Does one prefer you and the other your SO?

Of course, some of you are single moms, so I hope both of yours prefer you!

But with my girls, Ellie is a Click here to enlarge's girl. She will not go to sleep at night without me. And Emma really prefers her daddy. She will go to sleep with me, but dh can get her down much easier.
It makes me feel guilty sometimes because I think that maybe I did something to encourage it. But I think it's because Ellie was the one that nursed the most. So dh tended to take Emma and give her a bottle, while I nursed Ellie.
I worry about one day hearing "You love Ellie more than me" because they kept their parent preferences.
Am I making any sense at all?

The girls are more daddy's girls now. When #3 was born, dh did more with the girls, while I took care of the baby, and it's kind of stuck that way.

Before #3, if I'm remembering right, Arenne favored dh, and Abs me, and that still happens occasionally, but it's pretty even.

We have noticed that they each favor a brother though, which is kind of interesting. Arenne has really played with Drew a lot, and now Abbie is always doing things with Colin. It's even more interesting because Colin is more like Arenne, so far personality-wise, and Drew more like Abbie.

It's pretty even-steven here. I am still nursing them a couple times a day, so I have dh beat by just a smidge because of the boobs. Click here to enlarge DH named one baby and I named the other, so when we started out we'd joke that "you're baby needs to be changed..." etc., but now it's a free for all.

This changes daily. Some days I am the popular one and other days it's my dh. It is kinda funny b/c my oldest ds always asks, "why don't they make up their mind?"

When they were babies they preferred mommy and my milk. When the popularity gets to be a bit much for dh, I kindly remind him of the early days!
