For years, I've been asking Emerson if she wanted to get her ears pierced and she would always say no. I told her whenever she wants it done, we'll go get it done. She told me a few weeks before Michelle was leaving that she wanted it done. She said she wanted to do it before Michelle left. That's how much she loves Michelle!
She picked out the blue topaz because that's her birthstone. I was actually really surprised she didn't pick the pink studs.
You can't see from the picture but there is a blue marker dot where the the piercing will go.
She got to hold a little teddy bear to squeeze.
We all thought for sure she was going to cry. My friends son, Miles, came to just watch Emerson cry. When Eme told me that "Miles only wants to come to watch me cry." I told her, "Well Eme, you can prove him wrong." She responded just matter of fact, "No I won't!"
She was so brave. She had a little nervous smile the whole time. When the gun pierced her ear, she didn't even flinch. The 14 year old girl who got her ear pierced right before Emerson was way more nervous and had tears in her eyes when she got her piercing. Not Emerson, she was so tough!!!!
I love this face. Look how proud she looks.
