Anybody home?

We're still here but have been busy with out-of-town visitors and um, a baby. (Gee, it felt like a longer list of things that was keeping us busy....) There's a post that's ready and just waiting for some photo permissions from aforementioned guests. In the meantime, I leave you with these tidbits:

1) You know you're really tired when you discover that you have put on your bra inside out. (No wonder it was so hard to fasten!)

2) I am SUCH a total geek. A safety geek and a technogeek. Oh, and a mom geek. As a safety geek, I refuse to put any of those "see your baby from the front seat" mirrors in the back of the car because in an accident they could become a projectile and a huge hazard. As a technogeek and a mom geek, I now carry the digital camera all the time. And we have enrolled with TrixieTracker to indulge the techno/mom geekiness. When you put that all together, you get this:

On the Road Again

Yup. I really hate not being able to see her, plus for the TrixieTracking I needed to know if she was awake or asleep, so....

(And to fend off any OTHER safety geeks, I took the picture at a red light. A very LONG red light.)


  • we SO did hte Trixie Tracker for a few months - it's LOADS of fun - but now I need to be home to click, and I just can't see Narda entering in all of that stuff...

    Nat's SO cute these days, you guys!

  • Wow, she is SOOOOO big!

  • She's really cute! And I like that, according to the Trixie Tracker, she averages 7.3 poops per day. Hope you are all well and enjoying your time together!
    PS- In your "About" paragraph on the right, you spelled the word chapter as "chaper". Just thought a geek such as yourself would wanna correct that.

  • As a non-techno-geek, I don't know what a Trixie Tracker is, but that is such an adorable picture of Natalie! So sweet.

  • Shel, I don't know how long we'll use TT - it's a pain when we're not home (and there's a lot of time we're not home - we are very busy urban chicks!) but I *love* seeing the data. Geek, geek, geek.

    JB, thank you! How embarrassing! All fixed now. (Also, it's 7.3 diapers, not poops!!)

    Mo, if you follow the link, it will show you the Trixie Tracker - a neat website to keep track of all kinds of data about your kid. It's not really necessary but it's fun if you are a datahead. And it can be useful - it helped us solve a cloth diaper problem (we needed to change her more often to prevent leaks, and seeing the patterns graphed out helped us figure that out).

  • I tried TT for roughly 36 hours. It was the data entry that killed me. I love the idea and if it was easy, I would have kept it up.

  • awwwww!!

  • Ha! I *THOUGHT* that was a lot of poop! Glad for all your sakes that it's diapers.

    By Blogger lagiulia, at 7:17 PM  

  • Yay! So glad you've entered the dark side with us! I've already started letting stuff go with our TT. Like diapersw - I know she's filling diapers. I've decided I don't need to log it.

    I SO wish the pumping stuff and the bottles stuff went together better. You have to remember what is in storage and type it into a bottle. I want a one-click solution.
