What a cutie pie! She looks so tiny! I love the last picture. It reminds me of like zoolander. That she stopped whatever she was doing and posed for it!The yellow outfit makes me want to smoosh her with kisses!

She’s gettign so big! sn’t it fun to watch them discover things? It’s so funny, I didn’t realize that folding hands like that is actually a milestone. The doctor asked me about it at Colt’s 4-month appointment and I thought “yeah, he’s been doing that forever”. But then I realized when he’s doing something cute, I should savor it because he’s LEARNING! Right before my eyes!R is beautiful and she looks so healthy and happy!

I’m not sure how you are swaddling, but it looks like you are using what we used. Some tips that worked for us: Put on socks that will not come off (Plain white 0-3 month GAP socks worked well) because when they don’t have socks on, their sticky/sweaty feet help to “grab” the cloth as they kick and it works free the interior Velcro. Also, after you place her well socked feet in the sack, tuck her right arm down by her body, pull the cloth over her chest and tuck it tightly under her left side. To make it tight, kind of roll her onto her right side as you are tucking the cloth under her left side, behind her back. The important part here is NOT to include both arms in that first (interior) flap! After that is nice and tight (see the theme here), then you can bring her left arm down to her side and snugly bring the outer flap over to Velcro it shut. That is what worked great for us. My husband often used the internal flap to wrap around both of his arms, and that allowed him to wiggle free. And if we had socks on that he would rub off, even if his arms stayed tight, his legs would be sticking out of the bottom by morning. If that doesn’t work, use a miracle blanket. I didnt do that cause I a cheap- but I heard they work well.
