Oh no!

So, today I decided to splurge and buy a loaf of bread from Great Harvest. While I was there, an old lady started fawning over James (as old ladies are wont to do). She thought he was adorable, especially when he smiled at her, so she called her granddaughter (presumably) over to see him too. She gestured for her to come over and said, "Look at the cute baby! Isn't she cute?!"

SHE! The old lady thought James was a GIRL! She kept going on and on about what a cute little girl he was! Paul is going to be horrified. ;) Yeah, I know this happens all the time, but it was the first time for me! I don't know why she thought he was a girl...he's wearing a blue and white outfit with helicopters and planes on it, and he had a blue blanket on top of him.

Old ladies crack me up!


This is what James does when I take out the camera lately. Ha ha ha.

James definitely looks like a boy...maybe she was partially blind?

Haha, I think James looks like a boy as much as Becca looks like a girl. I don't know why people can get confused sometimes. Is that a new toy James is playing with? I like his expression. I can't wait to see you guys in 2 weeks!

I'm going to weigh and say that James looks like a very, very cute baby and that gender can be hard to distinguish. However, that is why people buy boy babies BLUE blankets and shirts with HELICOPTERS on them. It's also why I hesitantly ask about gender if they're dressed in green and yellow or something.

Sad.

It's like that Princess Diaries book where Peirin or whatever is a girl. I didn't spell that right.
