the IT city, the I.T. Baby


Snow, new beds, 4am wakeups, life goes on

Little dome Foscam
Little camera I’m playing with. Forgot I have an all brick exterior. going to be a fun time mounting it.

While the new Maggie bed has generally been a great thing, it’s also given her more freedom to wake up absurdly early and turn on the lights and start a party.

I don’t think this will be a problem long term though. I’m pretty sure it’s due to the fact that there’s enough snow out there that it looks like daylight at about 4am.

This morning she woke up around 4am – I heard her on the monitor, turned on the lights at 4:40 and get a book and started playing with her dolls. About 5am baby woke up and I went to get a bottle and that alerted Maggie I was up.

She asked for food, cartoons, water, land in Montana. I asked her what she really wanted and she said she wanted to lay around and watch cartoons for a little bit so I obliged and she passed out within a few minutes in it looked like. She was awake but not really raring to go.

I’ve been working on getting another camera installed at the house. Two actually. Since installing a security camera out front I’ve learned some of the things I thought were people in my yard were just trash blowing in, and some were people, usually people from the towers walking their dogs and being dipshits.

Oh yeah, and I’ve caught the mailman chucking 50 pound packages with a 10 foot toss, that was a fun video to send to Amazon as to why I had so many broken items listed… here you go, it’s USPS.

Aerin’s got a ton of size 2 diapers I think we’re going to try and trade with someone. I don’t know how we ended up with so many, but they’re incapable of handling a baby who is currently wearing 9-12 month clothing. Anyone in Nashville want to trade some 3s for some 2s drop me a line.
