My daughter lived with me for 7 months, before moving out on her own.  According to the questions that Turbo Tax asks me, I can claim her as a dependent. However, since she claimed herself on her own return, I'm guessing that I cannot claim her, too.

No, you cannot claim your daughter as a dependent if she has filed a tax return claiming her own exemption and her son as a dependent..
