugh at your discussion about her wanting earrings. Had to pause and laugh because my dd was similarly determined to have her ears pierced too :) Mom, it may be time for you to consider having both girls ears pierced. My girls were 4 and 12 mos when I had them done. Let me share my story.Dh wanted me to do both ears, but I was unsure. I finally said I would ask our ped about it and see what she said.

    Well, I didn't expect what happened next. Our ped actually encouraged me to go ahead saying it was best when mommy could care for them. She said it have become more popular to pierce newborns, infants and little girls ears because is safer with the newer ear piercing instruments than the traditional methods of using a needle, thread by the mother or grandmother. She gave me some suggestions for moms having their dd's ears pierced which included some OTC meds to minimize any discomfort. She said doing them when mommy could care for them was best.

    At this point, I was ready and told dh I started seeing other little babies including two in church nursery and another little girl in our playgroup with earrings. I finally realized how cute our little toddlers would look with cute earring and yielded to pressure. At first, I was only going to pierce our ODD's ears, but the YDD was forcing the issue. What is a mom to do?

    Almost in a spur of the moment, I decided to have our YDD ears pierced too.I'd say if you've thought about it, then your mommy intuition is telling you to do them now now. Also do consider doing your YDD done since she'll your eventually want them and doing it now is much easier for care and they both girls look adorable with the same earrings. Promise your YDD will look cute too with little earrings.

    If you've even remotely thought about having their ears pierced, then your mommy intuition is telling you to do them now too :) The ears were very easy to care for.

    If you or any other moms would like our ped's tips, write me an e-mail.
