Give me back the lens cap, Scooter

    Hey! I watch movies with the subtitles so I don’t miss anything AND I’M 27!

    Seriously, try it, You have no idea how many lines you’re missing–especially during an argument or a scene when they’re in traffic…you hear a ton more! And it’s required for any English or Scottish accents!

    Hey, of France lady….Shhh. You made your point. Quiet now. Enough. Step away from your keyboard. LET IT GO!

    I watch DVDs with the subtitles too! I’m 26. I live with movie talkers so sometimes the only way I know what’s going on is by reading the lines.

    Leta is still cute as ever!

    Leta is so beautiful and cute and Chuck! Chuck! awww If he ever COULD have puppies, I’d take one in an instant. No wonder you weren’t going to let anyone else take him. awwwww.

    All movie talkers should burn in hell with Republicans and people from France! Anyway, watching the subtitles you can really catch a lot of what you once missed when simply LISTENING to the movie, however I sometimes notice that I’m not even watching the actual picture anymore, just focusing on the dialog and thinking, “Holy shit, he had a daughter? Holy shit, she DIED? Holy shit, someone left him negative feedback on ebay?!”

    Today, just for fun (why do I torture myself so??) hubby and I went to the pet store on the way home from the weekly grocery shop (cause that is what you do for fun when you have three kids under 12). There in one of the glass walled pens were two baby chihahauhs. The tan one of the two did little tricks for us.. sat on his bum and waved at me with his paw. Really. Husband told me to stop embarassing him. Puppy waved more.. Puppy then decided if he was going to completely win us over we had to know he was a package deal with his bro and started frolicking with him. I could have puked. Really.

    Husband unamused by $1,200 price tag for the lot and encouraged me to move on (nevermind the fact I already have a shih tzu mutt who I adore and who adores me…) Which sent me to the Chihahua rescue site at … http://www.chirescue.org/ Hoping someone out there is close/eager enough to enquire about one of their darlings. Me? Still working on hubby…

    I admit that I sometimes think I’m getting old WAY too fast, but I often turn on the subtitles so that I don’t miss anything. I used to do it even more, but I still do it. And sometimes, if I don’t hear something very clearly, I rewind and turn on subtitles and replay. Certain shows need subtitles more than others. Joan of Arcadia can be hard to hear, for instance.

    Oh, and I’m 26. So, you should tell your dad he’s in good company. At least I like to think I’m good company!

    First I had a TV with a broken sound setting so I could never turn it up above a whisper. Now I always watch TV with the captions on and the sound off or our baby wakes up. I kinda forget that TV has sound and it always seems to be turned up WAY TOO LOUD at anyone else’s house.

    Thats EXACTLY what I need! A handy baby-shaped camera accessory that removes the lens cap for me.

    You are SO brave to put Leta in a white outfit! I have always wanted to dare to do that but never had the guts. Within 15 seconds my daughter would have that coat looking like it was a Dalmation fur with all the dirt blobs she’d have smeared on it.

  • Lori

    Add another 27 year old watchin’ the subtitles… though I have hearing aids for both ears that I don’t wear so I SUPPOSE that might have something to do with it…

  • http://www.itsnotcrap.blogspot.com Lisa

    I’ve never left a comment before, but HAD to because I’m FIRST!! Cool!

  • Kathleen

    What a sweetheart.

  • Torie Hoffman

    She is so precious. Maybe she is showing early signs of an interest in photography.

  • http://heather-anne.com Heatheranne

    I LOVE her eyes. They’re gorgeous.

  • Lisa

    Cute, you need to head on over Chookooloonks, baby Alex has a thing for lens caps too.

  • http://honestmom.blogspot.com/ Lorie

    So cute!! I can’t believe you guys are wearing coats. It’s going to be 82 in Texas today…ugh.

  • http://www.accidentaljulie.com/idnex2.php Julie

    She looks adorable… the white-on-white ensemble, for some reason, makes me think she’s gearing up for her role as the Sugar Plum Fairy in her play group’s production of “The Nutcracker.”

  • H in Chicago

    OMG! Could Chuck have been any cuter!?

  • Suzy

    Too cute! Heh, it must have been cold out, her lil nose is pink!

  • perception

    I love that furry hooded jacket! She looks utterly adorable. =)

  • http://smithsinflorida.blogspot.com Karry

    Leta makes that look yummy. By the way, I think you may regret white. It looks cute and all right now, but just wait. I can’t even let my kids wear pink or light blue. Just sucks in too much dirt.

  • http://www.lemonlight.org Angie

    Mmmmmm, lens cap, yummy!

