S: Juliana's First Year
1: The day began with an appointment, a burger at Vera's and a race to make sure Eleyna was looked after. It ended just after midnight March 16th 2010. You haven't stopped smiling since.
2: Unlike your sister, who seemed to enjoy the creature comforts the hospital provided, you were home within a day. Mom would've enjoyed staying. Eleyna couldn't wait to get you home.
3: Auntie Heidi finally made her way to the hospital and said you were worth the wait. Jody was there as usual, on time and ready to hold. Nanny, Bumpa, Auntie Katie and Owen all made appearances.
6: We went to Mooney's Bay to celebrate Nanny's birthday. It would end as it sometimes does: Eleyna naked in the water.
7: BUMBO! | The Bumbo would not last long as a useful seat. Once you figured out how to extricate yourself from the seat it became useless.
8: Thankfully Juliana liked camping as much as Eleyna. As long as the food and fun lasted the three of you were indeed "Happy Campers".
9: CAMPING! | Eleyna and Nicola prove that deep down inside all four year old little girls are pretty much alike.
12: So the first summer in the new house was...a little warm. We spent a lot of time outside and you both discovered the joy of a sprinkler.
13: We were also lucky to have a visit from your suddenly grown up cousins. Kassandra and Kitana were happy to play big sister to the both of you. It was a busy house full of silly girls.
14: There was nothing that made Juliana happier than romping around in her birthday suit. Thankfully "accidents" were kept to a bare minimum.
16: Days at the beach and many meals shared with the Currys and the Fauxs. The sand was EVERYWHERE. No one seemed to mind. | Wasaga Beach with the Currys and the Fauxs
19: Another week, another beach. Freeport, Maine this time. A long weekend with Jody, Nancy and the Keyhan Rodger crew.
20: Silly Bumpa!
22: The Dandelions "Back to School" fashion show. Not surprisingly, you two enjoyed your time in the spotlight.
23: Juliana, unable to walk down the aisle sat happily in the middle of it.
25: First day of school at Jean Paul II. Mom and dad were way more teary-eyed than the big girl on her way to "maternelle". You got on the bus and never looked back.
28: Big sister turns 4! The next day Eleyna was planning her 5th birthday...
30: Halloween arrives and not a moment too soon. There was an odd smell around the Ranch. We found the little critter hiding in the chip bags. We were saved when Jessie roped her in!
33: The fall means trips down to the farm and long walks in the forest. Mud was, as always, the highlight.
36: Juliana had a great Christmas coach in Eleyna. Nobody loves Christmas like your big sister.
37: Eleyna had to be convinced that Santa would, in fact, find the farm.
