DD's sleeping has gotten all wacko - yesterday she took a 5 hour nap!!! Never in her life has she taken a 5 hour nap! Then she was up until midnight and awake at 7 this AM. Napped again for 2 hours after I MADE her get up. She is also eating like a horse - the kid can put away food. Is it a growth spurt? Just curious if they still have these?
I figured growth spurts were something that happened occasionally until... well, until kids were done growing.
I've also read & heard that children don't have growth/developmental spurts in every area all at once, but one area at a time - like logic, verbal skills, gross motor ability, teeth and bones, or muscle and organ tissue, etc. Supposedly, one area will develop like crazy while the other areas slow down a little. Don't know if I've got my facts right, but it makes a lot of sense to me.
I think some types of spurts just wear them out more (or keep them up at night!).
