Day 2: Lilly's namesakes

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.  :)

  1. Lillian Wilmouth Richards Robarts, also known as "Granny" to her many grandchildren, raised nine children of her own and then helped raise three grandchildren after their father died. Remembered for many things, especially for sewing her granddaughters dresses and trimming them with rick-rack! :-) Lisa was the only great-grandchild Granny lived to see.
