FC: Juliana Rose Blake | Your First Year
1: Juliana Rose Blake Friday July 31st 2009 2:44 a.m. Weight: 6lbs 14oz Length: 19" long | Your original due date was August 11th. After going for some routine tests on July 29th, the doctor was concerned with your heart rate, and suggested that we induce labour. Daddy and Mommy went home for a very long and restless night. We got a call at 7 the next morning to come to the hospital. After 19 hours of labour, it was decided that we should do a C-Section. A short time later, you were born. We finally got to meet our little girl!
2: The Meaning Behind Your Name We named you after 3 generations of Mom's family. Your great-great grandmother's name was Julia. This is also your grandmother's (Baba's) middle name. Your great grandmother's middle name was Ann. So we combined all the names and Daddy really liked the name Juliana so that we were honouring family, but giving you a unique name.
3: Your first visitors | Aunty Bren | Jenn Ivan | Papa, Baba and Joshua
4: Your Nursery | Because we weren't sure for the longest time if you were a boy or a girl, we went with a neutral theme. We picked the bumblebees because it was cute, and not something we've seen before. The chair in your room was a gift from your Nana for our wedding. On your change table was the diaper cake that Baba and Aunt Brenda made for the baby shower.
