International Babywearing Week 2012 Wrap-Up

International Babywearing Week 2012 is coming to an end and BWI of CNY had a blast celebrating!  Here's a summary of the week's events:

All week long, babywearers submitted their pictures for a photo contest on Facebook for a chance to win a brand-new Ergobaby Carrier.  Our grand-prize winner is Tina Crowley, for her stunning collage which featured photos of herself, her husband, and her daughter all babywearing.

Honorable mentions went to Matt Gortner for best babywearing dad picture, Bryn Lovejoy-Grinnell for best tandem-wearing picture, and Stephanie Arnold for best child "baby"wearing picture.

Congratulations to all of our winners!

As for in-person events, we started out on Monday, October 8th, with a trip to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnet Park.

Next, on Wednesday October 10th, we hosted a fundraiser at Moe's Southwest Grill.  Babywearers and friends enjoyed some delicious food throughout the day, and a  group of us met for dinner.  We are incredibly thankful to Moe's for their donation of more than $50!!

On Friday, October 12th, a group of us gathered at Destiny USA/Carousel Center for a babywearing mallwalk (with some shopping stops!)

And lastly, our grand finale was a social and fashion show held at Basic Baby on Saturday, October 13th.  Our members and guests took to the mall's hallway to strut our stuff and show off our little ones!

Thanks to everyone who joined us in celebrating International Babywearing Week 2012!
