“Hi, good morning. Are you awake?” the mom asked.

Swaddled in a blanket in her crib, the baby girl’s eyes were already open. She was wide awake and beaming from ear to ear. Maybe she was happy to see mama, or maybe she knew it was going to be a great day — either way, the tiny baby was ready to get going!

“Instant serotonin every morning,” the mom wrote in the caption

The adorable video racked up 6.7 million views on TikTok
