I have a step daughter that's nine and a 21 month old and it's not easy the nine year old acts like the baby and the baby acts like she is nine she cleans and helps around the house and the nine year old wont even clean her own room
My kids are 12,10,4 months
My daughter is 6. I had a little boy when she was 3, but he passed away at only 6wks old. We went on to have another who is now 19months. Although this big of an age gap was never "the plan" they love eachother so much that sometimes I can't even believe it myself. My husband is the oldest of 4 boys (all 2 yrs apart) and I am the 3rd of 4 girls (all 1yr apart). We both wanted that for our own children, because we always had eachother as friends and are so close with our siblings still, but things don't always work out the way we want. We're just making the best of it as we go, and its going really well.
All 3 of my kids are exactly 2 years and 10 months apart. And I didn't plan that! Crazy!
23 month age gap
We've had ups and downs. Some hitting, lots of kisses and hugs,occasional jealousy when the baby is breastfeeding.
I'm hoping they'll be close friends when they're older.
