Amuk is the Inupiaq word for how I'm carrying Harold. It's the traditional way Eskimo folks carry their children around. It works pretty well, in this climate, to be wrapped up together to protect us from the cold arctic air. We didn't do it much last winter because Harold would make such a fuss. However, this year, he's a fan and often asks to be amuked. Doesn't he look so snug and cozy?
