Today was not unlike some of our days lately, where Momma has to get some work done. So...in an effort to change it up we headed downstairs to play with some toys that don't get used that often.
My mom stopped for a quick visit which broke the morning up wonderfully. The children raced around the room for no less than a half hour...nicely....encouraging one another...oh it was bliss. We then headed up for lunch...a la carte as usual...salami, zucchini, ants on a log, pretzels and orange. Then it hit me....remember 'monkey teeth' made from orange peels? In a goofy moment I fashioned some 'monkey teeth' of my own and popped into the dining room bouncing around and making monkey like noises! The children loved it!
And of course...they all wanted their own. So I made some child-sized monkey teeth and watched the fun unfold. Just a quick glimpse...form the seldom moments I could compose myself enough to snap a photo!
(check out the blurriness...I can't even stop giggling to take this!)
My only regret...that I couldn't include myself in any of these (b/c I can't find my 35mm lens and only have a zoom lens)
Written by Alicia Overby - Founder & President of Baby Elephant Ears
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!
