This week Henry actually talked more than normal and they all loved it! I love hearing my Daddy laugh at my child through the phone. It makes my heart feel good. I love to hear my Mama smile through the phone when my sweet boy says her name. It is medicine for my soul. When Henry finally said "Juju pretty" to my favorite sister after months of poking and begging, my insides danced a little jig. Seriously, there is nothing cuter than him knowing his "people" even though he rarely sees them in person. He knows who David "Day Day", Daniel "Danel", and Anna "An-ne-na" are from our photo in the den and our occasional Skype sessions. I am sorry, Samuel, but he looks at you and says "baby"! I say all this to say, even if you live away from your family, you can still be as close as you want to be. It just takes a little time and offers a great reward package! Call someone you love today, shoot them an email or even better....send them snail mail. I challenge you.
