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.
My oldest child is 26. then 24, then 19, then 4 then 5. All boys.
My sons were born 3 years apart then my daughter came along ( a surprise packet !!) 6 years after the second son ..they are now 36,33 and 27
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.

I was born and raised in one area and then after getting married have lived most of my life far away from my siblings. It has been hard to keep the relationship going, although it really was never that close to begin with - how about yours?

Who's smarter the first born or the second born (or the third or forth)?I always hear, the first born child is smarter because they have more attention from the parents.... or the second born is smarter because of the older brother/sister, etc... So what do you believe? Are the first born children...

Are you and your siblings close?

Why do parents of large to very large families tend to delegate the raising of the youngerchildren to the oldest sibling? Many parents from large to very large families (6 or more children) state that they have little or no part in raising their children, they purport that they...

My theory is that most people seem to like whatever place they've ended up with among their siblings. Most also do seem to have a few minor gripes about it. Without considering anything you've ever read in books about birth order, what's your own personal take on your own place in the...
