Yay for photos but sounds exhausting.
I crave ice cream and milk right now, ice exam bc my throat is raw from coughing, I'm how I'd do no dairy. On a plus side I just ordered a cotton halo for ema and express shipped it so it'll be here Monday. She loves to be swaddled but I can't do traditional bc of her harness....
Awe poor girl! What about just folding a blanket into a long rectangle and tightly doing her top half only? My DS1 could escape a swaddle from Day 1 and I used to do a regular swaddle first, then do a long rectangle and re-wrap his top half again just to keep his arms in tight (and that worked for a few weeks before I just let him be free because he got loose of that too, LOL).
Oh, she is just the cutest thing ever!! Yes, many times a good swaddle can definitely help calm a fussy baby. Have you ever read the book, "The Happiest Baby On the Block"? I read that when I was in the midst of trying to deal with my first dd. It has some really good suggestions, that definitely did make a difference and help with my dd. Maybe look into reading that Kia (it's a pretty quick read).
Ema is so cute.
