Gendering babies

I went to the mall yesterday to exchange some baby gifts. I went into two stores, and all the saleswomen cooed over Luca. They all thought he was a girl. "How old is she?" "How much did she weigh?" "She's beautiful!" And I replied, "She's 2 1/2 months." "She weighed 6 pounds." "Thanks!"  

After all this she-ing, I asked if I could change her in the fitting room. So I went back, laid her down on the table, got out the supplies for her diaper change, opened her diaper and... !!! There was a penis! She had a penis. And I forgot.
