We just returned from NYC, and it was great! What an incredible place! Of course we encountered blurps we did not forsee -- like losing Emmeline's sling on the first leg of the trip. Ultimately we carried her everywhere and she was as happy as could be. See? Sleeping in momma's arms, and living the high life in the apartment we rented.
Our older children were such troopers on this trip; we are so proud of them! We took in Ellis Island, the Liberty Science Center (which was spectacular), the Statue of Liberty, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum and Natural History, Shrek the Musical and The Lion King. Needless to say we were exhausted on our trip back ... which took almost nine hours start to finish.
We are caught up on laundry finally, and are back to our regular routine. Emmeline seems to have grown by leaps and bounds since before we left -- she is really engaging and giggly. We are trying to treasure her babyness as it disappears before our very eyes!
