So, I have 8 month old boy/girl twins, and people are always asking if they're identical.  Clearly, they're not; they look nothing alike, and even if they did, they're BOY/GIRL twins.  My daughter has the most amazing eyelashes, but is bald.  My son has much more hair than she does. So even if she looks like a girl in every fiber of her being, people see No Hair, and think BOY.  I don't always help them out by dressing her in whatever I feel like (read: anything but pink).  On one fine day in June, however, I decided to help out the errant passerby, and I crafted her a huge honking flower/bow thing to attach to a headband.  It sure ain't pink, but I think it fairly screams, "GIRL!"

It was admittedly a bit heavy, but cute nonetheless.



Doesn't she look chuffed to be wearing it?

Gorgeous baby, really cute flower headband. People always mistook my little baldie daughter for a boy too, even when she was wearing girlie clothes. *smh

I am a nanny for a 7 month old little girl and I think this is a cute idea. Also the look on her face is funny, like "I like that shiny thing you are holding there... it would look nicer covered in my drool though"

I'm looking for wrist watches or old clocks. Broken or working, doesn't matter! I will swap anything you would like.

My goodness! Eyelashes to die for.  Shocked She really doesn't need the headband but it does make her look very cute.

Love the hair ornament and the outfit. I was not real taken with "girlie clothes" either when my daughter was a baby.
