A New Tradition (And more Kennedy Cuteness)

Last year for Mother's Day, Marlon and I took our moms for lunch at the hotel where we were getting married at, just a week later.  Tomorrow, we will go back to the very same hotel, a week before we celebrate our one year anniversary.  I remember sitting on the patio saying, maybe next year at this time we'll have a baby on the way.  Instead, here I am celebrating my first Mother's Day, and I couldn't be happier.

My Mom and I - Mother's Day 2010

Today I was watching Kennedy stare at her new "friend" on her car seat.  She was so excited by it.  She had the biggest smile on her face and was watching her pink elephant so intently.  It made me so happy to see how much she liked her new toy.  That's what life is about now.  That's what makes me the happiest.  Seeing my baby girl smile.  Seeing her face light up with excitement.  Seeing her snuggle with daddy.  And today, she made me especially proud when she stole daddy's Visa card off the desk!  She's learning from mommy already.

Afternoon snuggles with Daddy!

Come on Mommy, let's go to the mall....I got Daddy's Visa card!


  1. Best update yet!! I remember your thinking "wow, maybe we'll have a baby in a year or so"... and just look at you guys now! So happy for your wonderful new family - it's the culmination of a lifetime spent knowing just who you were & what you wanted! "Mom" is just what you've always wanted to be - couldn't be more thrilled for you! Happy 1st Mother's Day!!
