{Small Style Thursday }

An awesome part of being a mom is dressing our babies and little children. Right now I love dressing Samuel! The button above shows a dress, but Samuel is definitely all boy! Anyway,  the blog, Mama Loves Papa started this link-up to show what their children are wearing. I think it is a pretty fun idea, and this is my first time joining in!

My mom bought this really cute vintage inspired baby western shirt, and Wrangler overalls from
a little Western store in Uvalde Texas. I think it looks adorable on him. He is playing with the stick horse
one of my dear friends bought for him from the same store!
