Yup, we did it; we got Ke'alohi's ears pierced! After much discussion and consideration, Lucas and I decided that we did want to pierce Ke'alohi's ears now that she is young and we can take care of them. This way by the time she knows what earrings are and wants to change them as often as she changes her clothes, we will have less of a chance that they will have problems or get infected.
Since Ke'alohi had done so well when she got her shots, it made me feel better about getting her ears pierced since I thought she would take it just as well. But, I was wrong and she cried bloody murder for a few minutes before we gave her a bottle and she fell asleep. I definitely felt guilty for making her cry but I hope that she will thank me one day when she doesn't remember the pain or have to deal with the healing process herself.
Doesn't she look pretty!!!
