Quoting Cheℓs +1♥:" That's awesome! I hope Cassidy is that way. That's my biggest fear with having another baby. I just want her to know that we still love her just as much as we did before."
Quoting ✰ johnna ✰:" My son was six years old when his sister was born.. My daughter will be just about exactly two years ... [snip!] ... and co-sleep.. and discovering the magical properties of gripe water.. all made a magnificent difference in the experience. "We're only having two kids so we wanted them fairly close. I really didn't want to get totally out of the baby stage & then have another. lol My Aunt had troubles getting pregnant with her second & there's 13 years between the two of them, I want our daughter to be able to have someone to grow up with. My sister is 15 so HOPEFULLY she won't be having kids anytime soon & DH's family lives far away so Cassidy doesn't really have anyone to play with.
Quoting breathingchaos:" Never hurts to tell her you love her all of the time. Trust me, she knows you love her. Changes are ... [snip!] ... to. I was an only child and still to this day I wish that I would've had a sibling to play with, talk to, and just be there. "Cassidy doesn't have anyone to play with so it makes me sad. I think that's why we wanted them fairly close in age. Plus we feel she's catching "only child syndrom" as my Dad likes to call it. lol

Quoting breathingchaos:" Oh yes, I know Only Child Syndrome all too well and it's HORRIBLE growing out of it. I had the hardest time, lol. I look back and think how ridiculous I acted."I had it & then had no choice to change! lol My sister & I are 5 year apart. It suck since Cassidy has nobody to play with Idk how to change it!
Quoting JennMommy2.5:" Mine are 2 1/2 years apart and they are best friends I was super cranky at first when my daughter ... [snip!] ... a routine down its much easier! The best part is watching them play together. My daughter copies everything my son does lol"That's great! Do you think it would have been easier if they were both the same gender? That's also another one of my fears.
Quoting ~Expecting #3~:" My first two are 13 months 3 days apart and the first two weeks took some adjusting but they've been ... [snip!] ... fighting and hitting each other; almost like the closer D-day gets. Hoping it subsides once baby is actually here. Good luck!"Thanks! Good luck to you too.
