God has been abundantly faithful and gracious to me. The transition of baby "A" into the family has been seamless. She is a very good baby. I can feel God helping me and even though I am tired, I am not exhausted or feel like I am spread to thin. Baby "A" has had some tummy issues and reflux but seems to be responding well to a gentler formula and medication. She has only been waking up once a night, since the beginning, so really that is a great thing. She has grown a lot already and is 16 days old already.
We have taken the summer off from home schooling so we can focus on the addition of the new baby. We have had to adjust our schedules a bit, "K" is still very delayed and needs me and the toddlers still have some over the top behaviors.

When May 1st hit we knew we would be getting baby "A" at anytime. So we took a few family outing days because we knew life was about to change big time and it would be easier to get out and do these things with out a new born in the heat.
One Sunday we met Tim's parents at the Aquarium. We have a membership there someone bought for our family. It always makes for a nice outing.

|My big guys! You can tell the heat really bothers Antonio here. He stays cheerful but just melts.|
|Sweet baby "K"!|
|My middles are very close to each other, all born a year apart! So are very bonded! Look how grown up!|
I also took the children to the Chattanooga Zoo for the day.

|Trying to get a good shot of all them looking at me is soooo hard!|
So... all is well and God is so good. We are going to stay in for a few months. No big plans. A lot of our commitments are about to end for the summer. Like Ballet. The girls recital is next week. So things should slow down and I won't have to leave the house much. Hopefully by the time we start schooling again new baby "A" will be in a nice predictable schedule!
Isaiah 26:12 Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.
God be with you!
