Human Style: Jord Wood Watches #Giveaway.

I bought #1 his first adult sized shirt this week.

He’s officially outgrown the children’s department and is the size of a small-ish man.

Just this past New Year’s Eve he was shorter than me.

Two months ago, I was still looking down at him.  Okay, like not down, down, but definitely straight across.  Sort of eye to eye-ish.

He is taller than I am now. (Above really blurry picture was taken at his elementary school graduation 8 months ago. He is now as tall as I am in this photo;I was wearing heels this day.)

Definitively.  Like even if I puff myself up, and use my mom eyes on him, he’s still taller.

And, it’s happening so fast!  It seems that every single morning he wakes up larger which would possibly also account for the piles of food he’s putting away and his inability to haul himself out of bed at the sound of his alarm clock.

As much as I want him this to stop, I also want it to keep going because I want to see.  I want to see how big he will be when this whole turning-into-a-man thing is all said and done.  I want to know how much acne he’s going to get.  And if the will be a good driver, or learn a second language, or make the high school soccer team, or have his heart broken by a girl who clearly enjoys being punched in the throat by loud mouth mama bears who love their sons fiercely, and just everything else.

I am so anxious to see all of it, but also so wanting to grip onto time and make it not move an inch so that I can keep him here with me exactly as he is today.

Okay no, I actually need a time machine so that I can rewind things a bit and go back to when he was smaller than me and just stop things then.

Speaking of time, Jord sent us one of their awesome wood watches to check out.

    I don’t understand how can he get so tall in 8 mos? How is that possible? The day that my son will be taller than me has never occurred to me. But he’s climbing his way already… I need to start wearing heels more often in preparation.

    OMG, I don’t know if I want to keep it for myself or give it to my DH. I showed him some wood watches on Pinterest last year and he was into it.

  23. Heather says
