James Van Der Beek’s adorable baby son is putting the “daw” in Dawson these days. Little Joshua Van Der Beek’s golden curls and pouty lips steal the show in a new selfie he and Dad took while out and about earlier this week.

Taken on June 24, the photo shows James and a fedora-wearing Joshua enjoying a father and son outing. “Ok, bud,” writes James. “I need you to step in front of @juliusjr and give me your best 90's action movie poster pose…”

Julius, Jr., for those of us not up on modern day cartoon characters, is the name of the giant monkey chilling in the background of the selfie. Baby Van Der Beek scored himself an invite to the Julius, Jr. toy launch event at The London Hotel in West Hollywood and he was nice enough to bring Dad as his +1.

Born in March 2012, Josh just turned 2. He’s the second of the 37-year-old actor’s three children with Kimberly Brook. Daughter Olivia was born September 2010 and newest addition Annabel joined the party in January of this year. Hope the ladies of the house had their own fun outing planned as James and Joshua monkeyed around!
