A Day in the Life

More posts might be coming soon. There’s a “birth story” that’s more or less written, a giant rant about breastfeeding that may or many not get posted, and lots of other things I could talk about like Elliott’s first few (awesome) days, Charlotte’s typical but frustrating reactions towards both Elliott and me, pictures galore, etc etc.

For now, here’s some raw output from the Baby Activity Monitor app that I’ve been using on my iPhone to help track Elliott’s day. The app isn’t perfect, but it’s hella sexy and beats pen and paper at 3 in the morning any day of the week. Who doesn’t love digitzed data?! I’m not taking any more time to argue with wordpress and my theme about how this table can/should be displayed, so if it looks a little wonky, that’s why. Don’t blame the app :)

Here’s what 6 days old looked like:
(ignore the “0.00 oz” – that’s for bottle feeding)
