Reading in two languages

The other day Guido's buddy Elias came over to play. I read them a book. Here's a video of it.

Confusing, heh? You can imagine how confusing it was for me (you can see me slipping and addressing Guido Jack in english at some point).

I realize that at this stage (they are both around 8 months old) it probably doesn't make a big difference for them what language they hear...still, this is just the beginning!

How do you deal with multiple kids, when you're trying to speak one language to one and a different one to the other? Do you translate everything you say or most of it or however much you can handle before your head explodes? ;)

I'm exhausted already. Hopefully I'll get used to it and it'll get easier on my poor little brain.
