This week has been brutal. I’m working longer hours to get a lot of things ready to hand off to Lindsay in January. My wife is in her last month of work almost and she’s starting to get a little (more) crabby about everything. Her pregnancy is going great. Our son is great and doing little baby flips in there. He’s strong, great heart rate, and a little above average in growth. She has begun to get tired more often. I do all I can to make sure when she gets home from work she doesn’t have to do anything. She hangs out with the kids while I cook, clean up, and feed Peace when needed. I am wearing myself out. My nannies, thank the Lord, the Heavens, the Earth, all of it for them. They have been great. Sarah is the best nanny in the entire world. I literally started crying on Monday night begging her to move to Paris with us Lol She said no. I had to try at least once more. It’s okay. We still are getting one of our part-time nannies. I just wanted Sarah because I honestly get anxious knowing she won’t be there to help us out anymore. She’s that good.
Work is so busy. We have so many projects going on I told everyone no more buying buildings. Let’s work on what we have, let Lindsay do all the buying. She seems to have lots of free time. She’s mostly in Mexico right now. I barely see or talk to her anymore. Her investments in Mexico are HUGE. They are paying off really well and I’m very happy that it’s all working out. I also like knowing how much cash flow she has injected into the businesses. She is brilliant.
Everything else is great. Peace is now 9 weeks old. I can’t believe it. She’s growing so fast. My sweet little baby girl. We finally got her file from my adoption attorney. It contains as much information as the birth mom was willing to give to me about her. When/where she was conceived. What is the story about the two parents. The birth mom filled out this long 3 page form for us and let us know why she put Peace up for adoption. It’s heart breaking and I really wish she would have made it an open adoption but she said seeing her would make her regret everything and she wants to let the baby find her at 18 or older if she wants to. She let us know she will be open to that. Of course we will save this letter and keep it safe. Peace will find her. I know she will. We will help her.
I’m happy to know a little more background on how Peace came to be alive. I love her with all of my heart and I’m so thankful her birth mom blessed us with her. We will take very good care of her. She was so wanted and loved even before I knew she was going to be mine. My wife loves her. My wife will be the only mom she knows until she is old enough to understand she has a birth mom out there somewhere. We will always be very open with all 3 of our kids about their adoptions and we will also let their little brother know all of his siblings are adopted. We have nothing to hide about it. I’m actually very proud that I adopted such beautiful babies. I love my boys. I love Peace. I will love Peanut, or whatever we name him Lol We still call him Peanut. My wife is always telling me Your SON PEANUT won’t stop kicking me Lol But when we are laying in bed and I’m talking to him, she says I love him so much already. Me too!
We have zero name ideas for Peanut. We have a list and we can’t agree on anything at all. I’m not worried about it yet. If we hit January and still no name then I’m going to pull the man card out and just pick one. I can pick the first name, she can pick the middle name. We did the reverse of that to name Peace. I did not want my daughter’s name to be Peace. I fought that. I vetoed it, it finally grew on me. We did only have a day and a half to figure out her name though. Now I love it. It fits her perfectly. She is very peaceful.
I need to get back to work. Hope everyone is having a great week. Sorry I haven’t updated. It really is busy for me. I will response to all of your messages, emails, etc as soon as I can! Love ya’ll!
