What's the difference between Boys and Girls?

Besides the obvious of course! So far I've been simultaneously raising 2 boys and a girl for 14 months. I haven't noticed too many significant differences just yet. Kami seems to talk more and better at a younger age than Gavin and Luke, but other than that, I've only noticed one really big difference. Eating habits. Gavin and Luke eat ALOT and they take huge bites and make a HUGE mess. Kami eats ALOT, takes small bites and manages to keep her food on her tray (on most days anyway!) I remember when Gavin was there age, when he'd finish eating, he would put his bowl/plate/whatever on his head like a hat. Luke just throws his in the floor. But can someone please explain how my one year old daughter manages to make less of a mess than her more experienced two year old brother? Last night we had 'breakfast for supper.' Scrambled eggs and biscuits. Gavin wanted oatmeal. He also wanted eggs, even though he doesn't eat them. So, I fixed him a bowl of oatmeal and a plate of some scrambled eggs and a biscuit. He dumped half of his oatmeal onto his eggs and biscuits. And then got mad because I took a picture of it.
If you make the picture bigger you can tell there is oatmeal on his plate and the table, there was also some on his feet.
Luke has eggs all over the place, in his chair, on the floor...
And Kami's little tray is nice and neat. No food on the floor beneath her (except what Luke catapulted over there).

Very funny! I am a bad mommy. I let Baylee eat just about anywhere. Mostly in my lap at the table or in her room while watching TV. I know aweful right?I won't even let her feed herself in fear of the HUGE mess she is destined to make that I will have to clean up! ;)
