After her first day away from her parents, a little girl appeared to be overjoyed when her dad came to pick her from school.

The video, posted by YouTube user xxMIA METALxx, starts with the dad filming his baby daughter wandering around her classroom before she realizes he is there. He then walks over to the half-open classroom door where he calls out to her, “Hey, baby girl.”
