Early birthday present

Ella got an early 5th birthday present over the weekend- she got her ears pierced!! She picked out little, pink flowers. They look so pretty! She's been talking about it for quite a while, and we thought yesterday seemed like a good day to do it. She was so brave! We tried to prepare her and told her it was going to hurt. We gave her every chance to back out, but she kept saying, "I know it's going to hurt, but I am going to do it!" She sat up in that chair, held my hands, and when the earrings went in, she jumped a little and then started giggling. We couldn't believe it! The brave facade didn't last all that long though- she was in tears by the time we left the store. =) Today, however, she is much better and can't wait to "surprise" everyone on her birthday. =)
