  • Jason

    huh, first to post for the day with my first comment on

    It is a very cute picture.

  • minxlj

    Aw bless. Mischief in the making.

  • Badger

    Aw. AAWWW! Just aw.

  • gwen

    Cute photo. Where’s all the snow?

  • Marcia

    what a great photo

  • Cheryl

    I love this picture… Your mommie-ness is showing and it’s awesome! Thanks Emily!

  • Scott

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

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

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

  • Em

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

  • maura

    great picture! Her hair is really getting long!

  • Honey Bunny


  • 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?

  • Circus Kelli

    Oh! That is the bestest family portrait evah! Lovely! Sweet! Just plain wonderful and heart-warming!

    Happy Monday, Armstrongs!

  • Mojo


  • Jennifer

    What a cute picture! You look truly happy!

  • Tiger

    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)

  • red

    awe, i love this!! you guys are so precious.

  • Wicked H

    Great pic but where is Chuck?

    He is part of the family too?

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Visvoice

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

  • becca

    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.

  • 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”


    Louis Armstrong doll, indeed.

  • shaunacat

    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. :)

  • Tabbie

    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.

  • gordon

    Leta: “Ok mom, I did my part…I acted cute for the picture…now wheres my bottle…per contract.”

  • Sarah

    You are SMILING!! What a beautiful picture of your family (helps that you are all so beautiful, too).

    Yeah, what kind of dog is Chuck anyway? Just curious.

  • closet metro

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

  • Colleen from NJ

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

    Where’s Chuck?

    You should definitely frame this one. Definitely.

  • Mary

    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.

  • kim

    it makes me really happy to see you three so happy..

  • JuJuBee

    This would look great in black and white…beautiful.
