 This Sunday we celebrated Grandma Karen's Birthday!!

 Who needs birthday cake when the Birthday Girl requests 
Chocolate Chip cookies (from the DoubleTree Hotel) & Oberweis Ice Cream?

Baby Face Friday: 18 Weeks

Weight: 16lbs 2oz - 82%
Height: 25.75 inches - 90%
Sleep: Sleeping thru the night but fighting going down for about an hour.  Any suggestions out there? Maybe I'm not putting her down early enough.

As soon as you put her down on her back, she rolls over.  
Drooling and chewing on anything she can get her hands on.
