Happy Birthday Lilly!

Happy Birthday Lilly!

Posted by Alicia Overby on 7th May 2019

There has been a lot of baking going on here lately! A lot of girly baking.

We've done colorful, we've done cake in a jar, we've done tiered cakes..you name it!

But today, May 13th, this little girl in all her 7 year old goofiness has her birthday! Where does the time go? You remember the first pregnancy so well...the first labor and the first newborn. I remember it all as if it were yesterday. She was my sole focus. She drove us to step out in faith.

I think back to just over a week ago when our youngest, the (cry) baby, turned 3 and think some of the same things. But it's not the same as that first babe. At least for me it's not.

It was no more or less special than the others, but just a time when my brain had all the time in the world to wrap itself around what was happening. And then that was it. We had Lilly Hope. She was my smallest baby (2 lbs smaller) at 7 lbs 7 oz.

And now I'm crying just like the baby below...remembering and feeling that moment all over again!

Happy Birthday Lilly. You're goofy, smart, and incredibly mature. I love everything about you...even on a bad day. I am blessed to be your momma!

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!
