Skype

I Skyped for the first time today.

I asked my sister, Alison, if she would get skype so that I could talk to her of course, but also so I could see my nieces and they could see me. I haven't seen them since November and with Stella turning one and Zora turning five, both in April - I feel like I'm really missing out on getting to know them.

So this morning, she downloaded Skype.

and this is what I saw...






Actually, Zora talked to me first and it took her a little while to get the hang of talking to me in the big screen - instead of looking at herself in the corner screen. But when she did figure it out she was a lot of fun. She showed me her new haircut and told me that her "...haircutter, Kim, is now working at another place. It's so big it's like an airplane!" Kids are so funny.

Stella was down for her nap when we first started the conversation, but soon had had enough of that and needed to get into the picture. Alison showed me Stella's new teeth, too. She's got two on the bottom that are in, but two little stubs can be seen on the top now. Stella mostly just looked at the screen, while Alison and I talked.

What a treat this morning. I thought I was going to sleep in this morning and it didn't work out - I'm so glad that happened because it was a true joy to see my girls.

Have a fabulous day!

I don't really know what Skype is, but there is a little camera built into my lappy and another one built into my daughter's lappy, and we have occasionally IMed with those turned on so I could see the grans. It's fun, but I thought our perspective was a bit wopperjawed.

How Cool !!!!

I know about Skype, but haven't used it. I will someday. The part I don't know about is the photo part, I don't have a camera built into my laptop nor do I have a webcam. So I guess I need to find out what I need in the photo part.

My brothers, sisters and I just use our cell phones and the minutes and long distance are included in our plans.

But, Skype is certainly going in a good direction. I love this technology.
