Yes, I finally did it. I told myself I had to wait until she was at least 6 months old and we reached that mark. Tori has earrings!! She was very brave. We went to the mall yesterday and I held her head still and she only cried for a total of maybe 10 seconds. They don't seem to bother her at all. She hasn't tried to grab them or anything. She even slept through the night! Maybe I should have done this sooner.
Secondly, Tyler still loves wearing his Spiderman costume all day long. He understands that he can only wear it at home because we can't get his seatbelt on with all those huge muscles. But as soon as he gets home, he wants to be Spiderman. Anyway, he told me yesterday that Spiderman likes to chase bad guys. I told him that was right and he said, "And when he catches the bad guys, he goes like this..." and then he pretended to throw a squash at the 'bad guys'. I said, "I thought Spiderman throws spider webs." He said, "All the spider webs are all gone, so now Spiderman uses this." I guess super-heroes have to think on the fly and use what's available. I thought it was cute that he's throwing squash instead of bombs or knives or guns or grenades or even rocks. I'm not sure Tyler will ever catch a bad guy using a squash, but I think the world would be a better place if we replaced guns with produce.
