Welcome to the world, baby girl!

No, I'm not talking about the book by Fannie Flagg. I'm talking about the long anticipated arrival of Adalyn Faith Hoyt! She made it in just under the wire yesterday, August 14th, making her appearance at 11:54 p.m. PST.
At 20.25" long, and weighing 7 lb. 4 oz, Adalyn is a slender little girl with big rosy cheeks and long fingers.
Her daddy had long fingers too, and my mom used to say that meant he'd be a piano player. Well, he took lessons for many years, although I don't think he does much playing these days. We'll just have to wait and see if Adalyn has any proclivity for the piano.
Obviously her parents are thrilled with their sweet little girl and we are totally in love with her, too! [And doesn't it look like she has a little dimple in her chin?]
Just so much squishy baby goodness, it makes my heart melt.
I've been walking around all day with a big grin saying, "My son is a daddy!"
I know Jon and Nat have prayed and waited for this day, and now that it's here we are so excited for them. All who know and love her parents are rejoicing at Adalyn's arrival.

Welcome to the world, baby girl!
