First Teleconference

Up until today, Elijah’s interaction with computers has been pretty basic. Smashing the keyboard when his father is trying to blog. What can you expect? He’s ten months old. If he were to suddenly order something off, I’d be worried.

But today, he leapt into the 21st century by teleconferencing with my mom.

To understand what a feat this is, let me clue you in to my mom. If she had her way, we’d all still be watching black and white TV’s, listening to 8-tracks and driving 1973 station wagons. Come to think of it, that does sound pretty awesome.

But her husband Mike bought the family a modern, new fangled computer that happens to have a camera and teleconferencing capabilities. The Hamanns also blog on a state of the art computer. That’s covered with baby goo.

So after much phoning back and forth and a few swears, she was able to see Eli and talk with him and watch him do his newest trick: waving bye bye. It’ll never take the place of in person bye bye, but it will hold her off until they salt the roads.

If you are interested in a much more hilarious post than this, check out Fox Hamann’s latest. He dances.

p.s. Eli hasn't been kidnapped by a lumberjack. I haven't had a chance to shave. Plus, beards are awesome.
