    Yikes!! :crazy:

    One of my chicks is soooooooooooo emotional lately :cry: eating more than her sister (very unusual!) :pig: and not sleeping as much but seems really tired. :lazy:

    I thought it was our crazy summer schedule or maybe missing time with me since we've been so busy lately. So I backed off of the activities to make sure we have some added downtime at home and I've added in some extra time with her. It's not helping.

    Did any of you see this in yours approaching 5? :faint:

    Sounds like a growth spurt to me. The girls just shot up in height and they were that way before

    Yeah, that's my guess as well. Mine have never had any sleeping issues .. but I notice they take turns going through eating binges. Once in awhile Jayden will even gets "close" to his brothers weight .. but never quite gets there .. lol

    We go through the hunger thing during the growth spurt. I think backing off will help a little, but I'm sure it'll all sorta work itself out before you figure out what it is :hug:
