Long distance msg to Uwe

Uwe is out of state on a business for a few days and we're separated by 2,245.5 miles. This will be the longest amount of time that Uwe will be away from the baby since she was born. We joked about getting a webcam so that Uwe would be able to see the baby everyday, but for now we'll just have to do with daily pics of Astrid on my blog. I know Uwe misses her terribly and hates to be away from her for so many days. Especially now since any day she will be crawling and he doesn't want to miss that. But hopefully this post will help cheer him up a little bit.

We used a webcam during the China trip. It freaked TK out at first, but then he started to dig it.

That is such a perfect picture.

Would like to add that I miss my wife as much as the little one.

I'm impressed at how well she writes already. ;)

Hopefully Astrid won't crawl while Uwe is away. And in that regard, you might appreciate this story- when I was one I stayed with my grandparents while my mom visited my dad overseas (he was in the Navy and was stationed in the Philippines for 4 months). My mom was so worried that I'd take my first step while she was away, so my Grandma used to joke that she'd knock me over every time I'd stand up to try and discourage me from walking!! Ha Ha!! Didn't work though- when my mom came home and walked through the front door, I took my first step right into her arms!
