It gets easier as the baby gets older!
I have 16 months between my two but am lucky that Penny isn't jealous. Now we both play with Abi and Abi always has some 'mummy time' after feeds.
Now that Abi can sit up and is more robust, Penny cuddles and kisses her and brings her toys... OK, we're still working on the last one! even in their car seats they reach across and hold hands
Penny actually gets more giggles and smiles than the rest of us put together.
Maybe make play with the baby something you and Joshie can do together? Like singing or reading.
I echo Shellys comments..it gets so much better and more fun! There are 15 1/2 months between my boys and now that Max is 7 months its great!
Once Max started sitting (actually it pretty much started when I put Max in his Activity/Bouncer where he is upright) Sam really started to interact with him. They play peekaboo and laugh together all the time. They even have their "own jokes" already!! It makes us laugh so much!
On car trips if Max starts to cry, Sam will try to divert him and make him laugh...And like Shelly said Sam gets more smiles, laughs than anyone else!
You could get Josh to Zoe things that he is doing..it makes both of them feel pretty spesh!
