I'm curious to know if any mothers out there could sense what their childrens' personalities would be like while they were infants. Let me explain. Gavin ALWAYS has his hands clasped in tight fists. I mean tight. It's difficult to pry his hands open. When he is eating, his body is completely tense. Again, his hands are in tight fists, and his entire body is completely rigid. If he is nursing, he holds on to whatever he can. (Usually he has some piece of my bra in one fist, and my skin in the other fist). I've joked with my family that Gavin is all-business when he eats; he's a serious nurser. I like to call him "the tax attorney" of breastfeeding. What I'm wondering is this: because he seems like such an intense little person right now, does that mean he is going to be an intense adult? I should add that I am completely in love with Gavin...I wouldn't change anything about him, nor would I want to change his personality when he is older. I would just like to know if there is any correlation between behaviors displayed in infancy and behaviors displayed later. Comments, please.
Just incase you were wondering, Charlotte is the complete opposite. She falls asleep every time she nurses, only to wake up screaming 20 minutes later because I had the audacity to put her down.
