I warned Elisabeth before hand that it would hurt for a minute, maybe similar to a bee sting. After ward she said to me, "Mom, that hurt WAY worse than a bee sting." But she didn't cry! Her eyes welled up with tears, but she held them in and was very brave.
I took the picture above as the lady was doing the very first piercing. I didn't notice until I went back and looked through these pictures, but doesn't it look like Elisabeth is holding on for dear life?! :) We asked her if she wanted to hold one of our hands but she said no.
She choose some cute little blue flowers
