As you can see here clearly she inherited THE FOREHEAD

  • Spurious Plum

    I’m starting to understand your urge to gobble Leta’s cheeks. She’s so damn cute!

  • Stacey

    WOOO! Go Leta!!

  • Angie

    Cool, she looks like she should be lead singer with The Prodigy.

    Smack My Bitch Up!

  • Tracy

    Closet Metro – brilliant! =)

  • tIffany

    WooooooOO Go Leta!!!! The pigtails propel her across the room!

  • Amy

    How did you get her to hold still for all that? I can barely get Liv to hold still for me to brush her hair.

    I think sedatives are in order.

  • mg2

    She stole my car, too, Strizz. Don’t let her near your kids, it only takes her five minutes to teach them how to do it with a nutcracker, some crisco and two koi fish.

  • Cathi

    Closet Metro – I’m singing along. It’s beautiful!!!

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Tiffany, is the hairdo giving you ideas if you have a girl this time?
    Or are you plotting evil things for Nicolaus’ hair?

    Striz — I didn’t actually “steal” my parents’ car. Let’s call it “liberation.”

  • christy

    Leta looks so crisp against that sky it almost looks photoshopped. Mmmm …. crispy baby. Nice work.

    Also: GO LETA GO!!

  • ashik

    Pigtails and little pink outfits are the reason I want to have a girl. nothing as precious as making your child’s head look like a little palm tree.

  • Win

    She is mobile!

    Go Leta! Go!

  • Cristin

    Oh, and thanks, Closet Metro. I’ve got that goddamn REM song stuck in my head now!!

    me too Marie

  • Big Gay Sam

    *Marketing Brainstorm!!!!*

    We need a Leta doll. It’s a doll with serious attitude. :p

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    mg2, when I get the Crisco and koi fish, it’s less to do with car stealin’ and more to do with butt burg’lin’

    In your case, the nutcracker would be superfluous, though.

  • Zach

    Yeah, you know the tv and stuff in the background? You’re screwed.

  • Chris

    I love the way the fleeciness of the sweater complements the clouds, while the color contrasts with the sky. That and the ponytail triangle and arm triangle — great composition!

  • Melanie S.

    Yeah for Leta Frog!!! Go Frog! Go!

  • Jackie

    Wow I’m so happy to hear she’s moving around, but I realize that must be a whole new world of things to worry about for you! I’ve so enjoyed reading your blog, and you give us such a great view into your life. I feel weirdly part of it ;) But not in a creepy way! Thank you!!

  • TulsaOkie

    Go Leta Go!! Get the electrical plugs plugged Dooce, your life is forever changed!!

    Great News!!

  • mg2

    a labiacracker would be more like it…

  • Anne

    Unleash the beast! Go Leta!

    Are you guys thrilled or what?

  • Girl.A

    “do it with a nutcracker, some crisco and two koi fish.”

    Isn’t that the way everybody *does it?*


  • AndreaBT

    Dooce, it’s been nice reading your blog. I’m guessing you won’t be updating for the next, oh, three years or so. I’m holding my second daughter (2 months) as I type, (first daughter is four), so I know what I’m talking about.

    But I’ll keep checking!

  • LadyBug

    Am I just a total dork, that I got almost as giddy about Leta going mobile as I did about my own little one doing his little army crawl? Yes, yes I am.

    Go, Leta, go! And go, Dooce, go, chasing after her!

    Aw, geez. I’m all misty-eyed.
    Such. a. dork.

  • Susan

    Oh holy day.

  • Jenie

    Yay!!! Leta’s cruisin’ now!

  • beachgal

    Oh yeah! Look at that look in her eyes! She’s thinking, “Hey, I can get over there and get into that stuff I’ve previously totally ignored!” You only THINK you are babyproofed until the baby starts crawling/walking.

    Congrats, tho, I’m sure you’re thrilled. Yay for Leta.

  • ashik

    I wonder if like eleven years from now we’ll all be here AAAAAWWWing at her first period.


    she’s already got the winged liners all ready..

  • Joana

    I think it has been said, but your life as you knew it IS.NOW.OVER.
    But I have to add I am thriled for Leta, I am bursting with happiness!
    GO, LETA, GO!!!

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Does it count if it just *smells* like there are koi fish in my pocket?

  • Kassi

    Babies in piggy tails…I love it.

  • Andrea in Canada

    Dooce! Please take a picture of Leta moving around the room for us all to see!! Yay, Leta!

  • Dang Cold..

    You guys ever see that movie with Jim Carrey “The Trueman show”? Do you get the feeling we’re all going to watch this girl grow up in a similar kind’ve way?

    I’m thinking up theme music in my head for the Leta show. Perhaps something in the jingle of School House Rock?? I just always liked it..

  • mg2

    Only if you’re covered in crisco.

  • Amanda B.

    Oh she’s crawling!!!

    Yay Leta! Go Leta Go!

    eek eek eek!

  • Marcia

    GO LETA GO!!!!!

  • Michael

    Magdala at 195: I thought the same thing, but then I’m a guy, so disgusting thoughts like that are nothing new. Witness:

    Peggasus at 198: She’s going to send the next four years bent over? (horny neighbor from Family Guy): Alllright!

    I have Explorer and now I can see numbers! It’s like Jesus touched my eyes!

  • Closet Metro

    is that a koi fish in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

  • Closet Metro

    That’s great, it starts with an earthquake, dogs and frogs, a Letaplane -
    Mother Dooce is not afraid.
    Eye of a Congressman, feed the dog a poptart -
    web serves the Dooce Dorks, don’t blog your own job.
    Feed it up a post,
    cabbage boobs, Avon too.
    Numbered comment structure with a love of “first!”
    Left for Texas, and we say “OF FRANCE!!!”
    NYT and ABC breathing down your neck.
    Team by team reporters baffled, Dooce, typing
    ”dork”. Look at that “dork dork!”
    Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
    common group, but it’ll do. Save yourself, serve yourself.
    Web serves the Dooce Dorks, listen to your heart bleed.
    Tell me with the rapture and the
    reverent in the mormon – right.
    You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright
    light, Leta’s on the move.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it.
    It’s the end of the world as we know it.
    It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

  • Peter Hentges

    Houston, we have a crawler.

  • Toren

    I didn’t think that was a real background at first, I thought Leta had been superimposed into one of your “chuck set-ups”. That’s a rad-ass picture.

  • Em

    Life will never be the same now that she can move! Congratulations on making it to the next phase of parenting!!!!!

  • Girl.A

    Why does it always gotta be either or? Why not all of the above?

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Operation Vehicle Liberation?

    My Dad used to borrow peoples boats so he and his friends could go water skiing.

    They also stole bowling balls from the local alley and rolled them down hills at cars.

    And shot up their friends car sp it would oh so Al Capone.

  • boo

    when will you people stop with the “FIRST!!!” crap. i mean, come on. with every single photo posted, the first 10-20 comments are peppered with people thinking they are first. why is it so important to be first?

  • Closet Metro

    Girl.A – Always thinking outside the box. (huh-huh – I said box.)

  • africankelli

    YAY Leta! Move those little legs! We’re cheering for you!!

  • ashik

    outside the monkey.

  • stacy

    Jesus! When will people stop complaining about the “first” crap? It will never stop. ever. And when will people stop complaining about the complaining? Christ, I have a headache. Can’t you see that there are more important things going on? Like Leta CRAWLING?
