Thomas Rhett loves showing off his little girls via Instagram. Recently the country singer posted a video of his eldest daughter learning a new skill...

Country music star Thomas Rhett went from having no children at the start of 2017 to being a father of two under age two by the year’s close. Since then, the “Life Changes” singer has become a pro dad along with the help of his wife, Lauren Akins. He speaks of his two little girls in his music and even brags about them from time to time via Instagram!

A recent post on his Instagram account features Lauren and two-year-old daughter Willa Gray, whom TR declares a genius after she writes a ‘W’ on her notebook.

Willa Gray is 2 and just wrote a “W” on her own.. is that normal?😂🤩

A post shared by ThomasRhettAkins (@thomasrhettakins) on

“Willa Gray is 2 and just wrote a ‘W’ on her own.. is that normal?,” Thomas Rhett captioned the adorable little clip.

Thomas Rhett then encourages his little one to fully embrace her identity of the new family genius (at least until little sister Ada James can give her a run for her money) by prompting her to say, “I’m a genius” as she continues doodling.

Lauren first met Willa Gray while in Uganda with the organization 147 Million Orphans. After falling in love with the little girl, the couple decided to adopt her and welcomed her home in May of 2017.

“It is definitely the hardest thing we’ve ever been through,” Lauren revealed to PEOPLE about the adoption. “But I think it needs to be hard because you have to fight for that baby just like you do. I’ve done both now — I’ve had one biological and I’ve had one through adoption. It’s a battle to bring your child home. And it just strengthens you as parents and as a team. It is hard but it’s so worth it.”

While applying to college is many years away— we’re sure Willa Gray will keep on impressing us with her achievements. She can decorate cupcakes too!

Thomas Rhett’s last year has been pretty awesome and his song “Life Changes” covers everything perfectly— including adding Willa to the family!

“Life Changes” Lyrics 

Waking up in my college dorm
Yeah, my life, it was pretty normal
Looking for a date to the spring formal
Wasn’t worried ’bout nothing else, no
Majoring in undecided
Notebook full of bad songs I was writing
Never dreamed anyone else would like’em
Now they’re sitting on a Walmart shelf
Ain’t it funny how life changes
You wake up, ain’t nothing the same and life changes
You can’t stop it, just hop on the train and
You never know what’s gonna happen
You make your plans and you hear god laughing
Life changes, and I wouldn’t change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn’t change it for the world, the world, oh no
I bought a ring and she said “I do”
But everybody else said, “man, you’re twenty-two
“Whatcha trying to prove?”
“Hey why don’t you wait?”
‘Cause I’ve been waiting on her since the second grade yeah
And now she got her own set of fans
She got a blue check mark by her Instagram
And I wrote a little song about holding her hand and now everybody wanna die happy now
Ain’t it funny how life changes
You wake up ain’t nothing the same and life changes
You can’t stop it just hop on the train
You never know what’s gonna happen
You make your plans and you god laughing
Life changes (yes it does) and I wouldn’t change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn’t change it for the world, the world, oh no
I remember the day I told my Daddy and Mama you’re gonna have a grandkid, yep
From Uganda, that’s right, we’re adopting
And she is the cutest little girl that you’ve ever seen
Well I was wrapping my head around being a dad
A bigger wrench got thrown in the plans we thought we’d had
Now Lauren’s showin’ and got one on the way
Yeah that’s two into two, hey, what can I say?
Ain’t it funny how life changes
You wake up ain’t nothing the same and life changes
You can’t stop it just hop on the train and
You never know what’s gonna happen
You make your plans and you god laughing
Life changes (yes it does) and I wouldn’t change it for the world, the world, oh no
And I wouldn’t change it for the world, the world, oh no
The world, the world
The world, the world
