Holding My Eight Year Old Son

Is my eight year old son too old to be held every once in a while? He is average size for his age. Johnny loves it when his father or I would hold him. I will occasionally hold him on my hip. My husband and I spoil our children alot. Should we stop holding him at his age? It is not like we carry him around the house or in public. Just every once in a while he wants to be held or picked up. Is this wrong? My older son wasn't like this. My older daughter had her father hold her till she was about eight or nine. But once again we didn't carry her around...

Meh, my almost 9 year old daughter still comes up to us and sits on our knees sometimes for a snuggle. I don't see the issue. He'll stop when he wants to stop.
