I personally believe sleep has a TON to do with it - for me it takes a huge toll on my mental health when i dont get enough sleep- and rage is a part of it.  It SUCKS since most new moms arent sleeping
looks gorgeous there!!!  ENJOY - he'll be clingy again before you know it - some day you may be longing for a moment where you're not hearing "mumma, mumma, uppy, uppy"
