To dress up your dogs in various holiday head wear and include them in your holiday cards. These are our original babies which we haven’t forgotten and of course, neither have they.
I don’t think I ever posted this vid of my dog Meatball. It pretty much solved the mystery of which dog was tearing paper for the past 2 years when we left the house, but we actually thought it was Frisco the whole time. As you can see, he was reprimanded. In spite of my harsh scolding, paper is still torn around the house on a fairly regular basis.
For Harper’s frist Halloween her gram got her the requisite pumpkin costume that all babies must wear because, let’s face it, it only looks good on them. Well, them and Meatball. He wanted a costume to match his sister.
Please tell me we aren’t the only ones to dress our dog up for Halloween?
Family photo- well minus Frisco, Meatball was more content as a pumpkin so Frisco was in the house totally relieved. Now I have a whole year to plan out a family theme so we can all to get dressed up together!
What took me so long to put Meatball in the baby carrier? After 4 1/2 months, I couldn’t resist! I wouldn’t say he hated it, but he probably wouldn’t make it his regular form of transportation.
He’ll probably stick to his beloved ride in the bottom of the stroller. What’s not to love about that?
Whoever said once you have a baby your dogs become dogs hasn’t been to our house.
Anyway- if you just use your baby carrier for ventures out of the house, you’re missing out on a calmer, happier baby. Babywearing has been done since the beginning of time but now we have carriers and slings (THIS is the sling we have) that make it so easy to relax the baby and keep while keeping your hands free to do whatever at the same time. She has never cried in our carrier (Ergobaby organic) which I hear is common. It’s like a swaddle, keeping them close to you and following the natural rhythms of your movement that they’re so familiar with from pregnancy. Give it a try- especially if your baby (or dog..) is fussy.
