Could there be anything cuter than watching baby humans interact with baby animals? I highly doubt it.
Our neighbor’s “Where the Wild Things Are” first birthday party included a petting zoo, and my little girl was overflowing with excitement when she got to play with the baby farm animals.
While her brother was not entertained for long enough for Daddy to snap a picture of him (the playscape won out in the end), this little lady could’ve stayed in the enclosed pen petting baby goats, bunnies, pigs, and chicks for days if it were up to her.
I was blown away by how gentle and sweet she was with each baby animal. She would squat down on their level, talk softly to them, and somehow she even seemed to naturally know things like approaching animals with an open hand so as not to intimidate.
These are the moments in life that just make your heart swell.
