Why I Love Technology

In about 4 days, Munni is going to get the book I made for her. I'm really hoping that H will be able to get some pics of her looking through it for the first time.  The rules have changed a bit, so I'm not quite sure if she'll be able to pull it off.  BUT....I do have something else that I'm even MORE excited for her to find out:

My very good friend JJ told me that I should record a video for Munni so that she can hear my voice.  So that's what I did!  I recorded a very short video on my very smart phone and sent it to H so she can show it to Munni.

I can't believe that she's going to find out about me in a few days!! About halfway through the first video, I got a little overwhelmed.  Those who know me well know that it doesn't take much for me to cry, so thinking about everything I've gone through to get to this point, well....

 I didn't want to freak her out and be scared to go home with the crying lady.  Besides, she will have plenty of time to see me in action, crying in the Starbucks line because my best friend bought me a coffee.  

Round two.  Even though I look like a thug is the frozen first frame, I think she will get the point that

Maybe she won't notice my freakishly white teeth!  What's up with that?  They do not look like that in real reminds me of Ross from Friends.

I am REALLY, REALLY excited about the beginning of next week!!!!  I hope she is excited when she sees my video and flips through the picture book!

Now if only I could get that Court Affidavit.....


  1. Yes...if only that court affidavit would come. I seriously think we need to go somewhere tropical until you get the affidavit and I get NOC. :) At least I'm going to see if there are cheap tickets to Ohio....

  2. Oh my goodness Kristen, Munni is going to absolutely love this! She will be sooooooo excited.

  3. So, so excited to hear about her reaction . . . and I have goosebumps thinking of her knowing there is a mother halfway across the world who LOVES her!

  4. My tears are flowing!!!! Soooooo happy for you and for sweet Munni!!!!! Ugh...I just want you to travel NOW!!! Many prayers being said for you and for your sweet little girl!!!

  5. Love!!!! You did great. She is going to love her mama. :D This is awesome.
    Ahhh!....I am saying a prayer right now for that court affidavit to get a move on!

  6. I love that episode of Friends! LOL. But you do not look like him they look nice lol. Munni is gonna love seeing her Mama!

  7. You did great. The video message is very nice. I am excited for you and am waiting to know how she did like the book and video. Hope and praying for a soon court date.

  8. Oh how awesome!!! I love it and you did great! She is going to be SO excited to see that and how awesome she will already know your voice :)
