 It's Mother's Day.

And, [heavy sigh] I'm a Mommy.


Last year at this time I was just about 6 weeks away from Lila's arrival and I remember sitting here at my computer typing a post and thinking, "Next year, Kylee - that baby's going to be here. Your baby. That sweet little Cupcake you've been waiting for? She's going to be here."

And she's here.

And I love her more than I could ever explain.

Sweet baby Lila, I'm so glad I'm your Mommy. Thank you for being my daughter.


Happy Mother's Day to ALL of you out there! Especially those of you who are celebrating your first Mom's Day, too. :)


Please note that the photos were done by Sarah Smith of Kent Smith Designs. I wrote about her in this post here. She's located in Ohio. Unfortunately, the sand is located in Cabo. Come on down, we have a guest room.


  1. Happy Mother's Day, Kylee! Loved the pictures!

  2. Oh my, those pictures are amazing. That middle one is a 'blow up huge and cherish forever' one. Love it!

    Happy 1st Mother's Day!

  3. oh my gosh, best pictures in the world. And I think my little peanut just said her first words "I think we should go to Cabo and get pictures taken like that one." We'll be there soon.... gotta go with a newborn's wishes, you know? :)
