Is anyone going through this phase yet?

Marcos started this a couple of weeks ago. He wants to be with me and only me all... day... long. He usually loves hanging out with DH but all of a sudden when DH is holding him, he looks at me and screams and cries because he wants me. If he's in my arms and DH goes to grab him, he turns away from him and clings to me like velcro. If he's happily playing in his exersaucer and I disappear for a minute to go to the bathroom, he bursts into tears.

It's exhausting! I hope he grows out of it soon!

YES! D is very clingy. Just like you said, as soon as I leave her sight or even most times as Im walking away ...she starts getting upset. She can be entertained by her siblings though and I can get some short timed things done. As far as her being around other peope., she is fine with daddy but when people/strangers ect begin commenting on how cute she is and then try to get closer or even play with her, she cries. Thats the hard one for me. It usually takes me having to pick her up while shopping or what ever, for her to get calmed down again. I had the seperation anxiety with really only 3 of my 8 that was difficult like this. It does pass, and usually by 1yrs old in my experience.

T doesn't have it too bad, but he definitely seems to want me the most these days!

He plays well by himself (or n the exersaucer) for dh, but if he sees me he wants me and I have to sit and play with him. Makes it hard to get work done, I can only work when he naps
