Around 4:30, Audrey and I headed out for a walk around Old Arbat street. I was starving as I had not really eaten anything today except for Pringles. Old Arbat is all souvenirs and little restaurants (many American - like Wendy's, Subway, Sbarro, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Cinnabon, Hard Rock Cafe and McDonalds). I have to admit, I broke down and went to McDonalds. It was fast, easy and cheap. I wasn't sure how Audrey would be dining out so I didn't want to risk Hard Rock or Chili's just yet - maybe tomorrow. Any CSS families out there have some dining suggestions for me?
We have tomorrow all to ourselves. Lots of time to practice sitting and her army crawl and so many other things. I hope the weather is relatively nice so we can go for a couple of short walks too.
Okay - as for eating. She absolutely will not eat from a spoon - not apples, not peaches, not cereal, not baby yogurt. Nothing. She also hasn't been eating more then 2-3 oz from the bottle during a sitting either. This afternoon though she did great and ate 5 whole oz. We celebrated. Then, this evening, I tried putting a bit of rice cereal and pureed apples in her formula which seemed to work. She ate about 4oz. We will keep at it. Her little world has been rocked in the past 24hrs. As long as she isn't hungry, eating well will come, right? Anybody have any advice for me?
I am being so bad with pictures this trip. Sorry! Here are a couple from today.

More to come tomorrow. Thanks for following along. Please - if you have any advice on how to best feed Audrey or suggestions for fun restaurants in the New/Old Arbat area, comment here on my blog or shoot me an email.
