Little Israel Dillard’s future is so bright, he’s gotta wear shades.

Jill (Duggar) Dillard and husband Derick have only been home with their newborn son for a couple of days, but their little boy has already perfected his pose for the cameras.

The couple’s first child – who was born April 6 – is shown posing with sunglasses in a photo album the proud parents shared on their website.

“So thankful to God for this handsome little guy,” the 19 Kids and Counting star, 23, wrote on Instagram shortly after her baby was born.

“We are so blessed to have such a great family and such great support her at the hospital with the doctors and the nursing staff,” Jill told PEOPLE before they came home. “My sisters and my mom and Derick’s mom have all been in to help!”
