Hey ladies! With our new daughter Lucy having joined us in the world, my wife and I have taken the past week getting used to our new set of chores and challenges. One of those is, of course, the impressive amount of poops and feeds that Lucy needs. In the beginning, we had a hard time getting Lucy to eat the appropriate amount of times in a 24 hour period, and the doc recommended we log our feedings and diaper changes.

Enter Baby ESP, a LIFESAVING Android App. ($2.99 and totally worth it)
http://babyesp.com/features.html

We use it to track our feedings and diaper changes. It also allows us to take a look back in history and see things like the number of feedings per day, how many pees, how many poops. You can also create your own tasks and track those (for example, mom's medicine.)

It has a summary window that shows all of the timers for each task in one view, allowing you to glance and say "ahhh, she's due for a feed in an hour, and we should probably check her diaper then too."

So much easier than keeping track of a pad and pencil to write it all down. And that type of simplicity is exactly what you need when you've woken up every 1.5 hrs throughout the night. Having it this easy means it still gets done, even in that haze.

Back to the baby. Miss yall, and "Love the show!"

Imagine the dilemma,. You want a Windows home server to store and back up all your important files, and you want a humidor for your fine cigars. What will you do? What WILL you do?

Well choose no more people, as you now get both a Windows Home Server AND a cigar humidor in one. It’s the Servidor.

I hate to dis Little Einsteins, but it cannot hold a candle to Yo
Gabba Gabba. All the writters are obviously dropping massive doses of
acid. My preschooler LOVES it! Lots of celebs show up too: Jack Black,
The Ting Tings, The Roots, Paul Scheer, and Mark Mothersbaugh. Also
one of the main characters is a French Tickler.

Hey Gadgettes Crew…

A friendly recommendation from me to you via BoingBoing:

Because clearly you guys NEED help with your shyness and frankly there is nothing better than a DVD of greasy men to do the job and do it right!!!

Keep on doing what you do, love the show etc…
