This is the first time I've ever had children close together. My older sons have been 4 1/2 years, 2 years 8 months, and 3 1/2 years apart. Samuel and Benjamin are 20 months apart. It is a lot harder! But it is sweet and good at the same time and I look forward to them being great playmates! Benjamin is obsessed with Samuel and wants to be holding him and kissing him all the time!
