This is us with a baby H at his Christening.
This is me just knowing that I was pregnant again, at this stage it was just my little secret.
He was roughly the age that Reggie is now.
I get asked about the age gaps a lot, I don’t think there is a perfect gap. There are pro’s and cons to each. I loved 15 months, the fact that they were so close together I routined them together, they had the same toys, the same nap times, the same clothes (after about a year!) and now they are never apart and keep each other entertained (even when they fight 😬🤦🏻♀️). The hardest part was probably being pregnant with a non-walker as Harrison decided to take his first steps the day after Finley was born! I’ve also got patchy memory of bits of them individually when they did what but I remember they did together, they came as a pair simply known as the boys and rightly or wrongly have treated them that way since (we do have to remind ourselves at times that Fin is actually a year younger). I now also have a 4 1/2 year gap which too is lovely, I love seeing the bigger boys look after Reg and they were so excited the whole way through the pregnancy. They can be a great help at times too with grabbing nappies, putting the dummy back in and generally just keeping him entertained but I do have to worry about their toys now 😱 Lego and marbles are certainly not baby friendly. I also notice the big gap, how I’m stretched in different places and how their needs are now completely different. I’ve struggled to get Reg into any routines because he is always being woken or moved to go to the school run, football, swimming the list never ends 🙈. I am however loving his and my time together while the bigger ones are at school and just having one again to really enjoy.
What are your age gaps? And how have you found them?
