  • Flikka

    Fantastic news! Enjoy every minute – dying to hear Leta’s reaction to her baby sister!! (…and wondering how long it will take me to stop thinking of her as “not Maria”!! LOL)

    June 14th is the birthday of my best friend, the most wonderful woman ever, raised by an awesome mother and father, surrounded by loving siblings. May that date be as lucky for Marlo!

  • Helena

    Congratulations. Now you have 2 gorgeous daughters…

    She looks like a 3 month old…no conehead….no bumpy baby acne…just absolutley beautiful..like her kick ass name..

  • http://mommylu.blogspot.com Kori

    Congratulations! Killer name for a beautiful kiddo!

  • Kate

    Congratulations!!! She’s gorgeous. And I love the name choice!

    She is just so adorable, I love that sweet little face!

    … Welcome to the world little Marlo! :-)

  • Lanie

    I love the picture of little Marlo and her Grandpa.

    She looks like she has HUGE eyes!

  • Katie C.

    Your new little one is gorgeous! You know, I’ve never been a fan of that name, but somehow, it fits her so well and I like the name more, now. It is a cute name that is different, sort of old-fashioned, and yet hip at the same time. I think of Marlo Thomas, of course – who is super adorable!

    Congratulations on your baby – I am sure Ms. Leta is thrilled!

  • Ingrid

    Congratulations! She is so beautiful. Great name – - you should totally play some M.I.A. to welcome her home.

    GAH! CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cannot wait to hear all the gory details of the birth. :o )

  • Haley

    I think you’re going to be responsible for a huge baby boom as female dooce-fans everywhere forget to take birth control pills in their post-seeing-marlo’s-first-pictures haze.

    Not only a beautiful baby– she’s a beautiful NEWBORN.. that is saying a looot.

  • http://www.stickyfeet2.net Jamie

    Being a person who has never really desired children, I found myself surprised to have been excited about the birth of little Marlo. I think it’s a testament to the stories you tell here…congrats!

  • Kristen

    So, you didn’t do the freebirthing?

  • forkboy1965

    What? You were pregnant?

    Get out.


  • http://kinderkinder.wordpress.com partikelfg

    Oh, she looks so cute. Congratulations and a wonderful time to get to know each other!!!

  • Ellisha

    Congratulations! she’s so adorable.

  • Danielle

    Congratulations to all four of you! She is absolutely gorgeous!

    My son turned two weeks old today. I look forward to reading your adventures with Marlo and seeing if I’m having the same adventures with Marley, as they are so close in age.

    Also, I completely understand the fact that the boobs are no longer your own. I highly recommend Lansinoh lanolin. It’s a wonder for sore or chapped nipples. Their breast pads are a miracle as well. I haven’t leaked through my shirt yet.

    she’s beautiful!

    She’s breathtaking! Marlo Armstrong sounds like the cool girl with the bewitching smile who has all the answers & you want to copy her homework. She also makes the best lanyards at camp. Nice work Heather and great genetics there Armstrongs!!

  • http://twitter.com/VictoryTrue Chriss

    Beautiful! And holy cow, is she smiling in that last picture? Looks like another advanced child for the Armstrongs :)

    And get some rest woman!

    A little late on the congratulatory comment, but: what a beautiful addition to a beautiful family. Many congratulations! I can’t WAIT to hear about your L&D tale, sounds like everything went wonderfully! The world would not hurt to hear a good “I am woman, hear me ROAR!” story, so I wait with bated breath.

    Sleep well!

  • Jesi

    She is absolutely gorgeous!! Such big eyes and beautiful lips. Congratulations to both you and Jon!! My husband and I just had our little girl 2 months ago… only our oldest just turned 18 months… so I am slightly insane :) I am sure Leta will be a BIG help!!

  • http://marriageconfessions.com Katie

    This is the nicest I’ve ever seen you, Heather. Are you still medicated, sweetie???

    P.S. Marlo has KILLER lips!

  • Megan

    Congratulations, Armstrong family! Marlo is beautiful…if fact, she’s probably one of the prettiest newborns I’ve ever seen. I have been a frequent visitor of your site for many years now, so I was really looking forward to this blessed event. I have so enjoyed “watching” Leta grow up, and I am sure it will be equally as enjoyable watching Marlo, too. Best wishes to you all….

  • Kathy

    She’s lovely, and that is an awesome name. Congratulations to you and your family.

  • Janice

    Nice job. Really nice job. Congratulations go out to all of you!

  • http://conversationswithcaroline.blogspot.com Trinity

    She is PERFECT! She doesn’t even look all wonky and purple like a normal newborn! Good job, Heather and Jon!
    Congrats to all of you!
    Can’t wait to hear about the labor!


    Love the beautiful kick-ass name…
    And I bet she will grow up just like her name :)

  • Nicole

    Shit. I named my daughter Marlowe when she was born last year thinking that there wouldn’t be 14 of them in her kindergarten class….. now I guess I’m left to sit back and wait for it to pop up as the number one name of 2009.

    But she is cute. And the name DOES rock.

  • Deborah

    Welcome Marlo! Heather and Jon, you make beautiful babies. Congrats to big sis Leta! Get some rest and enjoy!!

  • Kathleen

    She is stunningly beautiful. Congratulations to all of you.

    So precious. I’m almost jealous. Wait. No. I’m not really… Those early days are rough!

    I LOVE having two girls. Girls kick ass.

  • http://www.truestoryofwhatwas.wordpress.com Jenn

    Oh those eyes – she’s beautiful! Congrats!

  • Lizzy

    She’s a keeper.

    Heather, your Butternut Boo (love that!) is simply beautiful.

    Hope you post a pic or two of her picketing and lobbying Congress. I enjoy the screaming child pictures almost as much as the precious sleeping baby pictures – it puts both into such vivid perspective.

    Congratulations on a healthy baby girl!
