She's here!!

Y'all may remember my brother's adorable "we're expecting" announcement:

Well, Little Miss decided she was tired of waiting and wanted to grace us with her presence two weeks early. I don't think anyone was complaining since we were all very anxious to meet her as well.
Little Delaney Ryan Walker was born one week ago yesterday.

She was 6 lbs. 11 ounces and is one of the most adorable babies I've ever laid eyes on (not biased at all).

I could show you pictures all day, but I won't because you'll be getting PLENTY of that in the future.

My parents jumped on the first plane they could and spent the weekend out there. I stayed behind to keep things together at the office. I'm as smitten as one can be considering I've only "met" her via text photos.

However, I'm beyond excited because I'm headed to Phoenix tomorrow to see her in person.  Her two uncles will be there as well, so it should be a fun sibling weekend fawning over our newest family member.

I'm so looking forward to doing all the fun things with her that my aunt did with me- painting her teeny tiny finger nails, taking her shopping, teaching her things in the kitchen, and just trying to live up to my new role as her "Crazy Aunt Natalie." I've decided it's kind of the coolest title ever since you get to enjoy all the fun without the pressure of raising a human. Which lets face it- at the point that I sometimes forget to feed my dog, we should probably stick with furry "children" for a bit longer. {Note to family/friends: the previous statement should in no way deter you from allowing me to babysit in the future. I can and will remember to feed your human babies... I think.} 

Congratulations Clint & Whitney!! I can't wait to see y'all this weekend and love on sweet Delaney!
