These are newly created districts.
1)CO-8(Denver Suburbs district)
2)FL-28(FL Republican state legislatures will make FL-26- Gimenez-R and FL-27- Elvira Salazar-R more Republican. Hispanic majority district.
3)NC-14(Charlotte Suburbs district)

2. I think we are

https://pressgallery.house.gov/member-data/party-breakdown

It looks like we hold a 6 seat advantage currently according to the house press gallery. If we gain 1 seat as the OP indicated, wed have a 7 seat advantage with control.

3. oh good. I see we lose Ryan's seat and Lamb's seat

Lamb was a bit of a disappointment, but still reliable and Ryan is moving to the Senate (we hope) So that part's good. Nancy says she might retire, so that leaves a giant hole.

I think the overview you provided was good to see where we need to score up to keep our majority.
