Okay...so Hadlea might not have new diamonds in yet, but she does have some new bling! Grammie, Nana and I took Hadlea to get her ears pierced yesterday. I have been meaning to do them since she was born. I guess taking 7+ months to actually do it isn't too bad! Ha! It took me all day to make the appointment. Once I did, I was so nervous and sweating like crazy! I KNEW she would cry, and I just couldn't believe I was making an appointment for something that would cause her to scream like a mad woman! But beauty is pain, right?! :)
How adorable is this?!
Here is how our journey went...
Grammie, Hadlea and I headed to Okmulgee to meet Nana at Yours Truly.
(I had been planning to get them done somewhere in Tulsa, but I was set on finding a place that pierced them two at a time. I called 20+ salons that did not do them two at a time. I even called tattoo and piercing parlors...crazy, I know! I did find two places in the mall, which you can probably guess, that did it two at a time but only on the weekends when they have two people working. I just couldn't imagine getting them done on a weekend when the mall was FULL. I had no idea how long OR LOUD she would scream! So this is the reason we headed to Okmulgee.)
Hadlea and Grammie waiting to get started!
And Nana showed up and held Hadlea as she got her ears cleaned off!
Hadlea getting her ears marked! And she is eating a sucker! I had the bright idea of bribing her with a sucker before and after! Is that mean?! :) We gave her the sucker while she got her ears marked. Once they were ready, I took the sucker away, Grammie held her arms down and the two girls from the salon shot her ears! She did scream! :( I grabbed her and headed out the door to go outside. This was maybe 5 steps away. By the time we got to the door she looked down and see the sucker in my hand. She stopped crying and opened her mouth for the sucker! That was it...no more crying! I think the sucker was a success! I was a nervous wreck! I think I was still shaking several hours later!
But we both survived!
Grammie, Hadlea and Nana!
It makes me feel so good that they were both there to share this memory! I know Hadlea will ask when, where and how she got her ears pierced just like I have. It will be so good to tell her that both of her grandma's were able to be there!
After the piercing was over, Grammie, Hadlea and I headed to Tulsa to shop for our upcoming beach trip. Grammie and I got a few new clothes. Ms H does NOT need one more outfit! I have clothes running out of my ears for her. (My fault, I know! And so many of you are probably saying, "I told you so!") :) I am trying to get her through all of her 6 month summer stuff before it gets cold!
So after shopping, we stopped at Chili's for dinner. This is how my daughter sits in a high chair!
Yep, one foot up on the side! I have no idea how she doesn't fall over. And she sets like this the entire time. People do notice! :) She was in such a great mood! She was 'talking' aka 'squealing' to everyone that walked by. It does get embarrassing too! And she got so loud at one point that she got the attention of the people next to us...
Meet Courtney. :) Her and her mom were out for a mother/daughter dinner and got seated right next to us. Thankfully they were not regretting it and wanted to play with H!
Today is Grammie's last day to watch H. She has to go home tonight and Nana will be in tomorrow to watch her. For lunch today, Hadlea and I needed to go get adjusted at Aunt Amanda's office. I just had to get a few more pictures with those new ears! I am so in love! Why did it take me 7+ months?! :)
