    As I’m getting older, my dream is more and more small.
    As I’m getting older, my dream is smaller and smaller.
    As I’m getting older, my dream is getting smaller.

    As I get older, my dream(s) become smaller and smaller.
    It depends on what you mean by your dream - dream as in your ambition(singular) or dreams in your sleep (plural)


    As I’m more and more older, I’m more and more losing interest about everything.
    As I’m older and older, I’m getting lose interest about everything.
    As I’m getting old, I’m lose interest about everything day by day.

    As I get older, I gradually lose interest in everything.


    Would you please tell me which one is correct and what’s the difference?

    Thank you for the help but I'm still not clear about those words.

    For instance,

    As you blow into balloon , it is getting bigger.
    As you blow into balloon , it is more and more big.
    As you blow into balloon , it is bigger and bigger.
    As you blow into balloon , it is gradually bigger.

    Do they have same meaning? (are those sentences all correct?)

    We don't say "more and more big", we say "bigger and bigger".
