Sharing Cheerios by Bethany Deschamp

we are getting to that point where she is starting to hand things to us and has learned to share, especially with food.  there is nothing more hilarious to her than when she extends food to me in her little hand and i, quite dramatically, munch it out of her little grasp and lightly nibble on her fingers in the process.  my overly dramatic “yum yum yum” and “thank you, baby!” is completely thrilling to her.  of all things, sharing cheerios is one of her favorites.

when thinking about how i wanted to document her childhood before she was born, i knew that i really wanted to photograph the everyday moments.  the little routines and things that, at the time may seem ordinary, but in the years ahead would be looked back upon fondly.  our mornings together were on that list of things i really wanted to document, especially now that she is feeding herself and i can, sometimes, sit next to her and enjoy a breakfast (a.ka. large cup of coffee to myself).  but to be honest, most mornings find her eating in her highchair while i unload the dishwasher and fill up 6 bottles of milk to get us through the day.  while rubbing my tummy, patting my head, and balancing on one foot.  you know, motherhood.  and the effects of caffeine.

regardless, these are the moments that truly define motherhood.  these are the photos i want to look back on, as they will take me right back to these ordinary moments that feel extraordinary to me.
