How's your day going so far? Need a little pick-me-up? How about this totally adorbs video that captures the moment a baby orangutan gets the chance to explore on its own for the first time.

Awwww, right?

We were tipped off to the video from a reader, who notes on the YouTube post: "While shooting a sketch at the LA Zoo, we watched this newborn orangutan's mother let it go for its first climb."
