The birth of Hannah Chai 蔡汉娜

Joni is now a big sister!

Baby Hannah born 12:48pm Malaysian Time 12/6/09 2.81kg 44.9cm.

This photo is from minutes after birth, still in the delivery room.
Here is Hannah after they took her to the nursery to warm up, but before they gave her a thorough cleaning.
Now here are mother and baby in the maternity ward after Hannah was cleaned up.
And here she is with daddy! (Amazing the picture turned out fine since I couldn't see where I was aiming the camera :)


Flashback:
Here is a photo of Hanna's first cry, still all messy from being removed from the womb. This is a frame grab from the video I made of the birth.
