Baby Layla Danielle will be born in exactly 2 weeks. I will officially be the mother of 3 children. After this, I will not be having anymore children. I am tying my tubes!! For sure I won’t freak out about getting pregnant anymore haha.
At this point, I feel nervous about bringing a baby into this world because I have no idea what we are going to do with her when I go back to work. I don’t feel that Edward can handle taking care of a baby while working, especially if he has an unreliable schedule and doesn’t know when he will be busy or not. I guess we will have to play it by ear. I wish I was one of those persons that has everything pre-planned and know exactly how things are going to be handled.
Update on my kids:
Adan is 5 1/2 years old and is going to school in Brownsville. He is in Kinder. He absolutely loves it. He has a lot of friends. His best friends are Summer, Scarlet, and Caleb. He is very smart and does his homework easily. He loves reading and asking me the definitions of words.
Christy just turned 4 last month and has a really bright imagination. She loves playing make-believe with anything, including markers. She doesn’t go to school yet because she wasn’t 4 when school started, but I can tell that she wants to be in school just like her big brother. She can be very stubborn and it can be hard to get her to clean, but she is very sweet.
Update on my marriage:
We have been married for over 6 years by now. We still struggle a lot, especially with our finances. However, it does help that Edward does take care of Christy, and he now picks up Adan from school and drops him off in the mornings. He is also still working with Pop-A-Lock and has been with them for over a year which is great that he is sticking to one job. He is also still paying for child support. He is FINALLY fighting for his visitation rights with Miranda. Next Friday, he is going to be escorted by the police to pick up Miranda since Amy always gives us a hard time. He has also been talking to his other daughter Genessis over the phone. Our kids were able to video chat with her as well, so that was pretty cool.
He has grown up a little bit more, so I am hoping that he will be helping out more with Layla than he did with our other kids when they were babies because it’s a lot of work.
As for me, I had lost 75 lbs, but I have gained like 48 lbs. during this pregnancy… not even kidding. I plan on trying to breastfeed as much as possible. That way I can also lose weight at the same time haha. I also plan on returning to exercising and counting calories as soon as I can because I do not enjoy having a double chin. Yuck.
