Saturday, the Kiddo and I decided to pop in on Dad at Our Time rehearsal. Things were starting to heat up creatively and the company members were really in the songwriting zone. In the following picture, Kiddo is in Chelsea's arms, attentively watching Dad hold it down on the djembe. That guy with the camera is Mark, and he's working on a documentary film about the theatre company...
Here's the company hard at work on their "HipHopera":
...and here's the Kiddo chillin' with Ned and Chelsea...
After the workshop, T and I decided to make the trek down to Soho for dinner at one of our all-time favorite places, Ghenet. We are huge fans of Ethiopian cuisine and it had been nearly six months since our last visit, so we couldn't wait. Since the staff had not seen us since I gave birth, they all flipped out about Kiddo. As a matter of fact, after our food came, he was whisked away and they all took turns carrying him around the restaurant, showing him off and enjoying him. It was the first meal T and I have eaten by ourselves in a restaurant since early June. It was fun, although we were pretty distracted watching our little guy hold court! By the end of the night he had made friends with half the room and had scored an adorable baby-sized Ghenet t-shirt. Here he is with a few of his fans:
This morning we took off for Westchester to hang out with the Kiddo's cousins. Here's an adorable picture of my gorgeous hubby and baby waiting for the train.
Once we arrived at the cuz's it was non-stop fun. Here's the Kiddo with Aunt Maddie, and cousins Finn and Mac:
And here he is having a blast with Isabelle Moon:
We played fooseball, drew pictures, listened to Digable Planets, ate guacamole, played Isabelle's guessing game, and even watched episode 1 of Project Runway on TiVo (thanks Maddie!)
Back home now, the boys are winding down as I write this. What a weekend!
