Having children 19 months apart was not easy during that first year of Shaggy's life. The fact that Little M was not very verbal (he has speech delays) didn't help either. Everyone kept telling me that it was so great that they were close in age. I just looked at them like they were crazy. That first year was rough.
Now they are 2 1/2 and 4 years old. They are best buds. They ask to sleep in the same room together. They ask each other to play. When I pick Little M up from preschool, he asks where his sister is. If they are napping and one wakes up first, they ask when the other will wake up so they can play. I love it!
