This Baby's Naptime is Anything But a Snoozefest

This seriously might be the greatest thing we've ever seen on the Internet.

Laura Izumikawa is winning motherhood, one nap at a time. The LA-based mom/photographer has earned a lot of attention for the adorable photos she snaps of her four-month-old daughter....and we can 100 percent understand why. These are seriously among the cutest photos we've ever seen. 

What's so special about them, you ask? Well, for one thing, Joey Marie Choi is an absolutely adorable baby. For another, her mom's creativity is off the charts. You see, Izumikawa doesn't use her child's naptime as a chance to kick back and relax—instead she plays dress up with her baby. Izumikawa creates elaborate (and topical!) getups to rival some of the best Halloween costumes we've seen.

Hey babygirl, let me take a pik at chu. #pokemon

At just four months old, baby Joey has already dressed up as all of the following: Siaan Olympian, Beyonce, a character from Stranger Things (complete with the bloody nose, natch), Pikachu and many, many others. Yes, it's all as cute as it sounds. Trust us when we say that you could very, very easily get lost scrolling through Izumikawa's Instagram feed for a long time. 

All the single babies! 💍 #Beyonce

People are loving the photos (seriously though, how could you not?), and Izumikawa, who used to photograph weddings but now mostly shoots portraits, has already amassed over 110 thousand Instagram followers.

"Initially when I started getting a ton of online attention, there was a bit of a mother-bear type of panic and I thought about stopping," Izumikawa said in an emailed statement to Fitpregnancy.com. "But then I started receiving messages from countless people who said that the photos and videos were the highlight of their day and for some, a thing they enjoy to watch with their kids. I hope that these photos and videos will make people smile and also remind parents to have fun with their kids and not get too caught up in the seriousness of parenting. Parents who never lose their humor are the best!"

Can we all just hire this ridiculously talented mom to create our childrens' Halloween costumes this year? Please?
