I was just wondering how far apart you guys are spacing your kiddos? And what spacing do you like best? Matt and Beth ended up being super close togeather - only 14 1/2 months. We were thinking about ttc #3 when Matthew is 12 or 15 months but I don't know...all of a sudden that seems like it is coming up really fast. I love having my first two close - they are so cute togeather. I think it will be a mad house when I add #3 though...lol.

All three of mine are three years apart... June, July and August. Talk about being almost exactly three years apart, huh?

Three years sounds nice... Was your older child potty trained when you brought the new baby home?

The 1st and 2nd are 3 years apart

The 2nd and 3rd are 4 years apart

The 3rd and 4th are 2 years apart

*my 1st and 3rd were born on the same day 7 years apart..no planning or anything*

I like the 2 years apart because even though it is boy/girl, they play alot together. But now that the two older ones are 14 and 11, they do everything together also (both girls) so thats not bad either.

Yes, I have only had one child in diapers at a time, thankfully! It seemed as though my oldest mastered potty training just before my second came along, and same with my second when my third came along. Then my third decided to potty train herself at 2.5 years, the same day I went out and stocked up on diapers! I was thinking to myself...That little stinker couldn't have done it the day before I stocked up? LOL

Gosh it is so nice to have only one in diapers at a time!

#1 and #2 are 22 months apart

#2 and #3 are 15 months apart

#3 and #4 are 30 months apart

#4 and #5 are 19 months apart

I think my favorite spread was the 22 months.
