the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Our Little Frog Baby


Leta Elise Armstrong
7lbs. 10 oz.
20 inches long
born at 3:59 a.m., 02/03/04

She has gigantic feet she got from her mama, otherwise she looks exactly like her father.

Some women say that their babies look like opossum, gerbil or other type of lovable rodent. Ours looks like a frog.

She is named after a great-aunt who died so young that she never got a chance at life. Already, Leta has had a pretty remarkable life full of poopy diapers and several successful attempts at feeding at The Trough of Mama.

You may call her Leta, Leta Dorito or Super Pooper.

Thank you everyone for your kind wishes. She’s finally here!

That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
