advice to mom's about to give birth: if i could do it again, i would have gotten much more footage of things like: the monitoring machine, the room, the bed, walking the halls, entering the hospital, ricky, my doula betsy, the nurses, etc. i would have had ricky's sister come in every 2 hours or so (or 30 minutes if you don't plan on having a 2 day labor) and just film random things for about 5 minutes. ricky tried to film, but i really needed him fully there and didn't want him distracted. that's why an extra "just to film" person would have been nice and perhaps a list created beforehand of shots to capture. i did get the actual birth on video, but it's not of the "shareable" kind. ;)

  2. i love these little videos you guys are making. yay for your new computer!!!

  3. I started tearing up watching the part where you're just hanging on to Ricky, remembering the words you wrote of your honor, admiration, and need of him. It's beautiful and it makes my heart swell!

  4. so so so so sweet.

    and, your comma at the end is acceptable since you're placing it before a nonessential object. i'm a nerd. love you.
