Friday was the big day! Sienna and I went to get her ears pierced! She was very particular about where she wanted to get it done (Claire's), so we went to the mall and found the store. She picked out the studs that she wanted and the ladie came over and explained how things worked and had me sign all of the paper work. I really wanted to video the entire thing but Sienna was VERY nervous and adamant that I not film it...heck, I am lucky that she even let me take her picture. Sienna was so nervous and kind of started whimpering as the girl was loading the gun. I asked her if she was sure that she wanted to do this and she nodded yes. She grabbed my hand and started squeezing it HARD. The girl asked if we wanted her to countdown and I said no, just do it. And just like that it was done....as she did it, I have never seen Sienna's eyes get so big! I thought that she was in a ton of pain from the look on her face. I asked her if she was ok and she said "mom, it didn't even hurt!" In the end, she was very pleased with herself and loves to look in the mirror at her changed reflection. The before shot, she was so nervous that she wasn't thrilled about getting her picture taken.
