It Doesn't Get Much Cuter Than This Adorable Baby Discovering His Hands

Eleven-month-old Asher is the first baby in his family, so his parents have captured "pretty much every waking moment" of his life so far on their iPhones, they told The Huffington Post.

After breakfast one morning, Asher's mom Yasmin caught this squee-worthy gem of a milestone -- the moment the baby discovered he has hands and the pure glee that followed.

"It was pretty awesome to be able to watch the gears in his brain working as he discovered the cause and effect of opening and closing his hands and clapping," dad Harley Block said. "Wouldn't it be awesome if the little things (like the mere fact that we have hands that we are able to open and close) gave us adults this much joy too?"

"We feel thankful to have this chubby little guy who makes us appreciate the small stuff every day, just by looking at the world through his eyes."

It really is the small stuff.
