On the question of when the association of pink with girls and blue with boys began--in the 2nd part of Little Women (called Good Wives over here), which I assume was written in the 1870s (my copy doesn't say), they put a pink ribbon on a girl and blue on a boy, "French fashion". So perhaps the idea started there?
