  • My boys are 81/2 years apart and yes with the same DH. We didn't think we could have anymore after 1st DS and then surprise!
    I love that my boys are far apart in age, because I"ve been able to give DS#2 the same attention that I gave DS#1 when he was little. It's like having 2 only children. An added bonus is that DS#1 loves to help out with DS#2

  • My kids are one year and nine months apart. Which is exactly how I wanted it! We decided to try again when our oldest turned one, and our next baby was literally due 9 months to the day after his first birthday. Talk about timing! If we have more we are planning to wait like four years. But I'll probably try for one in four years and a fourth on that baby's first birthday, so they can have the bond that my eldest do.. Or we might just try for the third and say its all good. =)

  • My kids are 1, 2 and 3. The 2 and 3 year old are 13 months apart and the 1 and 2 year old are 20 months apart. We didn't plan it this way but we love it. Our plan now is to wait about 3 years and have two more close together and then be done. But we don't follow our plans very well so we will see what happens.
