Especially for Daddy

Since Grant has gone back to work, he's gone into a sort of withdrawal from his beloved little girls. In fact, he almost daily asks me at some point in the late afternoon to start a video chat with him at work because he misses looking at us. Mind you, he can't hear me. He can't talk to me. He can just look at me in a little window and chat as he normally would with his keyboard. But he likes just to see us, even if I'm busy feeding Kendra or if he has a project going on that he needs to pay attention to--he can still glance over at his other screen (he has two at work) and see his little girls in the bottom corner and it makes him feel better.

In his withdrawal, he puts no small amount of pressure on me to capture the moments he might miss.

So this one's for you, Daddy (turn up the volume for full effect).

I love to hear babies breathing when they are sleeping.

Yup, sometimes when I can tell Simeon has fallen asleep in his room because if I put my ear up to the crack between the door and the doorjam I can hear him breathing really deeply. It is the best and I love it :)
