Pictures & Ear Piercing
I took some pictures of Taeya taking her first nap in her crib the other day. (She usually sleeps in the bassinet next to my bed). She doesn't really like her crib though because she likes to be right next to someone. If she's left alone where she can't see me, she tends to start crying. I don't even have to pick her up to get her to stop; she just has to see me. Although I really like having her next to me at night for the convenience, after my friend, Kristin, leaves next week, I'm going to try to get Taeya to start sleeping in her crib. We'll see how that goes.
Check out her adorable bunny slippers that she's wearing. Thanks Rebecca H! We LOVE them! The outfit is from my Mom who loves hearts. It's soft and warm so I like dressing her in it these days. She has very long fingers just like me. My fingers are very long.
So, for the ear piercing story: Phil and I decided long ago that if we ever had a little girl, we'd want to pierce her ears as an infant. We decided to go out today to have it done. Part of me did not want to do it because I don't want to hurt my beautiful baby and I don't want the holes to go in the wrong place because her ears are so tiny. We decided to go ahead with it. We went to our "mall" and first went to JC Penny's. They don't pierce ears but said Claire's did. We went to Claire's and asked if they could do both ears at the same time. The girl said the policy had changed and only children 3 years and older could have them done at the same time. What?? That's stupid! So, Phil and I talked and decided we would do both ear individually. Then the girl asked how old our baby was. I told her that she was 1 month and 1 week old. The girl then said that they couldn't pierce the ears unless the baby was over 3 months old? Grrrr!!! Aren't you SUPPOSED to pierce infant's ears before 3 months so they don't pull on them? We asked if there was anywhere else we could have Taeya's ear pierced. She recommended that we go to a tattoo parlor in town. Um, I don't feel comfortable going to a tattoo parlor myself let alone taking my infant daughter to one. So, we were out of luck today. So, at this point, I guess it's not going to happen anytime soon unless we go to another town.
