Turns out that I did end up with 'one of each', but not in the traditional sense. I have one Dylan and one Archie, and although they are both little boys, they are both completely different and unique children.
Looking at photos of the boys at the same age, you can definitely tell they are brothers. There are a lot of similarities in the way they look although I can really see the differences too. Archie is only 8 weeks old though and I can already see that their personalities are miles apart.

Archie will not sleep on his back. I have taken to lying him on his tummy even in the pram, as it is the only way he will settle and he loves to feel snug, tucking his arms and legs underneath him. If he stays this curled up then I see him staying in the crib for quite some time as he takes up very little space.
Dylan would fall asleep as soon as you started pushing the buggy and loved lying in there, studying the label on the inside of his pram. Archie is not a fan of the pushchair and will cry out to be picked up and put in the sling close to me
Dylan screamed and screamed in his first few baths, although luckily he is a huge fan now, whereas Archie hated getting undressed but calmed down the moment his toes touched the water and is at his most relaxed when in the tub.
I may have two gorgeous boys, but I definitely have one of each. One little Dylan, and one little Archie.
