Ear Piercing


We've got another girl with holes in her ears!  Olivia was supposed to wait until her 7th birthday like her sister did, but she can't have earrings in while playing soccer.  So, her sister okay'ed an early ear piercing so she would be past the first 6 weeks and able to take her earrings out by the time the Spring season began.  We left her last game of the Fall season and went directly to our appointment.  We went to the same place and person who did EJ's ears because we really liked how great he was with EJ.


Very nervous, but very brave!

It's not as scary on the other side!

All done!

She even used the same starter hoops as her big sister.  She's just a little excited about the new earrings she going to add to her Christmas wish list.
