Oh! What a cute baby boy! Wait, I mean girl. Boy? Girl.


I love my daughter, so very much, and in my eyes, she is so beautiful.

But I know that she looks like a dude. A small dude.

So many times, I’ve been out with my baby and someone approaches me and is like,

“oh my, what a cute baby! What is his name?”

or

“What a handsome fella!”

or

“It’s a boy, right?”

WRONG, person-i-now-dislike, SHE IS A GIRL.

So, to help people out, I’ve started dressing Olive in over-the-top pink ensembles and I almost never, ever, leave the house without her hair accessories. I have SO MANY, it’s a little embarrassing. But, it really helps!

Example:

Here, she looks like a boy:

But here, with an appropriately placed hair accessory, SHE IS NOW A GIRL!

Boy:

Girl!!!!:

Hairclip = GIRL!

Image

Bonnet = Feminine!

Image

GIGANTIC FLOWER AS BIG AS HER FACE = TOTALLY FEMALE!

If you have a baby, and she’s a rather handsome looking girl, just slap on a few hair thing-a-ma-jigs and you’re good to go. And if people STILL think you have a boy….well they can just go to hell.

    ha ha ha ha….well first of all, she’s gorgeous!! :) I get a hard time from people about my daughter always having a hairbow on, but without it, people assume she’s a boy (which befuddles me, since I think she looks quite girly with or without hair accessories). It probably doesn’t help that she has so little hair for her age…

    I stuck to my guns with the hairbows, and now at 20 months, she puts them on herself and asks for them. :)

        We just told her “no” when she went to pull them off, and then praised her for leaving them on. Worked for her, but I know not all baby girls will tolerate them! :)

    hahaha. my hubs shaved my lil girl’s hair (in hopes it’ll grow thicker) the other day so we get the whole “oohhhhh how cute is the BABY” now. totally obvious that ppl have no clue if she’s a boy/girl.
