Toddler Discovers His Shadow For The First Time, Freaks Out (VIDEO)

This must have been how Peter Pan felt when he first met his shadow. A new friend! Who needs toys? Here's a perfect source of constant toddler entertainment.

Watch as the little boy in this video discovers first that he has a shadow, then dances in a circle around it, waves a whole lot and (finally!) tackles that shady thing to the ground.

His enthusiasm is not unlike baby Lennon's, the kid who was overcome with joy after seeing bubbles for the first time.

Don't you miss the days of simple pleasures?


And, in other cute-toddler news, don't miss Bode, a little boy who was so sleepy on the slopes he fell asleep standing on his skis -- boots, helmet, and all.
