To pierce or not to pierce

I know, it's been over a week since I've blogged about anything. What can I say, I've been a busy gal. First I want to thank everyone who stopped by to say "Merry SITSmas" to me last week. I will get back to each and every one of you, if I haven't already. My SITSmas ended with me finally sucumbing to the family stomach flu. Speaking of SITSmas, thanks for all the compliments on the baby in the stocking. That was actually a photo I used for a Christmas card 6years ago. That was one of the first portraits done of my, now 6yo, son when he was born.
Alright, so I was sick and then I spent the rest of my week catching up on orders for tutus. So here we are now and my question today is: Should I pierce Rose's ears?
My youngest, and only girl, will be turning 3 in two weeks. My husband has finally agreed to let me put holes in Rose's ears, but now that it comes down to it I just can't decide. I'd love to hear some pros and cons about this in my comments. This summer I went around asking any mother I saw with a pierced eared todler about the experience and I even went around to places that pierce ears asking about their methods. So I feel I'm well informed on the decision.
How old were you when you had your ears pierced? Are they pierced? Have you pierced your daughters ears? What was that experience like? Where did you have it done?

We have decided to wait until she insists herself and can understand that it will be sore.

Pop in at my blog - I am having a little giveaway tomorrow.

Both of my girls got theirs done when they were three. Neither of them wear earrings now. They have very sensitive ears...and they get infected easily. But...the holes are there, and not going away.

I say do it...
