Personal pronoun problems

An interesting thing about having a girl after two boys is that I keep calling her "him" or "he". But at least I'm not the only one that does it... I've caught the grandparents doing it as well. You'd think that after years of wanting a girl, and months of being pregnant, I'd be able to get my head around "her" and "she", but then again sleep deprivation does make you do crazy things.

The other thing I find myself doing is not calling her by her name. So when I do stop calling her "him", I tend to say "the girl" rather than "Elora". I think it's a habit I picked up from my father!
