Mom and Dad's Azalea bush was in full bloom, so I took advantage of the moment by taking some sweet pictures of my little girl in front of them...I at least got one!!
The real story I need to share though is the fact that Malia got here ear's pierced this past week. If you look closely you can see her earrings in the pictures.
We went to Merle Norman to get it done. She went in all brave and confident and got right up in the chair with no problem. The lady talked her through the whole process and she responded back that she was ready. Then we did the first ear....and it was all over. Uncontrollable screams, drooling uncomprehending speech...the whole nine yards. After about 15 minutes of that we decided to go home and have a little ice cream and reassess the situation.
After a fudge bar and a pep talk she was ready again. Once again she walked right in and got right in the chair. She talked to the lady and told her she was ready, and when we pierced the second ear....she laughed!
She jumped down and ran to the mirror and admired her beautiful ears. She was full of smiles and giggles the rest of the afternoon and anyone we came in contact learned real quick that she "was a big girl and got her ear's pierced and didn't even cry."
Luckily the second memory erased the first.
