When I was down beside the sea,
a wooden spade they gave to me
to dig the sandy shore.
My holes were empty like a cup
in every hole the sea came up
til it could come no more.
-Robert Louis Stevenson
Madeleine and I sneaked away for a couple of hours this morning to enjoy some “Mommy and Me” time at the beach. I couldn’t help but think of this poem watching her play. She would run back and forth between me and the waves, collecting seashells to fill her shoes, her little pigtails bouncing the whole time. We really enjoyed our morning together.
Her little romper is from an adorable pattern I found recently. I have been on the lookout for a cute romper and was excited to finally find the perfect pattern from Tadah! Patterns. They have quite a few cute and easy patterns available. This romper is their Seaside Playsuit pattern.
I just love that ruffled collar!

Bridgette, I remember the days of rompers! You wore a few yourself but none as cute as this one. I love the ruffle, too! How Madeleine must have loved that special time together!! Happy, peaceful, memories!!! – Mombo
