Last year's anniversary, we celebrated in Niagara Falls with a weekend stay at Doubletree Hotel by Hilton. I was six months pregnant and round as a ball. We spent the days shopping, gambling, watching the live UFC event, and enjoyed a couple's massage. Although there were three of us, technically we only had to do what two of us wanted.

This year we wanted something even more low-key and relaxing. The baby was a factor, but also our week-long New York trip had exhausted us and we needed a few days to relax.

This year we celebrated with an outing to Vaughan Mills (large outlet mall in Ontario, Canada) and surprisingly, my husband was the only one who came out with anything. Perhaps I was holding back because I had done all my shopping in the U.S. outlets! We attended afternoon mass so we could have a slower-paced Sunday morning. It began to rain so we ordered pizza and watched movies at home. Although not a typical Saturday night date (we spent more time playing with Hannah than watching the movie), it was fun. Got a much needed night's rest for an eventful Sunday.

I had a lot of babysitting offers to watch Hannah while my husband and I went out on our own, but for us, we didn't mind. It seemed natural to have her come out with us. We know we'll have chances in the future to go out without Hannah. We also know that there will be a day where she'll want to go out WITHOUT us. Until then, our fun twosome has become an unseparable threesome.

Ah, how a baby changes everything . . . how about you? How did you celebrate your first anniversary with a baby?
