I received these pictures yesterday and the kids already look different to me. Apparently, they are talking up a storm, drinking out of drink boxes, and walking is second nature now. Two and a half weeks is just too long, and I am counting the days until I see my wife and kids again. I think they miss me too. Greta tells me that every time the phone rings Gabbie says "Dah-tee, Dah-tee". Also, she said that Niklas found a picture with me in it and reacted the same way. It's good to know they haven't forgotten me.
