44/52


Alaska: You have learnt to crawl and you love to follow us around the house. You are happy to sit on the floor of the kitchen, with a snack in your hand and watch us as we make dinner, occasionally crawling under the table and exploring all the nooks and crannies.

Alaska: I love wearing you close and watching you as you watch the world.

Alaska: You are eight months old and utterly irresistible!

Alaska: No one can make you laugh like your Aunty Holly. Every time you see her you light up and smile and just wait for her to do something crazy. Lately she has taught you to scream at the top of your lungs and you two have shrieking matches!

Alaska: I don't know where I'd be without my sling. There are so many days where you are feeling cranky and just want to be close to me. I pick you up, pop you in and go about my business as usual with you on my hip. I love having you close to me, right where you belong.

Alaska: You have learnt to wave! You flap your little arm up and down with a huge smile on your face and it is the cutest thing.

Alaska: 

“i do not expect my child’s respect.
just because i have given birth to their life.
does not mean they owe me.
anything.
what i want most
is to look into my child’s eyes
and
see
that i have given birth
to
a
heart.
have
honored.
held and feed.
someones
heart.
from the moment we first met.
and
they love me for it.”
