It was a big, big day. One that she's anticipated for a couple of years.
Everyone has different opinions. Blake and I have always thought her ears being pierced should be her choice. She started taking notice of friends a while ago, but we waited until she was sure about moving forward with it.
5 years old seemed to be a good fit.
Our "surrogate grandmother" and very special neighbor had a friend in the mall she trusted. We made an appointment and prepared for the big day.
She's excited at this point.
And, my sweet girl is nervous here. I wanted to whisk her away and tell her to wait.
But, it was her choice.
The girls did both ears at once. It was a bit scary and she ended up crying.
My sweet, sweet girl.
Her first lesson in beauty.......it's not all fun and games to be "pretty".
But, look how proud she is now:
Pink diamonds. She's in love.
And, regardless of her earrings, I'm even more in love than ever, because every day brings us even closer together.
My only daughter.
She is a blessing that words cannot even begin to describe.
