Sadly had a similar problem when I came back from living abroad when my youngest brother was still 1 1/2. (was gone for like 6 months) He started crying and freaking out every time he saw me for like a solid month or so and was fine with me holding him before I left. I think it was because he remembered me, but then I kinda disappeared for a while and came back and it caused him stress or something.

Luckily, this was years ago and eventually that got cleared up, but I think it more or less proves that babies are untrusting of strangers.

I think initially its fear of unknown, but kids are a really good judge of character, so if you can't get them to stop crying for a long period of time the baby's getting a bad vibe from you.. or something like teething, full diaper, or unseen pain like a headache are most likely the culprits. I bet anything your little bro picked up on your discomfort with the situation... kids know everything their parents try to keep secret now.
