Growth Spurt

Oh vey, I think Harper is having a growth spurt. She was up every 1-2 hours last night and crankyyyyy when I put her back down to sleep. I got like 0 hours of sleep. Then when I finally got out of bed at 8am, she decided to stay up until like 1 pm and has only slept 1-2 hours since then. Plus she is eating like crazy. She hasn't made it more than 2 hours between feedings since yesterday evening. It sounds like a growth spurt. Her little face is getting so chubby. I can't stop staring at her.

This is a pic of Harper and her 7 month old cousin Colleen. Not the best pic of Harper, but I can't believe she is going to get that big!!!

Oh boy. I remember the growth spurts, although honestly until Zach was about 4 months I couldn't get him to go longer than 2 hours between feedings. But the good news is that once you survive the first three months your memories of them get hazy really fast!

She's sooo cute. I want Nick to be that small again. I remember anytime Nick was doing weird patterns, thinking it must be a growth spurt.

Definitely a growth spurt...3 weeks right? That sounds about right. It should only last a few days so hang in there.

The first few months Anna Claire had a growth spurt about every 3rd week! She ate every 2 hours until she was 4 months old and during these spurts she would cluster feed at night... 3 oz. at 7 PM, 2 oz at 8 PM, 3 oz at 10 PM. It was exhausting, but only lasted 3 or 4 days each time. Somewhere around 10weeks I remember thinking how much easier it was getting! Hang in there and sleep whenever you can.
