Jamie Glassman recently had the opportunity to witness the beauty of the circle of life, and now she’s sharing it with all of us.

Her husband’s grandpa, who’s 94 years old, has been suffering with Alzheimer’s for a while now. By the time Jamie decided it was time to introduce him to their 6-month-old daughter, Elsa, he hadn’t spoken in months. Soon after meeting Elsa, however, that changed.

During one of their visits, this adorable duo were snuggled together when Jamie’s husband said “That’s so sweet — the baby loves you. Look at the way she’s looking at you!”

In the very next second, this sweet baby’s grandpa began saying “I love you.” Needless to say, it was a moment they’ll never forget!

Watch Elsa and her grandpa below, and don’t forget to share.
