Flashback : Baby & Tyrants

Flashback time!

When the little human tyrant was younger, I didn't blog regularly. Which is a shame, because there were so many things better remembered if written down. The whole point of blogging about the tyrants is to capture memories for later years. But no worries, it's not too late!

There are numerous photos of the human tyrant rolling about with the furry ones now, but when he was a little baby we kept them separate as much as possible. The tyrants, no matter how well behaved, are still dogs with big teeth and claws, and the baby is still a helpless little human.

We had a tyrant-free playroom for the baby to learn to crawl and roll around in safety. In the living room the baby was always in his playpen, playing in his safety zone while the tyrants lazed about on the floor.

When we felt the baby was ready (and the tyrants too! they too needed time to adjust to the little human) we gradually let them be together in the same area. These pictures are from the first time we let them 'chill' together on the floor in the living room. The human is about 7 months old at this time, just learning to crawl.

Togo is scared of the toddler!

Those are some good guidelines! My pawrents have been very careful with my baby sister and me together so far. And, don't tell, but I'm a little scared of her, too! She kicks HARD!!!

I can see Togo was scared!
It is not easy to be face to face with a little one for the first time, right?
Thanks for sharing those adorable pictures!
Kisses and hugs
