    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.

  • Diana

    Aw, poor thing. She looks so cute though, you gotta post more pics of her in that outfit!

  • http://homepage.mac.com/christykilgorehadley christy

    I laughed this morning when the baby whacked herself in the head with a rattle. You are not alone.

  • contessa

    At least she’s got her socks on!!

    …..and then the beautiful princess found an orphaned baby frog in the woods….

  • Tiff

    seems we share the same motherly instinct! Here’s to the many bandaids our children will go through over the years!

  • Susie

    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.

    so cute!

  • Karen

    Is she walking now?

  • http://deux.diary-x.com Diana

    She is so adorable.

    At least she’s wearing socks. :)

  • http://www.digitalcatharsis.com The Mighty Jimbo

    she looks like the turtle princess!

    how do you not bite her feet like every 12 seconds?

  • http://bethology.blogspot.com Beth

    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!

  • http://perfectpeacefarm.blogspot.com Gordon

    Now I am #28!

  • Karen Rani

    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!

  • hdc

    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.

  • http://www.partofthatworld.com Becca

    You should make a special halloween photo gallery, full of leta and chuck in their costumes

  • Melynda

    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.

  • http://chookooloonks.typepad.com Karen

    Where’d all the snow go?

  • http://humanwrites.blogspot.com Daniel

    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?

  • http://artzystuff.blogspot.com Sue From Ohio

    …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…..

  • http://heather-anne.com Heatheranne

    That’s a good story to tell your future son in law.

  • liz

    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.

  • http://bytchinny.typepad.com BytchInNY

    wow – Leta in that frog costume is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!

  • http://www.perpetualkarma.com/weblog/julieisboo.html Julie

    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.)

  • http://kevin.inuration.com Kevin

    >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?

    Those are her cousins. See the attatched text.

  • http://www.acid-cookie.com Anne

    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 ;)

  • http://thesymposium.us paige

    silly babies showing up drunk for the photo ops.

  • beachgal

    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?

  • Amanda B.

    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.

  • http://www.saidanything.com arielle

    those are some nice socks she’s wearing. both of them!


  • http://chubbypixel.com/mando/index.php Amanda in Washington

    So who gets to eat Leta’s candy?

  • http://www.ipengy.com Chris From Ohio

    Baby down!

  • http://jellybean.genesismuds.com/rhianna.html Joanna

    Absolutely adorable.

    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.

  • Visvoice

    I really admire your view of the world.

  • http://www.gigglinguniverse.blogspot.com Em in Houston

    I am now LAUGHING OUT LOUD! I would have done the same thing! Please more than 1 a day!!! Too cute! MORE HALLOWEEN PICS!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Amber

    As long as you didn’t actually push her for the sole purpose of taking this photo, should be fine.

    Too cute!!

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

    Also meant to say: WE HAVE A FROGGIE DOWN!


  • http://blogs.salon.com/0002504 Anita

    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….

  • http://www.livejournal.com/users/littlehoney Aimee

    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.
    Like turtles…

  • http://coolbeansmama.blogspot.com coolbeans

    She’s just relaxing. Kicking back. Looking for animal shapes in the clouds. Finding her “happy place”.

  • http://www.oxygenvalve.com/vanessa Vanessa

    At least she’s not a sockless baby frog. :) Adorable!

  • sarab

    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.

  • http://www.pattisunshine.blogspot.com patti

    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!)

  • Kristin

    Pretty scary when my first thought upon logging in today was, “Wonder what Leta was for Halloween?” LOL– Adorable frog.

  • http://fridayfilms.diaryland.com Friday

    It’s so creepy when they get flipped over like that. Those waving baby apendages…ugh.

    Once again – cuteness achieved.

  • Danika

    Sarab~Check Saturdays picture of the day.

  • Cristina

    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

  • Kano

    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 :)
