Jude was down for a nap when Joshua Skyped in... so after talking to Joshua for a bit, I told him to hang on for a second and went and grabbed Jude out of bed. He had just fallen into that crazy deep delirious stage of sleep and so he literally never woke up as I picked him up. I walked into the computer room, carrying Jude like a limp noodle with his head unconscious on my shoulder. Joshua's face was on the computer screen- but Jude's head was turned the other way, so he didn't notice. I sat down in the chair and Joshua whispered, "Hey buddy!"... Jude's head immediately shot straight up and his eyes were wide as saucers looking around. I'll tell you what, my boy knows his daddy's voice from anywhere! I told Jude to look at the screen and the instant he saw Joshua he yelled, "Daddy!!!" and reached out for his face! Melts my heart! He just kept interrupting in a soft voice, "Daddy!" the entire time in between Joshua and I's conversation, as though he was just soaking in the fact that he could see and hear his daddy. Then at some point Jude remembered that Joshua still had his Finn McMissile (that I mentioned in a previous post). He asked daddy if he was taking pictures of Finn in Africa on adventures- to which daddy assured him he was. Jude told him all about the new "upgraded" Finn McMissile he got to replace the one that was left in daddy's pocket the other day. Joshua doubled checked with Jude to make sure it was still okay with him to give the Finn he had to a little boy who doesn't have any cars tomorrow at Kampiringisa. "Sure thing daddy! That'll be a good choice!"
