We all know social media is a mixed bag that has its pros and cons -- but the ability to watch David Johnson's baby boy grow up falls squarely in the "pro" category.
The Cardinals' star running back and his wife Meghan had their first child, a baby boy named David Jerome Johnson Jr., on Jan. 14. Since then, the Johnsons have experienced all the usual milestones and nerve-racking moments that first-time parents do, including leaving David Jr. with a sitter for the first time.
But thanks to the creation of Instagram, Cardinals fans have been able to watch David Jr. grow up. Here are some of the best photos and videos of David Jr. posted by David Sr. in the last six months, courtesy of David Sr. and Meghan's Instagram pages.
This is the proudest/most nervous moment I've ever had. Realizing that @meghantjohnson and I are responsible for raising our son, DJ. Meghan is such an amazing mother/wife and is helping me along the way though. I cant wait to be there in every moment of DJ's life. Getting him through the ups and downs, highs and lows, good and bad. #ProudFather
First Father's Day! Only 5 months and I already can't imagine my life with out my boy in it. He has brought on a whole new perspective of my purpose in life. EVERYDAY is a brand new adventure for @meghantjohnson and I. We definitely lucked out with him and his amazing personality. He's always laughing, smiling, and brightening up the day of anyone who sees him. (P.S. love the #fathersday gifts ??) #ProudDada
