Is excessive whining a reason to wean my son?

Hello all. My son just turned two years old and has become increasingly demanding about nursing. He will scream, cry, throw tantrums if I don't nurse him immediately in the morning or when I get home from work. I love nursing him, it gives us good snuggle time and gives him good nutrition. BUT he seems too dependent on it! I try saying no, just snuggle right now, but he just cries and cries until I give in. My daughter weaned herself at 14 months so I haven't been through this before. Anyone else nursed a 2 year old? Is this a phase? I keep thinking, maybe if I wean him, he'll be the happy guy he is with my husband and babysitter! (please no comments about 2 year olds being too old to be nursed, it is a very healthy thing to do until age 3 thank you)

Thanks Dove and Sarah - I will work more on teaching him patience and manners. I just have to be patient through his crying fits!
