Lately, Dennis has been traveling for work a lot more than he usually does. I am not a fan of him being gone - nor is he. With him there and me here, you'd think that it is difficult for us to talk to each other between feedings, working, taking care of Connor, Echo, traveling, and all of the other fun stuff that goes on during a typical day. Somehow, though, Dennis and I still manage to talk to each other numerous times throughout the morning..and, well, throughout the afternoon and night, as well.
The point that I'm trying to make is that when he's out of town, we still talk to each other. A lot.
Upon occasion, I don't have a whole lot to say. Especially in the morning, before my more-than-generous-gallon-of-caffeine has touched my lips. Earlier this week, I thought that Dennis might like to wake up to a short video of Connor and Echo so I pulled out my trusty iPhone and got the crew in place. I was hoping that Connor might smile or possibly goo or giggle for a quick second.
I couldn't have been more wrong.
Dennis appreciated this form of communication much more than a typical phone call or text message. Without saying a word, Connor managed to say "good morning" better than I could have ever said it.
In fact, Connor hasn't learned how to talk but he has definitely learned how to make us smile. And laugh. And Dennis can attest to the fact that it's typically pretty hard to get me to do that before 7AM.
