Ron and I have gone back and forth on whether or not we should get Kaitlyn's ears pierced while she's this young. In Miami (and Latin America in general) it's common for newborn girls to leave the hospital with earrings. We knew we didn't want to be that drastic, but we considered doing it before she turned one. We're still unsure. Ron and I both like the idea of her being old enough to look forward to getting her ears pierced. I vaguely remember getting mine done so I know I was a bit older. On the other hand, I kind of want to do it before she developes a fear of the needle. In the meantime, without earrings she's constantly being mistaken as a boy (mostly by locals here). She could be dressed head-to-toe in pink and someone will ask me "How old is he?" or "What's his name?" It drives me crazy! Of course an easy way to fix that is to put a headband or bow in her hair.
When she was very tiny I didn't like the idea of putting those elastic headbands on her because I thought they looked uncomfortable and silly. It wasn't until my sister gave me a "Baby's 1st Fourth" outift that came with a thicker, cotton headband that I tried on Kaitlyn and thought she looked adorable (as seen here). I have since looked for more headbands like that, but have found NOTHING. My sister-in-law gave me a pink one when we were home last month and it looked just as cute:
