I still remembered very well when Jack was 1. We have organised a party for him too, but was not so attentively to the details. It was more like party for adults (eating and drinking) for them.
If you ask me what is the different between Jack and the twins when they were 1, I would say:-
1. I must admit I do not know the twins that well. I was less attentively to them. Most probably because the maids are very capable and I have Jack too, to attend to.
2. Physical growth - they are about the same size as Jack. Weigh wise, Jack tops them all. Length wise, Dylan tops them all.
3. Brain Development - The twins are slower than Jack. Most probably the time and opportunity to spend time, read to them and talk to them is limited.
4. Eating habits - all are good. They eat anything and all the time.
Some of you might thinks what sort of parents we are, sounded like we care less of the twins than Jack.
Hey, it is not an easy job. Imagine this, you come home, you pick up 1 kid, 1 will be screaming for you to carry him/her and Jack will be pulling you, to try to talk to you, to get you to do something and etc.
We try our best to spend time with them, play with them and also allocate 1 to 1 time with them, but time is never enough, right. At least, we don't leave them to the maids at them. We take care of all 3 of them at night.
