And so every year this is when it begins. The season of celebration begins with an Overby Family celebration. We host and they all come for a day of festivities. We exchange gifts, we eat a meal (prepared by yours truly of course!), we play cards.
Well they play cards...I don't!
And then we open gifts. And when we do, I assure you it is mass chaos! There is paper flying, giggles giggling, a boy yelling, flashes flashing. But it seems there was one tiny babe who enjoyed it thoroughly!
And another bunny who was quite chilly after a little jaunt in the blizzard that was happening outside.
But after a long day, I have to say, I am so thankful to have the husband and family that God has gifted me. That gift, is the best I could ask for...no....MORE than I could ask for. And after this, it will continue. The celebrations. The gift opening. The thankfulness.
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!
