What a cute little red hair girl.

Three things I always think about when I see this precious little girl
1) Beautiful
2) Sunblock
3) A hat

What does Helen’s shirt say? Anyone know?

@Jen: It says “world peace” in Chinese characters.

And where do you buy this shirt? I want one

Wow, Dad must be a redhead – did not know that. She’s got so big.

She’s such a cutie. She always reminds me of Julianne Moore’s daughter — I guess because of the red hair. Would love to see a side by side pic though of Makena’lei and Liv.

I just had a baby girl and named her Makenna’lea (Muh-kenna-lee) and I got the name kind of from Helen’s daughter. I have no idea how she pronounces Makena’lei. Anyone know?

CC on

I think she pronounces it Mah-ke-na-Lay

Chats up – This phrase is used when trying to “chat up” (pick up) a member of the opposite sex — flirting in other words. I have to laugh when you use this phrase in this context! I think you might be using it incorrectly.

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
