I have to say, though...my parenting 'partner' is ah-may-ziiiing. He makes life with a kid easier.
One thing that has really been so awesome for me to watch is seeing my husband become a daddy. I know that sounds so corny and cliche, but I mean it. It has been the most special thing, everrr.

He tells her everyday how much he missed her while he was at work, and kisses her squishy cheeks a million times the second he comes in the door. In return, he gets a
He has blown me away with the natural fathering instinct he has. He's very relaxed with her. He really loves to spend the few hours before she goes to bed at night with her right by his side.

He's such a good dad, and he's blown me away.

Seeing the sweet bond that they have already makes me even more excited to see how it develops as she gets older.
We're both lucky to have him.
