I use the voice record feature on my iRiver, and Audacity. Remarkably
directional mic on the iRiver. If I set it on the table right in front
of me, but aimed at the Little One, she comes through loud and clear and
I'm a muffled undertone (I have a pretty strong, clear speaking voice,
so muffled undertone ain't my usual sound)

A portable voice recorder also frees you from the laptop, which may not
be necessary, but *can* be nice. Oh, and the iRiver comes in handy even
when I'm not recording voice ;) [I hate unitaskers]
