Death defying feats

Is it possible for a fearful to child to suddenly become fearless? Does the transition from 3-year-old pre-schooler to 4-year-old little boy include some sort of braveness inducing chemical shift?

Little Elvis wasn't exactly fearful, but he was definitely scared of heights and going too fast. He didn't want to spend the night with his grandparents, because he needed to protect his mommy.

Now he begs to spend the night with Gram and Coachpa, and would probably spend the night with other family members if invited. He spent his first full weekend away from us, and had absolutely no problems. I called and fretted, but he didn't miss me nearly as much as I missed him.

And he will not stop jumping off of the furniture! Or jumping from furniture piece to furniture piece! Baby Plum loves following his big brother around, but thankfully hasn't started jumping off of things... yet.

Little Elvis often tells me that he jumped into a big boy, and he's so right. It happened overnight.

When did our baby become so big?

I've notice them same fearlessness with Noah in the last few months. My least favorite place to see it? The swimming pool - where he can't really swim yet - and I'm busy with Mattias - but he's determined to jump in without any floaties and test his luck.
