A sense of humor is essential when it comes to parenting. TikToker and mom Alissa J. Owens (@alissaj.owens) had TikTok in stitches over this video, which compares her point of view to that of her newborn’s.
The funny clip begins with a shot of her adorable yet somewhat perplexed-looking infant snuggled in her lap from Owens’ point of view. The words “What I see vs. my newborn” are written on-screen.
The baby grows more quizzical looking, with his tiny hand perched underneath his chin as though he’s thinking hard about the situation that’s occurring.
“Hi!” Owens murmurs off-screen as the camera cuts to reveal a hilarious shot of her, presumably from her newborn’s point of view.
Owens takes advantage of the particularly unflattering camera angle. Her goofy smile, coupled with her exaggerated double chin, messy hair, and coos to her baby, make the infant’s expression all the more hilarious.
Viewers all over TikTok got a good laugh over the endearing video.
“And he thinks you’re the best view to look at ever,” one user assured.
“So he is trying to figure me out. Very cute,” posted another.
Other viewers were quick to notice the resemblance between Owens and her newborn.
“Y’all are so cute. He looks just like you,” said one user.
“The same nose! So cute!” another viewer gushed.
While a day in a newborn’s life seems like a monotonous cycle of eating, sleeping, crying, and diaper changes, getting a peek into their interior lives reminds us that there’s a lot of stimulation going on behind the scenes.
