Mine will be almost 2.5 years apart. Seems close and makes me a little nervous- but it seems like a far apart spacing for people I know... and they seem to manage with 2 under 2. So I'm sure I can
A little nervous about the sleeping situation since DD is a hardcore co-sleeper and we have a queen bed, but I am thinking about side caring a crib for the new baby so I have on on each side of me. We shall see... I have many months to go.
I hope to get ds2 in brothers bed before the baby is born. I hope that having another warm body next time him will help him sleee, even if it isn't mama. ds1 has a full bed, so crossing my fingers it works.

DD (7/27/09) my UC water baby - I mean toddler!
DS (2/21/12) UC #2! My littlest love
DD1 is 2 years 7 months older than DS and DS is 3 years 11 months older than DD2. If we have anymore, we want the age gap to be less than it is this time (just past 3.5 years)

My next oldest will be 4 years 10 months,
and my oldest will be 7 years 9 months.
this will be my closest spacing. my first two are 2 yrs. 4 mos. apart, and my second two are 2 yrs. 8 months apart.
i've really loved having about two and a half years in between babies, so this closer spacing makes me nervous. i'm sure we will be fine, and the kids will love it in the long run, but i hope the first year goes smoother than i'm anticipating.

I agree that a lot of it totally depends on personality. My brother and I were 20 months apart and fought constantly in jr high/high school (but as adults we get along fine).

We're only planning to have two kids, so I figure I'm just removing the middle child. A lot of families that have thre kids have about a 4 - 5 year age difference between the oldest and youngest.
