Anyway I think this is episode 24…
Jenelle has her baby shower and even though she’s been fighting with her mom and Nathan, things go well. She’s only a couple days away from her due date, but her water ends up breaking early in the morning, and when Barbara picks up Jace, she even tells her how excited she is that the baby is coming. On the drive to the hospital Nathan says he’s excited for the baby to arrive as well.
Jenelle’s contractions are setting in and she’s in a lot of pain. Her mom is at the hospital to help her, and Nathan is awkwardly videotaping this whole thing. Jenelle starts pushing and saying how she can’t do it. Before we know it, Kaiser is born.
Kaiser gets to come home and Jenelle realizes how much different things are with him as opposed to when she brought Jace home. She talks about how every time she tried to take care of Jace, her mom would step in. Nathan claims that he’s going to be like “a female crocodile protecting her young” when it comes to taking care of the baby. Nathan actually wakes up at night to make bottles for the kid, and it seems like things went pretty well. Nathan says that he doesn’t want Barbara disciplining his child or telling them what to do with him. Nathan wears sunglasses in the house for some reason.
Barbara brings Jace over to see Kaiser, and Barbara washed all of Kaiser’s outfits from the hospital. Jace says he likes Kaiser, and Barbara seems pretty supportive of everything, which is nice. Barbara tries to step in on changing a diaper, but realizes that Jenelle can handle it on her own. Kaiser sleeps pretty much all night, which is a blessing. Jace holds Kaiser for the first time, and it’s pretty sweet. Jace just nods a lot and doesn’t seem too interested in the baby. Jenelle does give Jace some attention for himself at the end, and you can tell that regardless of everything, he does love his mom.
Kailyn and Javi talk about their issues a little bit regarding Isaac not being able to go on family vacation with them, and Kailyn’s emotions regarding Isaac being gone for 6 weeks to spend time with Jo. Kailyn admits that she’s going to be sad when Isaac goes to Jo’s house, but also says that she’s going to spend time going to school and figuring those things out during her time with just one child. Kailyn plans to take classes while Isaac is at school, but Kailyn seems determined to get a degree.
Isaac finished preschool, and Kailyn says that she’s emotional. Kailyn talks to Isaac about going back to college, and Isaac says that he’ll pick her up from school. Kailyn’s friend thinks that it’ll be nice for her to go back to school now, and that she’ll still have Javi to help with the kids if she needs extra time to do school work. Kailyn comments that she did things backwards, but is trying to sort things out now.
Kailyn gets ready to drop Isaac off with Jo, but Isaac doesn’t seem happy about leaving for 6 whole weeks. Kailyn thinks she’s going to cry a lot when she drops off Isaac, and that’s all she talks about in the car. She starts crying thinking about how Jo doesn’t take care of Isaac the same way that she does. You can tell that this is really taking a toll on Kailyn, and it’s kind of sad to watch.
Eventually they get to Jersey and drop off Isaac, but he’s sleeping. Kailyn lays him down for bed and gets to say she loves him before he falls back asleep. She’s crying about it before she even leaves the room, and it really is heartbreaking. Vee offers some support, and it’s nice to see these guys working on their co-parenting.
Leah takes Ali to physical therapy, and claims that she’s still really hurt that Corey thought she wasn’t taking her to her appointments. Leah’s cousin watches the other girls and she and Corey end up talking about how Ali’s therapist said that the only times she’s ever missed therapy is when Ali has been sick or hurting. Leah says that she and Jeremy are getting along a lot better, but realizes that he’s in a strange situation regarding Corey.
Corey met with a lawyer and talks to Miranda about how it went. Corey says that he just wants what’s best for the girls and thinks that they need structure. Miranda wants people to know that they’re not trying to attack anyone and that they’re trying to do what’s best for the kids. Corey has a specific way that he wants the kids raised, and that he wants to be given a chance to show that he can provide for them. He comments that any time someone says something bad to Leah or Jeremy, they start arguing and that Corey just isn’t giving in to their crap any more. Corey also talks about the wheelchair situation, but realizes that there’s no sense in calling the insurance company every single day.
Corey and Miranda sit down with a lawyer and talk about Leah’s petition to the parenting plan. Leah has asked for more child support and medical rights to Ali. Corey says that Ali has physical therapy every Tuesday but that Leah hasn’t been taking Ali to her therapy. The lawyer files a petition to get Corey the full-time parent status and have Leah has the weekend parent. The lawyer says that mediation works sometimes, but that since there’s so much at stake, it probably won’t be a nice compromise.
Leah gets an email from Corey’s attorney saying that he’s filing for full custody of the girls and that he wants Leah to pay child support and only get the kids on the weekends. Leah says that it doesn’t make sense, and that she’s worried about it. Jeremy assures her that she’s not a bad parent, but Leah says that it cuts her down as a mom. She says that she’s never cut Corey down as a dad, and that she’s always been good to Corey regardless of their relationship issues. Leah cries about how much the girls mean to her, but Jeremy tries to reassure her that she doesn’t have anything to worry about. Jeremy doesn’t think that Corey and Miranda have things ready for taking care of two kids full time.
Aubree is with Adam’s family for the weekend, so Chelsea is staying busy with work. Chelsea sits down with Chelsey Grace and talks about how Taylor has posted pictures with Aubree on Instagram lately. Chelsea says that there’s no point in Taylor posting pictures since she’s not with Adam any more, but does realize that Aubree should spend time with Paislee. Chelsea texts Taylor saying that she’s crazy and needs to stop posting pictures of Aubree. Taylor says that Aubree asked to come see her and that Taylor doesn’t know what she would do without having Aubree in her life. Chelsea repeats her original message and simply doesn’t want pictures of her kid posted by Taylor.
Chelsea picks up Aubree from Adam’s family. Taylor and Adam take Paislee to the park, and even though they aren’t together, they seem like they’re trying to make things work for their kid. Taylor wishes that she and Chelsea could have a relationship because she thinks it’s important for Aubree and Paislee to have a relationship that’s more than every other weekend. Taylor thinks that Adam and Chelsea need to figure out how to co-parent. Adam reveals that he and Jessica broke up because she couldn’t stand people comparing her to Taylor and Chelsea.
Aubree has another ball game, and Adam shows up again. Adam tells his friends that he and Jessica broke up, and reveals that Taylor is going to come to the game since she’s off work. Randy looks confused at the fact that Taylor is there, and it’s always just so awkward when everyone is together, even if they aren’t talking to each other.
After Aubree’s ball game is over, Adam asks to say goodbye to Aubree. Chelsea lets him know about other games that are coming up, but she and Taylor don’t exchange any words. Chelsea comments that it’s dumb for Adam to be there and that the last week he had a different girlfriend. Chelsea says that it’s mostly annoying to just have to see him, but Randy says that it’s how things are for half of the families out there.
