Ari update...

My sweet little Ari is 4 today! I was induced 9 days late with Ari. It was a long 15.5 hour labor and we had many friends and family at the hospital to witness his birth. Labor stalled around 7:30 pm, so I began getting Pitocin, which kicked things up a notch. Ari was born around 11:30 pm and weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces.

Ari has the biggest, brightest smile of anyone I know. His smile lights up his entire face. He is a very handsome little boy and looks a lot like my dad and his family.

Ari is a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of kid. He will play what everyone else is playing and doesn't have a strong opinion. He is so laid back that we sometimes have to give him a little extra push.

His favorite food is chicken legs. He doesn't have a favorite TV show, and he isn't really into anything special. He LOVES his bears (blue bear and grandma bear), his bunny, and especially his blankies!!! He sucks on his tongue when he gets tired...he has done that since he was a little baby. Ari is a thin boy weighing only 35 pounds. He is a very special boy!

We love you so much Ari! You are a wonderful, precious gift! Keep smiling!
