Special Delivery

Connor's Aunt Mary and her husband are expecting their first baby next month.  I've never found myself to be a baby person, but I am ridiculously excited to meet this little one for some reason. 

Yes, this Mary, who continues to post this hilarious image on my Facebook wall every October!

As the best horse friend, I feel obligated to give this baby girl every opportunity to be just as into horses as her momma is (sorry, Mary's husband!)  Which is why I raced to get her first horsey gift to her way back in July, when she was negative four months old:



And of course, not only did it have to be a horsey gift, I had to find something to do with jumpers.  It's Mary, after all.  Etsy to the rescue! 

I've half jokingly threatened her husband that he'd better be in front of Mary holding that blanket up in the delivery room so the first thing Annie sees when she opens her eyes is jumping horses.



Fingers crossed for a safe delivery!  Connor has already been volunteered for first pony ride duty 😀

    1. It is definitely awesome. I think that seller ran out of this fabric though because it's no longer available in her Etsy store. There are a lot of horse baby blankets but this was the only jumper one I found!

  3. So I did all these things for my nephew. He's 4 now and told his grandma "I am going to ask Aunt Susan to buy me a pony." His father is just as thrilled as you're imagining :)

    1. Haha! They already have a five year plan to buy a farmette, so I don't feel TOO bad :) That's funny!

  4. I'm not a baby person either but Riding Bestie is also due next month and I'm sooooo excited for the baby to get here so I can smother it with ponies from day one!

    1. Yes! If you don't have a baby of your own to smother with ponies, the next best thing is Riding Bestie's baby!

    1. I completely forgot about that! I read your comment and I had to crawl through my brain for when you met her, but I remember now. That's so funny!

  6. Congrats to Mary. There's so much adorable baby stuff for girls. I keep sending my brother horsey things for his son and it's not as fun as for a girl.

    1. Yeah! It's all cowboy stuff for boys. Maybe that's an under-served market.

    1. Yeah, you really can! Love how it gives us the ability to get in touch with small vendors like that.
