    I’m so happy for you and I’ll echo the others who said Woohoo! for smart, nice people having babies. I’m really looking forward to hearing about the whole bun-in-the-oven and baby thing through *your* eyes. I think anyone who assumes talk of babies from dooce will be like the typical parental gushing found elsewhere is way off base. Babytalk away, if you want. Very best wishes to all four of you!

    Jesus H. Chr…errr…

    Congratulations!!!!! :o )

    There’s a navajo custom that whoever makes the baby laugh has to throw a party. A BIG party. Keep that in mind. :o p

  • TS

    *ehem* sorry…

    addendum: whoever makes the baby laugh for the FIRST TIME has to throw the party.

    Speaking as the mom of a 2 year old, this book (Baby Bargains) will save your life:


    Have fun!!!

  • erica

    i don’t think i’ve ever been so happy at a stranger’s pregnancy! but congrats, and we all look forward to some great stories!

    note to getbacktoworkjim: i would think the teletubbies would be the _best_ thing about having babies. not that i would know.

    Congratulations! From someone who was born and raised in Utah – take it from me – DO NOT live in an area that will subject your teenage child to the ridicule and mockery of going to a high school with the mascot moniker of BEETDIGGER. I will never hear the end of that one. It’s painful, yo.

    Congratulations! With one more mouth to feed, you better get crackin’ on updating your *year supply*!

    I love *year supply* jokes. They’re so easy.

  • http://owensoft.net owen

    I’m so perplexed I don’t know what to say. Horny yet horrified at the same time. yay!

  • http://www.posterboy.org posterboy

    You should name it “Dooce”.

  • christine

    wow. wow! that is so amazingly wonderful.

  • LB

    Woooooohoooooo!! (Texas frat boy style congrats)

  • http://www.thehighsign.net unlovedbypears

    what does *year supply* mean?

  • http://www.daymented.com dayment

    Well, call an exorcist.
    Dooce is pregnant.

  • Clubfoot

    Pregnant? How in God’s name did that happen? I didn’t think Mormans did that.

    I hope your baby doesn’t poop on that bed.

  • moose


    …”my boys”… plural???

  • SarahL

    I wish I could put a nice guassian blur like that on my whole apartment, it would look so much better. And of course, congratulations #7,358! It wasn’t until my sister had a baby a couple of months ago that I understood what the hullabaloo was all about. I can’t wait to hear all the strange, wonderful things that Abcde Blurbodooce Armstrong brings to your life.

  • http://aspire.cosmic-ray.org dscokween

    first time poster, and recent first time mom here. Congrats!

    Love the new room…make sure to get the baby room done sooner than 7 months though….more like month 5 or 6 of your pregnancy.

    I didn’t get the baby room finished and it’s still in a state half-assedness. (5 months postpartum)

  • http://www.outofcharacter.blogspot.com estella

    A *year supply* is a Mormon thing… good Mormon families (read good Mormon wives)are supposed to keep a year’s supply of food around so that all of the smug Mormons will have something to eat during Armageddon while the rest of us heathens starve. They’re totally not going to share, either. Dooce is a detoxed Mormon… I’m sure you got the joke, right Dooce? There’s nothing more satisfying for a non-Mormon than giving a Mormon bride a big bag of cornmeal as a wedding present.

  • http://www.thehighsign.net unlovedbypears

    heh heh … thanks for the clarification, estelle. now i know where to go a-knockin’ for staples (cake batter?) when Gabriel’s trumpet blows.

    An April baby — I’m sooo happy for you two!
    Good luck on that name thing. I’m sure you’ll find something wonderful on that UBN site. Latrina? I like Hereditary Armstrong. My 15 y.o. dd spent all school year working on an autobiography, which she titled “They Should Have Named Me Spike”. Which just proves that you can’t win–please yourselves.

  • http://www.thehighsign.net enjoyingmyselfhugely

    is Spike Lee going to sue her?

  • http://shyeyes.org shy

    oh.my.god! congratulations! :)

  • http://shyeyes.org shy

    oh yeah… and wonderful interior decorating. at only $300, no more! not bad, not bad..

  • http://line-noise.com jackie

    holy crap! that’s the nicest room! completely martha (peace be with)… scandalous and all! thanks for sharing! i too have a arts and crafts bungalow (circa 1924) which is in mad need of some handiwork and decorating. now like youth hostile, future looked bleak… now i’m at least definite on sheer window treatments long and wispy! yeS!

  • http://line-noise.com/journal jackie

    omg!!! and i was so excited about the room i didn’t get to the last picture!!!! CONGRATSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

  • http://bighead.waferbaby.com petya

    ouu-la-la! congratulations! please, promise you won’t make one of those baby-blogs…the ones that sound like the baby itself is writing.

  • http://www.lifetimetv.com/ Shawnrok

    Congrats, but I must say – I’ve found I’m pretty much done with this site. Nothing personal, but we’re a long way from the shit talkin, booze drinking, running into stars, getting fired from her job, Dooce. Now it’s just puppies, babies, and Martha Stewart. Hello LifetimeTV.

    Don’t say, “well don’t read it then!” Because I won’t – it’s just that it was at one time exciting, hip and cutting edge.

    I wish you the best Dooce and Blurb, but I think it’s time I sailed into the sunset. Yeah I know, you’re saying “good riddence.”

  • sam

    shawnrok, i believe you are a cunt.

  • http://www.outofcharacter.blogspot.com estella

    Wow. Someone thinks that putting “Congrats” in front of a slam adds tact. Someone is wrong.

  • http://santagati.com/omerta anthony.

    holy preggers, batman! mucho congrats.

    Hooray! What a great way to announce a pregnancy. You’re so damn funny!

  • http://iamclementine.com clementine

    congratulations!! i don’t think i’d ever have the guts to have a child… or redecorate a room like that! at least we know that with taste that good, your baby’s gonna have a cool name :)
