The Ordinary Moments #8 Which gender?

Being photo bombed by Mimi

This week has been one of those 'meh' weeks, I've had a cold and sore throat, Eliot has not been 100%. He's been off his food and had a few unsettled nights, I suspect teething has been the problem but I'm not completely sure.

On Friday we met Eliot's prospective childminder, a big moment. She was lovely and I feel happy about  Eliot being cared for by her.

Afterwards we went for a late lunch where Eliot caught the eye of another lady who made a fuss of him. He liked it as he kept turning round in his highchair to look at her. Then came a question we've never encountered since Eliot was born. 'Is it a girl or a boy?' I told her he was a boy and she commented on what a 'pretty boy' he was. The OH and I were just surprised as this has never been asked, I would've expected it months ago but not when E is pushing 9 months! To us he looks very much like a boy. I thought maybe it was the bib he was wearing that might of made the lady question his gender.

Later we were leaving a supermarket and were in the lift with two other women. One asked 'Is it a boy or a girl?', 'A boy' I replied. What was it about Eliot that day that made two people question his gender? Not that I was bothered, it was just expected many months ago as I think it's a very ordinary moment that parents usually experience, just earlier on.

As usual I'm linking up with Katie from  Mummy Daddy Me Makes Three
