To Compare

I'm so bad at this kind of stuff.


Joey is sensitive and logical. He thinks about other people and is extroverted in the sense he likes to be around people. He likes to be close and touching. Putting him in timeout is the worst punishment because it separates him. He is caring and curious about asking how your day went. He all the sudden starting carrying around a stuffed dinosaur and pretends it's his baby. He's been consistent about taking it everywhere and even putting it to bed at certain times.
He has a great memory and can remember a phrase that a salesman used and then bring it up in conversation 2 weeks later. He tends to let John push him around and often won't fight back. He's content to play by himself and loves anything with wheels. His ability for sound effect rivals his dad's and he has an excellent sense of direction and always seems to know where we're going or how to get there.


John is all heart. He has no fear and wants only to keep up with his brother no matter what ladder, height, or jump is in the way. He loves to throw and could play catch all day. He likes to be entertained and is more of a troublemaker. He will climb the furniture and unravel a giant roll of paper towels and dig through the silverware drawer and pull out a knife. He's a klutz and sets his eyes on something and will trip or run into a wall trying to get there.
John seems to need time away to recharge, where a little time in his crib can calm him down and often tells us when he is tired and ready to go to bed. He scares easily and even our own dog barking will cause him to cry, which is funny because he has loud, shrill scream of his own. His communication skills are lacking so he resorts to hitting and pinching in order to get attention. He does not ever sit still and isn't interested in snuggling or watching TV or playing with toys that don't have him moving and jumping around.
