If you’re feeling a little down lately, you’re not alone.
It’s not just that stress, anxiety, and depression tend to peak during the holiday season. It’s also that as a nation — and a world — we’re experiencing one of the most emotionally tumultuous years we’ve had in a long time.
Which is why this video of a newborn getting her hair washed at the hospital is exactly what the doctor ordered.
Posted to Tay Tay Gkg’s Facebook page, the video, which has garnered 12 million views, 125 thousand shares, and 37 thousand comments so far, is a breath of fresh air.
In the video, the beautiful baby girl, who, according to the Facebook post, is Tay Tay Gkg’s daughter, is clearly enjoying her first bath at the hands of a very skilled nurse. From the lathering of the soap to the brushing of the hair, this little one’s facial expressions and calm demeanor prove she is in post-birth heaven.
And the baby girl’s parents aren’t the only ones who thought the moment was adorable.
Comments on the post range from, “OMG, she looks so peaceful!” to “Doesn’t this make you want to have another baby?” And while I don’t know about having another baby (Let’s all calm down and not get carried away, OK? I mean, we all remember what having a newborn at home is really like, right?), one thing’s for sure: Baby girl’s tranquility is something we could all use right about now.
Check out the video below, and let yourself enjoy some happiness in a world full of discord.
Here’s to hoping we can finish out the year in as pleasant and temperate a manner as this moment. Lord knows we deserve that much.
