Quoting Miyah ' s Momma (::" I think I just like them being close in age so they can be close. MY BF has a 2 year old also, but we want another. My DD turns one on the 24th. "
I do like that they will be close for that reason. But I know my first born (as much as she adores her sister and is always wanting to cuddle with her and help me with her) get a lil jealous when im with the baby. Me, my sister and brother are all 4 years apart and im super close with both of them, even though there are 8 years between my brother and I. I actually enjoyed it that way. My bff and her brother and sister were all born in 33 months and she (the eldest) hated being so close together.
