Well as most of you know Colt had surgery yesterday. He did really well, everything went just as Dr. Jia had hoped. But we had another surgery yesterday that even I didn't know about till it was happening..........Riley got her ears pierced!! I can't believe she did!!! We were at Wal-mart picking up Colt's medicine and she noticed a pair of Tinkerbell earrings, I told her that she couldn't have those earrings until she got her ears pierced, thinking that would be the end of that. Well she surprised me with "Ok, I want to get my ears pierced." WHAT!!?? My little girl that is scared of everything wants to get her ears pierced?? I just assumed that as we picked out earrings she would start to panic and that would be the end of that.....man was I wrong. She was sooo excited about this!! She went through all the steps and never thought a thing about it, until the earrings went through. She cried for just a minute and then she was done. I am soooo proud of her!!! She's been doing a really great job of turning them every once in awhile and didn't even cry when it was time to clean them. I can't say how proud I am of her, she really is growing up!!!!
Picking out earrings!!
I'm ready!!

This is when I thought she would lose it.

Still cool as a cucumber.
OUCH!!!
I forgot to get an after picture, but I'm sure she will have no problem showing them off. She LOVES them!!!
I didn't get any pictures of Colt before surgery but man I wish I had. When they gave him what they call "Beetlejuice" it was the funniest thing I've seen in awhile. He was so dazed and confused, it was hilarious!!! I'm thinking that no one really wants to see his before and after pictures!! hahahaha!!

I'm so proud of you to Riley, you was such a big girl. And by the way she did get her tinkerbell earrings, keep up the good work on cleaning and turning them. Love you, Nana

I am glad everything went good with Colt. How cute is Riley?!! Ella got her ears pierced also. And she is TERRIFIED of needles. She was so pumped to get them done and didn't even bat an eye. I keep telling her that getting your ears pierced is the same as getting a shot and that she doesn't need to cry next time she goes to the doctor. She told me that "it is not the same. You have to get bandaids." Oh well, we only have a few more weeks and we'll be able to take them out. Now that might be a whole other issue!

Riley did great! Emily still resists the idea of needles going through her ears. But since Lily and Ella have it done and now Riley, she is thinking that getting the ears pierced might not be a bad idea. Guess we'll wait and see how brave she is...
So glad things went well for Colt.
