Chris called us twice today. Sometimes we don't hear from him for weeks, so 2 times in one day was pretty special. The calls are very hard to hear. Not only is there a delay, but it is through a computer, so you can only hear one word from every sentence. Luke's end of the conversation went something like this...
"Love you, bye."
Tonight we tried the video camera thing which was a gift from his real life co-workers. It's cool to be able to see him and he gets a kick out of seeing us in action.
And tonight he got a lot of action.
He got to see the baby walking around and drinking from her sippy cup. She babbled a bit to him, then she tried to eat the camera.
Luke did a show and tell with off some of his new toys. It completely sounded like another language with all the Bakugan/Digimon/Pokemon verbiage.
The highlight of the call was when Maria came throwing up down the hall and into the bathroom. While I cleaned up things, I had Luke do more entertaining with Japanese cartoon figure talk. Maria did get to say a quick hello before heading off to bed again.
I think tonight he got a taste of how crazy life is here at home. I'm sure he is missing it. It is always interesting around here.
(I am predicting tomorrow there being a blog post about lack of sleep stemming from Maria's ongoing vomiting tonight. I am hoping there is an end in sight. So far she's been sick about every 15 minutes for the last 5 hours. Gatorade awaits when her fragile tummy is ready, and our green machine carpet cleaner is waiting in the wings.)
