  •  We make sure to use some of her nap time to just hang out, doesnt matter what we do its just good to spend a bit of time paying attention to one another. Also we organise for family to watch her for an hour or two, and go to the movies or out for lunch or dinner. Even when bub is awake, we go for walks together and do the shopping as a family we also send each other little texts and write little notes and we make sure we spoil each other every once in a while with clothes and things like that.  Lizzi
  •  We go out for tea and I make him tea for when he gets home from work. We still go out and do stuff that we use to. The only difference is with a baby. He still has time to himself aswell.  Pepalee
