A bit busy

Hey guys,

I've got my hands full... full of sweet little people.  So, please consider the blog on vacation for right now.  Who knows when I'll be able to get back to it, but don't worry, I'll come back! =) 

Until then, please know I update Instagram and Facebook regularly.  Enjoy!

Top 15 favorites (to date)

Instead of trying to post EVERY. SINGLE. PICTURE that I've taken since we've been home for a couple of weeks, I've decided to pick my top favorites, and it ended up being 15.  Enjoy!

My little Koala.  Since I spend a lot of time feeding our Django, Daphné joins me on the chair, and we have fun with Instagram filters like this one.  Her eyes are so stinkin' beautiful!

I call this one "bunny ears" - do you see why?!  Hehe!

Our first little walk as a family of four.

What did we get ourselves into?!!!

Welcome to the madness. 

Sweet time with Mamie and Papi at the park.  Django's first park outing.

Our little man is so handsome.

My husband is amazing.

First trip to church as a family of four.  Awkward funny faces on our children.

Business man.

"Not sure I signed up for this." -Daphné

It is well with my soul.

tiny. HUGE.

Playing in Daphné's room together.

Bath man!

Maternity & Going Home

I have a bazillion photos of this cute little guy, but time to sit in front of the computer is limited.  Here are a few photos from Django's 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th day of life.  He's so amazing!  We are so thankful to the Lord for this precious gift.  Now, we have 2 treasures from God!

I prayed the word peace over Django during the whole pregnancy.  God answered.

The weigh station.  Slowly gaining back his birth weight.

Big sis enjoying some fun at Mamie and Papi's.


We gave Daphné a gift from Django the first time she came to visit.  I think she likes it... a little set of dishes.

The hospital.

View from my room.

Daphné likes Django's tiny fingers.

Family of Four!

Holding tiny brother.

Her face says it all.

Another day at Mamie and Papi's... similar outfit... it was hot!


Rob and Daphné coming to visit.

Holding bro again. 

She's so proud and excited!

Django's amazing papa =).

Beautiful Tata Cricri.

Dapper Tonton Robi.

My guys!

Going home.

Buckle up.

Home sweet home.

Doctor Daphné.  Her Tata Cricri and Tonton Robi bought her a little doctor kit for the arrival of her baby brother.  She's workin' the phones.

A Django is born!

He's here!!!

Django Timothy Petrignani
21 August, 2017
3.5 kg (7.8 lbs.)
50 cm (19.7")

His name means "I awake" to "honor God" - we pray he grows into a man that honors God with his whole heart and his life.  We are in love.  (Lots of hearts emojis and smiley faces with heart eyes...hehe)

Just after the birth.  He was all slimy, but so cute!!!

The birthplace.

View from the birthing room.

View from my room in the maternity ward.

Not a bad day to start life... just look at that Mediterranean sunrise!

Our little man.

Smiles from the beginning.

Proud Papa - this guy coached me through a pretty intense birth.  He's my hero!

Meanwhile, with Mamie and Papi, our little doll is not having any fun.

And she proceeded to tell Mamie that Mama lets her stand on top of her dresser...hmmm... little stinker!

A bit smeared, but this was on Django's little bed.

My sweet boy.

Absolute perfection.

Love buggles.

Smile selfie.

Our first dinner together.

And he was born right after the lunar eclipse.

Pretty cool!
Maybe that's what started my contractions =)

Django - we got the name from the famous gypsy jazz musician Django Reinhardt.
Timothy - we got from my dad's name - keeping it in the family.

We thank God for this second treasure from Heaven!
