Bonding Moment

Other members of the family are bonding with the new baby too.  Baxter, their dog who has graced these pages before, does not quite know what to make of this being who is taking the parent's attention. We hope it all works out.

This is a wonderful moment, and I know for sure that Baxter and your granddaughter will be best friends....
Mary MacADNski: That is the hope, Astrid. He is quite attached to the mother and we hope he won't be too jealous.

Providing doggy isn't isolated & gets jealous he'll soon adapt
Mary MacADNski: They've done a good job with preparing the dog and introducing him to the babies blankets and clothing (smells) before introducing him to her in person.
I had a look at yesterday's picture too. Lovely moments. Chris is right about the dog I think.
Mary MacADNski: All is going well so far. It's been a wonderful experience to be a part of.

Mother and child is something special. Grandparents too of course.
Mary MacADNski: This grandparent is lapping it up.
Another gorgeous shot Mary. These dogs are fearson protectors of people or things they love. No harm will come to this child, but I hate to think what would happen to any one who threatens her.
Mary MacADNski: The dog is very protective of my daughter and I'm sure will be the same with the baby.
Wonderful!
Mary MacADNski: It certainly is wonderful. Thanks, Stefania.
If Baxter bonds with the baby at this stage, they should be friends for life.

This poignant portrait of the three of them is wonderful, Mary, simply superb.
Mary MacADNski: He's so attached to my daughter and is a bit jealous at the moment. They prepared him in a very specific way before introducing him to the baby.
Both pictures are a treasure Mary, magic moments smile
Mary MacADNski: Magical is a good word for this whole event.

A very touching image, Mary. Looks like Baxter is asleep? I'm sure that he will have a new best friend in a few years' time.
Mary MacADNski: Baxter is wide awake wondering who this is sleeping in his spot in Mommy's arms.
Cherish this image Mary, it is so intimate and personal, a real joy to look at.
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Brian. I cherish this whole time together.

Mary MacADNski: I'm Grandma. Her Dad's mom is Nana. I think it will take time with Baxter. He is super attached to my daughter and is jealous at the moment.
Charming Image Mary
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Martin.
well congratulations indeed mary to you and all the family especially the new addition, think baxter will look after her
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, derek. Baxter will have to learn to share Mommy.
No doubt Baxter will adjust to the new situation!
Mary MacADNski: I hope is sooner rather than later.
Adorable photo. Hope Baxter behaves himself smile
Mary MacADNski: He's very high strung - certainly not like a lab or regular kind of dog.

Superb shot for the album...it will be gazed at and laughed about for many years...
Mary MacADNski: I hope it works out. Baxter is unpredictable.
That is a perfect moment.
Mary MacADNski: One to remember and voila, the camera makes it possible.
That just looks so good.
Mary MacADNski: Mommy was happy.

I put our baby's pics on http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=716716479&aid=322880 I think you will be able to view them.

Seeing Baxter, reminds me of my son trying to bond his new daughter with their year old ridgeback dog (a huge one). Teaching him to sit nicely next to the pushcart; suddenly the baby cried and with one yelp Mufasa (the dog) was away for half an hour smile

Our grandchild was born on 11 01-2011 - yours must have been close to that as well.
Mary MacADNski: She was born on the 12th - a day apart. With this dog I am a little nervous. The first time she had a soother, the dog jumped toward the baby's face, thinking the baby had a toy. He's a beast!

Oh heck - still suffering from proud grandpa syndrome. Congratulations on becoming a grandma - the baby seems to be in good hands, so you will have a lot of time to enjoy!
Mary MacADNski: I don't live in the same province but near. They are moving further away soon, sadly.
