When did you get so big? I remember hearing that line when I was a kid all the time. I never realized just how true it is. Kids really do grow amazingly fast.
When my boys were born I was amazed just how tall they were. Was it really possible for them to grow so much in only nine months inside of me? Then at their first birthday, I was amazed again at just how much taller they had become. Now that they are two and three they have already become little boys and no longer look like babies anymore. Where did the time fly?
I started this movable door height marker over a year ago. By changing the fabric every year, you can see exactly how much your child has grown each year. You can also see which of your children will probably be taller. Already at three, I can see that Jonas will be taller than his brother, even if it is only a little bit.
Hopefully someday, when they are over six feet and have stopped growing, have gotten married and have their own children, they can hang their door height marker up again and their kids can compare themselves to daddy.
Lukas just had his two year check up where he had to stand up against the wall and get measured. At home, he stood against his door marker and said, “so big!” Maybe someday, his son will do the same.
For the how to, see http://kelley-donner.blogspot.de/2011/04/movable-door-height-marker.html from April of last year.
