It was a pretty 'typical' labor for me. It was my first induction...so that was a bit different as my first two children had come naturally...2 weeks early! But the induction went very smoothly. We had a photographer come for the first time and have the most amazing memories to show for it. Labor was fast and relatively easy....ok what I mean is...as far as labor is concerned I was focused on the task and make it through wanting to have 100 more babies! My husband and I are a pretty amazing labor and delivery team. He is my rock. Without his hand and his heartbeat I think I would fail miserably and just curl up and wait. With him there...I am calm (mostly), quite (mostly) and ready to welcome a beautiful addition into the world. Well I guess that's how I remember it anyway....it's nice that way!
And here she is...Sylvi Suzanne...a beaming ray of light in our life. She is our free spirit who bounces back immediately from any adverse situation. She is smiley and giggly and has a laugh that can make a smile pop on ANYONE's face upon hearing it. I can't believe she's 4!
And this my friends....is exactly how she requested her cake. I think Finn may have had some input. I think.

Alicia is wife, mother, and creator of Baby Elephant Ears. Baby Elephant Ears was created out of parental concern, not financial desire. In 2005, when their second child was an infant, he cried all the time and just couldn't seem to get comfortable.
After seeking advice and suggestion from the medical community and alternative medicine, they eventually ended up in the chiropractors office where their baby was successfully treated for a subluxation, discomfort most likely the result of the strain during labor, which was now being exacerbated by the normal lack of infant neck strength. Only proper neck, head, and back alignment would offer him relief. When they couldn't find a product to give their baby the necessary support, Alicia took matters into her own hands and crafted her own infant support pillow. The first Baby Elephant Ears was born!
