Back around my birthday, my Dad came down to visit me. Alright, alright, we all know he was coming to visit with Emerson. Thanks to Apple’s ingenious FaceTime, we’re able to chat with Papa Whelan frequently. Even though Emmie couldn’t remember the last time she was with her Papa, she certainly wasn’t shy when he arrived!
Anytime she saw him, she immediately would give him a big goofy grin and speed crawl to get to him. They read books, watched it snow (on my birthday ugh!) and laughed hysterically when Papa would make a ‘pop’ sound with his mouth.
I’m so glad that we have ways to keep Family close, even when hundreds of miles separate us.
