    Don’t forget your designer beach towel to drape over your head when you get caught in Albequerque, Muff.

    Just kidding with ya’ Naralius. You have fine English. What is your first language?

    She’s so incredibly cute. And she’s really starting to look like a little girl with her very own personality (rebelious! stubborn!) rather than a baby.

  • The Muff

    I’ll use the towels from the shower. You know, 1 of 1 showers I had.

    I feel sorry for anyone who has 14 bridesmaids and yet has NOONE to talk to about her “issues”…
    Sounds like she needs to pick her friends better.
    I still say she needs to be prosecuted.
    And my guess is, she ran because her future husband HAS NO BALLS! I mean, she runs off and he STILL wants to walk down the aisle with her? Whipped I tell ya.
    Without respect, love can’t last very long.

  • The Muff

    We did meet online through my aol personal ad. Does that qualify as w.t.’ish?
    Come on, guys, i wanna have a white trash weddin’ with matching Bride and Groom teddy bears on the head table at Denny’s

  • naralius

    Spanish. thank god I live in Miami, where english is almost useless

  • The Muff

    I still can’t believe someone called me “white trash” on a previous days comments. How does getting married in Vegas make one white trash?
    And what is it with the term “White trash”? Is that even politically correct? Frankly, I’m offended. I’m calling the ACLU.

  • naralius

    you are lucky. My little siblings dont like to speak spanish, I think is very important for them to be fluid in both english ans spanish, but I guess they are lazy and dont want to feel diferent from their “american” friends

  • Mary

    Heather, Leta is just growing up so fast. I love the black and white picture, it’s a fabulous idea. She looks so classic and beautiful. I’m sure everyday she amazes you both.

  • Dani13

    That is an adorable picture! She is sooo cute!

  • The Muff

    Giggles: My sister’s husband is a pharmacist for Osco, so she pays only 12% over cost on everything. 12 dollar foundation? 3 for me! I’m totally hitting the malls when I get out there.
    OH! My love is picking up our engraved wedding bands TODAY! I can’t believe it!
    Anyone know any weird superstitions about trying them on before the big day?
    Oh, and I also picked up my bus ticket to Albuquerque yesterday, ya know, just in case…

  • http://talkingtoad.blogspot.com/ TulsaOkie

    Yet another beautiful post to your beautiful daughter. Oh and I sure do love her hair. Happy 15month Day Leta!

    Muffy, ain’t nothin’ wrong with getting married in Vegas! I’d LOVE to have my wedding at the Bellagio ;-)
    My fiance did suggest an Elvis wedding in Vegas but I had to put my foot down on that – I don’t do flares ;-) LOL

    Hey Striz, I just sent you my info. I can’t wait to do the exchange!

    *waving hello at comment #32*

    Greetings to you, Sherri A-for-action! Seeing you in the cooments threads is one reason why I made sure to use my last initial when de-lurking.

    W-is-for….. warthog?

  • The Muff

    Bucky, Whip me,beat me, make me write bad checks.

    Guys, The Muff’s days of nuttiness are OVER! Thank uppercase God.

    Now we can SWING!

  • The Muff

    Heather, you need to frame that one. It has a very “classic” quality about it. I would love to see how you display your photos in your home. I’m comin’ over….
    arrghhh….I’ll be under your bed, looking for detritus.

    You know what? After my Betty Broderick-esque stories the other day, maybe I should keep even jokes about stalking out of my comments.

    Heather, nice shot. Tryin’ to keep it about you.

  • http://www.lifeisfunformost.blogspot.com Cindy a.k.a. giggles

    Muffy – sounds like you’re all set. :-)

    The run-away bride sounds (from the newsbites from yesterday) like she has some problems – perhaps from depression or something similar. I hope she gets the help she needs. Also, did you all hear anything about her being engaged before and getting out of the engagement? I heard the story on our local news, but haven’t heard it on the national.

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    My favorite picture is that of Leta standing up on her very own! And I also like the pic where she is laughing at the door. She is just too cute for words.

  • http://nicsplace.blogspot.com Nicole

    I use statcounter.com for my site meter. It only keeps free stats on the most recent 100 visitors, but that’s enough for me b/c I only get around 20-60 hits a day (I just started mine in earnest last week though). If I got more, and wanted the stats it would be 9.00 a month.

  • naralius

    Lol.. Im disapointed not to find Muffy’s blog. Not that she makes me laugh, that I like very much.
    excuse me for my bad english.. you know english is my second language (but it sounds like if it was my 3rd or 4th)

  • naralius

    good morning everyone… Nicole, I hope Muffy has all her teeth and his husband to be is not related to her.

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Leta really looks like Heather in this photo. She has such a thoughtful look on her face, too. Like she is planning her next attack!

  • The Muff

    They had a special on VH1 last night about Britney’s rise to fame. I wonder if Heather tivo’d it.

    Hey! There’s another Sherri on here (hi, Sherri W.).

    Now I’ve got to come up with a better way to identify myself…

  • http://bucky4eyes.blogspot.com Bucky Four-Eyes

    Striz, I’m workin’ on the teeth thing. Wouldn’t wanna be mistaken for non-trash, now, would I?

    ‘Scuse me while I expel this wad o’ chaw…

    It is useless in Houston, too. If you don’t know Spanish, you are lost half the time here in the city. Luckily my boyfriend is my personal translater. And my boyfriend’s almost 4 year old son. He is fluent in both English and Spanish. He is always acting as my little translater.

    Thus spake The Muff: “Without respect, love can’t last very long”

    True, Muff, true. But, without respect, the sex can be really top drawer!

  • Michelle Brady

    That is a beautiful picture to go with the beautiful entry. Wow.

  • http://eightpaw.net Jess

    Happy 15 Months to the child who is obsessed with her kitchen floor! ;) You are a cutie Leta!

    Does anyone have a Waldo de los Rios “Sinfonias” CD?

  • JulieO

    Thanks, Heather, for your fantastic monthly updates. I’m dealing with lots of snot with my 6-month-old, so I commiserate (no tantrums yet, however). Hey, when do we get to see a photo of Leta having a tantrum?

    Why do we have five day work weeks and only a two day weekend? I prefer the 4/3 ratio myself. I mean, that’s fair, right?

  • http://panamenya.blogspot.com Monique

    What a beautiful entry about your daughter, Heather. They all are. They always get me all misty-eyed and wanting a daughter of my own. Thank you for sharing your life with the world. :)

    ‘Tis a daughter’s right, no, _duty_ to drive her mother crazy. Just ask the Avon World Sales Leader.

    Or my mom.

  • Henryk_

    I agree with siacgem (?)

    that look in her eye says something…trouble perhaps? hehe..shes adorable :)

  • http://laquet.blogspot.com Jo

    Lovely photo – she has beautiful eyes!

  • http://ladybug4791.tripod.com/ladybug/ LadyBug

    Is it just my monitor? That picture looks really dark and a little creepy.

    But Leta is lovely, as always.

    And, Dooce? The monthly newsletter was just beautiful. Those pictures of Leta are so sweet.
