Stella’s Ears are Pierced…

Two short weeks ago our little Stella turned three months old! Can you believe it? While folding the laundry this weekend we came across a newborn size onesie and it looked SOOO small. It is crazy how time flies and even though Stella seems so small to us, she really is growing more and more every day.

To celebrate her three month birthday (because when you’re this young you get a birthday party every month…the only bad part is that the extent of her friends to invite is only mom & dad) we decided to take her to the mall and get her ear’s pierced. We realize some parents prefer to wait til their babies are older, but we didn’t want Stella to remember the pain. She really only cried for about 2 minutes and they haven’t bothered her since.

Of course Daddy had to be the bad guy holding her, and then Mommy came to the rescue to comfort her afterwards…

Can you see the tiny little dot the lady made on her ear with a purple marker?

The finished product: a happy baby at home with cute ears!

She is the cutest baby!! She looks so happy with her little ears pierced :)


She is just precious, Kristin! We had a girls’ day and our two bigger girls got their ears pierced recently (SO fun) and I think we readjusted the purple dot on my Gracie’s ears about FIVE times until we got it right. Funny how Lily’s were perfect at first mark, but Gracie’s took an age. :) Stella’s sparkly ears are adorable!

If I ever have a girl, that is my plan. My mom did it for me and I am going to do it for my little one.

I did this for my daughter at just over 3 months old. She cried for maybe 1 minute at most! She’s now almost 3 and barely realizes that she even has earrings in half the time. Plus little babies heal super fast.

Was searching for my GF’s blog and came across yours. Loved your thoughtful reasoning and description and pictures of having your dd’s ears pierced. I think you were a smart mommy for doing it now when mommy can care for them.

Babies and little girls with pierced ears celebrates their femininity and femaleness.

Our ped gave me some suggestions for moms having their infant dd’s ears pierced as well as for “Tips for moms having their dd’s ears pierced/Care of Newly Pierced Ears.”

If any other moms thinking about it and want to do it now or would like them, write me an e-mail.

@[176300187:2048:Nina Jackson Forrester] yeah I am so glad my mom did it too. I am such a chicken I don’t think I would have gone to get it done myself!
