i feel for ya!
ds1 is almost 4. his name is tristan, which means raucous, obnoxious, loud, rambunctious... you get the picture? well, he lives up to it. as a baby, he was entirely out of control, and had no interest in structure. so as parents, we're really loose, and give the boys freedom to lead. ds2, is the total opposite of everything ds1 ever did. ds2 likes to sleep, and happily takes naps. he does not always sleep through ds1's ever constant noise, but having rhythmical background noise helps alot. it tends to muffle ds1's noise. having sports on is great- he sleeps very well to football. musically, he like pleasant on-going sounds.
