This darling baby boy with bright blue eyes and the cutest dimples we've ever seen, is Andrea! Andrea was christened this Fall wearing the Jonathan Jumpsuit; an elegant, white cotton jumpsuit detailed with white silk dupioni and white silk buttons. He looked so beautiful in his christening jumpsuit, along with the perfectly matching Jonathan Booties and Hat to match! Andrea and his family live in central Italy, so their day incorporated Italian traditions. His grandmother, Maria Grazia, was kind to share the details from Andrea's christening day, along with gorgeous photos from their celebration! We hope you enjoy Andrea's Christening Story!
