In most cases, a baby spends nine long months forming an extra-special bond with their mom while still in the womb.
This can make Dad’s job a bit more difficult when trying to connect with them after they’ve finally made their way into the world.
However, there is no doubt that the love between the father and his sleeping baby in the video below is completely mutual!
After his little baby totally passes out at nap time, this dad turns his camera on to capture the absolutely heart-melting reaction his son has when he hears his pop say those three little words: “I love you.”
Even though the clip is short, I guarantee that the priceless expression on the child’s face will definitely bring a smile to your face that lasts all day long.
It turns out that the bond between parents and their children doesn’t have to rely on surprisingly stellar pipes belting out a tune or unexpectedly spot-on impressions of their favorite cartoon characters.
Of course, those are a lot of fun to watch, but there’s something extra charming about how simple this act of affection is between the father and his little boy.
I bet it will remind tons of parents and grandparents of all those little moments that make every other stressful situation that comes with having kids worth every second.
