    “They have to sew your pachina back on.” I LOVE IT. I mean, sort of, I didn’t love it when they sewed mine back on.
    So cute, thanks for sharing!

    With a 5-wk old baby, I too still remember (pretty vividly) the sewing back up of the pachina. Too funny! (And not funny at all… at the same time…)

    That is too funny!! I’m so glad it “doesn’t hurt” and the baby just “slides” out. I wish my 3 labors happened that way. :)

    “They have to sew your pachina back on”. I always wondered what took so long… LOL. Thanks for the chuckles.

    My pachina is not looking forward to being sewn back on after I have kids. I didn’t know it came completely off!
    But seriously, G is the cutest and if I lived near you, I’d volunteer myself to be the Official Hang Out With Gabby Person when you guys have stuff to do (babysitter just seems wrong because she’s obviously too cool for one of those).

    I think your daughter is about the cutest person I’ve ever seen in my life. Ack! So cute! I love her drawing. Also your catcher mitt hand.

    The diagram is hysterical. That’s EXACTLY how I remember childbirth — except where is the doula, cowering in the corner under the onslaught of my howling profanities, and the husband, cracking inappropriate jokes??

    Too cute! I think she’s around the same age as my daughter…the things she says never cease to amaze me! If only the babies really just slid out…lol

    LOL at the “he has to sew your pachina back on.” No, baby, that’s just what it FEELS like. I may actually have to watch this twice because for the first 30 seconds I was utterly distracted by headband envy.
    I mean, for my DAUGHTERS. I wanted it for THEM. Yeah. That’s it.

    Oh man…. I am not even a kid person but if I could have one JUST LIKE HER I would sign up tomorrow. That is probably the cutest/funniest thing I’ve ever seen :)

    You are both adorable. Now I have to go the E.R. and have my pachina sewn back on. It fell off from laughing!!! Precious!!

    I’m brand new here, but this was absolutely darling!
    Pachina. LOL.
    They had to sew mine back on too, I’m glad they did. :-)

    Oh man, I “wondered” how that happened. I mean, they CUT your pachina? I love it!!!

    Love that comment about sewing your pachina back in! Too cute! Thanks for getting the scoop!

    I’m due to have a(nother) baby in October. I’m SO glad we had this discussion about pachinas because my first baby came out through my belly. She’s SO cute!!

    And THAT, dear cyberspace people, is why my husband and I don’t have children. I’m not a huge fan of eggs and don’t want one to crack INSIDE of me. Nor do I want my pachina cut open so much that it has to be sewn BACK ON!
    Petty cool though that her hair went from “two little sharp thingies” (is it just me or does she make it sound like horns?) to how it looks today, LOL!

    My headphones broke a few days ago so I couldn’t listen to things on the computer all that well. I bought a new set and purposely saved this post in my Google Reader for when the new headphones came in.
    They came in today and was this ever worth the wait! OMG!!!!! LOVE HER. LOVE. I love the dramatic faces while she’s talking the most. Reminds me of one of my nieces.

    I’ve learned a new word today….! Pachina. lol.
    “They have to sew your pachina back on” LOL!
    Thats too funny!
