My son was super independent. He never liked to be held for a long time, and he never snuggled when he was a baby. He also went through a stage where he only wanted my husband. He was a daddy’s boy. I remember crying, feeling like my baby didn’t love me. Now I realize how ridiculous it was to even think that. Hudson was just too busy for his own good, and all kids go through a phase when they prefer one parent over the other.

I think one reason for her clingy-ness is there have been a lot of changes recently. She started daycare and she sleeps in her very own big girl bed now. On top of it all, her back molars are coming in. Put it all together and you have one very needy little munchkin. I feel for her. She is just a little thing, and I would imagine all these changes must be so difficult!
So right now, I am enjoying every single moment of my daughter’s obsession with me, since I know it will not last forever. I love that she is a snuggler. I love that she follows me all over the house and sits on the floor next to me as I get ready for work. I know now just how quick this moment is… since ‘phases’ like this don’t last long with little ones.
