I’ve started my salsa babies class at the Glebe Community Center. I went on Tuesday and had a lot of fun. You basically have your baby strapped to you as you move to the latin rhythm. I used to take Zumba classes so I already knew the basic steps of merengue, salsa and cha cha but it was much more difficult swaying with a baby. Especially one who kept sliding down because of my cheap structure carrier that we bought before Henry was born. We have a wrap carrier as well that Gillian lent us but Henry doesn’t seem to like it these days and kind of freaks out in it. I was worried that the wrap may not offer enough head support with all the movement going on. So I finally caved and bought the Ergobaby carrier which should be arriving today:

Tuesday was actually a pretty busy day. After Salsa babies I went over to my dad’s who lives 5 minutes away for lunch. We had Thai from Siam Kitchen which is always delicious. I would have stayed longer but both Henry and I were falling asleep, even though Henry slept through most of the salsa class. We came home and took a 2 hour nap which we both needed since he’s kind of regressed in his sleeping a little lately and will wake up a few times a night again instead of just once.

Tuesday night we went to eat at Play, Food & Wine with our friends who were visiting from Senegal. It was a really neat concept of gourmet cuisine in small sampler bites that you can share with everyone at your table . The food was just amazing but I’ve come to expect that from Stephen Beckta. It’s kind of a hip/swanky type place but they greeted our group (and 4 babies) very well.

Yesterday we went to Stars and Strollers with our friends Sandra and Luis to see the movie Bridesmaids. I honestly haven’t laughed so hard while watching a movie in a long time. I had tears rolling down my cheeks I was laughing so hard and accidentally woke up Henry who was  fast asleep on me. I completely recommend seeing this movie. It was so good, I’m tempted to go see it again next week at the Coliseum.

Absolutely Freaking Hilarious

So to not use only stock footage in this post, here’s a few recent pics of Henry.
