Teen Mom's resident watermelon farmer Gary Shirley is doing a great job raising 4-year-old Leah in his baby mama Amber Portwood's absence. As you're already aware, Amber is currently serving a 5-year jail sentence at Rockville Correctional Facility in Indiana after opting out of a court-ordered drug rehab program.

Despite having only visited Amber one time since she was sentenced last summer, Leah is doing great, all thanks to Gary's parenting. Just recently, Gary tried his hand at styling Leah's hair — which is already down to her bottom! — and he did a pretty good job, in our humble opinions.

"I put her hair up," Gary boasted on Twitter on May 30, along with a picture of Leah modeling the new updo.

In addition to doing Leah's hair, Gary dresses his little girl in all the latest trends. Remember that time he tweeted about her head-to-toe pink church outfit, complete with pink Jordans? So cute!

We're honestly beyond impressed with Gary's ability to be both a dad and mom to baby Leah while Amber's serving her time. "It's easy being a dad the hard part is being the dad and the mom," Gary told his Twitter fans on March 3.

We have a feeling Amber will be just as impressed when she gets out — which could be as early as this fall!

Do you think Gary's doing a good job with Leah? Tell us below.
