It always amazes how different babies, and in turn the children they become, can be. I mean we all start out the same – a single cell that grows and divides millions of times over to create a human being. So how are we all so unique? I have to say that I am amazed daily at just how different my boys can be, it is so true that no two children are alike . From day one they have shown different personalities, different needs and different interests.
Monkey stormed into our lives 8 weeks early leaving Hubs and I in a whirlwind of confusion and worry. He has always been great at giving us a good scare from having dips in his oxygen levels while in the NICU or falling face-first out of the tree house in our back yard. He can make a racket are run around screaming, but any noise from anyone else is “too loud”.
Little Bear on the other hand has been a quiet gentle soul right from the start. Even though he is only 7 months old I can already see the differences between his personality and Monkeys. Little Bear is happy just to be close to you, a snuggle and a kiss and you will not hear a peep out of him ALL DAY. That is except when it is time for food. Eating is very serious business for Little Bear, so If you are eating you better be sure to have something for him too, or you are going to get a talkin’ too.
Monkey is very tentative when it comes to going on amusement rides, while you can toss, flip and roll Little Bear every which way with him laughing the whole time. I can’t wait to see as they grow to what characteristics are similar between the boys and is unique about them. A mini nature vs nurture experiment in my own home!
