Ear Piercings and Birthdays


Carleigh turning 4 was a big deal and as with most other things the younger children are able to do things at younger ages than their siblings.  Caty got her ears pierced at 6, Lizzy and 5 and Carleigh at 4 years old.  She was super excited and only cried for a second!

These earrings did well for a couple months until they became infected and we played the ear squeezing game for the next 6 months until the infections went away.  Now she is coming up on 5 years old and no longer has nor does she want earrings.

As with all birthdays for girls in the family, Carleigh go her flowers from me and cookie flowers from Nana.  At this time we are within a month of getting out of the rental house.  It couldn't come fast enough.

While in the rental house, I had to sleep during daytime up in the girls room.  all 3 girls shared a bedroom above the master bedroom.  3 beds and one dresser.  Meanwhile, Brian had all the other dressers in his room.  I would sleep in Caty Lynne's bed on top of Lizzy's bed.  It was about 4 feet off the ground and very soft.  I would drape sheets and blankets over the window in the room to get some darkness.  It didn't help to have the fire station right next door as the sirens would wake me up frequently.
