Silly...but it's how I felt

Stone and I had our first night out and about on Saturday.....without Mr. Henry....he stayed at Mimi and Grandpa's house (my parents).

(note: both of us have been away from the wee one separately, but never together)

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at one of our most favorite local restaurants, then we stopped by a friends 30th birthday party.

Since Mr. Henry has arrived I have had a silly secret fear.

I'm afraid that Stone will get bored with me and our life together since we can't just get up and go do fun things at a moments notice like we used to. I'm afraid that he will sort of 'blame' me for the loss of spontaneity since technically I brought the wee one into this world....even though it took the both of us to make him.

I know it is absurd, but in my post-baby state of mind this is what I was feeling.....

On the way home from our date night Stone turned to me and said:

"I had a really nice time tonight at dinner just the two of us and seeing our friends....but I have as much fun (if not more) just sitting at home with you and Henry."

Silly me.

My post-baby state of mind forgot what a wonderful person I married.

PS: I just found this picture of Mr. Henry moments after he was born.....and I fell in love all over again.
