Featuring Katie Evans, CSV
Hello fellow babywearers, my name is Katie Evans. I am a Chapter Support Volunteer for BWI of Manhattan Kansas. My plan is to continue my knowledge and achieve Volunteer Babywearing Educator to be able to teach babywearing.
A little about me, I got married in 2014 to my husband Ray and started cosmetology school. While in school I got pregnant with my son Easton, who is now a year old. Having a rough pregnancy gave me a lot of time to think about what I wanted when baby arrived. I had been talking to my aunt and uncle who are also babywearing parents. They bought my first carrier, a Brave Tula, before Easton was born. Our babywearing journey started at around 3 months when I came to my first meeting.
I didn't think we were wearing correctly but after reassurance, we were good to go. We soon decided to get our first woven wrap and although at first I got frustrated and honestly hated wrapping I have grown to love it. My personal collection has grown a lot since the beginning.
Some of my hobbies include crocheting, sewing, cooking, photography, baking, and being outside. I self taught myself how to crochet 2-3 years ago. I have been cooking since the age of 3. when I was mixing my moms birthday cake on the kitchen floor with out a bowl. You could say cooking has become my life as I now am a cook at a nursing home, and I am very passionate about it.
If there is anything you would like to know about me feel free to ask I'll be happy to answer.
