Eleanor's Birth Video


A more nostalgic (and shorter...e.g. 29 hours into 3 minutes) version of the arrival of our darling firstborn. Rated PG. (ok...maybe PG-13...I'm in the tub but you don't see anything...although believe me I was stark naked by the end of the birth and didn't give a hoot about it)








Yes it took 10 months to finish it -- but now I can look at the footage and not feel the contractions/pressure waves/ infant skull-crushing against my backbone and pelvis-labor. Now I just cry and get excited for the next one. :-)

Lovely video, and you seriously looked gorgeous during and after the birthing process. Beautiful family Mocha and Brit!

Oh my goodness that was perfect! I love the whole feeling of that video- Michael talking to the camera, the quiet background with the music, you looking GORGEOUS. Seriously, from the looks of that video you make childbirth look like a breeze (and I know it was far from that for you!). You're amazing and Eleanor will cherish this video forever. Thanks for the reminder that David needs to get the ball rolling on Oliver's second video. The first one was birth-6 months and now he's almost 2! Maybe we'll just give up on his and start working on Hudson's. :) Miss you guys so much.

This video just turned me into such a butterball! When you look into the camera and say, "I have a baby," my heart melted and then I cried aloud (Jared is still at work, so I wasn't made fun of). Side note: Did you labor in a freaking AMY BUTLER hospital gown? Because you would. You really would. LOVED IT.
