While posing for pictures with her cousins Leta kept falling over backwards. And, of course, instead of running to her rescue I just stood there and took pictures.

Handstitched children’s crown
Avon just needs to sponsor my whole blog
LMAO That is a beautiful photo! One I’m sure she’ll appreciate in a few years.
Yes, I’m the same type of mother…we have oodles of photos of my son crying. My husband just thinks it’s cruel. I personally think it’s hilarious.
Aw, poor thing. She looks so cute though, you gotta post more pics of her in that outfit!
I laughed this morning when the baby whacked herself in the head with a rattle. You are not alone.
At least she’s got her socks on!!
…..and then the beautiful princess found an orphaned baby frog in the woods….
seems we share the same motherly instinct! Here’s to the many bandaids our children will go through over the years!
Ha — too cute. I’m so with you, though. The first time our daughter had a tantrum (and by that I mean she lay screaming on the floor and kicked her feet), we laughed and took pictures. Yeah, CPS should be coming any day now to collect our kids.
That is so funny!
Ha I am #28! A record for me! No #1 here I come!!
People, this, and excuse me for bringing football into this, Heather’s comments page is becoming like the AP college football poll.
Baby, yes of course, is totally cute. Maybe I will make my wife happy some day and agree to have one.
leta fall down go boom.
Is she walking now?
She is so adorable.
At least she’s wearing socks.
she looks like the turtle princess!
how do you not bite her feet like every 12 seconds?
That just reminds me of the part in “A Christmas Story” when Ralphie’s brother falls down in that huge snow suit, and he’s rolling around and can’t get up!
Now I am #28!
Poor frog baby – we put a witch’s hat on the baby (4 months old now) last night and took pictures while he screamed…..I’m so with you Heather…..wait till you have a 2nd child – they get treated even more poorly! ROFL!
Add an extra element of humor to the falling down by putting a bit too much powder in the diaper. Once she’s actually bipedal it’ll be hilarious every time she does the sit-fall thing and poofs of baby powder billow out.
You should make a special halloween photo gallery, full of leta and chuck in their costumes
I am laughing so hard at your nubbin for today. I can just imagine the look on your husbands face when he heard you say that, priceless.
Of course Leta is gorgeous! I love that costume.
Where’d all the snow go?
Heather, I’m curious: is that you there on the right, with the ribbon wand and the lacey white dress? Or is that DJ Blurb?
…One fell off and bumped her head
The Mommy called the dr. and the dr. said…
Why did you push her that was sooo mean…..hehehe sorry, that was my sad attempt at humor, again…..
That’s a good story to tell your future son in law.
Well at least she’s got both of her socks on.
i think today is the first time I’ve seen someone actually be right when they say they are first to comment. Congrats Sven.
wow – Leta in that frog costume is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!
Hahahahaha…I can’t stop laughing! Those drunken midgets are so funny sometimes. The look on Leta’s face just cracks me up. (And don’t worry, I totally would have kept taking pictures too.)
>Heather, Iâ€™m curious: is that you there on the right, with the ribbon wand and the lacey white dress? Or is that DJ Blurb?
Those are her cousins. See the attatched text.
OMG, I’m number 40-something! Why are we so concerned with being #1? Anyway … thanks for getting that picture before (instead of?) helping her up. It’s what any good mother would do
silly babies showing up drunk for the photo ops.
Maybe if we all keep asking for more pics of Leta and Chuck, Dooce will give in and post more?
Please post more Halloween pics. Pretty please, with sushi on top?
Of course, you realize she will use this picture later in life when she really really “needs” that cell phone/car/D&G purse/prom dress…etc.
“well, mom…remember when I kept falling over and you kept taking pictures…, it’s…it’s just going to take time for me to heal from that…” *mamadooce forks over cash*
I tried it on my parents anyway. Didn’t work.
those are some nice socks she’s wearing. both of them!
So who gets to eat Leta’s candy?
P.S. Any self-respecting mother would do as you did and continue taking pictures. I have pictures of my daughter stuck under an exersaucer (yes I said *under*), pics of tantrums, pics of yellow rubber gloves on her feet… the list goes on.
I really admire your view of the world.
I am now LAUGHING OUT LOUD! I would have done the same thing! Please more than 1 a day!!! Too cute! MORE HALLOWEEN PICS!!!!!!!!!!!
As long as you didn’t actually push her for the sole purpose of taking this photo, should be fine.
Also meant to say: WE HAVE A FROGGIE DOWN!
My husband just pointed out that it would be more likely that my mom would use that analogy to me instead of the other way around…and I’m known in the family as talking like a sailor.
Mom just says the darnedest things….
That is the cutest picture ever. She doesn’t even seem worried. It was like an everyday occurance and eventually someone would come and get her.
She’s just relaxing. Kicking back. Looking for animal shapes in the clouds. Finding her “happy place”.
At least she’s not a sockless baby frog. Adorable!
I hope we will get a picture of Chuck’s costume soon. I’ve hardly been able to sleep after that tantalizing sneak peak last week. Great picture of Leta.
I once had a conversation with my ultraconservative-nosexbeforemarriage-mom where I meant to say ” I really love Bilbo’s Dill Dip” But what came out was “I really love Dildos” (Soooo relieved when she ended up laughing her arse off!)
Pretty scary when my first thought upon logging in today was, “Wonder what Leta was for Halloween?” LOL– Adorable frog.
It’s so creepy when they get flipped over like that. Those waving baby apendages…ugh.
Once again – cuteness achieved.
Sarab~Check Saturdays picture of the day.
I want you to know that I am at work practically pissing my pants with your limp dick story. I am crying, tears streaming down my face. priceless
Put me in a friggn frog suit and then expect me to sit up straight while you take my picture? What the heck is wrong with you adults? Now hurry and pick me up out of these leaves. Then she cries cause she realizes they are all related
