In honor of Jonah turning 7 months on Sunday, we decided that he is now a big boy and should no longer be swaddled to sleep. It's been a tough few days for that reason. He now has to learn how to settle down by himself without having his arms restricted in a straight jacket. But, as with most things as he grows up, he has gotten the hang of it pretty quickly. He's had no problem with the nighttime sleeping, but we're still working on the naps. When you're an active little boy it's hard to keep your arms and legs still long enough to fall asleep. It's much more fun to lay in your crib and talk to yourself, chew on your blankie, examine your hands, play with your feet, pull out your paci, or stick your arm through the crib slats.