  • http://buttershug.com Nikki

    Well, it *does* look like a giant oreo cookie.

  • LadyBug

    Love the puppy, Love the baby, Love the beautiful white coat, Love, Love, Love it!

    Now, please, the story of how that ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE puppy came to be known as “Former Congressman?” He doesn’t LOOK like a politician….those eyes say, “You’ll love me even when I shit on you.” Wait, maybe he IS a politician….hmmm…..

  • kimberley

    I want to hear the story of your wedding dress. Apparently that was quite interesting.

  • http://redhappens.com red

    she really gets cuter everyday, doesn’t she? GOODNESS!

  • http://the5thmuse.diary-x.com psyche

    Maybe she could duck it in milk too. DJ froggy looks so adorable in that white coat :)

    Btw, happy pooping Dooce!

  • HazelEyedPisces

    Bee-yoo-tee-ful. Absolutely.

    Congrats on the pooping! :)

  • Molly

    Ok.. So I’m sappy but your Chuck story made me get teary eyed… LOL
    Leta is a doll, as usual.. Thanks for sharing your stories!!!! (the four exclamations are to really get my point across.. )

  • Another Mommy

    Where did you get that coat?? I’d love to get one like for my baby.
    I love your site. You have been an inspiration for me, I laugh a lot reading your stories.

  • http://doctorsilence.blogspot.com dr. dave

    It’s a tough call today… who is cuter… baby or puppy??

    I think today, I’m gonna have to make the call for Baby Chuck. But only becuase I found myself, while looking at the second picture of him, thinking – “Aww, look it looks just like Chuck does now, right there across the bridge of his nose there, you can tell it’s him…” just like you do when you look at a baby picture of a person. Which is just weird.

  • Stephanie

    She is adorable. She does look just like her dad. And I love the little coat. Where did you get that and did they have it in any other color? My 15 month old would have that looking like ass in no time.

    Love your site!

  • http://www.geocities.com/mross711 Michele R

    So CUTE!! Did she get to go out in the snow? She looks ready for the cold!

  • http://www.partofthatworld.com Becca

    That’s so sweet. Mhmm tasty lens.

  • Sue from Ohio

    Leta is going to be the next Annie Leibovitz, I can see it now~~~~~~~~~~~

    Chuck’s story made me weepy…and I don’t GET weepy! I’m intrigued about the ‘former congressman’ thing, too…

  • http://urbanroutine.livejournal.com lara

    i am so in love with the former congressman.

    of france!!!!

  • sab

    she is adorable. she looks like a big snowball. a snowball I want to hug.

  • http://humanwrites.blogspot.com Daniel

    You know, that outfit makes her look kind of like a Jawa vacationing in Vail. She’s exceptionally cute.

  • http://www.xanga.com/home.aspx?user=WindyLou WindyLou

    For a second there, I thought Leta was munching on a Moon Pie. mmmmmmmm Moon Pies.

  • Torrie

    Can’t breathe…. Cuteness too much… Puppy…Gasp…Baby…Gasp…

  • http://buymediamonds.blogspot.com/ Em

    Where does she shop? I covet her coat.

  • http://angoras.blogspot.com/ TracyDee

    Cute puppy, cute baby, rational husband… what more can a person ask for? :)

  • http://doctorsilence.blogspot.com dr. dave

    PS: If I inadvertently implied above that your daughter was, in some objective, empirical sense, less cute than a dog this was not my intent. I was speaking only of the impact of the PHOTOGRAPHS in question and their immediate, personal, emotional appeal.

    Let me repeat – LETA IS CUTER THAN ANY DOG!!

    I hope I’ve made myself clear.

    her nose is the best, I think. never seen that shape before!

  • winger

    My daughter has a fleece jacket like that – we bought it last season at Old Navy. And, we Cardinals fans are stunned and disillusioned. But life goes on.

  • http://www.reddirtroad.ca Tina

    What a darling little angel! She sure is a cutie!!

    Your house is full of cuteness. Is that much cuteness allowed by law in Utah?

  • 1 Instigator

    hmmm…how can we turn this photo into a political debate? C-mon people, you can do it!!!! (the four exclamation points let you know I really, really believe in you.)

  • Dre

    Heather, I love ya to death, but I’d rather have you constipated for the next 86 years rather than have the Sox win. :-( I’m from St. Louis and was really hoping the Cards would win the series. (Or, heck, at least one game!)

    I just want to take my index finger and touch Leta’s nose and go, “Boink.” So cute and smushy!

    And Chuck! What an awesome story. Funny how things work out…
