    i have absolutely no idea where the baby is in that picture, i mean, except for the cootie-coo, but where’s the face and stuff? does it have a face? do babies have faces? i have no idea what’s going on… but CONGRATS! that’s awesome!

  • http://owensoft.net owen

    maybe it just me but I didn’t understand the pic at first, eventually had to ask girl what it was in the picture exactly(picture of lower body). My ultrasound pic reading skills are surely lacking.

    congrats… and I must admit to also being completely confused by that ultrasound pic…

    Wait! I thought you were naming her Norah!
    And a hearty congradulations to you both.

    congratulations! breeders in utah. what are the odds? Baby girls are great – i have three nieces and love them more than life. i’m going to have to just run with you on this cause i see as much in an ultrasound as i do in a rothko.

    and based on my experience with babies (i forget just how many times i’m an uncle now between family and friends) i’m willing to bet that in a few months this little girl will be pooping enough for all of you.

    Do you think she will be born with beautiful Septic Tank Poopy Red hair???

    Little mini Brintey outfits, in pink, aren’t you lucky???

    Don’t ever forget:

    When you have a boy, you’ve got one penis to worry about.

    When you’ve got a girl, you’ve got ALL the penises (penii?) to worry about.

    This is the day I’ve been waiting for. Comments are back up!

    LMAO, I was thinking that your daughter is going to be forever tramatized by you posting her privates on the internet before I even read the post.


    Girls are easier to raise until they hit 12.

  • Brandi

    Congrats! Have you thought of any girl names? Is Chuck excited to have a baby sister??

    Jon, I hope you’re planning to celebrate your XX with some XX (ahem, the beer, not the movies). And remember, you’re drinking for three…

    On behalf of Heavenly Father, I’d like to thank you for doing your part to multiply and replenish the earth.

  • jcrew

    Congratulations! You guys are going to be great parents. Our first was a girl too, I can’t believe how our lives have changed in two short years. Get ready, and best wishes!

    I don’t even see a cootie coo. I will never be able to read an ultrasound picture!!!

    Congrats and blessings for your baby girl!

    Congratulations, Heather & Jon! Can’t wait to see more pictures of your little sweet darling. :)

    With parents like hers, this girl is already destined for geeky greatness.

    Congratulations, dooce and blurb!

    Dear God…the clothes, the CLOTHES!


  • http://www.gimmenoise.com Renee

    Don’t forget to click on the picture. There’s a circle around the “girl parts”! I couldn’t figure out the damn thing at all without the circle!

  • Ali

    Wow, I’m glad someone understands those ultrasound pictures!

    Congratulations on your baby girl!
    Here’s to hoping that her therapist understands.

  • Marc

    Congrats – and some advice…did you get video? If you a bring a tape to the session they’ll tape the sonogram output for you if you ask – otherwise you’re stuck (as we were) with a quickly yellowing piece of thermal paper…at least you scanned it – it makes a nice first page of the baby pix book (or photoblog if you like).

  • http://www.pumpkinjuice.com Jenny

    YAHOO! Heather, Jon, my deepest congrats. She’s gonna drive you so crazy you’ll have no idea how to love anything more.

  • candace

    you know, i keep looking at that photo…trying to figure out if what i’m supposed to see is very little of greatly magnified. feeling dizzy now…
    in any case, happy baby to you both!

  • candace

    ok, so i’m retarded. i just *accidentally* clicked on the pic and your sonogram for dummies enlargement showed up. thank you :)

  • Heather

    You have not experienced love until you look your child in the eye for the first time. It will be the most incredible moment in your life. Treasure it.
    PS make sure you hit the Disney store right after Halloween and stock up on the princess costumes

    Congratulations, Armstrongs! Such wonderful news.
    Word to DJ Blurb: when she’s of dating age, display the gelding shears prominently in the entry hall where the boys can see ‘em. I’m sure you can buy ‘em at Safeway in Utah.

  • A new Auntie

    My sister is just behind you and I keep looking here as a month-ahead guide. She’s thousands of miles away (& due in Feb)so I don’t know how she’s growin’. However, I did find out that I will have a perfect beautiful niece. Do you mind if we steal Fawnelle??? Maybe just Dorothy will suffice.

    Congratulations Heather!

    is this thing on?

    “The girl should be in pictures”…isn’t that (*roughly*) a quote from somewhere? Just something I thought about when I saw this particular addition of the soon-to-be Miss Armstrong. (Fawnzelle, Shaneequa, or whatever the name turns out to be!) I almost feel sorry for you, having to decide on a name with all the possibilities. For some reason I imagine the one you end up with in the end won’t be quite as shocking….

  • http://supasoulsista.com supasoulsista

    i guess the easiest and most natural thing to say is congrats – may she be a holy terror for you to enjoy and regale us with stories in your blog about :)

  • http://melodrama.rediffblogs.com Melodrama

    Congratulations. Girls are so much better than little boys and when they get older, so much better than big boys too!

  • Grace

    When she’s famous, this will be the picture on all the tabloids.

    awesome! :O

    Congrats! I was worried about “Fawnzelle” but the “Le Bon” part just pulls it all together.

    Super-congrats to the three of you.

    I mean four. (Sorry Chuck.)

    What would really stuff her up is if you post pictures of the birth online. No amount of therapy could repair the damage that would cause.

    Kitta does have a point there. Congratulations, Dooce and Dad.
