    boys for sure!
    My son is my permanent attachment! He is my little helper
    My daughter is little Miss Independent and is going through the stage where she will not let me do anything for her, she HAS to do it! And she is only 2 1/2!
    But she was the quietest baby, which is funny because now she is very chatty and very much a free-spirit.
    Some days she can be a real little treasure but she is just so darn cute!

    LOL..... I found my boy a lot more affectionate and cuddlier than my DD - she was a lot more independent and less likely to come up for cuddles.

    Also my boy was a lot rougher with toys though - my DD tended to play on her own happily but my DS tends to try and find out how things work by breaking toys or just having fun whacking them together.

    I hear raising teenage girls can be a nightmare though! Boys tend to be "whatever, just get over it" whereas girls tend to play the emotional mind games.

    Boys

    My DS is an easy child, easy going, has always been a good sleeper, easy feeder, achieved milestones in average time, easy easy easy

    DD well, lets say she is spirited and tricky, oh and moody and independent to a fault, and destructive and and and

    This is exactly wat my 2 are like. Girl = good baby, harder toddler. Boy = harder baby, easy toddler.

    At first it was my boy...but not it's the girls and my son is harder. My 3 month old is too young to tell right now. I think they go through stages.

    I've come to believe it's personality not gender that makes it easier or harder.

    Currently (not knowing the future) DD2 is my easier child but I think either gender would have been easier with the same sort of personality and nature especially after the first two who were full on from birth both in personality and nature.
