    They sure do look alike! They have the same eyes!

    I am so happy for you all that Leta’s MRI went well and that she is fine! Continued good health to all of you!

    My heart just melted at all that CUTENESS. There’s just nothing more precious than a father and daughter together.

    Goddamn, you have a beautiful family, Heather. Leta has the beginnings of Moveable Type hair, I think…

    I’m so glad everything went well yesterday. *hugs* to all of you.

    awww…that’s so precious.

    there are no photos of me and my father, since he didn’t want me. leta is a lucky little lady to have a daddy who loves her and cherishes her.

    you guys are the best 🙂

    I think Leta is cuter than Jon, sorry. Nice shot, I’d frame it and put it on the wall but then you’d think I was the stalker.

  • alibean

    2004/09/15 at 6:41 am

    Your Leta is full of baby cute-ness- those cheeks! that hair! those little fingers full of wiggles!

    Jon is full of the hottness!

    Heather is one lucky momma!

    it’s hard to picture that cute little face screaming for hours on end. she’s adorable!

    (maybe someday we’ll see an action shot of She Who Screams All Day and All Night? complete with cowbell!)

    Love your website, But girl if it ever looses it’s umph~ Try photography as a husband and wife team. Some of the best candids I have ever seen have been on this website.

    2004/09/15 at 7:12 am

    EEK! Are you SURE she wouldn’t be interested in a Theodore look-alike? You could have Chipmunk grandbabies!
    ……that look like Jon.

    Seriously…that is a beautiful picture.

  • jen

    2004/09/15 at 7:13 am

    Oh, lordy.

    Leta is the cutest cute that ever cuted, no doubt about that. But DAY-UM, Jon is hot. I just wanna say that you are extremely lucky to wake up next to him (not that you didn’t already know that — and not that you’re not the total hotness yourself).

    I’ll bet Jon loves reading all these “OMG your husband is the hottest!!!11” posts. 😀

    Oh my goodness! How beautiful is this picture? You have the most beautiful husband and daughter! And that camera? Totally need to get me one of those. No, my son does not need to attend college because I need a Nikon D70!

  • Angellivia

    2004/09/15 at 7:38 am

    Look at her hair! The way it sticks up cute and staticky (ok, I know that’s not a word)! She’s adorable, and she looks so much like her Daddy!

    ok, no *way* those 2 creatures are related. i’ll brook no debate in this argument.

    cant wait till you can twirl that hair up into pigtails, heather. wouldnt mind seeing Leta in some, too.


  • Wendy

    2004/09/15 at 8:08 am

    Were you even in the same room when Leta was conceived?

    That’s a great pic, your family is beautiful!

  • Kate

    2004/09/15 at 8:10 am

    Everyone else has mentioned how good looking your family is, so I won’t, Jon and Leta will be impossible to live with.

    What I want to know is when did Jon shave the beard?

    When they had to put tubes into my daughter’s ears at 18 months they gave her that same sedative. I concur — the funniest thing EVER is a “drunk” baby.

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