Aubree did not enjoy her first bath tub experience (I assume this was her first real time spent in a tub)! She freaked out crying and stood up grabbing the side of the tub the whole time. But we got the job done as fast as we could and got her dressed and she was just fine. Maybe when she sees her big sister, Brenna, playing in the bath tub she will join her. She had a long 4 hour nap today and didn't pee once while she slept! She woke up and got right on the potty and went pee. Amazing! She is tired again already because she has been walking all over the apartment non stop checking everything out. The light switches are really low here so she spends lots of time turning the lights on and off.

Our little one sure can eat. We can't cut up chicken fast enough! And she loves bananas. Hopefully, she'll keep up this good appetite.

We posted a couple new pictures of her in the "Introducing Aubree" album at:

Dave and I got a pizza tonight for dinner. It just didn't cut competition for the pizza in America! But the dessert was great!!

We'll probably spend the weekend walking around Kiev and doing some shopping. Brenna has asked us to buy her a Barbie doll so we will have to go searching for that. Hopefully, we can find a toy store near our apartment.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Shannon and Dave
