Kisses on FaceTime

On the way to Houston
I went out of town for a wedding over the weekend.  It's not the first time I've ever left Brandon overnight by any means, but it's certainly been a while.  I needed this weekend away.  I've been slammed at work and with my master's degree.  My head's been spinning.  I spent the weekend with one of my best friends.  We had a weekend of girl talk, wine, relaxation, and some exploration of Houston.  We celebrated our dear friend's marriage, and it was a wonderful weekend.

Brandon and I "talked" (I use quotes because Brandon is nonverbal) on FaceTime while I was away.  He's used FaceTime with his dad and his grandma, but he's never been interested.  I don't think he ever realized he was talking to someone live.  I think he just thought he was watching a really boring video.  When he saw me though, he had his eyes locked on me.  I held on a "conversion" with him for at least 10 minutes.  I yapped away, imitated sounds he made, "read" his favorite book from memory, and even sang him some songs.  If you all could see me with this kid, you would understand how weird I can really be.  We're constantly running, singing, and dancing around the house.  With every minute that passed, I was amazed at his concentration on me.  I was reminded of how in sync Brandon and I are.  It felt amazing to be able to make a connection with him from so far away.

I blew him some kisses, and to my amazement he blew them back!  He's never done that before.  He's only just now starting to make the "muah" sound when he actually gives a kiss.

When I came home he gave me a huge smile and cupped my face in his hands.

It's the little things :)


  1. Wonderful! So glad you guys are able to connect even when you're away!

  2. This is so sweet. I understand completely how significant this is. He just can't get any cuter.
