I got a Logitech QuickCam IM free with my computer recently.  It's not
up to much but it works fine for my needs (which are almost exactly the
same as Ari's, except we don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet).  It
works well out of the box and simply plugged in to the usb port with Ubuntu, 
which is more than can be said for Windows which needed the driver
installing from the cd when I plugged it into my wife's laptop.

In fact it worked so well I haven't looked any further into webcams and
different models.  I suggest you give some a try with linux.
