The Differences Between Boys & Girls

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

I don't know whether its the difference between boys and girls, or just the difference in personalities between my babies, or maybe even a combination of the two. But boy are my babies different.

We always knew that Emma would be laid back. From day one we could tell. She was sleeping through the night at a month old. She would nap for 3/4 of the day. We barely even had to baby proof because she just wasn't interested in messing with things. She couldn't have cared less about the steps, or the fireplace, and after one "No" from Mommy or Daddy, she got the message.

Category 7 The Squishy on the other hand, is a different story. Even while pregnant, he gave us a run for our money. He was crawling three months before Emma was. He.has.a.temper. He is very physical. He couldn't care less about TV shows because he is too busy trying to climb up the steps or break the fireplace. After thirty seven "No"s from Mommy or Daddy, he continues to simply laugh at us, and go on about his business.

As I was moving some videos from our Flip to the computer, I noticed that we have pretty good proof of their personality differences. These two videos are of my babies at the exact same age, ten months old.
Check out how Emma gets interested in Shamie's water bowl, how we tell her "No", and then she laughs, tells us "No" almost like if she was saying "Okay Mommy, I tell myself No!" and then applauds herself for doing such a good job. She then goes on about her business.

Now, check out The Squishy. Not just the physical differences, but more importantly, his reaction when Wes picks him up and tries to stand him up. This is just a glimpse into The Squishy's temper.

Yeah. We are in big trouble. BIG trouble.
