The newest member of the Marr Family has arrived! Teresa Claire was born 10/22/2015 at 11:41 AM. She weighed in at 8lbs 5oz and was 19.5 inches long. The nurses were all surprised she was so big (she was due 10/31) and said she’ll be beating up her brothers in no time.
We were/are both in shock that we have another kiddo in our family, never mind the fact that she’s a girl! Teresa is named after her great-grandmother, Teresa “Binkie” Conroy. We love her name and love that it honors one of our all time favorite people in the world:
Her brothers are adjusting surprisingly well to having a new addition to the family, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed it continues this way! Pete is entirely smitten with her and takes such good care of her. He constantly wants to hold her and asks about her first thing every morning when he wakes up. He is just so sweet and kind, and Teresa is so lucky to have him as her big brother. James seems to love “baby Treesa” as well. He very kindly tried to share his graham crackers with her when she was two days old 🙂 Being gentle doesn’t come easy to James, but he is so sweet and means well. She is going to be one well-protected little girl!
