My 2 yr old daughter's reaction to a pre-recorded video of her daddy who was away with the military

*EDIT*
I want to take this opportunity to clear up a few things and explain our particular situation. I've received a lot of comments about my husband being overseas, but he was not deployed. He had to leave for two months to attend Basic Military Training in Texas, as he just enlisted in the USAF. Our daughter didn't understand him leaving or how long he'd be gone, or if he'd come back. She's so young and I didn't want her to think he just vanished. Prior to his departure, he recorded several videos of him talking with her, reading to her, making silly faces, ect. Once he left, every day she would ask "daddy back? see daddy?" and I was so grateful to have something to show her. In this particular video, our kitten knocked something off the shelf in the living room and it made a noise. She was trying to get daddy's attention to tell him "silly kitty."
In any event, I believe the confusion stemmed from me tagging this with "kids and deployments." I apologize for the misunderstanding, but I tagged that so that other families could hopefully find this and get the idea to create similar videos for their children. And not just military families, anyone who has to leave for any amount of time. It's so important that kids know they are loved.
Thank you everyone for your interest and kind words. There are sacrifices in being a military family, but technology today is so great in helping to ease the pain. I'll be honest, on difficult nights I was known to have him read me Farmer Mickey, as well.

PS: Yes, she is half Korean and half Scotch-Irish, but we are all American.
