Our little one is attached

Jaycee has been a super big baby lately. Not in the whiney sense, but in the "I need to always be held" sense. She is now attached to both of us, no matter what. She has started reaching up for us and crying if we aren't paying total attention to her. We can't believe that her separation anxiety is already setting in. She refuses to allow anyone else to be a temporary fill-in. It's Mommy or Daddy or NOTHING. And boy, oh boy, can this kid scream! She has extremely loud vocal cords and is not afraid to use them. Luckily for us, as her parents, we can usually quickly prevent the screaming from continuing. It's a blessing and a curse at the same time. We think, how wonderful that our baby loves and needs us so much. Then we think, we can't leave her anywhere for any period of time without having a terrified, dramatic little girl on our hands. The guilt is overwhelming. Needless to say, we won't be going anywhere without Jaycee, and we mean anywhere. Our life is definitely planned out for us for the next few years. Dinner, movies, vacations? Yes, but if, and only if, Jaycee can attend as well. So much for our anniversary dinner! Alone that is. . .
