Amarillo's first 2012 baby

Amarillo, Texas - Amarillo's first baby of the year made her entrance before 2012 was even half an hour old.

Jayden Rae Travis became Amarillo's newest resident at 12:17 Sunday morning at Northwest Texas Hospital.

We caught up with her proud parents this afternoon.

Her dad, Jessie Travis, says, "Pretty excited because she was supposed to be born December 26th, but she decided to come later, so it's pretty exciting."

Jessie and Andrea Travis better start saving now, because raising Jayden or any other baby born in 2012 is going to be pricey.

The latest reports show parents will spend an average of $250,000 per child, and that's not even including college.
