She's Here!

Tehya Mink Sonnenberg born at 9:17pm on January 28th! Dad changed the first diaper!
Ken was SO amazing throughout the whole birth process and afterwards. He was so calm, encouraging, supportive...everything. He even put his swim suit on and sat next to the birthing tub with me. After Tehya was born, he took her into another room and slept on this TINY couch with her just so I could get some rest. (However, I don't think I slept more than 30 minutes last night...too much excitement.)

Right as we walked in the door this morning, Maya walked out of her room. Ken told her that her sister was here and she was SO excited to hold her.
Aliyah got up a few hours later and couldn't wait to meet her as well.
We are so excited to have this new little angel in our family and feel so blessed. We are doing great and hope all is well with each of you!

BAbata-
I was just at your blog last night- how exciting to get Ken's e-mail and see these amazing, beautiful pictures! You look too skinny to have just had a baby! 17 minutes- w/ no "drugs." You go girl!
It's funny how excited I feel right now- Love you guys.

I'm amazed! What a beautiful experience it is to give birth. Ken's relating of his view of the experience was so touching. Thanks for sharing. She's beautiful, and so are you, Babata. My goodnes, you look great for having just given birth, had no sleep all night, and already home from the hospital. Get some rest now; you deserve it!
