Is this considered as violent behaviour?

My boyfriend tend to pinch me a lot and even slaps me saying that he sees me like an adorable little baby that he don't know how to handle it cuteness ~,~
He keep telling me that he loves me + he keep kissing my hand and cheeks too but to be honest I'm terrified that these are sings of an abusive person ! I told him that I don't like the pinching and especially the slapping thing but he keep doing it anyways , what do you think should I do about it?
PS: he does this everywhere and anytime we're together and not just during sex
