Am I alone to feel as if my 22 lb. baby boy has the strength of an ox at times? It seems that when I need him to mold his body to his car seat, lay still so we can fall asleep when we’re in the bed together, or simply allow me to change his diaper - he somehow musters up the superhuman strength needed to nearly wiggle his way out!
