We took the plunge and cut my sweet, beautiful baby boys hair the other day. He was asking for it. He continued to push his hair out of his eyes, and literally say, "Momma can Mandi* come cut my hair, it's in my eyes!"
So we ventured out to the local Great Clips and had his light blonde hair cut into a typical little boy cut. And then it happened.
He turned into about a 7 year old.
In mere moments his little boy face went from baby like, to mature.
His hair went from fine blonde locks, to course, mousy, brown boy hair.
First time with a razor, first time having his side burns cut and he's 3!
But when all was said and done he looked just as sweet, maybe not so baby like, but cute as a button. And in typical Finn fashion, the only place I could catch him sitting still enough for a photo.....was here!

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!
