Julia Davis (@julia_adavis) is a TikToker best known for running a website called The Little Business Library, which functions as an online archive of small businesses, listed by specialty, across the country. Recently, Davis posted a video montage from when she spent 3 months taking care of her best friend’s baby, Madeline, and it’s truly heartwarming.
The clip begins with footage of adorable baby Madeline dressed in a pink onesie with a matching bib. “3 months ago, I agreed to keep my bestie’s baby during the day,” Davis explains through on-screen captions.
“She needed someone to watch Madeline until she could start preschool,” Davis continues over a shot of Madeline smiling during tummy time.
Davis confesses over a shot of Madeline giggling in her highchair.
“But it flew by,” Davis notes during footage of her rocking Madeline to sleep.
“I blinked, and our time was up,” she states while a video of Madeline sitting in Davis’ lap and typing on the computer plays.
The love between the two is palpable, and viewers seem to agree.
“And this is how you choose which friends are godparent material. It’s so much more than a title,” one user said.
“This is proof that you don’t have to be in a romantic relationship to co-parent. I’m sure your friend appreciates your help more than you know,” another viewer mentioned.
Notions of what makes a family are more inclusive than ever, and Davis wonderfully illustrates that nurturing bond in this video.
