Corsicana Daily Sun

— Brandon and Rachell Payne are proud to announce the birth of their daughter, Aubree Kendall Payne, born June 10, 2013, at 8:42 p.m. at Navarro Regional Hospital. She weighed 7 lbs. 7 oz. and was 20.5 inches in length.

Aubree was welcomed by cousins Mallory, Alyssa, Maycie, and Laynie Walker and Brandon Colter. Also welcoming Aubree were aunts Mikayla Jones, Cassie Colter, Jill Walker, and Brittany Walker, and uncles Kendall Walker, Jake Petty, and Josh Colter and special family friends, Tony and Teresa Jones.

Very proud grandparents include maternal grandparents Steve and Lelanie Petty and Kenneth Walker, Jr., maternal great-grandparents Linda McKinney and the late Donald McKinney and the late Kenneth and Dolores Walker, Sr.  She is also welcomed by paternal grandparents Sandra Payne and Andy Wilcox and great-grandmother Nora Jo Payne and the late Jim Payne.

Aubree’s arrival allowed her to meet her maternal great-great-grandmother, Virginia Livingston, before she passed away on July 16, 2013.

Aubree met her Daddy in person for the first time on Thursday, Sept. 5 when Brandon came home from Iraq. Her relationship with him, after a rather traumatic birth experience, had been through Skype and FaceTime up to that point.

Also very excited about Aubree's arrival were God-aunt Krista Nabors, and God-cousin Paisley Gibson.
