how did this happen?!

no one asked me if my baby could get so big.

no one.


  1. 1

    You must seriously like those shoes, to keep him in the exact same style for 4 sizes! It is amazing and scary and sad how fast our kids grow up!

  2. 2

    i do the same thing with my kids’ shoes- all the same style all the way up! (we’re partial to livie and luca, and pedipeds). it is so bittersweet, isn’t it?

  3. 3

    I couldn’t have written those words but with Target’s glitter shoes. Only we have to throw them out because they stink when they are worn 24/7. I wish it would slow down some how too :(

  4. 4

    OH MY GOODNESS! LOVE IT and hate it for you all at the same time.

  5. 5

    I was so sad when my boys grew out of my favorite style shoes for them, but they still hug me and try to sit in my lap so it’s all good!

    If you find out who is telling them they can keep growing up let me know, I want to have a chat with that person!

  6. 6

    My feelings exactly! I’m already sad about kindergarten in the fall and it is only February. :)

  7. 7

    I know what you mean. My five-year-old has grown so much lately that I just want to put a brick on his head to keep him from getting any taller. Okay, not really, but it’s just happening so quickly!

  8. 8

    I know EXACTLY how you feel. I have four, and my baby is in kindergarten. WHA? Who said THAT could happen?

  9. 9

    awww, how sweet…i’m feeling the same way as my 1st baby turns 9 today!

  10. 10

    wait, is this a hint or somthing?! maybe, maybe not. ;)
    anyway, this is such a cute little post. keep them coming!

  11. 11

    If I ever have another child I’m so doing this! Although, it will probably break my heart to look at the ever growing shoe size. Lol. So cute!

  12. 12

    They all grow too fast. More importantly – Super cute sneaks. What kind are they?

  13. 13

    I LOVE that you have four pairs of the same shoes :) Smart woman!

    I know what you mean, funny that you have the same shoe in all those sizes but it makes for a very cook picture! I know how you fell though, looking back at baby clothes always makes me cry

  17. 17

    Great picture… I was having similar thoughts related to my 3 1/2 year old. The time flies by so fast. I want time to stand still, but it’s also wonderful seeing them grow and learn..

    PS- received my scarf in the mail the other day, LOVE IT!! I’ve been wearing it nonstop…

    I’m right there with you. I keep doing double-takes at my five-year-old who seems to have grown up and matured so much of late. I’m looking at his ankle bones and wrist bones all of a sudden too. They GROW and GROW UP way too fast for us Moms too keep up!

  19. 19

    And then one day, those little favourites don’t come in a big enough size for your baby …. sniff!

  20. 20

    What a neat idea to get/keep those matching shoes!

  21. 21

    I know what you mean….my son starts kindergarten this year…I can hardly believe how fast the time has gone. On that note, it’s a super cute picture that really puts parenting into perspective.

  22. 22

    I’m impressed with how clean and NOT faded those shoes are! My little guys brown converse are 3 months old and are nasty compared to those!!

  23. 23

    It always goes faster than you think. My two oldest are in college…my firstborn will be twenty this year…twenty. He is an amazing young man and my girl takes my breath away. Watching them become the people they were meant to be is one of the richest blessings of my life. I am blessed that I have my little snaggletoothed six year old at home with me since the other two are away. But as I watched him playing baseball today I almost cried that he is already six. It goes by in a flash…seems faster this second time around. But I love it just the same. We buy the same shoes too although the styles are starting to change to “big boy” shoes. Take it all in and laugh along the way.

  24. 24

    I know, and it happens way too fast!!!

    What a clever way to show your child’s growth. v sent us over to tell you how crazy you are for homeschooling, but alas I can not. I too homeschool my children, we have had so much fun, excitement and true learning i could never tell someone not to:) I loved the pictures from a previous post about your trip, so much fun and love shown!!!

    I hope you have a great week!

    now I am heading to post on V’s blog that I couldn’t do it;)

    I love that you have progressive sizes in the same shoes! They do grow too fast, sad but exciting right? V sent me, love you blog!

  27. 27

    I linked to this post in my post today…please stop by and take a peek if you have a minute. You inspire me!

  28. 28

    Oh, such happy, sad thoughts. I love what they are growing into, but it’s going too quickly isn’t it? It’s certainly a time to savor!!!

  29. 29

    So sweet, but sad at the same time. I actually teared up the day I stored our last pair of Gap PJ’s, they were always our favorite!!

  30. 30

    Well written! Both of my kids are fully aware that they were forbidden to grow! I continually punish them for their gross transgressions. And yet they still don’t listen!
