well.. im the opposite to most of there posts. lol.. my little girl does not want nearly the same amount of attention my son did.. she is ssoo much easier.. so i think its not a case of boy or girl being easiest.. i think its just individual children..

i have 2 boys and 1 girl. they are definitely different. she only 2 months but she has to know she always has your attention. its kind of crazy, and it's kind of weird changing diapers. i mean you get so used to cleaning pee-pees and then getting a girl kind of weirded me out. It was funny I actually asked the dr how I'm supposed to clean her down there.

Humm.. Well I have 2 boys and 1 girl. As infants, the boys were a little harder to handle for some reason. My girl was a very quiet baby, and slept well. As toddlers, they are all full of energy and hard to keep up with. Girls, are tad less harder as toddlers. Since my daughter has 2 older brothers, I catch her wanting to play with their cars and dinosuars more than her barbies or dolls. But then she would sit next to me every time I do my nails. She tends to want to be a lot like me. My daughter is just 2 right now, but I have plenty of neices. All different ages, and they are all different. All different personalities. Thats what so fun and interesting.

Though I should point out something. Girls seem to try and test your restrictions alot more, because they are very sneaky and smart. They know we tend to be alot easier on them then their brothers. They will try to push your buttons and your limits, and see if you are paying attention..lol. So a little advice. I know it probably won't happen b/c we are all suckers for the lil' girls.. but try to keep the same rules and discipline for both your son and daughter cause they will notice with time.. =p

But as far as them being different, not so much. Though my pregnancy with my daughter was easier. Anyways, I've said enough..lol. Hope I helped at all. Good luck and congrats!!

I have 2 boys, but I had temp custody of my neice for a few months. She was 1 1/2 yrs old at the time. I find girls to be a lot different from boys. She was a lot more prissy and demanding. She needed to be the center of attention and if she wasn't the tantrum came on. I am very happy that my second was another boy. They are so laid back.

Uh, in my situation, I had a girl first. She was so prissy and just wanted to be just like me. It makes you kind of man-up. For instance, I hate spiders, couldn't even get close enough to kill them...however, a little girl feels the same way, and someone has to kill the thing when Daddy isn't around, so you end up having to be the one to do it. Too much prissiness gets to me, so it was kind of a relief to have a boy, except I find that boys are more energetic.

Girls require alot,lot more one on one interaction while boys are more solitairy,they tend to play on their own,I work w/inf./toddlers and have observed and verified by Early Childhood educator classes! hope that helps, good luck and congrats!!!!
