Ever since my son was born, he’s been latched onto me like he’s my very own twin. He’s obsessed with me & I do believe that’s normal – after all, he holds the key to my heart.
I’ve noticed that as he’s getting older he’s being more independent which is great because he loves interacting with other children and he’s learned how to entertain himself. Jaden has a toy bus and he loves it. He’ll drive it up and down, chasing after it and press all the buttons until he’s tired. I can even put him in his crib full of blocks and toys and he’ll find some way to amuse himself. I am thankful for this because it gives me moments to get things done.
Despite him showing his new-found independence he still has many moments where all he wants is me whether it’s to pick him up, or he holds on to my leg why I walk around and the worse, when I leave the room and he bursts into tears (most likely crocodile) I’ve even hid behind a door in front of him and still he’ll start shouting and screaming…
So what exactly is a the trick for this to
Stop?! Does it come with age… does it come with him wanting a play buddy. I’m still yet to figure it out with my new mommy self BUT I’m almost one year in which is unbelievable to think about.
I must admit I give my little guy all the attention he needs and all the attention a baby should be getting I just hope it had all positive effects on him. We shall see. I never had separation anxiety to the point where I couldn’t leave my son anywhere but I definitely need to improve giving him some time away from me not only for him but also for myself.
