So next weekend is my hubby and i's 1st anniversary, we have a 7 1/2 month old and no babysitter, so our options are kindof limited. My husband works really hard to take care of us and its been kindof a tough transition for both of us in our new roles,(me SAHM and him sole provider), so i want to do something nice for him, and its his birthday 3 days after our ann. Anyone have some ideas of how we could celebrate? or something i could do for him to say i love you and thanks? All while babys in tow? Thanks

Chinese take away with candle light after babes in bed, we did this for our fourth anniversary when our eldest two were three and 20 months, though we were joined by our second who toddled down the hall from her room on scenting the food, we blew out the candle sat her in the middle of the table and fed her from our plates while we ate :) memorable, the following year we knew enough people to get a baby sitter.
One year I bought HIM roses for our aniversary one for each year we had been married at that point!

When my kid was 7 1/2 months we used to take him out for dinner to nice places and rock him to sleep while we had our first drinks/entrees and then he'd sleep the rest of the time we were there.

For our second we went to a Bavarian villiage and spent the day looking through shops, museums, and had a nice dinner out. At that point our daughter was about the same age. She did great. It was nice to feel like we were getting away.

We do picnics in the living room by candle light after the kids are asleep sometimes I would cook others we would order pizza or run to a favorite restaurant and get take out., When they were babies we also just took them with us. Good luck

Well you can still take a baby to dinner at that age and be able to have a nice conversation (gets a little more complicated when your two year old is running away from the table). You could also have a candle light dinner after you put the baby to bed. My first wedding anniversary my son was 2 weeks old and I was recovering from a c section. We ordered pizza and opened up a bottle of wine from our wedding. Not the most romantic. But making a nice dinner and maybe watching a movie together works when you can't do anything else.
