My beautiful baby girl was born on [name_u]November[/name_u] 22nd at 2:42 pm. She was born exactly 4 weeks early, with all 10 fingers and all 10 toes, she had a little bit of breathing difficultly when she first arrived, but fortunately, we only needed to stay overnight in the hospital.
Her name is [name_f]Aliya[/name_f] [name_u]Rae[/name_u] [name_f]Josette[/name_f] - her nickname is [name_u]Allie[/name_u]
[name_f]Aliya[/name_f] doesn’t have a meaning behind it, I simply just adore the name, I have loved it for as long as I can remember.
[name_u]Rae[/name_u] doesn’t have much meaning either, I think it simply helps to complete her name and I love it! Although it does have a kind of link to my mom’s side of the family because every girl born since my great-grandma has had a form of [name_f]Renee[/name_f] in their name. So while it isn’t an exact match I feel that in some sense it honors this.
[name_f]Josette[/name_f] has a really special meaning to me. I chose this name to honor my older brother. He died in [name_u]November[/name_u] 2019. His name was [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m]. I fell in love with the idea that I could somehow honor my brother in my daughter’s name, I feel like [name_f]Josette[/name_f] does this perfectly.
In some way I feel it was fate too, my baby girl was born 2 days before the 1st anniversary of his death.
I am so completely in love with my baby girl, my [name_u]Allie[/name_u].
