Looking Back...

As May 11th rapidly approaches, we here at casa de phillips are gearing up to celebrate this wonderful first year of Evelyn's life. Although it has only been a mere 363 days to date of having this little girl around, I personally cannot remember life without her.

Because I am a whirl with party preparations (we are having a "Garden Party" themed birthday in our backyard....complete with pink tulle and scads of balloons) and because today is the last MOPS meeting for the semester, this post is going to be short, sweet, and filled with links to catch up on all things Evelyn.

Read here about our announcement of being pregnant with Evelyn.

Read here for all the details about finding out Evelyn was indeed a GIRL!

Due to the fact that I birthed Evelyn in the same hospital that Tobe works for, we were able to have amazing Internet access and blog her birth live. She will likely be in therapy for this one day, but I love looking back on these posts.

If you are interested in following the events of May 11, 2007; start here and enjoy!

Fourth Post (I look like I am 12 years old in this picture...which is a bit alarming since I am about to give birth)

Sixth Post (Note to self: Never dictate blog posts under haze of epidural)

Seventh Post (almost there...)

Amazing how this:

Can turn into this in one short year!
