I had the pleasure of running into an old friend I hadn't seen in years, and was introduced to her beautiful toddler girl. She looked absolutely adorable in her little pink dress, and when I said as much my friend rolled her eyes and sighed lightly. When she and her husband first learned they were having a girl she said, they'd swore not to make her a "pink" baby, but rather treat her to a wardrobe of varied colors to help express some individuality for their daughter.
Of course, at the baby shower she ended up unwrapping box after box of cute pink outfits. As it turns out, too, the girl favors the color herself, and expresses her independence by pitching a holy fit when Mom tries to dress her in something else.
