A Family of Five!

On Sunday, December 29th at 5:45 pm, we welcomed another sweet little girl into this world!  Mary Graham Worthington (we are calling her "Mary Graham") weighed 7 lbs, 14 oz, and was 21" long.  We are all smitten with her and already find it a little hard to remember life without her.




I plan to share her birth story soon, but for now I thought I'd share some of my favorite photos from the past ten days or so at home.

I love this picture, blurriness and all.  I feel like it would make for a great painting of my three together...




People have been asking how Wade and Holland are doing with Mary Graham.  The good news is they love her, are very interested in her, and don't seem to be experiencing any jealousy.  The not so great news is they appear to have no clue about the need to be gentle with her.  I will admit I didn't foresee telling my almost five-year old, "You may not put your shoe on the baby's head!"  They are a bit like predators, really.  Friendly predators, I suppose you could say.  Hopefully the learning curve will not prove to be too steep!
Mimi was here for the first couple days…this girl was very sad when she had to leave :(
We celebrated both the New Year and our new little girl with pink champagne!
One of the benefits of the military is the two weeks paternity leave that Philip has been able to take.  The time has truly been such a gift.  Combined with the fact that our church has graciously set up a meal calendar for us, I have been rather spoiled!  

Family movie night with everybody :)
Tutus are a big part of this girl's life these days.
I caught a sleep smile! 
First bath!


She did this and told us she was Mary now :)  (Jesus' mother that is, not her little sister)
Mary Graham's great-grandmother made her sweet little bonnet :)













Big sister wanted to share her love of tutus with little sister…who was clearly not so enamored with them.

Looking a little nervous, but I had to include because she's wearing my dress!
Real men paint their little sisters' toes :)
Making cinnamon buns is a favorite activity around here.  Interestingly,  many of the store-bought kinds are chock full of artificial ingredients so they are actually quite allergy-friendly!  
I love this view.
