Grouchy waking up

Anybody else have a child who is horrendously grouchy when they wake up? Justin wakes up after his nap and is usually really grouchy, throws a fit on the floor, etc for about 15 minutes...I refuse to nurse him anymore when he wakes up as I really want to wean him, so does nurse before he goes down, but that is all, only 3 times a day and I have kept this same schedule for weeks now, but he is still a grouch when we wakes up. I must say that when he wakes up in the morning he does get MILK (nursing) right away....maybe this is causing the grouchy child...

Does this get better when they are no longer nursing? Or, is this grouchy behavior normal for most kids?

So, any advice out there...any advice for weaning??? It is really hard to wean them when they enjoy the snuggle time, and so do I...but I am done nursing.
