Maybe I'll look petite if I crunch up real small

CUTE! This age is the funniest. They're like poseable action figures. We took a similar photo--Jade all propped up in the middle of the couch. Then, she started to lean...and, ever so slowly, a centimeter at a time, she fell over on her side like a little tree in the forest. Still with the same slightly stunned baby expression. We howled.

ROFL! Thanks for the memories! We too tried to prop our babies up straight just to snap a picture or two, It's just that giant head ("HEED! Like an orange on a stick!") - it's hysterical.

Your daughter is beautiful, and I hope for her that she never feels a need to be petite. Well, we all go through that a little, age 12-14, but then we go back to pride in our height. May she be proud. You sure should be.

Okay, don't project your feelings onto the child. It looks like she's just "chillin'", mom! :):)

Aw, she's so scrunchy and cute - and the yellow duckie pattern against the yellow chair, too! So cute!

I meant to say something earlier (but forgot - I read you on the bloglines usually) but congrats. You are all so lucky to have one another. And I felt weird chiming in earlier, but I decided against saying anything one way or another about any of your worries because you know what? You will find your OWN way to be a parent and a mom - this is exactly as how it should be, too. How you discover the that new layer of life is entirely your own and no one else's. While it may touch upon similiar experiences and feelings to those of other parents, it will always be something you and she earned on your own. Your relationship and learning from each other (and I know it sounds cornball, but it's true I swear) will be something that you exclusively create between the two of you. And that's awesome. (I don't mean awesome as "totally rad, dude," thought that is true, too, but as actually awe-some.) It's just that right now? The deliberate act of creating that relationship is mostly on you at the moment - and that's pretty awesome, too.

Also, before I forget, man oh man, you linked to freaking Lynda Barry. Did I ever mention that I have a framed comic of hers hanging in my bedroom? Right over a desk. I love her wild streak of creativity.
