My son and daughter are 4 yrs and 3 months apart and in all honesty it is the best age gap ever in my opinion! They are so cute together! Christopher is old enough to know to be gentle with his sister and he is like her little bodyguard. He is really helpful and I couldn't imagine it any other way! I am a little worried about the third baby being only 2 years apart. Aubrey is a little diva so I am worried how she is going to handle a younger sibling!

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my gorgeous siggy!

The nice thing about the bigger age gap is that the older one will likely be more helpful and more independent. When DS2 was born, DS1 wasn't potty trained, couldn't get much for himself, etc. But DS1 will be 5 when baby 3 comes and I think he will be very helpful and he can do so much for himself now.

DS will almost be 5 when this baby comes. I would prefer closer in age but I know him being older will be a huge help since we plan on 1-2 more after this one and I know they will be much closer in age due to a ticking biological clock
