Alaska: I love the peacefulness of your sleep. I often stare at you in these moments and shake my head in disbelief about how perfect you are. I can't believe you came from me and your Papa. Being a Mum is the most challenging thing I've ever done, especially when you have woken so often at night that I have had only a few hours sleep for months at a time, but it is so worth it. I pour everything into you and it is so hard and wonderful and so right. You complete me.


Alaska: I adore this picture! It was taken at your Aunty Sarah and Uncle Jonathan's wedding. You and your Aunty Holly have such a close bond and it makes me smile.

Alaska: Your Uncle Jonathan and Aunty Sarah got married and it was such a wonderful day!


Alaska: It's heating up and you are teething, so I have been giving you popsicles made of frozen almond milk and your face says it all!

Alaska: There are only 6 weeks left of this year and of this 52 portrait project. You are such a big girl now. You have taken a liking to your Teddy and light up when you see him, giving him kisses and cuddles.


Alaska: Flowers bloom at the front of our house. Next year we will be moving from this house, where we bought you home from the hospital and where so many memories were made.

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.
