Noise question - am I pixel peeping too much?

Here's a typical picture cropped a bit of my daughter.

Am I being overly critical of the noise from ISO 800?

I generally print no larger then 8x10, or upload to smugmug. I do use them at near full resolution as my desktop and that's where I notice the noise the most.

Opinions about the noise, pro and con are welcome. I want to enjoy the camera but getting a feeling of how the noise is straight out of the camera will help.
