During the birth, my friend Rachel took care of the dogs…and then once the moms were back home, they stayed with my MIL.
But when it was time to come home, we wanted them to be there to meet their sister.
They are doing SO GOOD with her.
They have been interested, but gentle. Pippin loves getting close and sniffing her.
And they HATE when she cries. Sorry guys. Lots more where that came from.
Here is the moment we put her carrier in the floor and they saw her for the first time.
We let them sniff around…
And our night time rocking sessions are not alone. Pippin always follows me around with her. The protector.
The first time we put her in the cosleeper, Mikey slept in between her and me!
For the most part, we aren’t letting them in bed at night, just at nap time (they used to sleep on our bed) just because I don’t want to have to dodge them and Tyler when I get up.
But I see lots of playing in their future once she gets a little bigger!
