    Now why on earth would you help her up? Remind me to show you the pictures of my daughter after she fell head-first into a huge cardboard box, as a toddler. I guess technically, they’re just pictures of her legs waving in the air. I love those pictures. Totally worth the shattered eardrums I got while taking them.

    i love the look of resignation on her face–

    “sigh. how did i KNOW she’d take a picture instead of rush to my aid. *&%^&$$#$ papparazzi mommy.”

  • laura

    Socks! She’s wearing socks! Finally proof that she is not always the sockless baby…

    well, that IS what happens to turtles and that is how their predators eat their tender bellies. i am sure the only predator to get to her belly was her momma with the kissy-face.

    how cute!

  • Ehle

    At least she has on both socks!

    She has both socks on! ;) (I know, I am not the first to comment on this fact but that is what I thought when I saw the picture)

    Leta whatever you do – don’t let those feet hit the ground!

  • RJ

    at least both of her socks are intact. . . marriage saved for the time being. . .

    Hahaha! That’s hilarious. Her little feet! What a great picture.

    P.S. What’s the prize for being first? I’m just sayin…

  • sab

    This picture and your explanation made me laugh out loud and made my day.

    It’s a shame to think that someone out there reading this right now is also typing a nasty email about your parenting skills.

    How adorable!
    I look forward to reading you site every day. It’s refreshing to hear someone else with the same kind of sarcastic wit that I am known for!
    Thanks for the entertainment!

    I hate it when I forget the r on your. I promise I know how to talk…. :P

    Personally, I would like to see a photo of two sockless Leta feet. I adore baby feet. In fact, whenever I’m feeling a little peckish, I gnaw on my baby’s toes. Definitely the cutest part of babies. I love how their feet are all round and pudgy on account of they haven’t been walked on yet :)

  • http://chloeishere.diaryland.com/ Chloe

    *Squee.* That picture makes me want to have kids! So cute… little feet waving… froggy… can’t think cleary… must have… baby! And she’s just laying there. Lookin’ at the sky. Thinkin’ ’bout socks. How many comments include the word “socks” today? Ah, eight. And now nine, with mine. Yup. Socks.

  • http://radiantly.net Calli

    Aww! She’s so precious. A turtle with tiny socked footsies.

    hahaha! funny turtle baby! also! “benjamin franklin is a dickhead” is completely awesome! woot! woot!

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

    It’s those round little bottoms… they can’t sit up for very long before they topple over. Oh so cute :)

  • Liisa

    I must say that the whole thing about your Mother is abso-fucking-lutely hilarious. Sorry if that makes me bad. But, well, I sorta’ am.
    Cute pic, of course. Costumes are so much fun. Go buy a whole bunch when they are 75% off to keep in the dress-up box(okay, maybe next year). My daughter said, “Can I wear my costume to school again next week?” Ahh, yes, if only your Daddy would agree with us…

  • Ashley

    Everyday I sacrifice the safety of my computer and turn off my firewall… just so I can see the Daily Dooce Photo…

    Today was SO worth it.

  • robin

    Oh my god. I went to bed Saturday night thinking I was going to gain an hour of sleep. Nope. Not with a 9 month old. Not only did he get up at 6am, but his naps are completely messed up and he doesn’t know when to go to sleep at night. Then I read your entry, and just about peed my pants. Good stuff. Right on target.

  • robin

    And just for kicks, you can check out that 9 month old….he was an Old Navy pumpkin. :-)

    Can’t comment. Laughing too hard. Who does have a limp dick the size of a windshield wiper?

  • erika

    AWWW-she is soooo cute!!

  • Gia on Guam


    I’d like to see a photo of Leta on her knees crawling like a proper frog baby. Also, please don’t keep us in suspense any longer about Chuck’s costume.

  • http://thinkdrastic.net Olly

    The costumes are total fecking genius. Just brilliant. Expecially the dawg birdee.

    I went for the “axe-murdering zombie crossed with tango-man” look, which worked surprisingly well.

    Seeng as you’re in the states I’m not convinced you’ll have a clue who the tango-man is, so I should explain that he was a bright orange semi-naked man used in the Tango (soft drink) commercials in the UK a few years back. He got banned for inciting kids to slap each other!

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

    you know, now that i look closely – the left sock seems to be working it’s way off the adorably tiny foot.

  • http://saladwhore.diaryland.com Saladwhore

    At least she has her socks on!

  • http://psalm37.blogspot.com dänika

    omg there’s another danika. :O

    that said, Leta is adorable. I love that picture!

  • mrs. george #2

    GEORGE! You hottie stud, you. Gimme some Halloween lovin’.

  • Melissa

    so…does it seem to you that Leta looks as thrilled as her mama walking around the office party looking at costumes?

    finally…a pictue PROVING she is her mama’s girl!

  • Marti

    Heather, Oh Heather.
    WHat a wonderful tale these pics tell.

  • http://www.nonameslob.com no name slob

    While I realize that no one will probably even read my lame little Comment #99, I’m just DYING to know what the 9 barn animals were! I’ve been wracking my brain trying to come up with that many. Cow, pig, sheep, chicken…um…horse? Goose? Seems sort of redundant, with the chicken. Goat, maybe? I’m stretching here, and that still only SEVEN!

  • shy me

    that’s a friggin hilarious picture!

  • StacyG

    The pictures of Chuck as a Chick belong on a Hallmark card of some sort. Too funny! I loved all the pics.

  • Gia on Guam

    Finally…photo climax!

    And there’s a George to boot!

  • Molly

    I am in tears from laughing so hard! I am so happy that you had a good Mormon Halloween.

    Leta is an adorable Frog! She looks about as amused as you are in the first photo!
