Matchy Matchy

When I first met Eric he was going through a serious gothic phase (black on black, on black with black hair), but when we started dating he was going through a mostly vintage Adidas  phase. What can I say? It was the 90s. It was Eric...explained.

While we were at a 2nd hand children's store a few weeks back Eric found a tiny vintage baby Adidas suit and he had to get one for Elise There weren't any in Cordelia's size, trust me he checked, or she would have had one too.

We confused the world at large with what translated as a boy outfit (don't get me started, don't even get me started). One lady spotted Elise in the store later in the day and said, "What a pretty little guy."

Ha ha that's great! I love the last photo :). Caitlin wears alot of Aidan's clothes, even a navy blur snowsuit. I just go with the boy comments now.

My little boy was OFTEN confused for a girl. My daughter less so. I used to get SO mad. And my dear firend, Kel, has a boy who is 5 months younger than SONshine, so when we'd go out people always assumed the boys were twins. I encouraged this.

This is awesome. My daughter often gets mistaken for a boy, even when she's sporting hot pink attire. People are strange. You have the cutest family.

My son was confused as a little girl too because he had such a doll face with the long curly blond locks... I would try explaining to people he is a boy, and offered them proof, when they asked "Are you sure?" But they always politely refused... Ha Ha!

I am not bothered by confused gender. Elise doesn't know if she is a boy or a girl yet and most infants only look like boy/girl when they are dressed in traditional colors.

Oh yes, Maria Rose, I feel you sister. I'm a first time mama of a 4 month year old girl, and I purposefully dress Melody in blues/greens/browns. The feminist in me is unable to put her in pinks all the time. Just 'cuz she's a girl, doesn't mean she has to be a delicate flower! Girl will decide for herself. Perhaps it comes as no surprise that I grew up playing ice hockey rather than figure skating! Melody is free to do either, both, or neither, by the way! :)

By the way, Melody Olive was born exactly a month after Elise, and we are a vegan family, too! Love your posts, particularly the one about changing your inner dialogue and accepting yourself for the sake of your growing girls. Love from Wilmington, NC.

Caitlin! I am right with you. I was shocked when my oldest decided that pink was her FAVORITE. Oh well, that is fine too!---NC? My brother and s-i-l live in Durham!---Thanks for the compliments!

Please tell me you laid Elise on a piece of flattened cardboard and spun her around a bit. Then acted out a scene from "Breakin' 2." Perhaps her first words will be the opening line to "Rapper's Delight?"
