His name is Adeline.
Last night we were eating at our favorite Thai place and the owner saw Adeline in her car seat and said "What a cute little boy! How old is he?" Now, this is not the first time this has happened, and I'm sure it won't be the last. She doesn't always wear pink and she doesn't always have barretts or bows in her hair. Last night she was wearing green so I don't blame her for thinking she was a boy.
So, not wanting to embarrass her, I just answered "5 months". She cooed at her a bit and then asked "What's his name?" Oops. Adeline isn't a very masculine name. If it were Kelly or Jordan or Chris we'd have been fine, but if I told the truth, she'd know she'd guessed the wrong gender. I glanced at Col and was about to make up a boy's name when Col said "She's a girl." Awkwardness ensued.
