So I was rocking Lila the other day...

The Cupcake is not big on being rocked for too long. She's busy. She's got things to do. (Wonder where she gets that from...) So when I get an opportunity to just sit and be still with her, I jump on it.

This particular rocking I'm speaking of was at around 11 p.m. or so and she was just precious.
She was smiling, smiling and smiling while I fed her.
(In the glow of the Lava lamp she's even cuter.)
She was so snuggly and sweet.

Anywho, I was just chatting with Lila. I was telling her how much I loved her and how pleased I was that she was mine. I was telling her how absolutely wanted she was and how she'll never have to doubt how loved she is by her Daddy and I.

Then I thought...

"Hmmm.... I betcha Shirley (my Mom) had this same conversation with me some 3o years ago..."


I can't wait for Lila to have that experience with my grandbaby.

Motherhood is cool.


  1. I would like to know your mom's perspective on what it's like for HER to see Lila.

  2. What a lovely moment, and what a lovely thought. :)

  3. I am smiling while reading this.

    What a special moment to share. Lila is one lucky girl to have an amazing mom such as yourself. And how special to realize something coming full circle :)

  4. How wonderful! I've thought this very same thing...I have the rocking chair my mom rocked me in when I was a baby. I think about my mom everytime I rock Abbey. Luckily Abbey let's me snuggle her...Evan never really did (until now, thankfully he is now a snuggler).

    I agree, motherhood is the best thing in the whole world. Lila is so lucky to have you!
