Tahoe Forest Hospital Welcomes First Baby of the New Year

Tahoe Forest Hospital is pleased to announce that the first baby of the New Year was born Friday, January 1, 2016, at 11:03 p.m.

The baby boy, named Wyatt Randall Johns, weighed 8 pounds, 13.8 ounces at birth, and measured 19½ inches. The parents, Robert Johns and Julie Boren, live in Portola. Robert has a 3-year-old daughter, Kasiya.

Having the first baby of the New Year didn’t really surprise Julie. “I kind of knew,” said Julie, that she might have a New Year’s baby. “My due date was the 31st.”

“I think it’s really cool,” she said. “I lucked out.” Robert added, “New Year’s Day is a really unique birthday.”

The new baby is the 3rd generation of the Boren family to be born at Tahoe Forest Hospital. Julie’s dad, Brooke Boren, son Truckee’s Jack Boren, was born there, and Julie was as well. “I knew it would be a good experience,” said Julie. “The nurses provided excellent care.”

The Tahoe Forest Hospital Women and Family Center presented the family with a gift basket of items generously donated by community members and local merchants to honor the 2016 New Year’s baby.

The new parents and Tahoe Forest Hospital would like to thank and recognize Gratitudes, Julie Huck, owner, and Sue Moule, who assembled the beautiful basket, and all the staff of Gratitudes; Dorinda's Chocolates for the handcrafted chocolates, provided by Dorinda Vance; Sona Bena, stylist at Mane Attraction, for a gift certificate for a cut and blow dry; Starbucks in Truckee, Carla Gifford, Manager, for coffees and a mug; Truckee Safeway, Eric Lundstrom, Manager, for the Gift Card; Triology Spa, who provided a gift set and massage gift certificate; Lori Naumann, owner of Dirty Chic handmade products for goat milk soap; Judy Souza for the hand-woven bracelet; and Kidzone Museum for the free membership.
