I have to admitt that I am overjoyed with the fact that I am raising children in the era of digital cameras. I think we would have spent $300 on film alone in the past week if it weren't for our lovely digital camera. I shudder to think of what new parents did during those few years when the polaroid camera was the big deal, along with its ten dollar box of cartridges....

Here are some latest snapshots of life at casa de phillips:




Surrounded by pink...
Who would have thought I would go so overboard with the pink? However, it compliments the hair nicely I think.

First Bath
(Much better experience than Isaac's first tub time. For some reason, we felt like it was a good idea to bath him in his baby bath tub in the middle of our large, air conditioned living room. This decision was made by four intelligent adults--two of whom had raised three children together. However, we wised up with Miss Evelyn and performed her first home bath in the warmth of the bathroom. She had quite the spa experience!)

Picnic in the Backyard

(In case you haven't figured out, Isaac's "big brother" job is to push the music button on the swing. He takes this responsibility quite seriously.)










Post-doctor's appointment pictures

(Evelyn weighed in at 8 pounds 1 ounce and is now 22 inches long!)

Beautiful sweet pics!! So precious. We didn't do anything in pink and now it's Elizabeth's favorite color! It's all about the pink in her mind! So it looks like she'll get what she wants in the next room! Thinking about you all. Love you!

Lynley - I'm so glad you decided to allow "anonymous" comments. I've been lurking around your blog for a while now, but since I'm too lazy to start one myself, I've never been able to say hello! I love reading your stories and seeing all your fun pictures. You ave a beautiful family! Congratulations on your beautiful new baby girl! Matt and I are expecting our first (a boy) at the beginning of August. Hope you are feeling well.
