A very late update

We added a new member to our household earlier this month.  This is Glow Stick. She was born weighing 8lbs 12oz and is a very awake baby. Due to jaundice, she had to remain in the hospital for 5 days. The minions came up to visit us daily. Due to the government shutdown, The Elder was not able to take his time off. Glow Stick was born in the morning and The Elder was back to work by noon.

We were one of the lucky families and we had money in the bank. So we were fine even though The Elder was not paid for several weeks. Once the government was "running" again, The Elder took his two weeks off. This is the last week he is off. I have to admit it is almost like having a 6th child.

Colonel Sanders loves her sister.
 In the mean time, Clark has been having a bit of a rough time at school. More meltdowns, he has turned into a runner, and he had to be taken out of the lunch room. The noises and other kids are just to much for him in the gym. So he eats with his teacher or another adult every day. The Elder has stopped in to have lunch with the boys several times while he has been off. Clark loved it and his teacher reported that the rest of that day and the one after the lunch time visit went smoother than normal
This is why she is called Glow Stick. She came home on a bili blanket and was on it for a week at home.
 Tyke also enjoyed the lunch time visits. He is doing well in his class. He keeps an eye on his older brother at school. Pork did not make it into preschool. We work on things at home though. Colonel Sanders is such a big girl. She likes to sit on the potty and help feed her sister when we bottle feed.
