They learned to walk and laugh, feel raindrops falling on their heads and even confront their deep, dark fear of the car wash – and every one of those moments was captured on video. Thanks, mom and dad! Look back at the class of 2014 YouTube stars who are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Katy Perry’s Biggest Fan

This contender was really a dark horse , but that “THIS IS MY JAM” secured baby a piece of YouTube fame.

Baby’s First Steps Time-Lapse Video

We’re not sure who’s more resilient: new walker Lucy after multiple face-plants and sibling-inflicted pushes, or her dad Nick Turner for capturing every moment on camera.

Remote Hog in the Making

Nope, that’s not a high-tech vibrating baby bouncer; this little guy is just spazzing out over the remote control. With that level of commitment to TV, we can only assume he’s hooked on Scandal too.

Forever Young

Is this hilarious or heart-wrenching? Five-year-old Sadie just realized her baby brother won’t stay this cute and cuddly forever. We can’t stop watching her existential crisis.

Beagle Begs Baby's Forgiveness

Charlie the beagle has a lot of groveling to do to get back on baby Laura’s good side. After stealing a toy and making her cry, he buries her with apology presents for a solid minute and a half. Atta girl, you have him right where you want him.

Raindrops Keep Falling on Her Head

Forget the umbrellas — this baby is embracing every raindrop. If she has this reaction to stormy weather, what will happen the first time she sees snow?

Workout Buddies

The best training partner is one who’s not afraid to push you. And baby Lilly takes the reigns while doing Supermans with dad.

No Candy from a Stranger

Mom is having some trouble imparting the classic “don’t-take-candy-from-strangers” lesson to Ye Bin. We think the toddler gets it by the end, but her affinity for cookies and ice cream seems pretty strong.

Baby's Infectious First Laugh

This dad is beyond elated to hear baby belly laugh for the first time. And it was all set off by a game of fake head-butting. Yep, these two are going to get along just fine.

Car Wash Terror

Most kids love sitting through the car wash, but for this toddler, it was a pretty traumatic experience. She spent most of it hiding beneath her monkey blanket, but mom and dad made sure to record all her terrified faces and shrieks and share it with the world.

Bouncy House Tutorial

Okay, just one more dog and baby video. When this baby couldn’t quite master the crawling technique, Buddy helpfully stepped in to give her a four-legged demo.

A Father's NICU Serenade

We had to throw a tearjerker into the mix. While new dad Chris Picco ultimately lost his wife and son soon after delivery, the beautiful moment of him singing the Beatles’ “Blackbird” to his dying son Lennon at the hospital will live on in all of our hearts.
