Baby Bear

  • Lauren

    How did she get that man on her back?

  • Lauren

    For a second there I thought Jon was wearing a Members Only jacket! Then I realized it’s just a Patagonia…

  • Jennifer in Kansas City

    awwwww! What a sweet pic! I think my dog Polly would be really happy if I had one of those carriers & toted her 50# black lab self around. Except she’d want to face me so she could lick, lick, lick. Happy Monday Dooce Family & Dooce Readers!

  • Girl.A

    That slit-eyed against-my-will smile is the very same one I give my loved ones when they try to take my picture against my will for us eon the Internet when I am strapped into my Baby Bjorn!

  • August95

    Jon and Leta look like they are sharing a private joke. Great pic.

  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    I wish they made a Baby Bjorn for grown men. It would be cool to tool around in a little pouch like that.

    (That sounds incredibly weird, doesn’t it?)

  • Dawn

    Adorable pic. I can almost feel the cold air blowing in Leta’s eyes. She is so totally a “free sample” size of Jon!

  • emily


  • Molly

    What a very sweet picture!

  • Girl.A

    Leta will get revenge! That is the look of certain and final revenge.

    Just imagine Dooce and Blurb, when Leta’s 14 or so and has her own digicam and website.

    She’ll be *threatening* to post pics of the two of you mid-procedure, but what she’ll REALLY be snapping are the tickle pics and the moments when you’ve fallen on your 40-something ass in the snow and you’re reaching for a helping hand.

    That’s what I did with my first polaroid camera. The Falling Down Pics.

  • Gordon

    But where is her .50 sniper rifle?

  • christilee

    I love the picture. You guys make me green with envy!

  • SEK


  • Renae

    How fucking adorable. I am in love.

  • JulieT

    She looks so snuggly and warm! She’ll treasure this picture. :)

  • sweetney

    leta looks as though she might be singing, ahem, “pass the dutchie.”

  • honestyrain

    why is it that MY husband never carried the kids in the suggli? why that? huh? how comeski? i think i’ll ask him and show him this photo and say SEE real men carry babies!

    lovely pic. they are adorable, the furry one and the little one.

  • AyEnDeeAreEeAyAitch

    Oh! Look at thos etwo would you?! Very effin’ adorable!

  • David

    Jon: with those baby bjorns you’ve got to watch out. When their legs get to a certain age, your little cutie is going to be kicking you in the balls everytime she gets excited. If you want another child, have it now or make her learn to walk in time.

  • Library Girl

    Awwwwe, they look so cozy :)

  • Christiane

    Damn, that baby is cute!

  • closet metro

    I know that smile, that’s the, “Ahh, this is so warm and cuddly and relaxing, that I’ll be asleep before you get halfway down the block” smile. At least that’s what happened every time I walked with my daughter in her Bjorn.

  • Ms. Belle

    Look at that cutie!!!

  • Fish

    Actually, I think that smile means “wait until you see what has squished up over the top of my diaper in back because of all the bouncing.”

  • red

    dig jon’s specs. can’t believe frog baby is almost one – my how time flies!

  • the other Paula

    Oh my God, that is the cutest picture ever!!

  • Amanda B.

    I don’t suppose you’d be available to follow husbando and I around when we have a critter and take pics would you…

  • Michael

    “Duude, I am SO stoned.”

    (tip of the hat to Scottie G, stacy, and sweetney)(what’s with all the [other] stoner referencers having s-names?)

  • Colleen from NJ

    I remember that smile to mean:

    “I am now going to throw up a little bit, and you will walk around and not realize I have yak all over the Bjorn.”

    Leta is Mini Me.

  • jules

    lol fish, you’re probably right

  • Sarcomical

    just LOOK at that little grin! she looks like she’s cooking up some way to keep you guys up all night. ;)

  • Holly

    Awwwww nothing like seeing the Daddy’s girl bonding moments!

  • Becca

    Well, Leta is learning earlier how to con daddy into whatever she wants. She’s so cute.

  • JulieT

    Fish, it’s clear from your funny “squished” comment that you have a little one. Only people with extensive little one experience know about things like that.

  • Mir

    That’s precious. Tomorrow can we have a pic of her after she’s fallen asleep in the Bjorn? One of those adorable but geez-her-neck-looks-broken kinda shots that will cause cretins to send you mail about your shortcomings as a parent? Please??

  • Peefer


    Do you really read all this shit? It reminds of when I used to be rockstar and the teenage fans just couldn’t get enough of me.

    Oh yeah. I never was a rockstar. Bummer.

    From now on, it’s your front page only for me. Farewell, fan club.

  • Dara

    aw! adorable! papa bear and baby bear? lol too cute!

  • Amanda B.

    Guys guys! Jesus is back!

  • Mike Zeidler

    She kind of looks like a mini-Joel Hodgson from Mst3K. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

  • mrs. george #2

    JESUS! Dude, I’ve been looking all over for you, you missed some craaaaaazy shit this weekend. Plus, I need to borrow 20 bucks.

  • KimberlyF

    What a beautiful baby and father!

  • Amanda B.

    I love it when Jesus gets his smite on.

  • Girl.A

    Where is Jesus? I can’t see him!!

    I can’t remember what to do to make him appear!
    * “there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…”
    * Put my lips together and blow


  • mrs. george #2

    I think that he’s excluded you from the kingdom of badass motherfuckin saints because of your cock flavoured potty mouth.

  • Marla

    That could be the cutest face she’s made in all the pictures you’ve posted. I mean…she’s always adorable. But there’s just something about THAT face..mmmm.

  • Amanda B.

    Girl A.- i think it’s worshiping false Dooce idols that gets his goat. He don’t play that shit.

  • mrs. george #2

    Not to mention your filty language.

  • the niffer

    Amanda B.! Don’t tease. I’m so not ready for Jesus yet. I look like shit today.

    Is he only appearing in Utah?

    Great pic. I totally agree Leta looks as stoned as her mother and aunt did the other day.

  • mrs. george #2

    *filthy language.
