Day 7 - Shopping

We started off the day with a stinky diaper at breakfast...it was lovely. It was bad enough that I had to change her clothes. On a good note, Ana Kate only woke up 4 times last night....so we're making progress. After breakfast Doug found a store that had his size and bought some shorts...then we headed out to the Dong Xuan market. It was very crowded and extremely hot, but we found some neat things. After that we headed back to the hotel to cool off and let Ana Kate nap.

I thought I'd give a little summary of events of our 1st week with Ana Kate:

Hours in a car with an active baby girl and no car seat - 7
Bumps to baby girl's head - 4
Things I've had to fish out of baby girl's mouth - 3 (a flower, a leaf, and a staple...don't even ask...)
Diaper blowouts - 2
Number of times I've said 'No, no, no' - about 100 and now baby girl shakes her head 'no' every time I say it.

There are many more 'highlights' of our week...but those are some of the more memorable ones. Ana Kate does say 'Mama'....but we don't think she knows what it means....she babbles a lot and makes faces all the time. She is adorable and we love her. We can't wait to get her home to meet her big sister Whitney. We miss you Whitney and WE LOVE YOU!!

A few random pictures from today:
