How make report sort by month name in logical order, not alphabetically

I have a report that has two groupings.  Group by FullName (which is employee name), and then by Date Worked.  But date worked is formatted like:

=Format([DateWorked],"mmmm")

in the control source.  By doing this it prints, for example, "January" if the date worked was 1/13/2014.

But then because it is grouped by Date Worked (which is therefore alphabetical), the months don't appear in calendar order.  They appear alphabetically which isn't what we want.

How can I make the results print in calendar order?
