Lovin' Lulu with a Bark Box!

As you all may or may not realize, Lulu is a huge part of our family.  She is our first child, our little fur baby.  She has been with us for four years now and is a delight in our day.  One of my favorite parts of the afternoon is seeing her little head pop up over the side of the couch and hearing her tail flapping against the pile of pillows she has perched herself on.  
Benjamin and I know that having a Winston around is going to rock her little world, so we are taking proactive steps to start getting her acclimated to his things and to let her know that she is still precious to us.  We have set up the highchair and have moved it around the kitchen and dining room so that she is used it something rolling around after her.  We have been playing the sounds the little musical things and thankfully, she hasn't been bothered much by them.   One suggestion we have not yet done, but will be doing is to set up something in the crib that makes crying baby sounds.  
Our philosophy right now is that one of us will have a Winston and one of us will have a Lulu.  We know that we'll still have the evenings to love on her and we're counting on her adoring little Winston as much as she adores us!

Another thing I've done in an effort to make her feel special during the first few months is subscribe her to Bark Box.  Each month she will receive a box full of goodies especially for her!  I just love surprises and this is a fabulous way to get new things {toys! treats!} and enjoy a surprise!  And because I heart companies that give back, Bark Box also donates 10% of it's revenue to pet shelters.  If you'd think it's something you'd like to try out, click on this link and receive a discount on your first subscription.  Lulu's first box arrives in September, so count on a review of how she liked it and what it contained!  Also, Groupon is currently offering a discount on the 3-month subscription via here
Some may call us a little nuts for how much we love our Lubaby and the crazy things we do for her... but we're okay with that!

  1. Something else you can do, that I did to get my fur baby acclimated to baby before he arrived home from the hospital, but let her know he was coming, was sent my parents home with a hospital blanket that Cash had been wrapped in that Zoe could sniff and snuggle with. That way she knew his smell before she actually met him. When Cash came home, she jumped in my lap (with Cash) and immediately rolled over on her back as if submitting to him. She has been so sweet to him ever since. :) I'd say it was a success.


Comments are so fun! I love reading them all and respond to each one by email!
