My son will be 1 in a few weeks. His whole infancy up to this point, he has been OBSESSED with me. Wanted only me to hold him and cried for others. Followed me around, only smiled alot around me, rarely cried when I was with him. Now, things have started to change. He went through a period of seperation anxiety with me where I couldn't take a shower or leave the room without him crying. Obviously I had do to those things so he would cry for only a few minutes until I came back. I am a SAHM so everyday I have things to do around the house so I can't hold him or play with him every second like he wants me to. I try my best to spend as much quality time with him as I can but before I know it, its 10pm and he's down for the night. Lately I've noticed he doesn't want me as much anymore and sometimes pushes me away to go to his grandparents or his dad and its making me really sad. I feel like he doesn't want to be cont...
You are a GREAT Momma! That being said, I went through the same thing with my DS. Then when he started to gravitate to others and be a little sassy with me, I felt the same way as you. It used to happen the most at my MIL house and she seemed to revel in it! Arggggg. Anyway, Their little personalities change from day to day and it happens so often & so fast that you probalbly won't remember feeling like this next month. You just reminded me now of this actually & my DS is 3. You are his world but now he's curious about new things, but I can tell you, you will always really be #1 even if he doesn't show it right now. Be happy Momma! Soon he'll be going to the Prom & we will really have our hands full then!!! Have a Great night :)
