Rose has Skyped with her dad a few times before when we've been apart, but this time she seemed to have an actual sense of what was going on—she really was seeing her daddy on the screen. It was pretty dang cute to watch. And it was quite a relief for me. Let's just say that Rose didn't have the easiest time in Arizona. In a new, strange environment with lots of new people (not to mention, a horrible diaper rash, some digestive issues, bad sleep, and who knows what else... possibly teething? altitude change?) she just was not her usual happy self. Of course, a few days of handling this on my own made me an incredibly weary parent! Still, she managed to revert back to a sweet, happy baby when Skyping with her dad. Each one of these screenshots represents of moment of grace for me.
