I'm sure he's still a sweet lovely boy, even if he cries more.
Is he crying in response to something that happens? (Such as having a tantrum when something doesn't go his way.)
He may be experiencing more conflict in relationships (feeling like people are out to complicate things for him or keep him from having fun) and the crying or fussing could express his displeasure about it.
Hang in there & show him that his feelings make sense. It makes sense to be upset when you can't make something go your way, when you know what you want but you can't make it happen! Acknowledge how frustrating it must be to be the one with the least power. And just connect to how that must feel for him.
If he's having a hard time feeling understood when he tries to communicate, or if he's going through some discomfort from teething molars or from significant cognitive development, he may tend to be fussy too.
Show him he's still a lovely boy to you.
