The simplest things bring me the most pleasure..

Every time I see Connor in his new Picaflorkids Gabi Romper I just want to savor the moment. There is just something about a simple knitted piece that is just so beautiful and classic that leaves me a bit breathless. I am already convinced that my son is the most beautiful creature on the planet (yeh yeh I know I'm partial and all) but seeing him in that little romper with his beautiful little feet and his usually banged up legs, he is after all a boy, and those little curls that are growing because I refuse to cut his hair again... makes me want to just pause time and keep him with me just as he is right now.

I realize he has to grow up at some point, but I wish we could just have a bit more time. Its odd how just small little moments and simple little things like a romper can bring you the most pleasure.

PicaFlorkids offers more than just stunningly gorgeous rompers, they have a whole line of hand knitted clothing pieces that are amazingly affordable. If wish I could hand you one of his outfits through the computer so you could feel how wonderful the fabric feels. Its very light weight and all of the pieces are 100% rayon which gives them almost a silk like feel. I know what your thinking, don't worry they are machine washable and dry able but I would recommend that you use the gentle cycle on cold, and just an air dry. I'm not about to risk Connor's romper just to save a few minutes in drying. All of the items are hand knitted in peru, and whoever knitted Connor's romper deserve a big hug. One small detail I should mention, the creator and designer behind Picaflorkids is from Peru as well!

You really must check out the whole collection though. Are those little two piece suits not the cutest thing you have ever seen?

A percentage of all of the profits goes to help charities in Peru just for children.

I have a Gabi Romper in turquoise/green in 12m to give away to one lucky reader. Its absolutely stunning and would be great on a lucky little boy or girl!
