We’re still recovering from the picture perfect play date on T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle that made us crave Chef Tip’s homemade peanut butter sandwiches and at least one round in the bounce house, but today is a special day all its own: Major turns five! Youngest member of the Harris family, but “baby” no more, we’re wishing Tip and Tameka’s little man all the best, and are confident he’ll be celebrating in style. Did you see his fourth birthday party?
The proud parents have already had a hard time keeping their feelings to themselves today. “5 yrs ago May 16 I was Blessed with Major Philant Harris! He is such mommy’s baby! He’s the smartest little 5yr old I no [sic]! We gone turn up for MajorBaby today & tomorrow! My Major Luvbug.. Happy Birthday,” Tameka posted on Instagram, along with a selection of the cutest mother-son moments. (Face paint!)
We remember how he celebrated turning four, but now with his big boy bed and perfected social skills, the sky’s the limit for the big 5. In honor of his special day, here are five of our favorite Major moments–further proof that age ain’t nothing but a number…
Owning up to drawing on Tip’s sacred white sofa in the sacred White Room (well sort of) AND willing to accept his punishment? Our parents wish we were as forthright with information.
Skiing isn’t easy, and figuring out how to balance your body weight on the slippery white stuff next to your athletically gifted father isn’t any better. Still, Little Man would not give up until he conquered his own portion of Big Bear Mountain.
HE’S OPEN TO CHANGE
In addition to being ready to abandon his regal crib, Major was willing to clean up after himself and do whatever manual labor needed to become a man. Also, let it be known that he’s a budding fashion icon (with racks on racks on racks of clothes).
HE KNOWS WHEN TO FIGHT
And what’s worth fighting for (video games, natch).
HE’S READY TO TRY NEW THINGS
Facing your fears is a part of growing up, and Major does it ALL on camera, occasionally providing his own soundtrack.
Happy Birthday, Major!
