    Congrats all around!
    I think you should call her Heather. Just to mess with people :-)

    Too many rice krispie treats, you know, sugar and spice….next time feed her Taco Bell Jon. Kidding…pretty crazy feelings huh. Wish you all the best. Watch Bill Cosby “Himself”. Good bit on baby girls…

  • Livingston

    Oh…one more thing. It’s officially past early September Blurbogenius. Looking forward to your triumphant return. All the best.

    Oh congrats! Girls are waaaaay more fun to shop for and dress up. Trust me I have one of each and it’s so depressing shopping for boys!!!

    Congratulations. You could’ve done the meanest thing ever and just put up the picture without telling what it is, I’m sure dozens and gazillions of people (like me) would’ve spent hours guessing what it could be.

  • http://www.mycircuslife.com Kelli

    That’s wonderful! Congratulations to you both! Girls are fun! I know, I’ve got two of them.

  • Anya

    Watch out world. Here’s to shitty diapers, 2 hours of sleep and constantly smelling like vomit and diaper creme! Cheers!

  • Rob W

    Wow… when I asked for comments, I never realized I’d have to be “no. 98″. Wow. Congratulations!

    Congratulations. :)

  • MBM

    Congratulations to you both !!!!
    Thats just wonderful news

  • http://bagclaim.blogspot.com/ Kelly

    Yep. My new girl is a blast. Yay for you and yay that things are going well.

    Great to see (or, technically, hear, or more technically, read, so really, I guess we’re back to “see” again) that your unborn spawn is doing well. Also, great to see what now has to be the absolute youngest kiddie pr0n ever posted to the ‘net.

    Just remember, the first few weeks it is cute when the baby poops.
    Then it gets a smell and you are rock, paper, scissoring for who gets to stay on the couch.

  • aibee

    Congratulations on your eenie, weenie doocette. :)

  • y.bee

    Congratulations woo hoo. I think you should give her a sistah name like Keisha or Ebony. I don’t even know why I think that, it just struck me as funny. Congrats!!!! A little doocetta!

  • http://www.joelandkate.com Kathleen

    Sure you don’t wannna amend the middle name to Bon-Macy’s? ;)

  • http://www.eyedunno.com eyemkent

    Well, being so far down in the comments really ain’t cool, but I have to add my best wishes to you all, and an unasked-for suggestion that you duck outta Utah before she turns 13. No daughter o’ Dooce should end up as a sister-wife…

  • http://pocketchange.blogspot.com/ holly

    Name suggestion:Shanaynay.
    Its a good sign that you can see a little human in that picture. I’m with Jeni on this one.

    I know you’ve heard it a hundred times, but Congratulations!! Babies are fun, even with the spit-up and dirty diapers etc.

  • http://www.flummel.com Karan

    Yay! Congratulations…and if my girl is any indication of life with a daughter…hold on to your hat!

  • anna jr.

CONGRATULATIONS Heather,Jon (& Chuck)- that will be one of the smartest, best-loved and happiest babies ever talked about on the Internet!

    Comments are consistently pointing to the clothes and the baby shopping, but all I’m thinking is, “Oh God, you’re not going to get ANY sleep. Absolutely none.”


  • http://www.helenjane.com helenjane

    My husband wishes you hadn’t just made my uterus yearn seventeen times as fervently for a wee one.

    I’m so happy for you.

  • http://hawbaker.chattablogs.com John

    How exciting! We’re about 10 weeks away from the arrival of our little girl, who also showed her butt to the ultrasound not too many weeks ago. This was after she spent 10 minutes crossing her legs to try and keep her little secret.

  • http://www.sarae.net Sara

    Yay! Congrats.
    Girl clothes are much cuter, anyways.

  • zak

    Please Heather… promise us that your daughter will never have spit up. It’s vomit or puke.

  • galt

    can i get a wooHoo!?…wooHoo!

  • galt

    oh, and of course, congratulations!

  • ~Angel

    YAAAY! Congratulations!
    I’m so happy for you, girls are so fun!

  • Tin Lai

    I want to wish you the best. I found your site a couple of months ago and have been loving it since especially when I found out you’re preggie. I too am having a girl (she’s due in November), so I can totally understand what you’re going through. Congrats again!! She’s going to be a lucky kid.

  • http://fickle-fetish.com/ lily

    oh I finally get to comment! :) i’m so glad your baby is doing good and that everyone is happy, love your site…i bet you were nervous at the ultrasound huh? i had to pee really bad right in the middle of it cause they said drink alot of water before you come in here lol

  • http://www.ivonne.com Ivonne

    Hey! Congrats. Though, I don’t see a baby in the picture. Or rather, I don’t see the part that lets us all know it’s a girl! I have ZERO maternal instincts. None whatsoever. Would someone be so kind as to hint at what part I’m supposed to be looking at so I know it’s a girl?

  • http://upthetree.com/ Ben Up the Tree

    Is your daughter even going to know what the internet is? I think we’re dating ourselves. She’s probably going to say something to the effect of “God mom, you’re so 2003!”

    Brrrr… It gives me chills just thinking about it. Congrats.

  • http://hmstanfield.com Heather S.

    You can dress her frilly things as a munchkin, then give her Legos later. Every girl needs Legos.

    I’m so pleased for you! Here’s hoping little Fawnzelle is healthy, wealthy, and wise.

  • http://foreverfeisty.my-expressions.com Feisty Girl

    Love the name..love the picture even more.

  • http://www.deadjournal.com/~wiccanwillow Sara

    I’m sure she’ll be fine. I mean, look at how I turned out, after being read all those nursery rhymes about death and sex and violence… Ok well a sociopathic lesbian with a fondness for showtunes… But hey, that’s cool, right?

  • http://www.eddoandco.com eddeaux

    Wow- Parentals you will be-it’s wonderful and deliciously frightening at the same time… i can’t wait to see this little cutie patootie!

  • http://wildrose.rpgraphics.net Lisa

    Woo hoo! The kid’s in for the ride of her life, as are the two of you (and Chuck, as well!)
