My daughter is now five weeks old and in the last week a lot of personality has begun to emerge. I think she’s going to be rather mild mannered like her brother, perhaps even more so. She likes to sit/lay down and observe things for a very long period of time. My son, as he approaches age two, has a very long attention span compared to other children his age, to the point where we have actually considered getting him the game Candy Land for his second birthday, because we think he has the cognitive ability and the patience to handle it (or is very close to that level). Watching children’s personalities emerge is amazing.
