Bombs in Syria, terror in Stockholm, chaos and a bad confirmation in the Senate. I’ve had better Friday mornings, Kveller readers, and I’m sure you have too.

So, as I sit here comforting myself with a big cup of coffee and the new Harry Styles ballad on repeat (I’m an older millennial, what can I say?), I offer you the viral baby video that made me smile today when nothing else could.

Yes, one family videotaped their baby being unswaddled every morning, and throwing up his little arms with delight. And they set it to very appropriate music, from Naughty By Nature to Miley Cyrus. Yes, there’s a Mel Gibson moment (boo!) in there too, but the cuteness outweighs that.

It’s garnered over a million views in a week—watch and you’ll see why. Thanks, Kaden’s parents, for sharing your baby joy wth the interwebs.
