Oh gosh, Aiko looks bigger and a bit different from the set of pics taken during her last birthday (only two months ago)! She's really growing up fast!

Thanks, Mandyy. :)

You're welcome!!!
The time interval between her birthday photos (taken in mid-Nov) and Prince Naruhito's (Feb. 13) are nearly 3 months.
I also thought that she grew a lot.
Maybe we'll even see more changes from the photos of her beginning kindergarten this coming April.

She could hardly look more like her father. It's almost uncanny.

I've noticed that too... good enough to be Empress Aiko after her father I would say!

From Prince Naruhito's press conference prior to his birthday, he told reporters that he's currently enjoying in watching in the Turino Winter Olympics with Aiko. When asked which sport Aiko enjoys the most, he answered they she enjoys watching snowboard cross, speed skating and ski.

And from the regulatory press conference on Feb, 24 by the Chief chamberlain to the Crown prince's household, he told the press that Aiko and her parents were tremendously happy about the news of Shizuka ARAKAWA winning the gold medal in the ladies figure skating yesterday.

I bet Aiko enjoyed the show a lot especially with her country winning the gold and it was the first medal for the Japanese team in the 2006 winter olympics.

Princess Aiko is currently learning how to skate too.

Thanks, Mandyy. I bet they did enjoy watching Shizuka Arakawa win -- it was a beautiful performance; great way to win a gold. I must admit that as an American I was rooting for Sasha Cohen who is also such a beautiful skater, but Arakawa sure earned the gold!

Aiko's cousin Princess Kako is a keen figure skater. There were photos released of her skating for either one of her birthdays or her father's. ( Akishino)

Instead of a trip to Tokyo Disneyland, the crown prince couple went to Tokyo Ueno Zoo with Princess Aiko and friends of the couple along with their kids on March 6, 2006. This was Aiko's first trip to the zoo. At the zoo, she also met with the 2 elephants that were given to her from the Thai government as a gift celebrating her birth in 2001. She also had fun interacting with baby animals.

The zoo normally closes on Monday, and because of this the crown prince couple arranged this trip on this day for Aiko. They stayed from 10 am to 3 pm and had bento with their friends.

As mentioned before, the crown prince couple wanted Aiko to have various experiences as she grows and this was especially planned before she enters Gakushuin kindergarten this April.
