An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

A true Hamilton

  • Nice one, Miss Marlo!

  • That. Was. AWESOME.

  • Erin

    Was that a fart or a burp? A fart I think – and a cuter farter I’ve never seen!

  • She didn’t know this was her television debut…

    …or did she?


  • Michelle

    Adorable! Can I have her?

  • Looks like her daddy and burps like her mommy. Nice. 😉

  • She’s so cute. Looks like a cross between Leta and a Kewpie doll. With gas.

  • KathyM

    (and who would have thought burping could be so cute?) 🙂

  • Lydia

    Classic. You can’t help but giggle at something like that.

  • dooce

    It was a burp. An after-dinner burp.

  • Excellent!

    Our dog burped last night, at it was the cutest, strangest thing I’d ever seen.

  • She’s so adorable! Even when she’s passing gas ;). And she has such ROUND features – eyes, mouth, CHEEKS!!!

  • Melissa

    My 8 month old only seems to let out a good, hearty belch when a stranger is leaning over him in Walmart, saying, “Aren’t you such a handsome little man.” BUUUURRRRPPPP!!! You can’t help but laugh.

  • Sara

    that is priceless!

  • Champion burper. You have to be proud of that! I especially love your giggle after she does it.

  • Heather

    Stinkin’ awesome. I love when they burp loudly in public. I don’t care who you are, you have to laugh.

  • TwirlyGirlie


  • Erin

    An after dinner burp? So you’re lucky you didn’t get any on ya!

  • Liv

    “gurgle.” So cute!

  • Oh my!

  • Leah

    Obviously she’s just a genius. She saw your baby talk and raised you a huge juicy burp. Well played, Marlo, well played.

  • Nice…veryyyyy nice. Ha!

  • LOVE IT! how they know they are being filmed, and how they DON’T KNOW that their parents will use this against the later in life, i don’t know.

    If you have time, check out OUR version of this.

  • She’s a frog! A very cute and adorable frog!


  • Glad she didn’t let us down…

  • Anonymous

    When mine was tiny, we were at the grocery, in the checkout line. I lived in an area with a huge population of retirees — and they were all cooing over my 4-month-old.

    Just as one of them reached out to touch his hand, he let fly with a fart that made heads turn from 10 feet away.

    She backed away like she’d been scalded, and you could have heard a pin drop.


  • Is it me or is she beginning to look a lot more like Leta?

  • JennKD

    Nice!! So awesome you got that on camera.

  • What a gorgeous gurgle!

    Is she, by any chance, part frog? :o)

  • Noelle

    That may prove that she is your daughter, but her features? proves she is Leta’s sister all the way!!!!

  • Bre

    Those are some bare (looking) legs in that video… and I don’t mean the baby!

  • Aw, What a darling. I speak fluent Hamilton. She was showering you with terms of endearment.

  • Her timing is impeccable! Hahaha…She is beautiful, though, burps and all.

  • Awesome timing!! Oh my goodness, she is a doll. I love those chubby cheeks. 🙂

  • She delivers like a pro! And is it me or do those eyes get bigger daily? Just gorgeous.

  • LOVE it.

    But was that a fart or a burp?

    She is so beautiful. When she’s big enough put her in front of the iMac camera. I have hours of video of Benjamin exploring his own face and expressions.

    Good stuff. Thanks for sharing.

  • Terrible T

    Check it!! She’s already speaking your native tongue!!

    Oh, also UNFOLLOW just because I haven’t said it yet.

  • Had to come back to leave you an example. Check this one out – Benjamin on the harmonica in front of the iMac:


  • Becky

    I agree with an earlier comment that little Miss Marlo is starting to look a bt more like Leta! NOTHING cuter than Marlo’s smile… and a burp to boot! She’s got rock start potential for certain! 🙂

  • Unfollow

    I think I smelled it.

  • Delore

    Thanks for finally showing some leg. Now when can we see your boobs?

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist. 🙂

  • Beth (in NC)

    Just the laugh I needed! Thanks Marlo. 🙂

  • She’s got them Southern Redneck genes…gotta learn how to belch properly EARLY! It’ll come in handy once she’s got a big pile of Memphis ribs and a Pabst Blue Ribbon sittin’ in front of her in a few years!

    LOVE HER!!! Too bad she didn’t do that on the national news. Maybe we can get her back on the 10 millionth hour of the Today Show (since she’s been on before, in utero) and she can perform that new talent for that horrible Kathie Lee…

    Speaking of KL, UNFOLLOW!

  • Oh I just want to bite those cheeks! Now I’ve gone and freaked you out a bit sorry.

  • Gosh.
    She is just thé most adorable baby!
    Mommy must be proud, she shows great promise!

  • Trina

    Yep, I agree with the others, she is looking just like Leta now, but with your chin. Adorable!

  • She is such a cutie! I have a son same age as Marlo so I am always eager to compare them 🙂

  • Heather

    OK, now I am totally conflicted. I have the most hysterical video of my 10 1/2 week old (I found your blog while pregnant with her). Every morning after her breakfast (I’m breastfeeding), I sit her in her swing so I can grab mine and some coffee. Every morning, she swings contentedly and occassionally bats at her toys while she finishes waking up. Every morning, without fail, she lets out a series of the loudest farty poops you have ever heard come out of a little girl. Some friends were visiting one weekend and I warned them about the morning’s musical tribute to my prowess as her food source, and they convinced me I should videotape it. I did, and she performed with perfect timing to my narration. Now, it is taunting me from within my computer with the need to spread it. I’m convinced that she will be interviewing for a position as a CEO one day and they will search the internet for incriminating evidence before they hand over their company, and they will find “the poo chair video”. I showed it to some friends and they begged me to let it go viral. And now, Heather, whom I find very interesting, smart and entertaining, you posted the video of dear Marlo belching or farting. NOW WHAT DO I DO?!?! Ah, well. I’ll flip a coin, I suppose.
    Sending all my best to you and your family.

  • Seriously, with all of your talk of super poop I half expected to see shit running down your legs…. THANK GOD for the burp!

  • LC

    My sister has a daughter who looks exactly like me. She is 2 months old and the only reason we know it’s my sister’s kid is that she farts.all.the.time. I think she and Marlo would get along famously.

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.
