From Heather: I think my husband is crazy adorable, he's good with our kids, treats me like a princess and supports all my "wacky" parenting decisions. He is the first to tell someone why we chose not to circumcise, or why I was breastfeeding our toddler. He never gets sick of airplane rides on his feet, or playing pretend with action figures — and he'll oblige our 1-year-old and pass the ball back to him for the "eight hundredth" time that night.

But the biggest reason my husband stands apart as a dad is that I have never, never, had to get up in the middle of the night with a baby, or even early in the morning. Even in the every two-hours-breast-feeding-days, he would get up, bring me the baby, and put the baby back to sleep when I was done. Isn't that amazing?
