Today's post is a little picture heavy but I have good reason, I promise! This past Saturday, on August 27th I celebrated the birth of my sweet little princess Eva Lucille. I still can't believe she turned FOUR! Today I'm taking a walk down memory lane.
This was the first picture taken of my sweet baby, the day I found out I would be having a princess
Please, please ignore how awful I look, this was 9 days before Eva was born and it was CRAZY HOT outside, and the polka dots definitely didn't help.
My beautiful, healthy girl made her arrival on August 27, 2007 at 3:11pm weighing 8lbs 6oz and 21 1/2 in long.
This has ALWAYS been one of my favorite pictures, this is also the picture we used for her birth announcement.
2007 was definitely the year of the baby in our family. This picture includes my Aunt and cousin Miller who is 5 months older than Eva, Me and Eva when she was exactly 1 month old, and my Mom and niece when she was 1 day old. My cousin also had a little boy 20 days before Eva. It was definitely fun all being pregnant at the same time.
This picture is from Eva's baptism when she was about 6 weeks old. She was baptized in Pennsylvania where her Dad's family is from. The church where she was baptized has a lot of meaning on her Dad's side, it was the church where her grandparents were married and both her Dad and Aunt Brooke were also baptized there. And the dress she was wearing was the same dress her Mimi Mercer and Aunt Brooke wore at their baptisms. It was a very special day.
When Eva was about 9 months old we made a trip to Tampa, FL to visit her Aunt Brooke and newest cousin Kaylee. It was also Eva's 1st trip to the beach.
Eva's 1st Birthday party!
