Ok so I'm feeling a little emotional lol I know children go through phases where they only one one parents or the other but lately it's been making me kinda sad! My husband gets on the floor and rolls around and plays with my daughter, gives her piggy back rides etc. I of course, can't do that! Even not pregnant, it's hard for me to do some of the things he does with her. My husband gets off earlier than I do so he picks her up from daycare and gets to spend more time daily with her. I don't get home until close to six, we eat and her bath time is about 6:45 and bed by 7:30 so I get very little time with her. She's very much a daddy's girl, which I love, but sometimes I just wish she'd ask for me all the time and not her dad!!!!

Oh that is hard. My kids both went through a phase where daddy was best because he plays more with them. He's way more physically active with them than I am, even when I'm not pregnant. But they also both had a phase when mommy was best. I'm grateful that they had both, makes the time when the start teens years much easier, then they don't think they need you (except to go to the grocery store and to give them rides).
Hugs. On the bright side it sounds like your DH is very involved with your DD, and that's a great thing

I know this is how my husband feels as well. She loves you, but knows him better. For a while Marsi wouldn't let DH touch her or even talk to her without her screaming at him to stop or go away. It is hard.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Ouch, that would make me sad even without all the pregnancy hormones. Hopefully that phase passes quickly. A new baby girl might help change things.

Yes! I am very grateful my husband is so involved. He is a wonderful dad and I love that they are so close. Especially since at one time, he thought he didn't want kids (this was before he and I got serious) lol

Secretly, I do like it when he has to discipline her and she starts asking for me LOL

That's another thing though, when he disciplines, he's quick to butter up to her and is kind of a sucker LOL I on the other hand stand my ground and am more of the discipline parent lol I know this has a lot to do with her wanting him more too! lol

I think that's pretty typical, moms tend to be a little more firm in the discipline than dads. Sometimes I just tell DH to go discipline or have DD do something (like her chores) so I'm not always the bad cop
