If you need a button pushed, Alec Baldwin‘s little girl Carmen has it covered!

The comedic actor and his wife Hilaria attended the annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller Center on Wednesday night with their 3-year-old daughter along for a very special honor: pressing the button that kicks off the Christmas season in New York City.

“Best button presser ever,” Hilaria, 32, captioned a festive Instagram video of Carmen doing the big honor of lighting the 94-foot iconic Norway Spruce during the cold and rainy ceremony while dad Alec, 58, holds her proudly.

Once Carmen was out like a light for the night, her mom took to Instagram once more to share a sweet message to her daughter.

“In case you were wondering: button pressing is very exhausting,” Hilaria captioned a shot of Carmen sound asleep, decked out in heart-patterned pajamas.

“Sleep sweet my little angel … ” she added. “Thank you for lighting up our holiday season.”

Carmen has been one of the main stars of her mom’s Instagram account lately, along with brothers Leonardo Ángel Charles, 11 weeks, and Rafael Thomas, 17 months.

“Anyone who doesn’t treat you with the utmost respect is not worth your time,” Baldwin recently wrote in a letter to her daughter.

“Always be kind, confident. Just nod and walk in the other direction — towards true power, happiness and grace. Waste no energy. Own your amazingness … stick together with those who see you and treat you brilliantly. So you can do the same for them #karma #love.”
