This is my feeling the last few days. The sheer fact that I have neglected to post anything since last Wednesday shows something.
I have been feeling a little harried the last couple of days for sure. I think my babies "honeymoon" has begun to diminish...and I mean all of my babies. Here's the rundown:
Lilly: Usually rather well behaved I will say. The sassy little girl in her is coming out. She is also discovering how to "play" mommy; this has been an eye opening experience for sure.
Finn: He is typically mellow and easy to please. The last couple of days he has become an emotional wreck! He stomps at the drop of a hat, and cannot seem to go an hour without a meltdown! My threats to spank have multiplied exponentially and I have had to fulfill more than usual.
Sylvi: My poor baby...we took away the nuk Saturday night. Ok..before you all go and stone me for doing that to her when she just got a baby sis less than 3 weeks ago...please know my husband took charge on this one! It was NOT my idea (sorry to throw you under the bus hunny!) During the day she is fine...nap time and morning time are another story! And guess who's a daddy's girl? She has begun screaming for "daddy daddy" all the time. What am I, chopped liver?
Pearl: She is still rather angelic...sleeps almost all the time. Today however, has been a little crank meister for sure! But, as I said, rather angelic!
Now that this is written out it doesn't sound that bad. Well...all things looked at with logic are not as bad as they seem (and feel). I will plug on however...and "I'll make it I swear."

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!
