Looking for a durable little video camera

I'm looking to get a video camera, specifically a quick, durable thing for using with and around a new baby. Super bonus points for being water proof. Details and thoughts inside.

Baby light thief will be arriving in a month, and I'm getting excited about capturing all his ridiculous and adorable hijinks. I have a dSLR (Nikon D3100), and a pocket camera (Canon PowerShot SD850 IS), and I might be getting a film SLR (Nikon N75, buying used, specifically for the two lenses the person won't sell w/o the body).
I saw this question
and browsed the suggestions from there, when I saw a number of waterproof/shockproof camcorders (GE DV1-GG
and Toshiba Camileo BW10
specifically) and got all googly eyed. So now I'd like input from MeFites who have shopped for and used such cameras, and the prior threads seem to be a few years old, and not focused on the durable side of things.
