We played around until about 10am and then she took a nap for an hour or so. After that, we went out and about. One of my fellow adoptive parents told me there were good frozen pizzas at the grocery store near the McDonalds so we ventured out. I found it and bought a pizza for tonight. So excited! Then we walked down Old Arbat for a few souvenirs and off to Chili's for lunch. Audrey did pretty good but got a little restless towards the end. I had forgotten what it was like to have a child crying in a restaurant. Check please! :) Now we are home, about to have a mid-afternoon bottle and then a nap. Supposedly there is a big bookstore down New Arbat a couple of blocks so we will probably check that out post-nap, pre-dinner.
OOh - 2 big successes to report. First and foremost - Audrey had a stinky dirty diaper this afternoon. Hooray. It was her first since I picked her up on Monday. They had given me glycerin suppositories for her but I was holding off using them until tomorrow if no action. Well - bam! Today was the day. Relief for both of us, I am sure. Second success - Audrey is sitting up on her own. She cannot get into a sitting position by herself but she has found her balance to stay there. So proud of her. Those little stomach muscles are just getting so strong. Yea Audrey! We will write again tomorrow.
Happy Birthday to Audrey's soon-to-be godmother - Kim Dean!
Hope all is well back home. Thanks for following along. Enjoy the pictures!
Kathy and Audrey

This was at 9:45am, taken from my apt,
looking at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.
|Our new method of feeding, working like a charm!|
|Look who is sitting up all by herself, just like a big girl! |
|Her bib says: I was worth the wait! |
My thoughts exactly! Love you sweet Audrey!
