That is a good idea, Yunus. Still, she won't be able to stop thinking about the little one for a while, so expect phone calls and/or texts while she is out with her friends. A baby is a life and relationship changer like nothing else in the world. Just keep being a good husband and involved father, and things will come naturally. I firmly believe that new mothers feel more stress than new fathers (if that is actually possible). If you can swing it, buy her some time at a spa where she can get pampered a bit. Then play that into some range time for your own pampering.
The worst thing the two of you can do is to forget your individuality and smother eachother and the baby. It is tough to do, but it is possible. Keep in mind that your wife comes first and foremost. It is easy to get lost in the realm of parenting. Never ever take your wife for granted as it is the love in your relationship that led to the parenthood. The baby does not care where the love and security comes from, so that is a constant. The relationship between you and your wife is not a constant.

Skullcrusher, you are evil, sick, demented, twisted- and my hero!
