Husband doesn't speak my language

I just found your group and am really excited.
I speak ~ 3-3.5 languages (English, Farsi, French, and Spanish). My husband speaks 1 (English). I have been VERY inconsistent about speaking Farsi to my daughter who is now almost 2.
I would like her to learn to speak Farsi, at least a little bit and I know that I just need to use it with her more consistently. My problem/question is:
How do I do this if it makes my husband uncomfortable? He is worried about feeling left out if all 3 of us are home and I am speaking to my daughter and he does not understand whta we are saying. Do I just tell him to get over it?
Do I speak to her in English if he is around? Won't this make learning the language harder for her?
Also, my Farsi is not spectacular. What do I do if there are words that I do not know? I guess go and look them up?
Thanks for any advice!
