My mother-in-law calls them The Angel & The Emperor... I call them chalk and cheese... Malakai (aka angel) and Harlan (aka emperor) could not be on further ends of the spectrum!
Malakai is a sensory-junky! In fact, he'll give anything a lick (bricks, the dog, even Harlan gets a lick whenever Malakai gets the oportunity!)... While Harlan is a sensory-phobe. Everything seems to be too much for his little system - just waking up is difficult for him and often (in fact the only time) he'll have a 'freak-out' session within 5 minutes of waking up - it's beserk I tell you.
Malakai LOVES to sleep. At 20 months old, Malakai still has two daytime naps (about 3 hours in total).... While Harlan is ALLERGIC to sleep. I am lucky if the little tank sleeps for 45 minutes 3 times a during the day.
Malakai is so relaxed, chilled out, easy going... Harlan is very fussy, very high maintenence, super sensitive...
I think that our journey is just about to get more interesting - with Harlan in our lives, adding his little bit of spice to the mix.
Chalk and cheese I tell ya!
