Lately it seems that every where I go, I have to correct people on Lily being a GIRL and not a boy!
I know that she does look like a boy at times, I mean, she looks just like her dad but, just because she’s not dressed in pink dresses with ruffles, it doesn’t mean that she is a boy!
People on the street: “QUE LINDO!”
People on the street: “QUE PRECIOSO!”
Sales associate at a store: “He’s going to be such a lady killer. Look at those eyes!!”
Me: “Well, she’s a lady herself.”
Sales person: “Oh.”
Me: “But I guess she can still turn out to be a lady killer, right?”
Sales person: ———-(silence)
So, last night for uncle Darren’s birthday dinner I wasn’t going to take any more chances. I dressed Lily in her pretty pink babyGap dress that avo Hayes gave her.
Not only was she wearing a pink dress but, I also put pink shoes on her as well! Lily wants us to help her walk all the time now so it’s time to put those little feet in shoes (as much as she hates it!). Our friend Rikki had given her a pair at my baby shower and they fit Lily perfect!
So there she was all pretty in pink (if I can say so myself). Behaving oh so well….
After uncle Darren opened his gift, I put the crafty ribbon on Lily’s head as a headband. It’s a tradition of mine to make somebody (usually me) wear the ribbons from the presents (can’t let them go to waste!).
Pink dress, pink shoes, headband….a girl was born!!!
I didn’t hear “LINDO” or “PRECIOSO” once last night. Instead, I heard: “LINDA!” and “PRECIOSA!”
