We all love the holiday season, but no one seems to enjoy it with the same wonderment as children, taking in the decorations and lights with wide eyes.

Leading up to the holidays, TODAY is kicking off our weeklong "Merry Moments" series, inviting fans on the plaza and at home to take part a holiday theme each day. Who better to get things started than holiday babies?

Take a look at all of the adorable holiday babies below — we dare you to make it all the way through without letting at least one "aww!" slip out.
