On a more serious note, we took Jakob back to the doctor today, thinking he had another ear infection. He doesn't, thank the Lord. He does have a sinus infection, though, that has been hanging around for around three weeks. We started a stronger antibiotic tonight. Since he has taken that around 9 pm, he has broken out in a rash, especially on his face. He is asleep now with us, but is moaning and saying, "owie" in his sleep with a death grip on his chin and mouth. I feel pretty certain that he is having a reaction to this stronger medicine, but not quite sure what to do next. So, I'm off to pray and talk with Jared...and consult WebMD. Hope you and your are warm tonight!

The famous Love Block was catty-cornered from our hotel on this trip to NYC, so of course we couldn't pass up a photo-op! I DO love this man...a lot!
And then, there is the other love of my life, my sweet Jakob boy. I didn't realize how long it has been since I posted a picture of him! I will remedy that soon! After all, I STILL haven't posted pictures from Christmas, for crying out loud! Anyway, these are a few weeks old while he was so sick. As awful as his being sick was, we got the best cuddles out of that time! I am quite fearful of how my heart may burst when Miss Lily gets here. I cannot imagine feeling this for all three of my sweet loves: Jared, Jakob, and Lily. Bring it on!

These signs, and other like them, were sponsored by Mt. Sinai Hospital...too funny!
Central Park...I could have posted 3,000 of these, either from this trip or one of the other two times I've been! Good grief...
Jared and I were able to be in New York with our college choir in April before the World Trade Center attacks in September of 2001. Like of us I suspect, I am still very in awe at the events of that day. It really does seem so surreal at times when you aren't there all of the time. When we were in New York on our last trip (2005) we visited this church located directly across the street from the WTC site. If you don't know the story, there was not a single pane of glass broken in the church while the skyscrapers surrounding the WTC were damaged beyond salvage. It stands as an amazing testament and was used as a headquarters of sorts during the days and weeks following the attacks. It really is an amazing place to visit. The pictures above, though, are part of the story that touched my heart the most. In case you cannot read the inscription, here is what it says:
The beginnings of The Freedom Tower. This is going to be the coolest building, really.
The WTC Sphere that stood between the two towers the day they fell. The sculpture has been moved to nearby Battery Park for now.

Lucky Lily couldn't go unrepresented on St. Patty's Day! I made this little tribute shirt at like 11 pm the night before we left! Nothing like pre-planning!
Jared, on the other had, bought a shirt off of a vendor the night before so as not to be pinched (or shot) or whatever on Tuesday! The beads turned his neck green!
Here we are at the Statue of Liberty on the tour. More tour pictures to come later!

Jakob: "Mommy. Sit down."
Me: "How about you use your polite words."
Jakob: "Mommy. Sit down right now.......please."
Me: (deciding this was not the time for a teaching moment) "Okay."
It was the sweetest thing. I cannot wait to see him with her. I also cannot wait for the ear infection to be a thing of the past!
