A day with Tata Cricri

For those of you who don't know, my middle name is Christiane [pronounced "Christy-anne"], and I'm named after... Auntie Christiane.  I call her Tata Cricri.

Tata Cricri came over yesterday and took us out to lunch [there's my Daddy holding me].

Then, she took me and Mommy shopping.  Mommy let her drive.

I like sitting up in my stroller,...

...especially when Tata Cricri is there to give me a bisous [that means kiss].

She held an empty cup while I chewed it.

After Mommy and I said au revoir, I got to open a present from my Tata.

I'm really good at using my feet, too.

Here's a picture of Mommy holding up my new toy and me playing with the wrapping paper.

Mommy got really pretty flowers from her for French Mother's Day.

And here I am wearing a shirt and playing with a toy from Tata Cricri... she's so cool.
Thank you so much !!!
I love you Tata.

Love Daphné


Some friends we hadn't seen in a while invited us over for a bbq.

Family trio.

Tonio and Igor at the barbecue pit.

Me and my little lady.

They live on the top floor.  It's so great that they have a yard.

Our flower.

She loves her Daddy.

Hanging out with Jasmina.

Watching their 2 1/2 year-old playing.

Dressing up

You guessed it... more clothes.

The cutest little flower jumper you ever did see.

Had a little pee pee accident, so...

...this became the outfit for Tuesday.

Daphné and Sophie are often pictured together; they're buds.

See what I mean?  Rainbow dress for today's (Wednesday's) outfit.

It even has little rainbow pantaloons to accompany the ensemble.

Caught with a bow and a bottle.

I cannot express enough how thankful to the LORD we are for this precious little person.

Chatter box

Daphné enjoying her water bottle.

Each day that I am awakened by her coos or cries, I thank the LORD for what an incredible blessing she is to us.  I can't imagine life without this bundle of joy... and that's exactly what she is... a bundle of J.O.Y.  We love you Daphné Christiane !
