Hello,

The following is a narration from the perspective of a pet hamster.
飼い主と一緒のもの食べられるなんて嬉しいけど、人間のごはんってちょっと口に合わないわ。でも、飼い主は私に小さくちぎったパンを持たせては大喜びで写真を撮るの。……まあっ、悪い気はしないけど。

Does ては mean that the owner is repeatedly giving the hamster bread and then taking pictures? Basically, is it this meaning: 二つの動作・作用などが対になって繰り返される意を表す。(てはの意味 - goo国語辞書)?
