I know, I know. . . another Monday. Ugh. But do you want to cry a million happy tears this Monday? If so, keep on reading, because these girls who got their Christmas wish a few weeks early are tugging at our heartstrings.

When Courtney and Steve Solstad welcomed baby Nathan to their family of five, they decided not to tell their three daughters right away. The girls had been so excited about the prospect of adopting a baby boy, and one of them, Chloe, even wrote it down on her Christmas wishlist: “For my mom and dad to have the baby they desire.”

So Courtney and Steve decided to surprise their daughters by putting Nathan under the Christmas tree.

“The girls knew nothing about Nathan until this,” Courtney wrote in the caption of the video of her girls discovering Nathan. “We met them at the door and told them that we had been out Christmas shopping and got them a gift to share. . . and it was under the tree!”

And the girls absolutely MELTED. They squealed, they cried tears of joy. The look of pure happiness on all of their faces is absolutely priceless, and it’s obvious that this is going to be one of their best Christmases ever.

“This has been one of the most magical experiences in our lives,” Courtney wrote on Facebook. “. . .Our little guy is so incredibly perfect! He is healthy and happy and just the sweetest thing you have ever seen!”

The video has since been viewed over 300,000 times and liked over 2,000 times. . . for the best reason. Christmas isn’t about presents, but it *is* about this kind of present — togetherness and love. Congratulations, Solstad family, and thanks for warming our hearts forever. <3
