The Honeymoon is Over

I think my son is over it and I'm heartbroken. No longer am I getting the excited, happy to see mommy run with open arms greeting at daycare and we've stopped cuddling in the morning because he is actually sleeping somewhat in and I'm actually trying to be productive again prior to 7am. I've been replaced by a much funner older sister, a cute cuddly dog and a soft blankie.

My heart is broken because:
- he goes into Seena's room first when he wakes up, whether it's in the middle of the night or in the morning. (I learned this the other morning when Seena walked AJ into my room to inform me that he was up at 4:00am and was in her room).
- he runs away from me
- he cuddles with his dog and blankie
- I no longer get the spoon. Instead - if I'm lucky- I get a weird angled drape over my body, with legs and arms flaying around. I really don't enjoy this too much because I'm usually having to dodge the flaying arms and legs.
- I only get attention if he's hungry or needs something, and it's not always a sweet request. It's usually whining, grunting and/or holding onto both of my legs so that I cannot walk and therefore cannot get what he wants which leads to more whining and grunting.

I knew this day would come but why so soon :(

Mommy in clear denial of cuddle time enjoyment by both parties.

Maybe he's mad because he needs a haircut.....badly.

I remember when this happened with Tot. She also started preferring her daddy and I was heartbroken.
I love the look on AJ's face in that picture!
