UPDATED: The photo at the end is of my Mom and Dad. Duhh! Forgot to tell you all that!
I am not really sure what you call these things...but Lilly had her first performance last night with her pre-school class. How precious right?
Riiiighhht! What is precious about getting 4 very small children fed a wonderful dinner (Cereal and hard boiled eggs!) only to follow that by dressing your delightful children (or crabby from too short of a nap) in adorable matching outfits purchased for them by your mother (seriously...all joking aside...A.DO.RABLE). Actually it was quite ok. Only minor meltdowns prior to exiting the house regarding the fit of a certain 4 year olds dress. But that is completely normal and occurs, no matter the garment, on every single day. Thankfully my parents were able to meet me at my house, as Scott was unable to get home in time to help pack up. So off we went to this enormous Performing Arts Center to see my teeny-tiny baby sing in front of a few parents.
Riiiighht! So the auditorium was packed. I joke you not...PACKED! I believe it holds upwards of 500 people. All to see these little teeny-tiny children sing. So I parked my entourage in a whole row practically....yeah, we were like 2 rows from the back! Good thing I have a zoom lens....WHAT? I forgot it?
Come on...like I didn't have other things going on! I can't do everything right!
So...whilst my parents, sisters, husband, and alike kept an eye I snuck myself up to the front. But are you kidding me...even from the front you are still a cotton pickin' 50 feet away! Who's going to get a good shot of the teeny-tiny little girl from that far away. So I settled for a few "far out" shots...and chalked it up for a first timer!
But...as I said, all.in.all super adorable. The children behaved for the like....40 minutes it took and then we were outta there! Snapped a few shots of them going out and called it good. Good children, good performance, good outfits....good night!

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!
