    I haaate number 3!! He's decked out in blue with footballs on his onesie yet I got asked how old she is. I wanted to ask the lady if she was blind.

    "Thank you so much. No matter what, nothing is possible without you behind the scenes bustin heads and takin names. Thank you again. Everything you have done for me means a lot and nothing has gone unnoticed. I love you so much and thank you for saying 'I do.'"

    I'm right there with you.

    I literally would dress Landon in as many boyish colors as possible and people constantly commented on what a beautiful little girl he was

    Yesterday when DH and I were waiting for MIL to get off work, we had this convo with a woman
    Her: Your little girl is so cute. What is her name?
    Us: His name is Cameron.
    Her: Aww! How old is she?
    Us: HE is 9 1/2 months old.
    Her: She's really got that standing thing down, huh?
    Us: Yup.

    We just gave up.

    Oh, and he was wearing blue overalls.

    All so true. Add in "when are you having another?" I don't know how many people within the first couple months were asking when we would start trying again. Yeah, gee, had a traumatic end of pregnancy and delivery, I need to forget about that for a while first, thank you.

    Yeah, I had a few coworkers touch my belly and ask me if I was pregnant again when I was about 2-3 months PP

    Jason and I just looked at each other like . We figured if she wanted to think he was a girl, we'd let her. It's not like we knew her/would ever run into her again. I was just amazed that even after all the he/him pronouns she didn't pick up on the fact that Cameron has a penis.
