I have a love/hate relationship with swaddling. On the one hand, I feel all cozy and warm. It’s like I’m giving myself a long, gentle hug, and before I know it I’m out.
On the other hand, I know mom-lady is doing this because she intends to put me down, and I already told you I don’t like being put down. I feel her wrapping me up, pinning my arms to my side, and I resist. I kick, I scream, then my eyes get all heavy and I wake up four hours later.
IT’S LIKE A DRUG, THE SWADDLE BLANKET!
Plus, I feel a bit like a crazy person in a straight jacket, and I don’t think the swaddle is at all flattering to my cheeks.
My cheeks are awesome. I know because everyone keeps saying so.
I wish they’d stop kissing and biting on them, though…
Join me in this 31 Day series as I survive the newborn haze of sleepless nights, endless nursing, and squeezing in life in twenty minute increments throughout the day.

I’ll share photos every day, some of them good, and some of them mediocre, because baby leaves me little time to worry about taking and editing the perfect photos.
I’ll also be sharing my daughter’s thoughts, as dictated to me telepathically while she nurses, because she has informed me that she is a mind ninja, and I am merely her portal to the outside world.
Her words, not mine.

I love reading all about you, Annika. You must have such an awesome life!! I can’t wait to be holding you whenever I get to see you. Sometimes I Skype your sister, and I can see you. Usually when I get to see you, you are sleeping.
Hi Mia! I can’t wait until I’m not so sleepy so that I can play with you guys because Tia talks about how awesome you are all the time!
Oh, I don’t blame you for being sleepy. When I was a baby at your age I was sleepy as well. If you are not to sleepy then could you tell Tia that she is pretty awesome too, and I am sure that when I get to see you, then I am sure that you will be pretty awesome too. Y
ou are so pretty in your pictures and I am sure that you are even more pretty then you are on this blog.
