What a day it has been!
This morning, we got up and got ready to go!
How did I end up with two, tiny, teenagers? Look at these kids! HA! This is where the title of this post came from... I'm totally picturing these kiddos as a bit bigger with slightly (yeah, yeah, I'm dreaming) bigger attitudes.

As cute as these pics are, I don't want my little babies to grow up too fast!
Ahhh, well....
Next, I asked them to pose for a picture. Both kids, looking at the camera, oh so sweet...

And then they thought I looked away. I SWEAR I didn't stage this. As soon as I snapped the pic, Lilly went back to "texting" (ok, she's just playing, but it looks like that) and Zac went immediately back to manhandling furnature.

I took Zac over to my mom, who watched him today, so we could take Lilly to the mall for EAR PIERCING!
She has wanted it but we wanted to wait until she was old enough to understand it and not pull on her ears (since we missed the boat on getting them done when she was a baby). She was so excited! Here she is, walking in with daddy.

We got her in the chair, and she was so excited! They couldn't do both ears at the same time, so we were worried about how (and IF) ear two would go.
Marking the ears - she started getting nervous here.

So, camera went into the purse and Lilly held both of our hands for the piercing.
Ear one... OUCH! We had a little whine and a look of surprise (ok, ok, mixed with "how can you let this happen"... but I swear we had told her that it would be loud and hurt for a minute!). The lady whipped out her mirror and showed Lilly the earing, which immediately gave her the motivation she needed for ear two.
Ear two ... WHEW, DONE! Lilly didn't seem as hurt as this one, I think because she realized that it was OVER.
Here she is, showing off her new earings and her lollipop! So proud!
I am so proud of my little girl!

YAY! I'm so proud too! What a fun day!

They give lollipops for ear piercing now??!! That's good to know... well, having boys, I probably don't need to know, but it's interesting.

Glad you had a good day!

So pretty! What a brave little girl

Wow. What a huge milestone for Lilly. Is this an early 3rd birthday present as well?

That "true" picture of the kids is hilarious. Do you sometimes wonder how your house isn't more destroyed? Like huge holes in the wall and wires hanging out destroyed? I wonder that about my own house.

Who did Zac's hair?

Suzanne said...

Congrats Lilly! You're a big girl now! So cute, and great hair Zac!

Natalie, I did Zac's hair.

And, you are so kind to assume that my house isn't completely destroyed.
The assumption is wrong, but kind.

Yay for Lilly! I am at work and made the mistake of looking at this blog...a mistake becuase when I got to the non-posed picture of Zach knocking over the desk and Lilly texting that I laughed out loud, way too loud for an office! And now I have to sit here and hold it in because it's sooo funny!
