Skype Hype & Uncle Matt

I know I may be a few years behind on this, but tonight, I had my first experience with Skype.

My dad has been working in Baltimore sice Hayes was 10 weeks old, and we don't get to see him as much as we'd like. Papa Rick has always been one of Hayes' favorite people. In the beginning Papa Rick was the only person other than me that could get Hayes to be chill. He even kept Hayes at my house for the first 2 weeks I was back at work. During those two weeks, Dad spoiled ME rotten and took amazing care of his grandbaby, Hayes.

Dad called yesterday and asked if I had ever heard of Skype, which of course I had. Neither one of us knew how it worked, but tonight, we both downloaded it to our computers and had a phone/video conversation. I was pretty amazed at the quality and speed! If you have relatives out of town, I would highly recommend it... oh, and it's FREE!!!!

Tonight (prior to my Skype experience), Hayes and I went to visit my brother and sister-in-law at their new house in Homewood. They closed about a month ago and this was my first time to see it! It looks beautiful already!

Hayes loved spending time with Uncle Matt. He ran his chubby little fingers through Matt's beard, stared at him while Matthew made faces and talked in silly voices, and took a cat-nap on Uncle Matt's shoulder. How sweet! We need to get these two together more often!

Skype is great!! Paul and I would use it while he was away if the hotel had free internet but now I use it ALL the time to call him in Europe and it only costs about 2 cents. We love it!!!

Whit, I love all the new posts. Hayes is so stinkin' adorable. I just want to eat him up. It sounds like ya'll have been doing great. I have to say that Skype is awesome. We used it a ton when Lindsay was in Africa and Eden was just born. It was wonderful.

Aw, he loves his Uncle Matt! I've never used Skype, but I've heard a lot about it. I think it doesn't appeal to me because it means I'd have to get dressed and put on makeup just to make phone call! :o)
