Wuv You

I keep meaning to blog this before it stops and before I forget. For the past few weeks, Jason and I have been bombarded by love from Bryce. Now this little boy has always been Mr. Lovey Dovey and needed hugs and kisses as much as most kids need milk, but lately it's been like a tidal wave. He's hugging us all the time and just wants to be held and hugged more than ever. But most of all, it's the random "I wuv you, mom" or "I wuv you, dad" that just gets you EVERY time. You just never know when you're gonna get one, even though they are pretty frequent, but when you get one, it's pretty hard resisting that sweet face. And it's usually said with such a somber look on his face, it makes it even more irresistable. Needless to say, his little cheeks have been getting even more kisses than usual lately.

But I also think it has something to do with a sudden wave of seperation anxiety as well. He gets spooked pretty easily by things and seems to need a lot of reassurance too. I wonder if the "wuv yous" are a part of that. This is actually one of my first experiences with any degree of seperation anxiety since both my kids seemed to pass that milestone by - maybe because they were so used to the day in day out schedule of mommy and daddy going to work. But I have noticed lately that when I leave any time, Bryce is a little more sensitive about it, even if he doesn't get upset he'll question everything about where I'm going, what I'm doing, and when I'll be back.

All this has combined as well with some more serious tantrums lately so we are definitely in the throws of the twos. And boy can that little man cry some SERIOUSLY LARGE tears when he's not happy. I tell you, it can break your heart. And then you have to get him a "nissue."
