Introducing a baby to Wrigley was an event I was very nervous about. We had read articles and gotten advice from friends about how to handle the first meeting. After Anderson arrived, JC brought home a receiving blanket she had been swaddled in. He let Wrigley sniff and play with the blanket for awhile to get used to the baby's smell.
Then came the moment of truth: the day we brought home Anderson. We brought her into the house and set her car seat down on the floor. Wrigley was very excited to see us as we had been gone for a few days; however the new little person grabbed his attention. He checked her out for a few seconds, then sniffed her -- and finally decided he was just happy to see JC and I. He went back to wiggling and wanting us to love on him. Since that day he has learned to co-exist with Anderson.

Despite the house ringing with loud, frequent dog barks and baby cries, our fur baby and our new baby are learning to co-exist and love one another.
