I started using Skype as soon as my daughter was born. Although thankfully we have an amazing group of close friends here, we have no immediate family in our town, so Skype is a great way to let the Grandparents see Penelope.
Sometimes it’s hard to get Penelope to stay in the screen, but our best experiences with Skype have been not trying to have a conversation but just setting the computer up so that Penelope can just play and be herself and let the Grandparents see her in action.
This past Christmas, Skype came in very handy as both sets of Grandparents got to watch Penelope open her presents. And just this week we got to show her excitement of making homemade ice cream for the first time.
And pretty much all my husband’s extended family lives in Argentina. So if it weren’t for Skype we would never get to see them!
If you haven’t checked out Skype or Skype’s new Group Video Chat, I highly recommend it!
