Tina, I'm so glad you posted this! We're hoping to get a group photo at the meeting on the 15th to represent our chapter on the BWI website, and we would LOVE to include as many babywearing dads as possible. (And if any dads would like to attend but don't feel comfortable being in the photo, that's okay too!)
On that note, I will soon be sending out "model release" forms that BWI is asking everyone to sign if you or your child appears in any photos taken during International Babywearing Week, to be posted on the BWI website. There is also a photographer release form, and I'm thinking it would be best if everyone signed both in case anyone snaps their own pictures and sends them to me, we'll be covered. Will send those out later today.

I haven't been to a meeting since the very 1st one, last spring - we have a 3 1/2 yr old and just had a little boy on Sept 27th and I'm really hoping to be able to make it to the meeting on 10/15.
I'm hoping to convince my husband to come with me - he's not entirely comfortable with babywearing, but we have unique circumstances with our little boy, which leads me to think my husband will be more likely to babywear.
No need to respond yay/nay, but just thought I'd throw it out there, if anyone else was interested...hubby's might be more willing to come to a shorter meeting too :-)
