Mike Quinons, who is not even a year old, has already become a darling of the Internet and a model in a modeling agency where his mother, Amanda Booth, works. The baby, who was diagnosed with Down syndrome at 3 months, won the hearts of Internet users.

"Not like everyone else - does not mean the worst" - so Mikey's mom thinks and continues to share his photos. Now Mikey has 33.5 thousand fans who follow his profile on Instagram, and their number is only growing every day.
