Sure, 2016 has been challenging for many reasons, but if you’re a fan of chubby cheeks and tiny onesies, the year hasn’t been a complete wash in at least one area: Instagram babies.

As famous families continued to grow, snap-happy moms and dads have been gifting us with squeal-inducing looks at their photogenic offspring. These newborn all-stars in particularly had us wearing out the like button and letting out “awww”:

Luna Simone Stephens

Born on April 14, the daughter of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen is definitely following in her model mom’s camera-charming footsteps. Since making her social media debut a mere five days after arriving, Luna has starred in precious videos, posed with pets, and basically won Halloween.

Leonardo Ángel Charles Baldwin

Leonardo joined siblings Carmen, 3, Rafael, 1, half-sister Ireland, 21, and parents Alec and Hilaria on Sept. 12. In his short first months on Earth, he’s become a staple on his mom’s always-adorable account. Like all successful Instagram models, the newest Baldwin has already mastered a number of signature looks, including “asleep,” “ecstatic,” and the truly tear-jerking “sans boob.”

Dream Kardashian

The youngest Insta star of them all made her grand entrance on Nov. 10 — after parents Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna completed a delivery room Mannequin Challenge, of course. Already proving to be a true Kardashian, Dream is the proud owner of her very own Instagram account.

Daisy Josephine Sudeikis

On Oct. 11, Daisy joined big bro Otis, 2, and parents Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. The little one has packed in the cuteness in a number of her mother’s Instagram photos, and seems to keep busy with helping her mom work, cuddle and eat.

Tiny office mate.

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and wife Nicole Johnson welcomed Boomer on May 5. The baby became a sensation as he watched his dad compete in the Rio Summer Games. By the looks of it, Phelps might one day be the one cheering on Boomer from the stands.

Boomer says what's up y'all!!! @nicole.m.johnson

Kelly Clarkson and husband Brandon Blackstock welcomed Remington on April 12. He’s taking after big sister River Rose, 2, in providing plenty of cute photo opps.

Asahd Tuck Khaled


A post shared by DJ KHALED (@djkhaled) on Dec 6, 2016 at 7:29pm PST

Of all the Insta babies of 2016, Asahd might be the most likely to eventually take over the Internet, seeing as how his very birth was documented on Snapchat. Fans followed along as dad DJ Khaled anxiously snapped by fiancée Nicole Tuck’s bedside for hours before finally meeting Asahd early on Oct. 23. The young icon’s Instagram and Snapchat presence hasn’t slowed down since his birth.

I love you so much ! So much! ASAHD KHALED 🦁

Saint West

👼🏽 on my snap chat

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Jun 23, 2016 at 10:06pm PDT

Although he was born on Dec. 5, 2015, Saint’s first glorious photos weren’t revealed until 2016. Like 3-year-old sister North West, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West’s youngest has quickly ascended to Instagram VIP status.

We’re definitely looking forward to more lovable posts from these little cuties in 2017, and we can’t wait to meet next year’s crew of pint-sized social media stars (a little Cooper or Wilson, perhaps?).
