Hi there! My name is Kelly and I have 2 kids who are 5 years old and 3.5 years old. My kids are 19 months apart and I am pregnant with baby number 3 and she/he is due in August. My son will be 4 and my daughter will be 5.5 when the baby comes. To me 4 years is a widely spaced compared to my first 2 kiddos! I must admit I am really looking forward to having a baby farther apart this time around and I think my kids will be great helpers and really understand the idea of being a big sister and big brother. People were defintely suprised we were pregnant again but luckily we have had lots of support. I feel like I will be doing it all over again yet many of my friends are just now having their 2nd baby and their first is 4 or 5 years old. I was on the closelyspaced board and now I will be on widely spaced board, he he! I know my daughter will love the new baby and be a great big sister but I worry my son might be jealous that he isn't the youngest anymore. He is very close to me especially because I breastfeed him for 3 years and he just loves to cuddle.

Very exciting My oldest 2 kids are 5 years and 4 months apart and while its great from the big helper aspect, sometimes they fight just as much as kids are closer in age

From what you're describing, I think your family is going to move along very smooth with the new baby =)
