Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created byMckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

If any of you have been reading my blog for very long, then you know plenty about how my little cupcake has been having difficulty sleeping {especially since at 6 weeks she was sleeping 10-12 hours at night and now at 6 mo she will wake up every 3-4 hours}, naps included!

Lately, I've discovered that the more active we are and the more stimulated {but not over stimulated} I can get her, the better she crashes sleeps soundly at night! So we make it a point to get out of the house at least once a day to either run errands or something fun! I've even found that she will fall asleep while we are driving around and will have the best naps that way too!


Since my baby girl has been having sleep problems I would definitely not be messing up her sleep schedule by staying out later than the time she usually goes down for the night. No way, not me! I would be sure to keep her on a strict schedule to ensure she is able to sleep the best she can.

So last Thursday night, when I was invited to a dinner over at friends house with some other ladies, I definitely declined and stayed home to put the baby to bed on time!

And then after this dinner with friends that we did not partake in, it wasn't over an hour after cupcake should have been in bed that we finally headed home. And on that drive home that we didn't go on, cupcake absolutely no way fell asleep in the car seat practically as soon as the car started. She most certainly did not sleep the whole way home, even more soundly than she does in her crib!

When we finally got home from the dinner that we never went to, when I brought cupcake into the house she definitely did not stay sound asleep! And I would never, being the new and overly cautious mother, leave cupcake in her car seat, in her room. There is no way that I would leave her in there sleeping so peacefully and I would never hope that she stayed asleep all through the night in her car seat. No, I am a decent mother who would at least get her child out of the car seat to put her pj's on and put her in her crib to sleep!

And finally, I would never, ever lay awake wondering if I was being a bad mother and there for not even get to enjoy the sound sleep that my baby was not having in her car seat!

Nope! Not me! :)

LOL. There were a few times where Ryan slept a good 3+ hours in his carseat. Never all night, but most certainly through entire afternoon long naps!
