Dear World,
Just because I do not have hair, it does not mean I am a boy.
Especially when I am wearing a dress.


Especially a pink dress.
I also am aware that you are concerned that I am not walking yet.
Would you walk if you had people to carry you?
Or big sisters to bring you everything you needed?

No? 
I didn't think so.

See, I've got some things figured out.
I will walk when I decide it is time to walk.
Stop trying to stress me out.
I'm a baby.
Besides, I have got this killer PC keyboard that isn't even attached to a computer to play with.
Check out my mad typing skillz.

Jealous?

Love,
The Bald, Non-walking, Baby Girl-Not a Boy

  2. She is so precious! My girls were mistaken for boys on several occasions even when wearing dresses and with pierced ears!

  5. Ha!! She is the cutest little thing, walking or not walking, bald or not. And I get the "girl" comments with my little man Carter (14 months) when he's wearing a green tractor onesie and brown cargo shorts with brown Converse shoes - or a blue plaid pair of shorts with a robot shirt - people just aren't very observant, I've decided. (He does have a semi mullet as I'm too chicken to cut off his curls!) As far as the walking thing, my oldest daughter didn't take a step until she was 18 months old! My 2nd daughter was 13 months and Carter was only 11 months. They are all so different.

    I love her expression in these pics - too adorable!

  7. That could have been written by my daughter not too long ago. Oh well...My daughter is 2 1/2 and just a few months ago a woman called her a boy, asked her name, when I replied "Jocelyn", she asked, "Justin?". ugh

  8. She is darling! I love her baldy head - as I have pretty, hair challenged 16 month old dollface too (srsly - our girls are only 1 day apart!). I went to Target to find pretzel M&Ms and they are all sold out. LAME! I'm going to another one after naptime. I will find them.

  9. She is adorable and those pictures are to die for! Too pretty to be mistaken for a boy!

  10. oh my goodness you hit the nail on the head with this post! it never failed when we went out, she would be in a pink dress in her pink carseat with a bow in her head and still get called a boy because she was bald...

  12. Oh, she is a cutie!! My daughter would be dressed head to toe in pink and people would always say something like, "Oh, what a cute little fella!" Drove me nuts!

  13. I would be holding her constantly too. She is the cutest!!!

  16. Love it... My kiddos LOVE their unattached keyboard too, and old cell phones, portable phones and remotes... Who needs toys anyway!

  17. *laughs* what a cute post! Considering how many people can relate it's surprising that there are still enough non-observant people out there who confuse babies' genders. We got "boy" all the time with my oldest when she was a baby. She could be decked to the nines in pink with a big bow in her hair and people would call her a boy. On one of these pink occasions, I corrected the lady who called her a "he" and she said, "Well, he looks like a boy!" As if I would dress my little boy in pink ribbons and bows. LOL

  18. Dear The Bald, Non-walking, Baby Girl-Not a Boy,

    Can we start a support group? I too am bald, non-walking, and baby girl-not a boy. I wear pink dresses all of the time! You'd think all these tall, walking people would pick up on that!

    Love,
    The Other Bald, Non-walking, Baby Girl-Not a Boy.

  19. Don't stress out cute little thing! I've decided there should be NO timeline for sitting, walking, etc. My baby walked at 9 months, my perfectly happy healthy neice waited until she was 18 months. Every baby is different! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh this could so be my firstborn. She didn't walk until almost 16 months, didn't have hair until she was almost 2.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ahhh, but she's the cutest baby ever!!
    PS- My 17 month old doesn't have much more hair.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I cannot believe you posted this and at the same time I am SO glad. My 10 month baby girl was called a boy 20 times just today. Nonobservant people are ALWAYS making this annoying mistake despite the fact that she looks NOTHING like a boy and is usually wearing a dress...that is probably pink. I have even considered piercing her ears because of it, but then I thought-that's a silly reason to do that...and people are just stupid! But now I'm boycotting piercing her ears because I don't want it to be because people think she is a boy! (ah, the dilemma)

    ReplyDelete
  23. seriously the cutest bald, nonwalking little girl I have EVER seen. No I wouldn't walk if I had someone to carry me or brought me everything I needed!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haahaa, my mom had the same problem with me when I was a baby. I don't know why people can't understand blond-haired, mostly bald babies can be girls! Ssheeesh!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love it!! Those pictures look like an ad for something! She is adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Who would DARE question such a cute, bald baby girl!? I can relate....I was bald until I was about 2...yep, I have a hard time telling which baby pictures are mine and which are my brothers, except for the nifty date on the back!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Awww...she is ADORABLE!
    My mom was the most intelligent woman ever and grandma said Mom didn't walk 'til she was 18 months old because she just hadn't needed to.
    And, I love love love bald babies.~

  28. you are hilarious, your baby is way cute i feel you on the bald thing...we just celebrated the 1st birthday of my 5th bald child...i think it looks strange when babies HAVE hair!

