Why my son is (very slowly) crying

These days Baxter cries to show his displeasure with things; he’s *kind of* sad, but mostly just not-happy, if that makes sense? These whine-cries last a long time because he is still easily distracted once the first burst of “noooooo!” and falling-to-the-floor-in-despair is complete. Here’s an example; if you listen closely you can hear Amelia calling him from the basement toward the end. Responding to her shout is what ended this round of slow crying, which was originally caused by my informing him that he had to take a nap today. (He has to take a nap every day, ftr. (It’s a lazy Sunday so, yes, the kids are still in their pjs at 10am.))
