Dear Katie's Auntie,
Translation…by family your husband means himself. He feels that he is not your number one. Since his nephew and niece are not nearby pay more attention to them through telephone, email, notes and cards. Most importantly, make him feel that he comes first in your heart and give him “special attention treats” before and after seeing Kayla. Keep in mind that he may also fall in love with her as she gets older and can relate to him through activities and games. Many men feel at a loss with young children.
You can give this connection a jump start by leaving them alone to forge their own relationship and under no circumstances criticize him about his behavior with Katie.
