Any cute things you’ve ever seen in life IN GENERAL now no longer qualify, because THIS is the ultimate epitome.
My 15-month old niece Bree and I commandeered the rocking chair and watched Pocoyo on my laptop - she digs the show, and I dig the music and all-around cleverness of the design.

Or the fetus cookies.
Or “Happy Falker Satherhood”
