It was love at first sight! 


Back in August, baby Luna got her first shout out from Elmo when mom Chrissy Teigen showed her a video of husband John Legend just casually chilling at the piano with Big Bird et al during a guest stint on Sesame Street.

Check it out:

So cool! And here's John's original post of the clip from last December:

"When John first posted this video to Instagram, Luna had no idea what Sesame Street was," Teigen explained in her caption. "She was sick and couldn't go to set when John was filming so all the characters made this video for her. This is her first time watching it and knowing how freaking epic it is."

Epic is right. I mean, how many kids get name-checked by their favorite muppet while he's busy rocking out with their dad on television? I'm gonna go ahead and guess none. And now Luna is finding out for herself what it's like to pal around with the famously furry, falsetto-pitched monster. Because in a new Instagram post, Teigen just excitedly gifted her adorable little girl with a Tickle Me Elmo toy, and trust me when I tell you that Luna's reaction will make your day:

See what I mean?

"So many silent Elmos," the proud mama explained in the caption. "Finally, one that speaks! She is in love."

So are we.
