meet Toby

I’m taking a quick break from puppy-proofing my house to introduce you to Toby.

Our sweet new boy.

We don’t actually bring him home until Sunday the 31st…it is SO hard to wait!!
Of course, not having him home yet doesn’t prevent me from having lots of pictures. We have paid him a few visits already, and he just keeps getting cuter & cuter!!

He is EVERYTHING we have been praying for.

And incidentally (or not), Toby is a Hebrew name that means “The Lord Is Good”.


  1. Oh my what a sweet face! i want to squeeze him!
    What a great addition to your adorable family! I can't wait to hear more and see more precious pics!

  2. Ahhhh, he's so cute! And your daughter is looking more and more grown-up! Slow down!!!

  3. HE IS ADORABLE!!! We've been toying with the idea of getting a puppy for our 5 year old and that photo might have swayed me to get one!

  4. Oh MY!!!! What a face! melt my heart!

  5. Toby is SO cute!!!

    I can't wait for more pictures, he looks so relaxed in your daughter's arms :)

    In Christ,

  6. Hi,
    Just found your blog, and though this comment is "out of order", I wanted to tell you that God has had me leave my career in the last year as well for "something better" that He is birthing. I've had many, many people speak confirmation of His work over me--what a blessing! Anyway, it is neat to see Him doing something similar in someone else. Praying you're blessed.

  7. Oh, so adorable!! Lots of work, but so much fun!You will have to train him with a bell~ it works great! We have a little jingle bell attached to a string. It hangs on a nail right next to our back door. When our dog needs to "go", he just rings the bell! {Occasionally the bell gets removed for a time out if he gets "bell happy" :)}

  8. Oh he is just the sweetest little thing. I hope you are enjoying him!!! Please post more pictures! :)
