Colic Stinks

The first reflux med didn't work

at all.

The second formula helped

a tiny bit.

The second reflux med helped

a tiny bit,

and I just thought we were going

to learn to live

with a LOT of crying!

I've got my fingers crossed

right now, because we've had

two good days with our THIRD formula!

Yay!

Settling In

Our poor Squidget had reflux.

I've never had a baby with reflux.

We've done food intolerance, but reflux is awful!

He's settling in,

and just as importantly,

Babycakes is settling in.

History Fair-The Last?

This was probably our last

history fair.

That makes me so sad!

Mimi graduates this year,

so it's her last year for sure,

and Princess and Mac are

not as excited as they were when

all the other attendees

were our friends,

so I think we're done!

Why, yes, I did sew like a madwoman

trying to get these costumes done

the day before!

Mac didn't participate,

and I chased one little boy

around while a littler boy

was strapped to my chest,

but the girls looked fantastic!

Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Hamilton:

Baby

So,

I usually post stuff

here on our blog

after my kids are in bed,

and it's peaceful and quiet.

Now, I just go to bed!

For privacy and safety reasons,

we won't be showing his face,

or sharing his name,

but we call him Sqidget

or Peanut.

Part of the Package

I'm feeling quite overwhelmed

by the schedule that came with this

tiny guy.

He has almost daily visits with his mama,

medical appointments,

court appointments,

and social worker appointments,

to add to our crazy days.

Lets add that to the loooong nights

he also brought with him!

Even with the added level of chaos,

we're all really enjoying all the

cuddles and baby squeaks that

are a part of the package!

Chaos Level Red

You know a typical family

would say to themselves

Hey, we have a new baby,

a there's that Chuck E Cheese birthday party,

which includes a van full of

loud, wiggly boys,

 that seems like enough chaos.

 But we at Casa Chaos,

we would call that not even trying!

Lets scheduled a little

home improvement project!

I mean,

why live with probable

or even expected chaos,


When you can have CERTAIN chaos!

Arrived!

As much as we are loving

having this tiny one

to cuddle and love on,
I think of his mama

all day long,

and how her heart must be so, so broken.

I'm truly praying that

everyone can work things out

for the best both of them!

Children's Museum

Today was the kinda day

where we need to get out

of the house

but the weather says

stay home!

So the local kid's museum

is a total win!
We played in the water,

made some paper airplanes

and some musical insturments

and marched in an impromptu parade!
Win!

Yes, that kind of call!

I'm on my way!

Happy Birthday Babaycakes!

My mind is so blown away

that my baby

my Babycakes

is FIVE!

FIVE is not a baby!

FIVE is BIG!
And yet here he is,

my baby!
 He got a full set

of superhero capes

and masks

(along with a pile of board games)

for his birthday
 which he shared,

so we could all join in the fun

in public

with the whole world wondering

why exactly we were wearing them.
What could top this level of fun?

Only pumpkin pie

with candles

and many

many

many

rounds of Hungry Hungry Hippos!
