Sleepy Baby and Sloth Grow Up Together

Move over puppies in the crib memes! There's a new animal sibling in town an it's probably taking a nap right now.

Baby Alia Heckathorn and her sister sloth, Daisy, are killing it with the cute. Their parents Julia and Jason Heckathorn shared pictures of their 5-month-old and her big sloth sis and now the rest of the world wants one really, really bad.

Alia and Daisy sit together, sleep together, snuggle together and read books in their mom's lap together. The two are inseparable, Julia reports. They're apparently as adorable in person as they are in this series of photos on Buzzfeed. The unlikely pair is pictured wearing matchy-matchy headbands, sure sign of an unbreakable bond.

Julia is an author of children's books, "The Hidden Clover," which feature animals and promote caring for the environment. Their family menagerie includes one baby, one sloth, a kangaroo, an anteater, sugar gliders and a cat — all of whom are featured in Julia's work.

The couple adopted the sloth before knowing Julia was pregnant with Alia. The baby met Daisy when she was only two days old and the two instantly hit it off.
