You won’t find a closer attachment than what a baby has with their mom, and a baby’s favorite thing has to be the familiarity of their mom’s scent, voice, and general appearance. Our moms are the ones who soothed us when we cried, fed us when we were hungry and rocked us to sleep, so it makes perfect sense for babies to be joined at their mama’s hip.
Mom’s New Hair
With that being said, babies like things to be pretty consistent- so if mom gets a new hairstyle, their reaction is always worth watching. So when one mom transformed her hair from brown to pink, she just knew that her son’s reaction was going to be worth catching on camera. And the little guy certainly doesn’t disappoint!
The sweet video was posted onto YouTube by dad Collin Martin, and has received over 2.2 million views since being shared in 2014.
Titled, “Baby’s Adorable Reaction to Mom’s New Hair,” the cute moment begins as mom Kristan steps out of the car. Her hair is a brilliant pastel pink color, and Collin films from the doorway where himself and and baby August are waiting.
Mom asks baby’s opinion
“First impressions of Kristan’s new hair…”
Collin narrates, as August’s mom makes her way up the driveway. The camera is then turned to August himself, and after only a couple of seconds of appearing confused, the sweet little guy’s face breaks into a huge smile. Phew!
“Do you like it?” Kristan asks. “Does mamma look pretty?”
There was a pause. Then finally a response.
August does the most adorable giggle, before holding out his arms for a cuddle. We’ll take that as a yes!
As soon as he’s up in his mama’s arms, August simply can’t stop staring at his mom’s new hair ‘do. Despite looking a little confused, all in all we’d say it’s not a bad reaction (we’ve all seen the video of the baby who loses it when her dad shaves his beard off). It seems that August’s mom also wasn’t expecting such a positive reaction!
Mom expected a different response
“I thought he would cry,” Kristen says, looking in bewilderment at August as he smiles back at her. We are then shown another clip, and it’s pretty clear that August is still obsessed with his mama’s new hair. The sweet little guy simply can’t stop staring at his mom, and every so often he lets out the cutest little giggle.
People took to the comments to share their love for the video, with one person saying, “Mom changes her hair colour and/or put on make so that looks completely different person – Child : *gasp and amused! Still Mommy.* Dad shaves his beard – Child: *cries! I don’t know this stranger*”
Another added, “Baby is like “Mommy was pretty before, now she’s a Disney Princess!!” while a final person said, “Oh my goodness! He was blushing from how petty his mommy looked. His reaction is so adorable!”
He certainly was! Has your baby ever reacted to a change in your appearance? Make sure you watch the hilarious video below, and let us know in the comments!
