Kicking, Punching, and Screaming sometimes when being settled down for a nap

I am wondering if it is a temper tantrum when she does that.....I am not sure, I am a first timer and have nothing to compare it to. I rock her to sleep while she is doing this and she does eventually pass out but I am not sure why she does this sometimes. She is teething but honestly I think she has done this every now and then since birth. I wish I could figure it out before she gets older and stronger, lol. I want her not to do this but I have never done anything about it just hold her and rock her and sing to her and feed her. she is only eight months so I am hoping I can reason with her when she is a little older. She is very strong willed I think but she is so smart I do not realize if and when she is throwing a tantrum or whatever until we are full blown in it, lol. I hate to say though sometimes she is so dramatic when she is crying and stuff she kinda looks cute.......and I have to giggle.

My 2 year old will do this on a semi regular basis. Some nights he goes to bed without an issue and will actually put himself down for a nap. Other nights it is a battle of wills. Some nights I just hold his door shut as he kicks, screams, and throws things until he falls asleep.
