None of this negates the simple fact that having a baby gives us much less time with just each other. Most of both of our families are states away. I'd love for one of Sage's grandparents to be close by but that just isn't our reality. Our alone time is limited by our logistics. His sister has been kind enough to give us a couple movie dates and even a whole night alone!
Because we're a party of three more often than not we've had to work on staying connected as a couple. We send each other emails, texts and videos during the day. We also have what we call "Parent's Lounge." Which is our basement after the baby is sleep until we go to bed. We're two floors down from her so we don't have to worry about waking her up. We can watch TV, have a drink, play games and just chill together.
