January has come in with bone-chilling, lung-stabbing, skin-gnawing cold and the dreaded annual flu. Our Saturday meeting was, foreseeably, slow with a severe windchill advisory and right after the holidays. However, we live-streamed our Diaper Stash Giveaway drawing on Instagram and the lucky winner was Melody! Congratulations! And if you didn’t win this time, just keep a lookout for more upcoming giveaways throughout the year. A very special thanks to our donors, including the magnificent Jessica, who donated towards our new Stunt Baby fund (a weighted, jointed, endlessly patient doll to use at our meetings). Click here if you’d like to donate!
And the reason this is being posted now instead of after our regularly scheduled Wednesday meeting: the flu has struck the Iowa City Babywearers. Well, one of us… and her whole family. (They’re the house with the red x on the front door. Quarantined like whoa.) So we’ve had to cancel the meeting, but fingers crossed we will be fighting fit for our next meeting on Feb 3rd!
