Yesterday was our first Monkey Music class. I've been looking forward to it since we booked it, as both babies really respond to music. Granny Jill and Poppa gave E and A the money for the classes plus a CD and these cute mini monkeys for Christmas, so we were prepared. And we were extra lucky as we had my friend Kelly staying for a couple of days so she was able to come along and hold a baby.
Unfortunately Miss E decided that, despite having had a really good lunchtime nap every day for the last week, yesterday she just didn't fancy it! The class was in the afternoon, so everything hinged on the babies having a good sleep. After a feed and a bit of a play she settled down for another nap so we were relieved.
Miss E was grizzly as soon as we arrived so I took her, and Auntie Kel and Mr A teamed up. E cried in between songs but quietened down during every song. The class was called Rock 'n' Roll and we sang songs with actions, played with instruments and listened to rhymes. Mr A absolutely loved it and was laughing from the first song. E was a bit overwhelmed but she did crack a smile eventually! I really enjoyed it, and am looking forward to next week's class already.
