Hi everyone. My husband and I have an 8 month old daughter and know that we want another baby. Ideally I would like them to be 2ish years apart but with an impending deployment that isn't really going to be an option. Option 1 is we try twice very soon and see if it works before he leaves, making the babies only 17-18 months apart and potentially a thanksgiving or christmas baby. Option 2 is we wait until he gets back making the babies 2.5-3 years apart. I like option 2 because I would prefer the kids further apart and not a Christmas baby. My hubby likes Option 1 because he doesn't want to be an 'old' dad (hes almost 35, not that old in my book). Any baby would be a blessing and I know I could handle 2 yougens. I know no one can really tell me what to do but any advice, ideas, or perspectives I haven't thought of would be greatly appreciated!
