Teapot, Dissconnect phone, dog, calm baby. Reason
The baby might be crying because of the noice, take away teapot can remove the noice, disconnect phone because it's more important the baby crying and the ringing could upset her/him, the dog is easily controlable to stop what is doing and then calm the baby without noises that could bother.

Oops, the admin pressed "delete".
I chose 1st to turn off the kettle, because it looked to me like a real danger, it could explode.

I agree with #1, what I also chose. As next I would calm down the dog.

The last thing I would do is the phone, if it's really important, they will call again!!

No. The phone is the most time sensitive issue and therefore should be addressed first. The "if it's important they'll call back" mentality is flawed logic. Why? You have no certain way of knowing what it is. That missed call could be a missed one-time opportunity, which means they wouldn't call back. Besides that, they may assume you're not home because you didn't answer which would eliminate any reason for them to call back, even if it's a life or death matter. Everything else can be sorted out once the phone is picked up. That is if you're capable of multitasking and thinking on different tracks at once. Those who have a one track mind will chose a different option.

The most efficient method of dealing with this situation is pick up the phone, remove the kettle while you're talking to increase the peace and quiet, get rid of the dog with your free hand and then use said free hand to pick up the babby to comfort it. Perfectly balanced, as everything should be.

Actions in order: Answer the phone, because that's the most time sensitive issue. While I'm talking, I'd take the kettle off to bring a bit more peace to the situation, backhand the dog with my free hand and then pick up the babby to quiet it down.
