Baby! (and Barn visits)

Well she's here! Miss Cayla James - and in her two weeks in this world we've naturally already been to the barn multiple times.  In fact, at her two day check up when asked if we "had any questions" I got slight eye roll from The Boy when I inquired as to when it was appropriate for babies to visit barns....

Fresh out of the oven!

Thankfully our pediatrician (who's kid rides the Junior Hunters...) said that we were ok to take the little peanut to the barn whenever we wanted.  

So we did.  

Prair got the first visit last week, and we've since been to see Gus as well.  I'm not sure Baby has actually been awake when we've been visiting the ponies, but I'm sure her happy snoozing is a good sign too.  Prair was very intrigued by the baby seat and snuffled softly at Cayla, happy  to keep her muzzle resting nicely on the seat.... whereas Gus thought the stroller was perhaps some sort of dangerous monster, or at the very least competition for treats, so he remained a bit more suspicious of the whole bundle.  

Sweet Mare
So far we're having way too much fun with her, and she's been making it easy for us.  She's giving us 4-5 hour sleeps at night and really only fusses if she' starving or needs clean pants (takes after her mother...).  Her delivery was also much more pleasant than I was expecting, and I'm thinking I will be ready to throw a leg over Mr Gus later this week  Even if we don't accomplish much, I'm ready to get back on a horse already!

But otherwise, we are enjoying our time at home, lots of walks in the park and a good excuse to keep The Boy away from long hours at work.

So fun!

More on Gus and Prair shortly, they both have updates of their own to share, but for now a couple more Baby Pics for the Baby-Curious

New Family!
