Because Green Suits Any Baby: Design a Healthy Nursery with New iPhone App

The good news:  you have a baby on the way!  The not-so-good news:  you still have five trillion-and-two things left on your “Baby Prep To-Do List.”

Fret not.  We understand you can use all the help you can get to prepare for the arrival of your little bundle of joy, which is why we’re introducing you to a simple tool to help design a healthy nursery for your baby:  an app called The Peaceful Nursery (only two bucks, whereas your sanity…?  priceless!).

Created by Laura Forbes Carlin and Alison Forbes (authors of the book with the same name, as well as, the Web site, Inspired Everyday Living), The Peaceful Nursery steers expectant parents in the right direction when it comes to decorating and preparing for the early months with baby.  And, trust us, better to prepare for those months now than when you’re running on two hours of sleep and three cups of coffee.

Packed with great tips including how to set up the nursery to help baby sleep (hallelujah) and how to keep your home healthy (short answer:  cleaning products, electronics, ventilation) for baby, it provides a ton of useful information at your fingertips.  But most of all, we love the convenience of the handy checklists that help you keep track of all the nursery items you need to purchase.  Not only can you can check off items as you buy them, but you can also tap on products for green shopping guidelines.

Which means only five-trillion more things to do.  Woo-hoo!  (Hey, it’s all about baby steps.)

Lost Alum Evangeline Lilly is Pregnant — Quite Pregnant, In Fact

EvangelineLily-PregnantTurns out, Lost isn’t the only thing that fell off the entertainment radar last year — apparently former Lost star Evangeline Lilly did, too.  Because the tabloids are just catching wind of her pregnancy.  And, as you can see, she is RATHER far along.

From Us Weekly:

Lost alum Evangeline Lilly was spotted with a visible baby bump in Hawaii on Thursday; the actress’ rep had no comment on the pregnancy. It will be the first child for Lilly, 31, and boyfriend Norman Kali, who worked as a production assistant on the ABC hit.

Hopefully, their family life will be slightly less complicated than Kate Austen’s, with no fathers killed, murder trials or genetically-altered polar bears in their home.
