That translates to "A boy?" I get asked that question quite regularly - almost daily in fact. And all because Gabriela doesn't have pierced ears. One might think people would notice the pink and purple dress long before looking at her ears, but not here. They just go straight in for the ears looking for studs.
And while pierced ears really aren't a big deal to me, we're choosing not to get it done until she asks for it. Mostly just because I wouldn't want someone to pierce anything of mine without my prior approval. So we're waiting. I don't care if she's only two years old when she requests it, because, like I said, it's not a big deal. But, we'll wait until she asks. (We also won't be giving her a belly button ring, piercing her nose, or putting a stud through her eyebrow in the first year of her life either - in case anyone was wondering. hehehe)
Meanwhile, maybe I'll stick a post-it note on each side of her head which reads, "Oi! Sou uma menina" (Hi! I'm a girl) just to clear up any doubt that the pink and purple dress leaves behind for folks.
