Alaska: I love your your soft skin, fluffy hair, little eager hands wanting to touch everything and the way you kick your little legs and splash in the bath. Your so amazingly pure and fresh to the world.

Ps. Here you are at around 1 month old in the bath! I cannot believe how little you were.

Alaska: You are absolutely loving food! I planned to introduce you to solids at 6 months, but at 5.5 months we could not stop you from grabbing at our food. So far you have had avocado, banana, pumpkin, potato, carrot, pineapple, apple, oats, strawberry, spaghetti, egg yolk, broccoli, watermelon and coconut yoghurt. You love anything you can hold yourself and you're not so interested in Mumma or Papa spoon feeding you, which means a lot of mess! But we are having so much fun.

Alaska: Your Nanny (Great Grandmother) passed away at the end of July. It was very sad to see such a wonderful woman leave us. When you were a month old we flew up to Queensland to visit her and we had not seen her so happy in a long time. You bought her so much joy! We flew up to celebrate her life and stayed an extra day to spend some time together as a family. Here is Uncle Ash, Dan and Jonathan, Aunty Sarah, Grammie, you and Poppy having brunch.

Alaska: All of a sudden you are a big baby with so much personality! Sitting up, touching everything and interacting with everyone. It was like one day we woke up and 
 you weren't so little anymore.

Monthly update: 2 months

Only three months late, I am catching up slowly on your growth posts!

At two months, Alaska is too aware for her own good. She is so easily distracted and always wants to know what's going on. She went through a big growth spurt and had a phase where she refused to feed unless the conditions were just right (quiet and dim room).
She began offering her smiles up freely this month, bringing us lots of joy. She also discovered her hands a little more and started sucking on them.

Alaska: Getting into the spirit of the World Cup!

Alaska: Waking your Papa up nice and early

Alaska: Celebrating your Great Gran's 70th birthday

Alaska: Enjoying being in the jolly jumper even though you haven't quite mastered jumping yet.

Alaska: This is my favourite photo from our trip to Bali. We spent a lot of time walking and exploring and you were very content to sit in the carrier and observe everything around you.

Alaska: It was very different travelling with you in tow, but we loved having you with us. We can't wait to continue showing you the world.

Alaska: Waiting for our mie goreng in Munduk, Bali and you are happy to just chomp on your finger.
