    Wow. Congratulations, Heather. You and Jon must be thrilled … and hopefully Leta is too, despite the name confusion. 😉

    She looks mesmerized by her hands and the camera.

    Awww..I remember those middle of the night times. Only mine was usually screaming. Those were the days.

    Perhaps he now wants a divorce and then what will become of poor Marlo and co? 🙂

  • LB

    2009/06/18 at 11:56 am

    Look at those big thoughts rolling around in her head….like “Dude – why did he just call me Leta….I’m Marlo”.

    She’s lovely!

    Oh, man, that was cruel! I predict a rash of babymaking tonight all over The Online! LOL!

    Seriously, that is classic.

  • Elizabeth_K

    2009/06/18 at 11:57 am

    OH MY GOSH she is gorgeous and perfect and her wee hands sort of moving about are killer … what else was the point of the video? I can’t see anything but her beauty …

  • Jenn

    It gets worse – eventually you’ll have to run through all of the dogs, children and husband names to get it right when reprimanding someone…

  • Valerie W

    2009/06/18 at 11:58 am

    Ohhh she’s so delicious! I want to nibble and nuzzle on her. I love how everything seems in slow motion 🙂 Good stuff, woman, thanks for sharing!

  • Z

    2009/06/18 at 11:58 am

    I assure you, the dog names will be mixed in very soon. I’m forever mocked by my children for this.

  • Rachael

    2009/06/18 at 11:58 am

    aww such a sweetie. I miss those quiet days and having an itty bitty baby. My daughter is 7-1/2 months and is already screaming and trying to get up and run. Congrats to you guys! Babies are such a blessing.

  • Andrea

    2009/06/18 at 11:58 am

    Well hullo little M.I.A… darling fingers.

  • Didi

    2009/06/18 at 11:59 am

    Precious! How is big sister enjoying little Lo?

  • Aisha

    2009/06/18 at 11:59 am

    haha… awww.

    My mom did that from 0-2 years with my youngest brother; she’d run through all the kids names and, occasionally, the dogs names, before getting to the name she was trying to yell. Because usually it was after one of us destroyed something.

  • Court

    2009/06/18 at 11:59 am

    You are all precious.

  • supertiff

    2009/06/18 at 12:00 pm

    the sound of her little gasp at the beginning made my uterus explode.
    i am now dying, and it is all your fault for creating such beautiful children.

  • Katie

    2009/06/18 at 12:00 pm

    I wish I could see this video – stupid firewall at work prevents it. I will certainly be watching this later!

  • SarahThe

    2009/06/18 at 12:01 pm

    Gawd, I forget how little they come.

    2009/06/18 at 12:01 pm

    Oh my gosh, I miss those newborn days! She is beautiful! And yes, I call my daughters by each other’s names often! Don’t sweat it Jon! I want to see video of Leta and Marlo together!

    By the way, her name does kick ass! 🙂

  • Cate

    2009/06/18 at 12:03 pm

    She is so incredibly gorgeous.

    I just call both of mine “kid” – that way I’m never wrong 🙂

  • Chrissy

    2009/06/18 at 12:04 pm

    Oh my gosh – she’s precious! I love her gentle little movements. She’s perfect!

  • Serge

    2009/06/18 at 12:05 pm

    We have a baby born two months ago, but have not shown any photos to anyone. I am afraid of bad eye.
    Your baby is beautiful! congrats!

  • Stephanie

    2009/06/18 at 12:05 pm

    haha! So precious. Welcome to the wonderful world of names. My mom can’t keep me and my sister straight to save her life. And my grandma goes through all of her large family before she lands on the right name.

  • Rachel

    2009/06/18 at 12:05 pm

    my uterus just jumped to my throat

  • Molly

    2009/06/18 at 12:06 pm

    Aw I think the mix-up is cute. Thank you for posting this when I sure as hell know you’re bleary-eyed! She is so friggin gorgeous!!! She really looks a lot like Leta here, too.

  • duffy

    2009/06/18 at 12:06 pm

    wow. i have to admit, when i was watching this, i got all whispy and weak in the shins. you have such an amazing thing there. nice job, armstrongs.

  • Ginger

    2009/06/18 at 12:06 pm

    Awwwww, how sweet!! She is very peaceful.

  • Abby

    2009/06/18 at 12:07 pm

    So sweet…my dad often confused my brother’s name with the dog’s. It happens. 🙂

  • Anonymous

    2009/06/18 at 12:07 pm

    Aw, I had to watch without sound, and it just looked so precious. She looked sleepy and tiny.

  • Summer

    2009/06/18 at 12:07 pm

    oh holy hell that kid is cute!!

  • Anne

    2009/06/18 at 12:08 pm

    haha, so preciously adorable. 🙂 I love the mix up and you’re matter of fact tone of “It’s Marlo”. 🙂

  • Preggy

    2009/06/18 at 12:09 pm

    I am going to have mine in September

  • Amanda Nicole

    2009/06/18 at 12:09 pm

    So so precious. I love the pure wonderment on her face!

    And don’t worry – my mom calls my sister by the dog’s name, and vice versa, ALL THE TIME.

  • Milo

    2009/06/18 at 12:10 pm

    Haha, you will be forever reminded of that, Jon. My father called my sister a different name (related to hers but not my name) when she was born and my mom won’t forget it. My sister doesn’t know, though. Dude, gotta go tell her.

    PS: Marlo is gorgeous but of course we all know that.

  • Beanie

    2009/06/18 at 12:10 pm

    The first of many.

    My husband says his name was Jesus Christ for a while since his mom would go through all 6 of his siblings and finally give up and yell, “Jesus Christ, you know I’m talking to you!”

  • Shelly

    2009/06/18 at 12:22 pm

    She is so sweet.. How is Leta liking her new little sister?

  • ishkadebble

    2009/06/18 at 12:11 pm

    Yup. All of us empty uterus types are clutching our belly wondering if maybe we should have done the deed ourselves. Marlo is lovely! Thanks for sharing, and congratulations to you all.

  • Jennifer

    2009/06/18 at 12:13 pm

    I so wish I had videos of my kids this small…

  • mountainmomma18

    2009/06/18 at 12:14 pm

    Dude I look at stuff like this and only remember the good times with wee ones, how soon we forget that fog of sleep deprivation. This just makes me want another one right now, do I have to go through the whole incubation process?

  • Leslie

    2009/06/18 at 12:14 pm

    Marlo will be using this in her teen years as proof that Dad most certainly DID like Leta best!!

    You Armstrongs sure do make some beautiful babies!

  • Floyd

    2009/06/18 at 12:14 pm

    My goodness – she’s so cute! Look at those long pretty fingers! She’s going to be a pianist.

  • Sarah

    2009/06/18 at 12:14 pm

    Hello! First time commenting, I have been reading you for about 4 years! Just to say congrats, all the best xx

  • Caren

    2009/06/18 at 12:15 pm

    The name confusion is only just beginning! LOL

    Marlo is a bundle of awesomeness!

  • Lisa

    2009/06/18 at 12:16 pm

    She is just perfect! I love her already……and I don’t even know her…….

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.
