Is your 10-14 an oldest, youngest, middle, an only or where does he/she fall in the birth order?

I should have made my post clear. I thought if funny mine are all three technically. Matthew is oldest of course, technically Katie is the middle one and Natalie would then technically be the youngest. But the girls were born in the same minute one after the other of course so Katie IS the middle child. Natalie calls her big sissy some times. Guess it helps her be the baby which she does really well.

I'm curious if anyone has ready any of the birth order books on typical behaviors due to birth order. My co-worker was telling me about a book she read about it and how it fits her kids so well, and that it gave suggestions on how to combat certain behaviors exhibited by kids. She said all my stories of Madison completely remind her of her youngest girl, who is also her 3rd child.

I know Jordyn is the typical first born/only child easily. And Emma has taken on more of a first born when it comes to "mothering" Madison at times, but she's definitely a middle child who always seems to be fighting for attention, from what I understand anyways. I was in the grocery store one day with just the 2 little girls in the line to check out and Emma was just acting up and the lady behind me asked me if I had just the 2 and I said no, I have a teenager also and she just nodded her head and said (towards Emma) "yes, she's definitely the middle child." LOL!

My 12 yeard old is my first born and from what I've read about birth order, he also seems to fit that profile. My MIL has a book on birth order that I want to read but I keep forgetting to ask her about it! I'm an only child so birth order really interests me since I don't have any personal experience with it (other than observing my own two kids).

First and middle! It's interesting about the middle, because Teagen has only been the middle for one year and she's 10! She was just destined to be the middle, because she has always been the attention seeker! LOL
