  • Heather R

    Clearly, I’m not alone in saying that Leta is totally on the top three reasons why people visit your site. Therefore: do not apologize for photographic cuteness! We all want more.

  • GAP?

    *Just say no to GAP.*

    Geezus, people. Let the kid be a kid.

  • Don’t worry: We all love Leta here.

    And did you know that just reading a name over and over again will make you feel like you know someone? I now feel like I am Carol’s neighbor.

  • Leta’s all like “I’m just hanging wit my peeps.”

  • Damn! I just spontaneously ovulated looking at that picture. Now, Dooce. I wasn’t meant to reproduce. Tell that baby to stop bein’ so damn cute!

  • jia

    aww….. just look at those beyootiful eyes… *tear*

  • Sue From Ohio

    ‘Stinky Feet Eliminated’….neat google ad hehee

  • sam

    in love with leta is a good thing.

    she’s looking so happy and cute, how could you not fall in love?!
    – those eyelashes and that hair!

    p.s. i don’t get the first post obsession. i just don’t. i’ve tried – but it’s just weird.

  • jm

    I love Leta deeply. I also feel my ovaries being pounded with the cute hammer…ow! OOOWWWWW!

    And I find it very amusing that your Girl’s Night post generated a Google Ad for “Stinkyfeet”. Now, that is something I just haven’t seen before.

  • Beautiful as always.

  • A Fan~Jinny

    It is so strange to feel like you know a family when you have never actually meet them.

    It is wonderful to see her growing up. She is beautiful.

  • robo

    I thought you would probably really enjoy this one after hearing your friends constipation story :

  • Bran

    her fingers are chubby and i want to eat them.

  • Ellen

    Hours of entertainment for you:

  • Mike

    I’m glad to see that Leta had BOTH of her socks and some shoes on today! I saw the whole Heather, Jon, Leta and Chuck show walking by Starbucks today. A great looking family and a surreal internet / real life moment.

  • sab

    The internet LOVES pictures of Leta. Don’t stop posting them.

  • Erica

    You have a beautiful baby. I always enjoy the Leta pictures.

  • I am afraid that if I were to see Dooce, Jon, Leta and Chuck passing my local Starbucks, I would make a complete fool of myself in front of the coolest internet family ever.

  • the niffer

    Sorry Rhinestone Girl. My mistake – you have Fish’s wit and creativity. Are you Mrs. Fish?

  • jessca

    she is adorable, as usual 🙂 I think everyone is a little bit in love.

  • She a cutie! Your just being a proud mama!

  • Jeff

    OOoo, first post. 🙂

    I don’t blame you for wanting to bombard everyone with pictures of your little one. I feel that way about my daughter (who is 13 months old.
    Leta looks so comfortable on the horse, and yet, so cute!

  • Jeff

    Ok, so I didn’t hit “post” in time. Oh vell.

  • That should be she’s a cutie.

  • You should be bombarding us with Leta photos – you are proud and should be! She’s gorgeous! You better watch out when she’s a teen!

  • Desi

    What a cutie!! Reminds me of my 18-month-old neice who now refuses to say anything other than ‘horse’ and wants to ride bareback in the rodeo. Maybe a rocking horse would work for now…I hope.

  • I’m amazed by people who can take a piece of wood and turn it into something beautiful. Leta will treasure that!

  • lol expression is priceless.

    9th!!! and I’m happy!

  • Mir

    Never apologize for Leta photos!! And your stepdad does nice work!

  • She looks tired…did she ride that buckin’ bronc too hard. What a cutie patootie!

    I’ll take photos of Leta ALL the time. At least with Leta (oh and the Dooce Juice) there isn’t much bantering going back and forth…a much more ‘relaxed’ message board…breath in, breath out, s-l-o-w-l-y, and again……

  • Nice try Jeff…maybe next time 😉

  • maggie

    Oh my goodness…that girl is just so adorable. She looks like she’s practicing for her future modeling work–she has that “I’m so pretty yet so blase’ about everything going on around me” look going on.

    Oh, and find yourselves a good piano teacher now, you can’t let those long fingers go to waste!

  • how cute! she looks totally grown, as if she is just hanging out talking to friends. so serious, but adorable at the same time.

  • Let us all pause to reflect on the size and spectacular beauty of that child’s eyes.

  • ” I wanted a REAL pony. Will these grownups ever get it right?”

    HI CAROL!! ( eleventyith mention).

  • milliegrace

    Her right hand is posed as if she is saying, “Well, I do declare this is the best pony evah! Hon, be a doll and fetch Miss Leta a cool drink, will ya? I am simply exhausted from being so cute.”

  • Go, Leta go! I think she will enjoy riding Chuck just as much as that wooden horse, you should try that one too :))

  • dang, another cut photo that i can’t come up with anything witty to say about.

    kinda looks like she’s saying “who, moi?”

  • i meant “cute”… not cut

  • Such a CUTE baby!

  • mama’s girl

    oohhh…first post! and i can’t think of anythang to say…

  • mama’s girl

    dang–i ran a few errands before i came back and hit post…cute baby girl

  • Susie

    Wow, never noticed the killer eyelashes before. No need to apologize; with the gift of Leta came the job of being President for Life of Leta Armstrong’s Fan Club. You’re just doing your job.

  • DM

    She’s quite gorgeous. I’m a little bit in love with your kid. Look, my nephew, he just turned a year old & he is the most beautiful child in the universe (yes, slightly biased) but hey, if the other arranged marriages don’t work out, I’m sure my sister would be thrilled to have Josh marry such a famous baby as your Leta.

  • I think we are all in agreement Dooce. Keep those Leta photos coming! They certainly brighten my day.
    And I agree with Maggie–when not smiling, Leta does tend to have that “I’m so gorgeous and so bored with you all” expression going on!

  • Ride ’em cowboy . . . er, cowgirl! YEEEHAAWWW!

  • This shiznit fo Fish n Dooce

    ~~rhinestone cowgirl~~

    I’ve been walking these streets so long
    Singing da same old song
    I know every crack and leftbehind sock on these dirty sidewalks of Utah
    Where hustle is da name of da game
    And nice girls get washed away like da snow ‘n da rain
    There’s been a load of compromising
    On da road my horizon
    But I’m gonna be where da lights are shining on me

    Like a rhinestone cowgirl
    Riding out on a horse in a star spangled rodeo
    Like a rhinestone cowgirl
    Getting weblog comments ‘n letters from muthas I don’t even know
    And offers coming over da cellphone

    Well I really don’t mind da rain
    And a smile can hide izzall da pain
    But yo’ ass down when yo’ ass riding a train
    That’s taking da long way
    And I dream of da thing I’ll do
    With a subway token ‘n a dollar tucked inside my shoe
    There’s been a load of compromising
    On da road my horizon
    But I’m gonna be where da lights are shining on me

  • Awww, she is such a cutie. She looks so relaxed on that there horsey too.

  • Coco

    My favorite pictures you post are of Leta! That girl is just too adorable!

  • the niffer

    Fish, you rock.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
