  • Anonymous

    Awww!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!! (mos def need all those ! marks)

    I’m so relieved for Leta’s sake!

  • Wes

    Two Princesses in one house?

  • Nicole

    Did they say “and there’s the cheeseburger . . . ” like last time?

  • Congratulations!

  • Yay for hand-me-downs!

  • Tracy

    As the mother of three daughters, this is wonderful news. Yes, the drama quotient will exceed your wildest expectations, but so will the joy. Happy that Leta will be able to have a princess-in-training before too long. Might you entertain the thought of dressing Chuck and Coco in something pink to celebrate?!!

  • Kristen


  • Kristen


  • Yay! Another girl! Think this one will look at all like you? It’s nice that looking like Jon isn’t bad at all either. Congrats!

  • Anonymous

    Poor John.

    Another “cheeseburger.” I remember when you debuted the first one. Congratulations!

  • Jamie

    Is that a Hamilton chin I spot in that profile pic? Maybe this one can be YOUR mini-me.

  • Congratulations to the Dooce family…Doocelet the Second will invariably be a wonderful, happy, clever little girl who will grow up with Big Sis Leta to be the rulers of the world.
    Happy news!

  • Anne

    I really do think the name “Aurora” is pretty. What are the chances?! Congratulations!! Leta has an ally now!

  • Anne

    I’m delurking for the first time to say CONGRATS!

  • Ames

    YAY! Another girl! Im so excited for you! Congratulations!

  • Tracy

    Congratulations Armstrongs! There is no better friendship than the one I have with my sister. What a gift for each of your girls; to have a sister!

    …and now, you’ll enjoy Princesses times 2.

    I’m so excited for all of you.

  • monica

    Congratulations! I can only imagine how excited Leta is. I fear that if you found out you were having a boy she might want to send it back. At least now you can avoid that conversation.

  • i’m so excited for you. congratulations!!

    p.s. will you share the name you’ve chosen, or will it be a secret till the end?

  • JennyL

    Congrats! Girls rule.

  • Mo

    Conrats to Leta! And the two of you, course! My five year old just got her life’s wish of a lil’ sister (I gave birth last week)…we’ll see how long it takes for her to regret it.

  • Anonymous

    YEA!!!! A baby sister for Leta! That is so cool for her. She’ll be the best helper and cool playmate for the baby girl. I hope this one likes books and Princesses who die, die, get more deader and die again. 🙂

  • Kellie

    So, so excited for you guys.

  • Erica

    SQUEEEEEEEE! Yay Girl!

    And now maybe, just maybe, she will look just the teeniest, tiniest bit like you instead of her Daddy. My son looks the teeniest tiniest bit like me, as opposed to her older sister who, like Leta, is her Daddy’s clone. I get a kick out of the fact that sometimes, in the right light, after a glass of wine, he looks like me. A little bit. I’m hoping you get the same kick, even though I know you’ll be thrilled regardless.


  • KAS

    Congratulations, Heather! That’s awesome! I’m so happy for you guys. 😀 We get to find out what our’s is next month .. We’re kind of pulling for the “girl parts” personally.
    Can’t wait to see the first official pictures of Princess Aurora in June!

  • Dear Heather, Jon, Leta, Chuck and even Coco –

    Congratulations on the extra dose of estrogen. 🙂 I am elated for all of you. Funny, I have the very same GIRL PARTS! picture of my youngest…


  • YEAH!

  • Now you can start making list of princess names to add to Aurora…Or maybe you want another “L” name. You may have to also think how the two names will go together. Might not want to ever have to say, “These are my daughters, Leta and Lena.”

  • congratulations!!!!

  • Yay! Leta must be thrilled at the idea of teaching her new baby sister how to be a Princess. Lucky for you and Jon there will be no battles over what to name the baby since Leta has already got that part taken care of. Princess Aurora….it has a nice ring to it!

    Congratulations to the three of you! 🙂

  • Amy

    Congratulations! Have you told Chuck yet?

  • Vicki


  • J. Bo

    Congratulations to all at the Blurbodoocery on the impending arrival of princess #2.

    I predict Coco will go TOTALLY around the bend and Chuck will shed his entire coat the first week she’s home.

  • Nicole

    “I will never have to grapple with the decision of whether or not to circumcise another human being.”
    So you’re sticking with 2, then? I always pictured you with 3, for some reason. You need a boy in that mix!!

  • Kristen

    Congratulations! Do you think Leta’s will is so strong that she was able to ensure the baby turned out to be a girl? 😉
    I am so excited for you guys!

  • Jen

    Congratulations! That’s awesome! I know you would have been happy with either sex, but I’m so happy that Leta is getting a little sister!

  • Congratulations! And remember–let Serotonin Re-Uptake Inhibitors be your friend. 😉

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.
