At one point I had 3 under 3. Good luck but don’t worry they don’t stay that little forever!

Our oldest was 3 1/2 when the third one was born. It’s fun! It’s just one continuous run of diapers for about six years! 😄

Agree with what everyone is saying. I found out I was pregnant with my second when my first was 9 months old. I cried myself to sleep that night. And quite honestly, the first 2-3 years with them, I developed chronic stress...also of course, attributed to work and bickering with spouse over kids/nanny/house renovations, but still, it was a very hard 3 years. Now they are 4.5 and almost 6, and life is wonderful—seriously. They play together, and I have so much fun with them. I’m so happy to be out of the baby and toddler years, which would have been prolonged had we not had them so close together. Wishing you all the best!!

It gets better. Sorry, that was mean. It's a lot but I'm glad we did them close together because they can play together and it shortens the most parenting intensive years.

If you thought you were tired with one, be prepared for a whole new level of tired. I’m told it gets better when the younger one is two... I am nowhere near there yet. 😴 I will say, while the lows are lower, the highs are so much higher. Watching them together is adorable. And for me, if I waited until we were out of diapers and sleep deprivation to have a second, we probably wouldn’t have had a second.
