It is common for babies to wake up in the middle of the night for a feed or just to relax, stretch then go back to sleep. On one of such sleepless nights, little Oliver’s father was around to ensure that he was okay. He must have been filming this adorable little one as he woke up to a gamut of emotions.

In less than a minute, little Oliver’s face registered a series of emotions. After a good yawn, his face changed almost instantly to a frown, then to surprise. Before the father could even breathe, the expression turned to fear, then disgust.

The disgusted face scrolled as if Oliver was angry and on the verge of crying. The expression then turned to a relaxed one as his eyes adjusted to the light. The whole emotional rollercoaster was accompanied by stretching and a slight show of discomfort as if wanting to change positions.

From the video, Oliver’s father is heard asking him how he slept, to which he replies with a broad smile. The dad continues the conversation with his son, whose reply was constant smiles. When Oliver’s dad shared this moment online, he had no idea that it would go viral, with more than 10 million views as of now.
