Night And Day

Phelan is a fighter and a lover.  Always has been.  Very demonstrative about EVERYTHING.  Very vocal.  Oodles of energy.  Doesn't cry if he falls or bumps for the most part. Stubborn as a mule. Hated nursing.  It wasn't fast enough for him.  If I didn't know better I'd swear he is a fire sign.  He was supposed to be, so maybe that's it.  Definitely a go big or go home kinda guy.l

Finn is quiet, no babbling, more of an observer.  Cries easily.  But very chill otherwise.  Isn't fighting development like it's the devil.  Does things by learning.  (Phelan wouldn't do anything until he knew he could.)  Didn't get frustrated breastfeeding.  Will probably nurse till he is in college.  Mellowing out until things happen.  Not a fighter.  More laid back.  Easier.

In those ways they are night and day. Soooo different.

But both are mama's boys.  Can't sleep on their own.  These things are similar.  But to me they are night and day.  Shockingly so.

Anyone else's kids radically different from each other?

  1. Yes! Although, part of it for us is that they are so far apart in age and they are different genders--but there are things we compare at the different stages--and they are so very different. He was an easy toddler--she, not so much. She is dramatic, he is...well, lately, teenager dramatic. :-)


Whip me, beat me, take away my charge card. Or just leave a comment. Whichever works best for you :)
