    ummm…part-timer – THAT WAS THE BEATLES.

    I love John Irving as much as the next gal, but come on – When I’m Sixty Four from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band…

    I, for one, love the fu man chu quality of her hairstyle, heather. It looks as if she’s about to assist in forging a Hattori Hanzo sword.

    Ooh, blue skies…I vaguely remember them (it’s winter here in England, ’nuff said)

    I LOVE her pink fleece, it’s so cute! Goes well with her gorgeous pigtails!

    Love the pigtails!

    Totally beats those stupid elastic bows that some people put on their baby.

    She’s gorgeous. The forehead is gorgeous. The pigtails… I could go on and on. Aww, Leta.

    Oh. My. Gosh. Honestly. The little pigtails on precious little Leta are making my ovaries do back handsprings. Ahhhh!

    Dazed & Confused AND Bucky Four Eyes – Your comments RAWK! whoville and TMBG (boy, TMBG) in the same comments thread, my day is truly made.

    That is hands-down my favorite Leta picture! It reminds me of The World According to Garp…

    …when I get older
    losing my hair
    many years from now….

    ….will you still need me
    will you still feed me
    when I’m sixyy-four?

    I have THE FOREHEAD. And you have resurrected painful, painful memories of some teasing I received in Junior High because of it. I must go cry now.

    Oh yes, and Leta and her three, count ’em, THREE pigtails are abso-freakin’-lutely adorable.

    Is it me or is this website slower than a blind man walking through a cactus garden today? Were there technical difficulties? Is this only a test of the emergency doocecast system?

    looks like a kung fu hair style to go with her super cool kung fu flying move….

    great picture – love the sky…

    Oh, and I love her forehead. Although I have a decent forehead so of course I would think that is fantastic.

  • Jayseaka

    2005/02/15 at 6:05 am

    haha, awesome. she looks so wise..i cant tell if its because of the hair or the forehead 🙂

  • TulsaOkie

    She is adorable in pink BTW!

    Sooooo cute. Those pigtails rock the Casbah. When I do that hoist up thing to babies/toddlers, though, they always drool down on me. Not as picture perfect as what you’ve got goin’ on there. 🙂

    Awwww! The cuteness! It is too much. And the pigtails, sooo Pebbles.

    Dazed! So funny. It is totally Cindy Lou Who. I also want to know, doesn’t that hurt? I’m getting a headache just looking at all of that tightly bound baby fuzz.

    i guess there are exceptions to the high forehead = intelligence rule, cause my sis who we call ‘Frente Wa-Wa’ (loosely translated as Front of a Bus) is dumb as a pail of hammers.

  • Courtney

    2005/02/15 at 6:03 am

    There’s something not quite real about the background, like it was digitally added later. What a great picture!

  • honey bunny

    2005/02/15 at 6:03 am

    seriously, put that photo on a greeting card. they would sell like crazy! i know i’d buy one! 🙂

    If high foreheads are a sign of intelligence, I must be getting smarter every day.

    So THAT’S where the pink teletubby went.

    Just kidding. Your chawin’ redneck baby is gorgeous. And you are mean for doing that to her hair. It is, however, your right after all the pregnancy and labor and PPD and all.

  • annabelle

    2005/02/15 at 6:01 am

    My mother also told me that a high forehead is a sign of intelligence, which sometimes made me feel better about the plane state between my eyebrows and hairline.

    *AP Wire (Salt Lake City)* – Cindy Lou Who (Who seems to be no more than two at this writing) was seen earlier today levitating over Salt Lake City, miles away from her Whoville home. When questioned by the FAA, Ms. Who cryptically announced “Leoddely odddely ooooh” and promptly spat a piece of carrot into the chimney of a home in Burlington Addition East.