  32. SHE is just delicious and a fabulous typer! Both of my girls experienced the same -while wearing pink!

    ReplyDelete
  33. She is adorable. Same thing happened yesterday to Addison. I had her in cute brown capris and a brown sweater that had some pink knitted flowers on it. Everyone called her "little guy". She doesn't have much hair either. oh well. I guess that's why moms go the all pink route.

  34. Great idea for a baby toy! I have plenty of unusd keyboards. Just have to clean them though!

  35. Dear bald baby,
    You are too cute for words! My baby sister was bald for the longest time and even when people would ask if she was a boy and I would tell people her name, Elizabeth, they still thought she was a boy. some people never learn :) You are a gorgeous bald baby, just saying :) Happy Tuesday bald baby!

  37. i had the same problem with my 1st daughter. She only had hair in the back, so I guess she looked like a little bald old man. LOL. I could dress her up in the frilliest pink dress, and she would still be called HE! My 2nd child didn't walk until she was 13 months, and people kept telling me I needed to take her to a dr. to see "what was wrong". Mmmm, whatev. Should i have taken my 3rd child, the boy, who walked at 9 months to see why he was walking too early?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, and when everybody elses' kid is concentrating on walking, yours will probably be blogging and tweeting. lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. How could anyone think she was a boy?! It can't be the hair - with lots of curls my little girl gets called a boy! (Oh, and she *isn't* bald, I see loads of dear little fluffy hair, but it doesn't show up cause it's blonde!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My first daughter was bald AND didn't walk until she was 15 months and 29 days old :) My second came out with a ridiculous amount of hair and they look nothing alike. So, now I get, "Are they both yours?" I know what they really want to ask. "Are they from the same daddy?" And I usually embarrass them with that statement. Yes, they are both from the same daddy. And from me. The things people say :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. She is adorable. Such a happy girl!
    Hope she's not typing in any illegal fonts on that keyboard!!!!

  42. This happened to me yesterday! My daughter Elodie everyone thinks is a boy! We are out & about and in all pink and a pink car seat they always go to boy first lol Janey is super cute and deff looks like a girl! I love that she is bald and such a cutie patootie! :) So, what if she's not walking she will get there when she wants too..people are jealous of her mad typing skills thats all!

  43. She's so stinkin' cute! My daughter did not have hair until she was nearly 2 1/2. She got carried around everywhere! She now is a teenager with the thickest most beautiful hair ever and can't stop moving! All in God's time...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Okay, she just makes me happy. Seriously. Her smile makes my soul happy. How can you not smile back? Even if it is just to my computer? And if I were her I would not walk either. And just so you know cute baby that I love...I didn't walk for a long time either. Want to know why? I didn't want to fall down and get dirty. True story. Maybe you are like me. Or maybe you just like the help. I have a feeling I did too.

    ReplyDelete
  45. She is so adorable, you can't help but smile when looking at her! My daughter was constantly mistaken for a boy when she was a baby too. Even dressed head to toe in pink! Used to drive my hubby crazy. And she was bald until after the age of 2. Now she has the thickest most beautiful head of long brown hair. She always has done things according to her own timeline!

    ReplyDelete
  46. um...she can't walk or read?!
    you're in trouble.
    HA!

    My baby brother (youngest of 4) had to go to speech therapy when he was 3 cause he wasn't talking. After 2 sessions the Dr. told my Mom "He talks fine...he just never has to. Everyone in your family talks for him."

    Still to this day (he's almost 30) he gripes about none of us letting him get a word in when we are all together. Wah.

