My Little Zoolander!!

Before I had kids, I always thought it would be fun to submit them for modeling gigs, you know, if they didn't come out looking like ET. (Although I'm sure there is some market for that too!) I figured we could exploit them while they were young, before the industry pressure for sex and drugs would affect them. So like up to 5 years old or so. In 15 years, I really don't want to see my children on the "Child Stars...Screwed Up Lives" show.

So when Austin came out looking all ridiculously cute, (I'm his momma...I'm allowed to be slightly biased) I thought he'd have a chance at getting some modeling gigs. And sure enough, I was right!

A few months ago Austin landed his first gig...a print shoot for Disney Clothing! He did so good! He's such a laid back kid and he's so darn smiley! The ad was for Disney's winter line, so I've been waiting on pins and needles (read...stalking the Disney store website like a crazy person) for the pictures to come out. They photographed several kids in the same outfits so there was a chance he wouldn't be in it. But I just received an email from his agent and they used him!

Seriously, how cute is my kid???

(ETA: Ooh he's on the main page of too! Coverpage Baby!)

A few weeks ago he did two shoots - One for Carter's Clothing and another for Infantino Baby Carriers. When those pictures come out, I'll post them here too.

Now to go work on his "Blue Steel" look. It needs some tweaking.

I don't know if you remember, but the first time I saw Zoolander was at the old UCLA apartment with you. Every time I see the baby's Blue Steel look at the end, it always makes me think of you . . . we laughed and laughed and laughed. LOL! He (Austin) is one ridiculously cute kid! :)
