As the time for your new addition arrives, don’t forget the first babies you ever had—the ones with fur and 4-legs. Make sure you have somebody lined up to care for them while you’re in the hospital. And make sure to give them lots of love and patience, as adjusting to a new baby isn’t easy for Fido!
The day before we came home, Bo brought one of J’s blankets home from the hospital and left it out for the animals to get used to his scent. It seemed like a cool little trick, but I’m not sure if it helped or not. It made us feel better though!
Here’s our pooch, Abbie, resting on my very pregnant belly before J was ever born. Dogs know there’s a baby in there, I’m sure of it!
