second on the agenda for the day : GETTING STELLA'S EARS PIERCED!!! i have been wanting to do it for awhile now but have always been too scared, so i waited until my mom was with me since she has done it once before - i knew she wouldn't let me chicken out.
the lady was SO good with stella and stella was SUCH a big girl! we held really still for the first ear.then, THIS is how she looked for the second ear :) POOR BABY!!! honestly, this picture looks horrible, but she only cried for about 10 seconds!
then, once it was all over, she was SO excited to see herself in the mirror! we had talked about it for a few days before and i kept saying "you will be SO pretty when you get your ears pierced!" trying to talk it up so she would get excited about it. so afterwards she kept pointing to her ears and saying "i pitty! i pitty!" she got 2 prizes for being so good - she got the movie the jungle book (which she ABSOLUTELY LOVES) and she got a giant coloring book and crayons. we all made a HUGE deal out of it when we got home (me, my mom, my dad and michael) and she was SO PROUD of herself :) as if she could be any cuter!!!
