All Babies are Boys Unless Proven Otherwise

All babies are boys unless proven otherwise. I can tell, because even when I used to dress the Sweet Pea in pink overalls people would ask me how old "he" was.

So you see, this baby has on a little white shirt with grey hearts and a pink butterfly. Yep, she's definitely a boy. Because...grey pants.

But you know what automatically changes any baby suddenly into a girl? Frilly pink head things. So when I put on this sunhat, she's magically a girl:
The problem is, it's hard to wear a frilly hat when you don't really have the whole holding up your head thing down pat yet.

The Guy doesn't like it when I put frilly head things on the baby, but I still do it anyway sometimes.

Because when she's dressed like this:
And even like this with all the flowers...

Everyone asks "How old is HE?" But that just doesn't happen with a frilly head thing.

In other news, all the warning labels are right: the baby's safety device tried to kill me. We got one of those kind of baby monitors that tells you if they stop breathing. The problem is, we get a false alarm or two now and again. Needless to say the first couple of false alarms sent me careening towards the crib, heedless of things in my way. Such as the baby swing. I won't show a picture because...I only rush for the camera when one of the CHILDREN is injured. But, so much for the safety devices keeping us safe.

So that's it from around here - the baby is a girl and her baby paraphernalia, previously happy to just endanger the baby, now has it in for the adults too.

She's too cute! My experience was the opposite though. I used to have my son in overalls and sneakers and would always hear, "What a pretty little girl!" and that was when he was about 7-8 months. I started doing this weird pile his hair on top of his head thing instead of letting it hang down.

That's funny Staci that we had such opposite experiences@ I never had that problem with my boy. He had a hair cut when he was like 7 days old though, so maybe that helped.

Both of my children had peach fuzz hair when infants, so no bows or clips for my daughter. I resorted to hats as well.

When I was a kid and answered the phone, people thought I was my Mom.
I think you gotta guess by shirt color.

Nicki - Even when they have hair, bows and clips are really hard to get and keep in. Hats and those soft little elastic headbands are way better. :-)

Thanks Reds! Next time I'm going to post with the totally pink outfit. I've been told that she looks like a girl but...

You'd think, right Mark? But even when she's head to toe pink, I've had someone ask about "him"!

Thanks Kerry!

I may be the only one who thinks every baby should be a girl, lol.
Yup, those baby safety things are really dangerous. I guess in my area that's why we let them play in the liquor store parking lots, lol.
I thought of you when I saw it, so happy you dropped by to see it :)

Not only is she a girl, but she's the female incarnation of Napoleon!
