Did you have them close together?

Mine are closely spaced except Shawn. He would have been closely spaced too but we had fertility issues when we were ttc him. I kind of wish I had spaced my kids a little further apart but it's all worked out. It's getting easier now only having one little one to deal with.

I had my first 3 in just over 3 years. Then a 2 year gap and then a 3 year gap.
I liked having them close together. The 3 year gap was nice for me (since the one above is a little older and more independent) but for the child herself I find it plenty much. I like the 18mo to 2 years apart.

Christopher and Carissa are 19.5 months apart.
Carissa and Cody are 22 months apart
Cody and Cailynn are 20 months apart.

Cailynn is already 5 now so if I have any more... there will be a 6 year gap.
