I am now the mother of a teenager. I think this hits me harder than turning 30...(Pics)

My oldest turned 13 today.  I can't believe it.  We were talking about when he was born and all of his milestones growing to the point he is now.  It's so bitter sweet.  My baby is a young man :(  And to boot he is huge.  He is 5' 9 1/2" and 112lbs.  It's so strange when we hug and he towers over me.

Oh get ready for it now.  He turned 8 and was this sweet little mousy boy and then he hit 10 1/2 and I didn't know what happened.  His voice was changing, he was my height.  A year later he was bigger than me.  It was so quick.  

Thanks for the wishes.

Happy birthday to him!! My oldest will be turning 13 in September. She is pretty short and I'm 5"8 so she won't be towering over me anytime soon.

Thanks!

Yours is tiny.  I'm telling you though, Mike was really tiny from 8-10.  At 10 1/2 he had a major grow sprut.  It seems to happen overnight.

Thanks!

I can't wait to see the difference when my daughter is this age.  I'm hoping she is on the petite side like she is now.  You are tall though, do you think your dd will be tall?

All I wanted was for him to grow and be independent.  I wish I could take it all back :(  It was just me and him for 6 years, I miss him being little.  Now he is such a teenage boy.  I gave him a hug and he got all awkward, lol.
