Dad Photoshops His Premature Baby Into Hilariously 'Advanced' Situations

It's an unfortunate reality of life that 15 million babies are born prematurely every year, the World Health Organisation reports. And while improvements in medical science have dramatically improved their odds of survival, being born early is not without its risks, both physically and mentally, and for babies born below 22 weeks, their chances of survival are almost nonexistent.

One of these 15 million babies was the son of Matt MacMillan. His baby boy Ryan arrived into the world nine weeks before his due date, and as a result, he weighed less than three pounds. To give Ryan the best possible chance, he had to spend the first six weeks of his life in intensive care. But instead of letting the situation get them down, his parents turned it into a positive.

Rather than refer to their son as premature, Alyssa and Matt described him as "advanced" and that's when a brilliant idea was born: Ryan decided to photoshop their premature six-month-old into a variety of very grown-up situations to show just how quickly he'd grown beyond his weeks of life, and the results are hilarious, to say the least.

Giving Tony Hawk a run for his money already.

2. Perfecting the art of shaving before he's even got hair on his head

Because the world couldn't handle a baby with a 5 o'clock shadow.

3. So close and yet so far...

Urm, Ryan, no offense, but there are some jobs you should leave to your dad - no matter how advanced you are!

4. Not going to lie, this looks like a lot of fun

Although it's probably not a good idea if Ryan wants to avoid a second stay in ICU.

5. Pokerface

Let's just hope that the Cookie Monster doesn't have a full house.

6. Who said premature babies aren't strong?!

What an adorable little face!

7. Now that's what I call a look of concentration

The lumberjack flannel makes this picture, in my opinion.

8. Catching dinner for the fam

You know someone's good at photoshop when they even include shadows in the water. Can you see Ryan's little shoes?!

9. Making himself useful already

When you're an "advanced" baby, your small statue is only a minor problem.

10. Off to work

There are no words for how cute that briefcase is.

11. When you've got a big appetite you're guaranteed to grow into a big boy

We've all looked at food this longingly before.

12. Ryan really is a gym bunny

Or should I say gym baby!

Matt told Bored Panda that he wanted this photo series to show people that despite having a trickier start in life than most, premature babies are just as capable as those who are not and far from being "weak" in the way they're sometimes portrayed.
