Avery has been begging us for months to get her ears pierced, telling us she would DIE if she couldn't get them pierced. Sooooo I finally gave in (not in fear of her imminent death otherwise, but because Rob and I were both truly fine with it) and took her to Claire's.
At first she accepted their offer to hold the bear.
Then she decided she was too big for that. She picked out her earrings. A couple clicks and it was over.
All done! They look great! She was so excited and proud of herself.
