Falling in love pre-babies

You think everything about your partner is amazing. You spend every spare minute together. You realise you both use the same brand of toothpaste and decide you must be soul mates. 

Falling in love post-babies

You have made tiny humans together. You fall in love with them more each day and watch in amazement as they smile, laugh or sit up for the first time. You are sharing intense experiences and seeing new sides of each other. While there may be fewer flowers and less sex; raising children is by far the most romantic thing you have ever done together.
