Beyoncé and Jay-Z's baby girl Blue Ivy Carter arrived Saturday, and while little girls are customarily pretty in pink, this baby is also being surrounded by touches of blue.

This was the case over the holidays, when, in anticipation of the baby's birth, the parents-to-be sent pals blue Christmas gifts, a source tells PEOPLE.

Sources and fans suggest the couple chose the name "Ivy" because of the number 4 or Roman numeral IV, which is significant in Beyoncé and Jay-Z's relationship.

Beyoncé's birthday is Sept. 4, while Jay-Z's is Dec. 4; the two married on April 4 in 2008; they reportedly have matching "IV" tattoos on their wedding fingers; and Beyoncé named her latest album 4.

These ladies know how to celebrate! Beyoncé Knowles threw a dance party for Solange's 22nd birthday Monday night that brought out pals Ludacris, Ne-Yo, Mario and Destiny Child's Michelle Williams.

Guests danced to tracks like Prince's "Kiss" and Bob Marley's "Could You Be Loved" spun by Lindsay Lohan pal DJ Samantha Ronson, as the birthday girl grabbed a microphone and called people to the floor. Lohan sat close to the deejay booth early on, but left before most guests arrived at the Hollywood Hills mansion at 11 p.m.

On Solange's request, Ronson kept the tunes in the family, playing nearly every hit in Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z's catalogs including "Big Pimpin'" (as Solange played a tambourine and Beyoncé showed off her best moves) and "Dirt Off Your Shoulder." When Beyoncé's "Get Me Bodied" played, revelers circled around the Knowles sisters as they reenacted dance moves from the song's video.
