Happy Birthday Baby Ari //

It’s hard to believe that this day has arrived — my first baby, Ari, is no longer a baby in any sense of the term.

Today he turns 5.

I’m so sad and so happy. He’s turning into such a wonderful little boy. But it’s certainly bittersweet to say goodbye to the baby years of Ari…

He’s always been a great kid; but watching him learn and grow over the last couple of years (especially) has been incredible.

He’s sensitive. He’s happy. He’s so very silly, but also so very caring. He’s a loving brother.

And he’s the world’s best snuggler.

It’s crazy to think we’ve officially outgrown the official age of ‘preschooler,’ even though he’ll remain in preschool for the remainder of this school year.

So, my sweet boy, I will spend the rest of today re-reading your birth story, looking at photos from the hospital, and basking in your overall grown-up-ness.

Happy birthday #BabyAri.


PS. For those of you that LOVE birth stories (like me!) you can catch Ari’s birth story here and here!


Thanks to Justine Johnson Photography for these amazing photos.

My oldest just turned 5 as well. I have no idea how he’s 5 already. 5! It just blows my mind how fast they’re growing up.
