Adoration of the Mamas

USA Today

I know nothing at all about this video except that USA Today has featured it, with no story. But it doesn’t really need a story, does it? That ridiculously cute baby is gazing at his mother with delighted adoration and abandon — there is a point where he coos what sounds like a contented “Awww” at what he beholds.

It’s priceless. And as much as we know about love, and parenthood, it shows us all we do not know, too.

As does this: a newborn will not let go of the Mama
