Donavyn Faith Koehler!!!

Born Sept 25th 2007 at 6:33 pm.
She weighed in at 5 lbs 14 oz and 19 3/4 inches long.

It's been an exhausting couple of days but we are finally home and couldn't be happier!! We really appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. We couldn't have done this without the support of everybody out there!! I hate to lump you all together like this but if I were to list everyone of you I think I would break the internet. You are all so special to us and we are truly blessed to have you as friends and family.

Mother and Daughter are doing just fine and hopefully 0nce we get settled in a little bit more we'll be able to share our story with you. We have most of it already written but every time we would try to finish it and get it posted we would be interrupted by a doctor or nurse. But no more interruptions now!! (yeah right) But we promise we will get more pictures posted and fill you in on the exciting new addition to our family.

God Bless You All!!!

We are SO happy to see a picture of that sweet little angel. Donovyn already has both of you wrapped around her little finger..I can tell! I want to see more pictures soon...of her fingers and toes and little feet...everything I would check out if I were there! Oh, to be able to feel those little fingers grabbing on to mine! She's already grabbed my heart. Kiss the nape of her neck for me...that's my spot. Can't wait to do it for myself. Hope all of you get some well-deserved rest.
Lots of love, Grandma Judy

Congratulations! She is beautiful!

I go to church with Brian and Becca, and they've been keeping us updated over the past year and a half. We just had our little girl 7 weeks ago. Be sure to take in each and every precious, sleep deprived moment because they will slip by so very fast. :=}

I know you both are in absolute LOVE!!! I believe babies are God's way of giving us a little taste of heaven!!

God Bless,

Greetings to you all! I chatted with Shana tonight and she told me you had gotten your precious baby girl...and with a little boy bundle of joy on the way too. I am so happy for all of you! Your lives are going to be so very exciting now!! I think of the two of you when Shana and Scott were getting married here in Fresno and how much help you both were in making the day a lot of fun for everyone. Beth, I remember how sweet you were in helping me get all the final details in order the day before the wedding. You were just the person I needed to keep me sane.
God bless you all!

I think I may have fallen a little bit in love with that little precious girl of yours today! And I teared up a little to see how happy you guys are!!! I can't WAIT to spend more time with the newly-enlarged Koehler family (once you're a little more rested up!).

So glad to have the three of you home!!

She is Very beautiful! Its such a wonderful blessing for us to watch God bless you so abundantly with a wonderful family! I will never forget immediately falling deep in love with ARYANNA, when I first met her. I don't remember feeling that kind of love in my life ever til that moment. I know you too will do the same. Bless your new family.

Lots of Love,

I waited until now to post this because I had to get the kids' reaction (they were in bed last night when I saw). We are all so excited for you and miss you SO MUCH MORE NOW! We are proud for you, proud of you! Donavyn is absolutely beautiful- just as you both are. I can't help but feel jealous that so many others are getting to see my little neice before me! But I know and I am grateful you have such wonderful friends, your "extended" family! Please eat her up with kisses from us! And send close-up and detailed photos so we can see those precious toes, fingers, ears, etc! We love you all! Delinda, Gregg, Savannah, & Conley

She's beautiful.

Good luck in your first few days at home. I wish I could come by, drop something off for you to eat, and hold her.

Oh, she is so beautiful. She is almost the exact same size Melanie was...and Melanie is 20 lbs., get ready!!!!!! I am just so happy for all three (soon to be four) of you. Just wish you lived here and they could play with Melanie and Mason. We miss y'all so much. Words can not express the happiness we feel for you. Much, much love....Lanie

Oh my gosh! She is SO cute! I can't wait to be able to put my new cousins in my arms and give them lots of hugs and kisses! Maybe I can babysit them when we come to Alaska! I love and miss you all so much! Peace, Makayla
