He's growing and I can't stop it!

1.) A moment you realized your child was growing up.

We have a motion sensor light in our laundry room. You walk down the hall, pass the laundry room, and the light comes on....and then goes off about 5 seconds later. This may seem annoying, but it's actually kind of convenient because whoever built this house decided the light switch should be at the very far end of the laundry room, so you either walk in and fumble around for the light switch OR you flip it to motion sensor and it comes on when you come in the room.

Anyway, this isn't about a light. It's about Elliot....who is 3. I will never EVER forget the first time he walked by the laundry room and the light came on. Up until that day, he was too dang short for the motion sensor to pick up his little bopping head as it went by, but on this day, he had grown tall enough that it "detected" him, and it shocked me! My first son is now tall enough to set off motion sensor lights! He's growing up! Ahhhhh!!!!!

Elliot....smiling =)


  1. What a cutie - definitely a "growing up" moment!  Visiting from Mama Kat's...

  2. That's funny. I do like the light idea though, we come into the house through a long hallway off the garage, that would be very helpful. Elliot must have though he was really something to trigger the lights.

  3. Nope Em, can't stop them growing up--I tried with you and your sisters, didn't work!  Gotta enjoy every moment, every day 'cause they grow up wayyyyyyyyyyy too fast!!

    So, so cute.  Love the smile.  No matter what we do, we can't stop them from growing up.  

  5. Aww, I really wish they didn't have to grow up. He sure is a cutie!
