Jessica Alba is celebrating her son growing up!

On Wednesday, the mother of three, 42, shared snaps of Hayes Alba, 5, ready for his first day of school as he displayed a beaming smile for the camera.

Hayes wore a checkered shirt over a military green t-shirt and darker green pants and stood behind a sign that read: “FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN.” The sweet sign also featured the youngster's age and Tuesday's date, indicating that he had started school the day before Alba's post.

“When I grow up I want to be… AWESOME!,” the sign also read.

"Hayes’ first day of #kindergarten 🥹❤️ my handsome boy 😫💔😢… it’s just crazy how fast time has flown by. Still my baby," the actress captioned the heartwarming post.

“Awe I remember your first day of kindergarten it was definitely harder for me than for you,” Alba’s mother Cathy Alba wrote in the comments section of the post. “You said bye ✌🏻.”
