Aggression Towards Me but Veryfriendly towards others in my family

Greetings,

We have a dog, a rat terrier mix that is 10 years old, he looks almost exactly like the dog on the top right page of the forum page. About 6 months ago my dog started being aggressive, but only towards me, but very friendly towards everyone else in my family. Every time I pet him he would growl at me, and only me, when others petted him, he was very friendly. Then this behavior subsided, but has now returned and is even worse. He grows every time when I pet him, yesterday he growled at me when I got close to him, and last time I tried picking him up he got really angry and bit at my foot. He left a mark, but it did not break the skin, and my brother and sister pick him up on a daily basis with no problems whatsoever. Sometimes he'll let me play fetch with him, and sometimes he'll come up to me when I am eating and I'll toss him a piece of meat. I am always nice to our dog, but I will admit when he was like 1-2 he bit my sister, which drew blood, because she tried taking a piece of a plastic wrapper from his mouth and I have him a little slapped and yelled "Bad Dog!" That was the only time I have been physically aggressive with him. When he was younger sometime he would sleep in my bed with me. I have no idea what to do. He is super friendly with everyone in my family except me, and I AM ALWAYS nice to him. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
