Your Adorable Quotient For Today

This was one of those moments on our vacation where time stopped for a second.  In the gorilla enclosure at the Animal Kingdom, there is a baby gorilla,  just a few months old at this point and utterly adorable.

He kept wanting to hold his momma's hand.  Somehow, I managed to capture the moment when he finally caught hold and gazed up at her.

I wish I had video of him rolling and frolicking and showing off for her beforehand, because it was priceless. 

The Peanut and I were mesmerized.  Mr. ReddHedd unfortunately missed this, because he was sitting down to rest his tired feet and sipping on a cold beverage at the time.  Bummer for him, because it was completely and totally awesome.

Sometimes, the tiniest things loom large.  In this case, it was a little tenderness from a baby gorilla and his momma.  Would not have missed this for the world.
