he started shaking, his arms were shaking really fast. I wish I could record it and show people, but I don't know whats going on with him... does this seem normal?

She still does it sometimes when she is tired.

no, it was a whole different shaking. my best description is when a chicken is flapping its wing, it looked kinda like that

Was it the Moro reflex? The baby flings its arms out like it things its falling. Often they might shake the arms or legs briefly then they bring them back in as though hugging themself

I've only ever seen one of my boys shake, I think it was a fever induced seizure as it happened in the middle of the night when he had an extremely high fever. It only happened once so nothing was ever made of it.
