I actually can't remember the ages of DS's growth spurts, but I do remember being shocked at how much food he could put away!
Then suddenly the arms and legs of clothes are all too short. :)

Totally!!  Maybe not exactly at the same month.  When DS was around 24 mo, he could almost eat a whole head of broccoli at dinner with pasta and meat and THEN eat a huge banana or two!  I think that is a rehearsal for puberty! ;D

All his too big clothes 2-3 years old fit well, it's like he's grown overnight lol! For tea he ate a kids cheese and tom pizza with mixed veg on the side followed by fruit smoothie and a yoghurt then was asking for breadsticks....it's amazing where they put it! I've got more of a belly than him ;-) x

:) It's really cool his too big clothes fit :)  DS is over 3yo and I just bought 2-3yr jeans for him today, and pulled the button elastic on the waist to max and added a belt - could fit two of him in the waist  ::)
Still, whatever size they are the GS eating really is phenomenal.  Watch out for banged heads and lots of falls as he learns to coordinate his 'new' body and height!!

Mine isn't even big!  Just big appetite!  He has always been below the midine on the growth curve!  :P  We always wonder where 2 big bananas after full dinner would fit into that small belly!  Where does all that energy go??  He's not particularly active either!  ::)

Hehehe my boy wore teenage hat since he was 3.  His head size is always 99 percentile!  High density boy with a smaller body lol

:( oooh! hope he isn't too hurt!!
I like to take mine to soft play after a GS so he is really physical in a (mostly) padded place and can get to grips with his new size as quickly as possible. I think it helps in the same way as having lots of floor time when they learn to roll or crawl etc. Where as sitting activities like books or cars etc don't really help to learn about body size so much.  I did the soft play thing when DS first got his glasses too, I'm sure it helped him to adapt far more quickly to his new vision as he had to work out and negotiate all the climbs and drops etc.  Mind you it doesn't stop him falling over!
