I think becoming longer should be OK but isn't

I'm more likely to say "The days are growing longer" than "getting longer".

Hmmm. "The days are staying much longer" was rejected, yet both the literal and figurative meanings would be correct in English.

Staying longer = ficando por mais tempo
Getting longer = ficando mais longos
