When my 2 were tiny I would give my son a cup of milk and read to him while I fed my daughter.
Another thing I used to do was sit on the floor and feed while we played a game with cars or stacking cups or a ball or I would just have him tuck in next to me and we would sing songs.

I also suggest spending as much one one time with him as you can. I found something that my son really enjoyed and made that our special time. Bath time was one of those things so I used it as a time that he had my undivded attention and we would splash and giggle and make lots of mess with bubbles

Do things with your son while your daughter is sleeping. Ask your husband to watch the baby so you two can go out together. I can imagine how hard it would be having 2 very little ones!
