My oldest was 15 months when our 2nd was born. She was super independent and didn't need my attention 24/7 so when the baby came home it made no difference to her. She liked to sit and help me with the baby, pick out his clothes, feed him, dress him, change him, etc. She's "play" with him by sitting next to him on his blanket and showing him his toys or her books or whatever, babbling away at him. They were best friends.
They are 10 and almost 9 now and still best friends (even if they fight a whole lot more now). They'd be lost without each other. My 3rd was brought home to 2 toddlers. The older kids were 13 months and 28 months when she was born and they basically ignored her until she was old enough to move around.
