  • She’s so cute!

  • alyssa

    Aww! She is such a beautiful girl!

  • Mir

    Her hair is getting loooong! Totally adorable, as always. 🙂

  • Kev

    Seventh! d’oh!
    Cute pic!

  • Dooce– she’s inherited your hair!

  • Yay! More Leta! We needed a fresh fix, you know. Is she wearing a sweater vest?

  • Oh! She’s SUCH a cutie!

    I LOVE her hair!

  • From yesterday’s picture comments:

    HootyHoo — um, what? Sorry. I’m still desperately in need of caffiene and I can’t wrap my wretched little brain around what you mean…

  • She’s got hand! She’s got hand!!
    Too cute 🙂 What a lovely little beastie you’ve got there!

  • Jackie

    Yeah!! Leta!!

  • Her hair is so long. Don’t you just love to smash your face into it and inhale deeply?

    My son was licking him self once.
    I asked him if he tasted good and he said yes.
    So I asked him what he tasted like and he said chicken.

  • She looks so big! She’s adorable, Heather. But you know that, don’t you?

  • Chloe — it looks like a denim or cordurory vest — I love it!

  • Nice to see I’m not the only one who styles her hair with an eggbeater! 🙂

  • So, I missed putting this on yesterday’s pic comments (I was too slow)

    I think that the posts yesterday were pretty clear about listening to the Day to Day show on NPR… but here’s the info I found:
    *Day to Day*

    Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2005
    – A listing of today’s stories will be posted at approx. 12:00 p.m ET
    – Audio for today’s show will be available at approx. 3:00 p.m. ET
    And as far as transcripts go, it looks like they charge $4.95 for a transcipt and it is available 10pm ET the same day.

    Got it? gooooood.

  • MUST…. EAT….. HAND!!!

    adorable as ever.

  • Oh you poor girl, what a day. But, Leta? She is a doll!

  • I will be taking notes.

    Not really.

  • beachgal

    Awww…she’s so sweet. Love it!

  • RazDreams

    Leta, yummy

    danielle: even better, listen to dooce LIVE!

  • On ice. In France!!!

  • Hands, always a yummy treat!!

    Maybe still has a hint of the Costco card, yummmmm.

  • Razdreams,
    yeah… well, I would if I could, ya know. Which is ironic because the person I work with has NPR on _all the time_. I could almost hum the theme songs/music for some of their programs.
    But today, I think we’ll be in the middle of a project right then and I won’t be able to get away.

  • MLE

    when will dooce be on?

  • Grrrrr

    Well Done Sarah- you earned that first placmement fair and square (darn my internet speed and the refresh button getting jammed at precisely the wrong moment!grrr)

    ahhh but all that frustration and misplaced anger suddenly evaporates when I see how delicious Leta is looking these days. When do I get to be an aupair again?

    Question for Dooce: are you an early childhood ear piercer?

  • SEK

    mmmm…tasty fingers

  • She’s giving herself the old saliva manicure. Good for the cuticles.

  • wow, look at all that hair

  • zzzz

    what does this comment mean? it would make more sense to me to write, “FIRST!!!”
    maybe i just don’t understand.

  • Aww I love it now that her hair is so long. And my Mom dressed me in sweater vests and jumpers and it didn’t affect me permanently. Mathcing outfits on babies is cute, stop when she hit puberty.

  • cute! we also have “feet, yummy” and “important paper mommy is holding…yummy.”

  • I still can’t get over the phrase “cum-soaked barn sluts.”

  • She is such a cutie, and looks so much like Jon in that picture.

    My second daughter was a thumb-sucker, and I got so tired of people saying, “Is that good?” to her, that I finally started making a habit of replying to them, “If you were as sweet as she is, you’d have your hand in your mouth, too!”

  • Dreamer

    …and surely Dooce will realise her obligations to her ever-growing fan base and record her fifteen minutes of NPR fame and post the WAV file or at least a link, right here on her website (HINT, fingers crossed)…come on people, Heather B Armstrong doesnt mess around!!

  • I think her hand is actually putting out an electrical charge which is making her hair stand up. Maybe Leta will be appearing in Xmen 3…

  • Hands are yummy!

    Leta’s hair is adorable! She is a beautiful child!!

  • Click on me later today so we can all hear the consekences of babysitters backing out.

  • btw

    …do we know what the B stands for?

    Soon her fame will hit Kylie/Madonna/Prince status and the B wont matter but for now, all the teen mags will want to know every nitty gritty fan-dom detail..

    “You’re soaking in it”

  • Joy from “The View” said don’t spit in the air because it will come back in your face. Oh such a wise a word.

  • red

    look at all that hair! i cannot believe she’s almost a year old. my, how time flies.

  • e

    that face she’s making looks as though she feels she got “caught” eating her hand – lol

  • Circus Kelli,
    lol! Madge….

  • PWT

    Someday I wanna own a trailer park all my own.

  • Leta: “I know I put that Boobah doll in here somewhere…”

  • Cheryl

    I say if hand keeps mouth happy then give her more hands!!!

    Happy Birthday to me!!

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.
