Arianna Lexus Ricketts The more she grows, the more she amazes us!
At 1:21pm on May 16th, 2009 we were blessed with the most beautiful little girl. We named her Arianna. Due to her being 12 weeks early, she only weighed in at 3 pounds 7 ounces and measured 16 inches long. She was so small. She was a fighter though and we had never been more proud.
On June 3rd we got a call saying she most likely wouldn’t make it through the night. One of the scariest things you could ever hear, but for someone so small she hadmore strength than ever and she pulled through. She stayed in the NICU for about a month and a half before she was finally able to go home June 29th.
Catching up is size wasn’t very hard for Ari. She amazed us everyday. Not only did we teach her but she taught us.
But now a whole new year ishere again. She is turning 3!
Shes a little bit of sunshine, Shes a smile to light our days, She will steal your heart andkeep it with her warm endearing ways, Shes our precious little daughter, With a sweetness from above Who will fill our years with laughter and our lives with lots of love We Love You Arianna! You will always be our baby girl
