When children are very small--babies and toddlers--they often have growth spurts. Some of these are physical. They are fussy and eat non-stop for a day or three (nights, too), then start sleeping a bit more (the younger they are, that is) and they are suddenly not fitting in 3mo clothing or that hat that fit last week is too small.

Sometimes these spurts are developmental. Super fussy (or just awake and hungry) nights and days, then the kid rolls over. Or crawls. Or starts using words. Or starts using sentences. Knows colors. Jumps on one foot.

So, my four year old son had a period last week where he was waking up at night and was just miserable.

Now he's building even more complex train layouts (multiple switches and loops) and really complex buildings out of blocks and cardboard.

We didn't realize these developmental spurts would continue like this. *grins*
