This is my second post in a series of seventeen. 17 days of remembering Lilly's 17 months of life as we approach her one year angelversary.
Once we knew from the second ultrasound that Lilly was a girl, we gave her her name: "Lillian Eva." "Lillian" was after her great-great-grandmother on my side of the family (photo in below left of the scrapbook page) and "Eva" after her great-grandmother (below right) on Frank's side.
The Bible was Lillians's and cranberry colored glasses were Eva's.
"Lillian Eva" is such a beautiful name to me. Yet soon after she was born, we seemed to mainly be calling her "Lilly." That made me think of beautiful white Easter lilies. :)
