Dear Evy:

promising to live a happy and simpler life in honor of my evelyn

Oh Evelyn, I miss you so much. This morning we did a ‘Celebrate Evy Memorial Shoot’ at Uncle Scott’s house. That was fun and distracting and entertaining. But once we met the rest of the family on you Daddy’s side, it was so obvious that you were missing. I already had bought you a 4th of july outfit. This time last year, I was very pregnant with you. I was actually hoping that you would come early so I could have a July 4th baby. Since your sister is a St. Patty’s day baby, I thought it would be fun to have you on a holiday too. But you held off for another 8 days.

It’s crazy that you never experienced a 4th of July. You never saw fireworks. I never strolled you through the bike parade in Greendale. You were here and gone so fast. This picture is of Ava when she was 4 months old in the Greendale Bike Parade. The picture of you Evelyn, is at 10 months. I knew you would probably outgrow the outfit by the 4th of July and at least wanted you to wear it once. It was such a cute outfit that Tammy and Stacey Craig had bought.

I’m glad I was able to get a picture of you in it too. Love you so much! Happy 4th of July Evelyn!!!Ava and Evelyn Legge


One thought on “Dear Evy: 4th of July

  1. Beth, I was lucky to hold the girls last year during the fireworks. I love fireworks and July 4th is my favorite holiday. They were never scared. But to me the girls see fireworks every day in heaven. So does Evy.
