...look most like? Kody looks so much like his big brother it's crazy! I'm not sure at this point whether he looks more like me or DH.
...seem to have inherited their personality from (so far)? He seems pretty calm. Both DH and I are laid back, so he seems to fit that. Ethan's pretty laid back too, which I so appreciate! My sis is very um...flamboyant shall we say? Passionate? And it shows in her family! She has 3 kids and it's kind of mayhem over there when we go lol! So I'm grateful for the calm here!
...prefer to put them to sleep? Me...of course. Cause DH doesn't try, hah. He had bad luck trying to get Ethan to calm down for him or go to sleep so he doesn't think Kody will take to him either for those things.
...prefer to smile at? He will smile at me and DH a lot, and Ethan sometimes too!
...get their sleep habits from? Hmm hard to tell at this point. So far I'd say he's most like his big brother...waking up a lot at night, but at this point he is a heck of a lot better than Ethan was. Ethan was waking 8-10 times a night, whereas Kody is more like 5 or 6. Sometimes as little as 4. So I count myself lucky!
...look most like? You? Hubby? Other sibling? Grandma? Etc...
I couldn't tell who she looked like at all until my mom gave me a baby picture of myself and held it up to her. If I didn't know that she hadn't worn the outfit in the picture I would have sworn it was Avery.
...seem to have inherited their personality from (so far)? Outgoing like DH? Calm like you? Etc...
She has my laid back go with the flow attitude about most things, but her daddy's quick temper.
...prefer to put them to sleep?
Me by far. She'll nap with me, DH, and my mom, but when it comes to nighttime I have to put her down. I put her to sleep every night since she was born, so I guess she just considers that her routine.
...prefer to smile at?
Anyone who talks to her. She smiles at random people at the mall even if they show her attention.
...get their sleep habits from ?
Me unfortunately. I'm a very light sleeper, and for the most part Avery seems to be too.
...look most like? You? Hubby? Other sibling? Grandma? Etc... She looks EXACTLY like her daddy. I swear, I was not part of any of that kid (except for the 9 months of being fat and the excruciating, traumatic delivery that is). Sweet!
...seem to have inherited their personality from (so far)? Outgoing like DH? Calm like you? Etc...She's pretty sensitive, like me. Still not quite sure what her personality will be yet, but I'm excited to find out!
...prefer to put them to sleep? Me, since I'm the one who's done it since she came home from the hospital. No fault of DH...I'm a super bad baby-snatcher.
...prefer to smile at? Everyone! She's not particular. Use the baby voice on her, and she's yours.
...get their sleep habits from ? Not sure yet. I LOVE my sleep and would sleep 12+ hours if you let me...she's not there yet, for sure. Even though I like lots of sleep, I'm almost always in a good mood in the morning, and she's definitely the same way.
Look most like? You? Hubby? Other sibling? Grandma? Etc... - She looks like DH. ALL my girls have looked JUST like him as babies. My first girl still looks a ton like him. My second looks a lot more like me now, which is nice to see! Lilah looks exactly like DH right now - seriously. It's crazy. I must have weak genes! Maybe if we had a boy, he'd look like me.
Seem to have inherited their personality from (so far)? Outgoing like DH? Calm like you? Etc... - She's a firecracker so far - doesn't like to sit still, she's impatient, not laid back at all. I guess she's a real mix of both of us personality wise.
Prefer to put them to sleep? - Her swing. She doesn't like to be rocked and held very much. She naps in her swing all day. If I try to put her to sleep, she screams and screams. At night, DH puts her to bed. He's pretty good at it.
Prefer to smile at? - I'd say my oldest daughter Lexy - Lilah just LOVES her.
Get their sleep habits from ? - Neither of us......but more me I guess. She wakes easily, as do I. She's restless and doesn't need much sleep - not sure who she gets that from.
...look most like? We think it's funny....While he's got a great tan, he's not as dark as me yet... We say he's a mexican version of my husband. My daughter is my white mini me.
...seem to have inherited their personality from (so far)? My husband. He's extremely quiet and calm unless you piss him off. Koa's quiet/calm 97% of the time and happy. Koa also likes to sit and relax like my husband and people watch or watch sports apparently.
...prefer to put them to sleep? Me because I have the milk.
...prefer to smile at? Me! And I'm the only one who made him laugh too.
...get their sleep habits from ? He sleeps great, so I'd say my husband..
