On October 18th, my daughter was born and I became the mother of three children. Hundreds of miles away, on the same day, another baby girl was born and another woman added the third child to her family. We were complete strangers at that time, but our love of photography and family brought us together. We started to have a conversation about motherhood with images, because we tell stories with our cameras. Since some tales are so similar, and some are not, we decided to collaborate and share a photo a week from a normal day as a mother to three.

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”

― Mary Jean Irion

You keep showing me that all the old things can be new again. Thank you, baby. Photo by Olivia Gatti Facebook :: Website

you are a hand-me-down baby that is for sure.  at any given moment, you are dressed in articles of clothing and shoes that were handed down by your brother and sister.  these were handed down to them as well.  the same goes for your toys, books, nursery furniture, and other gear.  but not this bike.  this one is just for you.  only for you.  happy second birthday my love.
