** Since Stewie was the FG's BreakoutCharacter he got massively used to please the audience. Initially just a gimmick, his mentality, unusual for a baby, got played out long ago since he simply was overspent as the jokes and situations got used out. Notice how Chris and Lois are relatively unchanged since those characters -precisely the ones not voiced by MacFarlane- very rarely get the spotlight. Since they never broke out due to the fact that they weren't really original (stay-at-home moms and dumb teenagers? please) and they were never CreatorsPets, they were never used that much which allowed them to keep their essence as time went by.

** I think the route they took from Stewie 1 to Stewie 2 was something like this: Stewie is an evil genius. Evil characters are stereotyped as British, so we'll make Stewie British. British men are stereotyped as effeminate gentlemen, so we'll make Stewie effeminate. Effeminate men are stereotyped as gay, and vice versa, so we'll make Stewie gay.

** Stewie 1 would have definitely gotten played out; there are only so many ways you can make him attempt to kill his mother, after all. Plus, the demented evil genius baby has much more limited characterization and potential for development than the new Stewie does; the Stewie Kills Lois 2-parter was more or less an official farewell to the evil genius baby, though shades of it do show up from time to time.
