8 Aww-dorable Baby Photos We’d Look At Year Round

This year brought us lots of heart-melting Kodak moments. Here are some of our favorites.

Little babies, big dreams

These tiny babies might be confined to the NICU now, but they’ve got big plans for the future.  That was the thought behind these creative illustrated photos of sleeping preemies at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. “I like to think that I’ve cared for the next President of the United States, the scientist who’s going to help cure cancer, a Top Chef, an astronaut, an Olympic gold medalist and dozens of teachers, firemen and fellow nurses,” says Jessica Wright, a NICU Clinical Nurse Educator. “I always think big because, as evidenced by the size of the fight in their tiny bodies, these little ones have big things in store for the world.”

The coolest baby on the block

If coolness is something you’re born with, then this baby is way ahead of the game. One lucky couple got an unexpected surprise when baby gave them a thumbs up from the womb in this ultrasound that became an instant Internet hit.  Clearly, Baby A (it’s twins in there!) is ready to take on the world. Let’s hope Baby B is just as enthusiastic.

A mini masterpiece

Nope, it’s not Halloween. It’s just an average day in the life of baby Leonardo, whose artistic pictures are deserving of a spot in a museum. Using household objects like rugs, scarves, toys, and even vegetables, his mom (a London-based photographer) creates quirky backgrounds and then inserts her son into the moment to make baby photo magic. How cute is this Mexican-themed masterpiece?

Baby George takes New Zealand!

Will and Kate were meant to be the main event on their tour Down Under, but it was baby George (and those cherubic cheeks) who ended up stealing the show. Whether he was meeting his namesake bilby at the zoo, having a playdate with civilians, or posing in mom’s arms on the tarmac, George worked the camera (and his amazing array of outfits!) like the royal baby he is.

Best friends forever

Want to crank up the cuteness factor in a baby photo? Add a dog. Then dress that dog and baby in matching hats and headgear, like one Tokyo-based lifestyle photographer did with her 10-month old son Jasper and their sweet rescue pup Zoey. These BFFs are adorable proof that life is better with a best buddy by your side.

A year's worth of memories

Baby’s first year goes by fast, but one Australian-based mom found a fun way to capture the memories by staging the sweetest photos of her daughter Maya every week for 52 weeks. So far Maya’s posed with lots of cute props like a skateboard, a surfboard, in a tub of bubbles, and inside a picture frame…and with 8 more weeks to go until her first birthday we can’t wait to see what other creative ideas Maya and her mom have in store.

Halloween for the win!

What do you do when you love Halloween and you can’t decide what baby’s first costume should be? Make him 31 costumes, of course! Noah’s Halloween Countdown was an instant hit on mom Jessica’s Instagram and Tumblr accounts. From a scuba diver and a Minion to the Monopoly Man and Tarzan, it was almost impossible to pick a favorite from the bunch, but we couldn’t get enough of this delicious interpretation of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Baby on the big screen

Thanks to her Photoshop-happy dad, 15-month-old baby Winter (whose mom Brittany just happens to work for The Bump!) got to share screentime with Harry Potter, King Kong, Yoda, and Iron Man to namedrop a few. After posting the images on Reddit they quickly went viral. One look at Winter’s cute action-packed pose and it’s obvious this baby is ready for her close-up!
