Libby gets her pup-pup

Friday night, at 10:00 p.m. daddy and mama embarked upon a 5.5 hour drive to bring home libby's pup-pup. An ice storm moved in right about the same time, and we safely arrived back at home Saturday night around 7:30 p.m. We had planned to spend Friday night in a hotel, so it wasn't THAT bad. But, needless to say, we were glad to get home.

The pictures below are in order from most to least recent. Libby and Barnabas have become good pals. She goes back and forth between completely ignorning him and giggling at his silliness (like scratching his collar area). When she interacts with him she's so gentle and kind. She's had practice with her other favorite doggie, Izzy.

Having Barnabas at home is much like bringing home a baby. Mama is taking him outside every few hours through the night, he can never be out of my sight, and I'm constantly wondering, "does he have to go now? does that mean he needs out?" clearly my biggest concern is my carpet. :) not entirely, but since he's otherwise healthy, my carpet is right up there on the list of concerns.

Enjoy the pics of our babies. It's incredible how much Barns has grown already. You may be able to tell from the pics of him here with libby on down. We have noticed a difference in the 6 days we've had him! Not a good sign for someone who is hoping for a small fully grown doodle! But, with his sweet personality (he loves to cuddle and play with his toys, and doesn't like his shadow when he's trying to eat) and intelligence (he wakes mama up by whining when he has to go outside in the night and he's starting to learn how we feel about some no-no behaviors) we'll keep him nonetheless. Plus, he's our first son!

mama mops the floor and her two little messmakers make quite the audience (libby is wearing her new outfit from aunt sarah - thanks aunt sarah! and, you should know that this morning when she woke up, the first thing libby said was, "sah-sah!" aunt sarah babysat last night and libby was disappointed she wasn't here to get her out of bed. so were daddy and mama. :)

barnabas creeps over to lay on libby's lap, completely on his own. he'd rather cuddle with her than play with his toys. (barnabas is sporting his new leash and harness. the harness is still a bit big for him, but not for long. it's great because it allows him to be buckled into the car! he's already gone on his first outing buckled in safely!)
