After you have a baby, there are a lot of ‘firsts’. Most of the firsts are about your baby (first word! first tooth! first steps!), but there are plenty of personal firsts as well. One of those is the first date sans baby. We went on our ‘first date’ on my 28th birthday, and even though we were just down the street from our apartment, it still felt completely magical. We took that night to get to know each other all over again, asking first-date questions, and flirting like we were teenagers. I got a little tipsy, and after we were done eating we had a couple of friends join us for drinks. When we were finished, we all walked back to our apartment where my parents were having their own little date night babysitting our daughter (who was asleep pretty much the whole time). It was the perfect way to start the 28th year of my life.
