Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to my husband! This is a collection of videos my mom recorded on her little camera. I was still in surgery during this… and, I’ve avoided watching these videos because of the feelings it brings up. But, I’m happy I put this clip together. By the way: I totally balled when I watched the final version. I’m happy to have it and share it.

Happy Father’s Day to all you good dad’s out there too!

P.S. I put this together on Animoto.

    Oh my, so sweet. This made me tear up as well!

    I was put under for my c section, too. I didn't get to hold Ruby until I woke up from surgery. I still haven't written about it, but this video really hits close to home for me.

    It's so great that your mom took those videos! It made me tear up and I don't even know her 🙂 Poor babies! Becoming a person is tricky business. Thanks for sharing <3

    Thinking of your story, I totally bawled too. (it could be the pregnancy hormones also.) What a precious gift for your hubby.

    That was so sweet. Oh my goodness what a beautiful newborn she was!!!

  • Sabrina on said:

    Thank you for sharing this! I had a long surgery and recovery after my baby was born so I missed everything.
    I ask my husband all the time what they were doing with the baby while I was in surgery. He just gives me vague details.
    This video was actually really helpful for me to understand what was going on during that time! I worry that I missed
    so much and was so sad I wasn't there to comfort my little guy.

      I was so sad when I first saw these videos 2 years ago, but I'm glad my mom recorded them.

    • Andrea on said:

      same for me! It allowed me to see what was going on while I was still in surgery too. Its nice to see what happens..

  • Sarah on said:

    Oh my. So sweet. I cried too.
