Newborns are funny!

My poor baby. She can't yet control her arms and they literally flail around and upset her. It's so sad and funny to watch at the same time. She'll be all peaceful and ready to sleep and all of a sudden her hand will fly up and hit her in the face. Then her other hand. Then they'll start flailing about wildly and she will start crying. It's like she's saying, "What are these horrible things that keep bothering me? Why won't they go away?" She will be so happy when she gains muscle control over them!

A funny story from this week about her hands: We were dressing her up after her doctor's appointment and she reached behind her head and grabbed a fistful of hair. She immediately started screaming in pain, yet couldn't and wouldn't let go. She didn't know it was her own hand and it took two of us to pry her hand away from her hair. She was so upset by it! Poor thing! Yet so funny. Thank goodness for swaddling. It's giving us and her better sleep since it keeps her hands from escaping.

  1. I LOVE SWADDLING!!! Makes them look like a cacoon or something, but they love it and sleep so much better!
