ok so i LOVE lena for being willing to brave uncensored, unmedicated birth with me. she was stellar and so ridiculously helpful that i might not have survived the post-birth craziness with my sanity/extended family still intact without her. seriously. for as much as i make fun of her, she is a champion of efficiency, loyalty and hilarity. i am a-okay with layla turning out just like her (tear).
and before you think i am getting mushy, here comes the part where i throw lena back under the bus. what she didn't mention in the photo of the freshly born layla in the previous post was that she totally knew the neonatal nurse who told--or in lena's words "yelled at,"-- her to turn off the camera while she was giving layla oxygen (it's hospital policy, p.s., which is why you aren't supposed to video the actual birth either).
so when lena realizes this nurse,--about whom she was probably thinking many mean things in her head-- is actually a friend, she is so startled out of her pout-fest that she forgets to turn off the camera, so we have priceless video footage of their hilarious encounter to make the moment last forever. please listen and enjoy. i freaking love it. love the nurse, love lena, love the awkward. there is also some 2 minutes old layla action thats pretty cool here too.
