  • how about showing the baby pictures and home video of daddy! When my daughter got upset cuz her dad wasnt home and he was working he used to send us video clips of him singing her favorite songs like itsy bitsy spider, twinkle little star and ABCs

  • Webcam if you can. Aside from that, you have to give him 2 parents worth of hugs & snuggles.

  • lol yeah we webcam every chance we get. The baby hears him and listens but doesn't quite connect the "daddy is on the screen" concept he just looks around the room trying to locate him lol
