Melissa Rycroft Strickland is continuing her domination of the internet for the pursuit of cuteness at all costs to our heart swells. The Season 13 Bachelor gal —wife to husband Tye and mother of two darlings — posted the cutest baby picture of all time on April 28 and we can hardly stand it. Son Beckett arrived in the world just a week ago, and he’s already winning at sleeping, posing, and being beautiful. Like mother, like son.

In the shot, 3-year-old Ava smiles sweetly with her legs kicked up in the air, cradling her brand new baby brother in the professional picture. Take it all in, guys, cuz this is what happily ever after looks like, minus the roses.

Ava has been lighting up Mel’s Instagram for a while now, with her good looks and sweet relationship to her two-time Dancing With the Stars alum mama. Now, she’s already bonding hard with her sibling, as this is the second pic Melissa has shared of her progeny getting cozy together.

In the first shot, Ava held her little brother with the help of Dad, though we didn’t get to see his face as Beckett was still swaddled up a day or two after his birth. The 7 pound, 7 ounce babe was born on Easter and at the time, Melissa relayed Ava’s desire to get him home so she could start showing off the big sister duties she’d been practicing. Looks like she’s already well on her way!

What do you think: Is this the cutest sibling picture you’ve ever seen?
