8 children in 9 years here! My smallest gap is 11mo and my biggest gap is just shy of 24mo. Most are 12-15mo apart. My oldest was 9yrs3mos when our 8th was born. :)

Wow!! That's quite the adventure! Did you have any Irish twins in there? (Same birth year, but not twins)

We had our first two 16 months apart, then another 6 years later, then 6 years after that we had two more, 21 months apart.
It's been crazy, but I've never had more than 3 that were "official school age" at a time - one year we had one in college, high school, middle school, elementary school, and preschool all at once! This is our 17th year, we only have 11 1/2 more years to go!

We have 8, and they are all pretty close together. Our oldest is 6 and the youngest is 1. We had a singleton, three sets of twins, and then another singleton. The smallest gap is 13 months between our oldest and the first set of twins. Then there's a 21 month gap between our second and third set and 21 months between the third set and the last baby. Goodness that seems so crazy typed out! So is my life I guess. 🤣

We have 8 kids and our biggest age gap is 3 years 8 months between babies 7 and 8.

Our smallest age gap is 10 minutes. :unsure: So not counting the twins, our smallest age gap is 1 year 9 months which is between babies 3 and 4 and also babies 5/6 (twins) and 7.

So on average, we had a baby every two years. Our oldest was just shy of 14 when our youngest was born.
