Facebook data mining

It really does seem that any technology that has come in handy during these first few weeks of Lucy's life revolve around one thing, and without this one thing, I'm not really quite sure how we'd keep connected:

The Droid. Or, rather, any internet-enable smart phone.

Ok, it may seem like an easy all-encompassing cop-out, but quite frankly, this little device makes so much possible without disturbing the force that is Lucy's appetite. How?

When doing things like feeding the baby, or sitting in the glider trying to get her to drift off to sleep (so that you too can then drift off to sleep once she's down), the most you can finagle is a single free hand. Turns out, you can do a LOT with a single hand if you have this type of device. Surfing the internet, checking email, chatting with East Coast friends at 4am, posting thoughts on Facebook, and of course the aforementioned logging of baby-related tasks with Baby ESP... all of these things would be next-to-impossible to do with the baby on your lap AND a laptop behind her. And if possible, not nearly as convenient.

Fricken awesome.




Are you kidding me???
A “What The Hell” Pink edition!

I saw this, and immediately thought of you Molly. Would you want this one in leopard print as well, or should it be tiger stripes?

This would also be great for those adult babies. (shudders)

On the other side this easily converted into various costumes:
Bunny? Just add long ears and a bushy tail
Kitty? Just add short ears and a long tail.
Tigger? Go with tiger stripes, short ears and long tail. (I’m definitely getting that one!)

Lots of love from frost bitten Denmark.

Hey Gadgettes-

So currently I’ve taken up making bath bombs for 2 purposes. 1) trying to find new ways to raise money for charities that I’m running for in my marathon this April and 2) feeding my wife’s bath bomb habit at a much more cost effective level. I’ve gotten pretty darn good at it but of course always looking for tips and gadgets to improve the bombs.

Well I ran across this cool as heck item out of Japan (of course)- The BathBomb Maker– check this blog post with instructional video:


Even though I make a lot of bombs at once- this way just looks so much cooler to do! Ahh Japan always a head of the game!

This is the first I have ever heard of a bath bomb. Love, Molly
