When the boys were babies we didn’t really notice, but there comes a point when the differences become obvious. Ours was at 16 months old when Lucas was walking and Cooper was still lying on the ground. I found that really upsetting because I was comparing them. I know it’s difficult to do, but you have to try not to compare them and just focus on how brilliant they are together.

It is easier as they get older, you begin to see more and more of their personality emerging. Cooper is the one who loves being funny, he loves singing, loves stories and loves swimming. They are just different boys, like any other brothers.
