Cute babies and Christmas elves are both pretty high on our list of favorite things. And if there’s one thing we love, it’s a cute baby dressed as a Christmas elf. Seriously, does it get any more adorable than that?

And lucky for us, on Christmas Day Nicole and Michael Phelps dressed their son Boomer as one of Santa’s elfs, and we can’t get over how stinkin’ precious he is.

The proud parents shared the pics on Boomer’s Instagram page — which has 773,000 followers. Not bad for someone who’s not even one years old! Seriously though — this isn’t just a regular cute baby pic. It’s basically THE cute baby pic. At least of the holiday season. Not a heart among us will be able to withstand the cuteness that is Boomer at this moment.

Just look!

OMG. Have you ever seen anything more precious than that smile? It’s sweeter than sugar plums, candy canes, and Christmas cookies all at once. And here’s a slightly more serious side of the cutest elf ever. Can you even handle it?

On Christmas Eve, Boomer was lucky enough to meet the big man in the red suit himself.

Donning a cozy-looking reindeer-emblazoned sweater, little Boomer looked happy as can be sitting on Santa’s lap.

Here’s one more shot of little Boomer’s first Christmas, just in case you haven’t had enough (we haven’t).

We hope the Phelps family holiday was full of happiness and love — we know it was definitely packed with cuteness! Also, might we be able to hang with Boomer sometime, guys? Maybe in some kind of baby sitting/third parent capacity?

You know where to find us if you need us.
