    Nightlight or pitch black? DS has to have a nightlight (we've weaned him down to that from him turning the lights on in the middle of the night) DD can do pitch black, but now they share a room, so she has his night light

    Shy or outgoing? both shy at first but warm up quickly

    Fully potty trained or still working on it? DS fully PT other than night, we are working on that, DD is just starting to PT (she pooped on the potty the other day!)

    Messy or likes things in their right place? both are VERY particular about certain things being in their place but are otherwise messy

    Usually uses utensils or still likes to use hands sometimes? DS uses utensils, DD uses utensils about 50% of the time

    Still using sippies at all or 100% on a cup? DS is required by Momma to use a "cup with a lid" (aka sippy) any time he isn't sitting at the table for a meal to prevent spills only, he could be 100% cup except for the dog, his toddler sister, etc. DD can use a cup but we still give her sippies always

    Curious or keeps to themselves? DS is VERY curious, very very very curious! DD is more observant than curious

    Can sit through a whole movie? DS *can* sit through a movie, but it depends on the movie, DD, no way

    Prefers mommy or daddy? both DD & DS run to Daddy b/c he's only home a bit at night & the weekends, but for crankyness or boo boos, DS prefers Mommy while DD doesn't care

    Calls you mom/dad or mommy/daddy? DS has started calling me Mom, but Daddy is still daddy, but I'm still "Momma-poo" quite a bit too, DD says Momma & Daddy

    Favorite toy at the moment? DS today would be his Mack car hauler from the movie Cars, DD likes babies

    Still naps? DS naps at home usually, but not at preschool (2 days a week), DD naps daily

    Bedtime/wake-up time? they go to bed between 7 & 730, on a good day they go down within 1/2 an hour of being laid down, but sometimes it takes longer (they share a room), up anywhere from 6am to 7am
