Eric Christian Olsen and his wife, actress Sarah Wright, recently found out that their 2-year-old son Wyatt Oliver is definitely a people person in the most adorable way possible.

“We went to a playground and there were eight kids there. And he went around hugging all the other kids,” the NCIS: Los Angeles star, 38, told PEOPLE at the Environmental Media Awards in Los Angeles on Oct. 24.

“Our kid’s the hugger. He’s the one smiling and hugging people. He’s like the best golden retriever puppy you’ve ever seen. He’s endlessly happy.”

Eric Christian Olsen tells PEOPLE that watching his son go through the terrible twos is “the best thing ever.”

“He has understanding and communication,” the NCIS: Los Angeles star, 38, said Friday at the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California.

Son Wyatt Oliver is now at the stage where he’s learning how to say the same thing in different ways, Olsen said: “We just say, ‘Start again,’ and he stops and says, ‘Can I do this please?’ He’s such a little human.”

A little human with a lot of personality and a lengthy to-do list.

“He gets up in the morning and bangs on my shoulder,” Olsen said. “‘Dada, swim, tiger-shark, breakfast, omelet, pineapple,’ and you’re like, ‘That’s a lot to process. It’s 5:30 a.m. Can we go back to bed?’ ”

Sarah Wright doesn’t need National Take Your Child to Work Day when she can take her baby boy to work every day!

The Marry Me actress wants her 14-month-old son, Wyatt Oliver, by her side at all times — even when she’s working.

“Everybody’s like, ‘Bring in our mascot,’ so he comes in and hangs out with us all,” Wright, 31, told PEOPLE during a press day for her new show on Monday. “It feels less like, ‘Okay, work’s over here and family’s over here.’ ”

And when it comes to bedtime, Wright, who’s still nursing, finds comfort in keeping her son close. Wyatt co-sleeps with Wright and her husband, NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen.
