My sons are EXACTLY a year apart in age....they share a birthday - Aug 21, 2002 and Aug 21, 2003.  It is fun to mess with people's heads when they ask if my boys are twins and I can honestly reply "no, but they do share a birthday"!

Our 14 yr old girls are only 3 hours apart they were born at different hospitals and in different towns (same state) they are step sisters :)
Any idea how many people they have freaked out with that little bit of trivia? Lol.
My DS1 is only 15 months older than the girls. In some ways and at times I felt like we had triplets lol.

Not me. My mom had my brother and sister 11 months apart. I've heard it's more difficult than twins because they are at different stages. I don't know from experience though. My kids are 2 1/2, 4, and 3 years apart.

ha ha ha That would definitely mess with me. It just seems so unlikely.

 Mine are 18 months apart, it was hard when they were young, but as they get older it gets much easier

Mine are 12 1/2 mos apart in age, same height, same eyes and hair color, both skinny. Boy older, girl younger. My ds didn't walk full time until 17 1/2 mos, when dd was 5 mos. lol yes, everyone has thought they were twins since birth. Lol my friend has twins. She thought mine was harder because my older could move. I disagreed. Lol my older could at least wait and kinda understand. :) I love having mine so close! They are best friends, they share friends, they have the same interests at the same time. :)

mine are 8 and 9 now. The 1st few years were the hardest. It gets easier. :) 2 years was what we planned, but, it has worked out great. :)
