Rolling Along: The Swaddle is Gone

Vivernations (how do I come up with these names?), your swaddling days are done. You will be 5 months old in 4 days. Oh, my gosh, girl! Slow down!!! If you are indeed my last baby then you need to stay sweet and little for a bit longer.

You spent all of last night rolling around like a little log in your crib. We've been trying to get you to learn how to sooth yourself a bit at night. I didn't feel like it was fair to keep you swaddled so that you couldn't stick a finger in your mouth. But, you still startle when laid down so we started swaddling one arm. Haven discovered you in your crib like that. It looked like you only had one arm and said, "Vivi's broken." It does kind of look that way. Anyway, you spent the night with one arm out rolling. You'd try to get ahold of the rail to pull you over since you only had the one arm. When you finally did flip you were really mad. Really mad. I had to go in and take your other arm out and sooth you to sleep. But, it seemed like every time I looked at you in the monitor you were rolling around. Who wants to sleep when they can log roll all night? Well, I do, but you didn't. I love you Viv. You are my little Sunshine. Just looking at your face makes me happy.
