Well, folks, I did it. I birthed a tiny human, on Kentucky cross country day no less. Naturally, he is named in honor of the 2019 U.S. Five-Star Eventing National Champion Tsetserleg. Don’t worry: for spelling purposes, Tsetserleg is just on the birth certificate and he’ll go by the less exotic stable name “Thomas.”
(I kid, I kid. Thomas is a family name that we’d already decided on, but we ARE going to claim credit for his birth as an omen of Boyd’s imminent victory.)
Between reading EN in between contractions …
… and some sleepless newborn nights made way more tolerable by the Badminton live stream …
… Baby Thomas’ life is off to a very #EventerProblems sort of start. The next step is a field trip to the barn, which I feel confident we’ll take in stride. Especially with these #EventerProblems babies as our inspiration. Thanks to our readers who posted these photos in response to part 1 — baby goals, indeed!