    Love the keyboard. We have one of those in the garage with a broken monitor. Keeps Wyatt busy for a good 30 minutes while I sew. =)

  47. She is so cute I could eat her!

  48. she's so cute. and besides when your older no one cares what age you were when you started walking! no one ask, "oh, how old were you when you started walking?" they just don't. so world, stop asking.

    she's so cute! i think she looks a lot like you :O)

    ReplyDelete
  49. She is just so precious.

    And I don't think she has boyish features even if she wasn't wearing pink. She looks like a girl to me.

    And who cares if she's walking. Kenzie took awhile to start walking too. All in their own time.

    Kenzie's ALWAYS mistaken for a boy. And she even has hair now. And often has it in a ponytail or pigtails, and she'll be wearing a skirt and have painted toenails and sitting in a pink stroller and people will STILL call her a boy.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wow! She looks so much like you! Except for the whole bald thing. All 3 of my girls were mistaken for boys...even with hair...with a bow in it. oy vey! The worst comment I ever got was from my mother in law when my oldest was 5 weeks old. She had terrible reflux and screamed a lot. My MIL was holding her and said "Good luck with this one. She has quite the temper already. You can just see the devil in her eyes."

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love this post. She is so adorable and such a happy baby. Love her little blue eyes. Don't let her not walking worry you, she will do it on her own time just like you said and jeeze enjoy the last few days of not chasing her around everywhere!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Awww, I remember when I was 2ish? I asked Santa for hair because mine was so short still. I even remember being in my stroller (in a DRESS!) and some little kid said 'look mommy a boy!'...So I can totally relate lol.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hilarious!
    If it makes you feel any better - when my baby girl was little she had tons of hair -sometimes even with bows - and still people called her a boy. Fully pink frilly dresses with bows in her hair and it'd be "what a cute little boy! How old is he?!"

  54. She is the cutest little stinker. {kisses}

  55. Dear Bald Non Walking Baby Girl,

    You're the cutest thing ever!!

    I suggest you blow big, wet raspberries at the next person who says ANYTHING you don't like...except Mommy 'cause she's the boss.

  56. This is too funny! Our 5 year old didn't have much hair and one day we were in a restaurant and someone told us what a cute little boy we had, my husband was like I wouldn't dress my son in a frilly pink dress....!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I don't remember exactly when your daughter was born--but I know she's a similar age to my baby...who's 15.5 months and also not walking! I'm predicting 18 months for her first step. These last of three girls--their big sisters entertain them, why would they need to walk anywhere?

  58. p.s. not sure if you know my profile--but it's Corrina, who spoke @ your mom's group :)

  61. From a Mummy with a bald girl to another Mummy with a bald girl HI HELLO HOW ARE YOU?
    My lil girl 23 months has only JUST started sprouting hair!
    And as for walking - goodness me - I was convinced I'd be carrying Mr 4 years to school ~ he didn't crawl until 13 months and walking didn't start until 20 months.
    Your children are beautiful!
    Enjoy xxx

  63. Aww, she totally doesn't look like a boy. This, coming from a mom of exactly the same thing right now... my little girl is bald and not walking at 11 1/2 months. I love it, she may be my last, so she can live it up for all I care. She's happy, and I am too ;)

  66. That is the cutest post ever! Our littlest didn't talk for a bit longer than usual. When I asked her dr about it, the dr asked her a question which her big brother promptly answered. Dr said "See, she doesn't need to talk yet." She's since made it for her late talking many times over... now if she would only be quiet once in a while. What was I thinking!!!

  67. THAT was adorable :) What a precious little girl!

  68. My daughter is 2 and is just now getting a reasonable amount of hair. She gets called a boy often even though she is also wearing "girly" colors.

    Someone told me that the children who end up with thick hair don't have a lot of hair when they are babies/toddlers. So maybe yours (and mine) will end up with thick hair that everyone loves when she gets older!

    ReplyDelete
  69. you look gorgeous

    my daughter now a grown up had the same problem when she was a baby. just a fuzzy blond wisp of hair al over her head. Every one thought she was a boy too even when she was dressed in pink or a dress.

    She did however eventually have the most beautiful long blonde curls

  70. What kind of HAPPY are you putting in that kid's juice? She is always sooo soooo smiley and bubbly. Who CARES if she is bald and not walking??? For crying out loud - look at those smiles and the edible plump cheeks! Girl has got it goin' ON. Seriously.
