New review post – our video monitor

When Peanut was still in my belly,  we thought that we didn’t need a lot of extra gadgets.

I’m going to go ahead and say we were wrong.

Especially about this little gadget:

We received an old, but totally awesome baby monitor (the one that just has audio) from our neighbors and we were positive that it would satisfy our needs.

When Peanut was about 4 weeks old, I started walking on the treadmill in the basement during Peanut’s naps.  While walking, I turned on the audio monitor and set it up on the treadmill.  And every time that Peanut made any kind of sound, I bolted up the stairs and into her room (now that I think about it, this was probably a better workout anyways).  So I talked to Jon and we decided that it might be worth it to invest in a video monitor.

I wanted all sorts of stuff from it – like the ability to see Peanut in the pitch black room, being able to move the monitor around the room without walking into her room, zooming in and zooming out.  I wanted to be able to adjust the volume and to hook up the monitor on the wall.  Basically, I wanted my cake and to eat it too.

Guess what?  This guy does it all!

Which means I get to spy…

and spy,

This doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I spy

and watch my baby girl sleep.
