My Daughter's Aqiqah: YOU are invited! Sun Dec.20

Bismillah was Salatu was salamu 'ala Rasoolillah.
Alhamdulilah, my first daughter was born soon after Eid AlAdha.
And now with my second daughter I've been given the most precious Eid gift from Allah ta'ala again.

From the Sunnah of our Prophet, sal Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam, one should slaughter an animal, shave the baby's head - giving the weight of the hair in charity, and name the child.

Distributing the meat of the sacrificial animal will be done by having an "Aqiqah" party.

Here are the Aqiqah party details. It's open to the public, I would be honored if you could make a special trip to join my family and I on this special occasion. (If you are coming from out of town, please let us know so we can welcome you):

What: "Aqiqah" dinner party for Baby-Girl Alshareef
Who: Muhammad Alshareef and Family invite you and your family
Where: Ottawa Islamic School
10 Coral Avenue
Ottawa, Ontario
K2E 5Z6
When: Sunday, Dec 20, 2009; 4:30pm to 8:30pm

Jazakum Allahu khayr to all of you for your kind words and Ameen to your duas!
- Muhammad Alshareef (Abu Al-Bintayn)

Is it from the sunnah to shave the girls head as well? I've also just had a baby girl and we are debating whether a women is included in this sunnah or not? (it appears there is some ikhtilaf on this issue)
