I came back the next day to do the postpartum exam, and the baby boy was dressed in a little pink sleeper...mom's parents were coming over with some boy clothes later, but hadn't gotten there yet. Hee hee hee. I love that in this age of modern medicine, these funny things can still happen.

I delivered a baby...always a thrill, but this one had an unexpected twist. I didn't know what sex the baby was supposed to be, so after I delivered the baby I held it up for mommy and said "Congratulations! It's a boy!!!" Well, mom and dad both stared at me and said "they told us it was a girl- 99% certain. We picked out a name- Layla. We have a pink nursery." I said "well, of course you can name him anything you want....but I think he might be teased if he's named Layla." They just stared at me. Finally dad said "are you sure??" "yes, i'm sure...come here." so i pointed out the male parts...a couple times before dad believed me!
