First Baby of 2004

ETMC delivered the first New Year's baby in Tyler. Sanaa Dominique was born at 1:16 a.m. today, weighing in at 7 lbs., 5 oz., and measuring 20 in. long. Her mother, Rhonda Smith, says she went into labor New Year's Eve and was ready to have her baby as soon as possible.

"It's a blessing. It really is. I didn't think I was going to have her this soon, especially on New Year's. So to come in like that, it's not only history, it's a blessing that we're real thankful for," Smith said.

Smith says Sanaa is the third and last child for her. Sanaa has two sisters and three brothers in all.
