Swings and Car Seats, Oh My!

We just installed the car seat base the fake baby is in! Oreo was a little nervous/excited around the carrier-another new gadget for her to get used to. We will have to practice walking around with the fake baby in there. 

We have also been practicing putting the baby in the swing and having the music and motion going. The first time we tried it Oreo could care less, and the second time she checked it out then relaxed. We need to continue practicing. Next up-putting the dog gates up in the house! 

Baby hat I made!

So the nursery is almost done and I’m in my third trimester. Oreo has gotten bored of the baby doll and isn’t bothered by the baby crying I play on my phone. We’ve been busy putting lots of things together for baby ! 

Last night we finished the swing and now we only have to put together the stroller and car seat. Time certainly has flown and there’s still more to do and always more ways to prepare. 

I bought a 5 pack of plastic small containers at the dollar store for dog treats. In each room I’ve placed a container of treats in case they are needed to praise or distract the dog. 

Is Oreo going to be okay with visitors? No, that’s why I made a sign for the door that states that we have a barking dog and a sleeping baby-please don’t knock. If we are expecting you-text or call. If not please call! 

We plan on utilizing the fenced in back yard and my parents house (up the steeet). However, we aren’t too worried as Oreo gets along with my close family. I do want to make sure and watch out for signs of being overly protective of the baby.

We still need to put up the dog gates in the house and get her used to baby smells. I need to open all those diaper cream and other fun smells for her to get used to! Should be interesting but we are doing our best to prepare her!
