hello, everyone!! my name is joanne and i pop in on here every so often...i have 2 girls-violet whos 7 and isabelle(izzy) whos 3 1/2. my question is about violet-are any of your kids going through or have they gone through a growth spurt at this age? my dd weighs 51 pounds (we just weighed her this weekend) and shes 48 inches tall (we just went to an amusement park and she just made the height requirement-it was funny-just about every ride, they pulled out that pole to double check-after about the 5th time, i would just laugh and my dd would just stand there cuz she knew...i was thinking we just came off that ride over there where they checked her-trust me, shes tall enough!!)...she used to eat fairly well-but lately she eats and eats and eats-and still says shes hungry. example-this morning-she ate 2 scrambled eggs with ham...drank a cup of apple juice...and still said she was hungry. she ate a package of fruit snacks and still was hungry!! we were walking out the door to go to church, but im sure if we werent-shed probably would have eaten more...yesterday she had a bowl of cereal at 9 o'clock-ate it all, drank all the milk...then ate 2 big pancakes at 10:30...then some strawberries at 11:30...and still said she was hungry less than 2 hours later. plus shes been sleeping 10-11 hours a night(usually in bed by 10 at the latest and up by 8-8:30). plus shes been really crabby and irritable too...sounds like a growth spurt-do they usually have one around this time in their life?? (shes really active outside right now with swimming and riding her bike and just playing-so even if isnt a growth spurt-im sure shes burning off all the extra calories shes eating!!)thanks!!

Sure sounds like one to me!!!! I remember when my son would go through them...he's 18 now...but when they grow, they eat and sleep!!!!
