Today, we were at a playgroup with some new friends. A little boy arrived and every single toy he tried to touch, Liam starting crying about and yelling to the boy "MINE! NO!" I would help mediate and Liam would really cry -with tears and all. We'd calm down and resolve and a minute later, he'd do it again. I took him to a place no one was playing in and talked to him then let me be alone for a few to play by himself (when he gets too upset, he likes to be alone for a few once we've connected).
Liam has been great with Seamus. He's very loving and affectionate, even protective of him. Liam's been a bit fussy here and there with our family, but nothing too out of the ordinary. When he's been very emotional, they've generally been more intense in the past two months, but not too bad.
I can't tell if this is because of Seamus' arrival or just because Liam is two. I don't think I'll ever know for sure. I don't really think there is anything I can do other than just ride it out.
Has anyone experienced this? Any thoughts?
