{Meet Charlie} Our Newest Family Member!

I know you’ve been awaiting the arrival of Sawyer and you saw the title and wondered to yourself who the heck Charlie is. Did we change our mind on the name? Did he come too soon? What’s going on?

Well, Charlie isn’t the baby boy we’re expecting next month! He’s the puppy we brought home yesterday!
Meet Charlie!

Isn’t he adorable? He’s a Morkie and he’s three months old. A Morkie is a Maltese & Yorkshire Terrier designer breeded dog. He’s super friendly. He’s well behaved already and loves the boys. He could spend the day in your lap but LOVES his bed. Here are some shots of him I’ve taken in the past 24 hours.

He LOVES his doggie bed!

And this is how he spent the afternoon. Since he was determined to cuddle and lay on my lap I pulled his doggie bed on the couch next to me. So, he thought he’s try to be sweet and get my attention any way he could.

Then he rolls over gives me this look just before jumping up and trying to get kisses.

So am I nuts to agree to a puppy just weeks before we are expecting a baby?

I’ll share more about how we ended up getting a dog, the fun he’s been, and the challenges of training a puppy soon!



  1. He is soo cute! You are brave, a puppy and a newborn!

  2. He is adorable!! What a cute mix (Maltese & Yorkshire)!

    He is ADORABLE, but yes! You are one crazy lady to bring in a puppy just before a baby!! LOL But I imagine it might be real special for them to grow up together <3

  13. Awww. The first week they’re always angels. I can’t wait to see your updates about him in say 2 or 3 weeks. lol Is he as soft as he looks? I don’t think I’ve ever seen that breed before.

  14. Awww, cuteness!!

  15. So funny that you got a puppy after saying that you didn’t want one. He is cute. I can never have anything furry because my lung would close up. I think they are cute though.

  16. What a super cute puppy!! (You aren’t helping my “we don’t need a dog” story!!)

  17. I love those pictures! They must be taken from your new awesome camera.
