Toby’s Eyebrows

Toby has always had Jack Nicholson eyebrows, but recently he’s been taking them to a new level. These photos crack me up. Who needs words? He has a whole repertoire, including give-me-back-my-car eyebrows…

Taxi-spotting eyebrows…

Strawberry-eating eyebrows…

And get-me-out-of-this-friggin-ballpit eyebrows…

It’s a lot of work for one little guy! Toby, I love you:)

  1. This a great post – thanks for publishing it. On a side note does anyone know about the bankers life and casualty . I heard they have good products for life insurance & annuities and they have local agents who help in retirement planning. Any feedback about them is greatly appreciated.

  2. This made my night! Toby is, as always, adorable. What an expressive little dude.

  3. Hilarious! They are pretty animated. :)

  4. lol too cute! my daughter has those same eyebrows. i love how expressive toddlers are with their faces. they really don’t hold anything back.

  5. Toby eyebrows will talk ….. so cool .

  6. Just looked at this post again and the “friggin” was gone in the ballpit caption! That was the funniest part :)

  7. Sooo cute! He must be quite a little gentleman! xoxo

  8. Oh my word… too adorable! He is just precious!


  9. What a precious little guy! I love it when kiddos have expressive faces, especially eyebrows, and Toby clearly takes the emotive eyebrow cake. I think the taxi-spotting variety is my favorite :)

  10. Love! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Precious! He reminds me of Gromit from Wallace & Gromit. He says everything he needs to say with his brow!

  13. What I love about eyebrows language- the expressions. Just adorable :)


  14. Haha. he´s the cutest thing!

  15. Toby is such a cute baby and Im sure he is gonna grow up to be a very handsome man :)
    His eyebrows resemble Shahrukh Khan’s( an actor in India)
    Women are CRAZY about him here!

  16. This totally cracked me up. Getting out of the ball pit is my fave- so funny!

  17. The eyebrows! I also have a little one with eyebrow personality. It was especially hilarious when she was an infant…no hair on her head, all eyebrows.

  18. My son Liam also has lots of funny eye brows (faces) for every occasion. It’s hilarious! I made a poster of all his different facial expressions. Wish I was able to download it here for you to see.

  37. I’ve got an eyebrow kid too! For the longest time he was bald with crazy eyebrows which was extra amusing. I never thought if them as Jack Nicholson eyebrows but my dad does look so much like Jack that I can’t watch the Shining so maybe your onto something!

  44. haha so jealous! i wish mine were that cool. he’s gonna be an actor. so expressive!

  45. GAH! So cute. I love his frustrated brows when he’s crawling out of that ball pit. Priceless!

  46. One day he’s going to give a cute little girl the ‘how you doin”-eyebrows, I’m sure. Tooooo cute, this little dude!

  47. He is such a cutie! My sister always said I had jack nicholson eyebrows & her little girl has them now, too! ; )

    What a cutie! Speaking of Toby– how are his cloud shades holding up? I want to do something similar in my little one’s room, but I wasn’t sure whether I should paint them with latex or acrylic paint… Jenny wrote that she used latex on yours, and I was just wondering if the paint was holding up well or not. Thanks!
