Note: One of my favorite comments from viewers thus far has been the fact that many people see the final image of this child as either a boy or a girl. I love this because children are androgynous at such a young age! I refuse to add stereotypical long eyelashes to show that someone is a girl, or wear gender specific "colors" to differentiate what is a boy or a girl. Let the child be a child, and let their own personality stand out.
