We did Keira's ears as a baby but when Nairi was a baby I was too busy with 3 kids 3 and under to want to do ear care. I figured we would pierce her ears when she was in school or whenever she asked. For the past few months she has been telling us she needs earrings " Because I am a girl so I need earrings!" So we finally took her to the mall and got it done at the ripe old age of 3. She did great! Keira is a softie for sure but Nairi has some fierce courage and determination. She knows what she wants for sure.
