Get Me Out Of This Thing!

Now this is interesting

Hey! What happened to my arms?

Get me outta here!

Ellie has a bit of a love-hate relationship with being swaddled. She is very active with her arms and legs, which means she's good at kicking and throwing off any covering we put on her. She has not really liked being constrained, though Nana was always encouraging it as comforting. But she could escape from most any normal blanket with Houdini-esque skill. Enter the Miracle Blanket (thanks Ron and Sue!). It has pockets that hold little Ellie's arms and legs, and it's long enough to wrap around her enough times to get a good hold on her. She absolutely loved it last night and slept peacefully and contentedly. (We chuckled when looking at her though — does she look more like a burrito or a caterpillar?)

Well tonight she wanted none of this swaddling nonsense, as captured in the sequence of pictures above. I think it will be back to her sleeping bag tonight, but who knows what may happen tomorrow?

If swaddling was good enough for baby Jesus, it's good enough for Ellie!
