She's Here!

This morning at 8:58 am we welcomed the newest member of our family. 

Mary-Therese Philomena weighed in at 8 lbs 12 ounces and 21 inches, making her the second smallest of the Wollner babies (James is the smallest). 

Sadie was relieved, because she really didn't want anyone to break her record as the heaviest and longest of the babies (9 lbs 4 ounces and 22 inches). 

Mary-Therese, who Patch is calling Tessie (and who can resist a Patch nickname?), immediately caught on to the whole nursing thing, and spent roughly  3 hours and 50 minutes of the first four hours of her life nursing non-stop.  We were all kind of amazed.  She was definitely the first of our babies to spend the entire time in the OR nursing after she was weighed. 

I'll write a post later that tells the whole story of our day, but overall I will say that this was the most relaxing and pleasant of our baby birth days. 

So without further ado, here's one of the first pictures of Tessie.  We haven't quite figured out which of the babies we think that she looks like! 


  1. What a cutie pie, congratulations to you all.

  2. What a little cutie, congratulations to you all

  3. Congratulations!!! I can't figure out who she most resembles, either, though babies seem to take a day or two to "settle into their faces", once the eye drops wear off.

    I must say I love your choice of name; mine is Marie Therese. :)

  4. As soon as I read the first paragraph I said a Memorare in thanksgiving. Congrats!!! May God bless you and your family now and forever!

  5. Congratulations Cammie! I can see a lot of Patch in her, yes?

  6. Congratulations! She looks like Sadie a little?


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
