As most of you probably know from reading my blog...I am rather smitten on my husband. Always have been. He's a dear to be sure.
He knows me. He really knows me. Kidding aside, that doesn't always mean he gets me! In the way that a husband should know his wife....Scott knows me through and through.
Valentines day isn't our favorite by any stretch. Too much money is spent on things that don't matter...too little time is spent on those that do and by golly...I think the goal of the day was lost long ago. But once in a while I feel like a glimpse of that meaning comes through..and boy oh boy did Scott do it for me yesterday.
He did not only gift me this necklace...he MADE me this necklace.
Not because he simply thought I might like it. But because...months...possibly more than a year ago I had emailed him a photo of a similar item I liked, but had wished it were gold. So he decided. That he would find the parts, stamp the names, punch the holes, and make me this necklace.....for Christmas.
Christmas came and went without me knowing a lick about this necklace. And then Valentines morning arrived, after a week of craziness and he gifted me his creation.
And you can think we're sappy, but after almost 10 years, 4 babies and much life....these are the moments that remind you what you set out to do....what seems like soooooo long ago.

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!
