Judges generally don't like to allow deals like that.
And his obligation to CS doesn't stop after he has more kids- your child was born first. He doesn't get to pick and choose what kids he will support.
you could bring it up in mediation. Or you could smile and wave everytime you see her.
the mediation probably won't do much. smiling and waving will make you feel good and will raise her BP 20 points. that's a win/win in my book.

I would talk to a lawyer now. There are places where judges do not like to terminate rights unless there is a step parent adoption in the *near* future. I would consult a lawyer before I sent him *anything* else.
Honestly, if he wasn't doing anything i would let sleeping dogs lie.
My ex rarely takes the kids. And when he does, it's for 4 maybe 5 hrs. at a time.
If i had a 'free' weekend, i would work. Or break out my sewing machine and sew. Or play all my music I can't listen to around the kids while I eat Chunky Monkey from the carton and dance around in my jammies.
Wait, that last bit may be just me....lol
