Last night I watched the video of Penelope's birth for the first time. It only lasts about 18 minutes and includes parts of labor and pushing - the pushing stage starts as her head is starting to come out.
It wasn't as hard to watch as I imagined. I wasn't as loud ad I thought! I did cry a little, but that was when Penelope finally came out... remembering the moment when we first "met" always makes me a little teary.
I was initially opposed to having the birth on film, but now I'm glad that Bryan charged the camera and Kaleem set it up on the dresser to capture the birth. It's really an amazing experience, and now I can guarantee that I won't forget a moment of it!
If I get brave enough, I may try and post some of the video...
Oh! And I took cute video of Penelope 'talking' last night - once Bryan shows me how to upload it then I'll post it for everyone to see, it's super cute!!!
