What's her name? How old is she?
Today he was wearing brown loafers and a navy dress shirt with a collar, and still he gets mistaken for a girl! Anyone else have this "problem"?
And...does this mean I'm getting closer to actually having a girl someday? LOL!

DS's big eyes and long eyelashes get him called a girl all the time. If we're out in town, he's usually on me in a carrier so it not like people can really see his clothes. If someone comments on how pretty/beautiful/cute SHE is, I just smile and say thank you and move on. I'm rarely asked what his name is. A lot of people ask how old he is because they always seem to think he's older. It doesn't really bother me when they think he's a girl. It's a guessing game with bald babies.

I was going to say that Odin gets his girl comments all the time based on lack of hair too. Even when in blazing blue boy gear!
I like your thinking Kaci, maybe it is one step closer!

funniest thing hands down was when Trevor was a baby. We went to Mc donalds at the drive thru and the lady handing us our food said "She has such pretty eye lashes" LMAO! So funny, till this day I think back and laugh. He was dressed up and down in blue too.
Chloe was dressed in a blue onesie with pink writing on it with her hair up in a pony tail, she was called a boy. she had her pink ear rings in too.
I think people just feel like they need to tell you how cute your baby is, without really thinking about what they are saying. I always smile and say thank you. I could see how someone would get annoyed if it happened all the time though.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! I have to say, honestly, 100% I have NEVER had anyone once think Sophie is a boy... they always get it right. HOWEVER, w DD1, she was in a PINK carrier, completely wearing a PURPLE dress, w headband, the whole nine yards, and she was mistaken TWICE in the same day for a boy... LMFAO... I don't know what ppl are thinking these days...
I get, 'Cute baby. Is it a boy or girl?' Even when she is decked out in frilly pink.

I don't mind people mistaking Rowan for a boy. What I do mind is the following conversation that I've had with more than one person:
Person: Oh what an adorable girl. What's her name?
Me: Her name is Rowan.
Person: Sorry, I meant boy. You never can tell, can you? He's adorable.
Really? I know it isn't that common of a name, and I know it's slightly more common for boys, but if I say "her," please believe I'm talking about a girl.
