Georgia turned 1 last Sunday!
We got Soph's ears pierced when she turned 1, so it was natural for me to book Georgia in at this age as well.
There's only place in our area that I could find to pierce ears as young as this, which I found really surprising..
I had my ears done when I was really little and I don't remember it at all. Then I had a second set done when I was around 15, and I hate the memory of it, and all the care I had to take to make sure my ears didn't get infected. Now I don't even wear the second set anymore!
So given my 2 experiences I had no hesitation getting the girls ears done at 1 year. We had 2 beauticians do Sophie's ears at the same time so there was only 1 moment of impact and it was over in a couple of minutes.
The girls went to do the same yesterday with Georgia but one pulled away at the last second as Georgia moved a little - fair enough too! So Georgia's took about 5 minutes altogether. She cried for a couple of minutes and by the time we left the shop she was happy and chatty again.
I think she looks adorable :)
What are your thoughts? Did you have your ears pierced when you were young? What about your kids? How do you feel about it?
