  • Surely just being together on this special day is enough?

  • We never felt limited when our kids were young. We took them anywhere and everywhere, for breakfast lunch or dinner.

  • That is so lovely for you. We had our first beautiful bub after we were married 9 months and 3 weeks . that was 45 years ago and I am pretty sure my darling mum baby sat for a few hours and we went out for a quiet romantic dinner.

  • Depending on if you were prepared to have a sitter.

    If you do have a sitter over night, book a romantic night away! Have some hubby & you time. 1 year anniversary is important because its the first. You & your hubby deserve to celebrate it. Treat yourselves!

    If you have a sitter for only a few hours, go out for dinner! Go out & enjoy a lovely meal together then if you have time go see a movie or go bowling. Or even take a walk around your town just enjoying time with one another.

    If you can’t get a sitter, make your anniversary a family affair! Go out for lunch with bub. Take a walk as a family. Have a picnic.
    & when you get home & bubs is asleep don’t forget to take some time together.
    It’s your first anniversary, enjoy it :)
    & congratulations.

  • Pre children we would go out to dinner so we swapped this for lunch and baby stayed in the pram

  • My hubby and I were the same and we decided we wanted to leave the house, so we booked a table at a nice restaurant not far from our home. Our baby was so good, he slept almost through the whole meal.

  • i hope your night was fun

  • I’m glad you asked this question! Our son will be 5 months at our 1st anniversary. Some
    Great answers here

  • I would ask a parent to babysit and maybe go out to dinner and a movie, if that isn’t an option then do it all at home, order some takeout and a movie

  • We had a “takeaway” chinese picnic in the lounge room, my bub was 3 weeks old. So still no wine becasue of breast feeding but i did have chocolate. We put out a rug dimmed the lights and put on music, was wonderful till bub woke up, we still laugh about it

  • Probably still too small to take your son along, I can only think of having a modest celebration at home. After all, celebrating a wedding anniversary does not need to be extravagant, it just needs to be special and having a child is already that and more.

  • Maybe a dinner cruise for you both or even a lovely romantic getaway I know scoopon has some fantastic deals maybe check there site out.

  • Romantic getaway, have a look on scoupon and Groupon those sort of sights you can even get 5-7 course meals very cheap!! :)

  • If you don’t have anyone to babysit, have a quiet night at home with a DVD and a good meal.

  • Quite night at home with some take away and maybe a movie or something that interests you both once bubs is asleep :)
