TEEN Mom star Javi Marroquin spent some quality time with her youngest son decorating the Christmas tree at their Delaware home.
The reality TV star shared a silly photo of her son admiring the work of a special assistant who helped with the decor.
Javi posted a snapshot on her Instagram Stories of her three-year-old son, Eli, looking at their tree lit with white lights.
The toddler’s attention, however, was not on the lights but on the elf perched on one of the branches.
The elf held the end of the Christmas tree garland while the rest was wrapped around the spruce tree.
The father-of-two captured the view from behind the little one, adding the caption: “The tree needed some decoration anyway. Thanks elf!”
Last month, Javi shared snaps from the Thanksgiving vacation he spent with his two sons.
Javi shares Eli with ex Lauren Comeau, 29, and is also the father of son Lincoln, eight, along with ex Kailyn Lowry, 29.

The TV star appeared to be having a fun day with his athletic boys as he captured the brothers playing a shootout game on their indoor basketball court.
MTV’s dad clapped, “Take buckets!
The siblings took turns throwing the basketballs through the hoops.
Lincoln applauded, “I did it! As his ball bounced off one hoop and passed through the other hoop.
Their father replied, “Yes, but that doesn’t count.”
He asked himself in the caption: “Why did I buy this thing?”
In the following story, the brothers gave up basketball for a blue ball as they threw it at each other.
Both kept the ball in the air so it didn’t hit the ground.
He encouraged them: “Get up! Take it ! “
‘TOO MUCH PRESSURE’
Recently, the Teen Mom 2 star has been criticized by fans for “putting too much pressure” on Eli, especially on his birthday.
The star posted a series of photos of the little one on his special day.
He captioned the post, “Eli is three! You bring so much joy to life and I look forward to continuing to see you grow. Each year to come, we strive to be better than the last.
“The number of accomplishments at two was unreal so I can only imagine what three of you are going to do. You’re funny, sweet, athletic, wild, daredevil, loving and many more.”
He concluded with: “Today is your day, my king! I love you so much!”
Reddit users then criticized Javi’s word choice in her birthday post.
One said, “Why does he put so much pressure on a three-year-old to ‘strive to be better?’ He fucks 3 lol “
Another wrote: “What are his accomplishments?
A third mentioned: “I cringe every time he says my ‘king / prince’. I understand he is okay but ugh! “
It all comes after Lauren revealed she was on an “emotional roller coaster” ahead of her son’s birthday.
Lauren and Eli appeared to be participating in one of the rides at an amusement park.
“Fun Weekend” was meant to “kick off” Eli’s “birthday celebrations”.
She spoke of the “emotional roller coaster that is about to unfold over the next week and beyond”
Lauren concluded, “Next time I put him to bed, it’s going to be his last night together. Damn it! How does it happen so fast?”
