So. . . when's the last time you two went out. . . on a date. . . without baby? ? Not so long ago, you were blissfully in love, able to head out for a night on the town whenever you wanted. And now? Leaving the house together (especially without your little one) can feel overwhelming. But, we promise, it's worth it. New parenthood taxes a relationship, which is all the more reason to take intentional time to bond as a couple. Bonus points if you can avoid talking about how cute your baby is the whole time, since you already know the answer = super cute.
P.S. Babyproof your marriage with Motherly. Our 'Love It' video class was made to help new parents deal with the relationship stresses that emerge when baby is born. (Debates over housework, child care + alone time, anyone?) 20 video lessons, an interactive workbook, and weekly activity prompts will help bring you closer as a couple as you become a family. ?
Baby this week: Your baby is starting to develop object permanence, the knowledge that objects (like mama) exist even when out of view. Try this: embrace baby's emerging skill with games like Guess Which Hand (yep, it's exactly what it sounds like), Hide-and-Seek with toys, and Peek-a-Boo books.
