This time it isn't about the spiritual kind of growing, but the actual kind.
When the 11.5 shoes are too small, and the inseam matches his father's...
when the marks on the wall keep moving up, and even through much denial there is a mustache and chin hairs....your heart aches just a little.
I am not an overly sentimental person by nature, but he is my youngest, and my only boy. I am thrilled to see him turn into a man, but also a little shocked. I turn around and he is thinner, and taller, just like that! We haven't had any giant spurts that people talk about. You know, the 4 inches in a month kind of thing. I do keep measuring him though, just in case...I want to catch it in action.
