that one time I cried over oatmeal

I can now add oatmeal to the list of things that have made me cry. What is it about motherhood that makes you so emotional about the simplest things?! As you know, I'm a big documenter of moments. It's what my style of photography is all about.  I decided one day, it was time to let Kit try out the feeding himself with the spoon. I gleefully watched as he happily accepted the spoon and began to feed himself. He was elated to be in charge of his own meal. When he was done, I reached in to clean him up and get him out of the seat, but he cried and snatched away...not ready for the experience to be over.  So, I refilled his bowl and left him to his newfound independence. Then, I looked at the photos and cried. I never knew oatmeal could be so beautiful.
