Mykelti Brown Padron is marking her first Mother's Day as a mom. 

Mykelti celebrated the special occasion with a trip to the lake with her daughter Avalon and husband Antonio "Tony" Padron, calling the celebration "wonderful." The Sister Wives star, 24, shared several snaps of Avalon playing in the water.

"HAPPY MOTHERS DAY and first Mother's Day to myself! It was wonderful. We went to the lake baby Avalon Asa and @tonychessnut and had carne asada at my MILs house," she wrote.

(Mykelti is the daughter of Sister Wives stars Christine and Kody Brown.)

One of Kody's other wives, Jenelle Brown, commented on the photo of Avalon: "Look at that cute belly !!!😍"

Mykelti welcomed baby Avalon, her first child with Tony, on April 5, a rep for TLC exclusively confirmed to PEOPLE at the time. 

"We are both very happy with our baby and the success of our home delivery. We were excited [sister wife] Robyn [Brown] could join us via Zoom for the whole labor," Tony, 26, told PEOPLE. "My wife's the strongest person I know and it shows." 

"Avalon is gorgeous, enjoyable and full of life," added Mykelti.

A month later, the couple announced that they would soon be parents to a baby girl. 

"The whole pregnancy she's felt like a girl," the then proud mama-to-be told PEOPLE in October. "That's what I really wanted for my first so I'm extremely stoked she's a girl. Already buying clothes."

Avalon is Kody's third grandchild. Daughter Maddie Brown Brush is mom to daughter Evangalynn Kodi, who turns 2 in August, and son Axel James, 3, whom she shares with husband Caleb Brush.
