Hot off the wire

“There is Trixie MacNeill, age 15 months. Trixie, who lives in Chapel Hill, N.C., dressed as the “Atomic Toddler” for Halloween, was a bit of a wreck on a recent road trip and seems interested in potty-training.”

The news service gods look favorably upon us today. The Trixie Update is mentioned in a Scripps Howard News Service baby blogging story which feeds various newspapers across the country. I’m pretty excited and would like to thank Jessica Wehrman for the interview. I know that the story appears in the Raleigh, NC News & Observer and the Fresno, CA Fresno Bee. If you saw the story somewhere else, I’d love to hear where. thanks-

Here’s a little more:

“Early in Trixie’s life, Ben, a former computer programmer and Web designer, developed a program that would allow him to plug information about Trixie’s sleeping and eating habits into the site so his wife Jennifer could see what Trixie was up to…

… But the Web site isn’t all hard data: MacNeill posts adorable pictures of his daughter, as well as hilarious accounts of Trixie’s enormous appetite for Cheerios.”

    Great articles! No TTU news out here in So. Cal that I’m aware of, but I keep a look out for you…

    Just wanted to comment on the “adorable picture” of Trixie…one of my favorites! I’m sure YOU weren’t laughing at the time, but when I see it I have to laugh…I just love the reality of it (wait till I have my own!) since most of the TPOD’s are the truly adorable pictures.

    I’m sure I speak for many out there reading, Thanks for the continued dedication to TTU!

    There actually aren’t any photos included in the wire story. I added that photo link just for TTU readers.
