Swaddle Fail

After a couple of nights of Baby Girl being harder to put to sleep, being more restless while she was asleep and waking up earlier, I decided to take on the battle of Operation: Sleep 2009.  I gave her a little bit more to eat at her last feeding, kept the lights low, swaddled her with her arms wrapped up tight, placed her in my arms on her side, swayed and ssshhhed her until she fell asleep.  The author of Happiest Baby on the Block would have been proud.  When I laid her down all snug and proud of myself, I was mentally writing a post about how I got my kid to sleep through the night. 

Then she woke up at 1:45 (earliest time yet) with her arms pulled out of the blanket and flailing around like she was attempting lift off.  I repeated the sequence of events when I put her back down and when the husband went to check on her at 5:30 she was wide awake and completely out of her blanket.
