    My daughter was born on October 8, 1991 and her brother was born on April 7, 1993. So that means there is exactly one and a half years difference between them (minus one day!).

    I have five kids.  The first two are 2 years apart and we were hoping to have another two with the same spacing.  However, I had some miscarriages (I was late 30s) and we started the adoption process from China.  Of course, I did get pregnant again and gave birth at 41 (great experience!).  One year later our adoption came through for a daughter just 6 weeks younger than my birth daughter.  They are "like twins" and 4 years older than their older brother.  Although born in different continents, they act like twin sisters.  Even though it wasn't our plan, we see now that my son needed those four years to have mom to himself.  He is a great older brother to our twins and to their younger sister, also adopted from China, who is 2 years younger.

    My children are 8 and 4 years old.  Exactly 4 years apart and I mean exactly - they have the same birthday!

    Two daughters who are 3 years and 1 month apart.  They are the best of friends although the maturity difference is really showing now that they are almost 15 and 12.  It was perfect for me because I couldn't handle two in diapers, although starting over was kind of a drag too.

    Anyway I am so blessed by both of them and the very close relationship they have shared since the day my second daughter was born.

    My children is one year's apart. But in terms of months, it is almost 2 years since one born in January for older son while daughter is in November.

    I am glad that they have grown up but misses those days when they were children as we had lots of fun and they were so cute.

    Now they are independent and doing their own things.

    I have two, and the age gap between them is 6 years.  Though there was a bit of sibling rivalry in the early stages, soon they got adjusted well and became very close to each other.
