Thank you, Emily, for putting down the puppies long enough to take this photo.

    I like Chuck standing stoically in the background. He looks like he is on guard duty.

    Leta’s tiny fist in the thumbnail says only one thing to me:
    “Mama said knock you OUT!”

    Oh, cuteness! You all look great. And you look happy!

  • maura

    great picture! Her hair is really getting long!

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

    Ugh! So *not* cute.

    Yeah, totally obvious that was a lie, huh?
    Is that Chuck in the background or some other dog? Does his tail do that?

    Hmmm… was browsing backward to the “Help Me Name this Photo” and… had to smirk at the
    “Burning Bush” and then “The Burning OF Bush.”
    …I kind of liked *those*…
    (& this photo is very sweet)

    Great pic but where is Chuck?

    He is part of the family too?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, the power of an image to bring a smile to the face!

    I love the maternal aspect of this photo, too… We almost never see you and Leta together (usually because you’re the photographer). Totally adorable.

  • http://www.danielleblog.com Danielle

    um… scott, I don’t think that is chuck. too yellow and too big.

    When I saw this photo I said “Awww, that’s nice.”

    Then I looked lower and about bust a gut at the ads for
    “Louis Armstrong doll” and
    “Armstrong books”

    HA!

    Louis Armstrong doll, indeed.

    I am so glad I am pregnant already, because if I weren’t my ovaries would be screaming for mercy right now.

    I love the pictures of the three of you together. :)

    I’m kind of mad right now that when its cold men can grow beards to keep themselves warm. Where was I when they were handing out beards!?!?!

  • MyChelle

    Almost all smiles on the Armstrong family…how luurrrrvvvleeee!

  • Smark!

    Love it when we get a pic of *almost* everyone together.

    Perfect Picture. Or you could call it “Fred II”

  • http://clobberblogger.blogspot.com/ Colleen from NJ

    Does anyone remember “Where’s Waldo?” books?

    Where’s Chuck?

    You should definitely frame this one. Definitely.

    Obviously you all look cute in this photo, but Heather, I think you take the cake for the cutest in this photo–which is hard to do, considering that your daughter is so adorable. Nice work.
