DH is affectionate. I love that they always want to cuddle with him and hang off him. It's so cute :)

He's pretty affectionate. It took some time for him to be that way, and a lot of me reminding him that kids need affection from him just as much as me but he's gotten there. Affection from his father wasn't something he grew up with. His father was at times abusive and his mom never seemed to have much time for him, so how to be an affectionate and attentive parent was something he had to learn.

 He will pick up our 18 month old and hug and kiss him a few times a day, mostly when he gets home from work or if he is leaving or if our son is going to bed, but I wouldn't call him affectionate really, he's not that way with the older 2 (they are 7 1/2 and 4), he hugs them and kisses them before bed or if they are leaving but that's it, he does spend quality time, playing games, taking them hiking and playing with them in the pool and watching movies with them though, he is a great dad...I forsee him being the same way with our 18 month old once he reaches a certain age.

Absolutely. I love seeing DH being affectionate toward our 21 month old DS and vice versa.

That's sad :( Affection is so important for children. Thankfully he's more affectionate with your children!!
