Default Having twins. Need to replace failing compact digicam.

Like the title says. I'm having twins, so I need to replace my old point and shoot. I have a T1i that I'm really happy with, I just need something that will fit in my pocket when I don't feel like hauling around a camera bag. I like the S100/S110, but it's more than I want to spend. I also like the XZ-1, but it looks a lot bigger than what I want. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Some additional information:

- Video is very important
- I'd like to keep it under $300
- Good low light performance is important

I own the XZ-1- and whilst I think it's a great camera,with a fast lens across the zoom range- I wouldn't recommend it for video use. It's primarily a photo only cam- and very good at it- very good indeed..!
The S100 is a very nice little camera,with good IQ and certainly is pocketable....

Another option would be Panasonic's LX5...(though video only in mono audio...)

Bearing in mind that the newer S110 and the LX7 are now out- you might find the prices of the S100/LX5 dropping....

Thanks, it sounds like the S100 may be my best bet. Hopefully there will be some Black Friday deals to be found, since the S110 is out.
