    Ah, congratulations to you and Jon! The great thing about those adorable little girl clothes, is that you can blame it on her — “She just won’t wear anything but pink!”
    OO, “doocette” — that’s a lovely name, too…

    I can’t even begin to explain the story of how I stumbled upon this website a few months back. I’ve spent a great deal of time checking out this site when I should have been studying o-chem and bacterial diversity. Thank you so much for the moments of procrastination that reading your posts have given me. It’s pretty sweet to make a first post on such a special occasion. Here’s a big CONGRATS from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. Girls so freakin’ rule!

    Congrats! I’m writing her in as my write-in choice for California governor on October 7! Who cares if she doesn’t make the 18-year old three-drink minimum. It’s a free country! Vote early and often! FAWNZELLE for le governor!

    Mr. and Mrs. Blurb … Regarding approaches to dissuading potential suitors during the dreaded adolescence period, you might be inspired by the eminent philosopher Charles Barkley, who said, regarding young men who come a-courtin, “I’ll kill the first one and the word will get out.” It’s never too early to start planning.

    Holy freaking crap!

    A girl.

    It’s a good day for all us girl types, I’d say.

    Oh whew. A boy was going to get some roughin’ up for wearing that cute little pink dress you were eyeing.

    Blurb: time to start getting protective and preparing ways to skin teenage boys, come 2020.

    I like how she’s showing her bum to the camera. This kid has attitude already… :)

    Congrats, Heather & Jon.

  • UnderwearNInja

    2020? Boys won’t wait around that long. I figure he’ll be polishing guns in the front room wearing nothing but boxers while 16 year old boys come over to court his 14 year old daughter.

    20 years from now in some chilly doctor’s office littered with scary abstract art and old issues of Newsweek, my daughter is going to ask her therapist how she could have possibly had a normal life when it all began…

    …in UTAH.

    Love to your both and congrats. I’m feeling the happiness FOR YOU.

  • peidirtie

    all that talk about mad hair and crazy body types will manifest itself much more dramatically in this feminine form. Ke-Ming’s double cow-lick congratulates the little girl, and her future hair.

    IT’S AN ALL CAPS APPROPRIATE COMMENT: CONGRATULATIONS! –How do you feel about arranged marriages? Hmmm… Jon and Heather Armstrong are pleased to announce the marriage of their daughter, Fawnzelle Le Bon Marche Ladonvernelle Armstrong to Eli Potato Adams on Saturday March 23, 2028 at the Zen Institute…

    Congratulations! I look forward to reading the witty posts made possible by this revelation of gender. I know you won’t let us down.

    good gravy. i just interrupted a grim slogging workday with the happy thought, hey, didn’t dooce have her ultrasound today? and lo and behold, not only did you have it, not only did you post the good news immediately, not only are you having A GIRL (the best gender of child. sorry, but it just is), but you have re-enabled comments so that your proud readers may send in their good wishes! thanks for reinventing the blog genre and for inviting us into your hilarious, ordinary, wonderful life. i hope being as good a mother as you’re sure to be doesn’t keep you from being as good a writer as you already are.

    So, do you have her life already mapped out?

    Let’s hear how you plan to live vicariously through your dish washing, lawn mowing, trash taking outing automaton.

  • leandra

    Congrats! Honestly, I have no idea how people can see anything on those ultrasound photos. :)

    Congrats! Bring on the frilly pink stuff! You know, almost 2 years ago, I was about as anti-frilly pink as you could get, but since having my little girl, it’s amazing how much frilly pink stuff you find in drawers and closets. :)
