My husband is the best daddy in the world. I could not ask for anything more...Well, almost. He comes home every day and spends every waking moment he can with her, feeds her dinner, and bathes her! On her days off, again, tries to spend as much time as he can with her. But, he seems to never want to get into the "special things" I told him I wanted to get Adriauna's pictures done for Christmas and all I get is, we can take them and print them out! or when she started solids, he thought it wasn't a big deal and didn't understand the whole "first spoon" deal....We have a perfect marriage (although we both wish there was 27 hours in a day) but how can I get him to get more involved in these all these events?
I think that he thinks that the time that he has with her is the special time. Mine is sort of the same way. I think it is sort of a guy thing as women are a little more sensitive that sort of thing. What is important to one is not necessarily speical to another. Just keep inviting him to be a part of it. Make the appointment to get the pics done and invite him along to watch or help out. He will come around.
Whenever I think we've reached some sort of milestone and and excited about it and tell my DH he just stares at me with a blank look. He just doesn't get it... It's like "...sooo, this is important... why?"
I think that sometimes guys just don't get these things. It's like I have to explain to him why something is supposed to be a big deal, and then he still doesn't really see it. Bah - oh well.
So I can't really offer up any suggestion. heh ^^; Just simpathy.
