And then there were five :)

So, Friday @ 12:30 I picked up BB's little brother from the hospital. He was 7lbs, 1 oz at birth and we should have a current weight after his first ped appointment today. He is a cutie. He doesn't love sleeping at night yet, which is a drag but we'll hopefully get it changed up soon. His blog nickname will be Baby K.

 The plan is to file for PCC (permanent court custody) on BB at the December hearing. Unclear how that will go, but mom has made little to no progress on her caseplan and hasn't been visiting consistently as of late. A lot will depend on what she does between now and December, I suspect though I doubt that he will be going anywhere before next summer even if they don't get PCC.

 We had a heads up about this about a month ago - we were under the impression from BB's old caseworker that the new baby wouldn't be coming into care, but the new c/w had different plans. I'm glad they were proactive about letting us know and informing us about the likely consequences of our answer - we didn't plan on taking any more kids, but were basically faced with the decision to take Baby K or have both he and BB moved to another placement to keep them together. The decisions we never thought we'd have to make!

wow. that's a lot of kids. I wish I lived nearby and could borrow that newborn of yours, though! I miss snuggling one fresh from the oven. :)
