December Meeting

By Lauren B.

Thank you to those of you that were able brave the snowy weather for our December meeting. For those of you that opted to stay nice and warm at home with your little ones, no worries! You can try out this month's carry with the video below. "Christina's Ruckless Back Carry," demonstrated by Jillian D. at the meeting, can be used with a size 4, 5, or 6 woven wrap. 

Happy wrapping! Hope to see you all at the next meeting in the new year. Have a wonderful holiday with your families.

A Goodbye and a Hello!

Paula R. here.  January will mark the one year since I've started writing posts for the group blog.  And it's been mostly fun, although a bit of work.  January is also when my one and only child will be turning three.  She hasn't wanted to be worn very much at all since turning two.  She's fierce, independent and will not be contained!  I'll also be moving from Colorado, likely sometime within the next month, so come January, the blog is officially out of my hands.  I do have a few post that are still in the works; I'll likely be giving them to Jillian D. to put up for me, but overall, my stint here is just about over and this is my one month's notice!  

Lauren B. has already started stepping up to contribute posts.  We also have a few other members who will likely be chipping in here and there.  For those of you who have yet to meet Lauren, here is her bio below:

My name is Lauren and I have a 7 month old son, Jacob. My husband, Justin, and I are originally from Southern California. We have been married a little over 8 years and moved to Colorado Springs 3 years ago after he finished his army career. Before I was a stay at home mom, I was teaching German on Fort Carson at the Special Forces Language School. I love to try new recipes, do crafty things, spend time outdoors on Colorado trails and get to know other mommas who are in the wonderful thick of it! I look forward to getting to know all of you ladies!

Where We Wore in November

December Meeting

Our monthly meeting will be taking place the 4th of December, starting at 10:30 at the Casa Verde Common House (the green building).  The Carry of the Month is Christina's Ruckless Backless Carry, so if you have a wrap size 4-6, that would work great!  Jillian D. says this is a great carry for those who aren't fond of ruck straps or have leg straighteners.

If you plan on borrowing a carrier from our lending library, please take the time to read our Lending Library policy.
