A year ago, Alfs came up to my shoulder. Now he's up to my mid-cheek. That is not an insignificant height change for a year. Oh, my. How did this happen and I not realize it? It seems like it just snuck up on me. And I suspect Alfs is in the middle of another growth spurt right now.
The growth spurts since then have been more subtle, usually identified when clothing "suddenly" no longer fits. But this time, after pointing out that the jeans we bought six months ago a little long are now obviously short, I realized the growth spurt is still going on. And from poking around the Internet, it could be going on for a while.
Last weekend, Alfs feel asleep on the laundry pile at 5:00 in the afternoon. He'd gone to bed reasonably on time the night before and slept until after 9:00AM. Then last night he voluntarily went to bed well before his agreed upon bedtime. I would be positively glowing if I had that much beauty sleep. Alfs says he's tired, constantly.
Then there's the food intake. I used to joke that when the kids hit puberty, we'd have to take out a second mortgage to feed them. I'm not joking much anymore. Alfs eats constantly. Woody is a pretty big eater, too, and he's nowhere near this kind of growth spurt. I'm buying more snacks than I used to just to keep the boys going, and trying to find healthy snacks, but I admit it's a challenge. It's just constant.
