Five on Friday: Phillip

Phillip Crane Martin - newborn photos
Happy Friday!!

One year ago today, I was driving home to the foothills to meet my family at the hospital. We were anxiously awaiting the arrival of my first niece or nephew (my sister didn't know at the time if she was having a boy or girl). For the record, I always knew she would have a boy!

I arrived to the hospital with plenty of time to spare. Little did we know, we'd spend the next 24 hours in that waiting room. My poor sister had a very long labor, and eventually had to have an emergency C-section when baby Phillip's little heart rate dropped. He was born just after 8am on Friday, March 15, 2013. He was 8 pounds 14 ounces and 22 inches long. A perfect and healthy little boy!

Becoming an Auntie has been one of the greatest things of my life. There is nothing better than kisses from Phillip. He is just too cute. I love going home to visit and getting in as much family time as possible. It's amazing how much he grows and changes in the few weeks that pass between each visit.

The past year has been so wonderful, I can't believe how quickly it's gone! My sister is one amazing Mom, let me tell you! It's been so fun to watch her in this role.

To celebrate Phillip's birthday, I thought I'd share five of my favorite pictures/memories from his first year!

I can't wait to see him tomorrow!! He really is the cutest baby ever! And I'm not just saying that because I'm his Auntie :) people always tell me that I have the cutest nephew, and they're right! I just wish I could see him more often, and that he wouldn't grow up quite as fast!

Happy Birthday Phillip, Auntie loves you!!
