My daughter Loves my Friend more than me

I am a mother of 21 months old and my husband works in another state and visits us almost every week. One of our (husband's and mine) common friend used to visit us a lot, almost every week for 4 - 5 hours and sometimes even more. She plays a lot with my daughter

When she leaves, my daughter would cry a lot and every day she would keep on calling her name all the time. Whenever she is around, my daughter would never come to me. And if we are at some gathering and I want to click pictures with her, she would cry a lot that she does not want to stay with me for a single minute and wants to go back to my friend. which sometimes becomes very embarrassing

So there are two problems
1. I know I should not feel, but I think I am feeling jealous as she is giving her much more priority than me, while she just plays but I am doing everything for her (as being a mother) and its not like taht i do not play with her. As soon as we come back home after daycare, I specifically play 2- 3 hours with her
2 Other issue is my friend keeps on carrying her all the time, because of that she is not quitting the habbit of being carried. If i say my friend not to carry her, but my daughter would start a tantrum that she has to carry her
