I've been meaning to write a post about the BabyConnect app and now I finally have the time! I have to say that I love this app. Some people may think I'm neurotic, but I'm honestly not. It is just a big help to me since my memory fails me a lot these days and I didn't know much about babies prior to Liam being born.

This app, which I use on my iPad and iPhone, keeps track of everything! How often Liam eats and for how long. How many wet/poopy diapers. How much he's sleeping. Weight gain. How much I pump. What milestones he's reaching. Ev-er-y-thing. Sometimes when Liam is being crabby and I have no idea why, I'll look at the app and realize he's been awake for an hour and a half and is probably tired...or it's been two hours since he ate so he's probably hungry. I try to read his cues the best I can but when I'm lost or confused the app is a big help to me. It also helps me notice patterns. That's how I learned that when he's been up for more than an hour he gets cranky. That's how I learned that he sleeps an average of 8-9 hours a night (though certainly not in one block unfortunately!). That's how I learned that he can only go four hours from his last feeding of the night to his first feeding the next day (major bummer!). And that he's a once-a-week pooper.

I would definitely be lost without this app and will forever sing its praises! This app is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android...and is also available on the web. I say if you're a new mommy you should download it ASAP.

And here are some cute photos of Liam, because it's not a complete blogpost without some Liam cute-ness.

Gap jeans and H&M cardigan...this kid is stylin'!

Playing with his o-ball.

Rolling from back to side!

I had an itzbeen with Lane that I LOVED. I had to buy a new one for this baby since Lane broke the first one, but...loved it. Doesn't sound as in-depth as BabyConnect, but it did help with a lot of the same kind of things.

Liam's such a cutie...and has the same play-mat as Lane did! Unfortunately she broke that, too, and we need a new one. Sigh. Keep an eye on your kid after they've 'technically' outgrown things! =)
