Of Derby, Mother's Day, and May

The school year is winding down and the days fly by.  In fact, today Miss KB is 6 months old! I cannot believe how much my life has changed since her arrival.  Not to mention she has grown quite a bit.

Here in the bluegrass state, the K.entucky D.erby is on par with the Super Bowl.  People around here have parties to celebrate the "most exciting 2 minutes in sports."  We didn't have a party, but KB got into the various Derb.y traditions:

Donning a hat (thank you, Auntie Beth!). Sorry for the blurry picture.

KB spending her first Mother's Day with me outside the womb.

I know it sounds cliche-ish, but after all the painful years of longing, this day was much sweeter.  Although I must admit, the idea of trying to raise this child and keep her from getting too warped by the world seems like a scary task.  KB and I always pray for all IF sisters out there still waiting. She loves her blogger aunties!

I love pudgy baby cheeks. ) She's a beauty. My Kathleen Elizabeth is wearing a dress very similar to the one in the last picture today. In fact, it's the exact same dress in blue. It looks adorable on KB.

What beautiful reflections. Let us all remember our spiritual mothers especially those waiting for children of their own.

I love the hat! What a cutie! Only 4 more weeks!
