“Chris returned back from deployment one-week shy of Fitz’s 1st birthday! Fitz & I picked him up at the airport. Coincidentally I had been sick, so I fibbed to Molly that I would be at the doctor’s office, so she was to go to our neighbor’s house when she got home from school. So on her part of the video she is grumpy because she wanted to stay at the neighbors and I picked her up so we could “Skype” with Chris who was upstairs in her bedroom. Needless to say she was super happy her daddy was home!” -Alex
