@Quietserenity:  Congratulations!!  My two are 17 months apart.  They are very close.  It was a little tricky in the beginning, but really wonderful all the same.  🙂

My sisters and I are all close in age and faught like bloody hell growing up.  Still do.  But who knows?  I am sure it is different for everyone.

Being the youngest, I hated being expected to be just like them.  Same sports, same grades, same test scores.  My family is screwed up, though, so there is hope for other families 🙂  I did and do hate the competition, and the jealousy and stealing one another’s clothes.  It was and is hard.

Congratulations Quietserenity!   You may need to consider changing your screen name.  Smile  My brother and I are 10.5 months apart.  We grew up very close. Certainly we had our fights during childhoold but always had each other’s back. (And still do!).  As siblings, I’d say it was really nice.  For the parents…probably stressful having 2 babies in diapers, 2 kids with chickenpox, needing glasses, contacts, etc.  Basically, just double every expense cause we went through everything together.

@mypinkshoes:  It is pretty cool! There is 2 months every year where they are the same age, having been born at the opposite ends of 1982. That being said, I don’t think I would want to suffer through a birth 10 months after a first one. I give a lot of respect to his mom for that!
