Parents Are Now Taking 'Baby's First Pandemic' Milestone Photos

It was only a matter of time for the Internet to take hold of COVID-19 and make it go viral in a very different sense of the word. From sharing sweet stories of Italians singing from their balconies in unison, to sharing their #quarantinecrafts, to people putting their Christmas lights back on, there are some seriously sweet stories coming out during such a grim and stressful time.

Parents are also getting in on a new trend that involves their young children.

If you're a new parent in the last few years, you might be familiar with milestone or monthly photos.

It's a little dark, and these kids have absolutely no idea what's going on, but parents feel it's a way to lift others' spirits.
